Seaco Incanto not frothing milk properly

I have had the machine for 5 years and it worked great. when i turn the frother on, it produces steam, but when i try to steam the milk it just bubbles out of the pitcher and doesn't get very hot. it doesn't seem like there is as much pressure. Can anyone help?

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.

Frother only blows steam not frothed milk


The frother is only supposed to blow steam! At least on any of the dozens of machine I have used commercially. You put the frother into your cup of milky coffee and it blow steam and air through the coffee and makes froth. Go to Starbucks, stand near the side counter and watch.

Edited to add yours in not a normal machine, it is a home replica of a pro machine. I suspect it needs cleaning. You can get milk cleaning tablets and liquid for machine that has an enzyme to remove dried or burnt on milk solids.

Here is your manual.

Miele CVA 4066 stopped frothing milk


It sounds like the venturi tube is blocked. Have you ever removed the frothing unit and cleaned in manually? I have a model 4085 and I can reach under where the milk exit tube comes out, twist anti-clockwise (if you are looking up at it) and the whole assembly with the inlet and outlet tube comes out. These pieces can then be individually taken apart and rinsed thoroughly with warm water. If you put it back together (don't forget to twist the connector that locks it back in) and the milk still doesn't froth, take it out again and use a small needle to clear the top of the clear venturi tube which sucks air in to do the frothing. If it is really badly gunged up it might need to be replaced, but mine is 5 years old and still going with regular rinsing. My whole brew unit had to be replaced after 4 years at a cost of about GBP 200, but that's another story.

The milk frother is not sucking milk from the cup... it appears that the steamer is working as if it is steaming the milk. Any ideas on why the frother tube is not sucking any milk up?


it is clogged with dried milk. Remove the frothing wand from the machine. now press milk froth. you should get a ton of steam blowing out of the hole where the frother used to be. Your frother comes apart for cleaning. pull the chrome tip off, pull the 90 degree fitting and the black milk suction tube off, if it is really dirty you can soak the disassembled frother in hot water with a cleaning tablet. ( the small ones you drop in the brew unit, not the big descaling tab.) also, there is a clear tube with a point on the end of it sticking out of the frothing wand. this is an air admittance oriface. it allows air to enter the hot milk stream and make it frothy and bubbly. if it gets clogged, you will get hot milk but no froth. Your machine came with a spare one in the parts kit.

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.

I think you have a chrome steam wand end.
To froth properly, there is a very small hole on the side of the chrome steam wand that injects small bubbles into the milk, the hole is located aprox 1/4" down from top of the chrome wand, if this hole blocks up you can only heat the milk, not froth. I commonly use a stripped tin tie wire or a sewing needle to clear the hole . Clean the hole,do not enlargen the hole.

The mahine does not froth the milk properly anymore


alisha165,

the saeco royal digital dosn't froth milk.... it produces steam, you are the one that froths the milk. is the machine still producing steam? if not you will need to have your steam boiler replaced. This should only be dune by a qualified repairer. If it is still producing steam but it is not as good as it use to be, descalling you machine may help.

Frother doesn't froth


Does not seem normal! You should get plenty of steam for the frothing. Since the unit is new you should take it back and get a replacement. The unit needs to increase the temperature for steam, route the steam away from the espresso group to the steam unit and the pump needs to activate to create the high pressure. Any failure in this areas will create your condition. It also possible that your steamer is blocked but this is a new machine so this is unlikely but you should make sure that it is not blocked.

Steam wand used to make great foam until just a week ago


The stainless steel cover has a very small hole near the top. The hole allows a venturi action - meaning air molecules are entrained with the steam flow to increase the affect. Milk will clog the hole, but warm water and a guitar string, cheese wire, even a staple - something thin - will work to clean it out.
After frothing either clean the entire stainless steel piece or at least occlude the end at the same time as shooting through some steam. I usually use a kitchen sponge with the abrasive pad attached. The pad helps insulate the heat and provides the necessary resistance to force any milk out the small hole.
Yes, I hate living with this also. In fact I am considering machining a different steam tube assembly.
