k-cup rim opens up during brewing
I have trouble with my k-cup spitting grounds inside the machine where the k-cup sits during brewing.
I don't believe the problem is the puncture needles or the top gasket. I have cleaned and checked both of these, many times, and the needles seems to be puncturing normally. I think the problem is the k-cup ITSELF.
I have observed that, in about 2-3 out of every 5 cups, the top rim of the k-cup actually separates... so, the leakage is not coming from the needle hole area. The leakage is coming from the edge of the k-cup. It is as if there is too much pressure INSIDE the k-cup during brewing, which forces the top covering of the k-cup, causing it to separate from the plastic cup.

Who's K-Cups are you using?
I would recommend you speak with Keurig to let them know and to see if they have a fix.
I did, multiple times. They have no solution. I got rid of my THIRD Keurig with the same problem and will never buy another.
I was having the same frustrating problem and I believe I have found a solution. My machine was not clamping down on the kcup lid with enough force to maintain a good seal, probably a result of heat over time used. I simply put a thin rubber band under the edge of the lid of the kcup which increased sealing pressure on both the cup rim and the piercing needle seal. My machine works like new again and brews a great cup of coffee without the grounds in the cup or bursting out all over the counter. A thin o-ring that will fit snugly under the kcup lid might be a better choice, and you must remember to remove it before throwing the kcup into the trash.

It seems to me the water pumped into the k-cup has no place to go. My first thought is to look at the spike in your brewer at the bottom of the k-cup cradle and make sure it is straight, sharp and clear. Run a paper clip through it to be sure. That's the route for the brewed coffee travels to leave the k-cup and drain down into your mug.

Only happens with Dunkin k-cups for many users. Same issues discussed on Amazon. Dunkin decaf is the only one of 5 brands that it happens with me.
