IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
When using electrical appliances, basic
safety precautions should be followed,
including the following:
1. Read all instructions before using.
2. Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles
and knobs when available.
3. This appliance must be properly installed
and located in accordance with these
instructions before it is used.
4. The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the appliance manufacturer
may result in fire, electrical shock or injury
to persons.
5. Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric
burner, or in a heated oven.
6. Do not use outdoors.
7. To protect against fire, electric shock and
injury do not immerse cords, plugs, or the
appliance in water or any other liquid.
8. Do not overfill the Water Reservoir
with water.
9. Use only water in this appliance! Do not put
any other liquids or foods in the Water Reservoir except as instructed in the Cleaning
Instructions in this guide.
10. Turn off and unplug the Brewer before
cleaning or maintenance. Allow to cool
Safe Operation & Use
before putting on or taking off parts
and before cleaning the appliance.
11. For best operation, plug the appliance
into its own electrical outlet on a dedicated
circuit to prevent flickering of lights, blowing
of fuses or tripping a circuit breaker.
12. Do not operate any appliance with a
damaged cord or plug or after the appliance
malfunctions or is damaged in any manner.
Contact Keurig Customer Service to
report any malfunction of or damage
to the Brewer.
13. Do not let the cord hang over the edge of
the table or counter, or touch hot surfaces.
14. To disconnect, press the Power Button on
the Brewer to ‘OFF’ status and then remove
the plug from the wall outlet.
15. Close supervision is necessary when any
appliance is used by or near children.
16. Do not lift the Handle to open the Lid of
the Brewer while brewing is in progress.
17. Always keep the Water Reservoir Lid
on the Water Reservoir unless you are
refilling it.
18. This appliance is equipped with a power
cord having a grounding wire with a
grounding plug. The appliance must be
grounded using a 3-hole properly grounded
outlet. In the event of an electrical short
2
circuit, grounding reduces the risk of
electrical shock.
19. If the outlet is a standard 2-prong wall
outlet, it is your personal responsibility
and obligation to have it replaced with a
properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet.
20. Do not, under any circumstances, cut or
remove the third (ground) prong from the
power cord or use an adapter.
21. Consult a qualified electrician if the
grounding instructions are not completely
understood, or if doubt exists as to whether
the appliance is properly grounded.
22. Do not use the appliance for other than
its intended use.
Save These
Instructions.

unless there is adult supervision. Brewer
dispenses very hot water.
2. SPECIAL NOTICE FOR HOT COCOA USERS:
IMMEDIATELY AFTER USING A HOT COCOA
K-CUP® PORTION PACK, RUN a Hot Water

Set-Up
Helpful Hints
1. Plug Brewer into its own grounded outlet.
If the electric circuit is overloaded with other
appliances, your Brewer may not function
properly. The Brewer should be operated on
its own circuit, separate from other appliances.
2. Keep your Brewer turned “ON”.
To brew a fresh cup of coffee, tea or hot cocoa
anytime you want, keep your Brewer turned
“ON” all the time. However, the Brewer is fully
programmable so you can set it to turn on and
off automatically to match your schedule.
Or, if you prefer, set the Brewer to automatically
turn off after a period of time. Follow the simple
instructions on pages 10–13 to find the settings
that are most convenient for you.
3. For the best tasting gourmet coffee, tea or
hot cocoa, Keurig recommends using bottled
or filtered water.
Water quality varies from place to place. If
you notice an undesirable taste in your cup
of coffee, such as chlorine or other mineral
tastes, we recommend you consider using
bottled water or water from a filtration system.
For best results, carefully follow manufacturer’s
instructions when using any water filtration
system.
4. Customize the size, flavor & brew that’s
perfect for you.
With the choice of over 200 varieties of K-Cup®
portion packs and 5 brew sizes (Extra-Small
Cup-3.25 oz., Small Cup-5.25 oz., Small
Mug-7.25 oz., Large Mug-9.25 oz., and Travel
Mug-11.25 oz.) your Keurig® Brewer gives you
endless options to customize the size, flavor and
brew that’s perfect for you. For a strong, intense
cup, select an Extra Bold K-Cup® (with up to 30%
more ground coffee than regular varieties) and
brew the size that’s right for you. The smaller the
brew size, the more intense flavor in your cup.
The larger the brew size, the less intense flavor
in your cup.
5. Remove K-Cup® portion pack after use.
Please see page 7 for brewing instructions.
6. Brewing into a travel mug.
To brew into a travel mug, simply remove the
Drip Tray Assembly and place the travel mug
on the Drip Tray Base.
7. De-scale Brewer regularly.
Please see pages 14 and 15 for instructions.

coffee grinds, it can be cleaned using a paper
clip or similar tool. Remove K-Cup® Holder
assembly and detach Funnel. Insert the paper
clip (as shown in fig. 19) into the Needle to
loosen the clog and push it out. The K-Cup®
Holder is dishwasher safe.
CAUTION: Please rinse the Water Reservoir thoroughly after cleaning to ensure
that no cleaners or cleaning solutions remain as they may contaminate the water
supply in the Brewer.
De-Scaling Your Brewer
Mineral content in water varies from place to place. Depending on the
mineral content of the water in your area, calcium deposits or scale may
build up in your Brewer. Scale is non-toxic, but left unattended, it can hinder
Brewer performance. De-scaling your Brewer
fig. 20
helps maintain the heating element and other
internal parts of the Brewer that come in contact
with water.
CAUTION: There are sharp needles that puncture
the K-Cup® above the K-Cup® Holder and in the bottom of the K-Cup® Holder.
To avoid risk of injury, do not put your fingers in the K-Cup® Assembly
Housing.
Cleaning the Water Reservoir & Water Reservoir Lid
The Brewer should be de-scaled every 3-6
months to ensure optimal performance. It is
possible for calcium deposits to build up faster,
making it necessary to de-scale more often.
The Water Reservoir Lid and Water Reservoir should be periodically
inspected and cleaned.
The Water Reservoir Lid or Water Reservoir should not be put into the
dishwasher. They should be cleaned with a damp, soapy, non-abrasive
cloth and rinsed thoroughly. Do not dry the inside of the Water Reservoir
with a cloth as lint may remain.
You should promptly de-scale if “DE-SCALE” is
displayed on the LCD Control Center (fig. 20).
However, even if “DE-SCALE” is not displayed,
you should continue to de-scale your brewer
every 3-6 months. Properly follow the de-scaling
procedure described on page 15.
To clean the filter screen at the base of your Water Reservoir, empty the
Water Reservoir and follow one or all of the following procedures.
NOTE: If you are using a water filter inside the Water Reservoir, remove it
before cleaning.

De-Scaling Instructions
Service
A. PREPARE
Step 1: To begin, you will need the following:
At least 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar
Access to an empty sink
A large ceramic mug (do not use a paper cup)
Beyond these recommended cleaning and maintenance procedures this
Brewer is not user serviceable. For service, please refer to the Warranty
section of this guide.
Storage
Step 2: Empty the water in the Water Reservoir.
Empty the Water Reservoir before storing, and take care to ensure that you
store your Brewer in a safe and frost free environment. Please be sure to
store your Brewer in its upright position to avoid water leakage from the
inner tank. If you store the Brewer in a cold environment, you run the risk of
water freezing inside the Brewer and causing damage. When you prepare to
use it after storage, we recommend rinsing the Water Reservoir with fresh
water and running three cleansing brews without a K-Cup®.
Step 3: Disable “Auto Off” features.
B. FILL AND CLEAN
Step 1: Pour approximately 48 ounces of the vinegar into the Water Reservoir.
Step 2: Place a large mug on the Drip Tray Plate and run a brew cycle.
DO NOT USE A K-CUP® PORTION PACK, just press the BREW Button.
Pour the contents of the large mug into the sink.
If you plan to move your Brewer to a different location, turn the Brewer
off, unplug it, and empty the Water Reservoir. If your Brewer has been in
an environment below freezing, please be sure to let it warm to room
temperature for at least 2 hours before using.
Step 3: Repeat the brew process without a K-Cup® until “ADD WATER”
is indicated.
Step 4: Now let the Brewer stand for at least 4 hours while still on.
Step 5: Discard any residual vinegar and rinse the Water Reservoir
thoroughly.
Transport Brewer in the upright position to ensure inner tank does not leak
through vent.
C. RINSE
Step 1: Ensure the Water Reservoir is filled with fresh water.
Step 2: Place a large mug on the Drip Tray Plate and run a water brew cycle.
Pour the contents of the large mug into the sink.
Step 3: Repeat brew process until “ADD WATER” is indicated.
Step 4: You may need to perform additional water brew cycles if you notice
any residual taste.
NOTE: If “DE-SCALE” is still displayed after completing the procedure,
repeat the de-scaling procedure above.
