Question about Gaggia Titanium Espresso Machine
With the machine on and functioning normally otherwise, I go to turn the steam valve open to heat the milk and nothing happens. It makes no sound either. Any ideas?
In order to produce steam, the steam knob has to activate a "working" microswitch when you turn it. If this microswitch has malfunctioned, the pump will not activate.

Sounds more like the ring clip has come off. Should be easy to replace with a screw driver and pair of pliers.
You'll need to remove the mains cable. Remove the water tank, take out the "bypass" hopper (screws) and remove the bean hopper (screws, make sure you get as many beans out as possible first!) then two more screws at the back hold the hotplate on top. Once you've lifted the hotplate detach the power to the hotplate heater element (put some tape on the wire connector and stick it so it doesn't get lost inside).
Other side of steam knob has a spring clip holding it onto a valve assembly (I had to replace this resin valve with a new one, the new one sent was metal and a lot better constructed).

Here is what I have found to correct the Ventilate issue, go to the front panel and say yes to factory settings.push the hot water button and open and close steam knob until hot water starts flowng,let it drain in the sink and fill the bin 3 or 4 times . this will get out the air bubbles and you will be able to make coffee and steam milk,worked for me.

Make sure your milk frother is not blocked.
