If the machine heats up for coffee, then the steam wand tips are probably blocked. Use a paper clip or needle to clear out the holes at the end of the steam wand.

Delonghi perfecta milk not hot enough


Ummn - something in your Q. seems not right. The milk is not heated directly - its only heated by the steam as it passes by (and picks up) by the milk using a venturi effect - same as a spray bottle attached to a garden hose. You say you have froth - but you can only get that if you have steam... (it does not just blow air thru to create bubbles). So froth = steam & steam = heat... so milk must be hot.
Suggest you check manual for the 'heat' settings for your expresso as this may have been changed. While this is adjustable, the milk is not.

Also always heat your cups before using them - the silver cup 'holder' at the top does a reasonable job but boiling water does far better.
Cheers Mike

Expobar steam wand loss of pressure


Are you leaving enough time for the water to heat up to a sufficient temperature? Typically 20 minutes is needed to ensure good steam flow.

My steamer wand has an awful odor everytime I try to steam something! I have cleaned it (even soaked in baking soda!) and the problem won't stop. Anyone else have this problem?


This is a common problem for the commercial espresso machines, Due to lack of cleaning of the steam wand after they finish frothing milk.
The milk flows back to the boiler and the water gets contaminated with milk.

Does the steam smells like rotten milk? If the answer is yes, you have contaminated water and or lines.
If not may be there is a lot of IRON in the water.

Run a descale cycle.

After you are done frothing milk, wipe the steam wand with a wet towel and open the steam valve for 2 seconds, close it and that's it.

Frother builds up too much pressure and explodes off the machine


I had the same problem. All you need to do is take the steam nozzle apart and clean it. I tip can be cleand with a neadle. Just make sure you unblock the little side holes and make sure to thoroughly clean the little hole in the front. Over time the milk builds up in the nozzle, clogging up the "steam holes", so the preassure gets too big and the rubber attachments can't hold it any longer. Hope that helps.

Extremely loud squealing noise during steaming milk


This could be blocked. The best way to clear this is to switch off the machine and see if you can dismantle the frother arm. Sometimes the arm will come off by unscrewing. If it does, wash it in hot water and washing liquid. If it doesn't come off try putting the frother wand into a mug of cold water and allow it just to steam the water.
Frother wands don't just steam liquids - they **** up liquid which can block the vents and the actual steam hole which this machines' problem sounds like it does have.

I have a expresso machine ESP6. it is not letting out enough steam or frothing milk. what's the problem and how to fix it?


The steaming wand's tip gets gunked up with milk so make sure to clear that with a needle first. Make sure the machine is fully heated before using the stream function (should have an indicator light). Typically this model will expel water first, then a low pressure steam. After about 30 - 40 seconds it should produce meduim pressure steam. Make sure the pump is making the proper clunk, clunk sound or it could be failing. Also, the steam wand arm may be obstructed and descaler solution will have to be used to remove the deposits. Hope this helps.

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.
