Question about Philips Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
My machine doesnt froth up my milk properly this started about 2 weeks ago. Steam is coming out of the pannarello, but it takes long than normal for the milk to get to my desired temperature.

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.

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.

per il milk island asciugare bene la valvolina e tutti i fori del blocco di plastica che fa da montalatte devono essere perfettamente asciutti dare dei colpetti alla valvola per fare uscire eventuale acqua all interno.

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.
