Have an ace lp that drips even when turned off and fills pot to overflowing any suggestions on correcting problem


Hi. you have a solenoid that has got a piece of lime scale stopping it from completely closing, You can try doing a Descale cycle which should flush it out. If its a plumbed in model, its hard to stop the leak with the mains water pressure, otherwise drain the steam out, when you turn off the machine. The steam pressure if left in the machine, can keep it dripping. Darryn REPAIRER

Our coffee maker overflows,coffee grinds get in coffee and overflows.


Coffee overflowing onto the counter is a common complaint found in response to many automatic drip coffee makers. The following are potential solutions that can be used to rule out "operator error" vs. a defect or malfunction:

1. Do not "pack" or otherwise overfill the cone/basket with grinds.
2. If self-grinding your coffee beans, ensure you are using the correct grind setting for an automatic drip coffee maker. (See instruction manual for coffee maker and/or grinder.)
3. Do not overfill tank with water. Use the marks on the side of the reservoir rather than those defined by another measuring method. This is because a "cup" in a coffee carafe is defined as 6 oz, not 8 oz, and in some cases as little as 5 oz as a cup. (See your owner's manual.)
4. Make certain the filter cone/basket clicks into place and that the carafe is centered and pushed all the way in.
5. Try a permanent filter rather than a paper filter or vice versa.
6. Only use the correct permanent or paper filter (see manual).
7. Verify that the Pause 'n Serve button isn't sticking. If it is activated too long the brew will escape over the top of the cone/basket. This may be more apt to happen if the alignment of the carafe and the basket is incorrect.
8. Clean your machine with vinegar or as instructed by your owner's manual at least three times per year, more if your water supply is hard (prone to leaving water rings). A properly cleaned machine is less likely to suffer a burned out heating element, to take too long to brew a pot of coffee, to produce "off" tasting coffee, or to clog and overrun the filter basket.
9. Ensure that the coffee machine is sitting level on the counter.

Constant leaking into my drip pan reservoir from the overflow valve


Here is how to repair, on the gauge there are 2 needles, the bottom one is what we will be checking. Turn the expansion valve clockwise slowly until it gauge reads 12 bars, if it goes past turn other way slowly. Your goal is to set it at 12 bars, when tat is done there will be a leak about a drip a second from the valve.

Overflow problem


Unplug machine and remove the water probe it is probably not reading the water level.
If it is leaking without the machine being plug in to power then the inlet solenoid is damaged.

Water overflow


If the water is running out the seams in the plastic BEFORE you brew anything, it is a defect or design flaw. I bought one that looks like the one pictured and it did the same thing. So did the replacement.
If the overflow occurs during brewing, verify the following:

Saeco Vienna leaking


We had this problem and it was overflow from a clog -- check the hole where excess water drains into the drip tray to see if it is full of grounds. Cleaned it out with a twistie tie and flushed w/ water. That stopped the water on our counter!
