Just run it once with no k-cup or tank on it so it can't refill when it's done.

Water spits in tank but all inlets are open


It may be time to descale. Most models will give you a message when it's time to have the mineral deposits cleaned.
HERES HOW TO DO THAT...
Empty water resevoir. Disable auto off. Pour approx 48 oz of undiluted white vinegar into resevoir. PLace large mug on drip plate, run brew cycle, dump contents of mug in sink. DO NOT USE A K-CUP.
Repeat this process until the add water light is indicated.
Let brewer stand for at least 4 hours while still on.
Discard any residual vinegar in the resevoir and rinse thorughly.
AFTER approx 4 hours...fill resevoir with water.
RINSE:
PLace a large mug on the drip plate and water brew cycle. Pour the contents of the mug into the sink.
REPEAT this brew process until the add water light is indicated.
YOU MAY NEED TO REPEAT THIS "RINSE" PROCESS if you notice any residual taste.

Keurig model B40 How do I empty the resevoir , I can empty the cold watet tank. We are moving so need to completely empty all water.


Hi,

The water reservoir lifts out. There are two tabs on the side which lock it in place. You may have to pres on them to remove it. If you are wanting to completely empty the entire machine, I have found an instruction manual and have instructions for purging: Fill reservoir with clean water and replace on machine with lid on it. Raise and lower handle without K cup inserted. Wait for the red light next to "heating goes off.
The blue lights on the control center will begin flashing. Put a cup on the drip tray and press "Brew"

When finished, repeat brew procedure 2 or 3 times and inner tank should be empty.

Hope this helps, if it does, please place a vote for me.

Good luck with your move,

Every other cup seems to stop brewing after a few drops come out. Water drips back into resevoir. I tried the paper clip clean out to no avail!


Sorry to read about your issue.

The brewer should be de-scaled at least every 3-6 months. Scale is harmless, but if left unattended, it can hinder optimal brewer performance. De-scaling your brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, removable water reservoir and other parts of the brewer that come in contact with water. Better water quality and water heating means a better cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa or iced beverage. We recommend de-scaling your brewer at least every 6 months (every 3 months if your water has a high mineral content). The de-scaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar.

Take 48 oz of white vinegar. place in tank. pretend you are making coffee (Do No Use K Cup). let the water fill you mug. then empty that mug. Do it again until tank is empty. then let sit for 4 hours.
Then fill with fresh water to the top. let that tank of water run thru. towards the end taste the water.
If you taste vinegar..use more clean water, until the taste is ok.

How can I demineralize my rowenta iron? I use carbon filtered water in it. The last time I used it white stuff came out of the steam ports and it sounded like there was sediment inside when I moved the...


Fill the resevoir with a 25% vinegar to water solution & turn on the iron until it steams. Allow to cool and empty resevoir then rinse with clean water. Fill up resevoir and & turn on the iron until it steams again. Cool, empty & rinse again. DONE!

Only use distilled or reverse osmosis water in your iron. This will reduce mineral build up.

Empty boiler


Turn main water off to the water heater, it may be a valve on cold side coming in to shut off. Next turn power off to the heater and drain the tank the drain will be located near the bottom of the tank.
You will need a water hose to connect to the drain to run water outside. Open a faucet hot side to allow you to drain the tank.

Upon reinstall connect the tank up and fill tank and open up hot side on one faucet at a time to purge out air from system before turning power back on. Make sure you have water flowing from each faucet's hot side before turning power back on.

My coffeemaker stops sucking in water and it shuts down even though it has full water in the resevoir.Sometimes in the middle of brewing a cup of coffee it will indicate not ready and stop or shut down.


These brewers (especially B77, usually from Costco) are defective & Keurig is replacing them with new units @ no cost. Just call the toll free # (866-901-2739) & they will ship out a replacement in 3 to 10 business days. I own (2) of these & they have both been replaced. Even if not the above mentioned model, call them anyway & see what they will do for you......

Over heating and anti-freeze spilling out of resevoir tank. New thermostat, new water pump, new resvoir tank, radiator 1 year old, new gasket seals. Can not figure out why it is leaking.


Your head gasket has blown or the cylinder head has crancked.You are getting compression in the water system thats why you are getting spill out from resevoir tank.

They emptied my water heater to move it without cutting the power, then when I got home I reconnected the water and filled it up and now it wont heat up the water


You have either a burnt heating element or your thermostat is bad. The tank must be drained to check and replace both of these. They are both located under access doors on the side of the tank.
