Miele Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


I have never had seen this problem ... however assuming the tray contacts are not shorted in any way ... its likely to be a problem with contacts in rear of the tray cavity. I would check the following;

1. Remove drip tray and shine a torch into the tray cavity to inspect the receiving contacts that accept the tray contacts. Perhaps theses contacts are shorted in some way.

2. The next step is to open up machine, but you need to be suitably experienced with electrical appliances to perform this step. Disconnect the power at the outlet (or if this is not accessible than at the fuse box). Remove the machine from the cavity and remove the rear panels (making note of which screws go where). Locate the wires that terminate on the contacts on the rear side of tray cavity. Disconnect the wires from these contacts. Replace panels and then reapply power to unit. If this solves your problem .. then there must be a short on the contacts in rear of tray cavity. If this does not solve the problem then trace this wire back to control board and remove wire at the control board. Again replace panels. If this solves problem then there must be a fault in the wire which can be fixed/replaced.. If this does not solve the problem then it would appear to be a problem with control board and best to call Miele.

Please come back if you need more help and also once you solve the problem .. to explain what went wrong. regards

Check the capsules haven't been damaged and ensure they are the correct genuine nespresso capsules. The wrong ones will jam.

when the waste container is full of dry coffee it usually means the drip tray will have the water in it. The valve on the Brew Unit drive is faulty and needs to be replaced
