SOURCE: Delonghi Magnifica Coffee Maker the milk is not

You did not state anything about descaling, but every now and then, I also add water and descaler to the milk container and use the "Frothing" program to run through the water and descaling-solution (double-click the Cappuchino button).
I have also noticed that the first cup (and sometimes even the second) will produce less milk, and not as well frothed milk as later cups. My theory is that the machine is warmer when producing later cups.
If possible, you could try to run two-three frothings of plain water through before switching to milk. I realize this is inconvenient, but it could be worth testing this to see if it helps. We luckily have two milk containers and keep one filled with water just for the purpose of heating up (or whatever we do :) the frothing system before serving the first cappuchino.
Good luck!

SOURCE: I have a Delonghi Magnifica

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.

SOURCE: descaling a delonghi magnifica ESAm04

I had this problem too. The instruction manual says to turn the steam knob only half way counter-clockwise after pressing the button for 5 seconds, but you need to turn it ALL the way to have the procedure start (at least, that was the solution with my machine). Good luck!

This is factory preset and cannot be altered. You do need to use the "clean" function on the milk frother unit to ensure the boiler and pipes heat up enough also.

Delonghi coffee machine ecam23. Milk comes out of jug when turning machine on and milk also comes out after the water when cleaning the spout on the jug.


I think the ECAM has a second solenoid at the front near the milk jug. That solenoid valve might be stuck open.

Milk is not being sucked up from container for frothing. It is sucked intermittantly; usually becoming less at the end of the cycle; sometimes not sicking at all. O rings have been cleaned; so has the...


Do you also find the milk seems to be warm rather than hot?
If so the main water heater is not working correctly (there are two in most Delonghi machines like this). The horse-shoe shaped one is the one used by the milk frothier.
In many cases it is the thermal sensor that is faulty (open circuit). Normally at room temperature they should measure 120K ohms in resistance. These can become intermittently faulty so you need to measure the resistance when the fault actually occurs so is not an easy job if you have no technical training.
