SOURCE: No water thru the group head

We were having the same problem and this worked for us, right from an insert that was included with the manual.

1. Fill tank with water
2. Remove the filter holder
3. open the steam tap
4. press the main switch and the coffee switch at the same time
5. close the steam tap as soon as water begins to flow
6. If after 30 sec. no water comes out repeat the operation.
7. when it starts, draw off 4 cups of water

This worked for us after we had about given up,

SOURCE: No steam, just hot water.

The steam wand has to be removed to be cleaned properly. Unfortunately, this procedure is not outlined in the manual. Just cleaning the wand on the outside or using a clip to clean the tip is not enough.

The other end of steam wand where it connects to the pressuring cabin actually swivels around a fitting. It is this fitting that you need to thoroughly clean. Years of using the machine can cause calcification around this fitting.

If you look under this end of hte steam wand, you should see a philllip-headed screw. Before you loosen this screw, you have to remove the grey trim so that the entire wand can be remove.

Once the entire wand is removed, what I just described will be much clearer.

I have the same problem. It appears to be caused by a worn steam wand gasket that's inside the steam wand assembly which can be unscrewed from the Breville machine. This was confirmed by the folks at Breville. They referred me to www.thegourmetdepotco.com. That website does not sell the steam wand gasket separately. They sell "Frother Assembly MOdel #800ESXL-250" for $14.95. With tax ($1.42) and shipping via USPS ($5.65), the total is $22.02. A very high price for the failure of a simple plastic washer, but it beats buying a new machine!

Ascaso Dream espresso machine leaks steam out of the brew head when the steam wand function is on.

Hi,
Steam leaking from the group when the steam function is turned on:
This is normal - as there is a spring valve which stops the steam escaping normally, however if you are not using the steam wand - steam has to escape somewhere and is vented through the group.

It will not affect the steaming - but you are better to make coffee 1st and then steam the milk.
The new Dreams have endless steam - which is great for larger groups over for dinner .. When the steam button is switched off the extra steam will vent into the water tank - new models with solenoid. https://www.bluestarcoffee.eu/ascaso-dream-pid-4272-p.asp

My Breville BES820XL isn't steaming the milk. Instead it drips a little and then the steam comes out the shower head. Any idea what is causing this and how to fix it?

Maybe the end of the steam wand is clogged. Use the tool that comes with the maker to clean it. Do this with the coffee maker turned off.

My machine blinking on steam, the wand does not want t o steam, the espresso does not pour. The knob is turned on stand by , but still some steaming noise comes, but no steam comes from the wand, nor...

When it is blinking on steam it means it is preparing the unit for steam. When the steam light goes solid your unit is ready to make steam.

  • Turn from standby to steam then wait for steam light to go solid.
  • When solid steam wand will begin dribbling then spitting out water, which will then turn to steam.
  • When it begins to steam, turn back to standby. NOTE: you only have 6 seconds before steaming turns off.
  • place steaming wand in jug and turn from standby back to steam.
You will hear pumping noises when you turn off your steam, because it releases the steam and puts the excess water in to the drip tray.
  • make sure your bean hopper is properly locked in to the unit. Grinder won't work if hopper not locked in.
  • Make sure your water filter has been prepped and locked securely in to the reservoir and your reservoir is filled.
  • Use fresh beans.
  • Sounds funny but use good quality water, do not use ordinary tap water. Make sure it is filtered or use bottled water (cooler bottles).
  • Try to grind your beans to a good consistancy.
  • Breville recomends about 10kg tamping pressure, use a set of scales to check the feel.
  • Tamp to about 3-5 mm below rim of grouphead (portafilter). Or the tamp has a guide on the side, that silver side on the tamp is the tamp line. Pretty vauge about that in the book.
If all else fails go to www.breville.com.au and check your model and watch some of the vid clips.
