Re: turn on

Check the power at the outlet make sure you have 208 or 240, if you don't then thats your problem. The CVA 615 will not turn on with 120V. If you have proper power requirements and it still does not turn on it could be the door close switch isn't making contact all the way. If it's still not working call MIELE at 1800-843-7231

When plugged in - power to outlet works on other appliances - when I turn the "on button" on NOTHING happens

Gaggia Classic won't turn on, no light at power switch

I would suspect rough handling of your suitcase, leading to some loose or broken connections inside. I recommend opening it up and looking for obvious disconnections. If you don't see any, the next step will be to use a tool like an electrical continuity tester (which can also test for a blown fuse). There is a lot of information about Gaggia Classic repair online -- just search for "Gaggia Classic repair".

Water is dispensing slowly

Hi there, I just had the same problem having bought a machine on ebay. Dismantle the brewing head, and take out the nut with the hole in the middle (the one with the spring behind it). then stick something small and pointy into the hole- I think inadequately dissolved limescale clumps at this point, and blocks it. Mine certainly had a thick plug of gunk blocking it at that point.
Let me know if it works!

When in use it blows our fuse

The manufacturer of this product does not provide electrical ratings or requirements in the manual.It looks to be a small commercial type, but seems to available for purchase at many home appliance / small electrics departments in mainstream stores. Check the electrical rating of the machine.. it should be on a tag or label near the cord. If the machine is rated 1440 watts or less, it can be connected to a 15 amp circuit. If more than 1440 but less than 1920, it will require a 20 amp circuit.

If it has a standard plug, it should work in a standard kitchen counter outlet. A standard kitchen counter outlet in North America is rated for 120 volts / 20 amps. I would suspect that this appliance requires a fairly large amount of power for a short period of time, so it may be similar to a toaster or coffeemaker. That means it would need at least 12 amps itself. If you are trying to use this machine while another appliance is on / running on the same circuit - it is very likely that the fuse or circuit breaker would open. When the fuse does open - it should be replaced with a fuse of the same amp rating - never increased. If there are other devices that shut off because of the fuse opening when using this machine, disconnect them at the outlets. Shut off lights that go out, too.

Replace the fuse and try to use the machine. If it works, your problem is that there is too much on at the same time. You'll need to find a different circuit to plug the machine into that has little other load when the machine is in use, or rearrange the other devices so that this machine can be plugged in where you want it. The last resort would be to call an electrician to either add a new circuit or two or, split up the existing circuits so that they will have more capacity. If it doesn't work, you'll need to test some more by locating a circuit that has little or no load on it already - a circuit with only one plug on it is ideal, but can be hard to find. Once you're sure that everything on the circuit is unplugged / shut off, try again. If it still fails - it's likely that something is wrong with the machine.

I hope this helps and good luck!

My Spidem does not turn on.


plug the machine to another power outlet. If it still doesn't power on, check the power cord and make sure it is not melted in anyway. Also, check the head of the plug if it is a 3-pin-plug like the one the below image to check if the plug head is not melted and check the fuse inside the plug.

If the above seems not to be the problem, then it means your machine is having a power problem.

So if it does not power up, then it means its having a power problem. it might have worked fine in the past, but that's electronics for you. Power surge, irregular power supply, excess power supply, etc can affect the unit thereby not making it to power on.

This unit must have a power supply board in it where power enters from the mains. A capacitor, fuse, diode, etc may have been defective on the power board and maybe that's why its not making the unit turn on. There might also be some disconnection or something, inside the unit which is not making it to power on.

To actually find out what's wrong, you need to disassemble the unit with a screw driver and check what's wrong. You will be needing a meter in order to test the components on the power board, once you detect any bad component, you can make necessary replacement at any electronics accessories store withing our vicinity. This is the only way by which you can detect the problem.

Of course, testing the power board with a meter will require someone that has the ability. So it you can't, then you might be needing the help of a repairman or you can call a friend that has the ability to help you out.

I wish you the best of luck.

Pump won't come on, it has power to it, also the

The water from the relief valve means the boiler is very full, lets work on the water problem first then we will go to the pump.
IF the machine is not turned on does water flow out of the relief valve? ...if yes then check the manual fill to make sure it is in the off position. If no then we will need to check the level probe and or the inlet solenoid, because something is telling the machine it needs water.
For the pump is there any sound from it when you press the brew button? ....If yes then it might be blocked and you will have to remove the ring collar from the brass head, to remove pump from motor then check to see if pump head rotates, note direction on front of pump head. If no then you might have lost a fuse or there is a loose connection at the main box.

It's that danged power outage. Creates havoc every time and I can't always figure out how I get it to heat back up. Unplugging, plugging in, starting with the steam valve open for no less than 10...

Hi Any time you turn on your machine, always open the steam knob and make sure that you have a full boiler by having water come out of the wand when you turn on the pump switch. Until you have water coming out your boiler is not full. If its not full maybe the heating element has nothing to heat. This is how heating elements get damaged. They will heat until they blow, then you will never have heat. Make sure that you have water in the boiler, please. If it still doesn't heat, your thermostat may have tripped or your thermal fuse might have blown, or your board is shot. Now if your talking about the GFCI in the wall, there is a reset button on the GFCI that controls the outlet your machine is plugged into, or should be. Make sure that you have power to your outlet.

Machine will not turn on.

Please don\'t take offense, but did you move to a plug that doesn\'t work? If the outlet is good and the machine quit working, for some reason it is not getting power. Could be something became disconnected during a move or a board went bad. Y

Power OK to base, but frother has no power

My frother was working several month without problems. I love that! Someday i try to turn it on - nothing. I opened the frother and found out the the thermal fuse was broken. The specification for that fuse is 108°C/5A 125V~. The fuse you found in the red wire - there is a transparen tube to protect the thermal fuse contacts.I replaced the fuse - it worked !
That means the frother was overheated. The fuse has done the job.
