Question about Breville Die Cast 800ESXL Espresso Machine

2 Answers

Temperature adjustment? Anyone attempted to adjust the brew temperature of the 800ESXL ? I've just read that 203.5deg F is ideal. When I check the water pumped from the brew head (grounds / filter cup removed) the water is only 172deg F. Anyone tested adjusted yet?

    How to adjust brewing temperatire?

  • cheeber Jul 04, 2008

    a also have 800esxl and get a water temp of 165-170F (~75C) which is too low per all the literature on espresso brewing. this is with preheat. not sure if it has been this way since i purchased it two yrs ago, but i think so, since the espresso is never quite right. i will try to sescale thoughto see it that beings the temp up, and have a look at the circuit as well to see if anything can be adjusted (i am guessing no). it is probably a liitation of the thermoblock system to get enough heat into the water, although thie thermostat may also be turning it off at too low a temp.

    water temperature that comes out of the hot water spout and also from the brew head is about 70 degrees centegrade. I do get some crema but not as much as I have in other machines that I have used. I do feel that the temperature is not high enough, but as the machine is only 5 weeks old I am not sure.

The rear temp sensor is in charge of the brew temp. To increase the temp, lift sensor and clean out the thermal paste. To further increase, insert some fine metal mesh between sensor and boiler. The front senser is for emergency (overheat) cut off. Don't tamper! Brought to you by Jim Vonkas

When I watch the YouTube videos for using lever machines, they always draw a blank (hot water, no coffee). This serves to preheat the brew head and the cup(s), as well as rinsing out stale coffee from the previous day.  I have done this a few times with my Breville, and get good, hot coffee. Might be worth a try. Otherwise, you may need a new (different) thermostat.
My issue is a bit different: I live at 7400 feet, and water boils at 196 F (92 C). When the heater is at the end of the heat cycle and I draw a shot, I get a blast of steamy water through the portafilter that extracts the coffee flavor. The shot tastes almost normal but I also get quite a mess from the splatter.  I located the hot water and steam thermostats on the machine when I had it apart, so if I could get one that has a lower limit, I'd be happy.  Hope you get your problem solved.

What is the ideal setting for fridge on Bosch KGN34VW20G


Hello John;

My name is Peter. I am a retired Sears service technician. The freezer temperature should be between -2 & + 2 degrees F. The fresh food section should be between 35-40 degree F.
Pick up a inexpensive temperature gauge with a steel shank. Place the temperature gauge in the freezer center. Do not make contact with any food product. Allow 20 minutes and read the gauge. Be quick the temperature on the gauge will drop quickly when you remove. Adjust the temperature control knob according until you reach the desired setting. Repeat this process as necessary. Do the same for the fresh food section.
You only have one source of cooling; the evaporator coil and fan in the freezer. The freezer will meet it's temperature setting first before it opens the fresh food section damper.
A balanced system will save on your electrical bills. The compressor will kick in only when demand is met. Your compressor should not be running continuously.

What is the normal temperature to set the fridge and freezer


  • A frigidaire should have a temperature of between thirtyseven degrees farenheit (three degrees centigrade) and forty degrees farenheit (five degrees centigrade). Any higher and the food will go off, any lower and you'll lose nutrients and fresh food can be ruined.
  • The ideal freezer temperature is zero degrees farenheit (negative eighteen degrees centigrade) which will store food safely and stop bacteria forming
  • It's a good idea to buy a fridge thermometer and check the temperature if you are not sure it the thermostat is working efficiently
  • If you adjust the thermostat, it generally will take twentyfour hours to adjust the temperature

Does anyone know how to rectify the TEC B-SX4 head temperature error? it's the correct version printhead for the model of MLB and the correct firmware, but problem still exists.


This excess temperature may be caused by a temperture detector.
Ther are two detectors on a Toshiba Tec Printer.
- On the print head.
- In the top part of the label sensor mecanism.
You cna check if they are working when going in the adjust set parameter setting.
You can read Head temp and air temp
If one of them is not working you will not be able to adjust the temperature. Worst you'll have the message Head excess temperature message.

3. Sprayhead-A six-hole stainless steel spray-
head must be used for proper
extraction.
4. Funnel Loading-The BUNN paper filter must be centered in the funnel and the bed of ground leveled by gentle shaking.
5. Water Temperature- Place an empty funnel on an empty
dispenser beneath the sprayhead. Initiate a brew cycle and check the
water temperature immediately below the sprayhead with a ther-
mometer. The reading should not be less than 195F (91C). Adjust
the control thermostat to increase the water temperature. Replace if necessary.

How do you lower the temperture in the refrigerator?


Letting perishables such as milk and eggs get warm doesn't just effect the taste; it can also allow bacteria to grow. It's essential to guard against this by adjusting your refrigerator temperature when necessary. Read below for how to do it.


1 Measure the temperature of you refrigerator. To measure the temperature in a fridge without a thermostat, just place a normal thermometer in a glass of water and place it inside the fridge. Check back 5 to 8 hours later to see what temperature the water is. This allows you to determine the temperature indirectly.

  • 2 Adjust the temperature. Once you've identified your refrigerator's temperature, it's time to change the settings. Turn the indicator to the left to make the temperature warmer, and to the right to make your refrigerator colder. It is important to only change the temperature gauge by one setting, regardless of how much you think it must be adjusted. This prevents freezing or thawing of food by making the change gradually.
  • 3 Check the temperature again after 6 to 8 hours. If it's the temperature you want, you're set. If not, move the dial one setting colder or warmer, depending on your needs. The ideal temperature for a refrigerator is 40 degrees. Wait at least 24 hours in between each adjustment to allow the fridge time to achieve that temperature.
  • 4 Prepare for changing seasons. Where you live can have a big influence on your fridge's temperatures. You may need to adjust the temperature lower in the summer and higher in the winter to maintain a constant 40 degrees. Those who live in moderate climates can worry less about weather effecting their refrigerator's temperature.
  • 5 Check the air vents. If you're having trouble achieving the right temperature, even after numerous adjustments, make sure the vents on the inside of the fridge aren't covered. This can prevent air flow, making it impossible to cool the refrigerator

  • Hope this would help you.


    Have a nice day!

    I have a keurig b 60 brewer and i don't feel the water is hot enough. i just got it last night 12/23/10 can u suggest anything?


    Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

    ProgrammingBrewTemperature (187°-192oF)
    The Brewer brews at a preset temperature of 192°. You can adjust this temperature down by 5 degrees if you prefer a cooler cup of coffee, tea or hot cocoa. Simply follow the instructions below.
    1. Press the Menu Button on the LCD Control Center five times to program the Brew Temperature feature.
    2. The LCD Control Center will now display the programming options with a small arrow next to "SET BREW TEMP" (fig. 15). Also, the temperature 192° (initial setting) will be displayed at the bottom of the LCD Control Center to indicate the current temperature setting.
    3. A minus sign will appear over the Small Cup Button and/or a plus sign over the Large Mug Button. Use these buttons to raise or lower the temperature one degree at a time.
    4. Once you have reached your desired brew temperature, press the Menu Button once to exit the programming mode. "BREW TEMP SET" will be displayed in the LCD Control Center if you have changed it from 192°.
    5. To change the brew temperature again, repeat steps 1 through 3 to change the temperature up or down, remembering that the temperature can only be between 187° and 192°.

    Cuisinart DCC-1200 brewing temperature


    Hello ditommm,
    Not to worry, I think I can help. On the face of your DCC-1200, there are two black switches. The right one adjusts the carafe temperature. With the white line to the left you get a lower carafe temperature. With it all the way to the right you get the highest (hottest) temp. Of course, in the middle, you get a medium temp. I use mine with the lowest temp so that I don't end of scalding my lips and tongue when I drink my coffee. Use this bit of info to adjust your carafe temps. If you are looking to cause the actual brewing temp I don't know of a way to do that. Coffee needs to be brewed at the set temp in order to break down the elements of the ground coffee. I hope this is what you were looking for in an answer and that it is helpful. If it is, please consider leaving positve feedback for me. I will certainly appreciate it. Good luck! Regards, NormanZ
