Certainly, try to clean it first, but replacement isn’t a tough job either. Read the guides on Ifixit, and search on youtube videos. Parts are pretty common on Ebay, sometimes you can buy a machine just for parts pretty cheap. Just chop shop out a boiler and reinstall it. Sometimes you get REALLY lucky. I bought a brand new Starbucks Barista SN006, in the box, for $150. I almost fainted when I saw it. Now my old one is is slowly but surely being repaired and cleaned, and my wife isn’t bugging me to fix it!
crwdns2890332:0Pump works, briefly, then gets quieter, doesn't pumpcrwdne2890332:0Hi, I was having the same problem. My machine was purchased in 2004, and I must admit I took poor care of it, until the last couple of years. I found the solution, between this site and Youtube. A new pump solved the problem (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00B8K...). Replacement is fairly easy, takes about 30 minutes, all you need are Phillips screwdriver and a couple of metric wrenches (10 and 12mm). One video I found was not very helpful, about half of it was useless (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMVy6l7f...) but it at least familiarizes you with the internal workings.
