Question about Breville BES840XL the Infuser Espresso Machine

1 Answer

My breville espresso machine is not sending water through the tank, how can I fix this?

I'm turn the machine on, have water in the tank, but no water will come out via the steam, water spout or espresso head. Trying the durogel decalcifier but that is not working either.

Contact an Authorised Breville service agent and ask them. I doubt it will be a problem that is going to be fixed by button pressing on the outside, someone is going to need to do some dismantling to find out where the water stops.

DISPENSING SPOUT ON ECM20 IS CLOGGED


It's probably clogged up with hard water deposits. Fill the water reservoir with plain white vinegar and put the espresso pot in place as usual, but do not load coffee! Run as usual for making espresso.You may have to run a couple of tanks, until the vinegar is pretty much colorless. Then run a couple of tanks of water to flush the vinegar. If your machine has a steam valve for frothing milk, put the steamer pot under it and open the valve as well. Over time, the steam valve can clog up with milk solids, called casein, which is actually a form of organic plastic.

After completing a descale the machine no longer pumps water through the shower head thing (the bit where you screw the coffee holder bit on. Sorry about my technical jargon. The machine still pumps out...


The water spray head is clogged up with pieces of scale. You'll have to take it off and rinse it out. If necessary, use a pin to pick the scale out of the holes in the spray head.

No water coming out


Sounds like the gaskets need replacing.
A faulty steam solenoid can cause no water from the group head too

There is no steam or water coming from nozzel


First check the end of the spout to make sure it is not blocked, also check the parnello for blockage. If both of those are clear and when the knob is open you can hear the pump trying to work then it is blocked at either at the valve entrance or at the wand entrance.

The steamer on our Espresso machine is not working


Try using a paperclip or needle to clear out the holes on the end of the steam wand. That will usually work if when you turn on the wand it is hot to the touch and you can still get hot water from the coffee spout.
