Question about Breville Die Cast 800ESXL Espresso Machine
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.
