UPDATE

machine is fixed, i ripped out the loom and completely rewired the machine over the weekend and it fired up first time perfectly.

so obviously there was a problem with the wiring causing a fault in my PCB presumably?

many thanks for all the help and replies over the last few weeks, it is very much appreciated

damn.
I was really getting excited reading this thread, because I am working on a machine with this exact same problem. And to hear that you just rewired the machine completely and can't pinpoint a fault you found in the wire harness kind of makes the thread useless as a reference.
Can anyone identify possible areas in the wiring that would cause these symptoms?
I have no intermittent operation of the motor and autofill solenoid, they are completely dead, period. Unless I brew a shot, and the keypad lights will flash after about 30 seconds unless I manually fill the boiler to satisfy the autofill probe (so it obviously works).
All other symptoms are completely identical to the OP.
