Either the motor is getting blocked.or the motor is got faulty or the motor sensing sensor is got short or moved from its any of this case the ERROR 044 comes up in the unit. so first the motor should be checked with a meter and it should be cleaned manually and little bit oiled internally .,then reconnect the motor and check out.exactlt beside the motor there is a small mini chip circuit board fitted.from that circuit board some wires comes out and goes to the main board.where that wire goes to main board that is a sensor of the board.check out that sensor.if its faulty then that part needs replacement. you Will have to check out this with meter to confirm the exact fault.if there is low current to the motor but no blockage then its time to replace the motor. check out.keep updated.thanks.

No milk and steam dispensing from Franke Flair coffee machine

I am a Franke technician. After and possibly during the descale, because probably you haven'nt done it in a long time, steam was able to escape through the fittings as the limescale damaged the silicone rings beforehand. The steam damaged the klixxons or the thermoblock itself. You will need one of us unfortunately....

We have a Franke Evolution coffee machine and the fault 'E43 Motor Time Out' error keeps appearing. Could you please advise me what this fault is. Is it related to the upper head micro switches and if so...

E43 error motortime out refers to the brew unit not being "sensed" by the micro switch, the most common fault is the micro switch failing. other causes are the failure of the brewmotor itself, or bushes within the brewer. The micro switch is simple to replace as its obvious withits location. the other however will require the expertise of an engineer.
