SOURCE: saeco milk island - no froth

Molly -- re: position of grey plug. I don't think this makes any difference at all. The key issue is to make sure those two slots are clear of debris or moisture. One month on and I have continued to achieve thick frothy milk purely from rinsing the milk island parts under a running tap, leaving them to dry, and then giving a short sharp blow to the two slots in the valve before reassembling.

Good luck

Sounds to me like there's a leaking gasket or joint somewhere in the frothing system. Your first bet is to check around the parts you replaced - did a gasket get squeezed or seated incorrectly? If so, it'll cause a pressure leak that will keep the frothing minimized. You'll still get the mixes (as you said) but they won't be frothed as they should because the pressure is leaking out along the way. Another idea would be to inspect the nozzle itself for a crack or damage - if that's the case, it'd cause the failure just the same as a leaking gasket could. Check around the parts you've replaced or adjusted first, since you know there was work performed, and that means there's always the chance that something was inadvertently missed, damaged, or (in the case of a gasket) not seated quite right.

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.

SOURCE: 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.

Milk frothing is very poor. I have had the machine for 7months and at the moment the frothing has stopped and milk is warm not hot. I have tried to adjust the frothing with the white wheel bu it doesnt...


Hi. Have you removed the white wheel and tried to clean it? Check the O-rings on the frothing part for damages.
Sometimes cleaning it hasnt helped at all, The solution for it that might sound crazy =) that fixed it for me at that time was to block the 2 holes with you fingers(be carefull its hot) where the milk comes out from when you make coffee, you get a little backpressure in the milk circuit when doing it. Try 2 or more times. It helpt me.

It doesn't froth properly


Trial and error solved the problem. The milk island is great but needs REGULAR cleaning. In order to clean properly one has to take apart the milk island and clean all rubber components of the dried milk that can and will accumulate. The most important cleaning taking place in all little holes as they are most likely to clog from the dried milk.

Why won't my starbucks serina froth milk. Just stopped doing this all of a sudden. I descaled, the little hole in wand isn't blocked. The milk heats but no froth.


This problem developed on my Sirena machine about a week ago. Stopped frothing milk, but still produced lots of steam. In fact, it was splattering milk everywhere, just not producing foam. Cleaned the steam wand (including air intake) and descaled the machine (even though its only 3 months old) to no avail. Called Saeco customer support (1-800-933-7876) and the very helpful rep immediately identified the problem. Inside the Panarello steam wand is a removable plastic tube. The tip of this tube should protrude about 1/8" beyond the end of the steam wand. Mine was not. Using the eraser end of a pencil, I pushed the inner tube downward into position and, voila, I now have froth again.

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.

Milk not frothing


Remove the black plastic outer sleeve of the Frothing Wand (some models have a metal outer sleeve). If done correctly, the “sleeve” has been removed, but the inner wand with red or black washer, is still connected to the machine.
2) The part of the sleeve assembly that you have removed is comprised of 2 pieces, the frothing sleeve and the center piece. The center piece can be seen if you look into the top of the wand.
3) Using a pencil (eraser end), or similar shaped object, push down on the center piece until an audible “click” is heard. The “click” means that the centerpiece is back into the proper position. When in the proper position, the center piece visibly sticks out the bottom of the sleeve about ¼-inch. It looks like a bird beak.
4) Now put the sleeve back on the machine and your machine should be ready to froth again.

As for the milk island, translaltion from the italian solution using google and drying all the parts works

Steam not frothing milk


Hi,

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

Too much froth


Does this happen after you make several froths or the first time you start the machine? Try removing the panarello and froth milk that way then see if this is happening too without the panarello. I found that panarellos are great as a "quick learning to froth?- but they do have the tendency to froth milk too much without heating it up ( to the temperature that you like).
