Question about Briel Domus Due Espresso Machine & Coffee Maker
My Briel is leaking from out of the bottom. I first suspected it was the water basket, but it doesn't leak when I remove it. My best guess is that the leak is in the plumbing or pump.
The tool required to remove the screws is some manner of torx with a post in the center. Any ideas where I can get said tool? What its called?
I hope someone figured this out, because i'm having the same problem. although it also seems water is not getting to the brew head. pressure comes up when i turn on the pump, about 13 bar in fact, but little or no water comes out of the head. now when i take the screw out of the center of the brew head water seems to flow freely with no pressure registering. i recently moved and the machine was in my car in sub zero temps for a week or so. i'm wondering if water froze in the feed hose and ruptured it?? i'm nervous to do any self repair because it voids the warranty, but if anyone out there is familiar with the problem I could definitely use some help. thanks.

I used to have a water leakage too. I solved it by first running a full tank of water mixed with 2 espresso cups of white vinegar after installing an empty coffee basket and ran the machine until the tank was empty. I also opened the hot water and frother valve a couple of times to clean that too.
Once the tank was empty, I removed it and pushed and released that little valve at the bottom of the water tank a good 20 times to make sure it sprang back properly. I then refilled the tank with ordinary water and ran half of it through the empty coffee basket and opened the frother and steamer once again to rinse everything from any vinegar residue. I refilled the water tank once again and snapped it hard in place.
Guess what! The machine doesn't leak anymore and I'm in love with it once again. This is a very sturdy espresso machine. There is no need to create bugs when they don't exist. Simple good care should do the trick. :)

Such tools can be purchased at Ace, Lowe's or homedepot. I had to purchase one to get into my tivo and the hardest part is getting the right size. you might try taking an impression of the screw with clay or by a rubbing with pencil and paper..
