I've had same problem twice
Once Breville fixed under duress as just out of warranty and no parts
Last week same problem.
I tracked problem down to the big yellow 1.5uf 280v capacitor on the power supply board.
It wasn't passing enough current
when plugged in the 24volts and 5 volts were OK
when pressing the On button the Heater relay calls and on light flashes the 24 volt drops to 11volts and the 5v to 4v
Once up to heat the 24 voltage rises to 14v
when you press the steam button there the 14vis no enough to call the heater relay and the seam light just keeps flashing.
I replaced the faulty capacitor and all good coffee and steam
