I think there are no overlapping facets, and the geometry is not particularly complicated, so I am stuck here. Any ideas?

1) the STEP file already contains a volume, so 

Surface Loop(1) = Surface{:};
Volume(1) = {1};

in your .geo file will lead to overlapping volumes

2) The volume in the STEP file is made of surfaces that do intersect: see attached picture

So there's no hope in trying to mesh the volume as-is...
