How do I descale my Keurig K-Select coffee maker?
It’s easy to descale your Keurig K-Select, and it is essential to do this at least every three months to every six months to ensure that your coffee machine is at the prime it should be.
First, make sure that there is no pod in the holder and turn your brewer off.
Empty an entire bottle of Descaling solution in your empty water reservoir, fill the same amount of water into your water tank, and turn the coffee maker on.
Run a water-only brew, selecting the largest cup size as you wait for it to brew; make sure that there is a large mug on the drip tray.
Repeat the brewing process until the “add water” light is illuminated and let it stand for thirty minutes.
When thirty minutes have passed, rinse the water reservoir thoroughly and ensure no descaling solutions are left.
After that, you do a fresh water rinse by filling the water tank with water, not beyond the MAX line and doing a water-only brew with the largest mug size.
Repeat for at least 12 rinsing brews.
What is the difference between a Keurig K-Select and a Keurig K55 or the K-Classic?
