If your machine is more than a year old expect degradation of the silicone O rings. There are 8 small ones inside the generator. I believe they are metric and silicone. I was unable to obtain metric silicone sizes but found -008 and -010 std sizes locally they aren't exact but worked fine. Cleaned her all up and no leaks at all. BUT be advised that it was over an hour to disassemble and since I knew what I was doing only took about 15 min to reassemble it. I could take it apart again in about 15 minutes easy.

I had this problem too. The instruction manual says to turn the steam knob only half way counter-clockwise after pressing the button for 5 seconds, but you need to turn it ALL the way to have the procedure start (at least, that was the solution with my machine). Good luck!

The hot water dispensers in units such as yours are controlled by solenoids.
The unit then senses that there is something wrong, as there is no water flowing. This tells the control card that the water system needs to be primed/purged of air.
What you will need to do is access the interior of the unit and locate the solenoid that is at fault.
I am sorry but there is no information available to help you do this repair. Apparently DeLonghi wants you to take your unit to one of their authorized service centers so that they can charge you too much to fix it.
There is a consolation though. They will sell you the parts to repair it. You will have to call the 800 number in your owners manual, and know what part it is that you need.
I called them just a few minuets ago and they actually were helpful. But as I am not the owner they would not tell me the part number or anything more than they did have the part in stock. They wouldn't even tell me if it was actually a solenoid. Just that they were familiar with the part and it was in stock. You should not have the same brick wall to knock down as you are the owner of their product.
At this time DeLonghi is still maintaining propriety over the service manuals for this unit if any even exist. There are people like myself that don't need a manual to repair units like your espresso machine. The only thing I would require is access to the repair parts.
Once these units are made obsolete they may release the manuals. It depends on whether they are still bringing in repairs to their authorized centers.
In a nutshell they are not letting go if it makes them money, or they might not even have one. That would depend on if they have guys like me doing the repairs.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Evening to you
Not hot enough, do you leave it to stand with the green lights on?
By my experience the machine is best left on so everything is hot when the water passes through.
To let some time pass before you make the next cup.
And lasly to make sure that machine is clean.
