    Steam is leaking all around the top of the steam wand, and hot water is dripping down. The join seems tight, and the washer seems ok, but I can't find any other adjustment to make or nut to tighten to fix this. Milk will not get to the correct consistency with so much leaking steam and hot water.

I have the same problem. It appears to be caused by a worn steam wand gasket that's inside the steam wand assembly which can be unscrewed from the Breville machine. This was confirmed by the folks at Breville. They referred me to www.thegourmetdepotco.com. That website does not sell the steam wand gasket separately. They sell "Frother Assembly MOdel #800ESXL-250" for $14.95. With tax ($1.42) and shipping via USPS ($5.65), the total is $22.02. A very high price for the failure of a simple plastic washer, but it beats buying a new machine!

My breville cafe roma wand is not steaming it is just making air bubbles


Have you tried cleaning out the machine? My steam wand started just spraying out a steady stream of water but was not heating up. I used the cleaning solution CLR (8 parts water, 1 part CLR) and let it run through the steam wand for awhile. At first it just kept streaming out then all of a sudden it stopped. I still kept it on just to see what would happen. After about 10 seconds all of a sudden the steam wand shot out whatever had clogged it and it works perfectly again! I had only used the machine about 10 times before this happened. I had not been cleaning it well after each use back then. Now I definitely do.

Low pressure on milk frother on breville coffee machine


First,I'm NOT a Breville tech, but this is a very common problem with steam boilers. Your valve seal(s) are worn and needs replacement. Any leaking water or steaming from various places other than the steam tip is causing your tank to lose pressure. The heater needs to stay on longer just to keep everything up to pressure and properly heated. You probably noticed that your shots may not have the creme or very thin and watery. Milk steaming takes a long time or not enough steam to complete a froth, especially on a Latte. Your machine needs servicing. Contact your vendor or MFR for service.
** loose steam wands will fall off and be re-assembled without the ball seal or washer. Look around the machine for a round disk made of hard rubber or nylon plastic. Take apart the wand and reassemble with the washer or get a new washer and tighten,.
** other places were you can loose steam pressure is the Anti-siphon valve, Safety valve, and various pipe fittings to the steam boiler. Look for steaming plumes from unexpected areas of the machine.
** Scale that has built up to the point of causing valve problems are usually too much for DE-scaling to work properly. Usually done as a preventive maintenance rather an alternate to repair. Like a blood clot, if you remove it while still in an active system. Where does this clog end up? This debris needs to be physically removed from the pipes, valves, and/or tank. Heavy scaling is a sign of an old machine that will need a lot of servicing to bring it up to MFR specifications.
** Final; The steam wand(s) are the most used (and abused) parts of the machine. Constant cleaning is a required task that needs very diligent baristas to keep it fully functional. I've found that best operators use the following method to keep the steam wand in top condition; Remove milk froth pitcher completely from wand, Send a short blast of steam to clear milk residue from tip. Take a damp towel to grab wand an pull downward to wipe off any remaining milk residue. Leave the wand in a pitcher of cool water to soak during long break periods to help break up any dried milk. Let soak over nite when not in use. Have your operators notify you of any 'loosey-goosey" wands. Tighten them properly but make sure all the parts and washers are there. Check your manual or just ask your technician to show you the next time.

No Pressure when extracting coffe


it's quite simple, Quite Simple: manual says packing grounds too tightly/ too fine a grind causes this problem; does your steam wand put out adequate steam? if so, don't pack so tight. of course, the manual is full of lies, so chalk it up to poor workmanship/quality control at factory/bad design/bad business practices a'la lower end breville machine. take yer pick.

Steam wand, little water coming out, but no steam?


Hi,

If you look at the end on the steam pipe you will see a nipple, loosen this and make sure it is clean.
