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 milk frother just boils the milk and does not froth it up any more

Hold the frother arm and pull the lower section off (It is in two pieces ) With the lower part off use a chopstick or something similar to push the small plastic nozzle out from the lower section,push from the narrow end .It will come out with a click,you will probably find it is blocked with dried ?congealed milk. Leave it to soak inhot water/wash up liquid and then use a nail brush to clean it also clean inside nozzle . Press nozzle back into sleeve untill it clicks into place and replace

Milk does not foam

Look at the milk frother.
Ensure there is the end of the inner nozzle poking out.
If not remove the frother insert a pen and push the inner towards the end until a click is heard.
Job done.

Cannot ventilate machine

Sounds like the milk frother is blocked.
Remove the frother completely,try to ventilate without it.
You should be able to see through the center of the frother.
If not try to clean it out with a paperclip or pipe cleaner.

The milk frother is making the milk spit out of the jug and not producing any froth it used to be fantastic.

Check the end of the frother,ensure the center is protruding.
If not remove the lower end of the frother and push the center towards the end and click it into place.
This is a very common problem.

It will not froth milk this has just happened

Hey there, if your machine is heating ok and is up to pressure then it may be your frother is blocked. If you take the sleeve off the frother and unscre the rest and make sure it is all clean. Also you could try unfolding a paperclip and pushing up into steam tube to move any blockage. Any further problems or if you require any parts please contact David at and he should be able to help you out.

All the best

My gaggia classic frother is stuck and cannot turn the black knob

pull the knob to you, take it out than grab the valves axe with wrech or pliers, to prevent braking the black knob and open the valve.
after you opened it once it should work perfect.
ps these valves seal metal to metal and when thay stay long without working thay can do this.

Milk is heated but doesn't produce adequate froth

Inspect the end of the frother nozzle you should see a small plastic piece protruding.
If you dont see it remove the lower half of the frother and insert a pen and push the plastic insert to the end of the frother.
A "click" should be heard when it is located correctly.
