Run a 1/2 pot of vinegar through it 2-3 times (I reuse it) and then run water 1-2 times to get the vinegar smell out. This cleans the mineral deposits from your water that are clogging it.

SOURCE: Bunn Coffee Maker Leaks out the bottom

I have an older BUNN B10 pour-o-matic that I thought was leaking from the bottom. Upon close inspection, I found that it was leaking from the worn out washers located on the top of the tank, allowing water to run down the sides of the stainless steel tank. There's a great fix offered on Fixya.com that suggests going to a hardware store and buying a Gardner Bender GHG-1575 rubber grommet with a 3/4" hole and install it into the large hole in the basin. Then place a metal washer on top of the grommet and snug it up with the threaded fitting. Many folks say it's a great fix. I went a different route. I called BUNN customer service and spoke to a very nice woman who understood my needs and sent out a free repair kit that contained a new fitting, washer, and seal. I received it in a few days and it's working great. Beats going out and buying parts for a work around repair. BTW, the repair kit is called "Universal Retail Seal Replacement Kit #37091.0000"

How to descale keurig elite 40 coffee maker with vinigar


Unfortunately you will need to use vinegar. The acetic acid in vinegar is strong enough to clean most brewing machines.

Use distilled white vinegar.

Steam wont work on my coffee machine


If you've used the machine for awhile, and you have not cleaned/descaled it, it may be clogged with mineral deposits. Citric acid, a white natural mild acid is a good descaler. It comes in powder form and readily dissolves in water. You can locate citric acid on the web (ebay). White vinegar also works, about 1/2 & 1/2 with water. Run the solution through the machine to descale it. It may take a few treatments to get all the mineral deposits out. Use about 2 tbsp of baking soda in water afterwards to neutralize the acid.Hope this Helps!!

I have a Keurig Vue. I have descaled and cleaned the product on schedule but it leaks water from all around the brew head and only 5-6 oz of coffee make it into the mug. I tried to clean out the pin also...


Remove and clean the Brew Head, with the V700 the way to remove would be to open the lid with the handle, place your fingers around the Brew Head, there are tabs to each side, press tabs and pull down and toward you. Wash this out thoroughly in your kitchen sink. Now before replacing the Brew Head, with the handled lid up, turn the back of the brewer so that it is facing you...Look straight down into the top of the brewer, you will see the needles, use an old toothbrush to clean them. Replace the Brew Head and descale the brewer with White Vinegar (do NOT dilute with water) or Keurig descale solution (purchased only through their website). The video to watch the descale instructions is: www.keurig.com/customerservice

Hope this helps!

MY KEURIG B70 IS CONTINUALLY PROMPTING TO "PRIME"


Hi, Lauren..
You can download another manual here.

Cleaning any coffee brewer is essentially the same. The easiest way is to brew one or more pots of white vinegar... it'll stink up your kitchen, but it's effective at removing build-ups and mineral deposits. Be sure to follow up these "vinegar brews" with several "plain water brews" to remove all the vinegar!

Also, if your water reservoir isn't clean (open the lid & do a finger swipe), you can use a brush to clean it or - what I do - wad up a paper towel or two, attach it to the end of a long-handled wooden spoon, and use that to get down deep into the reservoir & scrub it as much as you can before the vinegar treatment.

Alternatively, you can spend $3 or $4 for packaged cleaning compounds at stores like Williams & Sonoma.

Good luck!

My keurig coffee maker is flashing the words DE SCALE. What does that mean and how do I fix it?


"Scale" is deposits of minerals, etc. normally found in water. Boiling a container of water (in a pot, or coffee maker in this case), leaves small amounts or "deposits" of these minerals on and near the actual heat source. If not removed, they can slow brewing time and more importantly, adversely affect the taste of coffee.

Descaling should be done at regular intervals to prevent this from happening. Your machine lets you know when to perform the descaling task. There are a number of products sold in your supermarket that will do this for you - but one of the least expensive; and just as effective - is to use white vinegar. Here's how to do it:

1) Drain your Keurig coffee machine over a sink.
2) Fill the machine with undiluted white vinegar.
3) Run the brew process at least four times, pouring the cups of vinegar back into the coffee maker.
4) Optionally, let your Keurig coffee maker sit for a few hours, then run the brew cycles again. Pour the vinegar into the sink and drain any remaining vinegar.
5) Fill your coffee maker with fresh water. Run multiple brew cycles with fresh water each time to thoroughly rinse the machine before returning to normal use.

That's it!

I know this will help & good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks!

How do you de scale?


There are a couple of ways you can descale a coffee maker one of them is by using the Better Brew coffee maker descaler or you can use a home brew of 1/3 white vinegar and 2/3rd water.

What is de-scale?


Descaling removes the deposits left behind from hard water. These mineral deposits will slow heat transfer if not removed from the heating element. To descale the coffee maker, use 48 oz of undiluted vinegar (household strength) and have a large ceramic mug to hold the output. Empty any water in the reservoir. Pour vinegar into the Water Reservoir and fill to the top of edge of the clear viewing area. Place a mug in the drip tray and press the Large Cup Button. (Do not use a K-cup.) When the brew cycle finishes, pour the contents of the mug into the sink.

Repeat the brew cycle until the reservoir is empty. Open and close the lid between cycles. When the reservoir empty, fill with water and let the coffee maker stand for 4 hours with the unit ON. After four hours, rinse the coffee maker by doing several brewing cycles (again without a K-cup). Discard the liquid after each brew cycle and repeat until the reservoir is empty.

You may need to perform additional brew cycles if you notice a residual taste.

For more information, including a pdf with the directions for descaling of the coffee maker, see http://www.keurig.com/customer-service/brewer-registration-and-support/frequently-asked-questions .
I hope this helps.

How to clean the kitchenaid java express coffee maker


The Coffee Maker can be descaled using
a packaged descaling agent or vinegar.
Always mix the descaling solution using
cool water.
• When using a descaling agent, follow
the directions on the package for the
recommended amounts of descaling
agent and water to use.
• When using vinegar, fill the carafe with
a solution consisting of 1⁄2 vinegar and
1⁄2 water.
Descaling Steps:
1. Before descaling, always remove the
water filter (see “Installing the Ion-
Exchange Water Filter” on page 7) and
make sure the brew basket contains
no coffee or coffee filters.
2. Run the Coffee Maker through a
complete brewing cycle using a full
carafe of the descaling solution.
3. If the cleaning needed indicator lights
after the brewing cycle is complete,
repeat Step 2 using fresh descaling
solution. Keep repeating Step 2 until
the cleaning needed indicator no
longer lights after brewing.
4. Rinse the Coffee Maker by running
it through two brewing cycles using a
full carafe of fresh, cool water
each time.
5. Wash the brew basket in hot, soapy
water and rinse with hot water. This
part can also be washed in the upper
rack of the dishwasher.
6. Reinstall or replace the water filter.
Replace the filter every three months
under normal usage, or more often
with heavy use.
