Question about Breville Die Cast 800ESXL Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Voltage Conversion 110 to 240

I recentley moved from Houston, TX (US) (110V60HZ) to Munich Germany (240V50HZ). Rather than eBay my machine I would like to consider upgrading it to the new voltage.

    The idea of a voltage converter is one that I have considered but at 1kw a transformer is about the size of a shoe box and not what I would describe as the sort of thing I like to leave buzzing around on the kitchen counter..

    Thanks for the suggestion but I was hoping for a solution I could fit inside the 'package' - jmb

    I see that the 800ESXL is available on the EU market, is it likely that the changes needed for 240v are just on the PCB? In that case it may be worth replacing the existing 110v(?) circuit with a new one from a German supplier.

    there is one thiing that you may want to consider if you dont want to use converters or transformers, you can always bring your expresso machine to a electronics shop and explain to them that you need them to change the capacitors for your machine to become effective when plugged into a 220v. but this may be risky because the machine isnt entirely made for changing from diffenet volts,,,,

    thanks for the rating . much appreciated...

    on that particular field, i really havent tried replacing the pcb. a bit of caution though, when trying to replace the whole pcb, certain transistors may also be changed to cooincide with the new voltage required. 1 advise i can give you is that bring your machine to a service center near you to be perfectly sure if this will would work, as technician say, its better to see what your working on rather than telling someone else to do it ^_^.

My water tank is leaking SERIOUSLY into the machine and all over the counter. Is there a washer that might be missing? Is there a repair place in Houston, TX that can fix this?

There is a seal on top of the machine under the water tank. To get to it, remove the water tank, and set aside. There is a large doughnut shaped cap on top of the machine. Slip a screwdriver on the outside edge of the cap and pry up gently. When it snaps up, go to the other side of the cap and do the same. There is a black seal in the center and if you stick your finger in the center and it lifts out, it need to be replaced. Clean any residue inside the opening with a Q-tip.
When you get the new seal, it won?t slip in. Insert it at a slight angle (double lips down), then take your finger nail and run it around the bottom edge of the seal until it slips in, then push down. Snap the cap back on and your set to go.

Had the Rialto 4500 for over a year. All of a sudden the milk is not coming out properly, mostly just steam. I've cleaned the tube and container top many times ! What else can it be ?

Me too! They ordered me a new milk pitcher from Italy. Didn't work. They told me to run it through some tests using water in pitcher. Didn't work. They then told me to send it in to a Delonghi repair shop. They just told me that it was all "clogged up" and also needed a new generator. The tow are linked together. We descaled fairly regularly. Total tab: $380! OUch! Have not told them to go ahead. seaching for cheaper solutions. Let me know if you hear of any.

I believe the heating element has given it up and I need to know if there is an authorized repair center in Amarillo, TX.

Look on the web, chris322. if you don't find a repair center for Breville in your area, try other main brands like saeco, et al. they may laugh & tell you to buy a better machine; at the very least expect to spend a bit to fix it. don't rule out the possibility of a bad knob or loose wire, though. i suggest checking out ebay or craigslist. starbucks barista machines usually go for $200-$250, and if you buy one used face-to-face and it's working, it will most likely continue working for long while. try finding a heating element to replace it, and call around to electrical repair shops to see if they'll put in it for you. good luck to you!

I just picked up my repaired Saeco expresso machine. The people that work here are very professional and spent a lot of time with me showing me how to properly clean my machine. It was about a 30 minute drive east from my house near the Galleria but it was WELL worth it. I say that as I sip on some homemade Latte - yummy!

No coffee comes out - button on: It beeps

This is confusing to me. This is called priming the pump and not releasing air.

The noise you were experiencing could be from the grind of your coffee is too fine not allowing proper water flow. Remove the portafilter/handle, push brew button - and if the water comes down like rain, there is nothing wrong with the machine - it has to do with the grind, and your grinder may need a adjustment.

If you have a problem with a Pasquini machine, I'd recommend only relying on authorized Pasquini service centers.

My experience is working over 10 years at Pasquini as a master technician running the home repair sales and service center.

I stock all Pasquini parts for any service of your Pasquini espresso machines and grinders. Contact us for any of your Pasquini sales and service needs.
