Question about ECM Giotto Espresso Machine
Sounds like the boiler tank isn't full.
filling the reservoir,
open the steam valve and turn on the coffee espresso pump at the same time. This should pull water thru the system and then you can shut off and shut the valve to the steam.
Then let the machine cycle up to operation temp.

The pressostat can be full of scale. You can remove it when the machine is cold descale it and also use a litle lubricate so the part can move more easily. You might need a new mebrane since it might have be damage but if you don't have you can cut a plastic the same round shape of the mebrane and put the both back again so that no steam will escape from the mabrane.
Thanks and take care

I am having a similar problem. Doesn't happen all the time, just sometimes. My research has led me to believe it might be the vacuum breaker valve. I am going to order a new one here:
I'll replace mine & post if it fixes it.
