Question about Miele CVA615 Espresso Machine
Miele's parts are available direct through them only

When you froth milk you expect a high volume of steam to inject heat energy into the cold milk. If the steam heater is cold it takes a minute to heat up. If it is not used since yesterday the water lines need to pump until a stream of water can enter the steam heater coil. I recommend pre-heating the steamer before frothing each morning.
Turn on the steam dial and wait until water streams out steadily or stop after 30 seconds. Repeat until water is steaming. After a minute or 2 the steam should get loud and fast. Now you are ready to froth milk. The steam heater shuts itself off if not in use and it will need to be heated up again 30 minutes later.
If the pump is not thumping when you turn the dial it or the switch is bad, if the water or steam never runs out then the hoses need new seals. (Don't run the pump more than 30 seconds without water coming out, allow the pump to cool for 2 minutes before using again).
If the water runs out but it never steams you need a new heater coil.
All these parts need a service tech to replace them. Miele covers repairs parts warranty for 1 year and if they install it, a 90 day service warranty for any problems connected with that repair .
