Open Question

Temp adjust on Breville espresso thermal block machine

You described how to increase the brew temp, but how do you decrease it? I live at high altitude, and the upper temp is above the boiling point, and I would like to decrease it. Saeco sells a 90 C thermostat. Should I try to replace it, or can you suggest some way to trick it into kicking off at a lower temp? I'm not sure the Saeco part would work.  Thanks for your help.

SOURCE: breville ESP8XL Espresso Machine Cafe Roma leaking.. help please..

We had that happen and it was a crack in the black ring that holds the filter. Breville could not supply us with one but we found an OEM part in aluminum from http://www.vancouverwireedm.com/caferomadiyt.htm. We received it 1 week after ordering. It was pretty easy to replace. Our machine works fine now.

Try adjusting the grind four numbers coarser and brew a coffee, if you are getting the same result then the brew unit is clogged and the screen needs to be cleaned.

SOURCE: how do I get my breville cafe roma espresso

Same thing happened to me and I had to push down on the water tank a little more firmly. It looked like it was seated okay but I guess it needed to be pushed down more to open the little spring-loaded opening at the bottom.

I had the same problem. I opened up the back and disconnected the water hose from the spring loaded intake hose and put the hose directly into the tube and into the reservoir tank. Now it seems to **** the water in again. Not sure this is the best solution but it seems to work for now.

If someone has a better solution, I'd be happy to hear about it.

How to increase temperature on model BCM120. The coffee is not hot enough after brewing. Is it possible to increase the temperature on the thermostat.


There is no temperature adjustment for the heating element under the carafe.
The Instruction Manual says:

If coffee is too cold, machine not preheated, cups not preheated, milk not heated enough (if making a cappuccino or latté)

I own a Breville 800ESXLespresso machine which i already decalcified, that leaks from brew head and handle moves while brewing


If you've had the machine for a while, your brew head seal (gasket) is probably damaged or shrunken from age/heat and needs to be replaced. That's most likely why the filter holder moves and leaks while brewing. Breville brew head seals are rather difficult to locate, but I personally stock them and sell them at a reasonable cost. I sell lots of new and used parts for various coffee machines, but specialize in Krups. If interested in purchasing a Breville brew head seal, contact me at cowboy_romeo@yahoo.com and I'll make arrangements. I accept Paypal to make the transaction safe and secure for us both.

Grind size cannot be ajusted


On the side of the machine is a rotary dial, this adjusts the grind size. The other dial adjuster only increases or decreases the volume not the grind size.

    Temperature adjustment?


    the rear temp sensor is in charge of the brew temp. To increase the temp, lift sensor and clean out the thermal paste. To further increase, insert some fine metal mesh between sensor and boiler. The front senser is for emergency (overheat) cut off. Don't tamper! Brought to you by Jim Vonkas
