Breville brew head seals are rather difficult to locate, but I personally stock them for ESP8XL & 800ESXL machines and sell them at a reasonable cost. I sell lots of new and used parts for various coffee machines, but specialize in Krups and some Breville. If interested in purchasing a Breville brew head seal, contact me at email@example.com and I'll make arrangements. I accept Paypal to make the transaction safe and secure for us both.

Hi, can anyone tell me where I can get a replacement steam wand and double coffee holder for a Breville BES820? I have been looking on the web and can't find anything.

The diagnosis: probably an internal short circuit.
This is what happened to my machine, and because it's out of warranty I thought I'd have a quick look at it myself. Turned out to be simple fix, so here goes...
Getting access to the wiring we need to look at is easy enough.
1. Disconnect power from outlet (obviously);
2. Use your Torx T20 to driver bit to remove 4 screws holding the rear cover, then turn the machine upside down and remove 2 small philips-head screws securing the base of the rear cover. remove the cover.
3. Gently bang the top die-cast cover from the back to try and dislodge it and move it towards the front of the machine (there are no screws holding the cover on the BES820, it is just a tight fit under some lugs). Your attempts to move the cover will be met with resistance. In the end I needed to thump it quite hard with my hand. A rubber mallet would probably be ideal, but I don't have one. Once you have pushed the cover forward by about 10mm, you should be able to lift the cover off.
4. Unscrew the earthing cable form the top cover and put the cover aside.
5. Now inspect the visible cables. Look in particular for any pair of wires that may be making contact with each other. This was what I found in my case. Two wires had been rubbing against each other, probably due to the vibration cause by the pump, and eventually had rubbed through the insulation to the point where the circuit was shorted. Smoking gun found!
6. If you find this evidence, you will need to a) add some additional insulation where the original has worn through (make sure it is heat and steam resistant, consult with your electronics store), and b) ideally, try to rearrange the cabling to keep some physical separation between the cables so it doesn't happen again.
When you are satisfied with your work, you can test it by plugging it back in and turning on at the wall. If you haven't replaced the covers yet, be aware that most of the visible wiring you see in there is running mains voltage, so keep hands clear!
Reassembly is the reverse of above. Don't forget to re-connect the earth lead to the top cover before replacing it. Good luck!
