Hello, I'm new to factorio, and I'm having some problems with my boilers and steam engines…

Each boiler can only make 60 steam/s, and each steam engine consumes 30 steam/s. 6 boilers would be able to supply 12 steam engines, while you have 14 steam engines. Pipes are notoriously weird, so I recommend connecting everything as directly as possible, for example just point each boiler directly into a pair of steam engines.

Boiler - Factorio Wiki

Boiler. The boiler is used to convert water into steam. When fueled it converts feed water into steam at 165°C, matching the maximum temperature of the steam engine. Boilers have 2 water connectors, allowing them to pass water through to other adjacent equipment, but only 1 steam connector for output. 1 unit of steam is produced for each unit
