Question about Mr. Coffee ECM10

1 Answer

Frothing tube hello. I use my mr coffee espresso machine daily. It has always worked great, without a problem. This morning, I was cleaning the machine and the plastic and metal parts of the frother, which I do periodically, When I went to brew my espresso it worked great! but when I tried to froth the milk, the tube became hot but no steam shot out of the tube. I added more water to make sure I had enough to froth, but it still hasn't worked! Please help, Sheryl

It sounds like the tube is clogged.  Remove the silver tip on the bottom of the tube.  Hold it up to the light and see if you can see through it.  If you can not, take a tooth pick and clean the tip out.  This seems to have worked for mine.

    fill a cup with 3parts water and 1 part vinegar,place under the tip and soak for a 1 or 2 hours.this will loosen caked on milk and make it easy to unscrew tip with the coffee scoop tool

Should i go for an Espresso machine or coffee maker?

I can't really start my day without my espresso, so I'd say go with the espresso machine! I need my strong, black coffee fix every morning. But then again, it's a question of what you like. If you prefer different kinds of coffee every morning, buying a coffee maker might be the best way to go. I use the Gaggia Espresso Pure Semi-Automatic that I bought off Daily Cuppa Coffee for my espresso, in case you were wondering. They offer a wide range of both espresso machines and coffee makers; you can browse through them at and select the one you like.

The CLEAN light has come on. How do I clean it?

Have you ever wondered, 'how do I descale my expresso machine?' First lets us understand what is exactly is scaling. The build up of minerals inside the hot parts of your coffee machine or espresso machine is commonly called lime scale. When lime scale builds up inside the Espresso machine, it slows down the water flow, reduces the boiler capacity and can prevent your coffee machine from working properly. To keep your Espresso machine operational at full order, it is important to descale it every three months. The time intervals between descaling depend upon many factors. Quality of your water and the amount of water running through the machine are the two main factors that decide the frequency at which you should descale your Espresso machine. The more you your machine, more often should you descale it. In some cities, in conjunction with a water filter you can use your coffee machine for a year or more without descaling at all. If you use less water by drinking espressos you'll need to descale less often than if you make cappuccinos.

Descaling products are widely available from stores that sell coffeemakers and espresso machines. Be sure that the product you buy to descale your Espresso machine is intended for this specific use only. Before you descale your Espresso machine, always unplug it and make sure that it is cold. Also, never immerse the appliance in water and nor should you use abrasive cleaning products or scouring materials on any part of your Expresso machine. In case your Espresso machine does not come with a instruction guide or booklet, then use a proper citric acid based descaling solution designed for espresso machines. This should be mixed and prepared as per the instructions on the bottle or packet. Once your Espresso machine has been descaled properly you would not be left wondering, 'how do I descale my expresso machine?', treat yourself to a great cup of coffee. Some popular models of Espresso machines are Krups EA8080 Espresseria Automatic, DeLonghi Magnifica EAM3200S, Krups Nespresso CitiZ & Milk XN 7106 Fire-engine red, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5400, DeLonghi PrimaDonna ESAM6600, DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM4200S, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5500 and Magimix Nespresso Citiz M190.

My mr coffee expresso mac the frother is not working good. how do i un clog it i keep it clean i do not know what to do.


It is best for your device to use distilled or at least once boiled water. If you do so you will avoid filling with calcium and the life of your machine will be longer.

Anti calc powders for small machines exists, if you already have calcium in it you should clean it. After that you will keep it clean using once boiled and then cooled water.

What can I use to clean my Mr. Coffee 12-cup coffee maker?

The standard way to clean a coffeemaker is t run white vinegar through it then run straight water through it. That is one of the few things that will clean without leaving a residue. Good luck.

I need instructions for cleaning my Mr Coffee Details coffee maker

Vinager and water are great for cleaning your coffee machine just run the mixture through the machine as you would just plain water as if you were making coffee. It might take three run throughs to clean it well, some may suggest bleach however, it takes a few rinses to get that smell out and it tends to transend to your cup. Not a happy java experience.

 You will mix it 25/75 vinager/water just plain white will do, nothing fancy. It works has worked for a long time. For at least 50yrs that I know of...
