How can I descale my Keurig K-Cup brewer?
Spanking my Keurig Brewer
I have a Keurig B60 coffee maker and the display is telling me to descale the brewer. But it doesn't tell me how! What do I do?ANSWER:
We have a Keurig B60 ourselves and were stumped when we first saw that message on the brewer.
There are a number of ways to descale a brewer, the least expensive being to run some vinegar through the machine a couple of times, and then run cold water through a few more times to rinse it.
However, simply trying to clear the lines often doesn't work. And as you will see from the many comments below, by far the most reliable way to get your Keurig brewer working again is the "Slap and Burp" method.
Here is how you do it.
First, unplug the brewer and remove both the water reservoir and drip tray.
Next, hold the brewer upside down over the sink and slap the base a few times. And I mean really slap it.
Now put everything back together and try brewing again. Most of the time this works with a couple of good slaps. If not, try it again.
And don't worry, there are no laws against giving your Keurig a good slapping!
