Cleaned the machine thoroughly, even replaced the head, and still no water pressure to brew coffee

And nothing happens. Then there is the power it is on. And all loose parts are where they should be? And all buttons that tell you what is happening are in the right place. Check if these things are OK Regards from Kolbrun

Bes820 when i connect power the machine starts pumping water into drip tray and this happens without pushing the power button i try pushing buttons but nothing changes the only way to stop the machine isto...

It's a common problem with this family of machines, mine does the same thing from time to time. There is a potential solution posted on this site somewhere, you might find it by searching for Breville 800esxl instead. The same article also appears here if you can't find it, but the format is messed up.

The fix is complicated, and you'd need to be competent with electronics repair, as it involves replacing a faulty zener diode in the controlling circuit board. Also, I'm not sure if it's going to work for the 820, as when I pulled my 820 apart and looked at the circuit board it didn't resemble the one shown in the article. There is a pretty good chance that they share a common component in this zener diode though, judging by the behaviour, so this circuit diagram will help if you want to have a go at fixing it. Replacing the entire control board would probably be achievable if you don't have the skills to replace the diode.

Also, dismantling the 820 will be a different process, which you can find in my other post here.

Personally, I just put up with the problem and turn it off at the wall if it won't *******.

I got a used one today and i can't seem to get it to turn on, nor can I get a manual up online?

Most of the Breville 800 esxl have this problem.I strongly believe,your problem is within the electronic printed circuit board.I've searched&searched the internet.There are no internal parts for it,Unless you are into electronics,your broblem is a zener diode that is shot,Good luck.

How do I get my breville cafe roma espresso machine to pump water out of the water tank and through the machine? It won't create steam or brew coffee and the water level in the tank won't deplete when the...

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 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 We received it 1 week after ordering. It was pretty easy to replace. Our machine works fine now.

FixmeBob Great help with Breville 800esxl

I had a similar problem, but no blinking light, only cold coffee. I tapped on the relay (black box on circuit board) and violá.  Red light, hot coffee, and happiness.  The machine did the same thing a couple of weeks after the "fix", and a good slap to the left side, and I was back in business.  My guess is that your switch is bad or sticking.  Good luck.

Machine won't turn on.

There is a post with a solution for this with the title: "Machine won't turn on - no power! " - fixmebob has a good solution, but you'll need to be a little tech savvy to perform it yourself. I was able to take the machine apart, but didn't know how to replace a diode. I ended up sending mine in for repair, which ended up being about $55 because I had to ship the machine. But good news is that I'm back up and running. Was a little nervous about shipping the machine, but it worked out fine. If you decide to take your machine to a service center, here's a link to the list on the Breville site:

Machine won't turn on - no power!

With the machine facing you, the circuit board is mounted on the left panel. Simply unscrew the grey plastic and you will see it inside a clear case.
The two grey conical inserts are recessed into the machine (next to where water drips out into the coffee), one on each side. Just use a long philip head screwdriver to unscrew them until they drop down.
They hold the top lid in place. Now push the top lid towards you,
pretty easy. Also take out the water tank in the back (the one swing out) to make room to access the circuit board. With the machine back facing you, open the water tank, use your finger to pull the plastic tap. One side of the tank will just drop, and just jiggle the tank out.

Remove the circuit board case, pull out all the wires with a piler,
they are sort of tight, but you can pull them out carefully. Label them so you won't mix them up.

With the circuit board out, I probed around with a multimeter. I found ZD6, a zener diode, part # 1N4749A didn't give me a 0.46V reading. (there is another zener diode with the same part # that gives 0.46V (ZD1). ZD6 is next to two blue electrolytic capacitors. Unsolder ZD6 from underneath and replace it.
It is like 5 cents, definitely not freaking $40.
