SOURCE: saeco milk island - no froth

I agree with the poster that the key item is the little black plug (referred to as the valve in the supporting documentation). My milk island frothed beautifully for 2 months before gradually decreasing until I was getting just hot flat milk every time.

The valve has a dark grey pointed rubber plug which is possible to pull out and clean, and is fitted back in the hole by poking it back in. But what I found made a huge difference were the two slots/holes in the top of the valve piece. In my case they were clogged up (invisibly) with dried milk. As soon as I used a needle to unclog and clean the holes under a running tap, it got back to frothing again.

Whenever I use the milk island, I make sure I rinse and clean all parts immediately after use, leave them to dry, and before putting together again give the two holes in the valve a brief hard blow to clear it of water. The whole cycle takes about 30 seconds at most.

SOURCE: EAM3500S will not froth milk ?

I had this problem once... It turns out the electrical connection for the solenoid valve that feeds the hot water out into the milk jug/hot water tap had come loose. They are clipped on rather than being soldered into place. Trace the wires back to the main board from the solenoid (brass bit with grommets) and check that the clips are in place.

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

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.

Cafe barista not frothing


the frother gradually gets milk buildup and loses suction- an air blast through the milk tube and up the spout (can get an aerosol at hardware store) will help as well as the cleaning cycle. Also I used a q tip to the top of the spout several times but just had the q tip top come off and may have blocked it completely

Problem with frothing unit. I bought my Die-Cast


It probably has a line clogged. It could be from backed up milk, but also could be the water you're using. Those things are finicky about have filtered water, especially because when the water heats up it can deposit calcium etc. onto the inner water lines. Only use store bought filtered water.

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.

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.

Milk won't froth

Not frothing milk


that means that the steamer is not generating enough pressure steam.

This happens either because there is not enough heat, or if you release the steam when pressure is not enough.

Very common problem with the american maid makers.

bear also in mind that Krups are not the best at frothing milk, and this is also a basic model.

If you want the best capuccino Coffee machine, buy the italian ones, Gaggia, Delonghi, Ariete etc. that are all great at this, or get a bigger Krups as a replacement like the Krups XP405040 that is also good at capuccino

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.

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).
