When brewing the water spills out over the filter holder from the brewing head on removal of the brewing head there is a rubber seal wich appears to have a piece removed i.e cut out of it is it supposed to be like this ?? or is this what is causing my problem?

Check to make sure the rubber gasket is still on the water output in the brew head. It goes around the water output needle in the top of the brew head. Without that gasket, there is no seal on the top of the k-cup and water can leak. Run it with no K-cup in it and see of water does not leak this way. If it doesn't leak then it points to a missing seal. Hope this works for you.
More than likley its your brew head gasket that is leaking. Take off the 4 nuts you hust tighten and it exposes the brew head gasket. Make sure that you put the chrome piece on the same way you took it off. Clean the head good before you put the new gasket on or you could have trouble.
I would check ebay.
If you've had the machine for a while, your brew head seal (gasket) is probably damaged or shrunken from age/heat and needs to be replaced. That's most likely why the filter holder moves and leaks while brewing. Breville brew head seals are rather difficult to locate, but I personally stock them and sell them at a reasonable cost. I sell lots of new and used parts for various coffee machines, but specialize in Krups. If interested in purchasing a Breville brew head seal, contact me at [email protected] and I'll make arrangements. I accept Paypal to make the transaction safe and secure for us both.
Remove the brew head. Pry out the metal coffee filter, then pry out the rubber gasket. There is a small black plastic insert that is likely gunked up with coffee buildup. Clean the parts well, reassemble, and then try again.
If you are a good "tamper", you can leave out the rubber gasket and plastic insert entirely, and just go with the the filter. It takes a bit of practice, but you will get equally good crema if you match the grind to your tamp pressure.
I have the same problem. I disassembled the unit body from the boiler. There was some scale, which I cleaned out. However, everything was flowing through the orifices with gravity -- no need to use a pipe cleaner because nothing is clogged.
So then I started tracing the flow of water. There is only one thing between the boiler and the shower head: the solenoid valve (in diagram ER0182 part # 27).
Sure enough, the solenoid valve will not accept water through the orifice that would route it to the shower head. Of course, this is with the solenoid unplugged and removed from the system. I soaked the orifice end of the solenoid valve in some decalcifiying solution in the hope that the solenoid piston may be jammed with a bit of scale.
Now I'm going to reassemble and hope for the best. However, my guess is that my solenoid valve needs to be replaced. Everything else is working (pump, valves, tubes, etc.).
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.
BrevilleUSA.com has a silicon seal (steam ring) to replace faulty or worn ones. There is no shipping charge, and they are $4 each. To replace the steam ring you'll need to remove the stainless spray disk on the brew head with a phillips screwdriver (one screw) and pull off the old ring (pay attention to the direction and placement of the stainless disk). Takes about 2 minutes to do.
Part # .800ESXL/192 Also, on mine I noticed that the filter holder was ground down at the factory a bit too much on one side, which causes a slight leak down one side (coffee, not water). You might check the holder (with the filter removed) for imperfections that could lead to your leak. Good luck.
