  • Unplug it and rinse it out in the sink. Run some vinegar through it on a cycle

    No, Cen, don't use ammonia. It's toxic. You can use white vinegar and brew the white vinegar through the coffee maker. Afterwards, brew plain water through it many times to remove the vinegar. You can also take a paperclip and unbend one side. There's a needle that punctures the pod in the upper portion that you lift up to place a pod in. This needle has 3 ports that get clogged. Put the paperclip up into the needle holes to loosen grounds. You might need to do this before the vinegar and again after the plain water.

    Thank You. I meant to say White Distilled VINEGAR.

    Coffe Grounds are still coming thru empty POS (purchased separately)
