How do you fix error code 2 on a Keurig?

Published on April 10th, 2022

Error code 2 on a Keurig coffee maker indicates that there is a water reservoir problem. This error can be caused by a few different things, such as a water line being blocked or a water filter being clogged. If the water reservoir is not able to fill up, then the coffee maker will not be able to brew a cup of coffee. To fix this problem, first make sure that the water line is not blocked. If the water line is clear, then check the water filter to see if it needs to be replaced.
