My best advice is to contact the support for the instrument. Avoid DIY without expert guidance as the potential for damage to the precision instrument exists which could result in costly repair or replacement.

There are a variety of brands/models of autoclaves and your model is not adequately identified. There are ES models of an autoclave of a particular brand but I have no knowledge of their designation system. A search of an autoclave manual did not reveal an "es" error code. Why not contact technical support or the sales forces of the manufacturer with the query?
