Caring for your Coffee Maker
Regular cleaning keeps your coffee maker running smoothly. Always be sure to turn off and unplug your coffee maker before cleaning.
Coffee Maker Exterior
Keep your Keurig® coffee maker looking
its best by cleaning the exterior from
time to time. Just clean with a damp,
soapy, lint-free, non-abrasive cloth.
Never immerse the coffee maker in
water or other liquids.
Drip Tray
The drip tray can hold up to 237 ml/8 oz
of overflow and should be emptied and
cleaned occasionally. To remove, slide
it toward you, keeping it level to avoid
spilling. Rinse and clean with a damp,
soapy, lint-free, non-abrasive cloth.
K-Cup® Pod Holder
To remove the K-Cup® pod holder from
the coffee maker, lift the handle and
STRONG
grasp the top of the K-Cup® pod holder
with one hand while pushing up on
the bottom of the K-Cup® pod holder
from underneath with the other until
it releases. After cleaning, align the
K-Cup® pod holder with the opening
using the two front ribs as a guide
and snap into place from the top.
CAUTION: There are sharp needles that puncture the K-Cup® pod above the K-Cup® pod holder and in the
bottom of the K-Cup® pod holder. To avoid risk of injury, do not put your fingers in the K-Cup® pod holder.
NOTE: Always remove and recycle the used K-Cup® pod after brewing.
Funnel 
Washing the funnel ensures a fresh
beverage experience. The funnel
should be washed regularly and can
be removed from the K-Cup® pod
holder by pulling on it until it pops off.
To replace it, orient the snaps to the
indent and just snap it back onto the
K-Cup® pod holder.
Water Reservoir
The removable water reservoir should
be cleaned periodically with a damp,
soapy, non-abrasive cloth. Rinse the
reservoir thoroughly after cleaning.
This will ensure that no cleaning
solutions remain in the area as they
may contaminate the water supply.
Do not dry the inside of the water
reservoir with a cloth as lint may
remain. Allow the reservoir to dry
completely.
Exit Needle
Remove the pod holder assembly
and detach the funnel. Locate the
exit needle on the inside bottom
of the K-Cup® pod holder. Insert a
straightened paper clip into the exit
needle to loosen any coffee grounds.
Entrance Needle
Lift the coffee maker handle and locate the entrance needle
on the underside of the lid. To clean both holes in the needle,
hold the coffee maker handle in the upward position and
with your other hand, carefully insert a straightened paper
clip into both holes. Gently move it around to loosen any
coffee grounds. Lower the handle completely and run two
water-only brew cycles. Do not insert a K-Cup® pod.
TIP: Refer to keurig.ca for video instructions on cleaning the entrance/exit needles.
