Right, because Breville is the only machine with thermistors.

Are the thermistors the only issue?

I find it funny how your attitude has dramatically changed from this post in which you said:

"So I'm going to take this piece of junk in for service, and if the repair cost is as high as I imagine it will be, it will be hitting the trash can and polluting a landfill shortly. It's a shame Breville didn't have the foresight to allow users to update their firmware without a service incident. Sad rookie mistake.

Buyer beware, dudes. "


So now it isnt a piece of junk?

Good to see Breville stepping up. Hopefully Breville USA got set straight by Phil for not respecting the warrenty.

The service manager who called me was very apologetic. The warranty limitations they have are probably normal in the high-volume appliance trade, but this machine is new venture for Breville that reaches into a higher performance level than the common blender.

Yes, my attitude has changed. If you've been reading this thread, the reason is not a mystery. Good customer service will do that, you see.
