I just tried it with the single pressurized filter (no coffee) and it hit 7 bars, stayed there for a few seconds then dropped down to 6 and then 5 bars. I guess I need to call Breville.

Does it do the same when you back flush with the silicone disc?  If it does the pump is probably dying.

Was just going to recommend this.  This was one of the first things I tested when I first got my machine.  I used a back flush basket and it hit/stayed at 9bar.  This is a gentle reminder that i should probably try it again tonight ;)

Are you saying put the rubber gasket in like you would when doing the cleaning, minus the cleaning tablet and run the clean me option?

Yup do a backflush with just water, no tablet.  No need to use the cleaning cycle though.  Just hold down the single or double shot button for 15 sec or so.  You should probably be doing this after every session.

Oh yeah, I always do back flush after each shot. I did just do the cleaning cycle without the tablet and it seemed to hold the pressure just fine. But it's not holding the pressure the whole time when doing a shot. Not sure why.

Then it's probably channeling like previously mentioned.  Are your beans fresh (< 2 weeks from roasting date)?  Also, what is the dose are you using?

Just to be clear on this, the BES900 PF, regular spouts or naked will NOT fit properly in a BES920. If by some chance you have a BES900 naked that works in a BES920, it's just a matter of time before it starts to leaks. The nakeds for the BES920 will be available in July.

Cheers, Phil
