Make sure there is no calcim built up in the water pipes ofyour machine. soewhere along the lines it gets a wrong reading.
you can run a few cups of vinegar in your coffee machine instead of water, then run a couple of cups of water to get rid of the smell of vinegar.
hope this works

Miele 4066 Water overflowing


Yes - I agree with the above - the water tank has two magnets a low level and high level - both should move freely in the tank and float with the water level - they determine when the water solenoid is turned off and on - if stuck - it will cause the tank to overflow. If both magnets are there and they move freely - then the reed switch in the case in more than likely faulty.

My miele coffee maker CVA 4070 dispensing tubes are clogged


I had this problem ... you need to remove the dispenser from the rear of the door. Then once removed clean in running water. Its a sealed unit but you can squirt high pressure water inside to dislodge the coffee sludge. When clean .. fill with water and make sure the 2 spouts drain evenly. regards

Why does my water container fill up even though my machine is plumbed in?


This looks like a fault. The plastic tank has two reed switches that measure 'tank empty' and 'tank half full'. When the tank is empty the inlet solenoids (there are 2 for safety) open and water enters the tank but not so much to fill the tank to the half way level. In normal operation the level water in the tank will drop and then more water is allowed in. In your case it appears the 'half full' reed switch is being activated because the solenoids are not closing off properly and water is leaking in and filling the tank. If you do not empty it then eventually it will fill and leak into the leak. The problem can be caused by either low water pressure (below 145 psi) or sticky solenoid. If is the solenoid then the Miele solution will be to replace both solenoids. Alternately you may be able to remove, take apart and clean. Also check that you have a mesh filter at connection to tap. Also you can temporarily fix the problem by turning off the water at the tap and re-programming machine to 'turn off' the plumed water line. regards

My Miele CVA 2660 built in is about 3 years old, the waste water fills up the drip tray in just one day, after one coffee fill. The water from the resivour "seems " to go straight to the drip...


Hi Robin,
I had this problem a year ago. Two things to check: 1. Does the water tank go all the way down so that the small notch at the back of the tank fits into the floor of the machine? 2. Any dirt at the water tank outlet?
Besides these two issues, I would say that it is very likely that the problem is that the valve of the water tank needs to be replaced. This will especially happen if the machine has been lefter without water in the tank for some time.
Good luck.

The machine will say Fill water tank. So, we will take the container out of the machine fill it to or just a little above the recommended line and then put it back into the machine. It will be full and it...


After filling the water tank, can you see if a grey plastic piece, in the back of the water tank, is floating?. If no, then that part needs to be replaced. If it does float, then the integrity of the water sensor, (located in the back of where the water tank is housed into), will need to be tested. Testing this sensor requires, tricking the coffee maker... that the door is closed. With Coffee Maker in the "ON" position, you will need to hold door switch in (located top right corner of unit, with door opened). As switched is held in, you will need to use a magnet and place it around the rear of where the water tank is housed into (Rear-left middle height area)... just around where the water tank float would be, if it were filled with water and inserted into the coffee maker. This sensor isn't visible, but is activated when a magnet is placed around it. If "FILL WATERTANK" message goes away, then replace plastic float or water tank itself.

Screen says 'Fill Watertank' when watertank is clearly full.


Sounds like the sensor that detects system water levels has failed.

If you can see it inside try cleaning it or ask Miele for some advice via their website

I get the message Fill Watertank on my Miele CVA 620 Built in automatic coffee maker but the water tank is full. I think there might be a problem with the float switch but am unsure how you correct it


The float switch is a proximity sensor. There's a float in the tank that triggers the notification when it leaves the proximity of the sensor, located on the right side of the tank cavity. Try cleaning everything and make sure the float is moving freely in the tank.
