The water coffee just dribbles out

I cleaned my brewer with white vinegar and used the paperclip trick. The water comes out nicely when there is no K-Cup or if I use the cup that you put your own coffee in. When I use a K-Cup, the water coffee just dribbles out. It's got to be related to that tube and how the coffee exits the basket when the K-Cup is in there, but I just can't figure out what the problem is...

Great instruction. I had previous relative success in clearing our K40 with OEM descaling steps plus blowing out the needles with a handheld air canister. When it now developed seemingly incurable enlarged prostrate dribbles, your solution worked like a charm!

Now if I could just do this with my prostate all would be happy ;-)

After conducting all recommended cleaning procedures i still had a very slow drip rate, I found a small piece of plastic in the bottom K-Cup needle punch shaft, ( it was plasic from a K-Cup). It was very difficult to see, I had to remove the K- Cup holder and using a flash light to enhance visability of the punch shaft hole and needle area. I seen a small white piece of plastic in the shaft. I took a sewing needle and carfully removed the piece of plastic K-Cup from the punch shaft. I have had coffee grounds in the upper punch shaft that interfered with proper flow. This was the first time the bottom punch was the guilty party. After removing the debris from the shaft, my 3 year old Keurig 2.0 ran like i just pulled it out of the box. Reading Keurig issues on this site has helped me resolve my problem. I wanted to pass this experience on, in the event it may help others. Coffee grounds and calcium build up are not the only flow obstructions you may come across.

I had the same problem... Still didn’t work...

So I tried the unplug, hold in the power button until it clicks then repeat 2 more times. Then lift the handle, put it down and attempt a brew.

This caused a little water to come out.

I repeated this several times until all of a sudden it just let go and drained all the water that is stored inside the machine.

Then it behaved just like when you plug in a new machine. It had to “re-prime” the pump.

Now my descale is running through. Although I don’t think scale buildup caused the problem, I had tried it. But if water isn’t moving, how can the cleaner get in?

So now I just need to rinse and repeat then finally make a cup of coffee!

Spoke too soon! After about 10 runs, it quit again...

Our three year old Keurig suddenly started to run very slowly and produce only a partial cup of coffee. I tried all of the recommended fixes, even taking the upper check valve out and soaking it in vinegar. Cleaned all the needles and outlets with no success. We bit the bullet and bought a new Keurig and… it ran exactly the same way. I then remembered one person commenting online that there was a problem with her K-cup. I purchased a 12 pack of Green Mountain K-cups, reasoning that since Green Mountain is the parent of Keurig they should know how to make good K-cups. It worked!!! Flow was fast and the quantity of coffee was as expected.

The problem started at the same time we purchased an order of Donut House K-cups online. Same brand that we have used for a couple of years. I believe the paper filter in their K-cups is now more restrictive as there is a large amount of liquid left in the used K-cup. So now we use the same K-cup for two passes on the Keurig. Usually two identical medium size settings work best. Still have to use up over 200 of the faulty Donut House K-cups and when gone no more.

== Problem may be with the K-cup''
