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.

SOURCE: not making froth
Had the same problem, but called Nespresso. Their tech suggested the following: 1) always leave off the base - will stay on even if button not pressed 2) invert the Aerocinno for 24-48 hours to "reset" the thermostat in the device. I began leaving the base plugged in, but immediately after using and cleaning (don't get ANY water in the bottom of the machine!), I invert the Aeroccino and leave it that way. My machine began making great froth with any tyoe of milk, and continues to do so a month later -
Sounded crazy to me initially, but it works.....Never returned the device, and no need to do so now - Good luck!

SOURCE: 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

THere is a little black tube inside - make sure its pushed out enough - about 1/16 an inch from the bottom. And you may have to clean it out. Happens to us too and after I do the above it works

Testimonial: "Thank you very much for the advice. I adjusted the black tube and the frothing is back!"
