  1. Sounds like a plan! Did it require any special tools? I've got a normal toolkit, as long as it doesn't have any proprietary screws.
  2. Thanks for the reply DavecUK! Sorry for the failed photo uploads... I'll try again from my laptop once I get it working. Will attempt to take some better photos in the meantime too. Hopefully it is as you said, and something like this 'water inlet seal' will do the trick? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Breville-BES810-BES840-BES860-BES870-Coffee-Machine-Water-Tank-Seal-BES860-08-9-/183533270972 I've never taken the machine apart, but sounds like it will be for the best. Is there anything to be especially careful of when doing this? Don't want to accidentally make it worse!) Che
  3. Hi all - happy to have stumbled across this forum! Especially since lockdown has given me time to get back into my coffee obsession. I have a Barista Express machine that sadly seems to have recently developed a slow leak It's ~6 years old, was used maybe 5 times a week for the first 2 years, likely a lot less in the last 3 years while my parents were looking after it. The machine works, still pulls a decent shot and steams milk, but over time is leaking from somewhere near the back. It doesn't seem to leak faster while extracting, but if I forget to empty the tank straight afterw
  4. I should also mention that I have been following the included instructions re: decalcifying with vinegar+water. It probably wasn't such a problem in Australia, but the water here in the UK is a lot harder. I have been descaling more often, but since joining this forum I see the advice has changed and Breville/Sage no longer suggest descaling with vinegar? Should I look at getting some Dezcal from amazon instead? Or are there other better decalcifying options? (Preferably cheaper than the ones Sage sell)
