Breville ESP8XL Espresso Machine Cafe Roma leaking.. help please..

Hi

i have an espresso machine (breville esp8xl cafe roma) and it when i turn the dial to espresso the water overflows from the side of the filter holder instead of passing through the filter. the holder doesnt click shut but it feels tight enough. i have checked the rubber ring and it seems ok.. do i need new parts (eg. rubber ring)? also where can i find parts, should i need them?
missing my coffee...

many thanks

    I have a perished rubber ring. Does anyone know is you can buy them and replace it or do I have to go through a service centre and pay mega bucks to have a repair done?
    THANX

    I replaced the ring, but water continues to leak around the ring and in the center of the filter.

    My ring was clearly shot, so I replaced the ring (you can get them from Breville), but perhaps I didn't seat it right. The coffee holder doesn't seem to seat tightly now and I still have water leaking around the ring.

We had that happen and it was a crack in the black ring that holds the filter. Breville could not supply us with one but we found an OEM part in aluminum from http://www.vancouverwireedm.com/caferomadiyt.htm. We received it 1 week after ordering. It was pretty easy to replace. Our machine works fine now.

    Had it happen again. This time it was the little silicone ring that broke. We were able to get one from Breville.

Breville brew head seals are rather difficult to locate, but I personally stock them for ESP8XL & 800ESXL machines and sell them at a reasonable cost. I sell lots of new and used parts for various coffee machines, but specialize in Krups and some Breville. If interested inpurchasing a Breville brew head seal, contact me atcowboy_romeo@yahoo.com and I'll make arrangements. I accept Paypal to make the transaction safe andsecure for us both.

Same thing happened to me and I had to push down on the water tank a little more firmly. It looked like it was seated okay but I guess it needed to be pushed down more to open the little spring-loaded opening at the bottom.

Coffee grounds in coffee.


I sent a email to Breville and they sent me seals rings, try their web page. My problem though was that the case was broken, and coffee with grounds trickled through that crack, so check the area around the casket.

Water leaking out of the tank


Hi,

i think you have to replace the gasket where the water tank fits, it´s very tight there, you have to take off the bottom from the machine then you will see two screw, loosen this.

Now can you put down your hand in the hole and take of the plastic above the gasket.

Hope this will help you.

Breville ESP8XL Cafe Roma does not pump, or build up enough pressure to push the water through the coffee. Help.


Hi,

Make sure the filter is clean, that in the holder and in the machine. If it is clean then i think your pump have to be replaced:-(

Obviously the problem is with your grind, not the Breville. SImply adjust your grind to finer.
Good luck!
