SOURCE: steamed milk
I just had this same problem and solved it. It was due to a very small amount of milk residue on the inside of the black frothing unit (the one with the dial which lets you choose foam or no foam). Grip the dial firmly and pull it out while twisting. It may take a few seconds to twist and pull it out. I had a very small spec of milk residue in one of the crevices on this piece. Quick clean with a toothpick and plenty of hot water, reassembled, and it works perfectly. Hope this helps someone.

There is a pin in the cappucinator the needs to be turned slowly to create the venturi action to make it work. If you have lost the pin it won't work.

I purchased a unit second hand for my wife's birthday today. It's only 4 months old, got it home, tested it, same problem... No froth!
I've read all the posts here and all were very helpful troubleshooting guides however they did not solve the issue.
Understanding how the frothing mechanism functions is half the battle in figuring out the solution. It's a simple vacuum type system. No doubt you've read about checking the orings. This is definately the first thing to check however if this is not the reason then consider the following.
The larger of the white tubes that has the red and black oring inserts deep into its port on the tap. Why? It pushes steam past the milk pipe directly into the chrome frothing tube which causes a vacuum essentially drawing milk up it's hose creating the froth. What you can't see without further investigation is that on the underside of the tube centered between the red and black orings is a small hole. This hole is responsible for drawing the milk upwards. If this is blocked, and it probably is then no milk and no froth. Use a really small screwdriver to carefully clean the white tube both from the front and the little hole underneath.
So in conclusion. Any air leak between the red and black orings will prevent the vacuum required to draw milk up the tube and alternatively any blockage of the milk channel will also obviously prevent the flow into the frothing mechanism. Hope this helps.

I have investigated this machine on the internet and experienced users reinforced my original opinion that the machine needs cleaning.
One user who had used several of these machine professionally, said that frequent cleaning was essential. Once a month would be reasonable for the machine.
