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!

My milk frothier is not heating milk?

I would say the heating element has burned out, or the thermostat has failed. Given what they cost new, you may as well buy another, for which you will have a warranty. I believe repair will be uneconomical.

My Keurig Special Edition model has a ruptured heating element which is filled with a white substance packed around the inner element. Obviously, this substance has been going into our coffee. What is it...

I believe this is a ceramic filler... non conductive... takes the heat... and I dont know what the health risk is.

google digesting ceramic might give you an insight.
we know it's not asbestos... they dont use that product anymore...

Only thing else I can think of is Mica... they use that in toasters...

You can order a new heating element from the manufacture. But, the crimp connectors and the thermo-fuse may also have to be replaced. You will need the crimp tool for the crimp connectors. You will also need a meter to verify the connections.

If you take the unit to an appliance center they can service it for you. But, you may find the cost of the parts alone to not be feasible.

Coffee urn heating element not working

there are 3 or 4 componants inside that could cause the problem.
if you can use an ohm meter, check all of them for continuity.
a switch
overtemp fuse
perk control fuse, or keep warm fuse
all should read "short " or almost 0 ohms when the unit is unplugged '

Slow and low heating/temp

When a machine takes a longer time to heat up, this is often due to scale on top of the heating element, try using a descaler product, and running a descale cycle a couple of time.

If it is not a scale problem, then it is usually a faulty thermostat or a faulty element.
When it is a faulty thermostat water gets hotter than normally.

If your coffee maker is under a year old, take it to a authorized service center for free repair or replacement.If its over a year then the complete heating element assembly must be replaced.However, this part is only available to authorized service centers and is not sold to consumers.
