Miele 2660 Steam Problem

When the steam lever is pushed down, steam appears to be coming out from around the side of the steam valve rather than through it. The appearance is lots of steam around the cappuccinatore but not much going through it.

Any thoughts? Do I need to call my technician?

Hi My Miele Coffee System seems to have developed a problem where when i use the steam wand and then close the wand off steam still spits out for about 30 seconds. Is this something i can fix myself or do...

I have the later model (CVA 4070) and the setup is lightly different. I have not worked on your model however I think there are only two parts that need to be checked. 1. Steam Valve (located in door and part of the steam knob). This is the likely cause and the problem is that it's either dirty and can be disassembled and cleaned or it has worn parts inside that need to replaced. 2. Steam Solenoid (inside unit before steam heater). These generally block and thus result in lower pressure but perhaps this one is having trouble closing. If your technically minded I would disassemble steam valve in door and clean and inspect all parts then re-assemble. If this does not fix problem then replace any suspect parts in the steam valve. ie o-rings. Testing 2 is more complex. You could do this via the Service Mode. Please Note ... DO NOT WORK on this machine unless power plug is removed from mains socket. Regards

Miele CVA4070 Steam flow through heater blocked

when you remove the cappucinotore, ( the piece that sticks down with the chrome tube and rubber pick up tube) from the door, do you still get no steam? that piece should be removed and cleaned daily. if you dont, I would imagine that it is completely blocked with old milk and would block off the steam.

I have a miele coffee maker but my steammer spout does not make steam. What can i do?

^ Take out the water tank and then insert it again. If still no or little water is dispensed the steam valve is clogged. ^ Open the appliance door. ^ Press the steam lever down and pull off the rubber sleeve. ^ Using the small end of the provided tool unscrew the top of the steam valve counterclockwise. ^ Clean the tip and screw it on again

1. Where is the lever located in the Saeco Incanto De Luxe located? 2. How do you decalcify the same same product? Thank you for your help

Hello Dolls36,

I understand you have two questions the lever question I assume you are taking about the steam lever. The second question is how do you descale the unit.

Lets answer the first question first. The steam lever is not a lever but a knob. The knob is located on the right side of the unit.
1. Put container under steam tube turn knob downward to open until you get steam
2. Once you get steam turn knob upward to close
3. Put item you want to steam under steam tube and open valve back up to steam

Now to answer the question about how to descale the Incanto De Leluxe. When you are ready to descale the machine follow these steps.
1. Hold down the "x" button for 5 seconds, the machine will tell you it is ready to descale
2. Remove the filter
3. Fill the water tank with your descaling solution
4. Insert a container under the steam tube and open the steam valve
5. The machine will display descaling and finished
6. Then it will prompt you to fill tank with clean water for rinsing.
7. Press the "x" button once tank is full
8. Place container under steam tub and turn knob to open steam tube
9. When finished press "x" button one more time to confirm done
10. Replace water filter and fill tank

I hope that I have answer you question as for question 1 I assumed that is what you were asking about. However, if that was not the right question please post back to this tread and I will be more than happy to answer the question that you specify.

Thank you for choosing

We have a 4 month old gaggia titanium. Today, the steam wand stopped working. (It makes coffee just fine.) I've cleaned the steam wand. When I turn the steam dial, very little steam comes out and I hear a...

Sounds like the steam wand is getting blocked some where either at the metal end or in the parnello wand if you machine has one at the end of the steam wand, if both of those are clean then try this push in on the steam knob if that works then tap rod assemble or steam valve needs to be replaced, make sure to ask about the stainless steel valve instead of the plastic one.

Lack of pressure from the steam wand used for frothing the milk.

Hello Juneyjune,
These coffee systems have a series of small rubber 'O' rings that tend to crack from condensation over time causing your low pressure problem.
The 'O' rings are connected to a heater that looks like a horse shoe mounted in back of the grinding unit.
I would recommend contacting Miele technical services. They can have a technician come out to replace the 'O' rings or you can order them from the technical services rep if you know someone that can replace them for you. Just be careful. These machines operate off of 220 volts and that is no fun to get shocked by. I have been many times with this machine

Good luck!!!

Can't get rid of ventilate message on titanium plus machine

Try this, after opening hot water valve, push the knob in when it asks for ventilate. If that works then contact your nearest gaggia distrubutor and ask for a new stainless steel steam valve assembly.

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.
