SOURCE: miele coffee system CVA 2660 is showing fault #10

F10 is a water intake fault. The are several possibilities: the pump may be defective, a piece of lime scale may have blocked a pipe, the water tank might be faulty. Most likely is the pump.

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.

Hi Robin,
I had this problem a year ago. Two things to check: 1. Does the water tank go all the way down so that the small notch at the back of the tank fits into the floor of the machine? 2. Any dirt at the water tank outlet?
Besides these two issues, I would say that it is very likely that the problem is that the valve of the water tank needs to be replaced. This will especially happen if the machine has been lefter without water in the tank for some time.
Good luck.

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

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.

Drip tray error


Joe -
Try removing the tray and drying the contacts on the back of the tray with a towel. Once dry take a pencil eraser to them and clean them throughly.
Put tray back in and test.

Hope this helps

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.

Cva 4070 drip tray issue


Miele CVA 4066 -Empty drip tray warning would not go off even after draining the drip tray, cleaning contacts, and resetting power. Water was coming out from under the empty tray.
I pulled unit out and removed sheet metal in rear around water inlet. when I attached water line and power cord & turned on power, I could see water dripping out of one of the 2 solonoids on the water inlet valve. $168.00 from Miele and no expensive service call.

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.
