Steeming nob just poped right off. How do I get it back on?

I was going to steam some milk and the nob just poped out of its slot. Any idea on how to get this back in place without taking it to a repair shop?

Just make sure to align the two notches on the back of the knob with the protrusions on the switch in the machine. Other than that, it's just a simple press-fit part. (A repairman would actually just pull it right off when taking the machine apart - it's designed to do that.)

Delonghi perfecta milk not hot enough


Ummn - something in your Q. seems not right. The milk is not heated directly - its only heated by the steam as it passes by (and picks up) by the milk using a venturi effect - same as a spray bottle attached to a garden hose. You say you have froth - but you can only get that if you have steam... (it does not just blow air thru to create bubbles). So froth = steam & steam = heat... so milk must be hot.
Suggest you check manual for the 'heat' settings for your expresso as this may have been changed. While this is adjustable, the milk is not.

Also always heat your cups before using them - the silver cup 'holder' at the top does a reasonable job but boiling water does far better.
Cheers Mike

How do i use the steam wand to froth milk


The steam wand to froth milk, you need a certain amount of milk in the cup first, then if you tilt the cup a little towards you, push the steam button and "it should froth your milk right up", but if that doesn't work then I don't know.

Milk Steamer/Frother


Take off the end bit; it unscrews. Poke a needle through the hole; I find it gets blocked quite regularly. While it's disconnected turn the knob on the right. Steam should come out. If it doesn't there is a blockage inside the machine and you need to get inside it to fix it. But the only blockage I've had is in the end bit.

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.

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!

We've had the Rancilio Audrey now for a year and still not have had a perfect cappucino. 1. Milk. We use 3.5 dairy milk, cold before going under spout. 2. What is the middle (steam) button used for? ...


  1. That is the right milk. Use a thermometer with the milk.
  2. The middle button is used for steam. It engages the high themostat for steam.
    1. Slightly open the steam valve
    2. Turn on the middle button
    3. Keep the end of the steam wand slightly above the milk surface (0.5 mm) so the steam incorporates air into the milk. (Takes practice)
    4. Open the steam valve as the boiler heats up. (Takes practice)
    5. When the milk get to 74 C (165 F) immerse the steam wand into the milk and heat to 82 C (185 F)
    6. Turn off the middle button and shut the valve.
  3. For 90 ml of coffee, use 14 gram of ground coffee. The coffee scoop that came with the machine holds 7 grams of ground coffee as it comes out of a grinder (not packed). Tamp the coffee after it is in the sieve.

Steam smells odd and affects milk taste.


The boiler is contaminated with milk and needs to be descaled and cleaned.

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.

Steam wand


As the espresso is being made, you can steam the milk by opening the valve that goes to the wand. (sometimes there is a "switch")
To steam milk:
-Fill pitcher (or whichever container you want) with milk e**ugh for about 2/3 of your cup. A thermometer would be helpful.
-Place pitcher under the wand and lift it so that only 1/2 inch is under the surface of the milk.
-Open the steam valve. The milk will expand as it heats. Lower the pitcher to maintain the 1/2 inch depth. You should hear a "shushing" sound and have ** splattering.
-When milk is about 150 F (or preferred temp), close the steam valve and wipe the wand with a damp towel or else themilk will cake on the wand.

Good Luck
