Sometimes the motor stops, heating still is in function. You can fix this in 15 min.

  • Heat up to 50°C/120°F in oven in order to make the clips inside smooth.

  • The black and the red contacts leading to the motor must be swapped. Pull the little plug. With a little screwdriver press the contact spring, pull out the cable.

Yeah, I'm curious to know why/how reversing the motor leads would have any positive influence on this fix.

Yes! Strange, I really don't know. Someone told me this trick and it worked out great.

My frother was turning a few times and then stopped. reversing the wires fixed the problem and now it runs backwards but that doesnt matter.

  • Carefully embed the thermal contact in conducting paste. Then press bottom into body until you hear a clic threee times. At last switch must be pressed in.

Und was ist den beiden Magneten die beim Öffnen rausfallen? Wie genau werden diese wieder eingebaut?

Hmm. Bei mir war das nicht so. Wohl die Antriebsmagnete, wahrscheinlich die Ursache für den Ausfall. Bei Youtube gibt es video, wo einer den Motor austauscht, da müsste man auch die Magnete sehen...

To proof the function use water.

Many thanks!

I couldn't believe reversing polarity would work, but it did!

Yes, it's a miracle. :-)

Gibt's da auch eine technische Begründung dazu, warum der bloße Tausch der Motoranschlüsse den Fehler behebt?

Ich würd's nur gerne verstehen.

Verstehen würd ichs auch gern. Vielleicht weiß jemand die Antwort - ich nicht...

Es hat super funktioniert. Ein paar kleine Macken hat er jetzt, aber er läuft!

worked for me as well, although I destroyed 2 of the 3 clips when opening - but it seems to stick ...

"backing" was the missing link to open it.

Thanks a lot!!

I used paper clips to lift the bottom (based on a video-clip by chaindriven,

Changing the polarity at the motor was easier for me than changing the pins in the connector.

sorry, forgot a remark:

check the quality and spreading of the thermal paste. It´s necessary for a good contact between heating plate and sensor.
