Question about Krups KM4065 12-Cup Coffee Maker

1 Answer

I have Krups KT 406 coffee maker that splashes hot water out of the vent holes on the top of the coffee maker. I have run 1:4 vinegar/water solution through the machine. No change. Still splashes water out the top of the steam vents. I measured 6 cups of water in. Only 1 1/2 cups go into server. Rest splashes out on the counter top.

Did you try it this way?
Before descaling, remove the filter holder (f).
• You may use either the Krups descaling solution diluted in 8 ounces of water or
8 ounces of white vinegar.
• Pour the solution or vinegar into the water reservoir and start the coffee machine
(without coffee).
• Allow half the liquid to run into the carafe, then switch off and let stand for 1 hour.
• Restart the coffee machine to complete the cycle.
• Rinse the coffee machine by running it through 2 full cycles with water only
I would make vinegar stronger and leave it in for a few hours or more.

Clean a keurig coffe maker

Cleaning & descaling your Keurig brewer is an important step to enjoying the best tasting coffee and keeping your brewer in good shape for years.
4 Comments 2

How often you need to do it depends heavily on how often you use your brewer and how "hard" your local water is ("hard" meaning how many minerals are in it). I try to do this 3-4 times a year.
Comment Recommended For You 3 640x960.jpg

Open the top of your brewer and remove the K-cup holder. CAUTION: There's are two sharp needles in there. Be careful.
Comment 4 640x960.jpg

The cup holder is dishwasher safe. You can toss it in the dishwasher if you want. Otherwise a good rinse under warm running water is usually good. There's a sharp needle in here, so be careful.
Comment 5 640x960.jpg

Turn the cup holder over and ensure these holes at the bottom are free of any obstruction.
Comment 6 640x960.jpg

The drip-tray is removable. Give it a good clean either by hand or in the dishwasher.
Comment 7 640x960.jpg

The upper portion of the K-cup holder also has a needle. This needle has three holes in it. Insert a straightened paper clip into each hole to remove any buildup or obstructions.
1 Comment 8 640x960.jpg

Here's a close up: There's nothing you can break in here, so use some force and get that paperclip a good inch in and wiggle it around vigorously. Repeat this for the two other holes in the needle.
1 Comment 9 640x960.jpg

Use a damp, soft cloth to wipe away any coffee grinds or water stains in and around the cup holder area, and down the front of the brewer.
Comment 10 640x960.jpg

Be careful of that needle inside when wiping it down.
Comment 11 640x960.jpg

Put the K-cup holder back in the chamber. Make sure it's the right way around by aligning the arrows at the top of the holder.
Comment 12 640x960.jpg

Empty the water in the brewer's external reservoir.
2 Comments 13 640x960.jpg

Refill the reservoir with undulated white vinegar and replace on your brewer.
1 Comment 14 640x960.jpg

Run four large cup brew cycles. DO NOT use a K-cup, just run it empty . Dispose of the hot vinegar after each. This pushes the vinegar through the inside heating tank as well as all the valves inside.
2 Comments 15 640x960.jpg

Leave your brewer to stand, powered on for four hours. This allows the vinegar time to break down any build up in the tubes and valves inside the brewer.
1 Comment 16 640x960.jpg

Discard any leftover vinegar then refill the reservoir with water only.
Comment 17 640x960.jpg

Run large cup cycles until "Add Water" is displayed on your brewer's screen. This washes out all traces of vinegar from the insides of the system.
Comment 18

If you notice a vinegar-like smell or taste to the water coming out of your brewer, refill the reservoir with water a second time and run hot water cycles until empty.

Congratulations!! Your Keurig brewer is now clean and your ready to enjoy full cups of delicious coffee for months to come!

How do i clean my stainless steel krups coffee maker before use model kt 611d50


Just run one full pot of cold water through it. Do not add coffee. Then it is ready for use. Caution - Do not make coffee right away because you can break the glass carafe by adding cold water to a hot carafe. Also the hot plate would be very hot too.

What do you do when it says calc. on the display?


Calc is indicating that it's time to descale the lime build up inside your coffee maker. Most machines are easily cleaned by running a solution of 4 parts water to 1 part vinegar. Run this solution through a regular coffee cycle (no coffee). After running this solution, you may want to run straight water once more to ensure there's no vinegar aftertaste. Your machine will now be clean and the CALC message should disappear. If not, post back with the Model # of your Krups coffee maker for further instructions. Some machines have a Descale or Self Cleaning option built into them.

Every few weeks, my 4-cup Starbucks Barista Quattro coffee maker overflows. It seems that the water either flows into the basket too rapidly or out of the basket too slowly. The basket overflows, and...


If your in a hard wayter area the basket overflow valve may be need cleaning. Fill with white vinegar and run a full cycle. Rinse by running 2 or 3 cycles with clean water. You may need to repeat the vinegar cycle if the problem persists.

There isn't enough pressure to pump water through the coffee


Chalk in the system, let it run a couple of times with plain vinegar. just fill the machine with about half a liter (one water container) vinegar and collect the vinegar in a cup so you can reuse it. run the full 0.5 liter, wait an hour and repeat. Than run 2 full watercontainers plain water. should work again. Cheaper than antichalk fluid and works the same

Need to find manual for bunn coffee maker


You can go to Bunn.com and print one out or I think buy one. To clean you need a deliming spring and white vinegar. You put the spring up into the hole where your water comes out of to empty into your carafe. Remove the grounds basket. then remove the spray head by twisting off. Then you are ready to put the spring into the hole. Insert all but a couple of inches into it. If it has been awhile you may have to force it by twisting and pushing. Work the spring up and down and it will eventually go in and out with no problem. Check the holes in the spray head to make sure they are clean and free of any build up. As you know Bunn has a reservoir where water is kept hot. You put in and what is in the reservoir comes out. Pour 1 quart of white vinegar into the pot. Let it sit for two or three hours or longer is OK. After your wait pour water in 8 to 10 times to flush all vinegar or you can unplug the pot and turn upside down over the sink. If you do this while the water is still hot be careful. Most of the water will come out of the hole where you put the deliming spring into. Some will come out of the top possibly. If you do it this way make sure you fill back with water before you turn it back on. Repeat vinegar flushes again if you water isin't running clear yet.

Froth control problems


Your vinegar did the job: it as removed the deposits, now these deposits are clogging the four holes porcelain valve.....if the froth lever is not broken.
Remove all the screw you can see on the top and under the top of it, remove the cover, unscrew the frothing device down to the porcelain valve consisting of two 4 holes discs, clean them, and voila!
