Problems with the milk frother on Jura coffee machines

Last Updated on October 24, 2023 by Pablo Barrantes

When your Jura coffee maker does not make froth enough or the milk splashes out of the frother every time you try to froth it, the cause may be excessive dirt in the frother, and, for obvious reasons, the solution will be to perform a thorough cleaning of the milk frother. Here are the steps to carry out a proper cleaning:

  1. The first thing to do is remove the milk tube and rinse it with running water under the faucet, ensuring that the water flows smoothly through the entire tube.
  2. Carefully remove the entire milk frother system from the coffee maker. To extract it from the machine, press both sides of the frother simultaneously.
  3. Now disassemble all the individual components of the frother and clean each one very well under running tap water. If there is still milk residue left after this, immerse the parts in a solution of cold water and a little dishwashing soap, and then wash them thoroughly under running tap water.
  4. Reassemble the frother parts and put the frother back in place.

The following video explains how to do this process:

Since not all models of coffee makers are the same, it is important that before performing this procedure, you consult the user’s manual for your particular model so that you can perform this process correctly. Here is an example of how to disassemble the frother in a Jura Giga 5 double spout coffee maker:

Now let’s see what can happen if, even after thoroughly cleaning every part of the machine and even having decalcified it, the milk frother of your Jura coffee maker still does not work; it does not require froth milk well, and instead, all you get is air or steam coming out of the machine.

This time, pay attention then to the hose that transports the milk to the frother; if it is old and worn out, it can obstruct the passage of the milk, and it will never froth; if this is the case, it will be enough to replace the hose with a new one to solve the problem, as shown in the following video:
