Does anyone have some ideas why this might happen?  I think the ready to brew light is not coming on, either (it's been a while since I packed up the machine).  Wondering if it might be worth getting a new thermostat and/or boiler?  Any ideas are appreciated!

Hi Kelley, welcome to CG.

You might start by looking inside the machine and making sure that the wiring to the thermostats and switches are intact and that nothing is loose or off.  You may need to do some checking with a volt meter. Don't start by spending money :)

Before you spend any money on that machine, except for a proven thermostat defect, post back.  The EC155 is very similar to the 702 internally, probably identical except for any newer parts.  You can get a new EC155 which would be better than repair.  That said, you might want to consider options and your budget before investing in Delonghi.  I used an EC 701 for a few years before I knew better :)

If I read it correctly, you can get the EC155 from Amazon for $69.99, and IIRC, Best Buy would locally match that.  Again, not recommending Delonghi however :)
