Question about Miele Coffee System

2 Answers

I have a Miele CVA620 after cleaning the blocked filters the EXPEL AIR sign has come up and refuses to disappear. I've pressed the hot water button numerous times and some water comes out but not the usual steady stream. I've attached the vacuum to the water outlet to no avail. Our local repair agent Cotters is not back in service after the break. Please advise me if there is anything that I can try. Thanks Ian Walker

    I've already tried the suggested solution many times to no avail.
    There is very little water from the hot water spout and the steamer/frother only works when the hot water button is pressed

    I contacted the technician who suggested descaling the apparatus-this has worked in the past-but failed this time. He came and collected the machine earlier today and if he solves the problem I will ask him if I can forward the solution to you all.

Generally, this means the unit isn't sensing that the water is moving (could be from a blockage or a faulty pump or air in the system). if Pressing the hot water button and filling up a cup to expel the air if there is any did not help, that is water does come out but not the usual steady steam, then you have a blockage somewhere and for sure, you will need a technician to track this down as it could be the heater itself.

My CVA620 machine asks to "expel air " but


keep holding the hot water button down until you get a steady stream of water with no air. if you continue to get the error message after the water comes out, you will need to check the flow meter. if water never comes out, you have a leak inside the machine, a pump issue, or a blockage in the water path. That machine uses the same pump for steam and hot water, so if your steam is working, your pump is probably good. Blockages usually occur from not descaling properly. That machine is prone to leak at the hose fittings. the original o rings were black rubber, and failed fairly early. the replacements are red silicone and last much longer.

My coffee machine cva610 says descale expel air. It won't allow me to make any more coffee.


If you don't have a manual I hope this helps. You can make coffee without "Descale"ing it but it is recommended you don't go too long without doing it.

- Make sure that the filled water container is in the appliance.


- Turn the program selector to "On" with lighting and place a container under the hot water spout and another under the steam spout.


- Press the hot water button, turn the steam selector counterclockwise and dispense hot water until it flows in quiet, continuous streams.


- Press the hot water button again. Turn the steam selector clockwise to o, to turn off the water.

Recently bought a house that has system CVA615. Hasn't been used a dozen times they said - so I cleaned per instructions. It now says "hot waster - expel air". Have done everything book said...


When selecting "Hot Water," can you hear a pump working (usually a strong buzzing sound)? If you do, then water path may be blocked or pump itself is jammed. A jammed water pump still makes buzzing sound. May be stuck from not using, for long period of time. Especially, in hard water areas.

Miele CVA610 error reads expel air but when we do as manual suggests (run hot water & milk frother) no water comes out.


- Make sure that the filled water container is in the appliance.


- Turn the program selector to "On" with lighting and place a container under the hot water spout and another

under the steam spout.


- Press the hot water button, turn the steam selector counterclockwise and dispense hot water until it flows in

quiet, continuous streams.


- Press the hot water button again.

Turn the steam selector clockwise to o, to turn off the water.


If this doesn't do it for you, you are doing it wrong!

My Miele CVA620 machine announces 'Expel Air,' and


I'm probably to late for this answer, but I will share it anyway.
I got this problem after buying a used CVA620, that had not been used for a while.
To solve the problem i used a breast pump :-)
My wife had this doublepump after the last kid. And I used the hoses that comes with this unit (rubber-like) and connecting them to the hot-water and the steam-nozzles. I started pumping, and pushed the hotwaterbutton. After 5min of pumping and swearing, the job was done. No my CVA works as a charm again :-)

Expel Air


Expel air is a common problem, but if the manual's method doesn't work, it can mean only one thing, the pump is not working. You should hear the pulsing of the pump while in expel air mode. If not the pump or its circuit is suspect. The parts are SAECO and available without paying Miele's ridiculous markups.
