I might be able to get my hands on a broken Breville dual boiler. According to the seller it powers on but doesn't brew. Does anybody know any suppliers that carry replacement parts? If I get it for a good price I wanna fix it up and keep it as an ultimate upgrade or sell.

From what I have read, there seem to be no warranty "repair" centers. Breville just replaces their appliances with refurbs. Now, the question is, who is actually doing the refurbishments? If it is out of warranty (which is sounds like is the case), then they might offer you an exchange for some set price. I would contact them directly to see. But I bet three coffee beans (less postage and handling) that they do not sell parts.
Past of this comes from the European "trend" based on liability and consumer laws making slf repair difficult or impossible with security screws and such. Owners manuals in many parts of the world now do not include any sort of internal adjustment that requires removal of the case or exposure to electrical internals. Combined with Breville's use of a lot of plastic parts and proprietary components and you see where this is all heading.
Maybe for the best. If doing repairs on these machines is going to be such a hassle, especially so much that you cannot work on by yourself, then maybe you're better off with a more traditional dual boiler or HX.
My Expobar may not be so sleek, but if I need to fix anything in it I can usually find the part at the hardware store for less than a few dollars.
