The frothing stick doesn't seem to work

The machine is now about five years old and has beens sent off to replace the seal once already. The new problem is that the frothing stick no longer seems to produce enough steam to make the milk frothy, also it no longer stops when you switch it off, just carries on hissing for a boy twenty seconds.
Any suggestiions?

Hi,had same problem.Caused by end of frother becoming clogged with dried milk.Unscrew end of frother from plastic ring and try to remove blockage with a thick needle or something.Probably a good idea to descale machine at smae time.If you remove the end and then try steaming it should show that the blockage is right at the end.

Sounds as if they are, as you surmise, passing off old stock as new. Return for a full refund including postage, and purchase elsewhere.

ESAM6600 will not froth milk


Use a really small screwdriver to carefully clean the white tube both from the front and the little hole underneath


I had frothing problem as mentioned above and noticed this tube was blocked, its 4 years I have had the Gran Dama 6600.


Cleaned as mentioned and did some purge as I went along, now it works as new. Its a maintenance that should be done once a year. You learn as things happen. LOL

Delonghi Lattissima EN 660CW milk frother not frothing


I don't know why my answer posted in the comments section, so here it is in the proper area.

I had the same problem and was ready to send it in for repairs, but I talked to a great guy at Nespresso who helped me fix it myself. The problem was when I pushed the latte button, it would only froth milk for a second or two and then the espresso would start pouring. It basically refused to make a latte. Here's the things he had me do:

1) Descale immediately. I have an older machine, and descaling once a year does NOT cut it. He told me descaling every 5 months at the bare minimum, if your machine is not having any problems at all. Descaling is usually the main problem for lack of froth. I descaled and it seemed like the machine was working better almost immediately. I also ran 4 - 5 tanks of water through the hot water spout and the main espresso part (but mostly this is because it seems to take this much flushing to get the smell of the descaling solution out).

2) Reset your machine to factory settings. I have a classic Lattissima, so this is how you do it on that machine. Turn the machine on and wait until the drink buttons are steady (espresso and hot water buttons are no longer blinking to warm up). Then press and HOLD the power button until the espresso and hot water buttons BLINK THREE TIMES. Then they'll go back to steady again. You're now back to factory settings.

I did notice that I started having the trouble after moving the machine, so I'm not sure which of the above solved the problem. The main thing is it worked and I'm back to yummy lattes!

Might be the seal on the pump itself. If water is coming from underneath the unit, more than likely it's the pump seal. Very common problem. You'd be better off replacing the whole pump and not just the seal. Less trouble that way.

Poor frothing


You need to check (or replace) the air-intake nozzle which is located inside the coffee outlet. You will sure loose the good froth if that part is not clean or replaced. There should be proper amount of air input to produced the proper froth.

I own a Jura Capresso S8 espresso machine which has been wonderful except for the pump that makes the froth. I sent it back to be repaired once already, at the tune of $250.00. Now it seems to have gone again, and this time it will cost me $275.00 to have it repaired. Anything I can do myself?

I have a Breville ESP6 Espresso Machine which needs a new steamer wand. The seal on the screw in part at end has gone and the thread is gone too. Water spurts out between the wand and the screw in knob -...


The wand is relatively easy to remove. Thing is whether you have the right tools. If you can find stubby phillips and flat screw drivers, the job will be much easier.

You first have to remove the trim that surrounds the pod and where it covers part of the wand.

The wand is held down by a flat-headed short screw. It might take a few tries to remove this screw due to calcification over the years. Once removed, the wand should just slight out. Check if the o-rings need to be replaced as well.

Milk not frothing


Remove the black plastic outer sleeve of the Frothing Wand (some models have a metal outer sleeve). If done correctly, the “sleeve” has been removed, but the inner wand with red or black washer, is still connected to the machine.
2) The part of the sleeve assembly that you have removed is comprised of 2 pieces, the frothing sleeve and the center piece. The center piece can be seen if you look into the top of the wand.
3) Using a pencil (eraser end), or similar shaped object, push down on the center piece until an audible “click” is heard. The “click” means that the centerpiece is back into the proper position. When in the proper position, the center piece visibly sticks out the bottom of the sleeve about ¼-inch. It looks like a bird beak.
4) Now put the sleeve back on the machine and your machine should be ready to froth again.
