SOURCE: saeco milk island - no froth

Molly -- re: position of grey plug. I don't think this makes any difference at all. The key issue is to make sure those two slots are clear of debris or moisture. One month on and I have continued to achieve thick frothy milk purely from rinsing the milk island parts under a running tap, leaving them to dry, and then giving a short sharp blow to the two slots in the valve before reassembling.

Good luck

Hi,

Have you decalcify the machine, the boiler does not heat up if there is calcium in it.

SOURCE: Mr Coffee Maker FTX25 - coffee tastes bad

Try running a 1/3 white vinigar -2/3 water mix into the brewer, let it brew, then run several pots of clear water through it. This should clean up any bad taste.

Just because its made of plastic doesn't mean it should taste like plastic! The engineers made a mistake in design! Get your money back and don't risk taking in carcinogens!

SOURCE: 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.

As for the milk island, translaltion from the italian solution using google and drying all the parts works

Cleaning the interior, especially the bottom where heated milk gets burned on.


90% of all my service calls were due to machines that were not cleaned DAILY. About a third of those were for espresso machines with a steamer and the rest for auto frothers. Most Barista's don't use auto frothers as they have very little control over the frothed milk. (Heat, froth density, firmness, holding, etc.) Milk(any type) will clog a machine in minutes if not cleaned up after use. Spoiled milk will contaminate any product with curds and have a bad smell to coffee.
* Clean up after any milk usage. Seconds count after frothing milk with a steam wand. Get workers in the habit of removing milk pitcher from wand and give the wand a short blast to flush the wand and wipe with a damp towel (tower wash and sanitized often) Leave the folded (quartered fold) next to wand on drain tray where it's always handy.) It only takes seconds to perform and customers appreciate the cleanliness and professional look.
* take a tip from Bartender's; you HAVE TO WASH WITH DETERGENT! when washing glasses that had milk drinks in them. Nobody want's a sour milk smell in any drink. Milk film can only be removed with soap and water and a brush. That's why you see automatic cup washers on every bar set up. It does take elbow grease to get these cups clean.
* Harden, cooked milk (coffee to) is best soaked in clean water (detergent optional) and let it sit over nite. This is a good practice to keep everything coffee/milk stain free as everything is washed/rinsed prior to use in the morning.
* Really, really baked on coffee (left burning on warmer for several days, weeks. Will need an urn cleaner to soak and wash out several times. Check with your coffee vendor as most will just swap them out with clean ones. Otherwise ask for urn cleaner from them and follow instructions. Hot water with a tablespoon of urn cleaner for each pot and let soak over nite. wash and rinse thoroughly prior to use.

I have a nespresso Latissima with auto milk frothier & the plastic tube which draws the milk tastes & smells like curdled milk. I can taste it in the coffee as well.


Try running 1/5th vinegar and 4/5 water through the frothing device. This will clean out any gunk that might have clogged the interior

My steamer wand has an awful odor everytime I try to steam something! I have cleaned it (even soaked in baking soda!) and the problem won't stop. Anyone else have this problem?


This is a common problem for the commercial espresso machines, Due to lack of cleaning of the steam wand after they finish frothing milk.
The milk flows back to the boiler and the water gets contaminated with milk.

Does the steam smells like rotten milk? If the answer is yes, you have contaminated water and or lines.
If not may be there is a lot of IRON in the water.

Run a descale cycle.

After you are done frothing milk, wipe the steam wand with a wet towel and open the steam valve for 2 seconds, close it and that's it.

When I steam my milk it tastes burnt and there is a strong burning odor.


The boiler needs to be cleaned, it is contaminated with milk. Check the water from the tea spicket, if it smells funny or it is discolored then the boiler is contaminated, if not then the problem is at the steam wand and steam valve.

Coffee tastes burnt/No steam for froth


I don't know about the burning business but I had the same problem with the steam wand. the first thing I did to solve this problem was to take small object like a needle or safety pen and insert it into the base of the steam wand. (I have feeling that most problems related to the steaming wand are due to deposits clogging the wand itself.) After I cleared out as best I could I used vinegar and water to help remove any calcium deposits. Sure enough, after inserting the needle into the wand steam began to flow again.
