Steam and froth malfunction

Machine spurts steam intermittently instead of milk when steaming or frothing. Parts have been thoroughly de-clogged according to tech support
recommendations. Machine doesn't seem to pull milk consistently from containers, whether small or large.

The milk can not be room temperature.  It needs to be cool, does not have to be fridge temperature but can not be warmer than room temperature

I cant get my steam wand to froth milk- it heats just fine, just wont froth.


The steam valve can wear plastic on metal, try pushing on the knob while steming , if the steam pressure increases the valve is worn out and not opening all the way.

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 steam wand is bubbling the milk, not frothing


THere is a little black tube inside - make sure its pushed out enough - about 1/16 an inch from the bottom. And you may have to clean it out. Happens to us too and after I do the above it works

Saeco Talea Giro no steam or water from spout


I have the same problem as well, talked to a repair shop and it's definitely a "send in" or warranty repair. I was told it's an o-ring issue. I have no water coming out of the steam wand and it goes into the dispense tray instead.

Steam does not come out of steam pipe


If you wait too long after making the coffee, you will not have enough water left to make steam. Try to steam the milk immediatels after the coffee loses pressure.

The mahine does not froth the milk properly anymore


alisha165,

the saeco royal digital dosn't froth milk.... it produces steam, you are the one that froths the milk. is the machine still producing steam? if not you will need to have your steam boiler replaced. This should only be dune by a qualified repairer. If it is still producing steam but it is not as good as it use to be, descalling you machine may help.

Too much froth


Does this happen after you make several froths or the first time you start the machine? Try removing the panarello and froth milk that way then see if this is happening too without the panarello. I found that panarellos are great as a "quick learning to froth?- but they do have the tendency to froth milk too much without heating it up ( to the temperature that you like).
