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.

Agree about cleaning / replacing gasket -- BUT....not every espresso machine should be backflushed!!!

Before you attempt to backflush your machine be sure that it has a three-way valve. Otherwise you may damage the machine.

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.

We have a brilliant Briel Multipro that we use every day but when we have made a cup of coffee and release the coffee holder, steam and hot water spurts from the head area...It stops after a few seconds...

First, I'm NOT a Briel technician, But if you still have pressure from the removal of the portafilter (or capsule) then the exit or pour spout is clogged. You can soak a standard portafilter in warm water over nite and wash it clean in the morning. Really bad? then soak in urn cleaner and flush thoroughly prior to use. For capsule machines follow the MFR's instructions to properly flush the machine. You may also try to "fool" the machine into making a 'no coffee' shot by reusing old capsules over and over again to try and flush out old coffee from the spout. Otherwise the unit may need servicing to remove the clog as most of these capsule machines do not have serviceable parts. Contact your vendor or MFR directly for service or replacement.
*warning! Try not to stick a pin, nail, or paper clip into spout(s) as this may damage valve or offset the dual pour spout. Most of these machines have double spouts and can be easily pushed out of alignment.
* Final; I've noted that your probably using a portafilter type machine. If you have water or steam dripping from head then there is a leak in your head valve or commonly called the 'Group Valve'. Fortunately this is a serviceable part and can be replaced by your vendor.
PS. Have you tried 'Back Flushing? Use a "BLANK" portafilter basket (the one with no holes) or a back flush rubber stopper (from Cimbali). Add a 1/4 teaspoon of urn cleaner of flush cleaner to portafilter and lock onto group. Run shot till it stops (excess pressure and dose will by-pass the group valve. This will flush old coffee and crud out the by-pass pipe and into drain tray. If nothing happens and the group hums for longer than 20 seconds then your probably got a clogged valve and back flush pipe. All will need disassembly, cleaning and/or replacement. Best to call your Vendor for service.
*Be sure to run the group several times and wash the portafiler to get rid of the urn cleaner.
*Tip; It's a good idea to back flush every hour with with plain water from the shot to just get rid of the coffee grounds stuck to the group shower head and leftover coffee in the group valve. Does not hurt the machine and keeps everything working smoothly.

Briel ES 200 AP machine no water for coffee but yes for steam

This post is REALLY old, so you probably already fixed or discarded your machine. But for others with similar problem....

You may have a blocked top filter screen. If the machine is not cleaned regularly this screen can become so dirty and clogged that the water cannot get through.

Easy way to tell is run a shot without the portafilter basket in place. Water should flow out of the top screen. If you see it spurting out in small streams it needs to be cleaned.

On the ES200AP MPS machines you simply need to remove the screw in the middle of the screen, clean well, then replace.

Briel Apollo no water when making espresso

Check that the water tank is seated properly. When you lower it in place just give it a little nudge down to make sure its slotted into the catch.

Espresso maker not workin properly

Your Brew Head screen and/or filter basket might be clogged with coffee oils. You can soak both pieces in a product that removes coffee oils from either or Dezcal brand. Coffee shops will do this once a day. If you have the filter basket with the screw in the middle, you will need to remove the screw and soak everything as it can clog also.
If that does not work (it should tho) you can contact the Briel service center at:
