How to Program my Keurig Coffee Maker?
Before using your Keurig for the first time, you need to set it up and refine it with its internal components.
Unbox your Brewer and Plug it in:
Hold the box, remove the Keurig brewer from the specified box, remove the tape that holds some of the items together and attach it.
Make sure you save the user manual. There is a lot of good information about how to use Keurig brewer and how to maintain your specific model.
Lift the Handle and Discard the Sending Disk when Inserted:
This step does not work for machines that do not come with a shipping disk.
Some coffee makers come with a temporary disc for pod attachment. If yours is one of these types, lift the handle and remove it.
Don’t just throw away the disk, either! Maybe I’m a packrat, but I suggest keeping the disc with the original box and user manual. You never know when you might need to keep the brewer away, whether to move, offer/sell someone else, or return to the manufacturer.
Remove the Pool of Water and Rinse it with Soap and Warm Water:
This step does not apply to manufacturers of non-removable liquids, such as the K10, K15, and B31 Mini-series brewer. All we are looking to do is wash the pool water on the floor before its first use. Remove the pool and wash it with a soft cloth or sponge, soap, and warm/hot water. Make sure you do not use the expanded Brill-o pad! Don’t forget to clear the water intake point under the water storage platform, ensuring there is nothing when you don’t want it in your coffee.
Filter the Coal Water Filter:
This step does not apply to machines that do not come with a coal-water filter. Coal water filters are not intended to be opened and are immediately placed in a water filter. Instead, take these simple steps:
- Rinse it under cold running water for a minute, making sure it moistens all the water you are about to take
- Immerse in a bowl of water for 5 minutes
- Massage the water filter so that any loose coal particles fall into the water container and not to your coffee
- Apply a water-cooled filter to the water filter handle and enter the pool
- This step does not apply to cooks who do not come with a coal-water filter.
- The coal water filter has two components, as shown above:
- Lower pod handle
- High-gravity handle
Place a charcoal water filter on the bottom, place a handle, and set the attached water filter on the pool. Everything will come together soon.
Fill in the Water Reservoir in the Max Fill line:
If you have a coal-fired filter, you can fill it with your tap water. If you do not have a filter, be sure to fill the water reservoir in the spring or with filtered water. Then, press the power button and wait for the heat to finish. Depending on your model, this can take anywhere from 20 seconds to 3 minutes.
Hold the Mug and Place it on the Drill Tray:
Some models have a sensor that will not slow down unless there is a mug in the drip tray. Or maybe not to make a fuss!
Lift and Lower the Handle without Inserting the Keurig Coffee Pod:
I mean, you can use a coffee pod, but this is our cleansing drink, so it makes no sense to waste coffee.
Select the Maximum Size Setting and Press Brew:
Note: Do not select a larger size than the mug you are using!
Your non-alcoholic coffee will complete the process in 30 seconds to 3 minutes, depending on your model. When you are done, think of a well-washed interior, and you are ready to start using your Keurig brewer every day.
There are hundreds, maybe thousands, of different K-Cups you can use, but some may not fit your Keurig model.
Keurig has two different cooking programs: Keurig 1.0 and Keurig 2.0.
- Keurig 1.0: Brews K-Cup pods only; compatible with all available K-Cup pods
- Keurig 2.0: Brews K-Cup, K-Mug, K-Vue, and K-Carafe pods; compatible with Keurig-licensed pods only (with “Keurig Brewed” on the lid
You can read our Complete Keurig Coffee Manufacturer’s Guide to see which brewing system every Keurig brand uses.
Lift the handle, insert the pod and lower the handle
Once the pod is installed, and the handle is lowered, Keurig’s device slams up and down – this is the secret of Keurig’s cooking program.
Instead of using the Keurig coffee pod, you can choose to use the Keurig My K-Cup pod renewable, which allows you to drink one serving of your coffee grounds – no need for a K-Cup.
To use the My K-Cup pod, you will need to delete the ordinary pod assembly (something you put in your regular K-Cup pod). After that, it goes in and out quickly.
Auto-On & Auto-Brew Modes:
I wanted to choose Keurig’s Auto-On and Auto-Brew methods, as they are slightly different from the desired making process described above.
Auto-On is a common feature in many Keurig models that allows you to set a beer to turn on automatically. However, it will not automatically make itself a cup of coffee. Instead, all you have to do is first heat to get up, go, get out of the pod, and brew right away.
Auto-Brew comes in many Keurig carafe models, such as the K200 and up. This mode allows you to prepare a water maker with water and a coffee pod for cooking later. Unlike Auto-On, a brewer will brew a coffee cafe at a set time.
Keurig’s coffee makers are inexpensive machines. Unfortunately, many users complain that their brewer has failed to stay afloat for more than a year or two, but this is usually due to poor maintenance – you have to clean these things up, folks! To keep your brewer crying for years, make sure you do the following maintenance procedure.
