Note: If your Brewer has been exposed to cold temperatures before setting it up, it should be maintained at room temperature for two hours before the subsequent brewing. An excessively cold Brewer will not be able to function.
Assemble Your Brewer
Assembling a Brewer is crucial for achieving optimal coffee brewing performance and savoring a delightful cup of coffee. Properly following instructions is essential for consistent results.
- Remove the plastic wrap from the cable, connect the Brewer to a grounded outlet, and remove any packaging tape.

7. In the Keurig B-45, the water-filling process is automated. The Brewer will automatically fill and then begin heating the water, which takes approximately four minutes. The red light next to “HEATING” on the LED Control Center will illuminate during heating. Once the water has been heated, the red light will turn off, and the button for a small mug will start flashing.
Note: Do not lift the Brewer while the water is heating.
- You may observe small amounts of water flowing from the vent and dropping into the Water Reservoir throughout this and subsequent heating processes; this is typical and should not be a concern.

- The warming procedure may take up to 15 seconds, during which the red light next to “HEATING” on the LED Control Center will stay on. Once the water has warmed, the red light will switch off.
Congratulations, With the setup process complete, you are ready to start brewing.
Ready To Brew Your First Cup
At last, your wait is over as you have reached the most awaited steps. So, are you ready to brew your hot cup of coffee in Keurig B-45?
If you’re making your first cup of hot coffee with your Keurig B-45, there are a few important steps that you should follow. These include

4. Select a K-Cup Pack.
Note: Avoid puncturing the K-Cup or removing the foil cap.
5. Place the K-cup Pack in the Pack holder.
Notes: You should be cautious with the needles since there are two of them to pierce the k Cup, one above the K-Cup Holder and the other at its base. To prevent the danger of harm, do not put your fingers in the K-Cup Holder.
6. Lower the Handle completely to close the Lid. (Within 60 seconds, you have to choose the brew size; otherwise, it will be deactivated to avoid any mishaps, for re-activation lift and lower the handle again)
7. Select the brew size: Small Cup for 5.25 oz and Small Mug for 7.25 oz.
8. The Blue Brew Button will remain illuminated during the brewing process.
Nots: You must use extra caution since the water in the K-Cup Holder is extremely hot. Lifting the Handle or opening the K-Cup Assembly Housing during brewing is risky and can result in serious injury.

Note: If the pump begins to vibrate after brewing, do not be alarmed; this is typical when the Brewer fills in preparation for the next brew.
1. Stopping The Brew Process
If you need to stop the brewing process, which has started, just press the Power Button to turn it off. Once the coffee, tea, or hot cocoa flow stops, the Green Power Light will turn off, indicating that the heating element has shut off.
Note: You may notice a reduced amount of coffee, tea, or hot cocoa in your cup during your next brewing cycle. It is necessary to perform a cleansing brew using water only. This should be done immediately following the completion of a previous brew cycle. Then your Next brew will then be of the correct volume.
Adding The Water
The Keurig B-45 features a convenient notification system that informs you when it is time to refill the Water Reservoir. The blue Add Water Light will turn on as the water in the Water Reservoir is low or if the Water Reservoir has been removed. Furthermore, your Brewer will not allow you to brew if this light has been illuminated.
The Water Reservoir can be filled in two ways:
1. While the Water Reservoir is still connected to the Brewer, remove the top, fill it with water using a jug, and replace it.
2. Then, before removing the Water Reservoir from the Brewer, remove the top from the Water Reservoir. Fill the container with water. Replace the Lid and reconnect the Water Reservoir to the Brewer. It is critical to note that the Water Reservoir should never be removed when brewing.

Can you guarantee that the coffee you make in your Brewer is hygienic? You can only claim this if your Brewer has been perfectly cleaned. Additionally, cleaning your Brewer will extend its lifespan. To ensure a hygienic brewed coffee, I am providing detailed instructions for cleaning your Keurig B-45.
How To Clean The External Parts?
Brewer’s exterior parts should be cleaned regularly. Let us begin cleaning the exterior parts.
1. First and foremost, you must ensure that your Keurig B-45 is never immersed in water or other liquids. All external components, including the Housing, should be cleaned using a soapy, damp, non-abrasive cloth.
2. The drip tray has a maximum capacity of 8 ounces; otherwise, it would overflow. Regularly, the drip tray and drip tray plate should be inspected and cleaned. Remove the drip tray assembly by sliding it toward you and keeping it level at all times to avoid spillage. The Drip Tray and Drip Tray Plate can be washed in the dishwasher.
How To Clean The K-Cup Holder Assembly?
Following the exterior cleaning, you can now clean the K-cup holder assembly. Let’s get started with the cleaning.
Cleaning the Parts
Follow the instructions below to clean the pieces of the K-cup Holder Assembly.
1. You can wash the K Cup Holder Assembly in the dishwasher.
2. Place it on the top rack of a dishwasher and use low-temperature cycles.
3. Remove the plug, and lift the handle to open the lid. Then, release the K-Cup holder from the machine by using one hand to hold the top of the holder and the other hand to push up on the bottom. (Fig.8)
4. After cleaning, use the two front ribs as a guide to align the K-Cup Holder with the opening and snap it into place from the top.
Cleaning the Funnel
Cleaning small parts, such as the funnel, is crucial to Brewer cleaning. It is because the funnel often contains drink residue that may be left behind after each use. To give it a gleaming clean, just follow these simple steps.
1. As illustrated in the image, you must pull the Funnel until it pops out to remove it from the K-Cup holder ( Fig.9)
2. The funnel can easily be cleaned in a dishwasher. Simply snap it back onto the K-Cup Holder Assembly to re-attach it.
Cleaning The Exit Needle
Do you know that a dirty needle can harbor harmful bacteria? Make it crucial to clean the Exit Needles with more care. Follow the steps below to have a perfectly cleaned Exit Needle.
1. The Exit Needle is placed at the bottom of the K-Cup Holder Assembly. Clogs caused by coffee grinds can be cleaned with a paper clip or other similar objects.
2. Now, remove the K-cup holder assembly and funnel.
3. Insert the paper clip into the needle to unclog and remove the blockage (as seen in fig. 9)
4. The K- Cup holder is dishwasher safe. Therefore, you can clean the funnel in the dishwasher.

How To Clean The Water Reservoir & Water Reservoir Lid?
If you are wondering whether the Water Reservoir and lid are dishwashers-safe. The answers to your queries are here; just waiting for you. Read on to discover all the dishwasher-related details.
1. The Water Reservoir Lid and Water Reservoir are not dishwashers safe, so never put them in it. Instead, clean them with a wet towel and thoroughly rinse them.
2. Ensure that the Water Reservoir has been properly cleaned to prevent cleansers or cleaning solutions from polluting Brewer’s water supply.
3. Avoid using a cloth to dry the Water Reservoir’s outside surface since lint may still be present.
Descale Your Keurig B-45
A build-up of minerals over time can become a problem for your Keurig B-45. This buildup can negatively impact your coffee’s taste, your coffee maker’s performance, and even its lifespan.
Regularly descaling your Brewer is crucial to maintaining its optimal performance. To ensure that you keep your Keurig B-45 in tip-top shape, here are some essential tips to keep in mind.
The mineral concentration of water varies by location. Calcium deposits can form in your Brewer depending on the mineral composition of the water. Although the scale is non-toxic, failing to pay attention can harm Brewer’s performance.
Descaling your Brewer facilitates the elimination of contaminated minerals and other materials from your Brewer. The Brewer should be descaled every three to six months to ensure peak performance.
If calcium deposits accumulate more quickly, the Brewer must be de-scaled more frequently. Your Brewer can detect when scale building is interfering with its performance. When descaling becomes necessary, the red light next to “DESCALE” will illuminate. As seen in the image (fig. 10).
To thoroughly descale your Brewer, follow the methods below.
Note: You should be aware that your coffee maker will continue to function even if the term “DESCALE” is shown. If you wait too long to descale the Brewer after it has been displayed, it will be ruined. When this happens, the term “DESCALE” will begin to flash to notify you that if you don’t descale quickly away, otherwise your Keurig B-45 will potentially suffer damage.
Are you a descaling for the first time an old user who wants to refresh your memory? No worries! Just follow these step-by-step instructions to ensure a proper descaling of your Keurig B-45. Let’s get started!
Check that you have everything you need to begin the descaling procedure. Begin the process by following the steps outlined below.
- Make sure you have at least 48 ounces of pure white vinegar on hand. You’ll also need a small mug (no paper cups) and an empty sink.
2. First, drain the water from the reservoir.
3. Now, Turn off the Auto Off feature.
Fill And Clean
To clean the Water Reservoir, fill it partially with vinegar. Read the instructions below to learn more about this procedure.
1. Begin by adding vinegar to the Water Reservoir.
2. Place a large cup on the Drip Tray Plate and begin the water brewing cycle.
Note: It should be noted that K-Cup should not be used during descaling.
3. Only press the Small Mug Button, then empty the cup’s contents into the sink.
4. Repeat this technique three times more.
- Allow the Keurig B-45 to stand for at least 4 hours without turning it off.
Clean Water Rinse
The rinsing procedure will begin when the filling and cleaning processes are completed. To properly rinse it, you must follow the directions.
1. Fill the Water Reservoir with clean water.
2. Place a small mug on the drip tray plate and begin brewing water without a K-Cup. Then, dispense the small mug’s contents into the sink.
3. Continue to brew until the Water Reservoir is depleted of water.
4. If you detect any leftover flavor, run more water brew cycles.
5. Repeat the descaling method described above if the red ‘DESCALE’ light on the LED Control Center stays bright after the procedure is completed.
How To Store Your Keurig B-45?
Storing your Keurig B-45 should be one of your top priorities when you’re going on vacation or a long trip. Don’t simply leave it sitting on a shelf, collecting dust. But Proper storage requires some mandatory steps, and you must get your hands on this useful information. Let’s start.
- Before storing your Keurig B-45, drain the Water Reservoir and ensure it is safe and dry.
Note: Please maintain your Brewer upright to prevent water leaks from the inner tank.
- Make sure your Brewer is at room temperature. If you store it in a chilly environment, the residual water in the reservoirs may freeze. When you’re ready to use them after storing them, I recommend running three cleaning brews without a K-Cup and rinsing them with new water.
- Before relocating your Brewer, turn it off, unplug it from the wall, and empty the Water Reservoir. If your Brewer has been exposed to temperatures below freezing, please allow at least two hours for it to warm up.
Your taste buds are craving coffee, but your Keurig B-45 has developed a glitch. Don’t let it ruin your night – you can fix it yourself! Understanding how to handle frequent issues will empower you to be self-sufficient rather than relying on professionals for every little problem. Check out the following table for common issues and their solutions. With these troubleshooting tips, you’ll never have to go without your beloved night coffee again.
|If Brewer does nothave power.||● Connect Brewer to a separate outlet.● Make sure that the plug is inserted firmly.● Use an alternative outlet.● If required, reset the circuit breaker in your house.● Verify whether the power button has been activated and the power light is on.|
|If Brewer is notbrewing when used forthe first time.||● Before making the first brew, the Brewer must be primed by filling the internal hot water tank. The red light next to “DESCALE” will flash on the LED Control Center.● Allow your Keurig B-45 to get up to room temperature for at least two hours before turning it on if it is cold or frozen.|
|If Brewer is not brewing.||● Ensure that the K-Cup portion pack is securely inserted into the K-Cup Holder and that the blue lights beneath the brew buttons on the LED Control Center are blinking.● If the blue light next to the phrase “ADD WATER” on the LED Control Center is on, fill the Water Reservoir with water or check that it is firmly placed in its base.|

|If Brewer shuts offautomatically.||● Ensure that the Auto Off Timer function is not activated. Press the black button to disable the Auto Off Timer function if the green light next to “AUTO OFF” on the LED Control Center is on.|
Finally, I’d like to share some practical ideas with you that you may utilize during your brewing experience.
Always Have Your Brewer Switched On.
I recommend that you leave your Keurig B-45 turned on at all times to have a fresh cup of coffee, tea, or hot cocoa whenever you desire. So you won’t have to wait if your taste buds demand it. Alternatively, you may program the Brewer to switch off automatically two hours after your last brew.
Make Use Of Bottled Or Filtered Water
I strongly advise you to use filtered or bottled water to improve the flavor of your coffee. Because water quality varies by region, you may detect an unpleasant flavor in your coffee, such as chlorine or other mineral flavors. To avoid this, you should drink filtered or bottled water.
Customize The Size, Flavor & Brew That’s Perfect For You
There are other K-Cup and cup-size options. Still, if you want a solid and robust cup of coffee, I recommend using an Extra Bold K-Cup, which contains up to 30% more ground coffee than standard versions. The most important pro tip is that a lower brew size results in a more intense flavor, while a higher brew size results in a less intense flavor.
Plug Brewer Into Its Own Grounded Outlet
Always connect your Brewer to a separate grounded outlet for your and your loved ones’ safety. If the outlet is overburdened with other appliances, your Brewer may not function correctly. A separate circuit and outlet should be installed for your Brewer.
Brewing Into A Travel Mug
Remove the Drip Tray Assembly and set the travel cup on the Drip Tray Base to brew coffee into a travel mug.

In most cases, clogs caused by coffee grounds can be cleared by using a paperclip and a plastic straw.
How Do You Know If Your Keurig Needs Descaling?
Descaling is an essential maintenance task that should be performed every 3 to 6 months or as indicated by the descale light for certain Keurig Brewers.
