Subject: DeLonghi Magnifica no longer steaming milk?
 

I've had my EAM3400 machine for going on 5 years.  It's probably seen over a hundred lbs of beans without any issues.  Recently, when I go to steam milk, it just foams up the milk, but never really gets the milk up to temperature unless I keep scooping out the foam (because it quickly wants to overflow it from the pitcher).  What does this mean?  Is the steamer gone on it?  Worth repair? I'm somewhat handy, but don't know too much about how these machines work - is this something I can fix?  Thanks in advance!

Sounds like scale build up.  Can you descale these machines? (I don't have any experience with them).
