Question about Breville Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
This is my second of this model, the first experienced a similar problem and was replaced under warranty. Basically, the steam wand will only generate steam for 5-10 seconds, then reverts to squirts of water with each pump. Similarly, brewing an espresso will work fine, but brewing a second or third will result in cold water coming through the brew head. Even when restarting the steam cycle, it doesn't reheat the thermoblock even though the heating light comes on, and continues to spit cold water with each pump. I have to unplug the machine to reset it in order to the first hot shot out of the machine. I disassembled the thermoblock and found some calcification, but not a huge amount. The pump moves water through the wand and brew head quickly, it just doesn't keep the stream hot. What would explain the thermoblock heating properly, then not staying hot?

The only thing that comes to mind is that the machine is in steam/hot water mode. Unless you replace the switch and turn off the steam light so that it sends the water to the correct location. Also you might want to remove the shower screen and make sure it is clean.
