Is your Keurig 2.0 telling you its needs a new part? Is it driving you crazy as you definitely don’t want to do without your morning coffee?
Just like all mechanical devices, your Keurig coffee machine demands periodic maintenance as a way to make certain it continues to work properly. So I’ve put together a list of the top 3 common Keurig 2.0 repair needs and fixes in the hope it’ll help you sort out whatever problems your coffee machine is having.
New Filter Needed?
Is your Keurig maker informing you it’s time to change the filter? Did you even know it had a filter? When this happened me I looked all over the machine and finally googled to see exactly what was going on and discovered the filter system was an optional feature! Optional!
So I bought the kit online and when it was delivered I prepped it and installed it in about 5 minutes. Then I tried my first cup of coffee using the filtered water. The coffee appeared smoother to me.
We have very mineral-heavy water here and I currently utilize filtered water, however, the use of another filter really makes a difference. If you have a Keurig and do not have a filter housing order one!
Economical, simple to install and it actually makes a difference, particularly for that first cup in the morning (well, it makes them all taste better!).
New Reservoir Needed?
If you drop your reservoir as I have done in the past then this one is an easy fix. you can get a water reservoir on Amazon and don’t need to buy a new machine. the one I bought fit fine, works great and looks fab.
It’s a little expensive but not as much as replacing the whole machine which I was happy about.
Replacement Drip Tray Needed?
If you’ve lost or broken the metal plate on the drip tray, but have no idea what model of coffee maker you have? This is what has happened to me in the past (I go through a lot of coffee machines! If you still have the black plastic part, take a close appearance at the shape. You can try and match it to the pictures of the coffee makers online.
Otherwise you can input the serial number (usually on the side of the machine when you eliminate the tank) on the Keurig website. Their customer support should be able to provide you a design number.
Replacement drip trays are available on amazon, a little overpriced again but needs must! Better than buying a new machine!
