How to Clean a Keurig Coffee Maker [Video]

How to Clean a KeurigDid you have any problems with your Keurig lately?! Maybe your Keurig maker won’t brew a full cup of coffee or won’t brew at all?! In order to solve these problems, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to try cleaning your coffee maker.

Cleaning can’t guarantee a success, but in most cases, it will solve the most common problems with Keurig brewers.

I have Keurig for about three years now, and I have never had any problems with it, probably because I’m taking a really good care of it (cleaning included ).

You can do the same. Your coffee maker will work like a clock and your coffee will taste better. :)

Even if you have a brand new coffee maker, it is important to clean it regularly. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you need to clean it on daily basis. Clean your Keurig brewer once in two or three months, and it will serve you perfectly.

How to clean a Keurig

My initial idea about this post was to make a video showing how to clean a Keurig. But, then I saw a really good video made by Melissa from CleanMySpace .com  and I decided to share this one instead.

This is how you should clean your Keurig coffee maker:

In this video Melissa shows how to clean Keurig Special Edition Coffee Maker , but you can clean all other Keurig models the exact same way.

She explained everything so well, so I am sure you will have no problems with this one. And hgthgreally simple. So, get ready… to brew a good cup of coffee again. 😉

      Hi Deb, unfortunately, the only way to drain out the inner reservoir completely and clean it out for shipping/or to store it is to disassemble the unit!
      You need to open the machine, disconnect hose and inner reservoir and try to get the water out. If it’s not a must, I wouldn’t recommend this because it’s not a simple thing to do and it can sometimes damage the unit.
      Of course, Keurig doesn’t recommend it neither.
      I would just turn the brewer off, unplug it, empty out the removable water reservoir and make sure it stays in an upright position to avoid water leakage while moving. I hope this helps and let me know if you need anything else.

      Happy New Year!
