Keurig Won't Work
Other Small Kitchen Appliance Problems and Solutions
TOASTER: Don’t just ignore the setting dials on your toaster. You should change the doneness setting (darker to lighter dial) when you insert thicker bread and adjust it according to the freshness/staleness of your bread.
Turn up the dial to a higher setting if your bread is fresh and turn the dial to a slightly lower setting if your bread is approaching the end of its shelf life.
SLOW COOKER: If your slow cooker is taking longer than the recipe says it should, the most common reason is that you are removing the lid and peeking in to see how it’s looking. Have you been peeking? If so, that’s the problem!
Every time you lift the lid to peek you’re breaking the steam seal and thus need to add another 15 minutes on to the cooking time! Peek twice… add 30 minutes, etc.
BLENDER: If you don’t have a professional blender, then it can’t stand the stress of blending things that are as hard as ice or frozen fruit. Typical blenders are 500 watts and they may be able to do the job a few times, but will run out of power very quickly and eventually just quit working.
Blenders that can handle such jobs as ice crushing have at least 1,400 watts of power.
If you’ve run a cycle of white vinegar in your Keurig and it still does not work, then run another cycle of white vinegar. If it still does not work, then you can try a third cycle. If that does not work, then you may have another problem as to why your keurig won’t work. In that case, it might be time to read our review of a new Keurig machine.
