SOURCE: steam and froth malfunction

The milk can not be room temperature.  It needs to be cool, does not have to be fridge temperature but can not be warmer than room temperature

per il milk island asciugare bene la valvolina e tutti i fori del blocco di plastica che fa da montalatte devono essere perfettamente asciutti dare dei colpetti alla valvola per fare uscire eventuale acqua all interno.

SOURCE: Why won't my starbucks serina froth milk. Just

This problem developed on my Sirena machine about a week ago. Stopped frothing milk, but still produced lots of steam. In fact, it was splattering milk everywhere, just not producing foam. Cleaned the steam wand (including air intake) and descaled the machine (even though its only 3 months old) to no avail. Called Saeco customer support (1-800-933-7876) and the very helpful rep immediately identified the problem. Inside the Panarello steam wand is a removable plastic tube. The tip of this tube should protrude about 1/8" beyond the end of the steam wand. Mine was not. Using the eraser end of a pencil, I pushed the inner tube downward into position and, voila, I now have froth again.

SOURCE: the steam wand is bubbling the milk, not frothing

THere is a little black tube inside - make sure its pushed out enough - about 1/16 an inch from the bottom. And you may have to clean it out. Happens to us too and after I do the above it works

How do i use the steam wand to froth milk


The steam wand to froth milk, you need a certain amount of milk in the cup first, then if you tilt the cup a little towards you, push the steam button and "it should froth your milk right up", but if that doesn't work then I don't know.

My Gaggia classic has suddenly stopped frothing


Hi There,

You are not getting enough steam, to produce the froth and there no blockage. I suggest you replace the thermostats. Takes 10 min max.. Gaggia thermostat set

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.

Hi We have a low range gaggia coffee machine, the steamer has stopped steaming.I thought it might be due to hard water so I flushed through hard water descaler and that has not worked. Before the...


First check the nozzle at the end of the steam wand, if you have hot water for coffee then you should have something coming out of the steam wand. If the wand is not blocked and the pressure is low then the thermostat might need to be replaced.

Hi My gaggia titanium is not frothing milk correctly. I've descents but that has still not solved the problem It's sounds like it's spitting Thanks


Try this remove the parnello wand and open the valve if you get a nice burst of steam then the problem is in the parnello wand, if you get the same spitting, then there is something in the valve or the steam boiler that is preventing the proper flow of steam.

Why won't my starbucks serina froth milk. Just stopped doing this all of a sudden. I descaled, the little hole in wand isn't blocked. The milk heats but no froth.

Cleaned the steam wand (including air intake) and descaled the machine (even though its only 3 months old) to no avail.

No steam when valve opened, spits out water in the beginning of frothing


There is a small teflon piece on the inside of the steam tube, you will have to disassemble the frother to get to it. Remove this piece. Reassemble and the wand should work fine.

Gaggia Coffee


Hello, I have been experienceing the same problem since I bought this thing. I used to have the classic Gaggia until it died after 15 years. however, when I went to this one it just didn't function the same.I was having water leaks come from the group assy so I replaced the group valve assy which I saw a diffrence and it functioned properly for a few days, then It was acting up again. No steam to froth and water bypassing the group assy... I then removed the valve assy again and saw it was somewhat clogged of mineral deposits.I cleaned it and after a few days once again it wasn't frothing as it should. Yesterday I completely tore this thing apart but couldn't figure out how to remove the steam valve assy. Does anyone have any ideas?? I removed the 2 screws and it won't move. OH BEFORE I FORGET!!! It was working fine the other day and while I was in the middle of frothing, it suddenly went to half pressure.... ANY IDEAS?? Thank you in advance....
