If you do not prime keenly, you will feel the taste of chemicals in the cups of coffee that you will brew at the start. 

Similarly, After a long period of inactivity, many germs and dust will accumulate in your Brewer, affecting your taste of coffee if you do not perform the priming process. You should follow all the steps below to receive an excellent cup of coffee from your Keurig B-140. This process of setting the Brewer for brewing is called priming. Let’s start!

How To Care For Your Keurig B-140?

Care of Keurig B-140 is mandatory for its proper functioning. You should follow all the steps below to protect your Brewer so that it works properly. So, let’s get started!

1. Cleaning External Parts

It is recommended to periodically clean the external parts of your Brewer to keep it in good working condition. Let’s start cleaning!

  • Avoid immersing the base unit in water or any other liquid. A soapy, damp, or nonabrasive cloth must clean all external components and housing.
  • Up to 230ml of Overflow can be accumulated in the drip tray. Therefore, the Drip Tray and Drip Tray Plate should be inspected and cleaned after regular intervals. Removal of drip tray assembly can be done by simply pulling it towards you and keeping it level at all times to avoid splashing. Both the Drip Tray and the Drip Tray Plate are Kitchen Porter safe.

2. Cleaning The K-Cup Portion Pack Holder Assembly

You should clean The K-Cup portion pack holder assembly after regular intervals of time. This cleaning will make your appliance more effective and increase its lifespan. Let’s get into its detailed cleaning!

1. Cleaning The Parts

The K-Cup Holder Assembly is dishwasher safe. Open the cover and lift the Handle to remove the K-Cup holder assembly from Brewer. Hold the top of the K-Cup holder with one hand and push up on the bottom of the K-cup holder from underneath with another hand until it releases. When the cleaning process is done, align the K-Cup holder with the opening by using two front ribs as a guide to fix it in its place from the upper side.

2. Cleaning The Funnel

Pull the funnel to remove it from the K-Cup holder until it separates. The funnel is dishwasher-safe. If you want to replace it, snap it again on the K-Cup holder assembly.

3. Cleaning The Exit Needle

Exit needle is found at the bottom of the K-Cup holder assembly. If a needle gets clogged by the coffee grinds, then a paper clip and another similar tool can resolve the issue. Remove the K-Cup holder, and introduce the paper clip into the needle to loosen and remove the clog. The K-Cup Holder is dishwasher safe.

CAUTION: The needles are very sharp and puncture the K-Cup holder from the top and the bottom. Therefore, please do not put your fingers in the K-Cup chamber; it can be dangerous.

4. Cleaning The Water Reservoir And Water Reservoir Lid

A wet, soapy, and smooth piece of cloth is used to clean the Lid of the water reservoir. Refrain from placing the Lid into the dishwasher. The dishwasher can be used for cleaning water reservoirs, or it can also be cleaned with soapy water and then rinsed utterly. The cloth should not be used to dry the inner side of the water reservoir as the lint may remain inside.

Note: Make sure to wash the water reservoir entirely after cleaning so that no cleaners or cleaning solution is left in this area because these cleaners can pollute the water supply in Brewer.

How To Descale Keurig B-140?

The water type and quantity of minerals/metal ions vary from region to region. Based on the mineral content of water in your area, calcium deposits may form layers inside your Brewer. This deposit is not toxic, but if not treated timely, it can affect the performance of your Brewer. Removal of the scales is necessary to maintain the heating element and many other internal parts of your Brewer that directly interact with water. Your Brewer should be descaled after regular intervals (every 3-6 months) so that its performance remains maximum. Scaling of calcium deposits occurs very quickly, so Keurig b-140 should be descaled periodically.

A sensor is connected to your Brewer that can detect the problems occurring in your Brewer due to the accumulation of calcium deposits. When this is detected, the amber light next to ‘DESCALE’ will be illuminated.

NOTE: The functioning of your Brewer will continue even after the illumination of Descale light. If you do not descale it instantly, the scale will build up continuously, damaging your Brewer. In this case, the Amber light will begin to blink, which is a sign that if you do not descale your Brewer immediately, then some potential damage can occur in your Brewer.

Descaling your machine using the method below after seeing the DESCALE light brighten up on the LED control center is necessary. So, let’s get started!


The preparation consists of the following two steps;

Step 1:

1. Take almost 48 ounces(1.4L) of concentrated vinegar.

2. An empty sink and a ceramic cup (avoid using paper cups) are also needed.

Step 2: Empty the Water Reservoir by removing water from it.

 2. Fill And Clean

Step 1: Pour the white vinegar into the water reservoir and fill it to the line a little below the top edge of the clear viewing area.

Step 2: Place the ceramic cup on the drip tray. You Should not insert the K-Cup portion pack. Now press the brew button to start the descaling rinse. Pour the content of the cup into the sink.

Step 3: Perform the descaling Brew again unless the LED “ADD WATER” becomes ON because the water reservoir is empty. Pour the hot liquid from the cup into the sink after completion of each cycle. I suggest using the largest brew size to speed up the process.

NOTE: You should open and close the Lid between each cycle so the blue Brew light will flash.

Step 4: Wash the water reservoir thoroughly and fill it with fresh water.

Step 5: Turn off the auto-off feature of your Brewer and leave Brewer for four hours while it is on.

3. Water Rinse Step

The last step is to finish the descaling! 

Step 1: Now, perform the draining process (See the “Draining the Keurig B-140” section above).

Step 2: Empty and fill the water reservoir with fresh water again.

Step 3: Re-prime Brewer and refill the water reservoir

Step 4: Place the ceramic cup on the drip tray and allow the regular brew cycle without using K-Cup. Empty the cup content into the sink. It would be best if you kept in mind that the hot water tank still has white vinegar contents in it.

Step 5: You should do the brewing again unless the water in the water reservoir is finished, pouring the liquid content of the cup into the sink after every cyclical process. You should use the largest brew size for a fast process. Open and close the Lid during each cycle and wait for the flashing of the blue brew light.

Step 6: If you feel any residual taste of vinegar in your coffee, then you have to perform an additional water rinse cycle.

NOTE: If the amber ‘DESCALE’ light is still illuminated on the LED Control Center after the completion of the procedure, repeat the descaling procedure mentioned above.

Storage Of Keurig B-140

Keurig B-140 is a very delicate and technical electrical appliance. A little bit of ignorance at the time of its storage can disturb the working of your Keurig B-140.

It would be best to store your Brewer by emptying its water reservoir and keeping it in a frost-free environment. Let’s see the necessary instructions regarding the storage of Keurig B-140.

  1. Empty the Water Reservoir and drain your brewer before storing and make sure you store your brewer in a safe and frost-free environment.

  4. If you want to take your Brewer somewhere else, turn the Brewer off, unplug it, empty the Water Reservoir, and drain the Brewer.
