    Check the little circlips at the base of each button's shaft. then the mechanism will come off the faceplate. Be extra careful in noticing where the temperature control shaft and the the table tilt controls attach -- at both ends. ;-)

I love this grill. It heats fast, it gets to 400F, it is large, it can open up flat. From what other people say, the switch might be a weak point. Mine got troublesome and then seized after almost 7 years of use. Everything else works like the first day so I am not really complaining and am keeping my fingers crossed I can keep this machine for many years to come.

The main riddle to opening this one is getting the 3 buttons off. It IS stubborn.
The part diagram I found here was helpful, although it doesn't show all the little screws that are behind the buttons: http://www.ereplacementparts.com/breville-800grxl-diecast-indoor-bbq-and-grill-parts-c-116052_116056_116067.html . This site is also useful if you need to buy a part online.

The buttons are glued on with a strong glue. It took a lot of effort to ''carefully'' pry them off.
Do put a thin steel plate (the edge of a paint scraper?) between the face of the machine and your screwdriver, otherwise you might be left with a few marks on the faceplate.
Do try to pry all around the buttons, otherwise they will not come off and you might break one. The marks on the edge of the buttons will be hidden by the faceplace once the machine is put back together, but not the ones on the faceplate.

It's normal that the shaft stays on the middle button, it's made to take apart this way.
Personally, I bought a new generic switch at a local professional electronic supplies store. Cost me 1.25$CAN. You need a 2 prongs, 20A 125VAC - 16A 250VAC switch, that can fit into the 1 1/16" x 1/2" hole.

Everything in that machine is attached very strongly, it sure looks like Breville doesn't want their wares to fall apart on their own.
It is a fairly complex machine for a simple grill. If you are not used to take apart appliances, do be on your gards for the location and positionning the little shafts and mechanisms you will fing behind the faceplate.
Do get the switch beforehand if you can and have it on hand to rebuild the machine right away if you are the type to have doubts about remembering where everything attaches correctly and which screw goes where, if some time passes between the gutting of the thing and putting it back together.

It would be a shame to have such a nice machine land in the dumpster for lack of a 1$ switch.

I was advised to pull off carefully the glued-on knobs to find screws underneath.

I had tried pulling the knobs before posting the question and found them very firmly connected.

I was as careful as I could be but the contact glue was too strong for the tensile strength of the shaft to the temperature control. Also it pulled the shaft off the bell-timer but that went back on OK.

Watch out for the connection to the power-on display led. The leads break off the led easily.

Once you take it apart (the toughest part) you can probably get an equivalent switch from your local professional electronic parts store for just the little changein your pocket.
Otherwise, you can try this: http://www.ereplacementparts.com/breville-800grxl-diecast-indoor-bbq-and-grill-parts-c-116052_116056_116067.html

How do I get my panini maker clean again


From the Owners Manual:

Before cleaning, switch the grill off at the on/off button, switch off at the power outlet and unplug. Allow your Professional Grill to cool before cleaning. The appliance is easier to clean when slightly warm. Always clean your Professional Grill after each use to prevent a build up of baked-on foods. Wipe cooking plates with a soft cloth to remove food residue. For baked on food residue squeeze some warm water mixed with detergent over the food residue then clean with a non abrasive plastic scouring pad.

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 http://www.breville.com.au/care_agentsearch.asp

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

Whats a fuse for inside the grill ? and if i cut it out what will it blow


HI Izzyt,


You don't want to cut any fuses out of an appliance - - they are for safety, and prevent worse things from happening (like burning down your house instead of burning your dinner).
