How to Easily Turn OFF and ON Auto Off on Keurig

Keurig coffee makers are a popular choice among coffee lovers worldwide. One of the convenient features of these machines is the “Auto-off” function, which automatically shuts off the machine after a certain period of inactivity. While this is a useful feature that helps conserve energy and prevent accidents, some users may want to turn it off to suit their preferences. If you’re one of those users wondering how to turn off “auto-off” on your Keurig machine, you’re in the right place.

In this article, we’ll explain what the auto-off feature is, how it works, and provide step-by-step instructions on how to disable it.

What is Auto-Off Feature on Keurig

The “auto off” feature on a Keurig is a built-in function that helps to conserve energy for the machine. This feature is programmed to automatically turn off after a certain period of inactivity. However, the specific duration of the auto-off feature may vary depending on the model.

For instance, some models may have a shorter auto-off time, such as 1.5 minutes, while others may have a longer time, such as two hours. Some popular models with this feature include Keurig K-Supreme/Plus, K-Mini, K-Duo/Plus, K-Elite, K-Cafe, K-Select, K15, and Keurig 2.0 K400/K500 series, among others.

If you find that your Keurig keeps turning itself off unexpectedly, it’s likely that the auto-off feature is enabled. This can be a bit frustrating, especially if you want to keep the machine on for an extended period of time.
