Question about Miele CVA615 Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Water coming out of the hot water dispenser all the time!

I have my unit installed about 2 years old but never used it until 3 weeks ago when a coffee drinking roomate moved in.. They made coffee every day with no problems.. The also used the steamer with no problems.. Last week I decided to try the hot water function with dispensed hot water fine. The next time They made coffee 1/2 of the water came out as coffee and 1/2 came out through the hot water spout. When we try to use the steamer water comes out of the hot water spout also and the steam doesn't work. Although it seems to be trying.. I called tech support and they said the valve is problaby stuck and to call a service guy for $200 to come fix it.

The unit was only been used for 3 weeks.. Athought it sat unused for a year or two..

Any ideas on a quick fix to release the valve? I'm handy so I can take apart the unit if needed..

Thanks

    i havle the same probleme too. I have the guide and I have followed it to the letter and all it tell me is that should not happen, but 0 solutions. I lose 6-8oz. of water out the steam spout with every cup of coffee I make. I even tried leaving the steam button on while in coffee mode, that just made the water come out fster.

Descaling rancilio


Use Citric Acid.

  1. Dissolve about one tablespoon of citric acid in the water reservoir.
  2. Fill the boiler completely. Open the steam valve and start a hot water cycle until water comes out the steam vent. Stop the hot water cycle, close the vent.
  3. Let the boiler heat up about 5 minutes. Then turn off the power.
  4. Let the acid solution work for about 1/2 hour.
  5. Pull a 30 second shot to change the water in the boiler.
  6. Repeat flushing cycles (steps 3, 4, & 5) until the water looks clear. Refill the reservoir with water and acid as needed.
  7. Wash out the water reservoir.
  8. Pull 5 or shots to get the acidic water out of the boiler. Run a hot water cycle to clean the acidic water out of the steam vent.
  9. Let the unit come to temperature and look for leaks.
  10. Make some coffee and look for leaks.
  11. Froth some milk and look for leaks.

Problem with Miele CVA615 Espresso Machine Water


Frankly, there are things wrong that are beyond your scope, mainly because of the domino effect in small espresso machines no matter who makes them. There are multiple thermostats instead of a pressurestat, and on and on trying to replicate what a commercial machine does. In a machine like yours, the slightest failure of a gasket throws off everything. There is better containment of problems in commercial machines, but that too depends on what fails first.

My advice, if you are a home user, would be to get a manual pump machine , such as a Pavoni, (which I have lost respect for since they employed plastic pistons,) or if for a small cafe or bar, something like a semi-automatic job plumbed through a filter. Either way, in all honesty and that has cost me dearly, I warn you about this coffee business, because it is a science and an art.

It is not easy to make a good cup of coffee or espresso, especially.

I have had a Keurig for about a year. It has worked great and I am very happy with it, and use it several times a day. However recently it has started acting strange. When it enters the heating phase, the...


Sorry to read about your issue.
If you have been doing the descale, your unit is defective.

Keurig does not make repair's or carries replacement parts for their units. you can contact Keurig at 1-866-901-2739 or Keurig.com
You do have a 1 year warranty, and if you are out of warranty. They will give a discount on a new unit.

The brewer should be de-scaled at least every 3-6 months. Scale is harmless, but if left unattended, it can hinder optimal brewer performance. De-scaling your brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, removable water reservoir and other parts of the brewer that come in contact with water. Better water quality and water heating means a better cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa or iced beverage. We recommend de-scaling your brewer at least every 6 months (every 3 months if your water has a high mineral content). The de-scaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar.

Take 48 oz of white vinegar. place in tank. pretend you are making coffee (Do No Use K Cup). let the water fill you mug. then empty that mug. Do it again until tank is empty. then let sit for 4 hours.
Then fill with fresh water to the top. let that tank of water run thru. towards the end taste the water.
If you taste vinegar..use more clean water, until the taste is ok.

I tried to help you. Please help me and Vote/Rate this response. Thanks and good luck

No coffee, water going to the drip tray


OK, so this is a problem with your brew unit. The unit is not cycling correctly to tell the water to come through.

We had another problem like this just this week.

The wat we fixed it was 1) Give the Brew Unit a really good clean. 2)Make sure the Brew Unit can complete a cycle - manually rotate the brew unit components through a cycle 3) Lubricate the Brew Units moving parts if necessary using some Saeco or Other Food Grade Lubricant

Then try watch a complete coffee cycle by leaving the side door of your machine open, and tricking the micro switches into thinking the door is closed by engaging them with some card or something similar.

Let us know if this does not resolve your issue.
