Question about DeLonghi EAM3500 Espresso Machine/Coffee Maker
Remove and clean the O Rings.
I had the same problem, removed the o rings where the milk frother connects to, there is a green, red and black rubber O ring. Remove them and get a toothpick and clean around where they sit. You will notice a hard milk build up like when you get on your teeth. This is what is causing your problem.
........ o rings.........its as if were working on the space shuttle!!

SOURCE: steamed milk
I just had this same problem and solved it. It was due to a very small amount of milk residue on the inside of the black frothing unit (the one with the dial which lets you choose foam or no foam). Grip the dial firmly and pull it out while twisting. It may take a few seconds to twist and pull it out. I had a very small spec of milk residue in one of the crevices on this piece. Quick clean with a toothpick and plenty of hot water, reassembled, and it works perfectly. Hope this helps someone.

I had the same problem today. "http://www.singleservecoffee.com/archives/007209.php" talks about filling the frother above the max line, so that the whisk does not suck in air and does not pop off. I tried it and works. Make sure you close the lid properly to avoid spillage.

If no milk comes out of frother, check the o-ring on the upper "plug" where the milk jar connects to the machine. There are two connectors; only the bottom one corresponds to the steam output while the upper one is a plug. Mine had a worn out o-ring on the plug, and this keeps the machine from frothing milk.
