I have tried over and over to make a espresso or latte, but, my coffee comes out luke warm even though I let it heat up 3 minutes. I have read instructions over and over and just am frustrated. I know I am missing a step or part. Please help me I am dying for a latte.

I had this problem with my Ena 3. The difference was that water was actually passing through the nozzle, but when I turned the dial back to the coffee symbol it would just tell me to open the tap again.
The solution was simple thanks to bergend's post, although I'd never have thought of it independently. I emptied the water tank and filled it back up with luke warm water instead of the cold water I had been using. After the first "system filling" round, the machine continued with the setup program fine.
So, to others with this problem: don't use too cold water in the tank for the first setup, even though the manual tells you to. Luke warm works great.
Your heating element is toast! If you want to risk taking it apart, there is a fuse inside that can be replaced and if the fuse is still in working order, (test it using a meter), the heating element is dying. There is nothing else to do, but buy a new coffee maker.
I've just taken delivery of an S9 and my lattes were lukewarm too. What you have to do is move the dial on the steamer to the 3 o clock position. See http://cdn2.libsyn.com/coffeegeek/jura_frothxpress.mov?nvb=20081110133816&nva=20081111133816&t=018ee7ad85c33f422c6a5 . Latte I just made was piping hot. If that doesn't fix it, try the Products settings. If still lukewarm I think you should contact your dealer, maybe you have a duff machine.
