SOURCE: No Steam

Unit sounds like the steam valve and orings have failed.
This causes no steam and internal leakage.

SOURCE: very slow water output

Open door of machine & take Brew head out. You will see a cylinder shaped part which is black with an orange washer half-way down it. Look underneath this cylinder and you will see a steel disk,(which may look black) this is the filtre. Now look above the cylinder and you will see a turn knob, turn anti-clockwise untill the disk comes free. Hold the disk up to the light and you will see the minute perferations which are all clogged with coffee grounds, give this a thorough washing under running hot water ,( use the brush provided with your machine to push the grounds through. You will also need to blow through these holes very hard and often untill you can see that they are cleared. This should be done after about every 15 cups made. I got this info. from the Gaggia engineer and it works!! Good luck.

SOURCE: machine is stuck in rinse cycle and brewunit

Take the brew unit out again, and try to twist the rotational mechanism so that the little arrows in the front of the axis align. This should allow you to insert the unit.
On insertion, you might also need to push the little handle on the front of the brew unit to allow the coffee trough to fit.

HI Sorry, but you have 6 years of scale that has been broke loose and is now plugging your lines. You are going to have to take you machine apart and blow out all your lines and also the boilers with air pressure to clear the lines. Descaling is one of the most important things you can do for your machine. Your lucky that your machine went 6 years. Most don't.

Hi
It should take about 45 minutes to an hour to properly descale the machine. If it only took a couple of minutes you really didn't descale your machine. If you used the powder it has to disolve completly before descaling. The best way to descale is with the descaler in the tank. Turn on the machine and run about 8 ozs of water-descaler through the wand and then turn off the machine. Wait 10 minutes and repeatthe last procedure. Do this until the tank is empty. When done with the descaler, rinse out the tank and put fresh water in the tank and run the whole tank through the wand. Then fill the tank and your ready to go.

I have the Miele 4066. I ran the descaling program. When it was finished it read a message that it didn't run properly to run again. But it gets stuck on empty drip tray mode. I even unplugged it


Take out drip tray and inspect the 2 contacts at the rear. Clean these and surrounding area. Also inspect the contacts at the back of the tray slot to see if these are also dirty. Then re-try. Hopefully this will fix the problem. Regards

Tip

Bosch tassimo T65 - water draining in to drip tray possible cause and resolution


I had a problem on my Tassimo T65 where water was entering the bottom drip tray through the small hole at the rear. It seems many people have this problem but after researching on line there is little help although I found on this sit how to take the coffee maker apart and from that thread the possible cause for my own issue.
So if your machine seems to be leaking from the small drain hole to the rear of the drip tray try this before you think it is either in need of specialist repair by Bosch at a cost almost the same as a new machine or before you start to take it apart and have a look yourself.
CAUSE - The water is coming from the drain hole because the pressure valve at the top of the machine is blocked with calcium deposits through prolonged use without descaling sufficiently.
SOLUTION - Purchase a good quality coffee machine descaler. Sit the whole coffee machine in a tray or large oven tray so you can collect the overflowing descaler throughout the process, it's not economical to waste this solution. Remember to clean down and dry the coffee maker each time.
Use at least half strength descaler do not water it down more than 1:1
Follow the descaling process by inserting the yellow disc and holding the start button down for 3 seconds.
Repeat this process several times, recovering the fluid leaking in to the tray and cup or container. If you start to see small lumps being dispelled in to the cup try to remove these for further descaling.
After several cycles you should notice that the leaking or flow of water from the bottom drain hole becomes less until it stops. To force the dissolving scale out of the pressure valve try running the normal clean cycle but with the descaling solution, the flow is longer and will help flush the restriction.
After a number of descaling and clean cycles the leak or flow from the drain hole will have stopped, if not continue till it does.
Note: I ran cycles for about 2 hours with periods of rest to allow the solution to do its work.
Now the leak or flow has stopped clean out the reservoir and replace with clean water and run at least 4 clean and rinse cycles.
i hope this works for you and now enjoy your coffee.

Saeco energica is half way through descaling cycle but is getting stuck how do I reset


Thoroughly clean the drip tray before putting it back may help. If there is still coffee inside which is wet the sensor may see this as water which is still in the drip tray.

My cva 4066 will not make coffee, I descalled it, that function worked fine,all it does is make the grounds a little wet and the rest of the water goes in the drip tray. Can you help me?


Have you Cleaned the Brew unit? The descale Tablets are to clean and descale the internal plumbing - the cleaning tablets are to remove the oils from the brew unit. If clogged the water will not flow through , instead it will dump into the drip tray.

I have a Miele coffe maker and its stuck on empty the drip tray cycle....cannot recognize that the drip tray has been emptied. How can I get out of this mode.?


I just posted this solution in another model.

I have a Miele CVA 4085 built-in coffee maker which had a similar problem to this and other problems where it gets locked into a state where it demands you empty the drip tray even though it is empty. In my case it was at the end of a cleaning cycle and refused to go on. Cutting power and restarting always had it return to the same state: Cleaning, empty drip tray.

I cleaned the contacts on the drip tray and at the back using the nail file, still nothing. Then I found a post on how to get into the programming menu, which on the CVA 4085 is this:
  1. Open the door and switch off the power with the rocker switch on the top left.Wait at least 5 seconds.
  2. Switch the rocker on then VERY QUICKLY close the door and hold the clear button for 5 seconds.
  3. With your other finger touch the ON button then pull both fingers away at the same time.
  4. Do 5 rapid presses of the clear button but hold your finger down on the last press and keep holding it down until the programming menu comes up.
  5. Do not press the reset button that you see at the top of the menu (unless your German is quite good or you have access to Google Translate).
  6. Scroll down until you find the reset cleaning button and select it. Once you have confirmed you can then exit programming mode by powering off.
It took me quite a while to get to this point, but at least I can now recognize the German word for drip tray.

Sounds like you need to get into the programming mode menu and reset it.

I have a Miehl cva4070. My problem is twofold. 1. The unit seems to have lost its ability to recognize that the Drip Tray has been emptied. I have turned it off and back on, unplugged and restarted,...


take a long fingernail file that is a fine grit. hold it with a pair of needlenose pliers, and use it to clean the contacts in the back of the machine where the drip tray plugs in. You need to clean each contact top and bottom. you can tape the fingernail file to a ruler or pencil or whatever you need to so that you can reach the contacts. it is very tight as the opening is only an inch or so tall. dont go crazy with the file, just lightly touch each contact. also you can swap the two metal contacts on the drip tray. you will notice that they have little wear lines on them that are in different locations. if you swap them , they will be exposed to new surface. if that doesnt work, you may have an internal leak that is shorting the drip tray contacts from the back of the machine. If there is water back there, it is the same as the drip tray being full.

Hi, Franke Saphira. 'Empty Drip Tray' message doesn't shift when in descale mode - not in any other mode though, only when trying to descale. Any ideas? Cheers


If you keep the empty drip tray message, especially after making a drink or cleaning operation this points to a leak internally on to the drip tray contacts. or from the thermoblock leaking onto the wiring loom behind the front door panel. An engineer will be required to fix this as the correct seals will be needed. I have been a Franke Service Engineer for 15 Years.
