Water flows fine until we put in the Filter Holder

Our Breville is pumpming water & steam fine, but as soon as we put the Filter handle in, it makes the pumping noises, but nothing comes out. Does anyone have an answer on how to fix this problem?

The grind on the coffee is too fine, try packing it lighter or setting the grind coarser.

Your filter is blocked. It can be one of two things.

1. Coffee - this is obvious
2. Calcium - if you have hard water (i.e. your hot water kettle has white stuff in the bottom attached to the element)

The sure fire solution is to address both and the procedure is easy.

Since the filter is stainless steel, it can take the high temperatures of a stove top. Put the filter directly on the element and set to high for 10 minutes. This will burn off any coffee clogging the filter. After that, mix equal parts of water and vinegar in a pot, put the filter in and boil at max for 15 minutes.

This should do the trick. If it works for you, please click "yes" on "this is helpful", otherwise click "no". I searched for over a year to understand that my issue was a combination of two things so nothing worked for me. Clicking on yes/no would help the community understand if there are other unknown issues.

The filter is most likely clogged... I've heard people putting it in vinegar for 48hrs with some success. Replacement was around 10$ when I asked the store.

They told me this to make it last better:
-Always flush it by doing a pass with no coffee before shutting down the machine.
-Use coffe a bit on the coarse side for expresso. Powder will clog it otherwise.

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.

Hi, We have just bought a DeLonghi Caffe Treviso. We are not able to get any coffee/liquid to drip out of the filter holder. The problem seems to occur when we are trying to preheat the machine, for...


Sounds like you need to prime the water pump. Remove the filter holder, open the steam knob and then press the coffee delivery switch. Wait for water to flow consistently from the steamer and then close the steam knob. Water should then be forced to flow through the goup head (coffee head). If you cannot get water to flow from steamer then the pump may have already been damaged or it may have been faulty from the start. If water will flow through steamer but not for the coffee, then the group head is blocked. Good luck hope this helps and remember that all machines should be primed like this before use.

Coffee machine blocked


it could be grind stuck in the (yes the, as in the only) hole in the filter cup. remove the filter cup from the cup holder (the thing with the black handle) and use the tiny pin in the little brown tool to push out whatever is in there. you may have used to fine a grind or stuffed the filter cup too much. careful, that is how you break the plastic filter holder ring.

for calcifying, i just use plain white vinegar. i put it in straight into the clear water holder, about 3/4 cup, then i run it throuhg a bit, let it sit 5 min, run it through a bit, let it sit 30 min to an hour. depending on the day, i repeat a few times, rinse with clean water. i do this about every 2 months.

I have an older Breville home unit that isnt pumping at the same pressure it used to. Cant make steam either


You need to clean the coffee filters real good,as per manufacturer instructions,One of the best solutions,boil the coffee filter,without the handle.After boiling for about 5 minutes,clean the filter.Now place filter with handle in place( DO NOT USE ANY COFFEE GRINDS).Engage machine into espresso mode.Let it run about a minute.Also clean the upper filter(requires taking philip screw out).Good luck.

Extremely loud squealing noise during steaming milk


This could be blocked. The best way to clear this is to switch off the machine and see if you can dismantle the frother arm. Sometimes the arm will come off by unscrewing. If it does, wash it in hot water and washing liquid. If it doesn't come off try putting the frother wand into a mug of cold water and allow it just to steam the water.
Frother wands don't just steam liquids - they **** up liquid which can block the vents and the actual steam hole which this machines' problem sounds like it does have.

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.

No water coming through


Try pushing the water tank down firmly when putting it into its spot  (it sits lower than the edge of the machine).
