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.

Adjust the grind on the coffee or the tamping / packing pressure on the grounds.

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

I have a Briel ED 132A Classic how do I prime the pump for the st


Sometimes the self- priming pump feature may not work due to a momentary "air lock" condition. If water does not flow from brew head, place a cup under the steam frother. Open steam control and turn the switcher onto the icon of the half-full cup until water flows from steam frother. Turn off steam control, as Espresso maker is now ready.

Manual is located here:

Prime it


1. Open the steam knob all the way.
2. Turn on the pump (coffee Button)
3. Turn on the power to the machine.

The machine will start to pump hot water out from the steam wand. When you get a steady flow, your machine has been primed.

Espresso stopped working


Possibly you might need the Brew Head Screen and/or filter basket cleaned of built up coffee oils. Depending on how much you use it, is best to clean it every week or couple of weeks.
Remove brew head screen and filter basket, also if you have a screw in the filter basket and soak with in a cleaner for removing oils (not descaler) at: www.urnex.com or Dezcal etc.
Or, if you have not used it in awhile you might need to prime the pump manually:
Fill water tank.
Turn power on.
Open the steam knob all the way.
Press the coffee button.
Put a cup under the steam pump wand.
Wait until you see a steady flow of water and no air.
When you see the flow of water, close the steam knob.
Turn off the coffee button.
Now the machine should be ready to brew an espresso.

You have a leak in a connection or maybe the boiler. There is nothing you can do but find a repair shop to fix or replace the bad part.

Water won't flow through the tubes


You might need to prime the pump manually since the machine has been moved.
directions:
Fill water tank.
Turn power on.
Open the steam knob all the way.
Press the coffee button.
Put a cup under the steam pump wand.
Wait until you see a steady flow of water and no air.
When you see the flow of water, close the steam knob.
Turn off the coffee button.
Now the machine should be ready to brew an espresso.
If that does not work you can contact the service center for more suggestions:
