To clear the hose I needn't have gone beyond step 9. Once the hose is detached one can run a pipe cleaner down it. I was amazed how many coffee grounds were stuck way up there where there shouldn't be any!

A tip would be to use a magnetized screwdriver: I was worried that the screws would fall into the workings of the machine.

For the final step of reattaching the lid, having a second person would help or perhaps holding it between your knees might help - trying to apply pressure to the screws also made the arms/compartment want to collapse/ close so that was a bit of a challenge.

Very informative instructions and I now have a Keurig that works again!! :)

Thumbs up on the magnetized screwdriver tip

M A -

The screws are stainless steel and are thus not magnetic.

The screws were magnetic for me.. they are probably a carbon steel Or galvanized. They aren’t stainless.

While you have your brewer this far apart it would be wise to take a small wire or even a sewing needle and run it down the slightly squared, open side of both of the Keurig needles. You'll be surprised at how grounds have gotten in there and slowed the flow of output liquid, mine flows like a new one again.
