Water Leaks from bottom of machine as coffee is dispensed?
Water is leaking as the coffee dispenses. Sometimes it takes two or more brews to get coffee to dispense. Hoses in the back of machine are not leaking and there is not any water in the area of the grinder?
Any help or suggestions to get it fixed here in Anaheim, CA would be appreciated....Thanks!
Re: Water Leaks from bottom of machine as coffee is...
I had this same problem. Open the front door, remove the dreg drawer and then remove the brewgroup. In the back you will see a pipe sticking down with an o-ring gasket on it. Below that is a channel and a little opening where rinse water is supposed to flow into the front drip tray. It gets clogged with grounds pretty easily. I filled a hose with some water and stuck it down there and blew through it until you can see water come out the front hole. It's a little hard to describe but I hope this fixes your problem, it did for me. I just have to do it once every couple months.

Depending on your ability to do some technical and minutious manual work, unmounting and remounting the machine is feasable.
Concerning the leaking, what I've seen most is a leak from the seal under the water tank. Any leaks coming form there would occur even though no coffee would be dispensed. (i.e: Idle mode)
If leak is ONLY occurring when brewing cofee, I would check the following:
1- Check if the water inlet on the back of the brew unit is filled with residue (the inlet looks like the end of a smoke pipe)
2-Open the machine, take out the interior, and verify the water tubes coming in and out of the boiler. They both should be sealed with 2 small o-rings. After time, o-ring tend to expand under heat and may start to leak.
That's leaking from the hoses coming out from the boiler,if the machine is new it should be still under warranty, may have to take it back to the service center.When making coffee the lines are under pressure and the water never have a chance to pass through the ground coffee.
I had the same problem. I ended up taking the coffee machine apart and found that the reason coffee trickles out around the hot water spout is that the two coffee nozzles were partially plugged. Since I Had parts of the coffee machine apart I was able to clean it easily. It may also be possible to clean the assembly using a pick of some sort and clean out the holes of the two normal coffee spouts. Inside it is just a open cavity so gentle poking around and using some steaming hot water may do the trick.
If you want to take the machine apart you need to do the following:
1) take of the warmer plate on the top - 2 storz screws but an allen key works as well
2) take off the top plate of the machine - another 4 or 5 screws - make sure you empty the beans first otherwise you will have a mess
3) remove one screw from the right hand side of the removable coffee ground tray. Once this screw is removed the front panel is free to swing open except for the pipes connecting the front
4) unclip the steam assembly - there are a couple of plastic catches on the top. this will free the steam assembly from the front panel and also free a pipe connections. The steam dispenser pipe will also come free from the steam assembly.
5) remove the coffee pipes from the up and down sliding coffee dispenser. This is a small whitish color clip with 2 pipes connecting into it. The white clip has a little plastic catch on the top that frees it. The front panel should now swing open freely.
6) remove the sliding coffee dispenser from the front door. There are 4 plastic catches, 2 on either side. the whole front sliding coffee displenser now comes free
7) Take the sliding dispenser apart by release the 4 plastic catches on the front curved planel.
8) Inside the sliding dispenser is a white plastic piece that connected to the piping released in step 5. There is a small plastic catch that needs to be pressed while pulling fairly hard on the plastic piece and bending the whole piece.
9) You will now see the plugged spouts.
It goes back together really easily.
Hei dory may be this can be helpful.Inside the machine take out the brewing group on the back panel there is asmall metal piston with 2 small orange rubber o ring.Try to replace that(is not easy since the position)were the o ring are locate is very unconfortable but is something i believe you can do it.That one is the main connector between the inside and the conjunction with your brewing group.
