The main board has failed.
This occurs when the brew unit is too tight and not lubed up.
It damages drive components on the main board.

Sometimes the pucks do not fall into removable container. How do I fix this?


Make sure the swinging arm at the top of the brew unit moves easily. Check nothing on the brew unit is damaged. Servicing the brew unit might help.

Brew Unit

The transmission can wear out prematurely due to the brew unit becoming stiff. The piston in the brew unit should move smoothly and fairly easily. Keep the brew unit in good service by occasionally removing the piston to clean and re-grease the two big red o-rings using a food-safe grease. To pop the piston out the top, gently remove the plastic u-clip from the base of the shaft underneath, paying attention to which way up it goes for reassembly.

When the machine is switched on it makes a bang and switches off


If you cannot remove the brew unit then it is in a working position due to the machine being turned off at the wall. Don't try to force it! It needs to be moved to park position before it comes out.

Put it all back together, fill the tank and unplug the machine. Wait a moment then plug it back in. You should hear the transmission moving the brew unit into park as the display reads "Self-Diagnosis". It will then turn off.

Open the door, remove the tray and try the brew unit again.

If you did not hear the transmission move it could be jammed. If the brew unit still does not come out the interlock could be broken.

Transmission
If the transmission is getting stuck there may be obstructions, the lead screw may be worn or the limit switches could be faulty. If cleaning and grease on the screw/bearings don't help then replacement is a big pricy job only for confident hands. Approach with caution.

After removing brewer group for routine cleaning, i can't put it back. I had performed removal/insertion several times before, no problem. Arrows are aligned. Everything seems fine.


Hi. On the back of the brew unit( unit facing inwards when installing) I think, has a SPOUT which moves up into the injection pipe when its brewing coffee. Well on this SPOUT is a tab that locks the brew unit inposition when your installing it. If that tab has been moved while cleaning, it will not allow you to install the unit. The SPOUT with the tab on it, only moves oh so slightly to be out of position. Dazza REPAIRER

I have a Miele Coffee Machine (built-in) CVA 620-1. I got a message saying the brewing unit is blocked. I removed the waste unit, a procedure that has to be done before you can remove the brewing unit. ...


The brew unit has lose parts on left-hand-side, wiggle them up and down. Put the waste unit back, switch off the machine and then turn it on (pull the cord). It worked for me!!!

The machine is showing the brew unit is blocked but we have taken it out and cleaned it but this makes no difference.


Does the brew unit try to move at all? You can listen for the motor, or open the door panel and defeat the safety interlock while it's operating. (Be careful not to put a finger in there.) Then you can observe where the brew unit is getting stuck.

First clean the screen and tube on the brew unit, then lube the guides/gear grooves on the brew unit, also lube the o-ring(big red one). Then that should take care of it. You can also try backwashing/degreasing the brew unit if the machine has a preground chute.

Brew draw blocked


Ok if brew unit is displayed,the cause is the brew unit needs to be to cleaned of all old grease and coffee grounds.
Once cleaned you will need to regrease the big oring at the top of the brew unit,pretty much anywhere that moves needs to be lubed and the two smaller ones near the back of the dreg drawer.
In some cases a tight or siezed brew unit can damage the main control board.

Not making espresso from beans


Hi
Are your coffee grinds wet? If they are you have a clogged brew head. Remove the filter screen. Then remove the 2 screws that hold the outlet manifold to the brew head. There are 3 things under the manifold. O-ring, tapered spring and a crystal ball. Don't lose any of these items. Now to clean the brew head turn the brew unit over to where you can see where the brew screen was. You will see 2 holes, 1 large and 1 small. Take a paper clip and straighten it. Turn the brew unit upside down and insert the paperclip into the small hole. Push the paper clip through and remove the plug. I have seen them over 1/2" long. Reassemble the brew unit crystal ball first, small end of the spring on top of the crystal ball, place the o-ring over the spring and place the manifold on top making sure the outlet pipe is to the outside of the brew unit. Put the 2 screws back and your ready to go. Run a detergent for espresso machines like Cafiza through the brew unit every once in a while to keep it clean. It doesn't take a lot of detergent and use the pre-grind setting and a large cup selection but don't put any coffee in.
