Introduction

After two years of use the whisk of our milk frother turned only slowly. It could be stopped with one finger. I found an instruction that suggested to change the polarity of the motor by exchanging the connection cables. This worked with our two milk frothers.

    • On one side of the plug you see two slots. You can see the cable shoes in there.

    • With something pointed (eg. watchmaker's screwdriver) you press in one slot to open the cable shoe's locking catch. At the same time you pull on the cable.

    • Do the same with the second cable.

    • Exchange the position of the cables and push the cable shoes back in the plug.

    • The milk frother is re-assambled in reverse order.

    • Plug in the device, fill in some liquid an press the "cold foam" button. Now the motor should turn again. At the first time it might be necessary to give a little push by hand. The motor speed increases fast and remains.

Bei unserem bauähnlichen Milchschäumer Petra ließ sich das gleiche Problem genauso beheben.
