Why is my Keurig Classic constantly turning off while brewing?
I put the Keurig brand K cup in, pull down the top, and press the brew button. It works for a split second then the machine turns off and I waste a K Cup. The K Cup just leaks into my cup and I have to remove it and try again because if I try and use the same K Cup it doesn’t taste right! It happens with numerous Keurig branded K Cups including Hot Chocolate, Cafe Caramel, and Cafe Vanilla. It’s been happening at least 3-4 times a week.
This is my third machine I’ve received from Keurig support and it’s still happening. I’ve done all the needle cleaning, reseting, descaling, and many other fixes. The unit is not even 3 months old.
I’m just at a loss of what to do because I don’t see many people having the same problem. I’m also sick and tired of wasting perfectly good K Cups! Anybody have ideas how to permanently fix this?
EDIT & SOLUTION: I've been able to resolve the issue using a work around. This is not a fix and I don't know why Keurig hasn't fixed it after years of this happening.
When using a milk based K Cup, press it into the bottom by hand so the K Cup is punctured. Pull it up and rotate 90º and close the lid. This gives the K Cup two holes and much less pressure. It has worked perfectly since I've been doing this.
