The next item on my list was the Keurig. It had seen better days. The super hard water we have here does a number on it even when the water is filtered though a Brita prior to going into the tank. My dad doesn't recall the last time he did it. He thought maybe when it was new. So clearly with it running slow and being heavily used it was a great task to complete. A few hours of just running vinegar, then lime away, then water until clean while watching the kids would be an easy task. I was wrong. So very very wrong.
Then trouble hit. It stopped spitting out water. The line was clogged somewhere. I blew into the tank water line and nothing. I check where the needle pierces the cup and nothing. I just need to let it sit and let the vinegar do the work. Several minutes later I try again. It spits out a cup. Awesome! More gross outcome. Then another cup. I'm on a roll now. Nope, it stops working again. Ok let it sit. 10 minutes later nothing. Let it sit some more. Still Nothing. I blow in the lines to try to clear it and nothing.
Oh Boy. I'm in trouble now.
Hubs steps in to help. He tries what I had done with the same result. It worked a bit, then it stopped. He took things apart to clear the lines in an attempt to fix it. The stuff he got out of it was gross. I can't believe we drank coffee out of it daily. With it back together and cleaned out we tried it again. It works until about cup 3 like before then it stops. Hubby tries a few things then it works a bit then stops.
Dad's final words on the subject...
"You cleaned that Keurig so well it looks brand new."
