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.

Having read the other reviews here, I was prepared for the cryptic "VENTILATE" message. (The manual refers to this procedure as "Loading the circuit", which doesn't help to clarify things.) Of course this refers to what Americans would call "priming" the machine. As mentioned in another review, there is a plastic hand pump supplied for priming, but that is only needed in the event that the electric pump fails to self-prime. All I had to do (following the quick-start instructions) was to select the Hot Water function; the internal pump quickly primed itself. i hope this helps Lee Davidian
HI There are 2 things that give the close door message. On the back side of the door towards the hinge, there is a pointer that activates a switch. If that pointer is broken, it won't touch the switch. Replace the door or modify the pointer to touch the switch. If the pointer is not broken, there is an adjustment inside the machine on the steam manifold mount that has 2 screws that can be loosened to move the mount forward (bringing the switch forward) so the pointer can touch the switch.
You have to buy descaling tablets from miele. You turn the knob to program mode and keep pushing the enter button until you get to descaling. You put two descaling tablets into your water reservoir and replace into unit. Put containers under the steam valve and the hot water wand. Press enter. Turn steam valve al the way on. Keep an eye on the containers. The process takes about 30 to 40 minutes. The message will appear 'Descaling finished." Turn steam selector to O and press enter. Display will read "rinse machine, fill watertank. Fill tank and return to machine. Place empty containers beneath hot water dispenser and steam nozzle again and turn steam selector fully on. Allow water to run through system completely. When process is finished, display will read "Rinsing Finished." Turn steam selector to O and press enter Program selector is on Program Mode and display will read Descaling, Timrt, unit is no descaled and ready to use. Turn program selector to on.
I read about others having the problem, and used some of their suggestions. What worked was to repeatedly hit the hot water button, open the valve, then close it when it said to. After several repetitions it worked. Since then, I have followed steaming with running about 4 ounces of hot water through, so their won't be air in the line. So far, so good--** problems today.
Typically it give the ventilate because insufficient amount of water/steam is comming through.
A clog in one of the lines is usually the problem. This causes all kinds of headaches.
There is nothing you can do so I suggest you do a search for an Authorized Saeco reapir center and have them do a service on it.
