Every time I try to descale my Keurig B60 with vinegar it plugs as soon as the vinegar solution enters the machine.  Only a third of a cup actually makes it through the machine, then nothing.

 

I will leave it for 4 hours as recommended in the owners manual with whatever vinegar is in the machine to dissolve some of the hard water scaling, and then I have to bang, shake, turn upside down and whack it to get water going thorough it again.

 

So is there some advice on how to descale this machine?  I do have hard water, so once every couple of weeks would probably be required, but it takes hours to get it "unplugged" and working again and it is a real pain.

Have you tried using undiluted vinegar? No need to purchase the Keurig descaling solution as shown in the video, but others have had success using a tank full of inexpensive undiluted vinegar .

then follow the video, paying close attention to the end which addresses your problem

Let me know how it works... I haven't descaled my keurig since I purchased it...
