Water pours out of bottom of machine

I have a fairly new Breville Cast Iron Espresso Machine and it has been working just great! BUT now it won't pump any water thru the system at all - won't pump for frothing and won't pump to make espresso. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When I try the troubleshooting suggestions, nothing works and the water just pours out of the bottom of my machine!

    OK...........any other suggestions? My machine turns on and heats up. When I go to use Steam, it pumps but nothing happens. When I select espresso, nothing happens. When I shut it down, all the water goes out of the machine and on the counter.

    This machine is only a few months old and I don't understand what is happening.

    Also - what do you mean by "clean" the machine? I do run water out each time, before I put the espresso in.

    Thanks@

Just pull the tank about few inches say 2 inches and check whether it is pumping .
Because there is chance of problem of tank tube and air being trapped to prevent flow.

    a possible problem on the steam pump on the machine, or in the control board.

    since the machine is only a months old and it better to tell them for not voiding the warranty on the machine

I got through to the tech support at Breville and they helped me fix this problem. What they had me do was:

1)Fill the water tank all the way up

2)Turn the power on and wait until the heating light turns off.

3)without coffee in the head turn the machine to espresso mode and let it pump for a minute.

4)after a minute turn to standby for a couple seconds then turn it to steam mode for a minute.

5) after this minute is up turn it back to standby for a couple of seconds and then back to espresso mode.

6) the technician said to do this seven times, but mine started working after three or so. The tech said the fixes about 80 to 90 percent of machines with this problem.

Good Luck!

Die Cast 800ESXL Espresso Machine: Breville 800 EXL espresso machine pump not working...


I have the same problem. I used my machine for one day to test it when I had it brought into Vietnam then packed it while our house was being built.
Now it won't pump water or produce steam.
To add insult to injury Breville advice "They don't give service manuals to the public"

Although machine is turned off water pumps through to the over flow tray(power button is not pushed on )


Sounds like a check valve on the pump or the power switch is not operating properly, if off and pump is still working.

I havent used my breville die cast in abotu 6 months and now that ive turned it on the pump wont work, what can i do?


The scale and dirt inside vibrating pump have dry out and keep the pump stuck. If your hands are capable you desasemble the pumb clean all the parts with a metal brush and put them back together 90% the pump will work perfect again. Their are 10% that the coil of the pump to be burn out then you will need a new pump

Breville Die Cast 800ESXL Espresso Machine no suction but pump operates (makes noise). Cant find any obstructions in internal plumbing? Could the thermal plate be obstructed? I will try blasting it with...


I had the same problem. I opened up the back and disconnected the water hose from the spring loaded intake hose and put the hose directly into the tube and into the reservoir tank. Now it seems to **** the water in again. Not sure this is the best solution but it seems to work for now.

If someone has a better solution, I'd be happy to hear about it.

Breville Die Cast 800ESXL Espresso Machine: Problem... Watery espresso. My machine worked great for a year, then all the sudden, the espresso is watery and the basket where the grinds are is full of water...


Hi,

Personnaly, when I use the big filter, the grinds are dry after the extraction, but for the small filter, it's all soggy. If you look at the documentation, ( http://kitchen.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/breville/breville_coffeemaker_product_list.html) they say wet coffee grind after extraction is normal.
But did you change the coffee brand ? Or the grinding level ? How do you grind your coffee ? I had big troubbles once with a commercial grinder at my grocery store, it's when I decided to buy my own Breville grinder.

Good luck,

JF

Breville 800esxl won't extract coffee or steam milk.


is your machine new or is this a new problem? If you have had the machine for a while there is a possibility that your double wall filter is clog between the walls which would prevent the water from going through (this happens when your grind is too fine). If however the water does not go through when you do not have a filter in the basket than you have a diferent problem.

FixmeBob Great help with Breville 800esxl


I had a similar problem, but no blinking light, only cold coffee. I tapped on the relay (black box on circuit board) and violá.  Red light, hot coffee, and happiness.  The machine did the same thing a couple of weeks after the "fix", and a good slap to the left side, and I was back in business.  My guess is that your switch is bad or sticking.  Good luck.
