SOURCE: With the BES860 set to Dual Wall for full

If your using the dial gauge with a dual wall basket, you need to leave the dial in the dual wall setting. If you move it beyond the dual wall setting, you are basically adding more volume to the basket. Leave it in the dual wall setting for dual wall baskets.

Otherwise it may be faulty, it could be your grind setting, try it on 13 and see how it goes.

Filter basket door opens during coffee making.


sounds like there is a bad relay, that is shorting out, and releasing the filter basket accidentally. Also, check to make sure that there is nothing blocking the latch that holds the filter basket in place.

Hi my breville barista express does not grind the beans, and the "single/double" light is blinking, what is the problem?


My wife tried to make my coffee and long story short, she removed the lid to "move the beans around"..The grinder stopped working and the filter size lights began flashing intermittently. After taking the whole thing apart, the only REAL problem is that the lock mechanism inside the hopper came unlocked. So put your machine back together and "lock" the hopper. The lights will stop flashing...lets hope

They require a bit of effort to push them in when new, you should have gotten a set of single wall and dual wall baskets. There is a spring clip inside the grouphead (portafilter) and you have to overcome the clamping of the spring it is a reasonably tight fit to stop the basket retaining in the machine.

Hi, The beans wont grind, I can't take out the bit where they go because the grinder isn't empty because it wont work. All lights are flashing. Help! : ) thank you


Try turning it off then on again, If you have your manual it does tell you how to reset your machine to default setting. Try this unless you have already returned it for repair.

My machine blinking on steam, the wand does not want t o steam, the espresso does not pour. The knob is turned on stand by , but still some steaming noise comes, but no steam comes from the wand, nor...


When it is blinking on steam it means it is preparing the unit for steam. When the steam light goes solid your unit is ready to make steam.

  • Turn from standby to steam then wait for steam light to go solid.
  • When solid steam wand will begin dribbling then spitting out water, which will then turn to steam.
  • When it begins to steam, turn back to standby. NOTE: you only have 6 seconds before steaming turns off.
  • place steaming wand in jug and turn from standby back to steam.
You will hear pumping noises when you turn off your steam, because it releases the steam and puts the excess water in to the drip tray.
  • make sure your bean hopper is properly locked in to the unit. Grinder won't work if hopper not locked in.
  • Make sure your water filter has been prepped and locked securely in to the reservoir and your reservoir is filled.
  • Use fresh beans.
  • Sounds funny but use good quality water, do not use ordinary tap water. Make sure it is filtered or use bottled water (cooler bottles).
  • Try to grind your beans to a good consistancy.
  • Breville recomends about 10kg tamping pressure, use a set of scales to check the feel.
  • Tamp to about 3-5 mm below rim of grouphead (portafilter). Or the tamp has a guide on the side, that silver side on the tamp is the tamp line. Pretty vauge about that in the book.
If all else fails go to www.breville.com.au and check your model and watch some of the vid clips.

Saeco: grinder stops grinding


Hello, This may be the solution for you: having removed the ceramic grinder to clean out the unit, one of the wires on the grinder had become removed (the "center wire") on the connector. The 2 outside wires were sufficient to give me the illusion that the grinder was connected correctly, however it would only run for a half second and then coast to an annoying stop.

Check all 3 wires that connect to the grinder and make sure they are making contact.

Pill clean your machine.
Take out the filter for this experiment
Try adjusting your grinder to the full course setting. You will have to make three or four cups before you see the results of the new setting.
If the flow comes back to normal and the light problem goes away the problem was your grinder was set too fine. Replace the filter and try a few more shots. If all the water leaked out of the filter the lights will come on one time until the filter is purged of air and you should be good to go.
If you still have the lights coming on you have some type of internal restriction a technician will have to clear it . We repair Jura Capresso.
