With the machine cold (or hot if you have the right implement and can keep your hands away from the steam) I would try to insert something like a pin or a small length of bicycle brake cable up the frother tube and see if you can free what probably is a plug of solid mik in the end of the frother. Sounds like a blockage, it may suddenly blast out steam if you free it and you have the valve open so watch out. If it's not that then I would take the valve apart, especially if the machine is making the right noises. I'm not farmiliar with AEG machines though.

Filter change


this was absolutely the problem with my Jura Capressa E-8 machine. I followed instructions after changing the filter. I opened tap-machine stated that it was filling system- I closed tap when instruction. The open tap remained on because no water was filling system. I took the frother tip off and opened tap. Water filled system (container under frother). I closed tap without the frother tip. Machine Ready.... (I heated water in microwave for three minutes) I placed the frother tip in there and used a wooden skewer to ensure frother was clear of debris... Worked like a charm!

After moving my machine from MD to WI (it was shipped laying on its side) the machine grinds and makes all the usual noises, but instead of dispensing coffee, water pours out of the milk frother.


Hi
If you packed it on it steam valve side you bent the valve shaft and its holding the needle open. Your going to have to remove the shaft and replace it with a new one.

Ventilate message, then no steam coming out


Sounds like you have an internal blockage in one of the boilers.
Take it to your local service agent for repair.
Did you remove the milk frother and try the hot water again?
A blocked frother is a very common problem .

My nespresso aeroccino machine seems either quirky or moody: sometimes it froths the milk, and other times it just kind of heats it up and stirs it, even though I'm pouring the right amount of milk in and...


THEY SAY MILK MATTERS. SKIM OR LOW FAT BEST. ALSO MAKE SURE IT IS CLEAN, WHEN YOU ARE CLEANING IT, REMOVE THE FROTHER, TO BE SURE MILK DOES NOT STUCK IM COIL, WHICH CAN MAKE THE FROTHER, NOT MOVE AS QUICKLY AROUND.

Frother doesn't froth


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.

Milk is heated but doesn't produce adequate froth


Inspect the end of the frother nozzle you should see a small plastic piece protruding.
If you dont see it remove the lower half of the frother and insert a pen and push the plastic insert to the end of the frother.
A "click" should be heard when it is located correctly.
