First, you will need to check the power cord of your machine.

The power cord can possibly be damaged if you see your machine sometimes turns on and then turn off suddenly with a bit of movement.

At this time, you cannot be sure if it’s completely damaged but likely to be damaged.

This can happen due to keeping the cord tangled most of the time or due to being pressed strongly.

Sometimes, the damage is not visible, and it might look good from the outside.

But it doesn’t mean that it is fine on the inner side.

It might be broken from inside and that’s why careful inspection is necessary.

If you find the power cord damaged or broken, then you definitely need to repair it first.

If not repaired, then you need to buy a new power cord and replace the older one with the new one.

Your machine could be operational.

So, it’s time to get started with your tools.

Unplug the Breville Oracle Touch machine, and remove its top lid.

You can find it usually where the screws are or at the bottom of the appliances.

Open the screws, identify the switch behind the knob and test the conductivity with your multimeter.

If there is no power, then you should replace it for sure.

Locate your fuse and test it with your multimeter to make sure that the part is not working properly.

After that confirmation, remove the fuse and install the new one to solve the on/off problem of your machine.

Most of the new Breville machines such as Oracle Touch are smart enough.

And it will show you if the machine’s thermostat is at fault or damaged.

It will automatically prevent you from using the machine in that condition.

Therefore, if you find the thermostat is broken, then just get it replaced with the new working thermostat.

A drastic power surge or a Breville Oracle Touch overheating issue can damage the circuit board of a machine.

It can be the main reason behind your machine’s not turning on problem.

This is the time to make an important decision to repair or replace the internal circuitry of the machine which gets damaged.
