Question about Keurig B60 Coffee Maker

My Keurig B60 is Suddenly Brewing WEAK Coffee

My Keurig K-Cup machine has been making nice strong cups of coffee for over 8 months, which was great. I loved it. Now suddenly it has started to brew super weak coffee. (Barely tinged with the coffee color/flavor---not even drinkable!) I am using the same brand of K-cups that I have always used (Gloria Jean).
I have already descaled it & still the problem persists.
Help! I miss my Gloria Jean coffee!

I don't have a solution but have just experienced the same problem and am baffled. I am using the same beans same grind. In fact using the exact same grind it went from great one day to weak the next day.  I always run it for 15 - 16 secs to get the shot and that hasn't changed. Pressure and temperature appear fine. I cleaned the top of the top filter which was a little dirty but not seriously bad - no change. The coffee flow which is normally chocolate coloured to start with is just mid brown.

I don't have a solution, I have the same problem. My Kuerig didn't tell me it needed to be descaled, but after so many months of daily use I thought I should do it. So, I descaled my Kuerig last night and gently wiped out the part that the pod goes into and now the water seems to be pushing through the pods too fast, making terribly weak coffee. What did I do??? I am really upset. I love my Kuerig.

Basing on personal experience (you can find more on Google probably), solutions are:

On percolated (filter) coffee machines:

Check water temp, if water temp is insufficient , most common is scale heating element , faulty element, faulty thermostat.
Check if water is dripping right at the center of the filter, if it is dripping on one side because the orifice is clogged, that can result in weak coffee.
Coffee blend not well distributed on filter basket.

On Espresso machines:

Check water temp, same as filter coffee machines (thermostat element, scale on heating chamber).
Ensure that coffee is filled correctly in the filter cup (fill at level), and well pressed.
Ensure that the coffee mixture that you are using is not too coarse, buy the apposite one for espresso.
Ensure that you are not leaving the machine brewing for a time that is too long, and Italian coffee cup is very small, approximately one regular shot.

On the hob moka pots (espresso, Moka and Bialetti type):

This are the trickiest ones, you need art and practice to get a good espresso with a Moka, but when you learn, the result is better than what you may get with an home electrical espresso maker.
The frame on the hob must be not too strong, and the mixture coarse but well pressed, with water at level tag, or you will get a weak coffee.
On Mokas a good strategy is keeping hob at minimum, and turning up the flame at top when coffee starts coming out.


Note: insufficient pressure and clogged lines on electric machines never give you a weak coffee, exactly the opposite.
Not pressed mixture always gives weak coffee, but too much pressed mixture may give you coffee with bad taste.

After experiencing this for a couple of cups I tried using the filter basket with my own ground coffee. When running, water was spewing out around the sides of the holder, thus not going through the coffee. Making a weak cup. Seeing that lead me to look up into the area where the spike pierces the middle of the cup when the unit is closed. There is a rubber grommet that, seeing where it is located, seals the injection tube to the top of the K-Cup. I slid the grommet down a it on the spike/water tube and after that. I got perfect coffee once again. I imagine the grommet is worn and needs replacing but as of now. Making sure it is slid down before making a cup seems to be working fine!

Hope this helps!!
