Question about Breville CM5 Espresso Machine & Coffee Maker

1 Answer

I am finding the coffee does not come through the brewing head unless the coffee is not tampered at all, but then it does not produce a very good coffee as it is very watery.

Adjust the grind, it is too fine.

    Then either your pump is not producing enough pressure, or the shower screen needs to be cleaned.

Programing for best cup


when feeling upper crusty, I like the pre-soak method, using my good old bunn machine a small blast of 195 degree water to steep for 45 seconds to a minute, followed by the remaining 195 degree water to brew my desired quantity. but I seldom wish to muck about when I want some coffee, so use my good old bunn old school brewer the way it was originally designed,... add grounds, pour water, enjoy coffee!

I can't get the water to come through the coffee holder. It builds up pressure but won't shoot the coffee out. The water comes out if I take the holder off , but not when it is in place. Do I need a new...


Remove the brew head. Pry out the metal coffee filter, then pry out the rubber gasket. There is a small black plastic insert that is likely gunked up with coffee buildup. Clean the parts well, reassemble, and then try again.
If you are a good "tamper", you can leave out the rubber gasket and plastic insert entirely, and just go with the the filter. It takes a bit of practice, but you will get equally good crema if you match the grind to your tamp pressure.

Low water pressure, so takes ages to produce a cup of coffee. Has been de-scaled regular


If you get good flow with the portafilter out, you may need a new pump. When you descale do you run the descaler through the brew head? That is one problerm that people make is running the descaler through both the wand and the brew head. Sclae will build up in the pipe in the brew head and restrict it.

The brew unit is not tamping the ground coffe properly.


Give the brew unit a good wash,then lube all the moving parts with food grade grease.
If you are able dismantle the brew unit and wash in warm soapy water,this removes coffee and any old lubricant.

Remove the shower screen and make sure it is clear, then remove the screws on the top panel, If after checking screen problem still occurs, find the tube that leads to the head and make sure it is not blocked.

Water sitting in fill area after brewing done


A clean coffee maker is essential to good coffee. Residue of stale coffee oils will interfere the brewing that caused only little to produced. It is suggest regular cleaning of your coffee maker according to manufacturer recommendation.
I took everything out, got a small piece of fine sandpaper, held the plunger in with a pencil, turned on the grinder and sanded the round top portion of the grind basket driver. It takes a few times to get a good snug fit that’s still easy to remove.
The instruction manual that came with the pot will tell you to use one cup (measuring cup) of "white vinegar" and fill the rest of the reservoir with regular water. Turn it on and let it perk the mixture through the system. Then perk a couple of pots of plain water to flush out the rest of the vinegar.
The books say to do this once a month to keep things clean and the coffee tasting great.
A professional machine that is plumbed into a water supply must be thoroughly disassembled, and each part soaked in acid, and manually cleaned. Unless your water is exceptionally hard (you should have a water softener inline with the machine in hard water areas) this should only need to be done every 5 years or so. Heads and screens and filters should be soaked every day in a cleaning solution available from any professional machine supplier. A machine that is not plumbed should have a small amount of Puly brand cleaner added to its tank, and run through several cycles every 3 months. Puly is available thru machine suppliers, but there are also several other brands that do the same. Visit your local coffee machine shop for a good cleaner.


Hope this may help;

Temperature adjustment?


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
