Delonghi Ecam23 not producing milk

I noticed this morning that my machine no longer gives me milk? It just says preparing milk all the time and makes the clonking noise it usually makes before pumping it out? And if I push the clean button it makes the same noise but says "heating" . Tried full clean of milk jug and full descale. It makes hot water fine using the black detachable spout.

    As I said in the original post, I've done a full des ale and fully cleaned the milk jug, I think it's a internal problem

    Internal problem means it is a heating element not working

SOURCE: My solis palazzo machine will not make regular

HI
Do both buttons do the same? if they do the first thing I would do is try to reprogram the buttons.
Push and hold the button for the coffee you want, but hold it all the way through the process. Don't release the button until you get the amount of coffee you want for that button, then release the button. That should get you the same amount next time.
If this doesn't work try this.
If you make a pre-ground shot but don't put any coffee in it, and it does the same thing you have a blockage in the brew head.
If it run normally, your grind is to fine. Turn the grinder knob to a larger number. It takes 3 times to change to the new grind.
If it still dribbles, remove the brew unit (behind the door)
Holding the handle, the top left side is the brew head. There is an outlet pipe that exits the front side towards the door. 2 screws hold it to the top. Remove the 2 screws while holding the manifold. Once they are removed, lift the l assembly off (becareful, there is a spring and inside a steel ball (don't loose it or your out of luck). Turn the brew unit upside down while holding the brew head in your other hand and the steel ball should fall out. If it doesn't come out put a towel down and tap the brew unit on the towel. This should force it out.
Now remove the brew screen, by holding the screen with your finger and twisting the thumbscrew (remember thumbscrew, DON'T use the key to install the screen, use your fingers.....
Once the screen is out look at where the screen was. There are 2 holes. 1 big one in the center and a small one to the side.
Now use air to blow back through the opening where the steel ball was to clear the opening. Once its open, clean then reassemble. Brew unit on towel right side up. Drop the steel ball in first. Then the spring.
Then place the manifold on top of that with the pipe towards the door. Insert your screws (I turn them backwards a little with a little downward pressure until they feel like they drop into the threads. They should turn down easily, if not back them up a little more ( we are trying to find the old threads) and tighten. Install screen, and tighten with your fingers. The screen just needs to be flush with the bottom of the brew head.
Run another pre-ground without the coffee and rinse it out. Do this once in a while to prevent this.
Brew head cleaning Vienna/ Master
Remove the brew unit. Holding the handle, on the top left side is the brew head, there is an outlet pipe that exits the front side towards the door (looks like a long "L" pipe). 2 screws hold it to the top. Remove the 2 screws while holding the manifold ("L" pipe assembly). Once they are removed, lift the l assembly off (be careful, there is an O-ring, spring and at the end a black rubber disk or crystal ball). Do this over a towel to prevent loosing small pieces, mainly the crystal ball.
Now remove the brew screen, by holding the screen with your finger and twisting the thumbscrew (remember, thumbscrew), DON'T use the key to install the screen, use your fingers.
Once the screen is out, look at where the screen was. There are 2 holes. A big one in the center and a small one to the side.
With the brew unit upside down over the towel, insert a paperclip into the small hole and force anything out the other side. I have gotten worms almost a 1" long from this passage. The paper clip has to go from this side to prevent damage to the seat on the other side.
Clean then reassemble. Brew unit on towel right side up. Drop the crystal ball in first. Then the spring small end first on the crystal ball.
Now the O-ring over the spring, then place the manifold on top of that with the pipe towards the machine. Insert your screws (I turn them backwards a little with a little downward pressure until they feel like they drop into the threads. They should turn down easily, if not back them up a little more ( we are trying to find the old threads) and tighten. Install screen, and tighten with your fingers. The screen just needs to be flush with the bottom of the brew head. That should do it.

SOURCE: EAM3500S will not froth milk ?

Here's what I did... with great success:
If you've cleaned all the milk deposits from around the o rings and you still have a problem then its almost certainly the milk spout (the little pipe that directs foamy milk into your cup)

Detatch the spout and get a 2.5 mm drill bit and use it to clean all the milk deposits out of the part that plugs into the lid. Rinse through with water to clean away all the bits of hard milk.

[If you put water through the spout before and after, you will notice a dramatic difference]

Doing this completely fixed the problem for me (I had about 3 years of milk build up in mine!).

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.

Why no steam.Sunbeam 6910 cafe series. Turned on steam wand this morning and all I heard was a sigh, a feint try to deliver steam but not successful. Very little pump noise / action almost non-existent....


Hi,

This could be 1 of many issues, usually the Steam pump (black or blue) is corroded and no longer vibrating correctly, the pump could be blocked, the pipe work after pump but before boiler could be blocked, the steam boiler could be blocked, the pipe work after steam boiler but before the steam tap could be blocked, the steam tap could be blocked, and also the milk nozzle could be blocked, if you feel competent to take it apart, it is easy to fix but if not take the machine to local service agent.

My car was giving a problem it wouldn't crank on. The ignition would turn on but when I would try to start the car it would make a clicking noise. So I changed the starter and still having the same...


Perhaps the thick power cable to the starter is broken. Is it a little click like a relay or more of a clonk like a solenoid? The starter often has the solenoid built in. It's this clonk that connects the heavy power to the motor. You don't usually notice this clonk because it's immediately followed by engine cranking.

So two possible causes;
1. Big power wire to the starter
2. Solenoid not firing.

Milk not frothing, internal door not positioned


Make sure that the milk container lid is thoroughly clean and that running hot water flows through the openings freely. Make sure you're using 2% milk. Make sure it's cold 2% milk.
The front door problem may be two loose screws in the back plane that holds the infuser unit. Turn off machine; remove the infuser unit and thoroughly clean. Behind the now removed infuser unit you will see two hex head socket screws; use a hex screwdriver to make sure these haven't come loose. If so, tightened them, but don't overdo it. Now reinsert the infuser and see if the door latching problem has disappeared.

Low pressure on milk frother on breville coffee machine


First,I'm NOT a Breville tech, but this is a very common problem with steam boilers. Your valve seal(s) are worn and needs replacement. Any leaking water or steaming from various places other than the steam tip is causing your tank to lose pressure. The heater needs to stay on longer just to keep everything up to pressure and properly heated. You probably noticed that your shots may not have the creme or very thin and watery. Milk steaming takes a long time or not enough steam to complete a froth, especially on a Latte. Your machine needs servicing. Contact your vendor or MFR for service.
** loose steam wands will fall off and be re-assembled without the ball seal or washer. Look around the machine for a round disk made of hard rubber or nylon plastic. Take apart the wand and reassemble with the washer or get a new washer and tighten,.
** other places were you can loose steam pressure is the Anti-siphon valve, Safety valve, and various pipe fittings to the steam boiler. Look for steaming plumes from unexpected areas of the machine.
** Scale that has built up to the point of causing valve problems are usually too much for DE-scaling to work properly. Usually done as a preventive maintenance rather an alternate to repair. Like a blood clot, if you remove it while still in an active system. Where does this clog end up? This debris needs to be physically removed from the pipes, valves, and/or tank. Heavy scaling is a sign of an old machine that will need a lot of servicing to bring it up to MFR specifications.
** Final; The steam wand(s) are the most used (and abused) parts of the machine. Constant cleaning is a required task that needs very diligent baristas to keep it fully functional. I've found that best operators use the following method to keep the steam wand in top condition; Remove milk froth pitcher completely from wand, Send a short blast of steam to clear milk residue from tip. Take a damp towel to grab wand an pull downward to wipe off any remaining milk residue. Leave the wand in a pitcher of cool water to soak during long break periods to help break up any dried milk. Let soak over nite when not in use. Have your operators notify you of any 'loosey-goosey" wands. Tighten them properly but make sure all the parts and washers are there. Check your manual or just ask your technician to show you the next time.

Clonk/know from engine when first driving off in 1st gear


Have the transmission checked, this could be a torque converter issue. It settles down after it starts and fills with fluid again.

Milk container won't fit onto front of machine


We had the same problem & worked out that it's because the actual milk container is too cold & has contracted from being in a cold part of the fridge. We moved the milk container to the door of the fridge ( it's a little warmer than the rest of the fridge) & it slotted in perfectly the next morning!

Frothe the milk?


he trick to this is making sure you have steam comming out of the wand and not water. To do this, make sure you get the steam started before you begin. To get a light foam that will not deflate, hold the wand just under the surface of the milk. You should hear a steady, high pitched noise and you should not hear the splatter of bubbles popping on the surface. Popping noises mean that the wand is too high in the milk and your froth will not hold up. A low pitched noise from the cup means that the wand is too far down in the milk. This will heat your milk (for hot chocolate), but will not give you a good foam. Good luck!
