SOURCE: Hot water won't flow into machine

We stumbled across a solution to this same problem by filling the reservoir about half full, putting it in place, and reaching down to the bottom (small hands required) to pull the plunger open. The machine was running at the time, set to run water through the filter holder, which had no grounds in it. It may not be necessary to have the machine on. Good luck, Gene

A card included in the operating manual indicates that this is normal. The Breville "Dual Wall Crema System" will do this. Visit for more information.

SOURCE: Temperature adjustment?

the rear temp sensor is in charge of the brew temp. To increase the temp, lift sensor and clean out the thermal paste. To further increase, insert some fine metal mesh between sensor and boiler. The front senser is for emergency (overheat) cut off. Don't tamper! Brought to you by Jim Vonkas

SOURCE: how do I get my breville cafe roma espresso

Same thing happened to me and I had to push down on the water tank a little more firmly. It looked like it was seated okay but I guess it needed to be pushed down more to open the little spring-loaded opening at the bottom.

Stove top coffee espresso brewers; have three compartments, the lower is a sealed water tank that once heated will push boiling hot water and steam through the coffee grounds and over flow into the 3d chamber at the top of the pot. It is finished once all the water has boiled out of the lower chamber.
* Naturally when you boil water in a sealed chamber it's going to pressurize to the point where something will give. In this case it's the coffee grounds. But what if the grounds plugs up the filter and pressurizes it beyond what the chamber can safely contain? This is where the safety valve will sense the over pressure and release the excess steam. You will see and hear a loud hiss and steam exiting from the side where this valve is.
* The safety valve is not adjustable. Pre-mature blow out (of steam) can be caused by too fine a grind on the coffee, Turkish grind is finer than espresso. This tiny grind will clog all the filter holes. Use the standard espresso grind which is 1 size up from Turkish grind.
* The safety valve may blow if too high a heat is applied to the pot. Turn down the stove to a lower setting to give the hot water and steam time to flow through the coffee. If you observe the coffee as it oozes out of the center post. It should be a steady flow (like lava) with a gush of steam near the end of the brew when the top pot is full.
* The safety valve can get clogged which needs to be cleaned and checked PRIOR to filling and using.
* when in doubt. change out the safety valve. You could check with your vendor or MFR for replacements. Also check for the part.

It sounds like the valve [ball?] at the bottom of your reservoir is sticking. That will prevent good water flow into the heating chamber. Hence, the thermostat trips and shuts off the brew element. Try running undiluted vinegar [without coffee in the basket] to see if this cleans the valve. Also try turning the maker upside down over the sink when the cycle stops, to "backwash" the valve with the vinegar. You may have to repeat this several times.

It sounds like the water isn't flowing through the coffee grounds correctly. Perhaps you don't have the right kind of filter installed (either the right-sized paper filter, or the "gold" filter that comes with the machine) ... or, if uising pre-ground coffee, and if the coffee is all in a pile in the middle of the basket... the water will follow the path of least resistance, so much of it may run "downhill" and around the coffee, through the filter and into the carafe, without passing through the coffee. (That would be more likely if you're brewing only a few cups rather than a full pot.) Or, you might not be using enough coffee; I would use about 7-8 tablespoons of ground coffee for 10 cups of water. I'd recommend getting it working properly with pre-ground coffee before trying the grinder. It's also important that the lid of the carafe is in place while brewing, and that the carafe is fully seated in its chamber; the bump on top of the carafe's lid triggers a spring-loaded mechansim on the bottom of the basket, which regulates the flow of water into the carafe... so if any parts of this system aren't lined-up right, you may get unexpected results (including, in some cases, water all over the countertop).

I also recall, once upon a time, using one of those pre-packaged "packets" of coffee... sort-of like a large tea bag full of coffee grounds... and getting unsatisfactory results; again, the water found it easier to run over/around the coffee packet, rather than through it.

Remove the brew unit and check the screen under the red o-ring, find the 2 screws above the top piston and make sure the chamber that leads out to the tube is clear.

After the coffee is ground and pressed, no water goes through to brew the coffee and dispense it

Sounds like the brew unit is blocked, to be sure try this, use the pre grounds button to brew a coffee, if no water comes out then it is the brew unit, remove unit and look under red o-ring, you will see a shower screen, clean shower and tube that flows to the discharge(top, you will have to remove the 2 screws up there, be careful not to lose the small plastic ball under the spring). Reassemble and try again.

Shuts off in the middle of a brew or loses auto brew

In the last few months, my Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffeemaker has started shutting off in the middle of a brew cycle and if I set it the night before, it doesn't start brewing at the time set for. At first I thought it was related to the GFI outlet I have it plugged into, but now I am convinced it is the coffeemaker itself. Since it is now about six years old, it doesn't owe me anything, but I will consider a different model for a replacement.

When you are finished with steaming, try pushing the steam button again and then opening the steam valve to purge the steam. Do this until the water flows freely. You should hear the pump change tone. If you have a pre grind button, try that without putting any coffee in the pre ground chute, then push a medium coffee. Water should flow through the brew unit freely. If not, you are getting a blockage in the brew unit. If it does, your grind on the machine might be too fine. Change to a coarser grind and try again. It usually takes 3 cycles before the grind is in effect.

Could be the pump not providing enough pressure to force the water through the coffee. When using beans or preground, can you still hear the pump function?

Coffee grinds and then there are 10-12 load clicking noises. No water or coffee comes out and grounds start piling up at the bottom of the central dispensing area. Can you help?

If you take the brew unit out and there is coffee in the chamber, you have a broken brew drive. It is usually from over dosing or using too much coffee in the pre-ground mode. The brew drive is what compresses the coffee. If there is too much coffee in the chamber, it can't compress the coffee and the drive breaks.
