Brew Unit Out of Alignment Miele CVA 4085

Somehow, during cleaning, the female spindle on the brew unit has shifted so that it is no longer in alignment with the male spindle at the back of the machine. Is there a way to manually adjust either without taking the machine apart?

Turn your machine off. Close the door. Depress <clear>, holding it down, press <on/off> then let go of both. Then press <clear> 3 times. On 3rd time, hold it until Service menu appears. Select <brew unit> then press left arrow to turn from <off> to <on>. Then press right arrow by <select> This will turn your brew unit drive to the correct position and you should be able to get your brew unit in/out and your waste container back in. Make sure to turn your machine off/on again to get out of Service Menu. I have a picture of how the wire needs to be inserted to get that back on. It's definitely not intuitive, but send another note with your email address and I can send the pics.

SOURCE: I have a cva coffee machine it seems like the brew

F73 is a bad brew unit. The cva 4070,4075,4060, and 4066 are designed to use espresso beans.
If you use an oily bean such as Starbuck's french roast, it will clog the filter in the top of the brew unit. If you catch it in time, you can just replace the brew unit. If you run the machine with a clogged filter long enough, you have to replace the brew unit and gearbox together.
Sometimes if you work with the tech support department, they will send you a brew unit to install yourself. If you live in an area that has Miele factory support, you may just want to get a service call. It is very important to rinse the brew unit every 24 hours, and to use the cleaning tablets in the trap door( not the descaling tablets) if not, the coffee oils build up and turn into a tar that will clog the brew unit. They run about 300 dollars so they are worth doing the maintenence on.

SOURCE: Miele cva615 says "brew unit

Hi, possible that there is WEARING OFF of the bushes in the shaft of the grinder jar section or to the motor section. If you can try to hold the spindle and move , there must not be any play of the shaft nor it must be TOO free. If so the bushes must be reset with the same type. Also check if the motor bush/bearings are faulty or a drop of light grease or oil might give a temporary relief.

Or else you have to get a another one....

Hi molly girl.
You can try to clean your Brewunit. Most of the times when that message appears, it means the brewunit is dirty

You can have more info in the manual if you dont have it:

How to remove the back wall behind brew unit on miele cva 615?


The Brew unit present switch is located on the brew unit drive. On the 615 model not an easy feat - the top and back have to be removed as well as the electronics - the micro switch has an extension arm on it the can fall off if the brew unit hits it the wrong way - I am guessing that is what may of happened here

Have you clean the brew unit with the cleaning tablets? This dissolves and rids the brew unit of the oils which in turn build up and clog the brew unit - the result being watery pucks and less product being disbursed.

I have a Miele Coffee System CVA 4075. Kept getting fault 73 message. Long story short, the Brew unit is out of place. I somehow need to get it back into the basic position. When I turn it on now it reads...


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 and won't let you do anything else. I my case it says Cleaning and 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:
Open the door and switch off the power with the rocker switch on the top left.Wait at least 5 seconds.
Switch the rocker on then VERY QUICKLY close the door and hold the clear button for 5 seconds.
With your other finger touch the ON button then pull both fingers away at the same time.
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.
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).
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.

I have a three month old Miele CVA 4066. I have recently cleaned the unit twice (using little tablets in coffee grinder), as well as descled. The coffee, expresso, etc. is barely dripping out of the unit. ...


your brew unit is clogged. It will need to be removed and cleaned every 24 hours as per the owners manual. There is a yellow laminated card in the box with the accessories that shows step by step how to perform the 24 hour maintenance. To prolong the life of the brew unit, make sure the coffee grind size lever is in the middle or to the right of center, rather than the left (fine) side. Also, you only want to use dry beans, preferably espresso beans. Oily beans like french roast will clog that brew unit up very quickly.
