Joints on an SL90
#1 Phillip screwdriver
Scissors or Wire Cutters
Unplug Machine and remove the water tank.
Unscrew and Remove the recessed Phillips screw from the top back of the machine, right where the top of the water tank sits.
With the front machine resting against your chest, so the faceplate does not "pop" out, pull from the back -top of the machine (cup warmer), towards the front. To remove the top of the machine (cup warmer) you only need to slide it forward until the faceplate is vertical (perhaps ¾ of an inch), we caution against bringing it any further forward than this point. This will allow you to remove the top. You may let it dangle over the back of the machine where your water tank sits as it won’t hurt the machine. Take off the faceplate by carefully unplugging it from your power board on the left side of the machine.
There may be a white plastic zip tie that holds down your power board. You can remove this piece using scissors or wire cutters (please be very careful!). Next, slide your power board up and out of the two black metal sleeves. Do not worry about disconnecting any wires, as you only need to look at the back of the electrical board where all the small metal dots are. Notice the picture below as it highlights the solder joints that control the heating of your machine. If any of these look discolored (brownish-black) or is a dull gray (vs. shinny silver) then it is going to need to be resoldered.
If you have a Soldering Kit at home, resolder these three joints, making sure to melt some of the original solder. Once you are finished, put your machine back together and test it.

Try running a couple cycles through of full strength vinegar. If that doesn't do it run a weak bleach solution (6 to 1 / water to bleach) through it. Repeat vinegar every week then once a month if it clears.

It is clear that there is a problem with water supply. Check if pump works, if it does, there is blockage in water supply to pump. Check and clean.
