Question about Miele CVA610

1 Answer

Steamer backed up water pours out under machine

I bought a house with a CVA610.  After cleaning out the gunked up steamer assembly, I get a little steam, but water comes pouring out from under the machine.  Is there a broken seal, or is the steam pipe just too clogged?  What should  do?

    I have the same problem and finally took the top off the machine. There are many ring seals inside connnecting all kinds of hoses. One of them was leaking but cannot seem to find a plce to order replacements and Miele is outrageous in pricing them ($30 for two little O rings etc) I would like to know a source for these

On the cva 610 and 615 the steamer valve gasket tends to wear. Causing the unit to leak. Your best bet it to remove the steamer valve, Looking at the knob stem there is a plastic pin you can press to remove the stem from the valve. Once removed there's a small o-ring on the stem. ( That's where it's leaking from ) replace the o-ring and the stem to be safe. Also take a look at the micro sw to make sure it doen't have any corrosion if so replace it. If not your on the road to recovery. Good luck

My coffee machine cva610 says descale expel air. It won't allow me to make any more coffee.


If you don't have a manual I hope this helps. You can make coffee without "Descale"ing it but it is recommended you don't go too long without doing it.

- Make sure that the filled water container is in the appliance.


- Turn the program selector to "On" with lighting and place a container under the hot water spout and another under the steam spout.


- Press the hot water button, turn the steam selector counterclockwise and dispense hot water until it flows in quiet, continuous streams.


- Press the hot water button again. Turn the steam selector clockwise to o, to turn off the water.

Not enough steam is produced to make good froth.


I have one too and what I do is: turn all 3 switches on and while I'm waiting for the "ready" light to come on I go ahead and pour the milk into my frothing pitcher and prep my espresso basket.
After the "ready" light comes on I install my espresso basket and turn the handle to the "left" so no liquid starts coming out.
Next, I take an empty coffee cup and hold it under the steam nozzle and start opening the steam valve until I get only steam instead of a stream of hot water. Once you have steam, close the valve, put your pitcher of milk under the steamer and froth as usual to around 150 degrees.

Miele CVA610 error reads expel air but when we do as manual suggests (run hot water & milk frother) no water comes out.


- Make sure that the filled water container is in the appliance.


- Turn the program selector to "On" with lighting and place a container under the hot water spout and another

under the steam spout.


- Press the hot water button, turn the steam selector counterclockwise and dispense hot water until it flows in

quiet, continuous streams.


- Press the hot water button again.

Turn the steam selector clockwise to o, to turn off the water.


If this doesn't do it for you, you are doing it wrong!

No steam pressure with little to no water/steam


Remove the steam wand and inside you will find a small teflon like tube at the top, throw that away and run water through the wand to make sure it is clear then re-assemble in machine and test.

Francis francis x1, blocked steamer


Pour in a solution of 50% distilled white vinegar and 50 % water. Set the steam wand knob to a water setting, and run the solution through there. I would suggest letting a small amount of the vinegar/water solution drip out, then cut the machine off for about 20 minutes - allowing the vinegar to thoroughly soak and decalcify the insides. After 20 minutes, let the remaining vinegar/water pour through.

Steam frother


1. Pour in vinegar instead of water. 2. Bring vinegar to a boil but do not run it through the machine. 3. Turn off machine for the machine for an hour. 4. Remove sheath from the steamer. 5. Place tip of steamer into large mug of cold water. 6. Turn espresso machine on and allow vinegar to run through steamer.
Optional: Before starting the process, unbend a paperclip or metal hook (for hanging holiday ornaments) and use it to clear the steamer orifice.
It may take the vinegar a little while to dissolve and loosen the blockage. If the process does not work the first time time, try again later and allow the warm vinegar to sit in the machine longer.
