Question about Miele CVA610

1 Answer

Locked into warming up mode

The espresomachine worked for 2 years without any problem, then did not start up anymore. The display shows warming-up with 3-5 dots, but does not go into brew mode. Miele service replaced heater/temp control module, and asked $800 for this ( waived finally). Claimed that the problem was caused by power transformer. This transformer was necessary, because it was 220 V demo model. Capacity of trafo is 4000W. How can this be the cause if the unit worked for almost 2 years?
Anyway after the repair it worked for 2 months and then stopped. Occasionally it goes into select product mode after power-up and then produces a luke warm cup.
Can it be repaired at reasonable cost or is it ready for landfill ?.

Saeco Royal Professional is stuck on "Ventilate"

There are possibly 2 things that it could be.
1. Check that the tip of the wand is not plugged.
2. Your solenoid valve that controls the water is bad or stuck. That means a trip to the service center.

Coffee pot turns stops brewing in the middle of the cycle

If this is not an electrical problem, try the following:

Try running a cup of WHITE vinegar (of course without the coffee), this will clear out anything on the path.

Once you do this, run 5 cups of plain water (again without coffee) twice to clear out any vinegar flavor from the path.

Err 2 message

The ERR 2 code indicates there is a problem with the internal computer, specifically pertaining to the warming plate. I would advise you to call Kitchenaid Customer Service to see what options are available. They do not offer repair on the units, as it is not cost effective for the company or the consumer to have it repaired.

Their toll-free phone number is 1-800-541-6390.

Coffee pot does not work at all model KCM511ER-1 THE DISPLAY shows Err2

An ERR 2 may be cleared by a simple reset of the coffee maker. This means unplugging the unit and plugging it back in. When powered back on, select a brew function to see if the error reappears.

If it does, ERR 2 indicates an internal error with the computer of the warming plate. This may be covered under Kitchenaid's 1 Year Hassle Free Warranty. I would advise you to call Kitchenaid Customer Service to see what options are available to you. Repair is not recommended, as it is not cost effective for the company or the consumer.

Saeco Primea Cappuccino Ring--stuck on "boiler filling" mode!

Hello, I had the same problem, therefore the machine has gone to a repair centre. The problem is caused by a mechanical switch in the machine, that doesn't work properly. To repair it you've to open the machine completely, but that’s not easy. Because there is nothing broken you’ll should have warranty because it is a production failure. The solution in my case was to heat up the switch and push it a little together so that the contact works properly. It is the switch that you hear when you turn on the machine.

Flashing red light

Just found the answer!

The type 453 coffee maker offers a carafe ‘pre-warm’ function.
This feature will heat the carafe for 5-10 minutes before the brewing process begins and is indicated by a flashing red light.
To toggle this feature, push the top-right button in the control panel until the display reads "off".

Goes into 'Self Test' after grinding the beans or even using the pre-ground mode

You have a power control board(PCB) problem. The machine is restarting while trying to make coffee which would be like you turning the power off then on again. The only way to correct this would be to change the board.

If you would like to order the board you can do so by contacting us at
