If descaling fails you will need to dismantle the steam valve and clean out the build up from the needle and seat.
Good luck.

Hi,

I think your steam valve is the problem, there are a little pin in the steam valve that can hang up. Try to descale your machine and see if that help.

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.

How strong should the output for the cappucino/ latte steamer? Mine just sort of dribbles the steamed milk. Thanks


When steaming the milk/cream make sure to hold the rubber nozzle to the very bottom of the cup and also make sure you are leaving enough water to produce the steam after brewing a cup of espresso. Also you'll want to check the breather tube that sticks up from the nozzle and make sure it is free of buildup.When the steamer is operating correctly it should produce a loud growling sound.

No steam pressure with little to no water/steam


Remove the steam wand and inside you will find a small teflon like tube at the top, throw that away and run water through the wand to make sure it is clear then re-assemble in machine and test.

Leaking water from steamer


For the grouphead check the basket there might be a slight bump around the edge that is preventing it from making a good seal when it contacts the gasket in the head. If the Double works fine then the gasket is not the problem.
For the steam wand try flushing wand for 3 seconds just before steaming, if that does not help with the watery milk, then the boiler is not getting hot enough to produce steam.

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.
