Question about Breville Die Cast 800ESXL Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Hi, when the machine indicates it is still heating, and the brew dial is in the centre position (neither steam nor brew), hot water comes into the drip tray rather than building pressure to brew coffee. Neither the steam nor the hot water mode lights seem to activate. Water will go through the filter shower when I have no coffee in the filter, but the machine doesn't seem to finish heating/building pressure

One or more of the seals have failed on the boiler unit (Item 251 at link below) and these are no longer available as a replacement part.

Depending on your technical ability you could look at opening the unit and checking for any visible leaks or faulty seals that you may be able to replace with an equivalent part.

My caffitaly S 23 does not dispense hot Millikan after the coffee has dispensed. Just hot steam and a little bubbly hot water. I have cleaned it it and will dispense milk and the next cup doesn't.


First; I am NOT a Caffitaly repairman. Though I have worked on mini espresso machines. Sputtering and/or poor steam is an indication that your brewer is not up to brewing temperature.
** Most of these home machines have a very small boiler or tank. They are designed to produce hot water and sometimes steam to brew a small 'European' espresso. Here in the USA we like our coffee weaker and with lots of 'other' things mixed in. The 'Americano' is the same amount of coffee but with a lot of hot water added. This amount will tax the small boiler to it's limits. Top it off with a grande latte would be probably be beyond it's ability to completely froth/heat this amount of milk. When you order a Latte from a Barista you will note that it takes a while to froth a Pitcher of cold milk. They are using a large espresso machine and probably pulling a double shot of espresso. To make a similar drink with any home machine requires doing everything 'double' or twice brew. (3 times?) You will need to check the 'ready' light to make sure the brewer is up to heat prior to brewing your next cup.
** Suggest brewing a regular size or 1/2 a mug of coffee-latte then come back again later for another fresh hot cup.

Bunn pour omatic commercial coffee maker will not brew and it leaks


VPR is a pour over "Volume Displacement" brewer. Required to completely fill the inner tank and heat prior to using brewer. BEFORE plugging in unit, water must be poured into upper tray and with brew funnel and empty pot in place. Keep pouring water into top fill tray until water drips out of brew funnel. Plug in VPR and allow it 15-20 mins to heat up. leave the pot as there may be additional water dripping. Remove power if there is any water spilling out from other places like the top pan cover or bottom of machine. With the initial heating done, take a full pot of water and slowly pour into the top filling tray. HOT steaming water should come out of the brew funnel to fill the (empty) pot. Prep is done and the machine can be used to brew a pot after 10-15mins of reheat time.
*** the machine you have needs to be checked for leaks in areas mentioned above. Water should only come out of brew funnel (if not present then the brew head or if that is missing then the brew pipe. All will need to be replaced prior to brewing.) Leaking under machine is an indication of leak(s) in pour tray,tank,tank cover, gasket, probe gasket. This machine like any used equipment should be checked out by qualified tech prior to use. Be aware that coffee vendors sometimes rent or loan brewers to customers.

Water is hot but it does not brew the coffee.


Hi. How do you know that the water is hot if it wont brew coffee. They have different boilers to do each function. Hot water function. steam function and brew funtion. Sounds to me that you have a clogged brew unit. If hot water is coming from the water outlet, the you do have a fault with the brewing side of things. Dazza REPAIRER

Steam dial turns on in the middle of coffee brewing. Brewing stops. Have to hold dial to prevent it from turning. Saeco Go Plus II


The brewing pressure will backfeed into the steam circuit if you forget to turn off the power for the steam on most units. That combined with calcification in the valve will cause it to open. I don't know if this is your particular problem.
I would really recommend you don't ever put tap water, and definitely never put "magic" water (Kangan, etc.) into an espresso machine. Both will screw it up proper. I never put anything but steam distilled water in my machine, and I have never had to run vinegar through it. It's inexpensive, and will save you a lot of trouble.
A lot of calcium in the valve, or in the brewing circuit would most likely allow the valve to be forced open, even without the steam heating element on.

The brew group is stuck and will not come out


I hope one of this two solutions solve your problem.

1- The brew group is out of place. Turn the machine on. Close the service door.
The brew group is automatically placed in the correct position.

2-Coffee grounds drawer is inserted. Remove the dregdrawer first, then the brew
group.

Gaggia titanium. The water and steam are all going through the brew head instead of coming out the wand when I need it to. I have cleaned everything, used a pin to clean the wand (it didn't need it) ONE...


This is hard to picture. The only way water can come out the brew spout is if the brewing mechanism inside in the position to make coffee. The only way to get that mechanism into that position is to either select one of the three coffee buttons (you'd hear the grinder run, then you'd hear the motor putting the brew mechanism into place and then the pump start and water would then come out the brew spout. OR to select preground coffee and then select one of the three coffee sizes - in that case you wouldn't hear the grinder but you'd still hear the motor turn the brew mechanism into brewing position and then start the pump.
When you simply select hot water and then open the steam valve - I can't imagine any possible way for water to come out the brew spout.
Now if you mean that you don't see any water come out but water is leaking inside the cabinet and ending up in the drip tray - then that would mean a leak inside the machine. It could be the valve that the brew group locks into when it goes into brew position (you see this valve in a little recess behind the brew mechanism when you take the brew group out to clean it). Or it could be a leaking steam valve or hose inside.
You might try getting a flashlight and a cleaning brush - take out the brew mechanism and then clean around that little nozzle/valve that is in the recess just the left of center behind where the brew mechanism was. That valve should shut when you are not in brew position and not allow any water out - but it may be gummed up with coffee grounds.
If you are feeling brave - you would need a deep socket and a lot of patience with a small breaker bar (a ratchet head is too big to fit in there) and you can remove that nozzle/valve and then clean it or replace it. But it is very slow going to remove it (there must be some special tool they use at the factory). I had just the right size deep socket (like what you'd use for a spark plug in a car) but there wasn't room for a ratchet so I had to use a small breaker bar and I could only turn the valve about 1/4 turn at a time then I'd have to reposition the socket to do another 1/4 turn. It took 5-10 minutes to remove it - then it was easy to clean. I think you could clean it in place with a stiff bristle brush and some q-tips.
I don't know if that valve is the problem - but that's the only thing I can think of that would have your hot water and steam running into your drip tray instead of out the steam wand.

I have a new Saeco Odea Giro Coffee Machine and have turned it on for the first time. I followed the instructions but the red alarm light is flashing and no "steady flow of water comes out of the wand". I...


Is it the red light flashing and the water button light also on? That means air in the system.If the flow of water is not steady, make sure water tank is fully push in.
The next thing you can check is the test mode which is not given in the manual.Hold down water button and switch on the machine,you will see the lights turning on alternately in anti clockwise direction. Release the button.Turn the dial to the right and press the coffee button, water pump will work.Turn on the steam/water knob and keep pressing the coffee button until all the air is purge out. Dial on other positions will test other components of the machine,such as grinder, solenoid valve , brew group,etc: I hope you can solve your problem with this information.

Expresso comes out warm not hot what is problem


The magic delux has only one boiler so if you are getting hot water and steam, then it could be that the cup used to brew into is taking the heat from your espresso, trly warming up the cup before brewing into.

No coffee coming out, just hot water


Two questions:
1- Is the coffee grounds wet or dry?
2- Does the spout drip water when the machine is just heating up?
If the grounds are dry then the brew chamber is not getting any water. Turn machine off, let it cool down, then remove brew unit. Behind the brew unit there is a white valve with 2 red o-rings(sometimes black), if you look closely there is a small lever between the o-rings, get a small screwdriver and gently lift lever and spring, if water came out then the problem is in the brew unit, unscrew the stainless steel screen which is under the large red O-ring on the brew unit and clean, also make sure the tube on the unit is clear.
If the hot water spout is not dripping when the machine is heating up then you're good.

Delonghi EC 155 general help


You don't have to wait 15 mins. just a few minutes, then run some hot water to warm up the portafilter and dry it up, fill it up with coffee and when you get the gree light again, make your espresso . You will have to have a good fine coffee and make sure to pack the coffee really good and don't leave any around the edges , so could make a good seal. If you have steam coming out of the machine , is maybe to hot and is ready to brew . Cool down the machine after use, run water through it and let the steam out of the nozzle.
