Question about Briel ED271AP 10-Cup Multi-Pro Espresso / Coffee

1 Answer

Is Rancilio Silvia best for $400?

My wife and I have owned 3 pump machines over the past 15 years or so (El Expresso and 2 Krups). I am ready to move up to something about $400, and would appreciate some advice. We use it every day, and make about 4 large caps. The Rancilio Sivia looks good. Opinions? Best sources? Amazon.com has one called the Briel multi pro for the same money. Thank you. I have the Briel Multi Pro and it has never made satifactory espresso. It doesn't seem like the water gets hot enough and doesn't have enough pressure. My husband and I have just been making two cups of strong coffee and then frothing milk to make a latte.

Why won't my portafilter stay engaged once the water starts dripping? It flies off and sprays coffee grounds, and this started last week. Stays in place only if I wrestle with the filter handle.


It is possible that the grind you are using is too fine and causing so much back pressure that the portafilter is moving, also possible that the group gasket installed need to be replaced, I have also seen this happen with damaged screens.

My Rancilio Silvia won't pump water out of the head all of a sudden. It had worked for years up to this point


It may be that the 'shower screen' which is a perforated metal disk filter that fits inside the head has reached its use by date.
These can be found and bought on E-bay for about $15 each, make sure you buy a genuine Rancilio replacement, while you are at it, replace the rubber 'group seal' - a rubber ring for pressure sealing the head/arm after filling the arm with grounds - these are a similar price. If you get leaks around the head while making a coffee, the seal is worn out.

The pump switch is either burned out, shorted out, or there is a CPU problem. You will need somebody local to do basic electrical troubleshooting on this machine.

Rancillio Expresso Machine won't pump water through. Makes lound noise.


Hi There are a couple of things. 1. Your pump is not primed. Open the steam knob and push the middle switch. 2. Your intake hose is pinched or not connected to the pump, or your intake hose is not in the water tank.
