Question about Breville Die Cast 800ESXL Espresso Machine
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.

If coffee is too cold, machine not preheated, cups not preheated, milk not heated enough (if making a cappuccino or latté)
