Briel Sintrac cofee/express machine

My machine was working fine. There was no power today when I tried to make coffee. I unplugged the machine and when I tried to plug in the gfi kept going off. I then reset the gfi and plugged in another appliance and there was power, the gfi remained on. However, when I plug the Briel back the gfi shuts off. The last thing I did to my machine was add more water to make more coffee shortly after it had finished brewing. This machine is only 3 months old.ANy suggestions other than send it in for repair?

    same thing just happened to me. Model B40. Keeps tripping the GFI but nothing else does. Been plugged into the same GFI for a year.

  • piratemonk Dec 29, 2008

    Same EXACT issue! I made a cup, came back about an hour later, refilled the resivoir and the machine was off. noticed the GFI was tripped, and the machine trips it everytime I put it back in. Nothing else does. All I can figure is that it is on an amp service in the kitchen where it needs more than on the cicuit - but why after a year? Also, kitchaid large machine does not trip it?...help

    It doing it about every two weeks now. Any others having

    this problem.

    Have the same problem with the B40 model. It has worked well for a year and as of today will not power on when plugged into outlets with GFI. I'd like to know if this is something that can be repaired.

Where do I find the schematics/drawing of internal parts for Briel Cadiz Espresso maker


I just bought a new Briel Cadiz and it doesn't make crema. I tried my old Briel crema filter and it works fine making good cream. I was told to untighten the screw in the new crema filter but the screw just goes round and round, even with an electric drill. Can't tighten it or loosen it. Anyone got any suggestions?

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.

Water forced out around seal when making espresso.


1- Try cleaning the seal with a group brush if you do not have one you can get a hard toothbrush this will clean the coffee grounds on the seal, if the problem still occurs then the seal needs to be replaced.

No coffee is coming out of the machine...


in our machine we wanted a stronger coffee so we adjusted the auto grinder (where the coffee beans are housed) to the finest setting thinking the finer the grind the stronger the coffee...after doing this the machine wouldnot make coffee...we sent it away while still under warranty and the tech said that the grind selection was too low so they just turned the grinder back up a notch and it worked fine ....dont know if this will help but it's worth a try!

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 www.urnex.com 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:
Electra-Craft

Briel espresso machine


Try opening the frothing valve by turning the dial and force water through it instead of steam by pressing the middle, coffee button. You may be experiencing vapor lock. Once the water comes through the steamer valve, turn the steamer knob off and release the coffee button. Then try the steamer button with the steamer dial open. This may do the trick.
