Frother doesn't froth

I've got a brand new machine but the frother doesn't seem to put out enough steam to properly froth the milk, and seems to drip water continuously. is this normal. I was hoping enough steam would come out to swirl the milk around the frothing jug.

Does not seem normal! You should get plenty of steam for the frothing. Since the unit is new you should take it back and get a replacement. The unit needs to increase the temperature for steam, route the steam away from the espresso group to the steam unit and the pump needs to activate to create the high pressure. Any failure in this areas will create your condition. It also possible that your steamer is blocked but this is a new machine so this is unlikely but you should make sure that it is not blocked.

Frother only blows steam not frothed milk


The frother is only supposed to blow steam! At least on any of the dozens of machine I have used commercially. You put the frother into your cup of milky coffee and it blow steam and air through the coffee and makes froth. Go to Starbucks, stand near the side counter and watch.

Edited to add yours in not a normal machine, it is a home replica of a pro machine. I suspect it needs cleaning. You can get milk cleaning tablets and liquid for machine that has an enzyme to remove dried or burnt on milk solids.

Here is your manual.

Why does milk frother blow out steam instead of milk?


That is what it is supposed to do. Take cold milk in a cup, and put the frother wand in it... Kind of bob it up and down for a few seconds, and the milk will froth.

Coffee maker not frothing milk


The tube on the "ball assembly" which connects to the "milk" tank may be missing an O-ring. If this O-ring is missing, the steam will only siphon a little bit of milk because there is no seal. If it is working properly, the siphon can fill be expected to fill a cup in about 30 -60 seconds.

The milk frother is not sucking milk from the cup... it appears that the steamer is working as if it is steaming the milk. Any ideas on why the frother tube is not sucking any milk up?


it is clogged with dried milk. Remove the frothing wand from the machine. now press milk froth. you should get a ton of steam blowing out of the hole where the frother used to be. Your frother comes apart for cleaning. pull the chrome tip off, pull the 90 degree fitting and the black milk suction tube off, if it is really dirty you can soak the disassembled frother in hot water with a cleaning tablet. ( the small ones you drop in the brew unit, not the big descaling tab.) also, there is a clear tube with a point on the end of it sticking out of the frothing wand. this is an air admittance oriface. it allows air to enter the hot milk stream and make it frothy and bubbly. if it gets clogged, you will get hot milk but no froth. Your machine came with a spare one in the parts kit.

DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5500 when trying to make a cappucino it wont **** up the milk any ideas thanks


Had this exact problem a few times on a cleaned well maintained milk jug top with an ESAM5500M. Delonghi 'repaired' it by sending a new milk jug frothing top.

It's caused by milk fat deposits, the frother part on the milk jug may look clean but deep inside it's not. I clean mine with pipe cleaners, detergent and hot water and still it wouldn't froth.

The problem re-occurs for me every 6 months or so. You could buy the milk fat remover solution to clean it. Personally I just boil the whole milk jug frother in detergent and the again in descaling solution, that's fixed this problem twice now, although I think it will eventually corrode the 'o' rings on the frother, still cheaper than buying a new frother part each time though.

If it still doesn't work after that, the only other reason for this problem I found mention of was caused by a broken rubber seal where the milk jug fits to the machine. It's most likely to be milk fat deposits inside the frother though.

It doesn't froth properly


Trial and error solved the problem. The milk island is great but needs REGULAR cleaning. In order to clean properly one has to take apart the milk island and clean all rubber components of the dried milk that can and will accumulate. The most important cleaning taking place in all little holes as they are most likely to clog from the dried milk.

Seaco Incanto not frothing milk properly


Hi
When was the last time you descaled the machine, and not with vinegar? Scale can accumulate inside the boilers and insulate the water from the heating elements, produce less steam. Descale on a regular basis.

My Krups XP4050 frother heats and makes bubbles but no froth


It doesn't froth because the air hole in the frother has become plugged with dried milk (cream). There are two types of frother - old one was a black rubber nipple with a stainless 2-3inch air tube rising above the milk. The plastic insert has a pin hole (really about the size of a straight pin!) that clogs. Use a sewing needle or straight pin to clear it.
