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.

A.o. smith powerhouse powershot nat gas hot water heater 40000 btu the vent hasnt stopped running for 3 days and the water is luke warm at best

If the vent has been running for 3 days, is there fire in the hole? I suspect there is a lot more to this story. If there is fire in the hole, turn off gas and call someone before you get killed. Seriously.

The first problem we noticed is the coffee is not as hot as it used to be, but it was still strong enough. Now the unit perks for about 10 min for a full pot, the light comes on....but the coffe is weak...

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

Hot water for only 5 to tn minutes then have to wait.

You have an element gone of your hot water is running out quick and having to wait for it to heat up again. Best thing to do is to go ahead and replace both of them.
If you replace just one it will work the old one till it causes it to go. Most of the time if the top element is good you will get a blast of hot water and then it will get cold. With the bottom element only working it will be luke warm water for a while then go cold.
If you need a guide how to replace them got to the link below for further information. It will guide you through trouble shooting your heater.

Mira Sport shower running luke warm

Your hot water must come from your coil in boiler and not from a seperate hot water heater - more then likely furnace hasn't been on for heating your house nor has it been on for any draw of hot water. You have to wait till it goes on and brings the water temperature up to your setting or get a hot water tank put in or a new type wall mounted gas instant hot water unit.

Luke warm water on sanitize cycle, why?

remove lower kick panel and check wire connections to heater. 2 wires go to heater terminals and a harness connector goes to temp sensor in middle of heat terminals. may be green ground connection on another term. use multimeter and check resistence on heater. during cycle heater will take time to heat.
