Did I Break The Keurig?

It warned me the other day that something needed to be cleaned on it.
Can't remember what it was.Maybe my memory would be better right now if I had a cup of coffee to wake me up!

Just waited 10 minutes for a cup.It just dripped out gurgled and grumbled about something.It's not a happy coffee maker.

What happened here?

Needs more water? Mine blinks incessantly if it's low on water. I've never had a "clean something" warning.

Not the water.We fill it daily with distilled.It's always being used.

It's strange, when it did finally give me a cup of luke warm breakfast
blend,the setting went back to normal.Waiting for the next person.

It sounded like a stik shift. When you (I conveniently forgot) 1st,2nd, and just get to 3rd gear right now. Such wasted gears. No wonder we had the clutch replaced twice.

Need an Aliby.One that's easily expendable.

I didn't do it!

Hmm. Maybe turn the reset button in the back on and off. See if that helps.

Not sure which model you have, but they all need to be "descaled" and the machine will prompt you to do this:

Also, I found that from time to time I need to do this if the machine is "gurgling" and basically taking forever to brew a cup:

If you're always using distilled water, it shouldn't need to be descaled.
I'd call and ask them what's the deal.

It was clogged and couldn't pump the water

Hubby took it apart and did this. Works great now.
Keep a paper clip handy.

Ahhhh Haaaa, now I remember PF's hint on the paper clip fix from a very long time ago. Glad it's fixed now Munky!

One time Munky my faucet refused to allow any water to come through. Not even a dribble. It took a while, but I realized the screen may be clogged. So I removed it and sure enough, teeny, tiny little pebbles had filled up the screen. Who knew that our city was sending us rocks along with our water.

It's useless here to have screens on our faucets, they'd be filled up in a day. We call it "chunky water" and I won't drink it or cook with it.
