  3. Avoid using a cloth to dry the outer surface of the water reservoir since lint may still be present.

Descale Your Brewer

Your concern for your health made you clean your Brewer; now it’s time to Descale, as this step is even more critical for your health. Why? Because every type of water, whether filtered or unfiltered, includes minerals like calcium and magnesium, which travel through your coffee maker and build a gunk on the heating element. This mineral accumulation can be removed by descaling a coffee machine. 

Why Is It Important To Descale Your Brewer?

Image content:

1. When descaling is required, the “DESCALE” indicator light will turn on and appear red.

The mineral composition of water varies from one place to another. Calcium deposits or scales may be produced in your Brewer, depending on the mineral concentration of the water. Although the scale is non-toxic, it can damage Brewer’s performance if not attended. 

Descaling your Brewer helps keep the contaminated minerals and other elements away from your Brewer. The Brewer should be descaled every three to six months to guarantee optimum performance.

If calcium deposits start forming more quickly, they must be descaled more often. This Brewer can identify when scale buildup is affecting its performance. The red light next to “DESCALE” will turn on when the descaling becomes necessary,  as shown in figure (fig. 10).

 Follow the below instructions to Descale your Brewer completely.

Note: You should know that Brewer will still work, even though the word “DE-SCALE” is displayed. The Brewer can become damaged if you wait too long to descale once it is displayed. When this happens, the word “DE-SCALE” will start to flicker to warn you that the Brewer could sustain harm if you don’t descale right away.

Descaling Process

Is this your first time descaling, or have you forgotten the descaling instruction in the middle of the process? If YES, you must follow the step guide to describe yourself adequately. Let’s start this.

2. First, empty the Water from Water Reservoir

How To Store Your Keurig B-41?    

If you are taking an extended vacation and concerned about your Keurig B-41, storing it rather than ruining it in the dust is better. To store it properly, you must take all these mandatory steps

  1. Before storage, you must empty the water reservoir and ensure your Brewer is in a secure and dry atmosphere.
  2.  Please make sure to keep your Brewer in its upright position to prevent water leakage from the inner tank.
  3.  Make sure to place your Brewer at room temperature. If you place it at a cold temperature, the residual water in the reservoirs may freeze.
  4. Turn off your Brewer, unhook it from the wall, and empty the water reservoir before moving it to a new place.
  5. Please wait at least two hours for your Brewer to get up to room temperature if it has been exposed to below-freezing temperature

It’s nighttime, and your taste buds start craving coffee; you turn on the Brewer, but there is a glitch. There are rare chances that you will find a professional who can repair this glitch. So are you going to miss your dose of night Coffee? Not because you can repair it by yourself.
