Question about Miele Coffee System

Miele CVA 5060 descaling is stuck

The program counts down the time, but it doesn't rinse or anyting. It will go down to one minute in this way, but it will stay there for over an hour and again no rinsing or anything is taking place.
Any thoughts?

Miele 5065 descale program will not complete


Sounds like you need to get into the programming mode menu and reset it. I have a Miele CVA 4085 built-in coffee maker which had a similar problem to this and other problems where it gets locked into a state where it demands you empty the drip tray even though it is empty. In my case it was at the end of a cleaning cycle and refused to go on. Cutting power and restarting always had it return to the same state: Cleaning, empty drip tray.

I cleaned the contacts on the drip tray and at the back using the nail file, still nothing. Then I found a post on how to get into the programming menu, which on the CVA 4085 is this:
  1. Open the door and switch off the power with the rocker switch on the top left.Wait at least 5 seconds.
  2. Switch the rocker on then VERY QUICKLY close the door and hold the clear button for 5 seconds.
  3. With your other finger touch the ON button then pull both fingers away at the same time.
  4. Do 5 rapid presses of the clear button but hold your finger down on the last press and keep holding it down until the programming menu comes up.
  5. Do not press the reset button that you see at the top of the menu (unless your German is quite good or you have access to Google Translate).
  6. Scroll down until you find the reset cleaning button and select it. Once you have confirmed you can then exit programming mode by powering off.
It took me quite a while to get to this point, but at least I can now recognize the German word for drip tray.

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.

Miele coffee system CVA 2660 is showing fault #10 while I descale and won't let me finish the program. I restart the program by turning off the system but I get the same fault message after about 20...


F10 is a water intake fault. The are several possibilities: the pump may be defective, a piece of lime scale may have blocked a pipe, the water tank might be faulty. Most likely is the pump.

I have the miele espresso machine wall unit. It counted down number of coffees until it would descale and now nothing. What do I need to do to descale?


http://www.miele.co.uk/customer/OperatingInstructions.aspx

Hi you need to run a descaling program. Which is basically putting descaling tablet in water supply(tank) and running program. See link above to selected correct model instruction book.

Where can I buy Miele coffee system instruction book?


You have to buy descaling tablets from miele.  You turn the knob to program mode and keep pushing the enter button until you get to descaling.  You put two descaling tablets into your water reservoir and replace into unit.  Put containers under the steam valve and the hot water wand. Press enter.  Turn steam valve al the way on.  Keep an eye on the containers.  The process takes about 30 to 40 minutes.  The message will appear 'Descaling finished." Turn steam selector to O and press enter.  Display will read "rinse machine, fill watertank.  Fill tank and return to machine.  Place empty containers beneath hot water dispenser and steam nozzle again and turn steam selector fully on. Allow water to run through system completely.  When process is finished, display will read "Rinsing Finished."  Turn steam selector to O and press enter  Program selector is on Program Mode and display will read Descaling, Timrt, unit is no descaled and ready to use.  Turn program selector to on.
