    Same problem. Water is clear. Can't find a leak anywhere. DiLonghi replaced the water fill basket as I thought it was the problem; but that did not solve the puddle of water that accumulates whenever coffee is made.

The problem is that the heated water is leaking out of the drip chamber. This is caused by the fact that they were to cheap to use stainless steel screws that hold the chamber top to the bottom. The screws have rusted and the hot water can escape the drip area and runs down next to a plastic tube that delivers the hot water to the top of the coffee maker from the heating element. To repair you have to remove two screws that are on the underside of the hot water drip area above the coffee filter. Then there are 3 tabs that have to be released and separate the cover that has the strength control from its base. When you pop off this cover, you will see the remains of 4 screws that are badly rusted. I used a small ez-out and drill to remove the remains. Be very careful to not drill the pilot hole through the top. I got lucky and was able to remove the screws and replaced them with stainless steel. An alternate method would be to use a food grade 100% silicon adhesive and glue the to back together. This method may leak in the future, so try to get the old screws out first.


I would recommend a MR coffee $30 to $50 models, on sale, for coffee before I would ever buy this European designed junk. I took this thing apart and just shook my head and said that you can tell things that aren

    I removed the two screws under the lid and above the pot and gently pryed the cover off. I saw two rusted screws that appear to only hold the unit together. The four screws that held the chamber together were already stainless steel. Perhaps I have later model? Anyways, I tightened ALL of the screws - one of which was the rusted one that I don't think does anything to hold back pressurized water. I am hoping that thightening all of the screws (about a quarter turn) solves my 'water-leaking-out-the-bottom' problem. Thanks to you Richardkl for the advice!

    Mine is leaking cold, clear water. Do you think this rusted screw issue would cause this?

Water leak from the bottom of washer


Hi friend, thank you for your post!

I understand that water is leaking from the bottom of your Frigidaire washer. There are many components that could cause a washer to leak the bellow (gasket), leak from drain hose, drain pump, or water valve. Since it could be any one of these underlying issues I would recommend having a technician come out to diagnose and repair your appliance. Hope this is helpful. -Matt

Why would there be internal leaking into the tray


Never use vinegar to clean your machine. It is possible that the orings are worn out on the brew unit.

Coffee maker leaking from bottom


I have had a few of these machines leak.
I pulled off the bottom and found Mr Coffee is using low quality tubing that melts or leaks where it attaches to the heater element that boils the water. I replaced the tubes with higher quality silicone tubing that I bought directly out of China on Ebay and the problem was solved.
