Just wanted to comment on the issue with the Aeroccino when it stops working. As has been mentioned, Nespresso stated in the past that perhaps moisture (water) had gotten into the bottom of the frother and that might have been the reason it had stoped working. This was not my problem---I was very diligent in preventing ANY moisture entering the unit. But Nespresso has finally acknowledged the real issue. This is Nespresso's partial reply to my query: "Another possible cause for the Aeroccino to not turn on is the result of the Aeroccino jug being stored on the Base. The base does not have an on/off switch; therefore it is drawing full power at all times when plugged-in. If the Aeroccino jug is stored on a plugged-in base it can short-circuit. Once this has occurred there is no troubleshooting that will alleviate the issue, and replacement is the only option." There you have it. Mine would turn on for a several seconds, and merely warm the milk, instead of frothing it. I guess it took us 9 months to short-circuit it. Luckily ours is still under warranty, so a replacement is being shipped. Good luck to all of you with the same problem...I hope you are still under warranty. For those of you with a working Aeroccino: Don't leave the base plugged-in when not using the unit.

I have the briel multi pro EG 281 PG/APG. When I try make espresso, water comes from the frother and not from the brew head. Any suggestions on what the problem might be? Thanks!


sounds as though your brew head is clogged. when was the last time you descaled your machine? even if you've recently done it, it would not hurt it to do it again. descaling will eventually clean out the head and lines to the head and thus, your brew head should be despensing the coffee again. the reason it is having water coming from the frother is because under pressurization the water is shot into the areas that are open for releasing the pressure in the form of water. if one or the other outlets are clogged, then the next one available takes the pressure from it as it is re-routed to the only open source as your frother.

Why does frother makes elelctricty go off?


If it is the GFI that trips, there is current leakage through a path outside of the normal return connection, which could mean a safety problem. If the circuit breaker trips, or fuse has blown, there is a short circuit inside the frother. In either case, the frother needs to be disassembled by someone knowledgable in electrical circuitry. It could be something simple, like frayed wire insulation, or could require replacement of an electrical component or the entire frother.

Hi,

Nespresso stated in the past that perhaps moisture (water) had gotten into the bottom of the frother and that might have been the reason it had stopped working.Try turning upside for aeroccino upside down for 24 hr. you do not need to do this to the base


Aeroccino jug being stored on the Base. The base does not have an on/off switch; therefore it is drawing full power at all times when plugged-in. If the Aeroccino jug is stored on a plugged-in base it can short-circuit. Once this has occurred there is no troubleshooting that will alleviate the issue, and replacement is the only option.Don't leave the base plugged-in when not using the unit.


Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

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.

What does a blue light mean on my aerochino? thanks.


Means you are not heating your milk, the frothing milk will be cold (for iced drinks) because you have held the button down longer than normal. Usually it takes 5 Seconds for the blue light to go on. try turning it on or pushing the button faster, It should turn on red, for heated and frothed milk.

Power OK to base, but frother has no power


My frother was working several month without problems. I love that! Someday i try to turn it on - nothing. I opened the frother and found out the the thermal fuse was broken. The specification for that fuse is 108°C/5A 125V~. The fuse you found in the red wire - there is a transparen tube to protect the thermal fuse contacts.I replaced the fuse - it worked !
That means the frother was overheated. The fuse has done the job.

I have an Nespresso Aeroccino that will not make froth


Sorry, but it looks as though you have the classic Aeroccino-problem. Nespresso states that leaving the Aeroccino on its base while it is plugged-in to the wall, will cause it to short-circuit (because there is no off-switch on the base, it is continually feeding full power to the frother), and the result is that it makes only warm milk. Replacement is the only solution...I hope you are still under warranty.

Not making froth


Had the same problem, but called Nespresso. Their tech suggested the following: 1) always leave off the base - will stay on even if button not pressed 2) invert the Aerocinno for 24-48 hours to "reset" the thermostat in the device. I began leaving the base plugged in, but immediately after using and cleaning (don't get ANY water in the bottom of the machine!), I invert the Aeroccino and leave it that way. My machine began making great froth with any tyoe of milk, and continues to do so a month later -

Sounded crazy to me initially, but it works.....Never returned the device, and no need to do so now - Good luck!
