This guide provides instructions on how to remove a physical blockage from a Keurig K-Mini. A blockage in the machine can cause an array of issues, such as the hot beverage spurting out of the machine, or not allowing the beverage to dispense at all. A small pointed tool will be needed for this repair, such as a thumbtack, sewing needle, or toothpick. The guide instructs users on how to safely use this pointed object to successfully remove the blockage so that beverages will dispense properly.
