Most likely you will see the problem when doing a single or double espressos and when just producing hot water. All these three functions work based on specific amounts of water. Most likely your flow meter is not working properly. I replaced my flow meter (< $20) and the unit now works fine.

how doomed it is depends on how handy you are...
First check if the unit has an illuminated power switch or indicator of any kind. If so check if it is lit. If it is not lit, it may be as simple as a power cord problem which can be checked by a voltmeter.
Otherwise, several things can go wrong:
1- a loose internal connection. This will require redoing the connection in a similar manner to the original.
2- a bad heater. This will require a replacement parts
3- the thermal protection is blown. This can be purchased from an electronic component store for a dollar or two and will require soldering or crimping.
All of the above requires basic electrical knowledge and a voltmeter.
If you are not handy and the unit is worth more than a 100$ then a local repair shop may be able to fix it for 40$ to 60$ (mostly labour as parts will never exceed 10$)

Testimonial: "Thank you so much however the vinager cleasing worked! I will keep this on hand in case of future use. Thanks again (:"
I HAD the same problem. I fixed it for 50 cents. It takes the removal of 4 screws (2 phillips on top, 2 long standard on bottom by the group) to remove the top to access the steam wand valve. Once the the top (and the chrome bezel) is removed, then screw out the valve counterclockwise buy ALL THE WAY until it comes out. There are 2 O-rings on the stem of the valve that wear out, Cut these off with a sharp knife, go to your local hardware store, buy 2 new ones for 50 cents, install new O-rings, and reverse the disassembly procedure. Voila, no more leaky steam valve!
