    Has anyone else had a problem with this machine? I have had 2 replacements due to the dial at the side sticking or braking making the machine no use at all because you can not dispense the coffee. I loved this machine in the time it did work but sadly i had to have my money refunded after the second machine would not work properly. Come on Breville update this model and i would buy a new one.

    The cappuccino machine is a great idea, and it's fantastic that you can use your normal brand of coffee. However it really is too good to be true :o(

    Our first machine 3 months ago packed up after 2 weeks, the mechanism just jammed, this is because you cannot clean where the coffee goes after it has dropped out of the hatch. The self clean system only cleans the tubes the milk+coffee go through together. This means that when the coffee sits in the mechanism it may start to conjeal if your not careful that it stays bone dry the whole time.

    Our second machine has lasted 8 weeks and now it won't even clean itself. It just keeps producing steam and not pulling the liquid through, so even though it's making the right noises not much else is happening. This one has not jammed up, however they do seem very unstable.

    I would suggest anyone thinking of buying this to look at the Kenwood Hot and Cold Frothy Drinks Maker, it's a simple design that can be cleaned properly, so there isn't any risk of the above.

    I agree with the previous reviews. It's easy to use, makes good cappuccinos and uses ordinary coffee, all a bonus. However, it's great for about a month or so but the machine seems to have a design fault. The coffee dispenser cannot be thoroughly cleaned and any residue coffee powder causes the dispenser dial to stick. Try pushing it and it breaks or use any water and it gets worse. We are now on our third machine and have given up and bought a different make. I wouldn't bother buying another until the coffee dispenser design is changed.

    Firstly I want to say that using the ingredients of a good instant coffee and fresh milk, you "can" make a surprisingly delicious coffee with this machine. I loved my instant cappuccinos and would use the machine about three times a day. Every time I used it I diligently followed the cleaning process and I really looked after my machine. However, the first one I had stopped working after three weeks. I thought this was because the water tank had started to leak so the machine just wasn't getting the pressure it needed to draw up the milk. This is one of its design flaws - there is no water level indicator so you either have to empty the tank out completely and refill it each time (which means unplugging the machine and tipping it upside down over a sink), or simply guess and top it up. I think I may have overfilled it a couple of times and so when the the machine failed, I exchanged it for a new one.

    For machine number 2, I made a dip-stick with a straw and made sure that the water tank was never overfilled. This worked for a couple of months. Like some of the other reviewers, I occasionally had problems with the coffee dial sticking, but usually a couple of sharp twists sorted that out. Also, I found that only adding the amount of coffee I needed for each cup, and then cleaning it immediately meant there was no excess coffee in the system, so it was much less likely to stick.

    The greatest problem I found with this machine is that it would simply unfathomably stop drawing the milk out of the tank. This was despite me not overfilling the water tank, or leaving coffee in the system. For a while, I found that if I left it cleaning itself for a couple of hours (seriously!)then it would eventually sort itself out.

    Well, we had our machine 6 months before it broke. Same thing as all the other reviews here, the black switch on the side. However, having said that I called the shop where we bought it and they immediately sent out another machine which arrived next day. Here's hoping this one lasts!

    It makes fabulous coffee though. Whilst it claims to also make a latte, the instructions are exactly the same as the cappuccino except the cappuccino gets a sprinkle of chocolate on top!

    Despite the problem with the breakdown, I can't find another coffee machine like it for the price. It's easy to use and it cleans itself whilst you are enjoying your coffee - so really what more can you ask for!

    Our second machine failed this morning.

    The coffee is good when it works hence when the first machine jammed on the dial (3 weeks old) we didn't give up and swapped it for a new one.

    2 months later for some reason the milk doesn't come through the tube anymore. After the first one went wrong we took extra care on cleaning it and followed every instruction in the book.

    Will buy another one but definately NOT Brville.

    AVOID THIS MACHINE LIKE THE PLAGUE.

    I too have had the problem with the large plastic dial which dispenses the coffee into the machine, it just broke off one day,well something inside broke off that was the end of the nice mugs of coffee it did make when it did work. I always thought that dial would go one day, but not after a couple of months, in fact it wasn't even that long, as this was my second one as the first one leaked all over the place.

    Be warned!
