Question about Briel Domus Due Espresso Machine & Coffee Maker
Possibly, if it is leaking from the bottom only, and if you have a Domus Due model, you might just need a new water reservoir as the water reservoirs are a different system than all of the other briel machines and a new reservoir will usually fix the problem of leaking on the bottom in the Domus Due machines. Something with the seal on the reservoir.
You can order just a water reservoir by contacting the service center at:
41 Woodbine St
Bergenfield NJ 07621
If your machine is leaking over the filter handle, brew head etc, that could be the coffee oils have built up in the Brew Head Screen and/or filter basket itself. For that, remove the Brew Head Screen and soak along with the Filter Basket in a coffee oil remover (not descaler) you can get the Cafiza powder at www.urnex.com or any other brand and then use a brush to clean it after soaking. If you have the Briel filter basket with a screw in the middle, please remove the screw and clean in there as it tends to get clogged. Then just be sure not to screw it too tight again as this can cause leaking.
I hope the info was helpful.

Tips for a great answer:
Have you ever wondered, 'how do I descale my
expresso machine?' First lets us understand what is exactly is scaling.
The build up of minerals inside the hot parts of your coffee machine or
espresso machine is commonly called lime scale. When lime scale
builds up inside the Espresso machine, it slows down the water flow,
reduces the boiler capacity and can prevent your coffee machine from
working properly. To keep your Espresso machine operational at full
order, it is important to descale it every three months. The time
intervals between descaling depend upon many factors. Quality of your
water and the amount of water running through the machine are the two
main factors that decide the frequency at which you should descale your
Espresso machine. The more you your machine, more often should you
descale it. In some cities, in conjunction with a water filter you can
use your coffee machine for a year or more without descaling at all. If
you use less water by drinking espressos you'll need to descale less
often than if you make cappuccinos.
Descaling products are widely available from stores
that sell coffeemakers and espresso machines. Be sure that the product
you buy to descale your Espresso machine is intended for this specific
use only. Before you descale your Espresso machine, always unplug it and
make sure that it is cold. Also, never immerse the appliance in water
and nor should you use abrasive cleaning products
or scouring materials on any part of your Expresso machine. In case
your Espresso machine does not come with a instruction guide or booklet,
then use a proper citric acid based descaling solution designed for
espresso machines. This should be mixed and prepared as per the
instructions on the bottle or packet. Once your Espresso machine has
been descaled properly you would not be left wondering, 'how do I
descale my expresso machine?', treat yourself to a great cup of coffee.
