If you want to enjoy a cup of coffee or cappuccino, you turn on your Nespresso Lattissima, only for you to discover that your Milk frother is not functioning well.

I understand how annoying this can be for someone. If the Nespresso frother is not working and there is no blinking red glow, then it is most likely due to unsuitable milk

Another reason could be that the Nespresso frother isn’t obtaining the required electrical energy it needs or there could be extended dirt on the electrical segment of the Nespresso milk frother.

If you are passing through this issue, then this article is for you. Read till the end and get the desired solution you’ve been looking for.

Why is the Lattissima Milk frother Not Functioning

The Lattissima is not frothing milk because the frothing system is full of clogging with milk that is residue. These challenges can be rectified by taking the Rapid Cappuccinos System and putting all of them in water and a mild detergent. You need to check if the milk frothing control knob is set to the right frothing position or if you are not making use of vegetable milk.

When the Lattissima frother is not working, it will always make a small amount of milk when it has been turned on or sometimes it will never bring out any milk.

How to Clean the Cappuccino System of The Lattissima Frother

The Rapid Cappuccinos need to keep it apart and take the frothing system out from the Lattissima. Press the button by the side, remove the milk container, and pull the aspiration tube out from the Lattissima frothing.

Let the milk spout turn to a vertical position and press the button that is by the side again, pull the milk off to empty it and when you are through with it, put it back in its vertical position.

When you’ve disabled all the parts, wash the milk tank very well and rinse it with hot potable water of about 105 Fahrenheit to get the milk residue off. Soak all those parts in the water for half an hour with the same mild detergent water.

Avoid using hard cleaning products for it. Products like All-purpose cleaners can lead to damage to the components. Let the air inlet on the connector clean. 

Rinse all the parts with hot water. Let it dry well and still clean it with a towel or a paper towel before you reassemble the milk system again.

If you are making use of a Lattissima frother Pro or a Touch, ensure that you set the dial on top of the frothing Jug to its right position else it will not function well. 

Why is My Nespresso Lattissima One Milk Frother not Working

Some reasons why this has not been working are as follows:

The Electrical Contact is dirty 

Rime milk residue is the main form of ground that builds up in the frother over a while if you’ve held a tandem of boilovers in your Nespresso Lattissima. Once the ground starts accumulating in the frother, it will also trap moisture in it, and start spoiling the contacts of the electricity.

The Magnetic Whisk has a Gunkon it

The Milk residue will pill up on the whisk over time if you neglect to remove the whisk when brewing. This Applies to you always rinsing the milk system in between the brewing of your coffee.

When the Magnetic Whisk is Broken or Lost

The common problem here is when the little neodymium magnet drops by error and cannot be seen, this will thereby render the whisky useless. When this occurs, you can replace it with another one by buying it.

When the Wrong Milk is Use

The normal language we use is Milk, this statement is wrong. There is alternative milk you can make use of such as Oak, Soy, and Almond to mention but a few. 

Heating Element of a Burnt-out

The heating component inside the Lattissima frother is a copper ribbon on a print circuit board. This exists as a cheap (read: cost-cutting) design choice and this results in a very common fact of dismay for devices that have been in use for a long period.

The Thermocouple is Damage 

An erred thermocouple will give wrong results before the desired results, precise before the process will start. These entries say that your milk frother will be turned on, and off over and over again. This sign is to tell you that your thermocouple is bad and needs replacement.
