SOURCE: no froth

Make sure the small metal tube is clean as well as the holes in mounts into. The tube can be removed easily from the rubber ends and cleaned. I've had my unit for a year now and we use it ever day without this issue ever happening. I did have the constant beeping water leaking from the seat/valve problem which I fixed by opening up the unit and tightening the screws.

SOURCE: the steam wand is bubbling the milk, not frothing

THere is a little black tube inside - make sure its pushed out enough - about 1/16 an inch from the bottom. And you may have to clean it out. Happens to us too and after I do the above it works

THE FROTHER SPOUT KEEPS BLOWING OFF DURING THE FROTHING

I'm guessing this is a table top machine. If so then I take your meaning of "Blowing Off" as in turning off or running out of steam. The table top steamers usually found on home units do not have the capacity to froth large mugs like a "Venti" 20 oz cups. You will have to wait for the boiler to re-heat. It's best to heat a smaller cup of cold milk, pour the milk into the venti and make a 2nd batch again with cold milk. (It's hard to re-froth hot milk).
* check your steam wand tip if it's plugged with old milk. Soaking the wand in warm water overnite will help soften the milk which can be blow out when you make steam again. If you make a lot of milk drinks, it's a good idea to give the wand a blast of steam, then a good wipe with a damp cloth to keep milk residue off the wand.
* It's also possible your steam heater is starting to clog up. If you find that it gets slower and less steam with time then the steamer will need to be replaced. Check your warranty and call for service.
* Please update question with brand and model if you want more help.

Keurig rivo not puncturing

Just push the cup firmly down onto the lower needle before closing the "clamshell" and puncturing the lid of the K-cup also. Read the attached link, other people have this problem.
2nd link explains problem very well.

Froth

If you are getting steam out of the wand I suggest you practice and work ha and to learn how to froth up the milk. The machine does not froth up, it is the operator who does. You basically need to keep the wand just below the milk level and keep moving very slowly up and down always trying to stay below the milk level. If the container is wide you may need to swirl as you moving.

After using steamer for milk frothing the red light comes on and cannot get esspresso to brew and no more steam or hot water comes out of the frothing nozzle, the water level is fine in reservior, beans in...

The tap valve is leaking inside the machine needs new seals.If moisture is escaped and hit the printed circuit card on the tap, the machine will stop you from doing other functions.

New Rancilio Silva - steamed milk not perfect

please relay on your experience realizing that you now have new steam pipe(with different holes in the end of it and different pressure)
you will need to get use to them and get maximum quality of that steam pipe.
my advice:
  1. every time hold your hand in the bottom of milk container, so that you will prevent overheating which often gives the result you mentioned.
  2. every time you use cold milk.
