Brewing a partial cup• If a prime sequence has been performed, without a cleansing brew, the first cup may be “oversized”. The next cup brewed will be brewed to the proper selected size.
• The Exit Needle may be clogged. (refer to page 9).
• Clean K-Cup® Holder if necessary and rinse under faucet. (refer to page 9).
• A partial drain process may have occurred. The brewer will brew the next cup at the selected size.
• The Water Reservoir may have been removed during brewing. Replace the Water Reservoir and perform a cleansing brew.
• If the amber 'DE-SCALE' light is illuminated, descale the Brewer (refer to page 9).
• If you have repeated the descale procedure on your Brewer two times and the light is still on, contact Customer Service at 1-888-CUP-BREW, (1-888-287-2739).

Drain process notes:• Drain / Brew Valve turned during a brew cycle: If this occurs, the brewing cycle is immediately stopped. Recovery: The brew that immediately follows may provide an improper volume, so perform a brew without a K-Cup®. The next brew will be of the proper selected size.
• Drain / Brew Valve turned to ‘DRAIN’ and back to ‘BREW’: The brewer is smart and knows if the Drain button has been pressed. If it has not been pressed, when the valve is turned back to ‘BREW’, the brewer will not require a Prime.
• Drain / Brew Valve turned to ‘DRAIN’ and Drain button pushed, but tank not emptied. To brew, a prime will be required and then perform a cleansing brew.
