Do You Own a Keurig 2.0 – Know How To Fix Its Water Pressure

Keurig 2.0

Most people who purchase a Keurig coffee maker are pleased with the appliance.

However, some consumers have problems with the water pressure of their machines, which leads to an oversaturated coffee before they can drink it. 

There are many reasons why your Keurig 2.0 machine may not produce enough water pressure - clogged filters, low water level, or the temperature is too high. But how to fix this? 

Read on to know the fixes to the problem.

How to solve the problem

If the water pressure rises too high, many Keurig brewers will ‘shut down,’ interrupting the brew cycle and flashing the ‘Water Under Pressure’ warning. 

If your machine shuts down owing to high water pressure, remove the pod and perform a single 'water only' cycle to clear the problem. 

If the warning appears, again and again, the ‘needles’ that penetrate your pods may be clogged with coffee grounds or other muck. 

Many machines include a Needle Maintenance Accessory; if you've been using your device for a time, you may need to complete the following procedure:
  • Turn off the power. Unplug the gadget from the power supply.
  • You need to pour water into the silicone bulb in the centre of the brewer maintenance accessory.
  • To open your brewer, pull the handle. Then, place the pod holder in the maintenance accessory. 
  • Check that the arrows on the ring are pointing downward. Firmly press down.
  • To extract coffee grinds, raise and lower the handle five times.
  • Take out the brewer maintenance tool. If you look inside the bulb, you can see the removed coffee grounds.
  • Prepare a purifying brew. You can use just water and no pod, or you can insert a cleansing rinse pod if you like. Brew a 6-ounce cup using your touchscreen, allowing the hot water or cleansing rinse to flow through the machine. When finished, throw away the contents of the cup.
  • Wash the maintenance accessory in warm water and allow it to air dry.
  • Replace the pod holder in the machine. First, check to see whether it clicks. After that, replace the water tank.

Sometimes this may not work as you might not have the maintenance accessory. If this is the case, you can ‘poke through’ the needles on your device with an unfurled ordinary size paper clip. 

Take particular caution because these needles are incredibly sharp and, if broken, may need the repair or replacement of your machine. 

To gently poke through the clogged hands, use a typical paper-clip straightened out as much as possible, rather than a large or rubber-coated one. 

Then, much like with the maintenance accessories, run a few cleansing brews, and, hopefully, you'll be able to brew coffee again.


The water pressure of your Keurig 2.0 machine may be a problem, which you can solve quickly. The maintenance accessories and the paper-clip solution may help you resolve the issue. 

The problem may arise due to a clogged filter, a broken needle, or an insufficient water level. Once you have fixed the problem, try brewing a cup of coffee again.
