Sounds like the venturi tube could be blocked. My model is a CVA 4085 and I can take the assembly out that sucks in the milk, mixes the air and stem and spits out frothed milk. If yours is similar, see if you can can reach the top of the milk outlet tube and rotate the ring around it anti-clockwise (if you were looking up from the bottom) and take the whole assembly out. If you have never taken this out, disassembled it and rinsed everything out thoroughly under a running tap now is a good time to do it. Then check the venturi tube: the clear (ish) bendy plastic tube that that points up and has a cone with a hole in the top. If that hole is blocked you won't get very good froth. If you can't clear it with warm running water then VERY CAREFULLY use a small needle to push through the hole at the top, then put everything back together.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Lack of pressure from the steam wand used for frothing the milk.

Hello Juneyjune,
These coffee systems have a series of small rubber 'O' rings that tend to crack from condensation over time causing your low pressure problem.
The 'O' rings are connected to a heater that looks like a horse shoe mounted in back of the grinding unit.
I would recommend contacting Miele technical services. They can have a technician come out to replace the 'O' rings or you can order them from the technical services rep if you know someone that can replace them for you. Just be careful. These machines operate off of 220 volts and that is no fun to get shocked by. I have been many times with this machine

Good luck!!!

SOURCE: my miele cva 4075

Hello Loriktarrant,

I understand the your Meile CVA4075 is showing you an F73 code. This code means that the brew unit needs to be cleaned. Here is a link to the owners manual on page 40 it shows you how to manually remove and clean the brew unit. The other issue you are having with the milk and coffe not being hot enough could be to the machine needing descaled.

Cafe barista not frothing


the frother gradually gets milk buildup and loses suction- an air blast through the milk tube and up the spout (can get an aerosol at hardware store) will help as well as the cleaning cycle. Also I used a q tip to the top of the spout several times but just had the q tip top come off and may have blocked it completely

Delonghi magnifica promblems with water and milk


Frothing jug
For milk frothing issues, soak the milk jug cover in hot water and rinse several times. If it has a froth control that can be removed by sliding in the direction of travel towards the edge whilst jiggling it gently up and down. Clean off the little o-ring with a toothpick, be gentle. The control should easily slide and click back in place when done.

Froth still no good? Examine the milk coupling to ensure the o-rings are in the right spot and are pliable and undamaged. There should be an o-ring (usually green) on the top spigot, a (black) o-ring at the front of the bottom spigot and a (red) oring at the rear. The groove halfway along the spigot should be clear. Now with the toothpick and a hot moist cloth clean all the crud from the milk coupling, especially inside the smaller spigot. Check the tiny hole at the back of the larger spigot is not blocked.

Check the flow from the hot water spout is good. If not, there are internal issues, try descaling. If it is, test the frothing jug, if it is still weak either the jug cover or the milk coupling needs to be replaced. Get them to try a known good test jug at your local coffee service center to find out which, most will be happy to do this at the counter.

Hi, the steam from the wand is not frothing the milk like it used to, hardly any froth at all.


If the frother is warming the milk, but is not frothing, then you want to make sure the panarello is clean.

Slide the cover off the frother and check the pin hold on the top edge of the cover. If this hole is blocked the milk will not froth. Rinza is great clean to help prevent these issues. http://www.cerinicoffee.com/rinza_urnex.asp

Also recommend frothing water instead of milk to clean the frother well.

Where is it blowing steam from? If it is coming from the milk spout then it most likely that the milk jug is blocked somewhere. If it is coming from where the jug connects to the machine (coupling) then you might need to change the complete coupling (assuming you used the correct orings). The biggest cause of frothing problems with these machines is lack of cleaning of the milk jug. Soak the top in quality milk cleaner for at least an hour and rinse thoroughly. Also run cleaner through it regularly using the milk only function.

Hi. Have you removed the white wheel and tried to clean it? Check the O-rings on the frothing part for damages.
Sometimes cleaning it hasnt helped at all, The solution for it that might sound crazy =) that fixed it for me at that time was to block the 2 holes with you fingers(be carefull its hot) where the milk comes out from when you make coffee, you get a little backpressure in the milk circuit when doing it. Try 2 or more times. It helpt me.

EAM3500S will not froth milk ?


First, check to see if it will pump out steam without a ton of water. If it doesn't, don't use it.

Now, skim milk is terrible for it, the bubbles are too dry and flavorless. Use 2% milk or half-and-half. It should be cold (very cold). I put mine in the freezer in a steel frothing container for 5-10 minutes before use. Just barely submerge the wand (about .25") and turn on the pressure. It should sound like tearing paper (not like blowing bubbles through a straw). Do this until volume increases to around double (if you have a frothing thermometer, it should be around 100 degrees F). Now submerge the wand farther and tilt the cup to create swirling (this is called stretching & sweetens the milk). This should be done until the temperature is around 140-160 degrees F. Done.

If your machine is no good for steam, there's another way: Put milk into a steel cooking pot (I use a saucier for large groups) and put it in the freezer. When very cold (ice forming) put on stove. Whisk briskly while heating up on medium-high. It will create fine foam & stretch the milk at the same time. The bubbles will start big, but become finer as time goes by. I test by stocking my finger in & going until it feels nearly scalding & remove from heat. Just use a ladle for he milk & a spoon for the foam.

Saeco Talea Giro no steam or water from spout


I have the same problem as well, talked to a repair shop and it's definitely a "send in" or warranty repair. I was told it's an o-ring issue. I have no water coming out of the steam wand and it goes into the dispense tray instead.

I purchased a unit second hand for my wife's birthday today. It's only 4 months old, got it home, tested it, same problem... No froth!

I've read all the posts here and all were very helpful troubleshooting guides however they did not solve the issue.

Understanding how the frothing mechanism functions is half the battle in figuring out the solution. It's a simple vacuum type system. No doubt you've read about checking the orings. This is definately the first thing to check however if this is not the reason then consider the following.

The larger of the white tubes that has the red and black oring inserts deep into its port on the tap. Why? It pushes steam past the milk pipe directly into the chrome frothing tube which causes a vacuum essentially drawing milk up it's hose creating the froth. What you can't see without further investigation is that on the underside of the tube centered between the red and black orings is a small hole. This hole is responsible for drawing the milk upwards. If this is blocked, and it probably is then no milk and no froth. Use a really small screwdriver to carefully clean the white tube both from the front and the little hole underneath.

So in conclusion. Any air leak between the red and black orings will prevent the vacuum required to draw milk up the tube and alternatively any blockage of the milk channel will also obviously prevent the flow into the frothing mechanism. Hope this helps.

Milk not frothing


Remove the black plastic outer sleeve of the Frothing Wand (some models have a metal outer sleeve). If done correctly, the “sleeve” has been removed, but the inner wand with red or black washer, is still connected to the machine.
2) The part of the sleeve assembly that you have removed is comprised of 2 pieces, the frothing sleeve and the center piece. The center piece can be seen if you look into the top of the wand.
3) Using a pencil (eraser end), or similar shaped object, push down on the center piece until an audible “click” is heard. The “click” means that the centerpiece is back into the proper position. When in the proper position, the center piece visibly sticks out the bottom of the sleeve about ¼-inch. It looks like a bird beak.
4) Now put the sleeve back on the machine and your machine should be ready to froth again.
