Have you ever gone to your Keurig for that much needed cup of coffee only to find that it's not working?  Or maybe it works but not as well as it used to?  Most times, you don't need a new unit, just need a paperclip.

You Keurig is designed to last many years but not without maintenance.  After a while, Keurig coffee makers don't work as well as they did when taken out of the box.  Sometimes they stop working all together.  It is estimated that many Keurig coffee makers are tossed in the garbage, when all they need is a little TLC.

If the paperclip method doesn't work, your Keurig probably came with a maintenance tool that flushes the needles with water to remove compacted coffee grounds.

Don't buy a new coffee maker until you watch this video.
