If there is no heat at all and these lights are showing, this could well be that the generator has blown (sometimes this will cause your home's circuit breaker/fuse to trip at the same time). It will probably need professional help! To repair this at an authorised service centre (June 2009) cost me $170 AUD for a replacement generator + labour (translates to about $135 USD).

The general alarm message after the machine taking too long to heat up -in deed shows a problem to reach the correct temperature.
So there are a number of possible causes:
the 2 heaters (water/steam) the NTCs(temperature control sensors)
the tempearature overheat-fuses. In my case it was the (water-)heater itself. Be sure to unplug the machine from power supply befor opening!!!
First test then-do the heaters warm up??.....carefull if they do-they are hot!!! If one of them doesn´t warm up- Unplug again!...and then measure the resistance of this heater-If the heater is ok,it should show around 50-58 ohms. If it shows indefinite resistance the heater is broken and you have to exchange it.
In case of both the heaters showing the~50ohms you will have to check the thermal resistors/fuse/NTC.
For me the two forums below wer of great help for me...of course they are in german...but didn´t you wish to learn a foreuage anyway???
Good luck and best regards

From page 21 of the owner's manual: Message: general alarm. Meaning: The inside of the appliance is very dirty. What to do: Clean the inside of the appliance thoroughly, as described in section 15. If the message is still displayed after cleaning, contact a service center.
Hope that all your machine needs is a thorough cleaning; it's not that difficult.

Have you ever wondered, 'how do I descale my
expresso machine?' First lets us understand what is exactly is scaling.
The build up of minerals inside the hot parts of your coffee machine or
espresso machine is commonly called lime scale. When lime scale
builds up inside the Espresso machine, it slows down the water flow,
reduces the boiler capacity and can prevent your coffee machine from
working properly. To keep your Espresso machine operational at full
order, it is important to descale it every three months. The time
intervals between descaling depend upon many factors. Quality of your
water and the amount of water running through the machine are the two
main factors that decide the frequency at which you should descale your
Espresso machine. The more you your machine, more often should you
descale it. In some cities, in conjunction with a water filter you can
use your coffee machine for a year or more without descaling at all. If
you use less water by drinking espressos you'll need to descale less
often than if you make cappuccinos.
Descaling products are widely available from stores
that sell coffeemakers and espresso machines. Be sure that the product
you buy to descale your Espresso machine is intended for this specific
use only. Before you descale your Espresso machine, always unplug it and
make sure that it is cold. Also, never immerse the appliance in water
and nor should you use abrasive cleaning products
or scouring materials on any part of your Expresso machine. In case
your Espresso machine does not come with a instruction guide or booklet,
then use a proper citric acid based descaling solution designed for
espresso machines. This should be mixed and prepared as per the
instructions on the bottle or packet. Once your Espresso machine has
been descaled properly you would not be left wondering, 'how do I
descale my expresso machine?', treat yourself to a great cup of coffee.
