Hi,

Have you decalcify the machine, the boiler does not heat up if there is calcium in it.

SOURCE: EAM3500S will not froth milk ?

I had this problem once... It turns out the electrical connection for the solenoid valve that feeds the hot water out into the milk jug/hot water tap had come loose. They are clipped on rather than being soldered into place. Trace the wires back to the main board from the solenoid (brass bit with grommets) and check that the clips are in place.

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.

SOURCE: not frothing milk

that means that the steamer is not generating enough pressure steam.

This happens either because there is not enough heat, or if you release the steam when pressure is not enough.

Very common problem with the american maid makers.

bear also in mind that Krups are not the best at frothing milk, and this is also a basic model.

If you want the best capuccino Coffee machine, buy the italian ones, Gaggia, Delonghi, Ariete etc. that are all great at this, or get a bigger Krups as a replacement like the Krups XP405040 that is also good at capuccino

SOURCE: 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.

Delonghi magnifica esam 4200 lost bar pressure for frothing milk


The most possible problem is that the machine have build up scale both in boiler and in pipe system. Your are still in good chance to solve it easily since it operates normal by performing a good descaling of the machine. You can buy a very good product posibly from ebay like the Urnex DEZCAL which is an excelent descaler and if you perform a couple of descling procedures in a period of one week your machine will perfom better and better.

Delonghi Lattissima EN 660CW milk frother not frothing


I don't know why my answer posted in the comments section, so here it is in the proper area.

I had the same problem and was ready to send it in for repairs, but I talked to a great guy at Nespresso who helped me fix it myself. The problem was when I pushed the latte button, it would only froth milk for a second or two and then the espresso would start pouring. It basically refused to make a latte. Here's the things he had me do:

1) Descale immediately. I have an older machine, and descaling once a year does NOT cut it. He told me descaling every 5 months at the bare minimum, if your machine is not having any problems at all. Descaling is usually the main problem for lack of froth. I descaled and it seemed like the machine was working better almost immediately. I also ran 4 - 5 tanks of water through the hot water spout and the main espresso part (but mostly this is because it seems to take this much flushing to get the smell of the descaling solution out).

2) Reset your machine to factory settings. I have a classic Lattissima, so this is how you do it on that machine. Turn the machine on and wait until the drink buttons are steady (espresso and hot water buttons are no longer blinking to warm up). Then press and HOLD the power button until the espresso and hot water buttons BLINK THREE TIMES. Then they'll go back to steady again. You're now back to factory settings.

I did notice that I started having the trouble after moving the machine, so I'm not sure which of the above solved the problem. The main thing is it worked and I'm back to yummy lattes!

I have an Impressa Z5 and it won't **** milk up the tube as either part of the cappucino program or the stand alone milk program. I've checked and nothing in the nozzle is blocked and the plastic pipe...


There are three possible causes to milk not frothing: 1. The frothing tap is blocked: to unblock either use the cappuccino cleaner from Jura, or in 400ml of luke warm water dissolve a teaspoon of vinegar or 1/2 teaspoon of bicarb and run this liquid through the frother until completely finished (or run the cleaning program). The run about 600-800ml of water through the system. While passing the liquid through let the tap rest at froth, and milk setting for 5 seconds at a time. Repeat if necessary. To prevent this in future clean frother after 5 minute of none use. 2. The breathing nozzle is blocked, you can use the Jura Maintenance guide to see how to disassemble and clean and reassemble, but most Juras come with a spare, so replace it. 3. The machine needs to be descaled, since there is lime or scale in it.

Delonghi Magnifica Coffee Maker the milk is not frothing properly - there's lots of steam & very little milk being issued from the spout We clean the milk jug each day, have adjusted the plastic tube...


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!

Seaco Incanto not frothing milk properly


Hi
When was the last time you descaled the machine, and not with vinegar? Scale can accumulate inside the boilers and insulate the water from the heating elements, produce less steam. Descale on a regular basis.

Aeroccino does not heat


Try descaling, if the element is covered with scale it wont produce enough heat and pressure.

The machine is Krups, and therefore should be covered with one year warranty. Call the number listed on the user manual, or find contact from websites below:
