    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

Water heater expansion tank installation

The tank is placed on the cold water side of the lines. Just before the tank a T junction must be put on the cold line to allow for the tank hookup. You go fom the T to a female threaded coupler that the tank can be screwed into. Check the size of the ex-tank threads so you can get the proper coupler and parts to go from the T size to the coupler you need for the tank.

My 1983 Ford Tioga motorhome is leaking when I try and fill up the water tank. It has been sitting for 10 years and I can't tell if the leak is from the water tank or the old tubes. Where shoul

If water is getting under the carpet its probably the tank or a fitting on the tank.
I don't know of a way to find out unless you remove the tank to see under it.

My Rheem Electric water heater is leaking from around the side of the tank above the lower element.I can not find the spot exactly. What can I do to find the spot where the leak is coming from?

You can put hand on side of tank and feel for warm spot.
Tank is most likely rusted out and needs replacement.
If tank leak is welded, the rest of tank is still rusting and can rupture under pressure.

Is my water heater still under warranty leaking water on top of heater and out from bottom and from plate

1) If water heater is leaking, I suggest you protect yourself first.

2) You have to do some work to find out if tank is under warranty.
-Contact manufacturer:
-Contact installer: If plumber installed heater, then installer backs warranty for some manufacturers. If you installed heater, then warranty is less or void
-Look at paperwork and manual that came with water heater and read about warranty coverage
-Look at markings on tank to see if tank is 6 year, 15 year etc
-Warranty is based on date of manufacture: To find date of water heater, look at serial number located on label on side of tank:
Open link below for serial number decoder by manufacturer.

3) If tank is older than 6 years, and tank label shows this is a 6-year tank, then tank is no longer under warranty.
If you have a lifetime tank, then warranty is in effect, so contact manufacturer.

Open following link to see troubleshoot checklist for leaking water heater:

Other things to consider:
-If tank rusted out after a few years and installer did not install a jumper wire between hot and cold pipes, then tank warranty will probably not cover tank.
-If tank rusted out and you have water softener, and did not inspect anode rod or maintain water heater, then you did not read manual or maintain heater, and warranty might not cover problem.
-I suggest you read water heater manual cover to cover so water heater will not start leaking.

It looks that water is leaking from the - Culligan water softner

Look down the tube (where the float assembly is) there should only be about 10-12" of water in there. For water to reach the brine tank over flow the tank would have to be 3/4 of water. Brine tanks can develop leaks over time if they were set on uneven ground or if any rocks or debris are under it. If there is no evidence of water running down the side of the brine tank this is the most likely cause. Also if it has been leaking for some time there will salt buildup around the brine tank. Check the water softener for any leaks also. At times a small leak from the softener will find it's way over to the brine tank and collect around the bottom of it.

Water temperature cools when using the shower

the hot water heater may have sludge built up in it. drain a few gallons from hot water tank and see if this makes a difference. you should drain a few gallons fom tank at least 2 times a year, to keep the sludge from building up. ( is the tank big enough for the job)
