When you froth milk you expect a high volume of steam to inject heat energy into the cold milk. If the steam heater is cold it takes a minute to heat up. If it is not used since yesterday the water lines need to pump until a stream of water can enter the steam heater coil. I recommend pre-heating the steamer before frothing each morning.
Turn on the steam dial and wait until water streams out steadily or stop after 30 seconds. Repeat until water is steaming. After a minute or 2 the steam should get loud and fast. Now you are ready to froth milk. The steam heater shuts itself off if not in use and it will need to be heated up again 30 minutes later.
If the pump is not thumping when you turn the dial it or the switch is bad, if the water or steam never runs out then the hoses need new seals. (Don't run the pump more than 30 seconds without water coming out, allow the pump to cool for 2 minutes before using again).
If the water runs out but it never steams you need a new heater coil.
All these parts need a service tech to replace them. Miele covers repairs parts warranty for 1 year and if they install it, a 90 day service warranty for any problems connected with that repair .

Miele CVA4080 milk not foaming, just hot milk


Hi Aenne. This sounds like a blockage.
Milk needs the introduction of air in order to foam/froth milk. Automatic espresso machines usually use a Venturi system which is a basic syphon method of introducing air into the steam milk mixture. This comes in the shape of a small manual valve with a fine hole in it. My recommendation would be to clean or change the complete foaming/frothing system manually. Generally there is a small airvalve/expander baffle with a fine hole that has most likely become blocked. You will need to make sure this is clear and that you can blow through it. Also ensure the foamer head is completely clear and runs some milk cleaning solution through
it. This should solve the issue....
If there is no manual air valve, then maybe the machine uses an automatic milk pump to inject the air which may be failing. This may require a technician to replace. I doubt that this will be the case. I hope this helps.

Even semi skimmed milk with froth if hot enough. Check the steam temperature, you may need to blow steam through the milk for longer.

Hi, I bought my kitchenaid artisan coffee machine on ebay. I can't get the steaming of the milk right. It froths too much so can't make just a latte or flat white. It looks to me that the nozzle...


there is an art to working a foamer ... hence the "artisan" in the coffee-maker's name. There are several aspects to a good foam:

1. If you have been using regular milk to make your foam, try half-and-half ... the thicker consistency will give you a different result.
2. If you have been jamming the foamer head all the way to the bottom of the milk while you are foaming it, try submerging less of the foamer ... this will cause the steam to have a slightly different effect on the milk. If you have been submerging it only about half way (or not at all) try different depths. If one consistent depth is not right, try swirling it around while you foam the milk.
3. Try a different amount of steam (if your steam release valve is adjustable). Pushing a lot of pressure into the milk will give you a different result than barely turning it on.
4. Are you using a cold container or a warm one to hold the milk you are steaming? If you are still not getting the results you are looking for by playing with the other aspects of your foaming process ... try a different container (it sounds silly, but it can really help).
Before you go out and spend a bunch of money on different replacement parts for your machine, spend a while playing with these aspects of your foaming process. If none of these ideas help, then you should consider replacing pieces. Foaming milk is not as easy as it sounds ... it took me a few months of (once daily) use to really get my technique down so I could make a reliably decent foam. Don't give up! and good luck!

HI THERE! I HAVE A MIELE model CVA 615 and no more pressure steam !!!so please help me thank you ,cause it`s a very dispendious item for me , thank you !!


You can remove the end tip of the steam pipe and clean it dry milk can block hose. If you litlle steam pressure you can boil water in a glass and keep it allnight long so the dry dirt milk can be soften and the pressure of the same steam can spit all the dirt out so the steam hose can be clean again.

Jura capressa F7 steam milk problem


You should decalcify, when you steam the milk some what gets through to the steam and the build up of these minerals causes the issue

First off, the best milk for foam is skim milk (0% fat). The higher the fat content, the less foamy your foam will be.

The foam is created by the steam/hot coffee from the lower part being forced through the doohickey and into the milk. That means that if the coffee itself isn't "perfect", the foam won't be "perfect". I've found that using different types of coffee (e.g. different grinds) or filling the coffee bin to different levels results in more or less steam/pressure being passed through, so the foam is better/worse. For example, if I put too much ground coffee in the bin or use too fine a grind, it blocks the water/steam that's going through the coffee, resulting in less coffee and weaker coffee, and also resulting in less foam.

Perform a full descale cycle to clear the steam boiler of any debris or build up. Most likely due to blockage.
