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?

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?
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.
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!
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 41 Woodbine St Bergenfield NJ 07621 phone 201-439-1700 fax 201-439-1701 email@example.com www.electra-craft.com
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.
