You have to use protein dissolving cleaners on all machines that draw milk. We use a product called Rinza in our commercial machines x 6 :>)

It could also be the pump.

Dirty water, especially with grounds in it is caused by faulty seals.

It is time your machine was professionally serviced.

My Nespresso machine does not suck up milk from the container and only hot water comes out, plus the small cup button flashes orange, is there any way to fix that?


Espresso machines sometimes come with a milk steamer wand. If your wand is producing water instead of steam, your machine is not heating properly.
But no machine draws milk into itself. If would be near impossible to clean.
Do you still have the Nespresso instructions ?

My jura X7 system is rinsing with milk. When pressing the rinse button, the machine is drawing milk to rinse instead of water??


The milk tubes should be submersed into water with a milk cleaning agent. sounds like you've left the milk tubes drawing from the fridge with milk in it.

The milk frother is not sucking milk from the cup... it appears that the steamer is working as if it is steaming the milk. Any ideas on why the frother tube is not sucking any milk up?


it is clogged with dried milk. Remove the frothing wand from the machine. now press milk froth. you should get a ton of steam blowing out of the hole where the frother used to be. Your frother comes apart for cleaning. pull the chrome tip off, pull the 90 degree fitting and the black milk suction tube off, if it is really dirty you can soak the disassembled frother in hot water with a cleaning tablet. ( the small ones you drop in the brew unit, not the big descaling tab.) also, there is a clear tube with a point on the end of it sticking out of the frothing wand. this is an air admittance oriface. it allows air to enter the hot milk stream and make it frothy and bubbly. if it gets clogged, you will get hot milk but no froth. Your machine came with a spare one in the parts kit.

I have a Saeco Royal Professional. My problem is that the cappucinatore is not sucking up the milk. We've rinsed it with water and it still doesn't **** up the milk.


HI
If you still have the pin in the top of the cappuccinator, try twisting it when the cap. is steaming. Twist slowly until it starts to draw milk up the tube. If you don't have the pin that is the problem.
There is a flat side on the shaft of the pin that causes the suction when the steam passes the pin. If you don't have the pin you can get any suction.

Cappucinatore won't pull milk through the tube


Hi
There should be a small pin on the top of the Cappuccinator. When it starts, twist the pin slowly until the milk flows up the tube. Then leave it where it is and it will work all the time.

I have a Delonghi Magnifica Rialto EAM4500 coffee maker. Recently it has stopped frothing milk. Per delonghi I have replaced all of the gaskets that connect between the milk container and the unit. When we...


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.

Machine wont draw any milk through


You are not supposed to put milk in the resevoir and run it through the machine. That's likely the problem. But like most parents you will continue to blame your child until he is totally alienated and your relationshio is an empty shell.

Milk island seems to leak water. After milk is frothed and island has been detached fro some time, a pool of water forms under the base of the milk island attachment and on top of it.


Milk island on a vienna class?
Perhaps its a Saeco Talea you have, correct?

First remember that after foaming your milk and have turned the knob back to´off location. wait until you hear a clicking sound from the machine, might take 2 -5 seconds after it set to off.
Then remove the milk container

That sound means it has close 100% and shouldent leak.

If it still leaks after that its the gaskets in the T-pipe that needs to be changed.

Capucinatore problem?


Try programming the cappucinatore button. First try holding it down for about 20 seconds while steaming. See if it will steam for 20 seconds after that without holding the button down.
