SOURCE: I have a Delonghi Magnifica

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.

So in conclusion. Any air leak between the red and black rings 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: 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.

Froth


If you are getting steam out of the wand I suggest you practice and work ha and to learn how to froth up the milk. The machine does not froth up, it is the operator who does. You basically need to keep the wand just below the milk level and keep moving very slowly up and down always trying to stay below the milk level. If the container is wide you may need to swirl as you moving.

My nespresso machine won't froth the milk


Brand of milk definitely matters... Here in Canada I used Sealtest 1% when I first used it and the froth was thick light and luxurious. Then one week picked up Neilsen 1% and found it produced absolutely ZERO froth. Back to Sealtest...back to froth. Milk brand matters....but don't know why.

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.

Frothing


You should try to hold the steam end half a centimeter lower the top surface of the milk and try to have it with a slight angle in the pot with milk and near to side of the milk pot about 1 centimeter. If the steam end goes very near to the top surface of milk and for seconds goes above and then back into milk this can create the bigger bubles foam milk.. So with a very steady hand you can create very nice smooth foam. Also remeber that should stop heating anymore the milk after 72 degrees selcius the point at which you can not leave your hand out on the pot for more one second this point you must stop. After the 72 to 75 degress you could burn the milk protein and any foam already created will desapear just like that.
Try also in youtube "milk frothing" and you find many videos on how to do it.
Good luck.

Aeroccino deosn't make froth


Our aeroccino worked fine for 2 years and suddenly it didn't made foam anymore. We tried the "inverting trick" without much success. We contacted Nespresso and they suggested switching from regular fresh milk (we used 2%) to UHT milk (harder to find in US) and to use it cold and freshly opened. So we tried that and it works.
Hope this solution works for you too

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).
