    I contacted Breville. While I was waiting for a response from them, I cleaned the one cup and two cup filters with a toothbrush and the machine worked. Breville's solution was to clean the filters, which I had already done and it was the right solution. Thanks, Guru.

Hi,

Make sure the filter is clean, that in the holder and in the machine. If it is clean then i think your pump have to be replaced:-(

You either missed a seal when reassembling, or did not get a tight seal (may be "cocked") when you reassembled it. In other words, no pressure due to lack of seal.

My understanding is that this is normal with units like the ESP8XL which use a pressurized portafilter. Non-pressurized units will leave a dry puck of used grounds.

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.

Obviously the problem is with your grind, not the Breville. SImply adjust your grind to finer.
Good luck!
