Question about Breville Die Cast 800ESXL Espresso Machine

2 Answers

Everything sounds like its working...but nothing.

If I turn the nobe to the right to get the water flowing, water will come out. But when I fill the thing the coffee grinds go in and turn the water nobe to the right, it sounds like everything is normal but no coffee. Whe I take the coffee thing of it's hard to turn and the pressure blows the coffee about a foot away from the machine. There is a little water in the coffee grind holder, but thats it.

Another thing might be your coffee is too finely ground or tamped too tightly.  If water comes through the filter basket, try using a little less coffee and tamping less firmly.  If that works, you're all set.  If you still have a problem, you may need to switch to slightly coarser grind.

It sounds like your filter is clogged.  This can be tricky to unclog, but use the pin that came with the machine.  I have had the most success when I use the pin and try to run H20 (no coffee) through the filter basket.  Sometimes takes several tries, but eventually blows out the clog.

    Yes. That is the real problem with Breville : clogging of the ONE small hole on the bottom of the outer wall(bottom) of the filter.

    I solved the problem by cleaning the filter thoroughly by inserting a very fine needle in the small hole, and by boiling the filter in in a solution of vinegar for 15 minutes.

    To prevent future clogging by fine coffee particles, I put a piece of towel paper in the bottom of the filter before filling it with ground coffee. I use paper tissue folded in 8 that I cut as circular discs with scissors. This gives me 8 round paper filters.

    I have used this method for over 2 years now, and NO MORE CLOGGINGS!

Why is my coffee weak?


If it is a drip maker, only gravity drives the hot water thru the coffee grinds. If the coffee is ground too fine, it immediately packs up and doesn't let water flow thru it and the water flows around the coffee instead of thru it.
Try using a coarser grind, and if not you can use a lot smaller amount of coffee and water. A smaller amount of coffee is easier to diffuse thru than a large amount.

Another thing is to slow down the water speed entering the coffee basket. I found the best way to do that is to use water just above freezing and place that extra cold water in the reservoir. The cold water takes extra time to be heated up by the coffee maker so less water is released over the coffee grinds per minute.

If your coffee maker overflows a lot, that is a good indicator that the grind is too fine and/or your coffee filters are too flimsy and are plugging up the channels in your coffee basket and the coffee can't enter the flask, so it overflows.

But the easiest way to check out your coffee maker is to use extra cold water and just run half batches (5 cup) of coffee instead of 10 cup

How do I clean my burr mill (Models BM1 and BM3)?


Always unplug your burr mill after use and before cleaning.
  1. Turn the whole bean chamber to the right until it can be lifted off the base. This will allow you to clean the grinding wheel. NOTE: Never use water or liquid for cleaning the lower grinding section of this appliance.
  2. Clean interior recesses with a soft brush (not provided).
  3. Wash the whole bean chamber and lid and the ground coffee chamber and lid in mild detergent and water. These items are only dishwasher safe on the top rack of your dishwasher. Wipe exterior with a damp cloth. Do not immerse mill in water or any other liquid or place in dishwasher. Use only non-abrasive cleaners to remove stains.
  4. After completely drying, replace whole bean chamber. Important: when replacing whole bean chamber, screw on completely before setting grinding rate. Turn chamber clockwise (as viewed from top), until it will not turn. Fill with whole coffee beans for grinding and replace lid.
  5. Replace ground coffee chamber and lid, making sure it snaps securely into place.

My Bunn coffee filter overflows during brewing. What a mess! Is there any way to slow down the water flow?


If this is a pour-over coffeemaker, you can't do anything about the flow. It's just gravity pushing the water out of the reservoir. But you can try using a coarser grind of coffee. If the grind is too fine (if you grind whole beans for too long in a blade grinder, for instance, or if you're using espresso grind coffee), the water can't flow through quickly enough and it backs up and overflows. Make sure your coffee is ground for a drip coffeemaker.

Saeco Incanto Rondo right red light is on and I cannot make coffee. The machine grinds the beans but does not dispense any coffee.


Try to set the machine to grind finer. Common problem with this machine when the grinder grinds too coarse, and the coffee will not fit in the brew unit during the cycle. Grinding finer will allow the brew unit to compress and the machine should complete the cycle.

If this does not work there may be another thing to try, Let me know [email protected]

Hi, Our Gaggia machine will not disburse water through coffee dispenser. Sounds like its operating normally till water flow should happen. Then the motor slows down to nothing. Have descaled to no effect....


Try this press the button for ground coffee then when it lights up press the coffee brew button, if water flows normally then the grind on the grinder needs to be adjusted coarser, if no water then the screen on the brew unit is blocked.

Grinding coffee but water not making coffee


Check to make sure the quantity button has not been reprogrammed. To do so, push and hold the coffee button until coffee flows through. Also be sure to check the brew-unit. In some cases if the b-unit is plugged, it will not allow water to flow through. Also check to be sure you are not grinding too fine, if coffee is too fine it too will plug the chamber...........Hope it helps.

Espresso machine will not make Espresso.


Try this remove the portafilter and press the brew button, if water comes out of head, machine is fine but the grind or the tamping(packing pressue) used on the coffee is not right. If you are grinding the coffee just before using it, try a coarser setting. If you pre grind at the store then try tamping the coffee lighter.

Over flow grounds without a cause


I have had two of these machines (warranty return) and they both did the exact same thing. Here is what I have discovered the problem to be.

The lid for the carafe gets stick and internally jams. As another poster suggested clean it thoroughly (this sometimes works). I have another solution. Call 1-800-726-0190 and explain that you lid jams and leaks all over your counter. They will send you an new lid for free no questions asked. They obviously are very aware of this situation and don't even ask for proof of purchase or purchase date.
