Question about Miele CVA2660 Stainless Steel Coffee Maker

Miele Coffee Machine

Hi, when I bought my house I had a built in Miele coffee machine included in the purchase. It worked for about 2 months and then after that I recieved an error message in German which translated to something like Descale required. However I have tried everything and the machine does not allow me to descale; when I turn the machine on the error message shows and nothing else happens. Is this a problem youv'e come accross before, I'm guessing it's like a car if you don't get it serviced after 6 months a red light comes on and won't turn off until you've paid $$$ to service it :-)

Buy descaling tablets from Miele (online shop) and then run the descaling program which can be found in the maintenance menu (the icon that looks like a shower spray). Until it is descaled, it will not dispense any beverages.

I have a built in Miele Nespresso coffee machine that shuts down (and trips the fuse board in the house) just as it has dispensed coffee. Anyone any idea what is causing this? Thanks

some liquid is leaking into the electronics or there is a motor gone
or some other leakage to earth of electricity
as i say can be liquid or a motor or a heating element
i think your model heats the milk so i presume some element has failed
its a job for the local approved service or see where you bought it

I have a miele coffee maker and it says "fill water tank" even when it is full. how do i solve this problem?

make sure there is no calcim built up in the water pipes ofyour machine. soewhere along the lines it gets a wrong reading.
you can run a few cups of vinegar in your coffee machine instead of water, then run a couple of cups of water to get rid of the smell of vinegar.
hope this works

Hi, I have a Miele 4070 that I bought 3 months ago. It made great coffee for the first two months and then the coffee suddenly became weaker, and thinner and has less body. I have not changed beans, and...

If you have adjustments for your bean hopper, 1 should have a + and - on it. Move that adjustment to the + but then back it up 1 click. Then go to the grind adjustment and move it down to a smaller #, but only when it is grinding. When you get the grind adjusted you should have grinds that look like coarse granulated sugar.
If you have taken the brew head apart you may have put it together wrong.
