No espresso or steam comes out. Pumps briefly then stops. Lights go on as if ready but nothing happens. Machine has been 'slowing down' over the past few weeks. Have tried cleaning everything we can find.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: My Breville800ESXL makes steam but does not make espresso.

jejones is right. try a coarser grind. it still makes great espresso, especially if you really pack a lot of ground coffee into the filter basket. Just make sure it is a bit coarser than you would normally use for machines without the dual wall filter basket.

SOURCE: Popping sound following by large bursts of steam

the machine is building too much steam so the safety is blowing off, there might be a thermostat on the machine that is not telling the elements to turn off at the correct temperature. Use ohms meter to check thermostats.

SOURCE: My machine blinking on steam, the wand does not

When it is blinking on steam it means it is preparing the unit for steam. When the steam light goes solid your unit is ready to make steam.

  • Turn from standby to steam then wait for steam light to go solid.
  • When solid steam wand will begin dribbling then spitting out water, which will then turn to steam.
  • When it begins to steam, turn back to standby. NOTE: you only have 6 seconds before steaming turns off.
  • place steaming wand in jug and turn from standby back to steam.
You will hear pumping noises when you turn off your steam, because it releases the steam and puts the excess water in to the drip tray.
  • make sure your bean hopper is properly locked in to the unit. Grinder won't work if hopper not locked in.
  • Make sure your water filter has been prepped and locked securely in to the reservoir and your reservoir is filled.
  • Use fresh beans.
  • Sounds funny but use good quality water, do not use ordinary tap water. Make sure it is filtered or use bottled water (cooler bottles).
  • Try to grind your beans to a good consistancy.
  • Breville recomends about 10kg tamping pressure, use a set of scales to check the feel.
  • Tamp to about 3-5 mm below rim of grouphead (portafilter). Or the tamp has a guide on the side, that silver side on the tamp is the tamp line. Pretty vauge about that in the book.
If all else fails go to www.breville.com.au and check your model and watch some of the vid clips.

Hello The lights on the front of the machine wont stop flashing so I can't press the cup symbols to make coffee. The hot water is coming out though through the steamer spout. Thanks!


Circuit Priming
When the machine operates for the first time and when
all the water has been dispensed, the machine circuit
needs priming. In this case, the 4 buttons of the control
panel will flash at the same time.
• Press the ON/OFF button . The 4 buttons will
flash.
• Place a container under the cappuccinatore.
• Open the "hot water/steam" knob by turning
it anticlockwise.
• Press the hot water button.
• Wait for water dispensing to stop.
• Close the "hot water/steam" knob by turning it
clockwise. Remove the container.
When the first priming ends, the warming up
starts. Before brewing coffee, water and steam,
please wait for lights 15 and 16 to be permanently on.
The machine is now ready to brew coffee and dispense
steam. Please see related sections for operating details.
Note: if priming is not completed, the 4 buttons
will keep on fl ashing. The machine cannot be
used.

Takes a long time to steam milk. water comes out of the brewing head while steaming milk


i'll preface this by saying i have never used a strarbux machine, but I have used dozens of others (daily habit for 18 years now)

when are you trying to get your steam (ie before or after brewing the espresso)
If you have been trying before, wait till after (if your machine does not let you turn off the espresso output then when the coffee starts to slow down (just past the peak of flow).
It should take only a few seconds to steam the milk. (also the closer to the surface of the milk that the steam is released the frothier the milk will get)

Starbucks sirena lights won't turn on


Just had this happen. Finally I let water run through the steam wand (thought it had to heat up first). Water ran through (until blue light stopped blinking) and now the other lights are blinking...we will see if it works now.

No water moves thru machine - no coffee, no steam


Try this, turn machine off then open the steam wand all the way, and turn the machine on.This will force the pump to work. If nothing happens, and none of the lights come on then the machine is defective.

After descaling stuck in infinite loop


Hi,

How old are your machine?
How often do you descale the machine?

I think it can be the flowmeter in the machine that needs to be replaced.
Try to descale the machine to see if it help.

Best regards
