Saeco Vienna Coffee Machine water leak

It seems that the seal is broken between the water tank and where the water goes into the machine - it is leaking all over the work surface.
The machine is quite old but otherwise works OK.
Is there a way to fix this?

I have had the same problem with my Saeco Digital & Saeco Superautomica machines. After much work and somewhat expense I have finally found a simple fix. All you need to do is replace the gasket which is located just under the water reservoir.
(1) Take the water reservoir off
(2) Pop the round plastic piece located in the middle off (don't worry you won't break it as is it pretty tough)
(3) Take the black rubber gasket out and either:
(a) cover the present gasket with the brew group lube or
(b) replace the gasket with a new one.
which will give it a air tight fit and prevent any further water leakage from the reservoir.

You can get a new gasket for $5!!! :) I got mine at: http://cerinicoffee.com/item.asp?cID=0&PID=90

I also put some Brew Group lube ( http://cerinicoffee.com/Lube_brew_group_saeco.asp ) around the gasket as a temp fix until I completely replaced to gasket. Apparently, what happens is that the original gasket gets old, dry rots or whatever allowing the water to leak out of the reservoir. And then all over your work surface. The Saeco machines are quite intricate but are
Hope this helps.

Saeco Vienna superautomatica leaks when making coffee


This is an easy fix for a 14$. The seal at the water tank connection is worn. Take the water tank off. There is a round flat topped plastic retainer. Pry off the retainer (comes off easily). You will see a black round o-ring made to fit on a channel. Remove the o-ring and replace.Two minutes and you are without water leaks. I do not remove the tank to fill anymore, I use a pitcher instead. Part number 3 in this diagram.

Saeco Vienna coffee when the machine starts the coffee dispensing


Is it leaking only when brewing coffee ?

If not I would check the seal under the water tank (Part #NM05.006)

If so, I would check the following:

1- The water input port on the back of the brew unit (looks like a smoke pipe) might be clogged

2- The o-ring of the water tubes coming in and out of the boiler.

When I make coffee, there is water leaking probably from the drain, even after I changed the seals with new ones.


there are several places where this machine can leak. Check all the connecting hoses from the boiler , they are just clicked in by holder pins.
Even the seal in the boiler itself can be worn.
Follow this link for diagram and parts ( unfortunately in spanish sorry for that)

Oh by the way the seal on the spout which goes into your brew group can be damaged too. Check that first
