More then likely there is nothing wrong with the water seal but simply the tank was not placed properly over the seal and water was bypassed to the reservoir. If a significant amount of water sits in the reservoir the "Water System Fault" trouble will appear and stop operation. The easiest way to remove the water from the reservoir is with an inexpensive ($5) siphon tool available at any auto parts store. Once the water has been removed and you can operate the machine and it goes through the "Warming" sequence you will receive a "Air in water System" alert. Follow the simple directions in the manual to correct this trouble and your system is back to normal. I have heard people have been charged by technicians up to $600 to fix this trouble and told the seal had to be replaced. Just take care when placing a full water tank back into place and enjoy : )

From you description it seems that you have a scale problem. It might that the pump it working by the sound you hear but the scale have make it either dificult to pump out the water from tank since the piping have been narrow.
So first you should perfom descaling with a descaling solution and repeat this a couple of times one every other day. If the scale biuld up is not heavy then this will solve you problem and you have to perform de-scaling every 20-30 days to maintain it clean.
If descaling have not help then you need to desasemble the machine and clean the pump and pipping manualy from scale. This procedure is might sound easy but you should be carefull not to damage any important parts like pump, boiler.

Hi tombannigan,

This can be caused by one of three things:

1) There is water in drip tray under the unit
Remedy: Open the unit and inspect the internal pipes for leakages.

2) The Tank lid is fitted incorrectly
Remedy: Ensure the lid is placed on the tank such that the lug is at the front of the tank by the handle as below image:

3) The water tank valve is not correctly connected with the unit.
Remedy: Some model have shorter stubs, so you need to file down the stub (burr) on the water tank by approx. 1 mm.

I really hope this helps

Kind Regards

Not enough water comes out when making coffee on Miele Cva 615


Your nozzles could be clogged or the percolator itself is clogged. Try to stick a toothpick into the nozzles to clear up any blockages, then perform a descale on the system using 2 large tablets. Make sure the tablets dissolve completely, if not you risk the chance of clogging the whole system.

Where can I buy a Miele CVA 615 Expresso Watertank?


Hi,

The only Miele spare parts are direct from Miele or through a Miele service agent. Have a look on the Miele website for your nearest Miele branch or service agent in your country.
I work for Miele and they only sell parts this way. if you call the Miele spare parts number off the website and tell them you have a cva615 they will be able to mail one to you.
Hope this helps.
