When it says to ventilate, it is asking you to prime the pump. Put acup
under the panarello wand ( the steamer/frother) to catch thedischarged
water and press the hot water button (upper left button onmy machine).
Wait until air stops coming out with the water, usually3-5 ounces, and
then press the hot water button again.
You machine is now ventilated (primed) and should be ready to go.

Check the end of the steam nozzle, make sure it is not blocked. If not then with the knob open for hot water cycle push in on the knob if that works then the tap rod assemble or the steam valve needs to be replaced.

Try this run the hot water cycle for a few seconds, it that works, try steaming if you get the message again clear it by running the hot water cycle and then go to steaming, this time push in on the knob after you open it, it that works, then the tap rod or the valve assembly needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: ventilate message
Push the water button (the one with the drops) and that will clear the message. The pump slows to much and the flow meter doesn't spin fast enough, the computer thinks the pump is bad. If your coffee is taking too long to brew, then you grind is too fine. Move the lever to a larger #.
