  1. problem with my keurig coffee maker?
    my mini plus keurig leaks water when its getting ready to brew. this happens no matter how much water i put in. when the water heats up this water leaks out in to my cup and it is not mixed with coffee, its cold and nasty. all the needles are clear and the k cup holder is in place right, what could it be?

    • Almost sounds like the top needle isn’t getting a good seal with the cartridge and the water is bypassing the coffee cartridge. Our Keurig is about 2 months old and I noticed a lot of coffee ground dust around the top of the housing where the upper needle is.

      Maybe try cleaning this with something like a Q-tip and it will seal better.

      There’s also a rubber gasket associated with the top needle that helps it seal. I understand these can come off and get lost. You may check to see if its still there. Otherwise it sounds like the unit is defective.

      There’s a lot of info also at http://www.fixya.com on the Keurig that may be helpful.
