Helpful Hints

To make your coffee-making journey smooth and fun, here I have listed some helpful hints. So, let’s check them out! 

Keep Your Keurig B-60 Turned On Every Time.

To enjoy a delicious cup of coffee every time you want, it is better to keep your brewer on every time. By this act, you will not have to wait for your brewer to first heat up. The Brewer can, however, be fully programmed to turn on and off according to your schedule. Or, if you wish, configure the Brewer to automatically switch off after a period of time. Making use of the Brewer convenient for you is very simple. Follow the directions in the “Program ON/OFF feature in Keurig B-60” section.

Use Bottled Or Filtered Water.

For best-tasting coffee, tea, or cocoa, use filtered water. Every location has different water quality. Therefore, it is better to use bottled water or water from a filter system if you detect an unfavorable flavor in your coffee, such as chlorine or other mineral tastes. 

Customize Brew Size & Flavor.

Your Keurig Brewer provides you limitless possibilities to choose the size, flavor, and brew that’s ideal for you thanks to its selection of more than 200 K-Cup variations and three brew sizes (Small Cup-5.25 oz., Small Mug-7.25 oz., and Large Mug-9.25 oz.). Choose an Extra Bold K-Cup and the appropriate brew size for a potent, robust cup (up to 30% more ground coffee than ordinary types). The flavor in your cup will be more potent the smaller the brew size. The flavor intensity in your cup decreases as the brew size increases.

Plug Keurig Into An Independent Outlet.

Your Brewer might not work correctly if the electrical circuit is overburdened with other appliances. The Brewer has to be run on a separate circuit from other appliances.

Brew Into A Travel Mug.

Simply take off the drip tray assembly and set the travel mug on the drip tray base to brew into a travel cup.

Descale Your Keurig B-60 Regularly.

It is recommended by Keurig to descale your coffee makers every 3-6 months or after 300 coffee cups. To see the descaling details, refer to the section “Descale your Keurig B-60” below in this article.

Cleaning The K-Cup Holder Assembly 

The K-cup holder assembly is dishwasher-safe. However, use low-temperature cycles in the dishwasher while cleaning the K-Cup pod holder. This part is easy to disassemble from the brewer. So, to remove it from the brewer, open the Lid by raising the handle. Grab the K-cup holder from the top with one hand and use another to push its bottom from the underside until it releases.  After cleaning the K-cup holder, align it using its two front ribs as a guide, and snap it in place.

De-Scaling Your Keurig B-60 

Water’s mineral content varies from region to region. Your Brewer may develop calcium deposits or scale based on the mineral content of the water in your area. Although the scale is not harmful; however, can impair the brewer’s performance if remain un-noticed.  By de-scaling your brewer, you will be able to maintain the heating element and other internal parts that come into contact with the water much more easily. Thus, do descaling every 3- 6 months for good performance of your brewer. 

Your Keurig B-60 has sensors that tell when scale buildup affects the brewer’s performance. The LCD Control Center will show “DE-SCALE” when this situation happens. However, you should De-scale your brewer every three to six months even if “DE-SCALE” is not displayed. If the LCD Control Center shows “DE-SCALE,” you should De-scale your brewer as soon as possible. Let’s get started!

1. Prepare: 

  1. Make sure to have  48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar on hand, an empty sink, and a large ceramic mug ( Don’t use a paper cup).
Before descaling, gather 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar, an empty sink, and a large ceramic mug (avoid using a paper cup).

2. Empty the water in Water Reservoir. 

Ensure the Water Reservoir is empty before proceeding with any maintenance or descaling procedures.

3. Disable the Auto OFF feature 

To deactivate the Auto Off feature, access the "Auto Off" programming mode through the Menu Button, and adjust the settings accordingly.

B. Fill And Clean: 

1. Fill the Water Reservoir with vinegar. 

Fill the Water Reservoir completely with undiluted white vinegar to initiate the descaling process.

2. Place the ceramic cup on the Drip Tray and press the Large Mug Button to start descaling process (Don’t use a K-CUP Portion Pack). Pour the hot content from the mug into the sink.

To begin the descaling process, position a ceramic mug on the Drip Tray, press the Large Mug Button (without using a K-Cup), and discard the hot liquid into the sink.

3. Repeat this brew cycle 3 times. 

Perform the brewing cycle three times in succession.

After completing the brew cycles, leave the brewer on and let it stand for 4 hours.

Despite all the recommendations, cleaning, and maintenance procedures, still, this brewer is not user serviceable. For service, I refer you to the warranty section of this guide. 


Empty the Water Reservoir before you store it, and make sure to keep your Brewer in a safe and frost-free atmosphere. Store your Brewer in an upright position to prevent water leakage from the Inner tank. Don’t store your Brewer in a chilly atmosphere, as the brewer may be damaged if the water freezes inside.

When you decide to use it after storage, you have to wash out the Water Reservoir and refill it with fresh water. I recommend running three cleansing brews without a K-cup before brewing coffee.

If you decide to move to a different location with your Keurig B-60, switch it off, unplug it, and empty the Water Reservoir. If you are in an environment where your brewer faces below-freezing temperature, then be sure to let it settle to room temp for 2 hours before using it.


Despite all the good manufacturing, every appliance can face some technical issues. However, you can resolve these problems yourself before rushing toward a professional. So, let’s get started!
