Hi, Just got a new espresso maker and run into a porblem: the machine turns on, however, the espresso mode on it malfunctions: the water gashes out over the edges and down the handle of the filter holder even when the filter is empty. The handle itself does not secure tightly when inserted and turned to the Lock position, leaving just enough room for the water to come over the edges and not down the filter opening. It seems that the machine may be missing a part in the Brew Head that would seal the filter holder. Any thoughts?
BrevilleUSA.com has a silicon seal (steam ring) to replace faulty or worn ones. There is no shipping charge, and they are $4 each. To replace the steam ring you'll need to remove the stainless spray disk on the brew head with a phillips screwdriver (one screw) and pull off the old ring (pay attention to the direction and placement of the stainless disk). Takes about 2 minutes to do.
Part # .800ESXL/192 Also, on mine I noticed that the filter holder was ground down at the factory a bit too much on one side, which causes a slight leak down one side (coffee, not water). You might check the holder (with the filter removed) for imperfections that could lead to your leak. Good luck.

I have the same problem. I used my machine for one day to test it when I had it brought into Vietnam then packed it while our house was being built.
Now it won't pump water or produce steam.
To add insult to injury Breville advice "They don't give service manuals to the public"
Personnaly, when I use the big filter, the grinds are dry after the extraction, but for the small filter, it's all soggy. If you look at the documentation, ( http://kitchen.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/breville/breville_coffeemaker_product_list.html) they say wet coffee grind after extraction is normal. But did you change the coffee brand ? Or the grinding level ? How do you grind your coffee ? I had big troubbles once with a commercial grinder at my grocery store, it's when I decided to buy my own Breville grinder.
the 50mm side works perfect for the Breville 800ESXL and the material matches the machine. It takes up less space than the original spoon/tamper combination and sits nicely on the warming surface when not in use.
I have a Breville Die Cast 800ESXL and due to wrong cleaning process, I have to buy the steam wand. I tryed to find them in Breville.com but they does not have this part available for sale. Where can I buy this Steam Wand for my Breville Die Cast 800ESXL. PLease let me know ASAP, at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks
