Magnifica 3500 chunky milk froth

I have an issue that all of a sudden my milk froth is coming out like chunky cottage cheese. Almost like the milk is off and splitting. Problem is its not the milk and the machine is clean. No idea what's causing it!?!

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: milk not frothing

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: i just got a eam

There is a blockage in the steam/ hot water circuit. By trying repeatedly to use these functions the steam boiler has now overheated and blown a thermal fuse ( thats why the alarm is displayed and now the infuser is in the wrong position for removal). If this machine is under warranty you should return it as soon as possible. If no warranty and you are a handy person (genuinely) then post again and i can help you fix it. No Good luck Rick.

Which dairy products contain the highest amount of protein?


If you like cottage cheese, then eating one cup of low fat cottage cheese will provide you with 26 grams of protein. A glass of milk will provide you with 8 grams of protein, and a cup of yogurt typically has about 10 grams of protein. These three dairy products have a good amount of protein in them.

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 magnifica promblems with water and milk


Frothing jug
For milk frothing issues, soak the milk jug cover in hot water and rinse several times. If it has a froth control that can be removed by sliding in the direction of travel towards the edge whilst jiggling it gently up and down. Clean off the little o-ring with a toothpick, be gentle. The control should easily slide and click back in place when done.

Froth still no good? Examine the milk coupling to ensure the o-rings are in the right spot and are pliable and undamaged. There should be an o-ring (usually green) on the top spigot, a (black) o-ring at the front of the bottom spigot and a (red) oring at the rear. The groove halfway along the spigot should be clear. Now with the toothpick and a hot moist cloth clean all the crud from the milk coupling, especially inside the smaller spigot. Check the tiny hole at the back of the larger spigot is not blocked.

Check the flow from the hot water spout is good. If not, there are internal issues, try descaling. If it is, test the frothing jug, if it is still weak either the jug cover or the milk coupling needs to be replaced. Get them to try a known good test jug at your local coffee service center to find out which, most will be happy to do this at the counter.

After frothing the milk it can take ages to reset back to prepare black coffee again. Both lights flash green for up to 15minutes before being ready to make another cup. Does anyone know why?


Hi Jan, This happens because the machine is too hot, due to higher heat being required for the frothing. After frothing, press the button as if you would want to brew a cup,I should blink. At that very same time, turn the steam knob fully open to let some steam out, ,which will lower the inside temperature. This should solve your issue.. Good luck, Claudio

There is no milk coming out of the frothing part of the Delonghi Coffee Maker, it just makes a noise and steam comes out.


If no milk comes out of frother, check the o-ring on the upper "plug" where the milk jar connects to the machine. There are two connectors; only the bottom one corresponds to the steam output while the upper one is a plug. Mine had a worn out o-ring on the plug, and this keeps the machine from frothing milk.
