Breville870xL loud noise when press brew buttons

The noise is caused by a (so-called 'magnetic' or sometimes 'three-way') solenoid valve's piston/plunger not seating properly or jamming when the solenoid is energized. This can be caused by too much gap between the plunger and the cylinder it's in, by roughness in the finish of the parts, or wear and tear - and indicates a faulty solenoid valve.

A bad solenoid isn't something that's repairable. It needs to replaced. There are two solenoid valve assemblies in that model, make you you get the correct one.

We have a stainless steel french press coffee barista from Starbucks, which we purchased in 2003. We need to replace the mesh plunger. Look for options in replacing that part

I have a 2003 press that I love. The mesh plunger works fine, but the little "handle" to push down has broken off. Could you use my plunger to fix yours? I think I'm going to have to buy a whole new one so I don't mind selling you the part.
If so, contact me at emailjunky (at) mac dot com

Threre are 3 parts, I don't know which goes

Slide the glass part (recipient)in the plastic part (with the handle). Put the amount of coarsely ground coffee you want in it. Pour hot water in it, stir with a spoon wait for a few minutes then put the 3rd part (lid and plunger/filter) on. Push on the round part slowly -- keeping the rod upright, this will push the coffee grains down. Make sure the striped open part of the lid is align with the exit part and you can now pour your coffee into a cup. Demos are available on Youtube:

Rebuilding the brewing part

Sounds like either the side protector plate is not secure, or the tamping unit is miss aligned. Otherwise just check the protector plate is in the correct place

Every French press i have bought works well the first couple of times then the screen on the press bends and creates air pocket which when pressing explodes coffee grinds and hot water everywhere!

The trick with any manual French Press coffee maker is to very slowly press the plunger down, after you've allowed the ground coffee to steep/brew for the time you prefer.

I've got an older French Press carafe and had my share of "bent" screens from being too quick when pressing. I finally learned that the slower I pressed the better the unit would survive and the better quality of coffee I'd get as a result.

French Press coffee is not a quick process, what with the boiling water and fresh ground coffee beans and the steeping/brewing dwell time needed to get the hot water infused with the coffee and the very slow pressing filtering process needed to extract the full flavor of the coffee from the ground coffee and water.

Take your time in pressing your coffee and enjoy the great, fresh taste from your efforts.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Filter Basket pops open while grinding and brewing

Put the handle to the basket, that holds the coffee grounds toward the front.  If it is not facing front it will pop open.

Barista Athena No water comes out the head?

A good operating pump will fill the tubes in 2 seconds. Sometimes the spring loaded check ball in the pump assembly (brass tube) gets stuck. It can be unstuck by disasdsembly or high pressure air application.Unplug unit before opening the top or any inspection. The brass tube unscrews from the angle fitting, then release the rubber mount by depressing the white tab and slide it out. Note slowly and carefully the positions of springs, ball, plastic plunger and rubber washers.Look closely at the holder for the brass tube and you will see that it releases with a push and turn. The white plastic spring retainer in the brass tube unscrews with small forseps or two toothpicks. That spring should be weak and you should just be able to blow a little air by mouth (one way) through the tube if assembled correctly. I use a toothpick to push the stuck plastic valve out and scrape the calcified deposits off..

Repeat error message

I've been through this with my Dacor coffee machine. I believe there is NO fix! Dacor replaced my entire plunger assembly and now it keeps sticking. The too much coffee error has gone but now I'm getting a persistent group error because of it getting stuck. I agree with "lilyfish" I wouldn't have purchased it either and to boot they have stopped making coffee machines!!! I'm looking at a Miele now.
