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,

Turns off after heating up once the coffee button has been pressed

Most likely faulty power supply very similar problem to no steam
Be very careful as the powersupply is directly connected to the mains
You can get a replacement capacitor 1.5uf 275VAC from radio Spares online

  1. I've had same problem twice
    Once Breville fixed under duress as just out of warranty and no parts

    Last week same problem.
    I tracked problem down to the big yellow 1.5uf 280v capacitor on the power supply board.
    It wasn't passing enough current
    when plugged in the 24volts and 5 volts were OK
    when pressing the On button the Heater relay calls and on light flashes the 24 volt drops to 11volts and the 5v to 4v
  2. Once up to heat the 24 voltage rises to 14v
    when you press the steam button there the 14vis no enough to call the heater relay and the seam light just keeps flashing.
    I replaced the faulty capacitor and all good coffee and steam

Any other solutions for screen blackout for acer aspire one?.. id try to use the press hold fn and f2 but its not working at all?..can you help me to fix this problem?..ill wait for your response sir/madam...

Hi and welcome to fixya!

First thing you do for this is shut down the machine by just pressing and holding the power button for about 5 seconds.

Then unplugged the charger and take out the battery.
Next is press and hold the power button again for 10 seconds, without the charger and battery this time.

Put the battery back in and the charger and turn on the machine normally. This should solve the issue 95% of the time. If it does not, time to contact the warranty support for Acer.

Hope this helps!

My Breville fresca BES860 cleaning cycle won't start - I hold the three buttons in for 3 seconds and nothing happens. The light has been on for days, and I haven't been able to resolve the issue. Any...

From the model number I guess that you're in Australia? I'd recommend calling Breville themselves on 1300 139798 or speaking to someone at a Breville Service Centre.

Also, is the machine under warranty? I'm pretty sure that's a reasonably new model. Check your receipt and refer to as it has 12 months warranty.

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!
