    Problem with Breville ESP8C (Cafe Roma)

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hello!
    Been lurking these forums for awhile and taking in some great advice for a beginner coffee brewer. So thanks!
    But I need to ask a more specific question now :-[
    For the past week or so, my Breville ESP8C has been spitting out steam from the coffee dispenser. (not the milk frother)
    I have no idea whats wrong, Ive used it cool, just as the warming light pops off, and hot i.e. letting it heat up for atleast 7-10 minutes.
    But the machine is still only letting out steam.

    Does that sound like a familiar problem to anyone else?
    Ive only had the machine for a few months
    Ive attempted to clean it once with some lemon juice heavily diluted in water.
    Thanks in advance

    Hmm sounds a tricky one - is it still under warranty at all?

    That machine has a 12mth replacement warranty - get your receipt and go get it replaced from you place of purchase.

    Thanks for the replies :)
    Yeah its still under warranty but since moving houses, I have no idea where the receipt is :(

    The thing is, if the machine has been left on for over an hour, it makes lovely rich coffee with crema so Ive only recently figured out that if I use really hot water rather than tap, it solves the problem.

    Hopefully that helps anyone else with a similar problem :)
