Question about Breville ESP8XL Espresso Machine

Machine wont draw any milk through

The machine wont draw any milk up from the resevior to heat to make the coffee etc, it worked fine but i think my son has let it **** up air and we are wondering if this has damaged it. it heats up the water which in turn heats the milk as it passes it inside the machine, but when you turn the dial to go theres nothing.
its a breville instant cappucino machine.

You are not supposed to put milk in the resevoir and run it through the machine. That's likely the problem. But like most parents you will continue to blame your child until he is totally alienated and your relationshio is an empty shell.

Hi
There is a pin on top of the cappuccinator the will twist to create suction. Turn it slowly when steaming until it starts to draw milk up to foam. Then leave it. If you don't have the pin, thats your problem.

No milk or frothy milk being dispensed

Milk may not be frothed optimally. In these cases simply turn the flow regulator as shown in the figure.
Turn the regulator 2-3 times to perform a quick maintenance.
Note: If the assembled regulator is missing, replace it with the other 3 regulators provided.
There is a pump

Our PrimaDonna coffee machine doesnt appear to be takeing in any milk from the jug to make latte's or cappuciono's, is there any way of sorting this out ?


Most common cause of this problem is a blockage in the milk jug. First thing you should try is soaking the complete jug top in a quality milk line cleaner (available from specialist coffee machine retailers) for at least an hour and then rinse thoroughly. Then try running a fresh cleaning solution through the jug instaed of milk. Good luck and post again if this doesnt work.

My coffee machine will not pick up the milk from the jug. I have replaced the o ring as that is normally the cause. It only gives off steam


Hi there,
It is always difficult to diagnose without seeing the machine but it sounds to me that it is a seal somewhere further that may have gone or the pipe inside may have a small hole drawing air in. It could also be the pump not drawing the milk through etc etc...
Can you tell me where you are? I am an agent for DeLonghi based in Glasgow/UK and would be able to fix this easily and quickly for you if you could get the machine to my workshop. Please get in touch if you would require further assistance at domesticespresso@live.com

All the best

Not frothing milk


that means that the steamer is not generating enough pressure steam.

This happens either because there is not enough heat, or if you release the steam when pressure is not enough.

Very common problem with the american maid makers.

bear also in mind that Krups are not the best at frothing milk, and this is also a basic model.

If you want the best capuccino Coffee machine, buy the italian ones, Gaggia, Delonghi, Ariete etc. that are all great at this, or get a bigger Krups as a replacement like the Krups XP405040 that is also good at capuccino

Frother not working


The frother does not have a vacuum, it uses venturi pressure to draw up milk through a venturi at the top of the steam feed. The milk side is clogged from not cleaning enough. soak in boiling water for a few minutes and try to run it in steam mode for a while... if that doesnt work, a light lye solution will dissolve the milk residue clogging it. neutralize the lye with vinegar drawn through after the clog is gone.

(lye will dissolve you as well as milk... use gloves and don't put your face near it while it's working.)

There is probably something wrong with the milk frother. I would purchase a new one before having the machine serviced.
