    Water leaks internally from my same machine. I cannot see where the leak originates. I have to take the machine apart to get to the hoses for inspection.
    Anyone have a technical repair guide on how to take the machine apart and put it back together successfully?

    Not only is ours leaking a LOT of water all of a sudden, but it is also shutting off the circuit breaker in the kitchen. Whatever hose is leaking must be near the electrical parts. Has anyone found a schematic of this coffee maker so we can take it apart and look for hoses?

    Thanks for the info. The water leaks from my machine towards the front, when it is pumping water while making the espresso shot itself.
    I do not recall if it leaks during the steaming operation.

    I looked inside from the vents in the back, and it looks like there is small plastic tubing that runs to the front of the machine, in the area of the leak.

    I am concerned that if I start to take the machine apart without a technical diagram, I will never get it back together.

    It still steams and makes espresso.

If the water is coming from under the cold water tank on the back of the machine it probably the o-ring seal in the grey machine recepticle which is visable when you remove the tank for filling. This seals the tank to the machine body and over time can leak (mine has!!). You can get them from Gaggia UK in Halifax

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.

Water leak somewhere under tank

Hi rdavis_sf,

If you're encountering leaks under the tank, most often it occurs when the water tank is not seated properly allowing water to drain out of the tank and into the base.You can easily fix this by following the steps below.

1. Please remove the water tank.

2. There is an access opening like a round hole in the base beneath were the tank fits into the machine.

3. Using an absorbent cloth material dry the water through this opening. Please be patient, it can take sometime.

4. Once the water is gone the machine will operate normally again.

There are alignment pins on the tank that fit into holes in the coffee machine. Make sure this alignment holes are clear of any debris. Coffee beans have been known to make their way into these openings. Please use a flashlight and a small mirror to see down into the alignment holes.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Water system fault is the readout on the window

Water leaking inside the coffee maker. Remove water tank. Use a turkey baster and place it inside a hole, where the water tank houses into. **** water out, which is causing your fault message - "Water System Fault." Only thing you can do is make sure water tank cover/lid is put on properly (correctly oriented) and replace seal ring where water tank spout inserts into. If problem returns, then there is a serious leak inside the unit.

Miele CVA 610 coffee system says "water system fault" can I fix myself?

Hi I,am not 100% familiar with this model but the machine thinks the is a leak. Remove water tank the should be a hole visible under tank place finger in hole and check for water. If so remove water with syringe etc. Leak most likely cause tank incorrectly fitted or faulty seal on tank. If water tank seal OK, Remove water with syringe etc appliance will work. As a precaution remove lid and run you should be able to see any leaks. If not look for white stains on components. If no leaks or stains found it's was most likely tank incorrectly fitted.

Water leaking from underneath water tank.

I rang Saeco service centre about my leaking water tank and they posted me a new tank - no questions or need to return the faulty item. I believe there may be a bad batch of tanks which leak because of faulty valves.

Water leaking into machine

This happens when the boiler develops a leak, usually due to scale buildup. Order a new boiler and o-rings and replace.

Water leaking into machine

it's possible, like mine with the same problem, that one or more of the plastic feet under the water tank has broken, then making the tank move and upsetting the valve underneath. My one always leaks clean water, never dirty and I have a broken foot.
