What coffee machine do you have and is the tank full of water all the way?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
It is a miele CVA4075 coffee machine.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 8 months ago

Check the base of the water tank and make sure it is inserted all the way there should be a little trigger switch where the tank connects that tells it it is in that may be bad or broken.

No still does not work

OK then you likely have a failed tank switch and the unit will need to be taken apart to replace the switch. This is a job to do so you have to be very handy to do it. I do not recommend doing this unless you are very handy.
