Are you using tap water, mineral water, etc? My first thought is perhaps there is a piece of scale inside the machine that is blocking the steam pressure. When was the last time you descaled the machine?

If the Oscar two boiler set up is similar to the original Oscar, you might have an issue with warping of the plastic junction where the autofill sensor enters the boiler. The Elektros website has a good description of the problem and the fix in their tips on the original Oscar. This warping creates an effect very similar to a non-conductive autofill sensor and results in overfilling of the boiler. Check the boiler water level and see if it is overfilled. If so, move on to check for this issue.
