I use cocktail sticks or similar to remove old seal and then a little sunflower oil to lube the new seal

it sounds like you need a new group head gasket, or the group head gasket is not installed properly.
If it is a new machine, you probably just need to reseat the group head gasket. If it is a used machine, the gasket is probably worn, they need replacement every 6-12 months.
The Starbucks Sirena is made by Saeco, and is also called the Saeco Sirena.
You can find the group head gasket (brew head gasket), and any other parts from the following:
seattlecoffeegear.com

Here are a few videos of the machine in use:

You need a new brew head gasket. They are not that hard to change. Four nuts hold the chrome head on. Once the chrome head is removed the gasket is pulled off then the brew head is cleaned and then you can put the new gasket on. Check ebay.

When brewing with the X1, water starts leaking from the underside of the top where the brass filter holder connects to the machine. Tightening the 4 nuts did not help.


HI
More than likley its your brew head gasket that is leaking. Take off the 4 nuts you hust tighten and it exposes the brew head gasket. Make sure that you put the chrome piece on the same way you took it off. Clean the head good before you put the new gasket on or you could have trouble.
I would check ebay.

My saeco magic deluxe, doesn't make coffee all the time, it seams the brew group arm is not riseing and the coffee gets dumped in the tray


Sounds like early stage of stripped gears in Gear assembly or faulty Main electronic board. These are the 2 most common problems.

Brew group stuck in machine. machine will not turn on


You have the dreaded dead electronic board problem.
99.9% of the time your boiler has leaked water on main electronic board and now both need to be changed , not worth the repair my friend.

The handle is leaking water


Hi
Your brew head gasket needs replacing. They get hard after about 6 months to a year depending on how long the machine is on. if it on 24/7 it need to be changed every 6 months. If turned off daily every year. The gasket is up where you install the portafilter to make espresso. The black ring is rubber and that is what need to be changed. Have one setting right here on my desk.

Saeco Magic Espresso Maker is leaking


I know I'm probably too late for this solution, but it could be your brew head gasket is cracked if it got too old, the outlet valve is defective/worn/broken or it could be a worn out steamer needle valve. This will appear as soon as the heating element is turned and water expands. 

You can get most common maintenance parts in kits on line for about $50 or so for a complete set or individual parts for less than $20; As for the valve stem if it isn't too worn out, you can resurface it carefully with a file and sandpaper.

Portafilter loose in group head


Hi,

Do you only have the top off or do you take out the boiler too?

if you took out the boiler then i think the holder is in wrong position, make sure the gasket in the holder are in place, if not then the portafilter do not lock tight.

Hope this will help you.

Best regards
