What to Do If Your Keurig Won’t Brew – K-Cup Barista

The drawback to this wonderful piece of machinery is that it is made of complicated and sensitive parts. I’ve heard story after story of Keurig woes, and I’ve had a few of my own. So what do you do if your Keurig won’t brew? Here are some troubleshooting tips if your Keurig gets temperamental. Step 2: Lift up the water reservoir and drop it back into place. There is a magnet that has to be in the right position and putting the reservoir back into place causes it to go back where it should be. This method has worked for me.

Chock Full O Nuts K-Cups

Chock Full Of Nuts K Cup

Just came back from the store with a new K Cup and Brand. I picked up Chock Full O’ Nuts Midtown Manhattan blend. These K Cups are different from any I have seen before. Gone is the plastic cone on the bottom like most K Cups. Instead it is a little screen that saves tons of plastic. There is just a little plastic ring around the top and thats it.

At first I was skeptical if this would work as they are much shorter than regular k cups. Using these cups eliminates the use of the bottom needle to puncture the bottom of the K Cup. The water just pours naturally through the screen and it works just fine. I don’t know how long these have been out there but it was the first time I have seen them. The coffee is really good also. We just bought a new K Cup brewer that makes larger cups and my Green Mountain Breakfast Blend has become a little too weak for me. I am looking for a replacement and this medium roast blend may be just what I am looking for.

New Way to Break A Keurig Brewer

Keurig B40A few years ago before I knew how to clean a needle in the Keurig B40 that we owned it started acting up and only brewed a half of cup of coffee if we were lucky. I went out and bought a new brewer and when I mentioned to my handy neighbor that we were throwing away the old B40 he asked if he could have it.

We gave it to him and he never had a problem with it. I am guessing that as he cleaned it and transported it the problem fixed itself.

Fast forward at least two years, I get a phone call from him yesterday telling me the brewer stopped working.  He took the brewer from his house in NYC and brought it to his sisters in upstate New York since he was going there for a week.

The night before he was to come home he cleaned out the brewer and put it in the car. The temperature went down to 7 degrees overnight and the line inside the brewer froze and broke. Even though he cleaned out he machine there was still some water inside the machine.

He is in the process now to find out exactly if it is a metal line or just a plastic tube that can be replaced. Either way it is a weird way to break a Keurig brewer.
