Cleaning the coffee maker

Cleaning a coffee maker is simple. Fill the carafe with 9-10 cups of Water and 1 cup drain cleaner. Put a paper filter in the basket. Run the cycle. You will see lots of garbage in the carafe. Repeat with the same water. Next dump the water into the sink and refill the carafe with fresh water. Run again, several times to flush out the acid. remove the basket and scrub it clean. Your coffee maker should run like new.

How do I stop the

Thoroughly wash the pot and the basket with a good oil/grease remover (detergent) such as DAWN dishwashing liquid.

Then run White Vineger/Water (50/50) mix through the coffee maker TWICE, with the basket and pot in place. (NO coffee, nothing in the basket)

DO NOT RUN any detergent or soap through the coffeemaker at any time.

Then, run straight water through the coffee maker TWICE (no coffee, basket empty)

Then wash the pot and basket out AGAIN with a good detergent.

This will remove any residue that is in the coffeeemaker from the factory.

As coffee brews, there IS a slight amount of oil that is produced. The coffee itself has oils in it, and is part of its flavor, and freshly brewed coffee will have a slight oil residue.

My capresso team gs #464 has steam coming out from every space in the machine. reserevoir is emptying slowly. I descaled it, still happening. what's wrong.

I had the same issue. If I poured 8 cups of water in the reservoir, I would only get maybe 4 cups of coffee, the rest boiled off as steam. In my case, it was an easy fix. Open the water reservoir and remove the black plastic water filter holder. Below the filter, there is a port where the water gets drawn into the boiler. In my case, there was a single coffee bean wedged sideways in the port, blocking off nearly all water flow. I fished out the bean with a metal pick, reinstalled the water filter, and the machine worked like new.

Miele/Nespresso CVA 2660 built-in coffee machine : the waste container fills with water and the quantity of the coffee dispensed is very little

That will be because all the seals in the brew head need replacing. These machines are designed to fail and need maintenance. Boiling hot water, neoprene O-Rings and pressure are doomed to failure. Water is being forced past the seals into the waste container, instead of into your cup.. That particular model is featured here often!
