VERY IMPORTANT NEWS for Anyone Owning K10 Keurigs

A dear friend of mine and past buyer who is now a neighbor just told me today that his daughter, whom I know, had a terrible house fire because she owned a Keurig that has been part of a recall. It was devastating news and I won't go into any details, because it was extremely upsetting to me. So, I have taken this moment to PLEASE let others know about this!!

This is what he told me in an e-mail:"The switch that controls the water heater is defective on the model that  ________ [his daughter] had. Their website has an article about a recall."

I have a Keurig, and even though it may not be the kind that's been recalled, it is important to unplug it when not in use.  Why take a chance??  I will unplug mine and do it every time it's not in use. 

Keurig MINI Plus Brewer

MODEL #K10

What Occurs?
Hot liquid could escape from certain MINI Plus Brewing System units during use. Keurig has determined that this event is more likely to occur if the brewer is used to brew more than two cups in quick succession. 

Action Required
Please contact us immediately to obtain a free easy-to-install repair kit which resolves the potential issue. To determine if your brewer is among those units potentially affected based on its serial number displayed on the bottom of the unit (pictured below) visit www.miniplusbrewer.com any time or call toll-free at (844) 255-7886 Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) and Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) or email keurig@inmar.com.

Please let anyone you know that has this system about the recall!!!

The article below  was from USA Today back in 2014. 

 

Keurig Green Mountain is recalling about 6.6 million MINI Plus Brewing Systems in the U.S. and 564,000 in Canada following burn reports, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Click on the red link  to go to Keurig.com for the recall information. 

"Any reports of injury received were handled promptly," Suzanne DuLong, VP of Corporate Communications for Keurig said. "Important to note, is that any reported injuries of this issue were generally minor and we've received a very small number relative to the total number of units in the U.S. and Canada."

The company contacted the CPSC and Health Canada about the model number K10.

 

Recalled brewers have an I.D. number starting with "31," according to the safety commission.

"They are single-serve, hot beverage brewers and were sold in 13 different colors," the commission reports.

The reason? There were about 200 reports of hot water coming out of the brewer made by the Waterbury, Vt. company, including 90 reports of burn-related injuries.

"Hopefully the consumers will have some recourse, especially those badly hurt," said Carl Tobias, professor at the University of Richmond School of Law. "My major concern is public safety. Will people know if there are that many millions out there. It is the holidays and people aren't necessarily near their computers."

The machines were sold from December 2009 through December 2014 at a cost of approximately $100.

Customers are instructed to contact Keurig for a free repair of their machine.

"We are working closely with our retail customers to recall all affected product and we are in the process of fulfilling MINI Plus Brewer orders for consumers and retail customers with a new product that is not affected by the recall," the company said in a statement.

Well, thank God, William. I'm telling my mom, as I bought her a Keurig awhile ago, but we've already had house fires in our own family and our relatives, so we won't take ANY CHANCES.

Turns out that my friend's daughter has another type of Keurig Model 2.0: check this link out:http://www.saferproducts.gov/ViewIncident/1562382.

Maybe not isolated to one type....just an FYI.

We have one at home and at work, but not this particular model. Others use it but the coffee isn't nearly as good as a standard coffee pot so I stick to the tried-and-true. Thanks for sharing.

I had a Mr Coffee way back when, Ed Silva simplicity is sometimes the way to go!

Kathy Streib SERIOUSLY, I have many friends/family (and me) who really love those Keurigs...even had it in a hotel room last week --and it didn't work well__it really is a wake-up call.

Endre Barath, Jr. when my friend told me what his daughter lost it told me that I needed to immediately share this with our "clan". You would be totally as sad as me. I cried and cried.

Thanks for the heads up.  It is important to know if one's machine is part of the recall.
