This could be a simple "switching" problem or the boiler may have failed and require replacing?

I have an Ariete coffee machine the steamer takes along time to heat up not much steam coming out


if the steamer is not been in use for a ling time is possible tha the valve got stuck. You can try to open and close the steam handle repeating that very often while steam get out. if it does not work try to make a cicle of water mixed with salt, just start the coffe maker, warm up and start WITHOUT COFFEE, you repeat that several time to obtain clean water from the fiter, warm up for steam function and start to open-close the steam handle on the right of the coffee maker body. If that doese not helps you must change or repair the rubinet-valve of steamer, apply to assistence.

The steamer dosen't work at all. When the knob is


First you should remove the end tip of the steam hose and try to clean the steam holes with a pin. The steam should come frealy withou the end tip. If not then you shoul desasemble the steam tap , clean it and put it back together. The problem is only caused by dry milk or milk with chocolate. Even if you manage to have some steam then the problem can be solve by using the steamer warming just water in a glass and leave it all nigh long inside the boiling water in glass this will meld the dirt and will gos away.

Steamer on gaggia titanium


a. Possible air in the system. Switch to hot water iso steam, let warm water pas for a minute by turning the knob fully open. Stop tapping warm water (close the knob) and switch the machine to steam iso water. Try to get the steam by fully opening the knob (pump should start running). 
b. Solidified milk in the system blocking internal tubes. To avoid this always purge the system (shortly open the steam to an empty cup or a towel) after you steamed milk to avoid milk being sucked back into the system due to condensation of steam (this creates a vacuum and reverse flow). To resolve the blocked tubing: clean the nozzle and try flushing the system (tapping warm water).

Steam frother


1. Pour in vinegar instead of water. 2. Bring vinegar to a boil but do not run it through the machine. 3. Turn off machine for the machine for an hour. 4. Remove sheath from the steamer. 5. Place tip of steamer into large mug of cold water. 6. Turn espresso machine on and allow vinegar to run through steamer.
Optional: Before starting the process, unbend a paperclip or metal hook (for hanging holiday ornaments) and use it to clear the steamer orifice.
It may take the vinegar a little while to dissolve and loosen the blockage. If the process does not work the first time time, try again later and allow the warm vinegar to sit in the machine longer.
