Question about Breville ESP8XL Espresso Machine
Breville ESP6 (5yrs old) Steam wand clear but only initial puff of steam when turned on. Unit heats up and delivers through portafilter but cannot hear pump thumping! If it needs new pump is it best to throw away and purchase a new machine??
Get a used starbucks barista by saeco for a couple hundred...you'll be pleased. (know i am-and i only paid $25 for my year old breville esp8xl POS). verify it works-it will probably last longer & perform better. if inclined/capable, maybe you can replace the pump yourself (a new one's prob in $35-$40 range; if more, scrap the machine or sell it "as is" for parts & put the money toward a better machine. good luck!
