Question about Breville Die Cast 800ESXL Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Power light will not come on.

We recently went to use our new Breville espresso machine and after filling the water tray, attempted to turn the power on by pressing the power button but nothing happened. We checked the power source (ie. plug in) and it was working fine. We suspect that someone turned the power on when there was no water in the tray and possibly burned out the elements. Where can we find a manual to disassemble the machine and locate a reset button or replace the heating elements?

    Same thing happened to us this morning. Just in time for thanksgiving. Customer Service was useless. They gave me a number to a service shop here in Manhattan which doesn't sound to promising. If I hear anything back I will let you know asap.

    Does anyone know if there is a reset button before I throw it in trash?

There is a post with a solution for this with the title: "Machine won't turn on - no power! " - fixmebob has a good solution, but you'll need to be a little tech savvy to perform it yourself. I ended up sending mine in for repair, which ended up being about $55 because I had to ship the machine. But good news is that I'm back up and running.

I got through to the tech support at Breville and they helped me fix this problem. What they had me do was:

1)Fill the water tank all the way up

2)Turn the power on and wait until the heating light turns off.

3)without coffee in the head turn the machine to espresso mode and let it pump for a minute.

4)after a minute turn to standby for a couple seconds then turn it to steam mode for a minute.

5) after this minute is up turn it back to standby for a couple of seconds and then back to espresso mode.

6) the technician said to do this seven times, but mine started working after three or so. The tech said the fixes about 80 to 90 percent of machines with this problem.

Good Luck!

After successfully using the machine I tried to make a second coffee. Water continually poured into the tray and the machine sounded very loud (as if it was starting up). I then tried to shut down the...


The coffee grind is too fine, or you are tamping too hard, First remove the portafilter and press the brew button if water flows move on if not remove the shower and clean. Now that we have a nice flow of water without the portafilter. Now we will add coffee to the portafilter, and level it out, do not tamp and try to run a coffee, if that works then the Tamp is the problem, if you tamp and still have the problem then the grind is too fine.

Although machine is turned off water pumps through to the over flow tray(power button is not pushed on )


Sounds like a check valve on the pump or the power switch is not operating properly, if off and pump is still working.

Hot water won't flow into machine


You most likely need to prime the brew head. Follow the instructions in the owner's manual. To prime the brew head, you'll need to put run the machine without coffee until water starts flowing. One water flows, the brew head is primed and the machine is ready for normal use. You'll need to do this every time you run out of water. Regards, Denis
