Caring for your Brewer

Regular cleaning keeps your brewer running smoothly. Always be sure to turn off and unplug your brewer before cleaning. 

Brewer Exterior
Keep your Keurig® brewer looking its best by cleaning the exterior from time to time. Just clean with a damp, soapy, lint-free, non-abrasive cloth. Never immerse the brewer in water or other liquids.

Drip Tray
The drip tray can hold up to 10 ounces of overflow and should be emptied and cleaned occasionally. To remove it, slide it toward you, keeping it level to avoid spilling. Rinse and clean with a damp, soapy, lint-free, non-abrasive cloth.

Water Reservoir
It is normal over time for discoloration, spotting, or staining to appear in the water reservoir. Results will vary depending on the mineral content of the water used but will not affect the operation of the brewer. However, be sure to clean the water reservoir regularly to minimize build-up. To access the water reservoir, lift the lid and then clean the inside of the reservoir with a damp, non-abrasive, lint-free cloth. Lower the lid when finished.

K-Cup® Pod Holder
To remove the K-Cup® pod holder from the brewer, lift the handle and grasp the top of the K-Cup® pod holder with one hand while pushing up on the bottom of the K-Cup® pod holder from underneath with the other until it releases. After cleaning, align theK-Cup® pod holder with the opening using the two front ribs as a guide and snap into place from the top.

Funnel 
The funnel can be removed from the K-Cup® pod holder by pulling on it until it pops off. To replace it, just snap it back onto the K-Cup® pod holder.

Exit Needle
Remove the pod holder assembly and detach the funnel. Locate the exit needle on the inside bottom of the K-Cup® pod holder. Insert a straightened paper clip into the exit needle to loosen the clog and push it out.

Entrance Needle
Lift the brewer handle and locate the entrance needle on the underside of the lid. To clean both holes in the needle, hold the brewer handle in the upward position, and with your other hand, carefully insert a straightened paper clip into both holes. Gently move it around to loosen any coffee grounds. Lower the handle completely and run two water-only brew cycles. Do not insert a K-Cup® pod.

Descaling your Brewer

You should describe your brewer every 3-6 months. Properly follow the descaling procedure. Depending on the mineral content of your water, calcium deposits or scales may build up in your brewer. Scale is nontoxic but if left unattended can hinder brewer performance. Regularly descaling your brewer every 3-6 months helps maintain the heating element and other internal parts that come in contact with water. Calcium deposits may build up faster, making it necessary to descale more often.

Descaling Procedure
Before you begin, you will need a large ceramic mug, fresh water, Keurig® Descaling Solution, and access to a sink. Do not use a paper cup. Ensure that there is no beverage pod in the K-Cup® pod holder. Please allow approximately 45 minutes for the descaling procedure.

Descaling Solution Rinse
Turn on your brewer. Pour one-third (4.6oz.) of the Keurig® Descaling Solution into the water reservoir then add slightly less than 3/4 cups of fresh water. Place a large ceramic mug on the drip tray plate. Lift the handle but do not add a K-Cup® pod. After 5 seconds, lower the handle and press the BREW button. Once the solution is dispensed, discard the hot contents into the sink.
