Hi, I am attempting to repair a leaky Breville that hasnt been used for quite a while. I had a broken 'elbow' so was told to buy a new elbow,and a flat rubber gasket which fits underneath the elbow.
Now the problem is that the original broken elbow (upon taking machine apart) appeared not to have this gasket. I have replaced the elbow as I was told but the machine now doesnt let any water flow at all. It makes the pumping noise but no steam or water comes out.
Should I throw this gasket away or is there some other solution.

Hi you need philips and blade screwdrivers and maybe star bits (2.5mm and 3mm) and a shifting spanner. Might be a solenoid operated steam tap. If it is replace the solenoid if you cant pull it apart. If its a spindle tap, it will be just an o'ring. Dazza REPAIRER
If your coffeemaker appears to be clogged. Create a vinegar and water solution and flush the concoction through your coffeemaker pump. This will help dissolve build up in your coffeemaker. If you do this once a month, your coffeemaker pump won't clog.Unplug the coffeemaker and inspect the pump valve. Water won't rise through the fill tube if the pump valve is stuck or broken. If your pump is sealed, replace the pump. If the pump valve is accessible, make sure there are no coffee grounds or mineral deposits around it. Also check the brewing switch is in good working order. Remove the base plate on your coffeemaker and test the switch with a volt-ohm meter. Set your volt-ohm meter on the RX1 scale. If your switch reads zero ohms, your switch works fine. If it reads anything other than zero, replace the switch. Also take a look at the tube connectors, if your coffeemaker is sputtering, leaking or steaming. Leaks in pump coffeemakers are often due to faulty tube connectors. Unplug the coffeemaker and fill the reservoir with water. If water leaks from an elbow, clean the mating surfaces before replacing it. If your water leaks from a tube connector, replace the tube and mating elbow to ensure a good fit.

You may have a broken silicone seal, or a cracked filter ring. You can see an example of the small cracks on the ring on a photo at this website: http://www.vancouverwireedm.com/caferomadiyt.htm , just under the screw hole in the top corner.
The wand is relatively easy to remove. Thing is whether you have the right tools. If you can find stubby phillips and flat screw drivers, the job will be much easier.
You first have to remove the trim that surrounds the pod and where it covers part of the wand.
The wand is held down by a flat-headed short screw. It might take a few tries to remove this screw due to calcification over the years. Once removed, the wand should just slight out. Check if the o-rings need to be replaced as well.
get a used starbucks barista by saeco for a couple hundred...you'll be pleased. (know i am-and i only paid $25 for my year old breville esp8xl POS). verify it works-it will probably last longer & perform better. if inclined/capable, maybe you can replace the pump yourself (a new one's prob in $35-$40 range; if more, scrap the machine or sell it "as is" for parts & put the money toward a better machine. good luck!
The steaming wand's tip gets gunked up with milk so make sure to clear that with a needle first. Make sure the machine is fully heated before using the stream function (should have an indicator light). Typically this model will expel water first, then a low pressure steam. After about 30 - 40 seconds it should produce meduim pressure steam. Make sure the pump is making the proper clunk, clunk sound or it could be failing. Also, the steam wand arm may be obstructed and descaler solution will have to be used to remove the deposits. Hope this helps.
