It's the day before your holiday party. The house is clean and you want to make a quick cup of coffee before you begin your holiday baking. But there's a problem with your Keurig brewer. Troubleshooting tip No. 1: Retrace your steps. Is there water in the reservoir? Is your cup in place? Is there a K-CUP tucked in? Is the machine plugged in? These may seem like obvious questions, but sometimes it's so easy to get in the habit of doing something that you can accidentally skip a step and not realize it.
Once you've double-checked everything you have to do for the brewing process, are you still having problems with your Keurig coffee maker? Troubleshooting tip No. 2: Don't panic. Keurigs are well made and designed to be user-friendly, so finding an easy solution won't be a problem. Make your first stop at the company's website. Have your manual handy so you know the model number and other details. For example, do you have the Keurig platinum? Troubleshooting for that will be different from a Mini. Sometimes identifying an issue is easy when it comes to Keurig troubleshooting. Leaking is a good example. You can easily tell if you have an issue by the puddles around the brewing system. Other issues are not as easily identified.
