Hi,

i think you have to replace the gasket where the water tank fits, it´s very tight there, you have to take off the bottom from the machine then you will see two screw, loosen this.

Now can you put down your hand in the hole and take of the plastic above the gasket.

Hope this will help you.

HI
I would suspect the seal on the machine where the tank sets on the machine. There is a plastic cap that looks like a doughnut, that will pry off (there are 2 hooks, 1 on each side). The seal is under neath. If you can stick your finger in the center of the seal and lift it out it needs to be replaced. When you put the new one in, run your finger nail around the outside edge of the seal to get it to slip in or you could damage the new seal.

My breville cafe roma wand is not steaming it is just making air bubbles


Have you tried cleaning out the machine? My steam wand started just spraying out a steady stream of water but was not heating up. I used the cleaning solution CLR (8 parts water, 1 part CLR) and let it run through the steam wand for awhile. At first it just kept streaming out then all of a sudden it stopped. I still kept it on just to see what would happen. After about 10 seconds all of a sudden the steam wand shot out whatever had clogged it and it works perfectly again! I had only used the machine about 10 times before this happened. I had not been cleaning it well after each use back then. Now I definitely do.

Miele CVA 610 coffee system says "water system fault" can I fix myself?


Hi I,am not 100% familiar with this model but the machine thinks the is a leak. Remove water tank the should be a hole visible under tank place finger in hole and check for water. If so remove water with syringe etc. Leak most likely cause tank incorrectly fitted or faulty seal on tank. If water tank seal OK, Remove water with syringe etc appliance will work. As a precaution remove lid and run you should be able to see any leaks. If not look for white stains on components. If no leaks or stains found it's was most likely tank incorrectly fitted.

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.

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 Cafe Roma does not pump, or build up enough pressure to push the water through the coffee. Help.


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:-(

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.
