My Nespresso machine does not suck up milk from the container and only hot water comes out, plus the small cup button flashes orange, is there any way to fix that?


Espresso machines sometimes come with a milk steamer wand. If your wand is producing water instead of steam, your machine is not heating properly.
But no machine draws milk into itself. If would be near impossible to clean.
Do you still have the Nespresso instructions ?

Low pressure on milk frother on breville coffee machine


First,I'm NOT a Breville tech, but this is a very common problem with steam boilers. Your valve seal(s) are worn and needs replacement. Any leaking water or steaming from various places other than the steam tip is causing your tank to lose pressure. The heater needs to stay on longer just to keep everything up to pressure and properly heated. You probably noticed that your shots may not have the creme or very thin and watery. Milk steaming takes a long time or not enough steam to complete a froth, especially on a Latte. Your machine needs servicing. Contact your vendor or MFR for service.
** loose steam wands will fall off and be re-assembled without the ball seal or washer. Look around the machine for a round disk made of hard rubber or nylon plastic. Take apart the wand and reassemble with the washer or get a new washer and tighten,.
** other places were you can loose steam pressure is the Anti-siphon valve, Safety valve, and various pipe fittings to the steam boiler. Look for steaming plumes from unexpected areas of the machine.
** Scale that has built up to the point of causing valve problems are usually too much for DE-scaling to work properly. Usually done as a preventive maintenance rather an alternate to repair. Like a blood clot, if you remove it while still in an active system. Where does this clog end up? This debris needs to be physically removed from the pipes, valves, and/or tank. Heavy scaling is a sign of an old machine that will need a lot of servicing to bring it up to MFR specifications.
** Final; The steam wand(s) are the most used (and abused) parts of the machine. Constant cleaning is a required task that needs very diligent baristas to keep it fully functional. I've found that best operators use the following method to keep the steam wand in top condition; Remove milk froth pitcher completely from wand, Send a short blast of steam to clear milk residue from tip. Take a damp towel to grab wand an pull downward to wipe off any remaining milk residue. Leave the wand in a pitcher of cool water to soak during long break periods to help break up any dried milk. Let soak over nite when not in use. Have your operators notify you of any 'loosey-goosey" wands. Tighten them properly but make sure all the parts and washers are there. Check your manual or just ask your technician to show you the next time.

Mr. Cuppacino milk frother manual


guess the problem is fixed long time ago? anyway i am happy to let you know if this appliance still annoying you.
i ve one which bought at laverton market some months ago, same problem as yours: no manual and even black and decker ignore my request to send me one. therefore i studied the construction and found out how it use:
1. fill up water to the level which engrave at the cylinder. (can fill hot or boiled water to save electricity and speed up the heating process)
2. when it boil power will off automatically, remember do not overfill to leave room for the generated steam;
3. plug off the power; pull up the looped pin of the bend tube;
4. place your milk jug (of course with milk or soy filled inside may be half full only);
5. press the grey button on the cylinder top (use some more energy; i know it is hard!) steam will come out to frothy your milk. 70c for latte, or 85-90c for cuppancino something like that.

hope this can help!

How strong should the output for the cappucino/ latte steamer? Mine just sort of dribbles the steamed milk. Thanks


When steaming the milk/cream make sure to hold the rubber nozzle to the very bottom of the cup and also make sure you are leaving enough water to produce the steam after brewing a cup of espresso. Also you'll want to check the breather tube that sticks up from the nozzle and make sure it is free of buildup.When the steamer is operating correctly it should produce a loud growling sound.

Leaking water from steamer


For the grouphead check the basket there might be a slight bump around the edge that is preventing it from making a good seal when it contacts the gasket in the head. If the Double works fine then the gasket is not the problem.
For the steam wand try flushing wand for 3 seconds just before steaming, if that does not help with the watery milk, then the boiler is not getting hot enough to produce steam.

Too much water coming out of steam wand


I worked at StarBucks, what we did was put water into a contaner and steam the water, a lot of the time why the steamer doesn'..t work as well is because it is clogged. Another way to do it is to just run your steamer, also go to a coffee store and buy expresso machine cleaner. It could just need a good cleaning.

Can't get milk to foam


How long have you had the machine? Use a straight pin and poke the opening of the wand. It may be blocked. If the bottom of the wand can be removed, use some pliers, and CAREFULLY remove it, soak it in hot water. Rinse it thoroughly, and replace it back on the machine. If you cannot remove the wand, turn the machine upside down, and check the opening to the wand. It most likely is stopped up. Run vinegar and water through your machine once a week. Calcium build up does the same thing. Good luck! Happy Lattes!

New Rancilio Silva - steamed milk not perfect


please relay on your experience realizing that you now have new steam pipe(with different holes in the end of it and different pressure)
you will need to get use to them and get maximum quality of that steam pipe.
my advice:
  1. every time hold your hand in the bottom of milk container, so that you will prevent overheating which often gives the result you mentioned.
  2. every time you use cold milk.

Steam wand shooting water instead of steam


You're supposed to wait for the blinking light to go solid before attempting to steam your milk!
Until then, the water isn't hot enough (it's at coffee-brewing temp, not steaming temp) to produce steam.
Further, after steaming, the water is too hot for coffee's correct brewing temp, and the light again blinks until it has cooled down enough, if you care.
