SOURCE: steamer function doesn't work properly

We just had the very same issue and I went back to the product directions--we took things apart and thoroughly cleaned everything, especially each part of the sleeve. Once we put it back together we sat it next to the sink and ran it on steam with the water/steam going into the sink until it was running cleanly with a good steady flow. Fixed!! I'm so pleased because we love this machine...I'm totally addicted! Good luck.

SOURCE: steamed milk

I just had this same problem and solved it.  It was due to a very small amount of milk residue on the inside of the black frothing unit (the one with the dial which lets you choose foam or no foam).  Grip the dial firmly and pull it out while twisting. It may take a few seconds to twist and pull it out.  I had a very small spec of milk residue in one of the crevices on this piece.  Quick clean with a toothpick and plenty of hot water, reassembled, and it works perfectly.  Hope this helps someone.

SOURCE: steam and froth malfunction

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

SOURCE: Seaco Incanto not frothing milk properly

Hi
When was the last time you descaled the machine, and not with vinegar? Scale can accumulate inside the boilers and insulate the water from the heating elements, produce less steam. Descale on a regular basis.

SOURCE: Cappucinatore won't pull milk through the tube

Hi
There should be a small pin on the top of the Cappuccinator. When it starts, twist the pin slowly until the milk flows up the tube. Then leave it where it is and it will work all the time.

Coffee maker not frothing milk


The tube on the "ball assembly" which connects to the "milk" tank may be missing an O-ring. If this O-ring is missing, the steam will only siphon a little bit of milk because there is no seal. If it is working properly, the siphon can fill be expected to fill a cup in about 30 -60 seconds.

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.

DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5500 when trying to make a cappucino it wont **** up the milk any ideas thanks


Had this exact problem a few times on a cleaned well maintained milk jug top with an ESAM5500M. Delonghi 'repaired' it by sending a new milk jug frothing top.

It's caused by milk fat deposits, the frother part on the milk jug may look clean but deep inside it's not. I clean mine with pipe cleaners, detergent and hot water and still it wouldn't froth.

The problem re-occurs for me every 6 months or so. You could buy the milk fat remover solution to clean it. Personally I just boil the whole milk jug frother in detergent and the again in descaling solution, that's fixed this problem twice now, although I think it will eventually corrode the 'o' rings on the frother, still cheaper than buying a new frother part each time though.

If it still doesn't work after that, the only other reason for this problem I found mention of was caused by a broken rubber seal where the milk jug fits to the machine. It's most likely to be milk fat deposits inside the frother though.

I have a Saeco Royal Professional. My problem is that the cappucinatore is not sucking up the milk. We've rinsed it with water and it still doesn't **** up the milk.


HI
If you still have the pin in the top of the cappuccinator, try twisting it when the cap. is steaming. Twist slowly until it starts to draw milk up the tube. If you don't have the pin that is the problem.
There is a flat side on the shaft of the pin that causes the suction when the steam passes the pin. If you don't have the pin you can get any suction.

Our PrimaDonna coffee machine doesnt appear to be takeing in any milk from the jug to make latte's or cappuciono's, is there any way of sorting this out ?


Most common cause of this problem is a blockage in the milk jug. First thing you should try is soaking the complete jug top in a quality milk line cleaner (available from specialist coffee machine retailers) for at least an hour and then rinse thoroughly. Then try running a fresh cleaning solution through the jug instaed of milk. Good luck and post again if this doesnt work.

My Delonghi Prima Donna won't dispense milk only steam.


I've just had the same thing happen to me today. The one thing I noticed was there is a broken rubber ring which appears to have fallen from around the milk spout.

I'm off to the Service Centre tomorrow so will hopefully have some good news shortly...

STEAM PROBLEM


Does the steam itself smell, or just the milk. If yes on the steam run the descale again. If no on steam then check the perfect cream wand the black plastic arm connected to the steam wand, dissamble and clean, make sure all the holes are clear.

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.
