The clogging happened to my V500. I have found a way to fix the issue. The problem is that the needle that punches the top of the K-cup gets clogged. This happens because the Vue positions the K-cup in the brewer sidways so the needle is in a position for grounds to get into it. This doesn't happen with Vue cups because the area where the needle punches into the vue cup has an indent of filter material that prevents grounds coming in contact with the needle. It also does not happen in the k-cup brewers because those brewers position the K-cup upright when brewing. The fix is to unfold a paper clip and rod out the needle hole. This can be done by opening the top of the brewer and inserting the end of the paper clip in the hole of the needle (flashlight needed). Once you have inserted it move it in and out a few times, remove, close the brewer and brew an 8oz cup with nothing in the machine. You will see loose grounds in the cup. Everything should work now until it happens again (unfortunately it will). see less People have had problems with using the K-cup adapter portion of the Solofil V2.

Answer:
When I was in Bed bath & beyond the sale rep told me they removed them because they were not working properly.

Answer:
It wasn't. I bought one and would never have paid this much for it. I think it is because you cannot find them anymore.

Answer:
Since this version of the Solofill is used for the Keurig Vue system, regular K-cups will not fit. The adapter is used to facilitate the use of K-cups in the Vue system. I find that if you seat the k-cup on the adapter first before placing it in the container, it works as indicated. A lot of people do not do this and t… see more Since this version of the Solofill is used for the Keurig Vue system, regular K-cups will not fit. The adapter is used to facilitate the use of K-cups in the Vue system. I find that if you seat the k-cup on the adapter first before placing it in the container, it works as indicated. A lot of people do not do this and the point does not pierce the bottom of the k-cup allowing it to drain the coffee through it as it is supposed to. Then the coffee backs up through the top creating a big mess. I myself roast my own coffee and utilize the filter enclosed with it and it works great. Vue cups are hard to find locally and if you do find them, they are usually not what you really want. see less Since this version of the Solofill is used for the Keurig Vue system, regular K-cups will not fit.

Answer:
Hi, The lid is NOT used when using " K " cups. Carefully remove the lid buy opening the lid to about 180°, then push the lid down at the hinge. The lid gets easier to open after being removed a few times. Good luck. :-)

Answer:
It works great with using your own coffee or even tea (leaves) it works ok with using the k-cups,sometimes they don't brew so great but if your purpose for it is using loose coffee it's great

Answer:
Either would work. I chose the V2 for my V700. By being able to brew K cups, I now have a wider variety of flavors I can brew.

Answer:
It's better to empty the k cup in the plastic filter cup. The K cup does not fit in the filter and if you do not use the filter, the machine will clog and could stop working. Many people have destroyed their machine by using the kcup with this cup and I do not recommend it. Keurig was talking about making one at some p… see more It's better to empty the k cup in the plastic filter cup.

Many people have destroyed their machine by using the kcup with this cup and I do not recommend it. Keurig was talking about making one at some point and now, I will wait for their product. What we could do is using an empty vue cup keeping the filter inside and use the coffee of your choice. Take care. Anah see less It's better to empty the k cup in the plastic filter cup.
