SOURCE: Steamer/Frother not steaming..just spurts water - cva2660

Not sure if this will help you or not. I have the CVA4075 built-in coffee maker. I had the same problem several times. You have to take apart the froth dispenser/intake hose and break it down into its individual pieces. Use manual for this. Then blow really hard thru each piece to loosen tiny stuck particles. Works every time. I tried descaling, cleaning, washing in dishwasher first, but to no avail.

SOURCE: My Pavoni Pro started leaking water from its base.

You most likely need a boiler gasket

Is water supposed to be added to the base and top chamber of the coffeemaker?

Only the base, then the water passes through the coffee as steam, re condenses and makes a great cup. Try and use specialty grade coffee,ground to mocha pot coarseness for the best results, not filter grind

I have a Briel MultiPro espresso maker. When I try to make coffee, water/coffee starts running over the edge of the basket and it "spurts" coffee and grounds after a few seconds.

The group head gasket needs to be cleaned or replaced. First get a brush and clean put the head, then insert back wash filter(basket with no holes) in portafilter, make sure that it is seated properly(atleast 90° angle with machine), then run the head if nothing leaks around the portafilter the gasket is fine, if it leaks then replace the gasket. Make sure that you press the stop button before removing the back wash filter.

I only get foam after 4 Shots

The only thing that comes to mind is descaling. To me it seems that most of the boiler room is being lost to minerals, so there is less water in there. Try descaling the machine.

Coffee spurting everywhere!

Unlike the other person offering a solution I have experienced this problem like you when making the first cup. I found that sending a blank shot of water through first does the trick before putting the coffee grounds on. Hope this helps.
