A New Beginning – August 2, 2014
Welcome to our site howtofixacoffemaker.com, where we hope you will find the information that will help you solve the problem you may be experiencing with your Keurig coffee brewer.
You may know us from our previous site keurigtroubleshooting.com, however due to Green Mountain Coffee not being happy, after two years mind you, with us trying to help their customers where they couldn’t, we were forced to take that site down. Despite providing what we feel is more helpful, practical and honest advice to what Keurig provides they were not interested in working together to keep a popular site open.
Despite this set back we feel we can still provide real help to Keurig coffee lovers and so have brought the content of our previous site across to this new one. We will continue to add content, answer your emails and help the best we can to get you back into coffee making action.
Now, as much as we enjoy the coffee from our Keurig B60, every so often it does cause a problem or two. Those little gremlins seem to pop their heads up just when you don’t need them; which can be a little frustrating to say the least.
Despite the design and quality of the coffee brewers from Keurig they do have their problems. What we have assembled under our Problems With Your Keurig Coffee Brewer section is some of the most common issues we have come across. If you have other Keurig issues you would like included on our site then certainly do get in touch and we would be happy to see what we can do. You can do this by clicking here or using the Contact Us option from the menu on the sidebar to the right.
In addition to covering the most common problems that can arise with your Keurig, we have also brought you more useful information that we hope will enable you to make the most of your Keurig brewer.
Update August 3, 2014 …
We have been working away on trying to improve the site for our readers, and this has included a new template and new and faster servers. We have also got back on track with answering email questions; with 20 to 30 emails a day it does take a little while to get back into the swing of them.
In addition we have been working on some Video Tutorials that go through how to repair certain components of your Keurig brewer. We hope this will help more people to attempt repairs where their machine is clearly out of warranty and the only other option is go out and buy another one. We are uploading the videos as we produce them and then get them edited, so more should be added on a regular basis. The most recent we have finished is how to safely remove the outer casing to your Keurig machine, one of the hardest steps in any Keurig repair. Although not a repair in itself, it is necessary in order to replace parts such as the power transformer or water pump.
In addition to continuing the video work we will be revamping the Troubleshooting Guide page. We will be setting more issues / faults, providing a simple solution section and then an advanced solution section (if the simple approach hasn’t worked). We will then link to the Keurig accessories or replacement parts you require for any repair and the appropriate Video Tutorial if you require any guidance. We hope this approach we make fault diagnose much easier for our readers and guide them on their way back to enjoying great Keurig coffee.
Problems With Your Keurig Brewer
This section brings you information about the most common problems we have come across in troubleshooting the Keurig machine
Video Tutorials | How to Repair Your Keurig
The latest section to our site provides you with a range of videos that provide guidance on how to carry out the most common repairs on Keurig brewers.
Keurig Replacement Parts
Sometimes the only option available to get your Keurig back to life is the replacement of one or more of its parts. We have put together a list, which we will add to over time, of the parts that will solve some of the most common issues facing our readers.
Keurig Manuals | Quick Start Guides
You may be like us when it comes to keeping track of all those manuals that come with home appliances. It always seems to be the one you really need at the time is the very one that wasn’t put back last time it was used. So we have put together a small section called the Keurig Manual that covers the most popular Keurig models with their Quick Start guides.
Keurig User Manuals | Care and Use
A number of our readers have been in touch regarding the more detailed owners manual for their Keurig. So we have put together this section for the more popular Keurig brewers and so we hope they will be of help. You can access the manuals here or from the menu on the right hand side menu.
How to Clean a Keurig
Descaling your Keurig is an important step in keeping it clean and in good working order and is a specific task for the brewer’s cleaning process. Again we have collated material, click here, directly from Keurig themselves for each of their popular models in how to descale a Keurig brewer.
Keurig Exit Needle Cleaning
We have recently had a few questions about how to clean the exit and entry needles on a Keurig. So to help our readers with this, our latest article goes through a simple 8 step process that takes around 10 minutes to complete.
If this is something you think your Keurig might need, in particular if it is suffering from say partial brew cycles or you are finding coffee grounds in your cup, this might be just what your brewer needs.
We include this section in our site as it’s a step we always recommend to our readers. It was something we didn’t do initially when we purchased our first Keurig, but we wish we had. So we wanted to encourage our readers to do this easy step, if they haven’t done so already. There are now some nice little benefits to registration from Keurig and this section, by clicking here, will take you through each of them.
The Workings of a K Cup
Although you don’t need to know how a K cup is put together, it’s still an amazing design and one we all pretty much take for granted. So we put together a short article explaining how these great little pods work and integrate into the brewing system.
