Our Keurig keeps kicking off the GFI outlet when
This is not an exact science. The GFI is trying to trip when it thinks you have a dangerous short. But a powerful device will require a surge when it starts up that is always pretty close to what appears to be a dangerous short. You could switch the GFI out with one rated higher, like 20 amps instead of 15 amps. It would be harder to tell if the Keurig is drawing excessively, because it would only be a transient, for a fraction of a second. You would almost need an oscilloscope to tell what it was doing accurately.
My advice would be to try a surge protector, such as:
The idea being that a surge protector has capacitors in it, to slow down or clip rapid current flow or voltage build up. Which should reduce any eroneous tripping. Basically this one is a plug in version of what you have in the wall, but higher quality and easier to install.
After turning our Keurig on, it heats up and then
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.

I don't have any first-hand experience with this brand. However, it sounds like the coffee grounds are being partially bypassed by the hot water.
One clue that will help diagnose this is: does the carafe fill up to the amount of water that was in the reservoir? If not, that suggests not all the water is being cycled through.
See if the reservoir is completely empty at the end of the brew cycle. Look for any coffee-colored water in the reservoir at the end of the cycle. That would indicate, to me, a defective feed valve in the water path.
