The blinking red light probably is indicating heating element or control circuit failure.

I had a similar problem, but no blinking light, only cold coffee. I tapped on the relay (black box on circuit board) and violá.  Red light, hot coffee, and happiness.  The machine did the same thing a couple of weeks after the "fix", and a good slap to the left side, and I was back in business.  My guess is that your switch is bad or sticking.  Good luck.

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: breville 800esxl won't extract coffee or steam milk.

is your machine new or is this a new problem? If you have had the machine for a while there is a possibility that your double wall filter is clog between the walls which would prevent the water from going through (this happens when your grind is too fine). If however the water does not go through when you do not have a filter in the basket than you have a diferent problem.

I got through to the tech support at Breville and they helped me fix this problem. What they had me do was:

1)Fill the water tank all the way up

2)Turn the power on and wait until the heating light turns off.

3)without coffee in the head turn the machine to espresso mode and let it pump for a minute.

4)after a minute turn to standby for a couple seconds then turn it to steam mode for a minute.

5) after this minute is up turn it back to standby for a couple of seconds and then back to espresso mode.

6) the technician said to do this seven times, but mine started working after three or so. The tech said the fixes about 80 to 90 percent of machines with this problem.

Good Luck!

Doesn't heat the water Start...makes noise, the


the flashing heating light indicates that it isn't getting water. This could indicate that your pump has gone bad.

Die Cast 800ESXL Espresso Machine: Breville 800 EXL espresso machine pump not working...


I have the same problem. I used my machine for one day to test it when I had it brought into Vietnam then packed it while our house was being built.
Now it won't pump water or produce steam.

Breville 800esxl,won't stop pumping even in standby.


1- Are you using distilled water? If yes then the machine cannot sense the water level in the boiler.
2- Where is the water that is being pumped going? If it is coming out the drain tray, then the solenoid for the group needs to be replaced.
If it is coming off the top of the boiler, Then the level probe is calling for water, in which case you will have to remove probe and clean with a wire brush.

Temperature adjustment?


the rear temp sensor is in charge of the brew temp. To increase the temp, lift sensor and clean out the thermal paste. To further increase, insert some fine metal mesh between sensor and boiler. The front senser is for emergency (overheat) cut off. Don't tamper! Brought to you by Jim Vonkas

Makes espresso, coffee, water, but will not steam


The pump has gone bad - through use. This is a common problem, and has to do with the "seals" that are in the pump. Since the pump generates high pressure and heat, over time, the seals will fail, and will be unable to generate enough pressure and heat to create steam. The only remedy is to have the pump replaced through the Breville Out of Warranty repair centers.
