Subject: Miele CVA 620 - Australian model
Does anyone know the internals of 1 of these machines, I have read they are
based on Saeco and if that being the case are the parts inter-changeable?
Of particular interest the boiler.

My story.......new house has integrated miele coffee machine, giant step
backwards from the silvia/rocky combo I have....3 weeks in machine starts
popping the main fuse on the house....1 service call later a cracked boiler
is the problem. How much to fix I ask...$700Aus is the response ($480 of
that is the boiler).......no way no how is that going to happen, that will
be more than I get if I sell the rocky/silvia combo.

Call to Saeco and their various boilers are around $85 Aus, that would be
more acceptable if I can find the right one.

Thanks.

If it is the boiler / thermoblock like that used in the "magic series
they cost me about US$40.

AFAIK all the innards for the Miele come from Saeco; I don't think it's a
boiler you're after, it's a thermoblock. Ask the tech for the damaged one
then contact Saeco with a photo.

Alan,

According to the jobsheet - "Steam boiler leaking, turned off system 2 to
disable steam boiler". So at the moment I can pour shots but no steam or
hot water.

So far I haven't been able to contact the tech from Victoria Wide Coffee
machine repairs, left messages but no return call which isn't impressing me.

Can you suggest anyone who could look at this for me? I can take the
machine out take it somewhere if necessary

Thanks,

Michael

I know that Saeco makes many of the supers out there. I do not know
it any of it is interchangeable.


3 weeks???? is this a new machine? IMHO, I'd have them rip it out,
refund your money and cover up the hole!
