SOURCE: spout for frothing milk pops out
You can get the user manual on this link if you need it; http://www.gaggiaparos.co.uk/ Check page 6 of the download, page 12 of the manual - the spout should just pull off and push back on. If it wont, then either something needs cleaning more, something is stuck in the tube or more likely the part of the nozzle that comes off, something is broken, or you need to use a little bit more force. If it appears broken, (check in particular for a fine crack that is only visible when the nozzle is stretched i.e. when in place. This type of plastic often will close a crack enough to be near invisible when not under tension.) then you could try gluing it although i doubt if this would work. You could just put a stainless steel hose clamp around it, tighten up just enough to make the nozzle spout stay on (bit of a pain, but may work). You can contact gaggia for a replacement - in the USA; Importika 596 Fishers Station Dr. 14564, Victor, NY Mr. Salzman Ph. 585.742.5178 Fax 585.924.1499 web site: www.importika.com e-mail: email@example.com Hope this helps - if you can post back a photo or two close up of the problem area, i may have more ideas :)

SOURCE: the message ventilate is showing
As pointed out by bansheracer, "Ventilate" means you need to open the valve on the right to let out some steam from the milk steamer wand. This can also happen if you accidentally push the 'steam' button but don't actually let out any steam.
If it is stuck or needs cleaning, unscrew the metal piece and dip the plastic bit in a jug of hot water - it should resolve most of the dried milk in about 5-10 minutes.

THere is a little black tube inside - make sure its pushed out enough - about 1/16 an inch from the bottom. And you may have to clean it out. Happens to us too and after I do the above it works

Testimonial: "Thank you very much for the advice. I adjusted the black tube and the frothing is back!"
Decalcification of coffee machines boilers is better to be done with special powder for decalcification in aluminum. For making the solution from the powder you must go by instructions of manufacturer of powder. Anyway you should clean the pipe too, you get glass of water and put pipe in, steam up until it boils, than you live it for 3-4 hours. Softened milk sedimentation's will come out easily if they are present.

If the frother is warming the milk, but is not frothing, then you want to make sure the panarello is clean.
Slide the cover off the frother and check the pin hold on the top edge of the cover. If this hole is blocked the milk will not froth. Rinza is great clean to help prevent these issues. http://www.cerinicoffee.com/rinza_urnex.asp
Also recommend frothing water instead of milk to clean the frother well.
