Question about Breville ESP8XL Espresso Machine

Leaking Breville Esp6

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.

My Breville BES400XL espresso is leaking by the frother spout when I make coffee. Which seal can cause this and how can I replace it using which tools? Thank you very much.

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

Im looking at buying a mcahine but the seller has told me that the macjhine has a step foot error on it and she hasnt bothered to have it fixed would it be worth buying

hi. you could be buying a major problem. i would tell her to get it fixed before you buy it, and offer to pay the cost of the repair. at least that way, you know the machine is working before you buy it.

I bougth a new Breville ESP6X and It did not comes with the user guide. How I can get it?

If you are in the USA visit and search for the manual there.

If you are in another country then start at the main breville site, and then go to your country site from there. Search for Support, its sometimes at the bottom of the main screens.

They have a feature called "The Living Manuals" where they provide manuals for products.

Hope you can find yours.

When we push brw, the water comes out the bottom.. where can w get a manual for instruction usuage.

Please do not attempt to use the machine.
If water is leaking it could cause electrical shock, or further damage the machine.
In this case it is best to contact Breville customer support.

My Breville BB380 Breadmaker trips power switch when going baking

When was the last time that you used the bread machine? If it has been in storage for a period of time, it is likely that the element has absorbed moisture. As soon as it starts baking, the element goes into action, and because it's "leaking to earth" the machine will trip your circuit breaker.

I recommend taking the machine to your local Breville Service Centre (locate via as the machine is still quite repairable. If the Service Centre is unable to dry out your element though the elements are no longer repairable.

Good luck!

THIRD leaking Rowenta

Try buying a cheap one from wallmart or some similar store. They are not too dear so you can use them until they fail and then buy another cheap one.

Broken Nutone central vacuum unit

most of those systems are plumbed with PVC, but some do use flex throughout the home...
If yours is PVC, visit your nutone dealer and get a new outlet/elbow.
Trim the old elbow off with a drywall saw or other small saw (if you have a sawsall, that is fine) and glue the new one in
if it is flex tubing, it's easier; the elbow threads on. just be sure to hold the tubing so it doesn't drop down,

No steam or pump noise

get a used starbucks barista by saeco for a couple'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!

I have a expresso machine ESP6. it is not letting out enough steam or frothing milk. what's the problem and how to fix it?

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.
