SOURCE: Leaking Around Spigot, Coffee Urn

I have a Farberware L1360 with the same problem . If there is water in the pot , in about an hour a nice little puddle forms . It is leaking right where the spigot attaches to the body of the pot. I can see a rubber washer squeezing out around this spot. Maybe It melted?
I think it needs some heat resistant washer to replace it. Farberware co. doesnt really exist anymore. you can barely get parts. If the spigot itself works, mine does. I can't see buying a new one if it just needs a washer. Does anyone know what type of washer would be a good replacement?

SOURCE: how to fasten heating element to pot

Had a little problem loosening the nut from the heating element, but once I got it off, cleaned all parts , went to an auto supply store and was lucky to find the right size gasket ( it was a part for a Nissan auto ) , used Permatex silicone gasket sealer, put all parts together, tightened the nut real tight, made all electrical connections, tested the pot with water, heated up real fine , no leaks , Problem solved.

SOURCE: Cracked plastic

Yes- this is a very common problem with the Bunn home coffee brewers. However, there are no replacement parts available. Your only hope to get a replacement pour-in tray is to get ahold of yopur local Bunn repair center and see if they have a machine that broke down for some other reason and rob the tray from that. You can get a list of Repair centers in your area from www.bunn.com

SOURCE: Saeco Vienna leaks water from water tank

Sorry for the delay in response but I just read your complaint. I had similar water leakage issues and mistakenly replaced a bunch of stuff without stopping the leaks, until I discovered the real problem; the O ring seal that the water reservoir sits in located under the reservoir where it mates with the machine. Easy to replace and cheap. No leakage problems since I both replaced the O ring and started the routine of not taking off the water reservoir to fill it, but leaving it in place and filling it from a bottle. That technique does not any wear at all on the seal ring and so it won't leak in the future.
The item is called a "Saeco-water inlet valve gasket" , has a part number of NM05.006 and costs $7.50. I purchased it from Services Unlimited located at 650 N. Cannon Ave. WH-305, Lansdale PA 19446; phone 215-361-7000 Fax 215-361-7434, e mail granita@rcn.com but you can find it at any authorized dealer, I am sure. I ordered two and with shipping the cost came to $21.50.
You can request a fax with a parts diagram and listing, which I found most helpful in diagnosing issues and see where stuff goes..
Hope this helps you..

I bought a Kambrook Muscle Analysing Scale model EF912 but do not have the manual


After some looking around for this product - it seems to be the same as a TM-EF912 which is made by a Polich company Tech-Med.
They do have a site and it does have a manual - only it is in Polish.
So just in case you can read Polish or know someone who can - here is the manual link. Sorry I could not find anything else - seems that this unit is made and then badged as to whatever name someone wants to put onto it (such as Kambrook)

Drain valve plastic slow leak 81V-80D


If the drip is coming out of drain valve: Put a hose cap over end of drain valve.
If water is seeping out of cracked drain vale, then replace it.
If the leak is seeping around previously sealed threads, then tank may be rusted beyond repair.

Hi, my insinkerator hot water dispenser is leaking from the bottom screw. It is a couple of years old. Moder SST


My unit is 3 1.2 tears old. It started to delay the flowing of hot water. Today I held the lever down until hot water came out but I noticed water leaking from inside the unit. I figured that the tank failed, and since it was over 3 years old I decided to open it up. What I found was that there is a plastic tube at the top of the unit that was very discolored and brittle which developed a crack. when I touched it it completely severed. I called the Insinkerator hotline at 1800-558-5700 and they told me that opening the unit voids the warranty. I said that it appears to be out of warranty and I needed just the plastic tube for repair. The per on on the phone said that as a one time courtesy that a new unit would be shipped to me free of charge and that I could install it myself or they will have a tech do it. I opted to do it myself. Hope this helps

Water leaking during drain and spin


Hi!

You Need to check the following--

The fill hoses : These are located behind the washer and are connected to the water mixing valve and faucets. Pin holes and cracks on the hoses may cause them to leak.



The water valve: The water mixing valve is located behind the washer. The fill hoses connect to the water mixing valve. Inside of the valve is that the water gets directed to the filling spout. Water leaks happens when the valve develop pin holes or cracks. Bad fill hoses or water valve could be the reason why the washer is leaking water.


The Filling spout: Is just a directing part, this part directs the water from the water valve to the tank. Pin holes and cracks is what make this part to leak.


The tank : The major cause for the tank to leak is through holes or cracks that the tank develops because of vibration or metal items hitting the tank during the spin cycle.


The tub seal : The tub seal is made of rubber, it is connected between the transmission post and the center of the tank. Leaks developed when the seal gets worn out and it looses the ability to make a good seal between the transmission and the tank. A crack tank or worn out tub seal could be the reason why the washer is leaking water.


The overflow tube : This tube is use to direct the water away from any electrical parts like the motor in case of an overflow cause by a bad water mixing valve or bad water level switch.


The pump : The pump job is to remove the water from the tank to the drain pipe. This pump has an electric motor and an impeller. When the pump motor is turning, any water that falls in to the impeller, is push out to the drain pipe.

Most leaks are cause by a worn out seal between the front pump housing and the rear one.


The drain hose : The drain hose is made of hard plastic and some times it develops pin holes and cracks leaks. Bad pump or drain hose could be the reason why the washer is leaking water.

Thanks for using FixYa and do rate the solution as Fixya if found helpful.

Need to find a new water tank


Mine also cracked along the seam several years ago. I sealed the crack using two-part waterproof plastic epoxy (found at any hardware store.) Not really pretty to look at, but it hasn't leaked since!

The coffee maker leaks out of the bottom when in use


I found the issue after about one hour taking the unit apart. Anyhow, in my unit there was a crack in the plastic spout portion. This spout partially goes into the hot water tank. After a bit of time the heat causes the spout to develop a crack, which leaks. I repaired the crack with some epoxy I had on hand and also added some aluminum tape to the area surrounding the spout. I hope the aluminum tape helps keep some of the heat away from the spout and prevent further cracks from developing. Its just a poor design, material wise, it should have been stainless steel from day one.
