Question about Microwave Ovens
Well, "Ventilate"simply means that there is an air pocket caught in the system and running waterthrough it can fix the problem. When the ventilate message appears, you willneed to run hot water through your steam/hot water wand as if you were going tofill your cup with hot water. If the message does not go away after doing so,you will have to run hot water through your wand continuously into an emptycontainer (emptying one full water reservoir if not more). Once yourdisplay screen reads "Select Product, ready for use," you will beready to brew delicious coffee again.

If you already tried to ventilate by pressing the hot water button and done resetting the machine to it's factory default then probably you have a faulty "Steam Valve Cam".
You might also want to clean the steam nozzle/ steam wand it might be clogged with solidified milk. Take off the nozzle and unscrew the top part then pull off the black component, rinse it, blow through it. You can use a bent paper clip to clean out the wand.
Hope it helps.
Thank you for using Fixya.

Tips for a great answer:
In order to keep your Tassimo machine
operational at full order, it is important to descale it every three
months. Descaling products are widely available from stores that sell
coffeemakers and espresso machines. Be sure that the product you buy to
descale your Tassimo machine is intended for this specific use only. Mix
the descaling product directly in the water container, following the
instructions provided on the descaling packaging. Then replace the water
container on the machine. Place a large cup or mug on the cup stand,
insert the cleaning disc, bar code down and close the brew mechanism. As
soon as the AUTO light illuminates, press and release the start/stop
button. This will fill the brew cycle with descaling solution. Empty the
cup and let the machine stand for 15 minutes. Then open the brew
mechanism and close it again, leaving the cleaning disc in place. Repeat
this step two more times for maximum descaling effectiveness.
Discard the remaining descaling agent from the water
container, rinse it well and refill with fresh, cold water. Clean the
machine by flushing water through it in the same manner and emptying the
cup as it fills. Make sure that all the descaling solution has been
completely rinsed away, and then flush two full water containers through
the machine before using it again. Remove the cleaning disc, rinse and
refill the water container and your Tassimo machine is ready to use.
Also, before you descale your Tassimo machine, always unplug it. Also,
never immerse the appliance in water and nor should you use abrasive
cleaning products or scouring materials on any part of your Tassimo
machine. This method works for most espresso machines,
including some of these popular models: the DeLonghi Magnifica
EAM3200S, DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM4200S, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5400,
Gaggia 74507BCN Classic, Krups EA8080 Espresseria Automatic, DeLonghi
PrimaDonna ESAM6600, the BC0255 DeLonghi coffee machine and the Krups Nespresso CititZ XN 7006.
