Breville offered to fix it even though they tried to say that it is made with food safe materials and it won't affect anything. Yeah...no thanks. They paid to send it in and they sent the damn machine back without replacing the part and simply did some routine maintenance. Breville ended up sending me a brand new unit which had a hot water dispenser leak. I am now waiting on another brand new unit. If you are under warranty call them and tell them you want it fixed.

Now mind, as with the solenoid, popular service parts go in and out of back order, so it pays to make the effort to keep checking back. A couple of weeks ago it was on back order. Now they have it.

I called Breville today and they opened up a warranty claim right away for me despite being 5 weeks out. I sent them all they needed to review, so now I wait.

Still $3.41. You can order it right now, but you'll have to wait till the get more in before they ship it to you. Note that backorder is not the same as discontinued. Ereplacementparts is always going in and out of stock on common service items for the BDB, like solenoids and such.
Jared wrote:Peter, are you sure you aren't looking at the item listed as a shower screen? The piece peeling/bubbling is the actual group head/shower head assembly. The plastic piece that comes off when removing the thin metal shower screen is not the item that is peeling/bubbling.
This is the item peeling/bubbling

The recent replies on this thread really make me stand by my original comments. I'll take a e61 hx over the bdb any day. The la scala is 8 years old now (bought second hand and still in contact with owner) and all that has been changed is seals. Also my brasilia club was ~20 years old with the apparently original solenoid still working fine.
