The water coffee just dribbles out

I cleaned my brewer with white vinegar and used the paperclip trick. The water comes out nicely when there is no K-Cup or if I use the cup that you put your own coffee in. When I use a K-Cup, the water coffee just dribbles out. It's got to be related to that tube and how the coffee exits the basket when the K-Cup is in there, but I just can't figure out what the problem is...

Dump the Kuerig and buy a different coffee maker.. Ive had 3 Kuerigs and they all quit. Waste of money...Im done with Kuerig.

IMO most owners just use their Keurig everyday until it quits working properly. Keurigs need maintenance more than other coffee makers. You need to clean the head with a paper clip occasionally, run a brew without a k-cup (will help keep coffee grounds out of your cup) and clean Keurig with vinegar every 2 months. My first Keurig was a B70 that I purchased at Goodwill for $5.99. I now have a Keurig K575 with Carafe, I can use any k-cup and have all menu options using a special clip purchased at Amazon.

I purchase Keurigs at Goodwill and get them working properly and have given 6 Keurigs to family members and 2 to friends. I love Keurigs!!!!

What special clip

da

@donna wilborne - Full Menu Clip, Metal Freedom Clip by Geesta on Amazon $10.99. You receive 2 metal clips 2 orange tabs plus extra orange stickers, You just snap (1) clip on and install (1) orange tab. The cost will be recouped quickly because you can use any k cup or use a refillable. You will no longer get the "Oops Message".

@Dan Taylor - I was not aware of those clips. I use the My K-Cup, which also unlocks the full menu, but, I use my own coffee. I'll look into the clip, though. Thanks!

Great instruction. I had previous relative success in clearing our K40 with OEM descaling steps plus blowing out the needles with a handheld air canister. When it now developed seemingly incurable enlarged prostrate dribbles, your solution worked like a charm!

Now if I could just do this with my prostate all would be happy ;-)

After conducting all recommended cleaning procedures i still had a very slow drip rate, I found a small piece of plastic in the bottom K-Cup needle punch shaft, ( it was plasic from a K-Cup). It was very difficult to see, I had to remove the K- Cup holder and using a flash light to enhance visability of the punch shaft hole and needle area. I seen a small white piece of plastic in the shaft. I took a sewing needle and carfully removed the piece of plastic K-Cup from the punch shaft. I have had coffee grounds in the upper punch shaft that interfered with proper flow. This was the first time the bottom punch was the guilty party. After removing the debris from the shaft, my 3 year old Keurig 2.0 ran like i just pulled it out of the box. Reading Keurig issues on this site has helped me resolve my problem. I wanted to pass this experience on, in the event it may help others. Coffee grounds and calcium build up are not the only flow obstructions you may come across.

Our three year old Keurig suddenly started to run very slowly and produce only a partial cup of coffee. I tried all of the recommended fixes, even taking the upper check valve out and soaking it in vinegar. Cleaned all the needles and outlets with no success. We bit the bullet and bought a new Keurig and… it ran exactly the same way. I then remembered one person commenting online that there was a problem with her K-cup. I purchased a 12 pack of Green Mountain K-cups, reasoning that since Green Mountain is the parent of Keurig they should know how to make good K-cups. It worked!!! Flow was fast and the quantity of coffee was as expected.

The problem started at the same time we purchased an order of Donut House K-cups online. Same brand that we have used for a couple of years. I believe the paper filter in their K-cups is now more restrictive as there is a large amount of liquid left in the used K-cup. So now we use the same K-cup for two passes on the Keurig. Usually two identical medium size settings work best. Still have to use up over 200 of the faulty Donut House K-cups and when gone no more.

== Problem may be with the K-cup''

The article above solved my issue. I never realized there was an opening in the bottom needle..turns out i had coffee grounds in it. Once I cleaned it out (with a paper clip)_ coffee brewed normally. TY.

You can purchase a Keurig needle cleaner. It's a simple process of turning off the Keurig, filling the little pod-sized cleaner with water, inserting it, and then opening and closing the lid at least 5 times to clean the needle. You can also remove the entire pod holder unit, being careful to not touch the needle, and the shovel tray under that. Then just rinse both with water, dry, and replace. There are YouTube videos that show how. It solved the drip I was having after a brew and sped up the brew too.

I cleaned the top and bottom needle using a open safety pin and a flashlight to see. The bottom needle had chunks of coffee grounds around underneath a little washer. After cleaning, Yay it's working again .

It’s better to call toll free number on the Keurig US website or keurig canada for further assistance because if the motor or any part is removed from the coffee maker then 1 year warranty will be up. If your coffee maker warranty expires you will get a percentage discount depending on how old is your keurig coffee maker. 1 year warranty on your keurig coffee maker can be replaced free of charge.
