Since that didn't work, I have to buy a descaling solution to clean it out, but I'm hesitate. Reading the reviews here on Keurig, I'm thinking it is best to just buy another machine. Any of y'all descale your machines~?

A poster on a Keurig site said to just shake or jostle the machine somehow-I held mine upside down and shook it a few times .

After that, it was fine. Apparently air pockets or something.
^^^^This. If yours has the water container on the side take it off and then smack the machine a bit. Also, take a paperclip and unfold just one end and poke it into the two small holes that are in the needle that pierces the K-cup. Often times the paperclip trick is sufficient alone--without having to smack it around.

Then buy a GOOD coffee maker and take care of it. I have NEVER had problems getting ten + years out of them.

If you live in the USA and kept a kitchen appliance a whole 2 years you are undoing the magic of product engineers and marketers. We live in the ultimate disposable society. Think about all of those stupid little containers of coffee/tea. They cost a fortune and go into landfills if not recycled. You can buy a 3 lb can of ground coffee or bag of beans for way less and get a better up of Joe.

I guess convenience has its price

I went to the grocery and got some vinegar and did the process. It's either brewing a 1/3 cup or not brewing at all~!

I don't think I could in good conscious exchange a two+ year old appliance, but maybe that's just me.

That is BBB's policy, whatever you get from them they replace for free no matter the age...and I told them it was 2 years old~!

Even Costco replaces items for free if they don't work no matter the age~! I've lost track of how many paper shredders I've purchased from them that they have replaced for free~!

Keurig would have probably replaced it. They gave us a new one for free when ours stopped working. Now of course our second one has stopped, same as the first. I love it, but cheap product IMO. I still have my four cup Mr. Coffee I purchases for $15 years ago I use!
