Possibly you might need the Brew Head Screen and/or filter basket cleaned of built up coffee oils. Depending on how much you use it, is best to clean it every week or couple of weeks.
Remove brew head screen and filter basket, also if you have a screw in the filter basket and soak with in a cleaner for removing oils (not descaler) at: www.urnex.com or Dezcal etc.
Or, if you have not used it in awhile you might need to prime the pump manually: Fill water tank. Turn power on. Open the steam knob all the way. Press the coffee button. Put a cup under the steam pump wand. Wait until you see a steady flow of water and no air. When you see the flow of water, close the steam knob. Turn off the coffee button. Now the machine should be ready to brew an espresso.

Sounds like the steam wand is getting blocked some where either at the metal end or in the parnello wand if you machine has one at the end of the steam wand, if both of those are clean then try this push in on the steam knob if that works then tap rod assemble or steam valve needs to be replaced, make sure to ask about the stainless steel valve instead of the plastic one.
Hi If you open the steam knob, push the middle button and you get a continuous stream of water, your pump is good. You probably have a bad 3 way valve, that needs to be replaced. Its behind the panel in the front. 2 screws and it slides to the right.
There is a test mode for the Digital and we can see if you have a bad power board.
Turn the machine off in back. Push and hold the small coffee button and the menu button (top left) at the same time and while you are holding the buttons turn the machine on. Release the buttons and you should have numbers in the display. If you can push the bottom left button and the machine makes a sound like the motor is moving, turn it off and then back on. If you don't get the message now you should really clean and lube your brew unit.
i dont know your location, but you can check this sites mentioned above:
www.oemmeci.it www.nuovaricambi.it or you can check in car parts shops at your location, you should look at parts> sealings for brake pipes.... you request the sealing from rubber named VITON or SILICON.
That kind of machine is pretty well engineered!Very solid and work on a basic deal.The problem could be just the simple on/off button.
The pump is controlled by the button and if the button don`t stop the machine still understanding you need more until you close the circuit.Sometimes coukld be also a loose wire.
In some way you are lucky because that machine have not electronic board so...less part.....less problem
if it is fine ground coffee sometimes you get this result at machines.
low pressure pump = you get water from it but only when handle is out or steam valve open.
pump with non return valve broken = in this case you get water if you open tea valve during pump works. this pump can work long even she has 1 valve damaged, only when she is empty you need to open steam valve and leave pump running while you don't get water from valve.
