Question about Breville ESP8XL Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Steamer My steamer has been working fine. But now the the thumping noise will start but no steam will be produced and then the thumping stops and nothing happens. When I turn the machine off of steam, it produces a loud hissing noise, which is normal. So why am I not getting steam to come out of the steamer? Thank you for any suggestions!

Hi,

Take off the edge on the steam pipe, clean it and mount it again.

Trey -
It sounds as if the water pump has gone bad. If the machine will not put water out of the hot water spout or the steam spout, and there is no water in the base of the machine (leaking from pump) then the pump is not putting out any pressure. The sound you hear is the pump running - but no pressure behind it.

The steamer dosen't work at all. When the knob is


First you should remove the end tip of the steam hose and try to clean the steam holes with a pin. The steam should come frealy withou the end tip. If not then you shoul desasemble the steam tap , clean it and put it back together. The problem is only caused by dry milk or milk with chocolate. Even if you manage to have some steam then the problem can be solve by using the steamer warming just water in a glass and leave it all nigh long inside the boiling water in glass this will meld the dirt and will gos away.

How strong should the output for the cappucino/ latte steamer? Mine just sort of dribbles the steamed milk. Thanks


When steaming the milk/cream make sure to hold the rubber nozzle to the very bottom of the cup and also make sure you are leaving enough water to produce the steam after brewing a cup of espresso. Also you'll want to check the breather tube that sticks up from the nozzle and make sure it is free of buildup.When the steamer is operating correctly it should produce a loud growling sound.

Francis francis milk steamer not operating


Steamer tubes can get plugged up with dried milk and/or calified water deposits in the tube.
With the machine unplugged, turn the tube up to check it, Clean it with a small guage wire.
Soak it in a small cup of vinegar, if needed.
Further cleaning, you can add a bit of vinegar to the water and steam it thru...
Let me know how it goes.

Leaking water from steamer


For the grouphead check the basket there might be a slight bump around the edge that is preventing it from making a good seal when it contacts the gasket in the head. If the Double works fine then the gasket is not the problem.
For the steam wand try flushing wand for 3 seconds just before steaming, if that does not help with the watery milk, then the boiler is not getting hot enough to produce steam.

No steam!


Ran into the same problem on mine just after using the steam, so it definetely wasn't clogged... hope this helps.

Just try running the expresso maker through a full cycle and then try the steam again. Not sure if the machine air locked or something, but the expresso cycle appeared to get the water flowing again and then it had no trouble producing steam.

Hope it works.

The Steam Mechanism Won't Operate


hi there,

I too am having a similar problem with my breville espresso machine. Whereby i used to be able to froth the milk with no problems but these past couple of days, the steam button light is illuminated, when i turn the knob to steam the milk, the steam button's light goes off and the hot water gets illumintaed and all i get is hot water. It also does not make that thumping noise it usually does just before the steaming begins. Please help!

I have tried clenaing it, letting the hot water run for a few minutes (not just seconds) but still the issue isn't resolved. I am thinking about taking it back to the manufacturer as it is still under warranty. Only prob is they are on the other side of the state :o(

Many thanks,
Alison
