BREW 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.
