Question about Breville ESP8XL Espresso Machine

1 Answer

I have a Breville ESP6 Espresso Machine which needs a new steamer wand. The seal on the screw in part at end has gone and the thread is gone too. Water spurts out between the wand and the screw in knob - resulting in a mess and not as good froth. Can I get a whole new wand. It seems easy enough to replace - just screwed in.

The wand is relatively easy to remove. Thing is whether you have the right tools. If you can find stubby phillips and flat screw drivers, the job will be much easier.

You first have to remove the trim that surrounds the pod and where it covers part of the wand.

The wand is held down by a flat-headed short screw. It might take a few tries to remove this screw due to calcification over the years. Once removed, the wand should just slight out. Check if the o-rings need to be replaced as well.

I bougth a new Breville ESP6X and It did not comes with the user guide. How I can get it?


If you are in the USA visit http://brevilleusasupport.com/ and search for the manual there.

If you are in another country then start at the main breville site, www.breville.com and then go to your country site from there. Search for Support, its sometimes at the bottom of the main screens.

They have a feature called "The Living Manuals" where they provide manuals for products.

Hope you can find yours.

Hello, i have the ranchilio home espresso machine, sylvia. the steamer is not working on it, slowly got worse in the last two weeks and is now not working at all. this has happened before. I believe it is...


Yes it is easy to replace, but first check the end of the steam wand make sure the holes are not blocked, If you open the steam valve and the wand is hot it is because of blockage, if you only get warm water and no steam then the thermostat is gone.

Starbucks sirena won't heat up; blue light flashing-brand new


johnshami had this solution on another post, and it worked for us:
  1. make sure the water in the tank is stone cold -- which is a no brainer since it will not heat h2o unless it's primed.
  2. take off steamer wand cover, turn the steamer knob clockwise till pump starts.
  3. then s*ck (as you would on a straw, with your lips sealed around the end of the steamer wand) the tip of the end of the metal tip hard until pump stops
  4. may need to do it a couple of times. yes this seems crazy, but it works! you are flushing out the vapor lock in the pump.

The machine lights don't turn on


sounds like you need to prime the machine. check the manual for those instructions. if (like us) nothing happens, then read on:

johnshami had this solution on another post, and it worked for us when the manual's instructions to "prime" the machine resulted in no water leaving the tank to enter the machine:
  1. make sure the water in the tank is stone cold -- which is a no brainer since it will not heat h2o unless it's primed.
  2. take off steamer wand cover, turn the steamer knob clockwise till pump starts.
  3. then s*ck (as you would on a straw, with your lips sealed around the end of the steamer wand) the tip of the end of the metal tip hard until pump stops

The blue light is blinking, the water tank is full, but the water isn't heating up at all. should we return it? Or is there something that we missed? We followed the instructions and are getting no where.

No steam or pump noise


get a used starbucks barista by saeco for a couple hundred...you'll be pleased. (know i am-and i only paid $25 for my year old breville esp8xl POS). verify it works-it will probably last longer & perform better. if inclined/capable, maybe you can replace the pump yourself (a new one's prob in $35-$40 range; if more, scrap the machine or sell it "as is" for parts & put the money toward a better machine. good luck!

I have a expresso machine ESP6. it is not letting out enough steam or frothing milk. what's the problem and how to fix it?


The steaming wand's tip gets gunked up with milk so make sure to clear that with a needle first. Make sure the machine is fully heated before using the stream function (should have an indicator light). Typically this model will expel water first, then a low pressure steam. After about 30 - 40 seconds it should produce meduim pressure steam. Make sure the pump is making the proper clunk, clunk sound or it could be failing. Also, the steam wand arm may be obstructed and descaler solution will have to be used to remove the deposits. Hope this helps.

Breville espresso machine 800 ES


I have the same problem. It appears to be caused by a worn steam wand gasket that's inside the steam wand assembly which can be unscrewed from the Breville machine. This was confirmed by the folks at Breville. They referred me to www.thegourmetdepotco.com. That website does not sell the steam wand gasket separately. They sell "Frother Assembly MOdel #800ESXL-250" for $14.95. With tax ($1.42) and shipping via USPS ($5.65), the total is $22.02. A very high price for the failure of a simple plastic washer, but it beats buying a new machine!
