According to the instruction manual, you are supposed to put the little rubber insert into the portafilter, and a tablet in the center. Then, turn the machine off. Simultaneously, hold the one shot, two shot and power buttons fro 3 seconds. The cleaning cycle is supposed to last for 5 minutes, and then the machine is supposed to beep, indicating that it's finished. Finally, rinse the portafilter thoroughly. HOWEVER, I can't get the 5 minute cleaning cycle to work properly... anyone have success with this?

The hose going from the tank to the spout may have a split or not be seated correctly. Check that.

These are available on line. Just search Breville, then enter the model number, and it should provide you with all the info you need.

The grind is too coarse or the tamping is too light, or a combination thereof. Use some bathroom scales to get your tamping pressure right and then adjust the grind accordingly.

Just had this replaced by a electronics repairer. There are two screws needed to be removed to take the top off first. One under the tamper, the other near the steam wand. Once they're out (and after removing the 6 out of the back) apparently you can take the back off to replace the water seal :)
