Question about Briel Multi-Pro ES-200A Espresso Machine

2 Answers

ES 200 AP

I have had this for 5 years and it has always leaked out of the steam a little water dripping, now it is alot more water to almost soap a dish cloth. I am also getting less cappucino out, despite being put on the full cup. I have lost and manual and am curious if there is cleaning that I need to do or maybe have some broken internal parts.

Your help would be appreciated.

There is a chance all you need is to replace the o-rings if you haven't yet. You can also contact the service center and find out if there is something else you can do at:

You can pop open the top of the machine by loosening the screws on the sides. Only loosen the upper screws just enough to split the unit open and slide the top back. You can then run a shot and see if there is any leakage from the tubes or valves on the inside. Also, you can contact Frank from the info posted on the previous answer. Great to work with on troubleshooting your problems.

I just bought this iron in March 2015. The iron leaks water all of my clothes when I press the steam button. I have it set on the highest setting for iron and steam.

Increasing the temperature setting can ease this issue, however it is important to consider the type of fabric you are ironing.

1st option: Fill the iron up, and let the iron stand as the iron heats for little while before using. This may allow more of the water to be converted to steam.

2nd option: You could try using deionised/distilled water in your iron.

If you find that the water leaks out sporadically, it may be worth pushing the steam button once or twice before applying it to clothing.

I have attached a link with a little bit more information How to Stop Steam Iron From Dripping

Preventive maintenance for steam cleaners.

Always flush out your machines with clean water after each use. Including the soap container! Never leave chemicals (soap, cleaner,or shampoo) in your unit when your finished, regardless if the manufacture says its ok. If your unit has a heater its good to add a little white vinegar to your rinse.
If you have hard water this is double important (white vinegar).

I have a Rancilio Silvia around 5 years old. After around a year, it stopped reliably producing dry steam. I have very hard water, but despite regular vinegar cleaning, cannot seem to get it to steam

I work on industrial machines have done so for 15yrs
if your machine is anything like the prof rigs in terms of engineered design then what you are noticing is the pressure release valve working-letting any unused and pressure + water drain from the group head to a small plastic black box below the stainless housing panels/drip tray after extraction is complete.

What i describe should only happen after the shot stopped.

you should hear it and see it the water for about 2seconds after you stop the extraction manually/automatically

Our Saeco Magix Deluxe (old style) has developed a leak. It happens inside the machine, on the left, and is pretty severe, during coffee making. Sometimes there is just a little coffee ground in the...

When the machine is done brewing some water is relieved into the drip tray. This is the pressure relief. Some coffee residue is also taken into the drip tray. This is normal. As long as nothing is under the machine your OK.

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.

It is dripping a little water out of the left head and dripping a little out of the left steam release in the back.

Replace the solenoid on the head and the swivel o-ring on the steam wand, if leak is in the nut, if it is in the handle then the 2 small o-rings on the plunger needs to be replaced.

We find water under the coffeemaker in the morning.

Sounds like a leaking water pipe from the water source, unless you have a over temp heater and this results in steam and dripping.
