Remove Your Old Keurig 2.0 Water Filter  

It is never possible to fix a new filter in an old water filter, so what you need to do is for you, first of all, to remove the old water filter. Let’s see how to do that:

  • Detach The Water Reservoir

The water filter is located right after the water reservoir, to get to it, you have to completely remove the water reservoir and then open the head of the water reservoir. You can now have access to it. 

  • Move Over To The Filter Unit 

The handle of your Keurig 2.0 off machine is stuck right at the water reservoir, to detach it from it, you have to hold the reservoir firmly and pull the handle out from the reservoir. 

Your water filter is stocked under the filter unit by a plastic groove that is right about the bottom of your water reservoir. To remove it you have to push the filter holder and then tug at it to make sure that you take it out. 

  • Remove The Old Water Filter

Once you have access to the old water filter, all you need to do is for you to discard it into your trash. You have to make use of your index finger and your thumb at the same time to hold the tab location down then pull out the old filter from inside of it. 

Installing The New Water Filter Of Keurig 2.0

In buying a new filter, you should know that one water filter is not sold In the market but there are more than 5-6 sets inside of it. But make sure that when buying it you get the right water filter for keurig 2.0 coffee machine. Now that you’ve bought your water filter, let’s look at how to fix it.

  • You Need To Soak Your Water Filter

The first thing you need to do is to soak your filter in warm water for 5-10 minutes. The water filter needs to be submerged in the water so you need to add more water for it to soak water and get to the bottom of the bowl. This helps the filter to soften and can easily work when you fix it in the machine. 

  • Rinse Your Water Filter

When the soaking is done, you should now rinse your water filter. You should do this on a sink and rinse it for up to 1 minute before you can take it off. 

  • Rinse Your Water Filter Holder

The lower holder of the water filter has some particles that are left there after the first filter has been removed. So you have to rinse and clean it first and also the side of the holder to remove all these particles. 

  • Fix The New Water Filter 

Once you are done with all your cleaning and rinsing, you can now fix your new water filter in your Keurig coffee machine. These few steps will help you to get the water you want.
