Re: leaking system frother

Is the frothing wand completely screwed in? You can actually unscrew it (or partially unscrew it) by moving it slightly when you're cleaning it. Twist the black tip, at the very bottom, and you'll find that you can screw it on & off. Make sure it is screwed on tightly & it shouldn't leak.

Miele CVA 4066 stopped frothing milk

It sounds like the venturi tube is blocked. Have you ever removed the frothing unit and cleaned in manually? I have a model 4085 and I can reach under where the milk exit tube comes out, twist anti-clockwise (if you are looking up at it) and the whole assembly with the inlet and outlet tube comes out. These pieces can then be individually taken apart and rinsed thoroughly with warm water. If you put it back together (don't forget to twist the connector that locks it back in) and the milk still doesn't froth, take it out again and use a small needle to clear the top of the clear venturi tube which sucks air in to do the frothing. If it is really badly gunged up it might need to be replaced, but mine is 5 years old and still going with regular rinsing. My whole brew unit had to be replaced after 4 years at a cost of about GBP 200, but that's another story.

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.

The frother doesn't froth. I start with cold milk fill it to the hot froth line and push. The red circle lights up and whirls around, but when it stops there is no froth

I have tried tilting mine slightly, just a 20c peice under one edge of the base put enough of a lean on it to make the milk froth. Shouldn't have to do this, I know. I am having similar issues becasue I don't think I should have to alter the unit. Mine is 2 weeks old.

I have an Impressa Z5 and it won't **** milk up the tube as either part of the cappucino program or the stand alone milk program. I've checked and nothing in the nozzle is blocked and the plastic pipe...

There are three possible causes to milk not frothing: 1. The frothing tap is blocked: to unblock either use the cappuccino cleaner from Jura, or in 400ml of luke warm water dissolve a teaspoon of vinegar or 1/2 teaspoon of bicarb and run this liquid through the frother until completely finished (or run the cleaning program). The run about 600-800ml of water through the system. While passing the liquid through let the tap rest at froth, and milk setting for 5 seconds at a time. Repeat if necessary. To prevent this in future clean frother after 5 minute of none use. 2. The breathing nozzle is blocked, you can use the Jura Maintenance guide to see how to disassemble and clean and reassemble, but most Juras come with a spare, so replace it. 3. The machine needs to be descaled, since there is lime or scale in it.

No water or steam is coming out of the frother. Tried rinsing machine and going back and forth from brew to froth with no results.

Just fixed this same problem by taking apart the water solenoid valve and cleaning out its connection tube of deposits that was blocking water/steam flow. I removed the magnetic coil but that's not required. The connector was very tight because it had loctite sealer on the threads. I used plumbers teflon tape on the threads when reassembling.

No steam when valve opened, spits out water in the beginning of frothing

There is a small teflon piece on the inside of the steam tube, you will have to disassemble the frother to get to it. Remove this piece. Reassemble and the wand should work fine.

My Krups XP4050 frother heats and makes bubbles but no froth

It doesn't froth because the air hole in the frother has become plugged with dried milk (cream). There are two types of frother - old one was a black rubber nipple with a stainless 2-3inch air tube rising above the milk. The plastic insert has a pin hole (really about the size of a straight pin!) that clogs. Use a sewing needle or straight pin to clear it.

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.
