Slow to brew and cup is not full.

My Keurig seems to be working fine without a K-Cup inserted. However with a K-Cup inserted, the coffee dribbles out very slowly and I only get 1/2 of a serving. I have to brew another smaller cup into the first one to fill my mug. I cannot find anything that is stopped up.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I just cleaned my Keurig with white vinegar and got the flow of water coming out really well now, but only when there is no K-Cup or if I use the cup that you fill with your own coffee. I checked the little thing that pierces the bottom of the cup and that tube is clear (I was able to blow water through it with no problem). I'm not sure what else to try so that they machine can use the K-Cups... I have tried different K-Cups too and it has the same issue with them all. The water coffee just dribbles out...

I have the same problem as Lyn F. Water flows fine until there is an actual K-Cup in the machine. I tried removing both the "washers" (rubber around the needles) and that didn't help...

Have you tried changing the filter in the reservoir?

Did all the things suggested at least three times no help! So I decided the pump was getting weak so I and bought a new keurig brewer....SAME PROBLEM!!

My wife suggested I buy brand X cups and I did...PROBLEM SOLVED...I think the grind is too fine in the Keurig cups and plugs the small outlet orifice!!

Phillip2, check this guide. Slightly different model, but should be pretty much the same idea on yours.

The bottom needle is easier to access if you pop off the bottom of the K-cup holder. Using a small screwdriver, gently lift one of the 2 legs while pulling the bottom off. Once it's off it is really easy to insert a paperclip into the needle. Turn the holder to that you can view the needle from the top and observe the paperclip poking through. You can blow through the needle from the bottom plastic stem too. That was how I found mine was full of grounds.

@wildfortune absolutely correct. Step 2 in the guide documents this as well.

I was only getting 2 ounces of coffee to come out. I did not have the keurig cleaner, which cleans the top pin. so i found a small oxy salad dressing container made out of silicon, filled it with water and closed the top part of the unit down on it a few times, creating a suction. then i took a very thin sewing needle and worked it into the pin hole, and re-did the suction routine. i noticed coffee grounds in the water. repeated several times and now my kuerig works good as new. i get 8 ounces of coffee in less than a minute.

What is an oxy salad dressing container?

Good instructional, fixed my unit in 10 minutes and the flow is better than ever.

This seemed to help a LITTLE but I noticed corrosion inside my machine (2 yrs old and I use it to make 2 to 4 cups a day). I just don't think these things are made to last. After all ....we live in a monetary system of cyclical consumption & planned obsolescence. Time to donate to the cause and get a new one, lol.

Agreed. Same problem here. Used it a few times a week, two years in, it starts doing this crap. If I have to disassemble the beast and clean it, they should sell the parts, tools and information to do that. Screw Keurig, I'm going back to a $20 Mr. Coffee.
