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.

SOURCE: No coffee, water going to the drip tray

OK, so this is a problem with your brew unit. The unit is not cycling correctly to tell the water to come through.

We had another problem like this just this week.

The wat we fixed it was 1) Give the Brew Unit a really good clean. 2)Make sure the Brew Unit can complete a cycle - manually rotate the brew unit components through a cycle 3) Lubricate the Brew Units moving parts if necessary using some Saeco or Other Food Grade Lubricant

Then try watch a complete coffee cycle by leaving the side door of your machine open, and tricking the micro switches into thinking the door is closed by engaging them with some card or something similar.

Let us know if this does not resolve your issue.

SOURCE: All water directed to Frother/ Water nozzle on Impressa C%

The Multivalve seems to be stuck. When you start up the machine you should hear the multivalve turning 2 times, if it`s silent, the valve is defective. This valve is important to guide the water in the right direction. Contact your servicedealer and let them have a look. There`s also a small chance that the electronic board are sending wrong or no signals to the valve

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.

Beans grind and are wet but coffee doesn't come out... it goes through the cycle and spits out a little. When cycle is complete, the water light comes on, but after priming the same thing occurs.


This tells me that either the grind is too fine and or the brew unit screen, and discharge tube needs to be cleaned. Try this first press the button for making a espresso using the manual function, do not add coffee through the door then press the brew button. If water flows freely then the grind is too fine, if you get the water prime error then the screen under the red o-ring on the brew unit needs to be cleaned.

Descaling process counts down on the displat but no solution is running through the unit and thr counter stops on 1 min remaining


This is normal behavior, your machine is fine.
For example, the machine says "5 minutes remaining" and then it goes 5:00, 4:59, 4:58....etc all the way down to 4:01.Then it changes to "4 minutes remaining". Which is 4:00, 3:59, 3:58, etc.
So at "1 minute remaining" the machine is really at 1:00, then 0:59, then 0:58 and all the way down to 0:01.So, after the "1 minute remaining" goes away, the machine is actually done cleaning itself.

The machine says to descale _ How do I do that???!!


THIS INSTRUCTIONS ARE FOR THE MIELE CVA 615,

The coffee system must be descaled regularly. The time period depends on
the water hardness set. The appliance will display a reminder message and
will eventually lock if not descaled. The message window will first display:
"DESCALE AFTER COFFEES: 100".
This message will appear until the appliance is descaled or locks. When
the count is down to zero, the appliance will lock and the message
window displays: The appliance can only be used again
once descaling has been performed. Let the machine cool before
descaling. Remove the sleeve of the steam nozzle to avoid damage from
the descaling agent. Only use the enclosed descaling tablets for descaling.
The descaling tablets are specially designed for descaling this coffee
system. Other agents may damage the machine and affect the taste of
the coffee and hot water. The descaling tablets can be purchased
from Miele.
To prevent damage to the exterior of the machine wipe up any descaling
solution spills immediately! Add 2 liters of water to the water tank. Dissolve two of the enclosed
descaling tablets in the water.
^ Close the water tank and insert into position.
^ Close the door. The descaling will take place in the
automatic descaling program.
Automatic descaling
^ Turn the program selector
counterclockwise to the "Program
mode" position.Press e, to select "Descaling" with the asterisk. Press ENTER.

I have a cva coffee machine it seems like the brew unit is jamed it makes a buzzing noise like it is descaling itself , I have cleaned it and checked the shoot for alignment it makwes the noise and then...


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.

Water is not filtering through grounds


The grind on the coffee is too fine, try making it a little coarser.
