Dualit expressivo water leaking

I think a seal has gone due to pressure build up of the steamer? Perhaps from lime scale ? I bought this item off ebay and it was not cleaned. When I turned it in to flush the water through I could hear the pump working and pressure building but nothing came out the steamer spout. Then when I tried to pass water through the coffee maker it just leaks out the bottom? Can this be repaired?

SOURCE: I have a Krups Orchestro

I had the same problem with my Krups Orchestro and today picked it up from service. There was nothing wrong except the internal filter was blocked and a manual clean by the technician fixed it. I think I exacerbated the problem by going to the finest grind over time the amount of liquid to the cup got less and less till it stopped.

Now I am using a courser grind - hopefully this will delay the onset of the problem. I was going to try a clean myself - but was deterred by the security oval head screws on the back. The repair centre told me they thought the Krups machine was a great product - and that I should expect many more years. It is essential though to perform maintenance (clean especially) as soon as prompted.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Bunn coffee maker leaks water

There are 3 seals in your unit that could cause your problem. there is a silicon seal right under the pour-in tray, and two on the top of the tank. one of those is for the thermostat, the other is for the sprayhead tube. any of these could leak, causing water to come out the bottom of the brewer. One other thing that can cause this is a scale buildup between the pour-in tray and the tank.

SOURCE: Bunn Coffee Maker Leaks out the bottom

Hi I have had this problem twice....this time I took off the top of the maker to check it out and noticed something loose and this fixed the problem, on mine at least. Lift the lid and take out the two Phillips screws, and remove the grid. Take out the three (or four) Phillips screws on this level and remove the top of the maker. There is a tube, with a hex nut around it, under the swivel arm that shuts off the water when the lid is up. On my maker this nut was very loose, even though the seals were still good. I tightened it with a pair of pliers( don't over tighten) and it hasn't leaked since. I also cleaned the water tray out while I was at it , as it looked rather yechhy. Reassemble and put the screws back in (don't over tighten, as they are in plastic)

SOURCE: Saeco Odea Go - Hot water leaks from bottom of machine

That's leaking from the hoses coming out from the boiler,if the machine is new it should be still under warranty, may have to take it back to the service center.When making coffee the lines are under pressure and the water never have a chance to pass through the ground coffee.

SOURCE: What is the best way to remove lime scale and

I always use CLR to clean my coffee maker. You don't need much more than 1/4 cup and mix with 8 cups of water and brew it like you would make a pot of coffee, then dump it out and run 2-3 more pots of just water, that should work fine. Also, run vinegar thru the machine once in awhile to help keep it clean

Hi I have a Hobart LXIH dishwasher and it is leaking water out of the bottom corners of the door. Do you know what might be causing this?It has a seal at the top but no seal on the sides or bottom.

Make sure your rinse wash arms have the end plugs. If one is missing, water will spray out door.

Your fill valve could possibly be malfunctioning, therefore not closing all of the way. I used to work for Hobart. These LX machines can be a pain in the rear. If you have a water softner, then the valve is probably functioning normally. I do not recall it ever being the door gaskets. I would think you should be getting an error code with the wrench. This is a hot water machine. If you have lime scale building up inside, you may try deliming it. The drain valve could be also causing a problem. There are so many things it could be.

Scrunci steamer no steam when the button (for steam) is pressed Vinegar has been used to no avail. Please advise. Thank you

Its most likely this iron is clogged with lime scale as you have already used Vinegar . Buy a lime scale remover liquid , mix it with hot water. And pour it into iron leave for 24 hours then empty , clean iron out to get rid of any lime scale solution. And try it again..
Hope this helps.

My Krups espresso 7260 is not producing full shots and water comes out under the machine each time I pull a shot or make a (not so) long coffee. Help!

if the machine is old it could be leaking due to lime/calcium build up limeaway and clr should fix the problem, if not you probably have a cracked hose inside

Water leaks from the door gasket during washing

Check the door glass for a build up of lime scale, and scrape off if there is a build up.
Check the door is securley fastened to the door hinge.
Make sure the door is closed securley.
If all else fails, then usually the only solution is to replace the door seal.

go get yourself some kettel cleaner ,,,the stuff for cleaning the lime scale off the inside of your kettel,,,,mix it up in a jug with warm water,,,,and tip that in your steamer,,,dont breath the fumes?
this will clean out any lime scale for you,,,next time fill it with rain water,,,,there is no lime scale in rain water?

Can hard water be used i n front loading washing machine

No prob, but it would be adviseable to use a product called CALGON, it is a water softning powder, and will prevent build up of lime scale in washer due to hard water.
Please rate my solution.

Clogged water dispenser in Bosch dishwasher

Hi, Logmanup (slight bouts with dyslexia, sorry)

By "spinning water dispensers", I assume you mean the spray arms, right? OK... if they are getting clogged with debris it would be nice to know what kind of debris. Pieces of broken glass? Plastic? Lime scale? Iron? And yes, when they get clogged they won't rotate, won't allow pressurized water through and therefore won't clean the dishes.

For the purpose of this solution, I'll assume that there are little white particles clogging up the jets on the spray arms. This indicates hard water and lime scale build up.

Other than completely disassembling the entire motor/pump assy. (you really don't want to go there), the best way to clear this out of the system is to use an over the counter chemical called Dishwasher Magic or something similar. If the lime scale build up is really bad (and it sounds like it is), use a couple of bottles to start with and follow up with a bottle per month thereafter.

As an aside... If I assumed correctly about the lime scale build up, that means that it's also affecting other appliances as well. Mainly, your hot water heater. If you haven't done it before, please read this to perform maintenance on it. And a product something like this for your washing machine.

I hope this was helpful. Let us know if this works or not. If not, please write back and we'll go a little deeper.

Dualit expresso 889 - faulty pump??

Actually solved this myself today. It actually was a buildup of scale as I tried a standard descaling sachet, followed the instructions and once enough scale had come out it burst back into life!!!

If you get 'any' flow at all the pump's fine so it just needs a really good cleanout - even if (like me) you think your local water doesn't tend to scale up your kettle.

Solis 5000

Kim, I'd like to know what you found out from Solis support. I have the same really bad leaking problem. When I dismantled the cover and peered inside I saw what appeared to be white stuff (perhaps lime buildup)on the outside of the pump. I descale every 3 months. I wonder if perhaps the my gasket is bad, too??? You may find this following article about this repair interesting.
