I turn the machine on wait for the green light and make a shoot however the shoot is not hot its only luke warm, the steamer works fine and the if I run the machine with out the thing that holds the espresso it seems like the waters kind of warm.
If the READY light is turning ON and the water is only luke warm, then it sounds like a temperature sensor problem. The sensor might be affected by scale, or it might be damaged or out of tolerance. Try to get a reading of the water temperature as it is, and then descale your machine thoroughly and see if the temperature gets hotter. If it does, then scale is probably the problem. If it doesn't then you will need to get the machine checked by someone who knows about espresso machines. If you can't find a repair shop, ask your local Starbucks who does the repair and maintenance of their machines and take your machine to them.

Circuit Priming When the machine operates for the first time and when all the water has been dispensed, the machine circuit needs priming. In this case, the 4 buttons of the control panel will flash at the same time. • Press the ON/OFF button . The 4 buttons will flash. • Place a container under the cappuccinatore. • Open the "hot water/steam" knob by turning it anticlockwise. • Press the hot water button. • Wait for water dispensing to stop. • Close the "hot water/steam" knob by turning it clockwise. Remove the container. When the first priming ends, the warming up starts. Before brewing coffee, water and steam, please wait for lights 15 and 16 to be permanently on. The machine is now ready to brew coffee and dispense steam. Please see related sections for operating details. Note: if priming is not completed, the 4 buttons will keep on fl ashing. The machine cannot be used.
Hi,The problem is the keep warm element. The reason, your pot perc's and it gets hot near the thermo, the thermo turns off the main element. The keep warm element is not on so after a small amount of time the water cools and the thermo turns the main element back on again, thus making the water hot. The K W element is supposed to be on all the time the pot is plugged in, it is instrumental in perking the first brew making it really hot, the thermo turns off the main element and the K W element keeps the water hot. The K M element is very a easy fix. Thanks and please ask if you need more help. Ron For the part go to repairshack.com

The K W element is supposed to be on all the time the pot is plugged in, it is instrumental in perking the first brew making it really hot, the thermo turns off the main element and the K W element keeps the water hot. The K M element is very a easy fix, it is the small looking white rope that runs around the bottom of the pot. You have 1-nut and 1- screw to remove. When removing the screw from the main element you must hold the (leg) that the K M element is screwed to so it does not bend and brake off. Take your time and be firm with the pressure you apply to the screw, while holding it with a pliers. Contact me firstname.lastname@example.org Good luck Ron
You can't manually reset. The machine will have to do it. I had the same problem, two green flashing lights with one red (water) all 3 would just keep flashing and not turn solid. No coffee can be made or hot water. I could not pump prime. The problem was the steam wand was blocked with old milk residue. It needs unblocking or you will never pump prime. I could not unscrew the steam wand...so I let it sink in a glass full of hot water for a few minutes and then turned the water knob counter clockwise to push out the softened residue. After that, everything was good. When water started flowing out of the steam wand, the red light turned off and the green lights turned solid. The obvious answer to why you can't pump prime is there is a blockage somewhere and best to start with the steam wand. --Mabada
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.
You're supposed to wait for the blinking light to go solid before attempting to steam your milk!
Until then, the water isn't hot enough (it's at coffee-brewing temp, not steaming temp) to produce steam.
Further, after steaming, the water is too hot for coffee's correct brewing temp, and the light again blinks until it has cooled down enough, if you care.
