Question about Breville Die Cast 800ESXL Espresso Machine

2 Answers

Running with power switch off

Hi, all,
As with others who Emailed Fixya, my Breville 800 machine, not in warranty, now turns on when plugged in without pressing the ON button. ..or with the ON button being lit. It seems not to pump water into the heat chamber, but bypasses it down the chute tube into the overflow pan, emptying the machine.

1. What can I do about this problem?

2. Is there an instruction for disassembly? I checked the available screws and can't dope out how it comes apart. ...but if I can open it up, I can at least check valving, relays (if any). ....check PC board, for output voltage, etc.

3. ...may be a programming error, but no reset procedure seems to be provided in the manual. ??

4. If faulty parts are identified, where does one obtain parts?

5. If all above isn't practical or 'iffy', where can I obtain service? ..preferably in the Phoenix area, but can ship if necessary

Thanks for any help you can give me.

It is like a Electrical Problem. Check with connections and cables. One touch conversion from closed to open mode; the one touch grill dial simplifies the transformation from press mode to Open BBQ with the engagement of an automatic reset feature on return to press mode. Try to change these modes

good luck

The other options are most likely not practical, and definitely iffy. Contact Breville first about service/replacement. If they are unable I will assist you in finding a service location in the Phoenix area. If you still have any questions or need further assistance I will be more then happy to help you further. If you have a moment please accept and rate my solution accordingly.
Thank you,

I've A Breville 800 esxl espresso machine.when making an espressothe machine starts leaking from the external slots outside coffee filter holder.what is the cause of it?

Breville brew head seals are rather difficult to locate, but I personally stock them for ESP8XL & 800ESXL machines and sell them at a reasonable cost. I sell lots of new and used parts for various coffee machines, but specialize in Krups and some Breville. If interested in purchasing a Breville brew head seal, contact me at and I'll make arrangements. I accept Paypal to make the transaction safe and secure for us both.

Have a Breville Ikon Panini Press ... doesn't work

First point of call would be to check the microtemp, which is the small heat regulating fuse inside. If that has blown, you most likely will have no power.

Otherwise call you local Breville Service Centre. If you're in Australia you'll find them at

NOTE: In Australia, this model has a Two year product guarantee. Check your receipt as it may be under warranty!

Die Cast 800ESXL Espresso Machine: Breville 800 EXL espresso machine pump not working...

I have the same problem. I used my machine for one day to test it when I had it brought into Vietnam then packed it while our house was being built.
Now it won't pump water or produce steam.

I got a used one today and i can't seem to get it to turn on, nor can I get a manual up online?

Most of the Breville 800 esxl have this problem.I strongly believe,your problem is within the electronic printed circuit board.I've searched&searched the internet.There are no internal parts for it,Unless you are into electronics,your broblem is a zener diode that is shot,Good luck.

Depends on where you live they have Breville repair centers. I have problems with my juicer (not running) for Northern Virginia the closest place is NY. Check for a list of repair centers after warranty (not many) In California plenty of centers. Hope this helps.

Power light will not come on.

There is a post with a solution for this with the title: "Machine won't turn on - no power! " - fixmebob has a good solution, but you'll need to be a little tech savvy to perform it yourself. I ended up sending mine in for repair, which ended up being about $55 because I had to ship the machine. But good news is that I'm back up and running.

Hi Mark,

I think there are a thermostat fuse inside the machine, you have to take of the top. You have two screw one in each corner where the filter holder is fitted and one under the lid with the water tank.

Hope this helps you.
