The water temp is adjusted by the temp selector switch which controls the water inlet valve. If the solenoids on the valve stick the temp won't be as selected. If you get cold when you select warm the hot valve is not opening to mix with the cold. The valves are on the back where the water hoses connect to the washer.

Water leakage through grounds when lever is raised on my La Pavoni Europiccola.


Hi your grind is to course and or your tamp is to loose. Even with the right grind and tamp water will filter down through the puck eventually.

all the best

I can achieve normal pressure only by using dual wall baskets.


The grind is too coarse or the tamping is too light, or a combination thereof. Use some bathroom scales to get your tamping pressure right and then adjust the grind accordingly.

My EM100 Espresso Maker will not brew? Water comes out when no portafilter on, but not when filter on for brewing? Help!!


This is a complex problem. 1. remove, check and clean brewhead (round screen above portafilter where water comes out); it can become clogged with gunk. 2. brewhead gasket may be old or damaged, they can be purchased on eBay. 3. brewing basket may have become clogged, I don't know if running cleaner solution through it will help, may have to replace it. 4. Likeliest source of problem is coffee ground too fine and/or tamped down too hard. These are not professional level machines and cannot work with very fine grind or heavy tamping. Try a coarser grind and a light tamp with the larger brew basket. Coffee must be ground with good quality burr grinder for correct consistency. John Saxon/

My machine blinking on steam, the wand does not want t o steam, the espresso does not pour. The knob is turned on stand by , but still some steaming noise comes, but no steam comes from the wand, nor...


When it is blinking on steam it means it is preparing the unit for steam. When the steam light goes solid your unit is ready to make steam.

  • Turn from standby to steam then wait for steam light to go solid.
  • When solid steam wand will begin dribbling then spitting out water, which will then turn to steam.
  • When it begins to steam, turn back to standby. NOTE: you only have 6 seconds before steaming turns off.
  • place steaming wand in jug and turn from standby back to steam.
You will hear pumping noises when you turn off your steam, because it releases the steam and puts the excess water in to the drip tray.
  • make sure your bean hopper is properly locked in to the unit. Grinder won't work if hopper not locked in.
  • Make sure your water filter has been prepped and locked securely in to the reservoir and your reservoir is filled.
  • Use fresh beans.
  • Sounds funny but use good quality water, do not use ordinary tap water. Make sure it is filtered or use bottled water (cooler bottles).
  • Try to grind your beans to a good consistancy.
  • Breville recomends about 10kg tamping pressure, use a set of scales to check the feel.
  • Tamp to about 3-5 mm below rim of grouphead (portafilter). Or the tamp has a guide on the side, that silver side on the tamp is the tamp line. Pretty vauge about that in the book.
If all else fails go to www.breville.com.au and check your model and watch some of the vid clips.

The coffee grind is too fine, or you are tamping too hard, First remove the portafilter and press the brew button if water flows move on if not remove the shower and clean. Now that we have a nice flow of water without the portafilter. Now we will add coffee to the portafilter, and level it out, do not tamp and try to run a coffee, if that works then the Tamp is the problem, if you tamp and still have the problem then the grind is too fine.

Water flow is slow and noisy


The pump is a vibratory pump and it will make some noise.

Take the lid off the reservoir and watch at the hose coming from the relief valve (the short hose).
Pull a shot.
If water comes out of the hose, the relief valve is opening on high pressure. The pump gets extra noisy on high pressure too. This happens when the water flow is blocked due to coffee ground too fine, coffee tamped too hard, pluggage somewhere.
Pull another shot but this time with the basket removed from the portafilter.
If there is still water coming out of the short hose, you need to descale the machine. If there is not water com ing out of the hose and the pump is quieter, adjust your grind or your tamp.

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.

Pump makes strange staccato sound at 1 second intervals. A little coffee dribbles out. Then it just shuts itself off. Seems to be a pressure problem?


Check the grind on the coffee or the packing pressure used to tamp. If it flows great without coffee in the portafilter, then the problem is the grind or tamp. The grind might be too fine that the pump has to use so much pressure that the relief valve open and most of the water goes into the drain tray.

Shots too watery


1, Check the grind on the grinder. Imagine grounds as rocks and sand, if you are using rocks then the water will run too fast and with sand it will run too slow.
2, If using an automatic machine(water volumes are pre-measured), check to make sure that you are getting the correct volume(3ozs fro a 2ozs shot, and 4ozs for a 3ozs shot), an once of water stays in the coffee during extraction.
3, Adjust the tamp(packing pressure) of the coffee, fill the portafilter with coffee a little over the top, then level it out and tamp to the fill ring on the inside of the basket.
