I have the same problem. I think it's a factory defect. The descale button doesn't work, and it's never been descaled. I just leave vinegar in the machine overnight and run water to rinse it the next day. Vinegar is just dilute acetic acid. Citric acid works better than vinegar, but it's harder to find. It doesn't have the smell that vinegar does.

you probably have a problem with the flowmeter (one circular white, one hose from the tank enters the pump). You must remove the back cover of the machine and see them at the bottom left.
allow it to be opened by spraying and cleaning it.
Good luck

Not clear if loss of steam to milk dispenser or milk dispenser itself clogged.

Try descaling again. Try running the vinegar through tbe machine about 1/2. Then stop tbe machine and allow additional time for the vinegar to work.

Also run a clean cycle using vinegar.

Also try disassembling the milk dispenser and clean manually.

to me the pipe is blocked there is a tool to use to clean this pipe out, hard deposits in the water can block the steam pipe and the tool is a thin bendy wire that you put up the pipe to clean the pipe line out. i would think they sell this pipe in most out lets for coffee makers. check for coffee steam pipe cleaner.
