Introduzione

There seems to be an issue with the Keurig Single Serve Coffeemaker Brewing System. After a while it appears as if scale build-up or other contaminants prevent the Keurig from brewing full 12oz. It takes longer to brew, the Keurig becomes louder and it dispense on the average 4oz or less. This is a "quick and dirty" guide only to assist in fixing this. The Keurig for this guide came from a workshop and is used quite frequently under less than optimal conditions.

Parti

Nessuna parte specificata.

  1. Keurig K40 not brewing/dispensing 12oz Open the Keurig all the way to remove the K-cup Holder The K-cup holder simply pulls straight up. There might be a bit of resistance from some spring clips. The flaky debris is actually coffee from reusable K-cup filters.

    I think the first step before disassembly should be to unplug the machine FOR SAFETY!

  2. K-cup insert removed. Clean with hot water as needed. On the bottom of the K-cup insert is a tapered needle that punctures the bottom of the K-cup. On the side of it is a small hole. Use a paper clip (or similar) and insert it in there to remove any scale, coffee grounds etc. Next is to clean the top needle. It is  trickier since it is somewhat hard to reach around the sides of the needle. There will be three holes around the needle. Open the Keurig all the way, and again use a paper clip (or similar).

    Lay the unit on its side. There is a rubber fitting around the upper needle you can easily remove and clean. Use a q-tip to clean on and around the needle.

    Wow, thanks. My dear “Madame Keurig” had been atherosclerotic — just wall-to-wall high-stress and noisy “short cups” with no hope in sight. I had run this device for 26 months with no problem, and never installed the recommended filter that snaps down on top the water input. So I did that — and a couple weeks later, Madame started getting balky and sick — not to mention very noisy. So today thanks to this suggestion, I got a long Phillips head screwdriver and got the filter out. I tried blowing through it — it was very hard to blow through. So I washed it under running water with a tooth brush and tried blowing through it again. Night and day — there was no comparison. Air went straight through it with no resistance. I put the filter back in, and Madame immediately began to perform correctly. Happy day!

  7. Test the check valve. Blowing air in it from the boiler side should cause it to open. Repeat that a couple of times to loosen any sediments etc. It will also help to run some hot water from the K-cup side into the check valve and shake it up. Once it is cleaned, replace the check valve and the tie straps. Reassemble the Keurig

    kimbasstyle - Replica

    Problem solved. I think it was actually the first fix of clearing out the air slot in the bottom needle that did the trick. Thanks! $179.00 saves from not buying a new machine. ;-)

    Ray - Replica

    what if you cannot blow air into the valve? Does that mean you have a bad valve and need to replace the entire machine?

    Kristal - Replica

    @gold0348 if you are trying it from the boiler side but cannot pass air through it, could be a stuck valve. You would not have to replace the machine but you’d have to try to find a valve. You could also try to use a small wooden pencil etc. to gently apply pressure against the valve by inserting the pencil into the boiler side opening.

    oldturkey03 - Replica

    According to Kuerig, the machine has a lifetime warranty. That said, Normally all you need is a paperclip to clean the ports as described above. I ran a pot of vinegar through mine to remove all the scale inside but Kuerig says this normally isn’t necessary. Don’t forget to run a couple of tanks of clean water afterwards to remove the vinegar taste. They have a descaling powder mix they recommend but told me vinegar was fine too. In any case, if you can’t get it working right, just take it over to Bed Bath and Beyond and exchange it for a new one.

    In taking this area apart, I think I may have damaged the hose leading to the check valve, is there a way to get that hose replaced?

awesome thank you kindley

racinnut2001 - Replica

Outstanding presentation. I've had my Keurig apart before. However, as I use well water and don't have the best filtration system, mine tends to clog frequently.

I will add however, that the case for, at least some Keurig coffee makers have clips holding the cover in place that can be rather difficult to release.

Bill Leach - Replica

I should add, excellent photography!

This guide and the photos are excellent! Kudos!

However, after precisely following each step I did NOT find any debris, from the K-cup holder, thru the top puncture needle, through the working check valve. Since NO clogs there, the problem is elsewhere.

Bob McGhee - Replica

I thought that, too, until I rinsed the cup holder under some hot water and smacked it upside down on the sink a few times. Two pretty large coffee grounds came out of somewhere when I did that. Now it works fine. Good luck!

Bucky -

Thank you for your diligence in providing this guide. My check valve was all gummed up....45 minutes later, it is making great coffee again!

paulcrustad - Replica

Excellent...Works like a charm. My K-cup holder was the culprit.

pskepple - Replica

I thought my old Keurig coffee maker was about to give up the ghost. It had slowed to just a trickle and wouldn't fill my cup anymore. This morning I took it apart and cleaned it, easily within 30 minutes from start to finish, using these simple step-by-step instructions with pictures. It's problem was clogged needles, top and bottom. Now it works like it's brand new again. These instructions saved me from replacing it this afternoon as I'd planned. The only expense I'm out was one paperclip and two plastic tie-ties. Not a bad deal if you ask me. Seriously, not a bad deal at all.

Bucky - Replica

After a long hour I figured out how to fix it. I give old turkey 3 a 30 for his directions and patted my FEMALE self on the back for a job well done.

Had a heck of a time getting the top to come off: it did not lift up and pull forward easily. Other than that problem, the cleaning process went fine. Thk you so much for posting those instructions.. I was about ready to toss my Keurig and go back to my “Mr. Coffee” Brewer!

david milright - Replica

Thanks for your great photos and very clear instructions. After doing all of your steps I ran an empty cycle and then the “descale” light came on. So, I ran half a gallon of vinegar through it and that worked like a champion…. for two days (total of three K-Cups) now it’s back to the same light trickle of water and the “descale” light is back on. I’ve already replaced the reservoir with a brand new on. Any idea? Could it be a bad check valve? Where can one find these parts?

Gary Bennett - Replica

Worked great for me!— with the exception that I've had trouble getting the cover back on correctly. I'll try removing it and repositioning it again today. It is now working alright as far as brewing goes, but something is binding the cover when I open and shut it to put in a K-cup. It makes a loud snapping noise unless I press down on the back of the cover with my hand when opening or closing it. But thanks for this great “remedy “!

Preston Smith - Replica

Did you end up getting your cover back on properly? I am having trouble with that too. Thanks!

Sarah Fraser -

If you remove the top cover. There are 2 black looking tabs inside the machine, that are across from each other. The top needs to line up with them or hook in. You can test it by closing the lid before you put the crews back in

Elaine Ketchum ell -

I'm having trouble putting my top cover too. Don't see the notches.

Son. This was the exact fix. I tried it the first time and it didn’t work. Followed the steps again, and spent a bit more effort on step 5. That was precisely the issue. Thank you for taking the time to make this help. Took me ten minutes to take apart and reassemble.

Nathan Allen - Replica

My machine was making a clicking sound like it was trying to flush water through but none was coming out. These directions worked perfectly for me. On the first try I didn’t spend enough time on step 5, and it didn’t work. But going through again and taking the time to flush the check valve did the trick.

Thank you!

Nathan Allen - Replica

I cleared the check valve as instructed and I still have water coming out of the side instead of the top any thoughts

Still only 8 oz. I’ll brew a cup tomorrow to see if it comes out faster. May just have to accept 8oz cups

@elliek don’t forget the little filter inside the reservoir in step #4. You’ll be amazed by the things this little bugger can cause if it is clogged.

oldturkey03 -

I am having trouble getting the top to fit right. I’ve tightened the front screws but the back part of the top is preventing it from closing fully. Any thoughts?

Stormy Weather - Replica

In this case, the upper check valve was the problem - it was sticking. One giveaway was that blowing into the overflow return to the reservoir with a soda straw, gave bubbles out the lower reservoir (check valve) connection and this temporarily cleared the sticking upper check valve. After a while, it would begin sticking again and the excess hot water was returned to the reservoir.

I found that a plastic soda straw was the right diameter to mate with the upper check valve, which in turn mates with off the shelf (home Depot) plastic tubing. That way, hot water could flow right through. and it took several minutes to clean out the residue inside. My version was the Kitchenaid that had the reservoir screen in the removable filter holder - no need to remove the check valve to get the screen. The Kitchenaid has a paper charcoal filter that has to be replaced periodically instead.

Chester Heath - Replica

I would like to add one other thing that I found on one of my Keurig units. When you remove the water reservoir look into the hole under the reservoir where the water flows into the unit ( you may need a bright light ). You should see black plastic with checker pattern holes. My unit had build up which was narrowing the square holes off ( vinegar flush through unit had not removed this scale ) . I mechanically cleaned each little hole with a pointed toothpick and laid the unit on its side at the sink and flushed out the residue with the sink spray nozzle. This solved solved my problem of slow water draw down in the reservoir at the start of the brew cycle. It was taking twice as long to get water into the system before the brew cycle would start. This might stress the internal pump and cause premature failures . Guess that’s why they came out with the new 2.0 version which appears to use some type of plunger pump for the water which gives that clickety-click sound when brewing.

Robert Perkins - Replica

Deann Kirby - Replica

S G Turner - Replica

Thank you!

Suggestion, on step 2, you should show a picture of the disassembled cup holder. I was not aware it comes apart until I used a paperclip to clean the pin hole and observed that the paper clip went into the bottom of the holder. It makes it easier to clean if you pop off the bottom “cap” of the holder.

josephy - Replica

I got quite the surprise this morning when I lifted out yesterday's Kcup and a bug crawled out and then crawled into the machine. I ran 2 tanks of vinegar through but paranoid there is a bug body in there. Do you think i'll be able to see enough of the inner workings by following your guide? I got takeout coffee this morning and bought a $9.00 5-cup coffeemaker as a backup. I love my Keurig and hope I can restore it!

Missy - Replica

@mamapeep Whatever bug crawled out of the Keurig is most likely long gone. It just liked the leftover K-cup. Since you already cleaned the “plumbing” of the Keurig I am pretty sure it is not anywhere near your water supply.

Have an old 2011 Platinum B70 that quit pumping the water. I put vinegar in the water holder and let it sit for 24 hrs and still would not work. So that is why I found this site. I was hoping the vinegar would loosen things up but still would not pump water. So I picked it up off the floor about 6 in. and gently let it drop down on the floor. I did this 3 times. Sure enough I must have jared something loose and it began to pump. Then I descaled it with 48 oz of white vinegar according to directions (let it sit 4 hrs when add water light comes on) after you run the vinegar through before you rinse with clear water. Works like brand new. Had one other problem in past that I can tell you about. The on/off switch would jam and was so tight I could not turn it on. Called Keurig and they said it could not be fixed and offered me a discount on new one. Well, I decided I would spray WD-40 on the switch. I laid the machine on its side so WD-40 could run inside. Yes, that worked.

Barbara Othon - Replica

This worked perfect! I still can’t get the top to fit on right, but everything else works like new. The steps and the pictures were very clear and easy to understand. Thank you!

Kristie Layne - Replica

I tried and I tried these steps to no avail. I spent FAR TOO MUCH time repeating Step 6. Before replacing the cover, I watched my machine try to brew. I think it’s toast. I’ve had my Keurig for 6.5 years. When it tries to brew it spurts out a little water & then no water even moves up the hoses out of the pump.

starfirelite79 - Replica

Meanwhile, since I cleaned the water tank filter, it’s happily bubbling away. I need my morning cup of coffee. I have not had it yet today. I’m ready to throw my Keurig against a brick wall.

Thanks

When I shoved the paperclip up the needles to see if they were plugged, which they weren’t I took the top off and noticed that there was little holes in the tubing.Must have been from shoving the paperclip up inside.Though many people said no harm can be done. Now how do I fix the little holes? Glue?

rosanne623 - Replica

Do these instructions help with the 2.0 models? I’m not afraid to tear something apart, but I am a little worried about the electronics and the touch screen. My brewer is only about a year or two old, (I bought it used from a friend). I’ve cleaned it with vinegar, and the descaling solution that is $13 dollars a bottle. No luck, I’m considering trying CLR because I know I have extremely hard water and it builds up scale on everything. I started out using bottled water, but sometimes I have put my tap water in it. As soon as the hubs gets up and has his coffee, I’m going to try to clean the screen at the bottom of the tank, first. If that doesn’t work, then I’m going for the full tear down. I NEED my coffee. I’m pretty sure my water is the culprit, because it’s progressively gotten worse over the last couple months.
