    Our steamer at the Saeco Odea isn't tight any more. Tried descaling, but that didn't help. Meanwhile I got so bad, the machine doesn't get any water for the espresso any more because it all flows out of the steamer.

Water spewing from steam vent whenever I cook rice and I have measured accurately. It is a mess!

I found a solution to the spewing around the lid and through the vent.

The other day I placed the steamer tray in the top and then the lid.

The steamer "broke up" the bubbles -- no spewing out of the pot or mess -- I mostly happened with brown rice -- but the last 2 times -- not mess!!!!! Hope this helps someone else.

Not brewing shots, just spewing water out the top!!!

Yup, it sounds like you have a leak !  When the spoon is locked in place, the coffee is preventing (blocking) the water from flowing freely, and it simply finds an easier path, through a hole or loose fitting above the spoon... Depending upon your skill level, you may want to have a look inside the machine and you should be able to see where the leak is.  If it's a hole in a pipe/tube, the pipe/tube will probably need to be replaced (maybe it can be repaired...), and if it's a loose fitting, you can try to tighten it.  It might have come loose due to the vibrations from the pump. Another possibility is that you have a lot of scale built up in the system.  If you've never descaled your machine, you should do so regularly using coffee machine descaler or "CLR" available at hardware stores.  If you've ownded your machine for a while and never descaled it before, run the descaler 4 or 5 times to give it a good cleaning and then do so according to the instructions (I do mine every couple of months but I don't use my machine every day).  If you use unfiltered tap water, the scale will build up more quickly, specially if your local water is "hard".  Consider using filtered water to reduce the buildup of scale.

Water spews out drain when washer is draining

Call one of those sewer boys, partially clogged I would say.
Anymore drainage problems in the house.
To avoid costs could try to clean the water lock.
Ask price on before hand, avoid night weekend calls.

Water leakes over the top of my rapporto filter

I forgot to mention in my earlier post, to also check the brew head gasket, use your tool to clean the grounds out of the gasket, it can cause the filter to not seat properly.
Remove the filter, and insert the gasket cleaner tool.
Twist the tool (the cup looking thing with the phillips head attachment on it) with the notches up into the gasket, twist back and forth until you get as much grounds out as possible. Then clean the gasket with a warm wet cloth until no residue shows on your cloth. Do this cleaning every couple weeks if you use the machine a lot.
Also be sure to run a brew cycle thru an empty filter after the last use for the day. This really keeps evrything clean in your filter and shower screen.
