Draining the Internal Water Tank of Your Keurig B150, K150, B155, K155, K150P, or B150P Brewer

Time needed: 10 minutes.

Learn how to drain the internal hot and cold water reservoirs of your Keurig B150, K150, K155, B155, K150P, B150P, K3000, K3000SE, B3000, B3000SE, or Keurig OfficePro Premier Commercial Brewing Systems.

  1. Unplug & Disconnect Your Brewer

    Ensure that your Brewer is powered off by unplugging it from your power supply. If you have your Brewer connected to a Direct Water Line Supply, be sure to disconnect the Brewer from your water supply before continuing to the next step.

  2. Remove the Access Panel

    Find the Access Panel located on the back of your Brewer. Using a screwdriver, remove the securing screw.

  3. Locate & Drain the Drain Tubes

    You should see 2 water line drain tubes: one for the Cold Water Tank and the other for the Hot Water Tank. Lower the tube leading to whichever water tank you wish to drain, remove the Plug, and drain the water into a suitably-sized container.

  4. Replace the Access Panel

    When draining is finished, replace the Plug(s) on the drain tubes and replace the Access Panel with the screw.

    Same issue as another above K150p wont turn on, it just clicks and nothing else. Love the machine so any idea whats wrong and how to fix ?

    1. John

      Hey Barry, unplug the machine and letting it sit for an hour or so with the reservoir REMOVED. Oddly sometimes having the reservoir removed when turning back on the power can sort of “reset” things and fix the issue. This also assumes of course the issue is not caused by a broken power outlet.

    I just purchased a keurig professional series b155. When I turned on the unit initially, the display menu said to remove and add water to the water reservoir. I did this and reattached the reservoir to the brewer. The display will not continue past the ‘fill reservoir’ steps of the setup process. What do I do? I repeated this step several times and I cannot move forward to continue the setup to brew a cup of coffee.

    My k150 won’t power on, it just clicks and the display won’t light up. How or can I reset this?

    1. John

      Hi Lorraine, if you’ve verified that it’s connected to power and a working outlet, then I recommend trying the following: unplug the K150 and remove the reservoir. Let it sit unplugged for an hour. Strangely enough I’ve found that sometimes the issue can be fixed with the reservoir removed.

    I am missing one of the water hose (for K155). Where can I buy it ?

    When I did this the cold water tube had some black residue up in it. Can that be cleaned?

    1. John

      Hi Jennifer:

      The black residue is called ‘scale’ which happens when the minerals in your water attach to the insides of your Keurig (this also can happen with your plumbing as well). To clean this we recommend using one of the readily available Descaling Solutions on the market, or you can simply use white vinegar. You can prevent this from happening in the future by installing a Direct Water Line Filter Kit. We recommend the PureWater Filters brand, as they specifically include a scale inhibitor in their filters.
