Try this. put the lid on the filter holder w/o the filter basket (no coffee) in it and hook it up to the machine. fill the espresso reservoir with water enough for 2 espresso cups. (by the way starbucks friend of mine advised to only use distilled water, coffee tastes much better and no calcification build up in machine) turn on espresso part of machine, wait one minute then with full glass of cold water under it, open knob to steamer wand. this forces steam through the wand after a few secs and presto - cappuccino!
good luck, worked for me this morning.

I have got argos 3 tier steamer. i dont have the user manual so i cant use it.could you help me

Steamers are very brand-specific machines (meaning that they work differently from brand to brand). I would say you should contact Argos and see if they can send you out a manual, or at least explain how the steamer works--usually they can get you the manual for free!
Good luck! :)

Gaggenau vk230 steamer doesn't work

Are you sure the child lock feature is not preventing it from working? Exactly what is the problem? Is the display blank? Is the problem that it just won't heat? Are there any error codes in the display?

I also have a VK230 that is having problems and am gaining experience with troubleshooting this steamer. Gaggenau is very difficult to work with and it is difficult to find a service company that is knowledgeable about the brand.

Are you interested in selling yours? Parts from yours may help me fix mine.

Try opening the frothing valve by turning the dial and force water through it instead of steam by pressing the middle, coffee button. You may be experiencing vapor lock. Once the water comes through the steamer valve, turn the steamer knob off and release the coffee button. Then try the steamer button with the steamer dial open. This may do the trick.

Steamer keeps shutting off.

I have the same issue, but if I use cold water (15 C, 60 F), the steamer works. Hope this help.
