Sometimes water might be leaking from the bottom of the Keurig K-Mini K15. Many people think that this is an inexpensive coffee maker, so this could be the case.

So, if you pour water into the water reservoir more than 10 oz by mistakenly then the excess will flow.
Additionally, this coffee maker is specially designed to catch this water retention if the water chamber overfilled then the excess water will flow into the drip tray. You should slide out the drip tray and empty into the sink. If water leaks are for any other reason than alternative measures should take.

You should power off the unit from the electrical outlet. Wipe the leaking water underneath it alongside the drip tray. Measure 6 oz water in measuring cup and pour it into the cold water reservoir. Without inserting any K-cup pod perform a brew only with this water. Observe very carefully whether there is any leakage water flowing.
