Why does my water container fill up even though my machine is plumbed in?

This looks like a fault. The plastic tank has two reed switches that measure 'tank empty' and 'tank half full'. When the tank is empty the inlet solenoids (there are 2 for safety) open and water enters the tank but not so much to fill the tank to the half way level. In normal operation the level water in the tank will drop and then more water is allowed in. In your case it appears the 'half full' reed switch is being activated because the solenoids are not closing off properly and water is leaking in and filling the tank. If you do not empty it then eventually it will fill and leak into the leak. The problem can be caused by either low water pressure (below 145 psi) or sticky solenoid. If is the solenoid then the Miele solution will be to replace both solenoids. Alternately you may be able to remove, take apart and clean. Also check that you have a mesh filter at connection to tap. Also you can temporarily fix the problem by turning off the water at the tap and re-programming machine to 'turn off' the plumed water line. regards

No Steam, No Water? Quick Fix

All of a sudden I had no steam and no water.

I could hear the pump chugging and trying hard, but nothing came out of the nozzle.

First, check to see if the nozzle is blocked. If it's not, try turning on the tap (faucet) and PUSH IT IN towards the machine.

If you now get steam and water, there is a quick fix.

Switch off the mains, unplug the coffee machine and take all normal precautions not to electrocute yourself.

There is a small cam on the (Part 9161205 - Faucet rod stem) which pulls the tap IN as it is opened and OUT as it is closed.

1] Remove the coffee container - there are two phillips screws only, and it lifts off.

2] Remove the top casing. There are two phillips screws either side at the front top, hidden by the door, one star head screw under the water tank, and one normal phillips screw under the water tank in a deep channel.

3] Take a look at the small cam on (Part 9161205 - Faucet rod stem) and see if it moves in and out as you turn the water/steam tap on and off. If it doesn't the plastic has sheared off. If it does move in and out - this is not the fix for you!

4] If it does NOT move in and out as you turn the water/steam tap on and off, find a small self-tapping screw and screw through the angled cam hole into the faucet rod stem. Pop the top casing and the coffee container back on and your machine is now fixed!

My Jura Capresso E 8 is stuck in open tap filling system. I open tap it says filling system, it says close tap, when I close the tap it goes back into open tap. Float valve looks fine, water is moving

Open the tap with frother spout off. This happened to mine and I took the frother tip off and opened tap with tip off. Water filled and I closed tap...Machine returned "Ready". I heated water in microwave for three minutes- placed frother tip in hot water and all kinds of gunk came out. Lesson learned- Do a thorough cleaning of frother by immersing it in very hot water at least once monthly- even if you don't use it

The signal low wash is turned on

The low wash indicator is telling you that the washer solvent is low and some needs to be added. If the solvent is adequate in the reservoir tank then the sensor in the tank may be faulty.

My washing machine is WA80F# water from the inlet pours so slow even there is high pressure of water from the faucets what to check please

Check the actual inlet valve, it may not be opening all the way. Sometimes a good sharp whack, will fix it. Other times it must be stripped down and soaked in a solvent for a bit.

How to clean a fuel tank after years of storage

Remove the gas valve assembly. Get a cupful of 1/2" nuts from the hardware store and put them in through the gas cap. Add 1/4 tank of kerosene or other "slow to burn" solvent. Put the cap back on the shake the metal nuts all around inside the tank. The nuts will abrade the rust and gunk so you can get the tank nice and clean. I suggest you then use a liquid tank liner. Google kreem products as a source. Now the tank will never rust again and you will get clean gas.

Could you take a moment and rate my answer? Thanks!

I can't get past the 'open tap'/'close tap prompts on my Impressa

I had this problem with my Ena 3. The difference was that water was actually passing through the nozzle, but when I turned the dial back to the coffee symbol it would just tell me to open the tap again.

The solution was simple thanks to bergend's post, although I'd never have thought of it independently. I emptied the water tank and filled it back up with luke warm water instead of the cold water I had been using. After the first "system filling" round, the machine continued with the setup program fine.

So, to others with this problem: don't use too cold water in the tank for the first setup, even though the manual tells you to. Luke warm works great.

When you place the clean water tank on the machine, there is a connection between the tank valve and the seal on the body of the unit. If you have been using the wrong solution, ie. lysol or pine sol, they contain elements that will cause the seals to absorb the solution and they will swell and the valve will not open to release the solution into the machine. If this is the case, you will have to replace the main seal on the machine and the small seal on the valve in the tank. I have seen this problem alot because it can be hard to find the proper solution that was designed for the machine.
Put cold water only in the tank and place it on the machine. As you are pushing it into place, look through the clear plastic of the tank and observe the valve. You should see it lift slightly and hear the "glug" of water flowing. You should also see bubbles rise up inside the tank. If this doesn' happen, then the seal and valve are probably compromised and will have to be replaced. Don't use any solutions or additives that contain petroleum distolates or solvent bases as these are the main culprits that will be absorbed and distort the seals.
