I think you have been more than patient trying 4 of them.  I don't believe I would have.  Since you worked on your electrical system I believe it has to be the machines....

Yes i have a reason for leaving SCG off my list, yes it is my opinion, yes it is subjective as opinions are by definition, no don't start a flame war because you disagree.

As an aside, I stopped my usual "Breville?  Run awwwaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy!" remarks due to the number of people who have been quite pleased with their BDB's.  But, as others have3 commented, since you worked on your electrical system, I, too, have to believe the problems you've suffered through lie with the machines themselves.

Sorry.

good call on the whole of house protection often these are more suitably rated than the ones you get in power boards.

Another way you check if it is your power do you have any sensitive eletronics devices? TVs, CD/DVD/Bluray, PCs (not as much) or the like?  Have you had troubles with any other electrical/electronic devices?  oven clock?  high end washing machine?  

If you have not had any issues with anything else that rules out potential issues with your power supplies.  If you have been on a hifi forum and getting your dvd player swapped regular than it is definitely your power.

That's just plain odd, there has to be something weird with the house electrical that not even the electrician is picking up on and machine itself not coinciding together, as Breville said they only had like what was it, 3 or 4 something like that similar reports from around the world. But your the only one that's had it with machine after machine after machine, crazy. For what it's worth my buddy has one in his office and one at home, no problems or errors going on a year now, and the one in the office get's used non-stop all day long but that's here in the states, maybe an issue with foreign power grids? Though if there were, there would be a lot more complaints considering how many foreign owners even on the boards there are.

Def odd, has got to be something about the house electrical not playing right with something with the machines, when others have no issues even in Canada themselves, yet you've gone through 4 machines giving the same error.... really weird

I really can't figure it out. I also understand that aside from some duds here and there, these machines are working well. Just not for me in my house. I'm baffled.

the only other electrical thing that has gone awry is my volume dial on a HK reciever in the kitchen. It functions fine with the remote however. CD, DVD, TV, Computors ect... as well as all appliences have been fine.

could the receiver be another symptom of larger issue? The electrician thought things were fine....

and only a month this itme... oi!

Unless a specific problem can be diagnosed I will not be going to no. 5.

You have some weird electrical problems and even weirder, does Breville not know what err 2 is? Does breville not speak with the Chinese manufacturers to see what err2 means.
 Since its machine #4 i doubt very much that its the machines fault. There is something funny with your outlet.

Short story.
I lived in an appt when i was younger. I bought myself a new drip coffee machine. It was an under counter mount black and decker. Well, this machine lasted about 6 months and the element fried. Took it back to the store with reciept. I walked out with a new machine. 2 months later, same thing. This went on for at least 8 machines and since my 1 year warranty kept with every new machine i just kept returning them. I thought black and decker coffee makers were complete crap . well. I moved out of that apartment and voila. No more coffee maker problems. EVER..
 So whatever it was with that outlet in the apartment, it kept frying my elements. Who would have thunk it.

So. I think its your house outlet. Intermittent short? intermittent loss of ground? Intermittent loss of neutral? Something.
