    You should write "They" between "inside the K-cup because" and "may puncture your hand"

    There are two plastic latching tabs that hold down the back of this cover, about 5/8 inch in from either side. It should be possible to locate them by probing along the back parting line with a thin-blade screwdriver and release them by pressing forward. Or apply excessive force like I did and break them off.

    Thx for warning, Lytle!

    I have been pushing and pulling on that back side - Canby release those tabs. Anyone have a little more advice? Using a small thin blade knife…

  9. Firmly grasp the hose and pull it off of the plastic nozzle.
    • Firmly grasp the hose and pull it off of the plastic nozzle.

    Before pulling, you can see if this portion of the tube is clogged. If clogged at the other end, you may be wasting time going further. See comments at the last step.

    Henry Huang - 답글

    Maybe, but it’s unlikely to be the case. The transition from roomy hose to cramped needle outlets is where syphoned up coffee grounds get caked up. And you might not see it. I squeezed the hose at the union a few times and that made black crud come loose. A visual inspection only would not have shown that.

    Senior Senior, Jr. -

    Our unit's hose end was secured with a plastic zip tie that had to be cut off. When replacing the hose, a new zip tie was required.

    M A - 답글

    DO NOT cut it. Just slide the zip tie with your fingers. Then when reattaching the hose, put on hose first then shimmy zip tie back over union.

    Thanks so much Sr Sr Jr for both comments here!

    Make sure to clean out the needle carefully at this point, paper clip is good from the hose attachment nub rather challenging the sharp nèdle end

    Handle needs to be in upright position, then it pops out without force.

    Christina Slack - 답글

    The screws for the top cover are hard to get back in because they are not attracted to magnets. But they are honestly unnecessary to put back, and most likely there to keep the cover in place during assembly and transport. It clips in nicely on its own and won’t come off during normal use.

  12. With the needle removed, open the device by pulling up on the handle.
    • With the needle removed, open the device by pulling up on the handle.

  13. Push in on one of the arms attached to the K-cup holder plastic housing to remove it from its rails.  The arms are identical for both sides so once one side is free repeat the process for the second side. The plastic is flexible and will not snap with the force applied. Once the arms are removed, the configuration should look like the picture. The K-cup holder housing should be separated from the arms.

    My Keurig has white, nylon half-grommets to reduce wear, where the post of each arm slides in its slot. Take care that they do not fall down into the machine and that you do not lose them.

    wheelersthree - 답글

    That just happened,( lost the grommet), I can hear it but can't get it out from inside the machine. I put everything back together and it is working. One note: may I suggest removing just the k-cup holder then removing the two screws for the top. you can then access the upper part of the hose. after that I used a long tie wrap (pipe cleaner would have been better, (I had given my tobacco pipes and cleaning equipment away last week.) Also I ran a bread tie down the top connection for the hose and into the needle. That is where I found the last of my clog. So now all I need is to find that little plastic piece and it will be perfect but it is working without it

    Getting this part put back together is near impossible. White pieces keep falling off & don't seem to line up correctly with plastic arms. Over 1 hour to get to this point. Frustrating.

    Christina Lemmey - 답글

    Don't take it apart at this point! Move on to the next step, then it is super easy to remove this front part in the same way but from the bottom pegs, if you want to clean all the small spaces covered in coffee dust and

    Christina Slack - 답글

    Yes, the arm will break. Apparently after struggling with it for about an hour, it weakened the plastic enough to snap off the left arm of the cup holder. The machine now works, though! I’ll just have to be mindful when I use it. Looking back, I wish I had tried just cleaning out the needle first. Might have saved me significant frustration with the reassembly of this step.

    Kimberly Meyer - 답글

    I think you need to tell people that the arms with the white roller will break off after all the struggling the left side broke off Thank for the worthless info. Ron Nelson

    At this point, I skipped remaining steps 13-16, mainly because I felt those steps are too much work to end up trying to “push out” grounds with my fingers (as described in step 16). Instead, I ran water through the mini-K as if I were making coffee—to remove all the grounds that I saw gunked up in the hose. I aimed the hose into a large bowl.

    I ran water through as many times as needed to get water that was completely clear of any grinds—which took about six 8-ounce cups.

    Thanks to others, whose comments helped me as I was going through the previous steps. :D

    The first picture is a little on the dark side, but I could still tell what you're trying to say in the picture. Maybe make it a little brighter?

    The second picture in this step shows the white plastic 'slide guide thinger', it is however upside down. During reassembly make sure to have it the other way so that the handle assembly will stay up when installing a k cup. If not the handle will fall everytime you let it go making for a frustrating coffee going experience especially if your not a morning person. :)

    foxyauto - 답글

    If your clog is in the other end of the hose, you are out of luck. I had only used my machine about 6 times before it wouldn't dispense. I disassembled the contraption, and stuck a pipe cleaner down the hose. There is no clog. Keurig is sending me a $50 coupon to apply toward a new machine.

  16. Lift up the top arm assembly to get it out of the way. Once it is out of the way, clear out any obstructions in the drain.
    • Lift up the top arm assembly to get it out of the way. Once it is out of the way, clear out any obstructions in the drain.

    • Use your finger or a slender object to clean the drain. Avoid pushing material further down the drain as that may cause obstructions deeper in the system.

    This tutorial was wonderful. However, it did not address what turned out to be my problem. After ascertaining that there was no obstruction in the drain, decided to suck and blow on the tube. Voila! There was some kind of obstruction there. After putting it back together, it works like a charm.

I wish i would have checked the needle first because that is where mine was clogged...then i wouldn't have had to do all those steps...but the instructions here were very good..thank you...

sue allen - 답글

For me too the problem was that the needle that punctures the pod was clogged. Maybe add to check that first and avoid taking everything apart. Great instructions though.

janpini - 답글

This helped a lot. I used a large syringe. We used to raise birds & had a variety of sizes. Put the syringe on the tube & pulled several times.Seemed to free any clog at the very bottom. Put back together & it's working now.but I notice sprinkles of water as is heats up now. Just need to figure what could be causing this.

So my keurig was not clogged. BUT. After taking it apart and putting it back together, it works now! #sweetcaffeinatedvictory

How do I get to the bottom of the reservoir. I think something is in there at the bottom blocking the tube.

I followed all the instructions and realized it was my needle that was clogged. Thank you! You saved me…had gotten it as a gift and didnt want to tell I had “broken" it. Again THANK YOU!

I want to know what that rubber circular thing under the top arm assembly and where you would get another one. Mine stopped pumping water through and after taking it apart, I realized that it was because that part wasn’t creating a good enough seal to make it able to form a vacuum. I wiped at it with my finger on both the main hole and the rubbery part and it works again. But who knows for how long. I tried asking Keurig about it and they just want to keep giving me the run around. First they said there were no user serviceable parts. Challenge accepted. Now they won’t give me a straight answer about how to replace this one simple part. They want to talk to me on the phone about it. I don’t get why it is so hard!!!

Steven Kendel - 답글

I was able to open everything and put back in place. Not sure what was clogged, I know I cleaned many things and now it’s working and saved a few $ :) Thanks.
