Coffee machine repair centres

By 4 August 2014 6

Hello Rioters

I’m seeking some advice or recommendations on where I can take my beloved Breville BES860 Coffee machine to get repaired.

In the past I’ve had it serviced at Premier Instruments in Dickson as they are an authorised Breville repair centre. Unfortunately they have now closed down.

I’ve approached a few places around the capital, however no seems to want touch the machine with a barge pole. I’ve called Breville direct and they have suggested a repair centre in Sydney, which is my last option. I’d rather repair it then throw it away.

Anyhoo, over to you Rioters and thanks in advance for suggestions and recommendations.

Cheers

Pete

Hey Pete

Have you tried Cosmorex in Fyshwick? They do repairs on-site, but I’m not sure if they do Breville…

Its a sad fact but if its less than $1000 to buy new, they were probably designed to not be serviced that much. Last say 5 years at most and get replaced. I’d ask Cosmorex as well, they may be able to at least point you in the right direction in Canberra. Depending on what needs doing it may actually be cheaper to buy a new one which i know is not ideal.

Cosmorex are good but they have a $50 quotation fee (which comes off the cost of repairs if you go ahead). If this is too much or you just can’t find anyone to do it I recommend searching through some coffee forums to see if anyone has had the same problem and mentions how to fix it. Usually it is a busted pump which you can order online for $30-$100 (depending on the quality) and are pretty easy to replace by yourself.

Buy an Aeropress and a milk frother if needs be.

“I’d rather repair it then throw it away.”

Seems a bit extravagant.

So what’s wrong with it?
