Secura Milk Frother Stopped Working!
During frothing or heating milk with your Secura milk frother, it might stop the mid-way. This is annoying. But nothing happens without reason. Several causes are responsible for such a kind of malfunction. We are going to discuss those causes here. At the same time, we will provide you with their troubleshooting.
Why Is Your Secura Milk Frother Stopped Working & What To Do?
- Power failure:
Your neighborhood or residence probably experienced a power outage. So, the power supply to your Secura milk frother was lost. Thus, the Secura milk frother stopped working.
In this case, wait for the electricity to come back.
2. Damaged power cord:
Your Secura milk frother’s power cord somehow got damaged while you were frothing or heating milk. The milk frother stopped working as a result of this.
In such a situation, examine the power cable. Make sure it hasn’t been damaged or burned. If it is damaged or burned, replace it.
3. Malfunctions of inner parts:
There are three very fundamental parts of a milk frother. They are-a heating element, a rotatable device, and a motor. If any of those parts of your Secura milk frother got broken or damaged during its operation, it wouldn’t work anymore.
In this circumstance, you can take a couple of actions. If the milk frother covers the warranty, contact the Secura milk frother customer care or take it to the retailer shop from where you have bought it.
If the warranty of your milk frother has expired, have an expert examine those parts. If s/he suggests, purchase Secure milk frother replacement parts from local or online markets for mending.
4. Overheated base:
You might have run several heating programs consecutively. For that reason, the base of your Secura milk frother got too hot. As a consequence, it stopped working during the frothing or heating of milk.
In such an instance, allow it to cool down. Start the device again after a while. This problem may continue despite the steps you have taken. Then you have two options in your hand. Call the Secura milk frother customer care if the milk frother is still under warranty. Otherwise, contact an expert to resolve this issue.
5. Overheated container:
You might have filled the container of your Secura milk frother with liquid below the minimum measurement marking. That made the container overheat. As a consequence, it ceased to operate.
Let your milk frother cool down. It may take nearly five minutes. After that, start it again.
Secura Milk Frother Not Frothing!
Your Secura milk frother may not froth milk suitably for various reasons. We will mention those here. Besides, we will discuss what probable measures you can take in such situations.
Why Is Your Secura Milk Frother Not Frothing & What To Do?
- Using milk having high fat:
Perhaps, you have poured high-fat milk for frothing in your Secura milk frother. It might be the reason that your milk frother is unable to froth properly that particular milk. High-fat milk possesses higher glycerol levels that can hinder the process of frothing. It may produce thick and creamy foam, but it won’t last much longer.
To avoid such a situation, you can choose milk that has comparatively low fat.
2. Using old milk:
Maybe, you have chosen old milk for frothing in your milk frother. If milk ages, its glycerol levels increase. That’s why your milk frother isn’t frothing.
So, we don’t recommend you use old milk for frothing in your Secura milk frother.
3. Using burned milk:
Probably, you have used burned milk to froth in your Secura milk frother. As a result, it is not frothing. When milk burns and becomes brown in color, the proteins in it break down. In such a situation, frothing becomes impossible.
Change the burned batch of milk. Allow your appliance to cool down. Take a fresh batch. Start again to froth this fresh milk. Hopefully, you will get rich and creamy foam now.
4. Inserting the wrong whisk:
Your Secura milk frother has two whisks. One is for heating milk. The other is for frothing milk (without heat) or heating or frothing milk at the same time.
When you want to froth or heat or froth milk together, you should remove the heating whisk and store it as the user manual of your milk frother indicates. Your Secura milk frother will not froth milk if you use the heating whisk instead of the frothing whisk.
Therefore, you should always ensure selecting the frothing whisk before frothing milk in your milk frother.
5. Inserting the frothing whisk improperly:
If you insert the frothing whisk improperly inside the container, your Secura milk frother won’t froth.
So, each time before frothing, insert the frothing whisk into the axle in the container of your milk frother.
6. Selecting the incorrect program:
By reading the user manual of your Secura milk frother, you surely will come to know that it has at least three programs. They are- ‘heating only’, ‘heating and frothing’, and ‘frothing without heat’. If you select the ‘heating only’ program, your Secura milk frother won’t froth.
So, choose the correct program consciously to avoid disappointment.
Secura Milk Frother Not Heating!

Why Is Your Secura Milk Frother Not Heating & What To Do?
- The motor is faulty:
Your Secura milk frother usually rotates while heating milk. If it does not rotate, you can assume that the motor of your milk frother could be broken or damaged. That’s why your milk frother is not heating.
If it happens, you need to replace the motor with a new one. Contact an expert who can help you replace it. However, if your milk frother still covers the warranty, call the Secura milk frother customer care. Alternatively, you can take it to the shop from where you have purchased it.
2. The heating element is damaged:
Your Secura milk frother won’t heat if its heating element is damaged.

Suppose you are working with your Secura milk frother to heat milk. At that same time, your house is experiencing voltage fluctuations. Due to voltage fluctuations, the heating element of your milk frother’s operational efficiency will become lower. As a consequence, the heating time will be longer than usual.
In such conditions, we don’t recommend you run your device. During voltage fluctuations, running it can cause temporary malfunction or, in extreme circumstances, permanent damage.
4. Damaged milk frother:
If the causes and troubleshooting suggestions mentioned earlier do not work, your Secura milk frother has ultimately been damaged. As a consequence, it is not heating up.
