Question about Jura Capresso Impressa Z5 Espresso/Coffee Maker
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.

I had a similar problem with the SHORT foaming nozzle. The long one always worked. I suspect it has something to do with rubber seals allowing a vacuum to form. Try both nozzles.
If neither one works, blast some hot water in the nozzle assembly with your faucet.
If nothing, purge steam from the nozzle for 15-20 seconds before trying to run milk.
If nothing, pour the milk into a plastic cup and try from that.
If nothing, squeeze the rubber hose to prevent milk from traveling up and see if you can form a small vacuum inside the hose.
These tricks sometimes worked for me. After all that, just get the nozzle assembly replaced. It takes FOREVER to get them on the phone, but they're quick after that.
