Keurig MINI Plus B31 Coffee Maker Stopped Working

One of the things I enjoy doing is "tinkering" with electronics to see how it works. If it does not work I love to try to figure out how to make it work. My grand uncle owned Lum's Business Equipment in Hawai'i which may explain why I enjoy it as much as I do. I find it to be very relaxing.


Keurig MINI Plus B31 Coffee Maker Stopped Working

One of my latest projects was a Keurig MINI Plus B31 Coffee Maker that I found at Salvation Army for $25. I love the challenge so when I brought it home I started testing it.

At first the water would not flow so I figured that something was clogging the flow.

Solution? Carefully clear out the coffee grinds surrounding the very-sharp needle that punctures KCups. I used bread twist ties to clear the way. Be careful with the very-sharp needle.

I use a Keurig My K-Cup Reusable Coffee Filter to cut down on waste. You can find a genuine one at the Keurig website for $14.99 or at EBay for $5.95 which includes shipping. Note that there is an older version and one for the new Keurig 2.0 coffee machines.

Problem solved.

I am not sure what my next project will be but I look forward to the challenge!

You are quite the handy girl. I am not good at that. More a decorator, techy type.

Lana Robbins Realtor ® Licensed Real Estate Broker Interesting.  I can patch holes in a wall, clean dust from the vaccuum but coffee pots, no.  I'm impressed!

Lana Robbins Licensed Managing Broker/Owner I am wondering if you had any parts left over? My brother always disassembled items at home and always had parts left over. It was so funny!

Thanks LOL Fortunately that hasn't happened to me yet but I usually take pics of the item in case I have to put it back together like Humpty.
