Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I have a Breville Die Cast Programmable Espresso Machine purchased a year and a half ago. I use it about twice a week. While heating the milk a couple of days ago, using the steam wand, there was a loud pop and water started to leak from a seam on top of the machine. It appears that the boiler popped. I have read many reviews on this machine and like those I have never felt that the water got hot enough to make "excellent" but okay coffee. Can the machine be repaired? Does it need to be replaced? The machine has never been overused or abused. What to do now! Any ideas?

    Thank you -- we will see if we can find a repair shop in our area. Is there a post somewhere that discusses this descaling process? I guess I never read anything about it before. Thanks again -- Karen

You have guess it right the boiler popped. This is cause due to calcium deposits inside the boiler, which actualy is a themoblock and is consist from a nurrow water chanel that boils the water instantly. This boiler consit from two parts top and bottom and in bettwen the boiler seal gasket which is the aprt that have popped.
So now you need to replace the complete boiler themoblock with new one. If you can do it or if the service and part cost is not more than the half of replacement new machine then we advice to fix it, other way go for a replacement.
In both case you must remeber to perform descaling minimum once a month no matter how frequnt you are using it.

Lost directions - how to descale keurig ?


Hello, Here is a tip i wrote, see if this helps you.



Have you ever wondered, 'how do I descale my expresso machine?' First lets us understand what is exactly is scaling. The build up of minerals inside the hot parts of your coffee machine or espresso machine is commonly called lime scale. When lime scale builds up inside the Espresso machine, it slows down the water flow, reduces the boiler capacity and can prevent your coffee machine from working properly. To keep your Espresso machine operational at full order, it is important to descale it every three months. The time intervals between descaling depend upon many factors. Quality of your water and the amount of water running through the machine are the two main factors that decide the frequency at which you should descale your Espresso machine. The more you your machine, more often should you descale it. In some cities, in conjunction with a water filter you can use your coffee machine for a year or more without descaling at all. If you use less water by drinking espressos you'll need to descale less often than if you make cappuccinos.


Descaling products are widely available from stores that sell coffeemakers and espresso machines. Be sure that the product you buy to descale your Espresso machine is intended for this specific use only. Before you descale your Espresso machine, always unplug it and make sure that it is cold. Also, never immerse the appliance in water and nor should you use abrasive cleaning products or scouring materials on any part of your Expresso machine. In case your Espresso machine does not come with a instruction guide or booklet, then use a proper citric acid based descaling solution designed for espresso machines. This should be mixed and prepared as per the instructions on the bottle or packet. Once your Espresso machine has been descaled properly you would not be left wondering, 'how do I descale my expresso machine?', treat yourself to a great cup of coffee. Some popular models of Espresso machines are Krups EA8080 Espresseria Automatic, DeLonghi Magnifica EAM3200S, Krups Nespresso CitiZ & Milk XN 7106 Fire-engine red, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5400, DeLonghi PrimaDonna ESAM6600, DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM4200S, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5500 and Magimix Nespresso Citiz M190.

Hello, I have a Delonghi Espresso Machine (EC 155). I bought it 17 days ago and I have used it twice in a day carefully. Everything was perfect with my machine until 3 days ago. Then I observed these...


Your machine is new and its under warranty you have rights to replace it with new one. Call your dealer where you brought it, it's either they will replace it or send a service technician.
It will void the warranty if you try to unscrew something.
I hope my advice gives you an idea regarding your unit problem.

The metal sleeve that fits over the frothing arm on our Breville Espresso machine, went down the disposal and got damaged. I can't find a replacement for it!


Here you go: http://www.ereplacementparts.com/breville-800esxl-diecast-espresso-machine-parts-c-116052_116055_116066.html
It's part number 156. Check it out on the diagrams they provide to verify. I have the same machine and am missing the exact same part, so I know exactly what you are talking about!

GFCI Trips After an Hour


It is possible that the extention cord is the problem. Over time wires will heat voltage will drop. Along with the added distance on the code the voltage drop cause a drain and trips the GFCI. Try replacing GFCI and also try opperating without the extension cord.

Stopped heating


You have not mentioned the make and model of the oven. Any way you can check if there is a fuse between the highvoltage terminal of the transformer and the high voltage capacitor. If it is blown off youcan replace it by similar value. Still it is not heating you have to replace the magnetron.

I would like to buy a breville cappuccino maker but hear the dial at side gets stuck and breaks easily,even when cleaned well after use. Has this been rectified. Doreen


Hi, apparently Brita, that owns Breville, did not fix the problem yet.
I can see that complains keep coming.
The problem is apparently on CM8 and CM9, the more expensive Cappuccino Maker BES200XL
does not have the problem.

One suggestion, Breville are nice budget coffe maker, if you want to spend some mor money on a better product buy a Gaggia or something similar. Italian coffee makers are usually the best for espresso/capuccino. If you want a Breville buy the ESP8XL Espresso Machine.
Here is another good brand.
