Question about Mr. Coffee ECM10

1 Answer

Frothing tube hello. I use my mr coffee espresso machine daily. It has always worked great, without a problem. This morning, I was cleaning the machine and the plastic and metal parts of the frother, which I do periodically, When I went to brew my espresso it worked great! but when I tried to froth the milk, the tube became hot but no steam shot out of the tube. I added more water to make sure I had enough to froth, but it still hasn't worked! Please help, Sheryl

Sheryl,
It sounds like the tube is clogged.  Remove the silver tip on the bottom of the tube.  Hold it up to the light and see if you can see through it.  If you can not, take a tooth pick and clean the tip out.  This seems to have worked for mine.

Why (is) milk frothing not working in my Mr coffee cafe barista?

In my experience of coffee machines it is always a clog. You have to use milk enzyme cleaner and few do. It may be in the tube deep in the machine. You have to remove it an push something through it. If the tube is clear plastic you can break up the clog by squeezing it.

Cafe barista not frothing

the frother gradually gets milk buildup and loses suction- an air blast through the milk tube and up the spout (can get an aerosol at hardware store) will help as well as the cleaning cycle. Also I used a q tip to the top of the spout several times but just had the q tip top come off and may have blocked it completely

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

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.

Hi
I have just bought a Franke Flair coffee machine second hand. It looks like new and the seller said it was in good working order - however it does not have the grinder blocker and I think we need one. I wouldn't mind also getting the once over from an expert and then maybe some kind of ongoing contact should we have problems with it. What are your rates?

General question about the Mr. Coffee Espresso ECM10

Greetings!

Put desired amount of water in resevoir (plus a little extra to be used to steam your milk for latte) and close up tightly.

Put espresso grind coffee in basket and tamp down with a tamper. If grounds are not packed, steam will seep through and will cause an erosion of sorts instead of just letting the steam hit the grounds.

Put the basket with handle group in recess rotating to the right as far as it will go.

Rotate the ON/OFF switch to the symbol for "Brew" until you get out the desired amount of espresso.

Then, take a caraf of milk and immerse it with the plastic black steam arm. Rotate switch to "STEAM" and froth milk. In the beginning, ensure that you have enough water for the espresso AND enough left to froth without having to shut off machine, refill with water, just to froth.

Be careful when you open the water resevoir cap after brewing because there is a vaccuum created and a burst of steam will shoot out the lid and may burn you.

The gasket above the grounds hopper eventually will deteriorate and more steam will escape than espresso is produced. There is no replacement parts for this machine since it was made in China according to a Mr. Coffee representative that I called this morning at 1-800-MR-COFFEE (800) 672-6333.

Good luck with your machine. Hope this helps! If you don't have a tamper for the grounds, I found one at Bed Bath and Beyond. It is stainless steel with 2 sizes. The smaller size works for this model.

No froth

Make sure the small metal tube is clean as well as the holes in mounts into. The tube can be removed easily from the rubber ends and cleaned. I've had my unit for a year now and we use it ever day without this issue ever happening. I did have the constant beeping water leaking from the seat/valve problem which I fixed by opening up the unit and tightening the screws.
