Question about Breville Die Cast 800ESXL Espresso Machine
My machine appears to have an electrical problem, but I'm not familiar with troubleshooting those types of problems. Could be a fuse or power supply? I started to attempt to remove panels in order to look at the electrical components, but it's not as straightforward as I had hoped (of course!). There is only one service center in Colo. and it's 2 hours away. Can anyone give me:
I had the same problem. I replaced the Zener Diode, and all is well again. Thank you very much.

For those who read this... even the cheapest gaggia will make better espresso... don't be fooled by the looks of this machine

With the machine facing you, the circuit board is mounted on the left panel. Simply unscrew the grey plastic and you will see it inside a clear case.
The two grey conical inserts are recessed into the machine (next to where water drips out into the coffee), one on each side. Just use a long philip head screwdriver to unscrew them until they drop down.
They hold the top lid in place. Now push the top lid towards you,
pretty easy. Also take out the water tank in the back (the one swing out) to make room to access the circuit board. With the machine back facing you, open the water tank, use your finger to pull the plastic tap. One side of the tank will just drop, and just jiggle the tank out.
Remove the circuit board case, pull out all the wires with a piler,
they are sort of tight, but you can pull them out carefully. Label them so you won't mix them up.
With the circuit board out, I probed around with a multimeter. I found ZD6, a zener diode, part # 1N4749A didn't give me a 0.46V reading. (there is another zener diode with the same part # that gives 0.46V (ZD1). ZD6 is next to two blue electrolytic capacitors. Unsolder ZD6 from underneath and replace it.
It is like 5 cents, definitely not freaking $40.
