Question about Briel Sintra ED-132 Espresso & Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Everything works on my Briel Sintra, but the espresso part!

I have descaled the machine. I have primed the machine by using the steam nozzle. I have run the machine without espresso and it will flow. All functions normally, it just doesn't flow with espresso loaded. Does something need adjusting and/or cleaned? Has the pump gone bad? In desperate need for coffee in the morning. Thank you in advance.

My Saeco Incanto Sirius machine keeps asking for yet another VENTILATE cycle


This means the water cannot flow through the machine. Normal fix is to prime the machine (turn water dispenser on, fill a cup) or descale the machine. Go through the menu, select descale, enter, then turn the steam knob fully anti-clockwise. You should put the descaling solution in the water tank first.
If you have the auto-descale in the menu then run it. Run the solution through the machine twice. Then rinse well.

My Gaggia Titanium has an ventilate problem when it is stil cold. After starting up, autotest and running pump, it appears whit message ventilate. It takes a long time steaming or hot water after the


The ventilate sign appears as an error message to tell operator that the flow of water is reduced. I can tell that the machine has not been descaled or was descaled using unscrupulous products that are labeled as descaler but they are not.
Because the sign disappears at this time after flushing water through the steam pipe, the flow restores the sensing that water is flowing normal. This "apparent restoration" of water flow is without any back pressure. The espresso function is restored for limited use.
This error code if not corrected immediately, it will not disappear and not allow any function even after flushing water manually.
The flow meter registers the quantitative flow of water as programmed for espresso.
Please descale the machine as soon as possible. before the 'Ventilate' error message stops all functions.
This is a well designed machine. Needs more attention to maintenance.

I have an Ascaso Steel Duo Professional semi-automatic espresso machine - the steam wand is restricted. how do I remove it to clean?


Hi There, If your ascaso steel duo is not producing steam,
Could be that:
The thermoblock may be blocked - Try descaling.
JURA descaling tablets
Steam wand may be blocked - try removing steam nozzle/steam wand and submerge in hot soapy water.

Gets no steam


If you can make coffee and the coffee is hot that means the machine works fine and the only problem you have the tube nozzle clogged. So first switch of the machine a turn the knob to off position. Remove the steam nozzle cover and with the use of a needle or steel thin wire insert it to steam pipe all the way in so to make at least a small opening. Try again to work the machine and if you have atleast some steam continue use the steam so any dirt will spit out. The dirt might be dry milk or evn some big parts of scale which have been unstuck from machine during descaling and they have not desolve so to come out from the pipe. So the next time you will make descaling try to leave the machine with descale solution more time inside the machine before rensing.
Good luck
