My guess is that the grind on your coffee is off or you are filling the filter too full.  Are you grinding your own coffee?  Or are you just buying pre-ground?  If you’re grinding your own, make sure you’re grinding it for a mesh filter, not a paper filter or drip machine.  Secondly, only fill the filter 1/2 to 2/3 full of coffee and see if that makes a difference.  Technically, you really only need like 1-2 teaspoons of coffee in the filter; any more and it will likely overflow.

I have a reusable filter and have never had an issue at all.  I just dump a couple of teaspoons in it and am good to go.

I would bring it back and try another one.

We hvae it too and havent had an issue.  Like pp, Im guessing you are overfilling it, or you are grinding it too finely/using too fine a grind and the water cannot get through.

If it is overfilling, you should clean the top needle in the machine, as the grinds can get up into it and clog it.  When the machine is open (like youre putting the k-cup in,) youll see the needle on top that pierces the top of the k-cup or reusable filter.  There is a rubber washer ring arond it.  Take that washer off, and with either a needle or an unfolded paperclip, stick it up into each of the 3 grooves you see on that pin.  I had to do that bc I used the hot chocolate k-cups and it clogged, but it forced water to backflow into the reservoir tank.

Also, try exchanging it.  You are taking teh original black piece out before you put the mesh filter in, right?  I had a friend do that wrong.  she just stuck teh mesh filter into where the K-cup goes or something weird

let me know if getting another one solved the problem.

We just got our Keurig and we are going through a lot of K cups a day. It would be great to have the reusable filter
