    Recycled everything per unit readout...Removed power for 1/2 hour, etc. No help as the unit returns to CLEANING readout when on/off is pushed. I plan to leave unit unplugged over night!

The above solution will not work when the machine is stuck on the cleaning cycle. You can plug and unplug it all you like but it will still come back and be stuck on "Cleaning" when you turn it on. I called Miele service and was guided through the steps to access program mode in order to cancel the mode. This is how you do it:
First turn it off using the switch inside the machine (top left with door open)
Note, the four following steps have to be completed within 10 seconds:1 Press the Clear button and hold2 Then press the On/Off button3 Release both buttons at the same time4 Press the clear button 5 times in a row
This gets you into Programming Mode (may take a second or two to pop up if you complete the above in less than 10 seconds
Keep pressing the "More" button (bottom right) until you get to the last page where it will give you the option of reseting the three cleaning modes. Just push the right one ("Cleaning" for e.g.)
That will do it but if you have an underlying fault that interferes with Cleaning then the same problem will happen again when the unit needs cleaning. You should get a service call to address this.

    Just make sure you hold the clear button down until the program starts...wasn't clear in the instructions.

I called Miele hot line & we fixed the problem... 800-999-1360

When you start the cleaning cycle, Don't stop same by pulling the plug! Turn the unit off from inside wait 5+ seconds & turn back on and the cleaning cycle should restart... If you do not use a cleaning TAB..Open & shut the LOOSE coffee Door under the drawer (Top Left) and the cycle will continue.

The grinder is not working

Likely causes are grinder has burnt out or temperature cut-out for Grinder has blown. Either can be replaced as a spare from Miele.

This is normal behavior for a Miele machine, it is a safety feature. You have to clean it.
Use the cleaning tabs you have that came with your machine, if you don't have anymore, get them here
Clean the machine normally by opening the machine up, removing the storage tray, and dropping the tablet down the ground coffee shoot and letting the machine lead you through the cleaning.
Hope this helps.

The ew 3000 iem (brand new) is stuck on mute. Tried everything to no avail. Ideas????? Please Help!!!???!!!!

To get your transmitter out of mute press the standby button and hold it briefly until "RF Mute Off" appears. Your display should change from red to orange and the transition icon will also be displayed again. This indicates your transmitter is transmitting.

I have two types of descalling tablets in my package, 2 large and 10 small, where do I add them to my Miele coffee system CVA4070, and how many

The large ones are your descaling tablets. they go in your water container when the machine tells you to put them in there. Your small tablets are brew unit cleaning tablets. they go in to the flap door under the ground coffee storage container in the top left of the machine. One cleaning tablet at a time when it tells to to start cleaning. Two descaling tablets at a time during descaling.

My Nuvi 200W stuck in boot process

This most likely means that a part of the software on your gps system is corrupted and unreadable. You will need to update it/re-install the software on it. To do that, you can download this software which will automatically search for the latest updates:

I'm looking for a manual for my KXT7735 phone I

The second part is easy, try pressing either * or TRANSFER until the display reads what you want. It has 3 displays. The phone instructions are particular to the phone system the phone is connected to. Try to find the Panasonic system number (the box where all the wires go) and comment back.
