Caring for your Brewer
Descaling your Brewer
Regular cleaning keeps your brewer running smoothly. Always be sure to turn off and unplug your brewer before cleaning.
You should descale your brewer every 3-6 months. Properly
follow the descaling procedure.
Brewer Exterior
Water Reservoir
BREW
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.
BREW
Drip Tray
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.
The drip tray can hold up to 10 ounces
of overflow and should be emptied
and cleaned occasionally. To remove,
slide it toward you, keeping it level to
avoid spilling. Rinse and clean with a
damp, soapy, lint-free, non-abrasive
cloth.
Depending on the mineral content of your water, calcium
deposits or scale 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.
STEP 1: 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.
STEP 2: Descaling Rinse & Repeat
Helpful Hints
Repeat step 1, when the BREW button turns solid red, press
the power button as the brewer starts to dispense.
Water quality varies greatly. If you notice an undesirable
taste in your beverage (such as chlorine or mineral tastes),
we recommend using bottled or filtered water. Do not use
distilled water.
Let brewer stand for at least 30 minutes.
Power on the brewer, lift and lower the handle, then press
the BREW button.
Discard the hot contents into sink.
STEP 3: Fresh Water Rinse
Repeat step 1 using 10oz. of fresh water only. Do not add
Keurig® Descaling Solution. Repeat this step two additional
times. You may need to perform additional fresh water rinse
cycles if you notice any residual taste.
NOTE: The cleaning action of Keurig® Descaling Solution may result in a “foam” dispensed from the brewer. This
is natural, as the solution is reacting with the scale inside. For a brewer that is heavily scaled, the brewer may not
fill properly after the descaler is added. If this occurs, you may see only a small or no output dispensed, followed
by the sound of air blowing out. If this occurs:
• Turn off and unplug the brewer.
• Plug the brewer back in, power on, and repeat the Step 3 Fresh Water Rinse cycle. The brewer should begin to
function normally as the solution is rinsed out and the scale is removed. If problem persists, allow brewer to sit
unplugged for at least 30 minutes before continuing with the rinse.
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 handle and press the BREW button.
Once solution is dispensed, discard hot contents into sink.

Storage
Empty the internal hot water tank and water reservoir
before storing or transporting. To empty the internal hot
water tank - the brewer must be powered off but plugged
in. Place a mug on the drip tray. Press and hold the BREW
button and continue to hold until all of the water is dispensed
into the mug. There will be a 3 to 5 second delay before the
water begins to dispense.
Store your brewer in a safe and frost free environment
in its upright position. If you store the brewer in a cold
environment, you run the risk of any residual condensation to
freeze inside the brewer, causing damage. When you prepare
to use it after storage, we recommend wiping the water
reservoir with a damp, non-abrasive, lint-free cloth and
running three rinsing brews without a K-Cup® pod. Let the
brewer rest at room temperature for at least 2 hours before
powering on.
