Many Keurig models come with an Energy saver or auto-off feature to reduce power usage.

Keurig auto-off feature helps in saving the energy consumed and reduces the risk of electrical fires, but sometimes it is quite frustrating when Keurig keeps shutting off automatically a few minutes after the last brew.

It’s even worse when Keurig constantly turns itself off in between brewing coffee. The same thing happens to me, so in this article guide, I have described the complete procedure to get out of this issue. So keep reading to learn how!
