No! the max temp is pre set to about 90oC to 95oC on the p.c. board. any higher temp will cause the the coffee beans/grounds to burn, thus BAD TASTING coffee , according to most experts (barrista)

No it cannot. I am not sure why you would want the water hotter. It is designed to be at the perect temperature for passing through the brew group for coffee brewing, its kind of a simple science. 
If your machine has been producing less hot coffee gradually, that marks an issue. Try descaling the boiler per the manufacturer's inscrutions even if the warning light isnt on. The other option is that the thermal fuse mounted to the boiler is bad and turns off the boiler prematurely, those cost about $15 and are simple to replace. Lastly, the boiler heating element may be 'burnt out' new boiler is $120+

Remove brew chamber, check the back of the white plastic valve make sure the chamber under it is clear of coffee grounds and water, then check the red o-ring on the brew chamber make sure there are no cracks or damaged spots.

My Saeco Caffe Charisma leaks water from the frother as it brews.


Hi
Mi=ore than likely you have something under the needle seat that is holding the needle open. Usually it is scale. Try doing a descale manually. Mix the solution and put it in the water tank. Turn machine on and then immediately open the water knob. Run about 8 oz. and turn machine off. Let stand for 10 to 15 minutes. Then repeat an 8 oz. run and turn off. Again let stand. Do this until the tank is gone. Then rinse, and test. If that does not do it, you will have to remove the top and remove the cover on the manifold that holds the needle and clean manually.
