BE CAREFUL! The new Keurig coming out has a chip in it that will NOT allow you to use anything but new Keurig cups. (K2 cups) If you're going to get a new machine do it soon or get stuck with the old cups that won't brew.

All older K-Cup brewers will brew and continue to work with the K-Cups with this anti-unlicensed graphic or tech built into the K-Cups. So this means your old brewer will continue to work and it can brew unlicensed K-Cups, but if you want to use the new K-Carafe packs and or VUE packs you’ll need to get a Keurig 2.0.

Yeah, the Keurig Company would have replaced it but I'd have to pay for it (around $100)~!

I had the same problem with my Keurig, cleaned it like I was told and descaled with white vinegar. It didn't correct the problem at first but after a few days of using it became unclogged. This was back in February. No problems since. Don't buy another one just use it every day by running water through it first before brewing your coffee. It should correct itself. What I also did while it was clogged is used the same K-cup twice for my cup of coffee and that seemed to be fine.

Default How to clean a Keurig?

I just watched video here in the real estate section about a product used to clean jetted tubs called OH YUK. It seemed to do a good job.

When you think about it water is sucked into the Keurig machine and then it gets heated then sits there sometimes until the next day or 2. Kinda Gross.

Is there a similar product like OH YUK to give the Keurig a good interior cleaning?

Yep. Vinegar. Plain ole' vinegar.

Fill the reservoir, and run cycles (without a kcup in the basket) until the reservoir is empty. Then run two reservoirs of clean water.

I think we have a thread here already on cleaning Keurig's; I will check.

ETA: Found it and merged.

I bought a descaler in the grocery store the other day by a brand named Dip-It. It worked out great. Also remember that using the hot chocolate K-cups a lot will clog it.
