Make sure you are trying to remove the infuser when the machine is turned off. you can damage the unit if trying to remove the infuser while the machine is on (and you won't be able to get it out).

Waste unit is stuck and I can not remove it


The standard instructions are ... remove the waste container, water container & ground coffee container. On the front of the Brew Unit is a vertical black lever with a grey press button at bottom. Press this button and turn the lever clockwise. Then press the release catch that holds the brew unit as base and pull the brew unit. If Brew Unit is still stuck then its likely that the Unit State is not in the 'home position' and if this has occurred then its likely that that an error code would be showing. Regards

This has happened to me many times. Just turn off the main power, turn it back on open the door and close it so the brew unit repositions itself. The unit should come out easily now.

When the machine is switched on it makes a bang and switches off


If you cannot remove the brew unit then it is in a working position due to the machine being turned off at the wall. Don't try to force it! It needs to be moved to park position before it comes out.

Put it all back together, fill the tank and unplug the machine. Wait a moment then plug it back in. You should hear the transmission moving the brew unit into park as the display reads "Self-Diagnosis". It will then turn off.

Open the door, remove the tray and try the brew unit again.

If you did not hear the transmission move it could be jammed. If the brew unit still does not come out the interlock could be broken.

Transmission
If the transmission is getting stuck there may be obstructions, the lead screw may be worn or the limit switches could be faulty. If cleaning and grease on the screw/bearings don't help then replacement is a big pricy job only for confident hands. Approach with caution.

Brew Unit
The transmission can wear out prematurely and get stuck due to the brew unit becoming stiff. The piston in the brew unit should move smoothly and fairly easily. Keep the brew unit in good service by occasionally removing the piston to clean and re-grease the two big red o-rings using a food-safe grease. To pop the piston out the top, gently remove the plastic u-clip from the base of the shaft underneath, paying attention to which way up it goes for reassembly.

I have a Miele Coffee Machine (built-in) CVA 620-1. I got a message saying the brewing unit is blocked. I removed the waste unit, a procedure that has to be done before you can remove the brewing unit. ...


The brew unit has lose parts on left-hand-side, wiggle them up and down. Put the waste unit back, switch off the machine and then turn it on (pull the cord). It worked for me!!!

The machine is showing the brew unit is blocked but we have taken it out and cleaned it but this makes no difference.


Does the brew unit try to move at all? You can listen for the motor, or open the door panel and defeat the safety interlock while it's operating. (Be careful not to put a finger in there.) Then you can observe where the brew unit is getting stuck.

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.

My brew unit is stuck,


Try this.

You can enter a sort of diagnostic menu by pressing I believe the bypass doser and the medium coffee button together while you turn the machine on.

I forget which now, but one of the buttons will spin the brew unit one way, and another button will spin the brew unit the other way. The third button will activate the doser which makes a very LOUD clack noise.

You should be able to "wind" the brew unit manually this way in order to release it.

Good Luck.
