How about with the basket and portafilter in place, but no coffee in the basket? Does the water flow reasonably when you turn on the pump?

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.

We have a new coffee house with new machines. Our rancilio sometimes has water coming out all around the basket when trying to pull a shot. What is causing this?


You need to change the group head gasket. They only last about 1 year and then should be changed. Get 2 because they usually fail on Friday and you have a party on Saturday.
The gaskets get hard from the heat and don’t form to the filter any more so they leak.
When you get the new gasket.
Empty everything out of the machine (water tank, drip tray, etc.) Turn the machine upside down on a towel. This way you can see what your are doing.
Remove the filter screen and diffuser from the brew head. The black O-ring is your gasket. Carefully pry it out. Clean the opening good before you install the new gasket. Insert the gasket with the beveled side down (on the inside edge of the O-ring is the bevel). Once you have the gasket in place, use the portafilter to finish seating the gasket.

I would guess that you normally keep the portafilter in the machine? If so, this compresses the gasket and leads to premature over compression and leakage. Unless you can order a new gasket, your out of luck.

I've learned a ton on this unit reading reviews. I discovered that this issue and failure to descale will kill a good machine faster than anything.

I have a brand new Via that never worked right out of the box. Could barely get any espresso to come through the portafilter. Got a new portafilter and the espresso now flies out of the machine beautifully. Seems they are shipping2_bing.gif units with faulty portafilter. Bad news is a new portafilter is like $65. See if you can get them to give you a new one. I had the same issue as you, very little espessso comes out.

Broken portafilter!


I had a brand new Via Venezia that I could barely get to make espesso, nothing or very little came out. Got a new portafilter and now it work beautifully, espesso flies out of the thing wonderfully. Bad news is a new portafilter is like $65. I can't believe they are shipping these with bad portafilters, but they are.

1) The coffee you are using may not be ground finely enough to provide a proper extraction time, resulting in water rushing through the ground coffee much too quickly. Think of it like water running through a handful of pebbles as opposed to a handful of sand. You want "sandier" coffee.

2) Your gasket (the rubber part that seals the portafilter to the group head) may be worn/damaged and is leaking water when you are brewing. Attempt to contact FF! or Saeco to secure a replacement gasket. When you are not using the machine, don't tighten the portafilter all the way in to the head, either leave it completely disengaged or only loosely attached. This saves wear on the gasket.

3) Your brew water may be too hot. Purge your boiler right before brewing by running water into a bowl without the portafilter locked in. After a few seconds the superheated water will be run out and you're ready to brew.
