Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
Hi,I have a Breville Bar Vista and when I try to brew a shot, water leaks out between the body and the brewhead and no water actually gets on the coffee itself. The coffee stays perfectly dry. Any ideas on what the problem is/ how to fix it?
There is a gasket in clear silicone that seals the handle when you brew the coffee, it is most probably damaged. When that happens, there is not enough pressure to push water trough so it comes out where it should not. To remove it, you have to undo a single screw right where the water touches the coffee, you will need a short screwdriver, a long one won't do. Remove the round piece with the holes, remove the gasket and put in a new one. Get two, so you don't have to run around to get a new one next time, it will probably need to be replace in 6 months or so, Make sure youclean your machine, because if you don't, you will run in to all kinds or problems. They sell tablet from Italy that are better than CLR which should not be used, it is too strong. If the water in your area is really strong, vinegar will not do either. Good Luck.

There is a hose/plastic pipe that goes from the reservoir to the cofee granules. it's mis-aligned or popped out of its spot. just put it back in place. its inside the reservoir you can reach it by hand.
