Question about Breville ESP8XL Espresso Machine

Open Question

Hi I have a Breville BES200XL Espresso Machine in the office. It's only a couple of months old. everyone uses it and they are saying that a little water is coming from underneath. Now it's not sitting on exactly a flat surface. the table is a little warped. told the people to check the drip tray and make sure the water tank is firmly in place. the only other thing i can think of is because not sitting exactly proper. the vibration when the machine is on is causing something underneath to loosen?? regards Art

SOURCE: breville ESP8XL Espresso Machine Cafe Roma leaking.. help please..

We had that happen and it was a crack in the black ring that holds the filter. Breville could not supply us with one but we found an OEM part in aluminum from http://www.vancouverwireedm.com/caferomadiyt.htm. We received it 1 week after ordering. It was pretty easy to replace. Our machine works fine now.

SOURCE: how do I get my breville cafe roma espresso

Same thing happened to me and I had to push down on the water tank a little more firmly. It looked like it was seated okay but I guess it needed to be pushed down more to open the little spring-loaded opening at the bottom.

Breville brew head seals are rather difficult to locate, but I personally stock them for ESP8XL & 800ESXL machines and sell them at a reasonable cost. I sell lots of new and used parts for various coffee machines, but specialize in Krups and some Breville. If interested in purchasing a Breville brew head seal, contact me at cowboy_romeo@yahoo.com and I'll make arrangements. I accept Paypal to make the transaction safe and secure for us both.

SOURCE: Espresso Machine Stopped Working

Mine stopped heating (pumped only cold water) and when I opened the top of the machine I noticed that the blue electrical cable to the thermal block assembly (probably to the thermal fuse, but I an not sure about that) corroded and was loose. I fixed the connection and since then the machine heats perfect.

I got through to the tech support at Breville and they helped me fix this problem. What they had me do was:

1)Fill the water tank all the way up

2)Turn the power on and wait until the heating light turns off.

3)without coffee in the head turn the machine to espresso mode and let it pump for a minute.

4)after a minute turn to standby for a couple seconds then turn it to steam mode for a minute.

5) after this minute is up turn it back to standby for a couple of seconds and then back to espresso mode.

6) the technician said to do this seven times, but mine started working after three or so. The tech said the fixes about 80 to 90 percent of machines with this problem.

Good Luck!

Breville Die Cast 800ESXL Espresso Machine: Problem... Watery espresso. My machine worked great for a year, then all the sudden, the espresso is watery and the basket where the grinds are is full of water...


Hi,

Personnaly, when I use the big filter, the grinds are dry after the extraction, but for the small filter, it's all soggy. If you look at the documentation, ( http://kitchen.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/breville/breville_coffeemaker_product_list.html) they say wet coffee grind after extraction is normal.
But did you change the coffee brand ? Or the grinding level ? How do you grind your coffee ? I had big troubbles once with a commercial grinder at my grocery store, it's when I decided to buy my own Breville grinder.

Good luck,

JF

No steam or pump noise


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!

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.

Makes espresso, coffee, water, but will not steam


The pump has gone bad - through use. This is a common problem, and has to do with the "seals" that are in the pump. Since the pump generates high pressure and heat, over time, the seals will fail, and will be unable to generate enough pressure and heat to create steam. The only remedy is to have the pump replaced through the Breville Out of Warranty repair centers.
