Accordingly, what does it mean when Keurig says descale?
Run the machine: Start the brew cycle without inserting a K-cup. Repeat until reservoir is empty, discarding the mug contents after each brewing cycle. This process will help remove lime and scale buildup. Keurig recommends descaling your brewer at least every 3 to 6 months depending on your water source.
Likewise, how long do Keurigs last? The purifying filter in the water reservoir on your Keurig is designed to last a finite number of brew cycles, not any particular length of time. The less you use your Keurig, the less often you should need to replace it. Keurig says its filters should be changed every two months.
Considering this, how do I descale my Keurig Classic?
