简介

The hollow needle that pierces the top of the K-Cup can get clogged by coffee particles. If you try to flush it by forcing tools or fluid into the needle's exit, you risk damaging the back-flow preventing check valve. This guide shows how to disassemble just enough of the head assembly to clean the top needle from its inlet side.

  1. Identifying the parts: 1.A is the water reservoir cover. 1.B is the "Head". The needle that punctures the K-Cup is in here.

    • When the top needle is clogged, running the Keurig will make most of the hot water come out the overflow spout, back into the water reservoir, instead of through your coffee. That symptom lets you know you might benefit from following this procedure.

    • Point the tip of your Philips-head screw driver up and remove the two screws on the underside of the head. (circled). Be careful you don't drop and lose them!

    • Snip the zip-tie, being careful not to cut into the plastic hose.

    • Detach the plastic hose.

    • Remove the two circled screws.

    • Now, you can remove the top needle assembly by lowering it, done through the bottom of the head assembly.

    • Blow Out the Top Needle Assembly: Just put your lips on the top plastic, and blow.

    • Blowing on the assembly may not work for some, so push on the back of the valve to break it loose.

    • Reassembly: perform the dis-assembly steps in reverse order. Watch it, though: the rear of the head cover can go on two ways. Tuck it close to the body of the head, or you won't be able to close the Keurig. Guess how I found **that** out.

I discovered that if you pinprick the lid in the center, where the needle goes, just before placing the cup in the machine, the frequency and severity of plugging is reduced by a factor of 10. Try it and comment back. (Helps to also close the top slowly).

I called Keurig about the clogging problem, and they claimed that manually forcing the cup to be pierced by the bottom needle when placing the cup in the holder will help to reduce clogs, but I am not sure why this is any better than using the handle. I still have problems with clogging, and I have had to use the included Keurig 2.0 Brewer Top Needle Cleaning Maintenance Accessory, but that is only a temporary fix.

There were a couple of items omitted from this post. 1. When you remove the first two screws, the cover is still connected to the lower assembly by two posts that are pressed into the lower part. Holding the cover near the back and wiggling the sides up and down will pull the posts out so you can move it. 2. On my version of the keurig, there is an assembly that holds a one way valve. That was the problem with mine. I removed the assembly, tried to blow through it and couldn't. I pushed on the back of the valve and it came loose. Problem solved. I took a picture of the valve assembly but couldn't figure out how to attach it here. I'll add it elsewhere if I can figure it out.

Hate my Keurig. It's four months old and I've had to use the maintenance cleaning kit so often I've lost count. And it never cleans the coffee out of the needle with 5 up and downs as it states it should. It sually takes me up to 5 attempts which can take a lot of time in the mornings when all you want is a coffee so you can get to work.

I get a message on the panel screen, that the Keurig refillable cup that was purchased with the coffee maker, was not made for this machine? I wiggle all the parts throw out my original coffee and restart the process again This usually works. The needle maintenance procedure, Will have to be tried as this morning was pretty frustrating. It is annoying to have the refillable cup called a phoney cup when it was made by Keurig.

I found that shoving a toothpick in the upper needle from the bottom worked for me - just try not to break off the toothpick inside the needle.
