When I plug the unit in it says system overheated and I can't get to reset. It also won't take on water

The problem there it is the deposits of water residues, calcium in your heating element! To prevent that and prolong the espresso machine's life I would use filtrated or distiled water. To fix the problem you have to get to your heating element take it out and try to clean it! To clean it u can use white vinegar, and than wash it with clean water!
Good day to you!!!

You need to provide more info: machine age; frequency of use; last cleaning; hardness of your water; and anything from your manual that you do not understand or find confusing.

water smell

You may have some residue inside the steam pipe from previous uses (e.g. milk). If you know how to remove the steam pipe, this will be easy to clean. Otherwise, you could try a pipe cleaner (depending on the type of steam wand).

You can also try running the steam pipe into some water, but be careful not to overheat the boiler (consult your manual... it may say you can't steam continuously for more than a minute, or even less).

A puddle of water forms under the machine and

If its dirty water your drain in back is plugged. There is a pocket below the injector nozzle that the pressure is relieved in when the brewing is done. This pocket can get clogged with residue after a while and then overflows under the drip tray. The drain is in back just above the back of the drip tray. If you pour water in the pocket it should come out the drain. If it doesn't, clean out the pocket, and that should take care of it. If it does,t, I need more information.

it leaks at the drain outlet behind the brew group...overflows into the tray and leaks horribly from underneath unit

The drain in the back of the machine is plugged with coffee residue. There is a pocket below the injection tube ( the one with the 2 o-rings on it) that is filled with coffee residue that needs to be cleaned out. When its clean and you put water in the pocket it should come out the drain hole into the drip tray. The pocket is where the brew unit relieves the pressure when it is done brewing. That is why you get coffee residue in the pocket.
