My machine is leaking clear water. I ordered a new water tank. However, that is not the solution. It is still leaking. Wondering if there are any repair shops near Wilmington, NC

Check the membrain regulator for leaks. Those end up leaking over time as they get older. They look like this:$_35.JPG

and are located on the outlet side of the water pump. They can be bought for about $50-60 and just screw on to the outlet side of the pump.

My Citiz is leaking where the black, L-shaped pump enters the top of the white pump.

Take a look at the o ring if you can take it off and check the fitting is tight the may be a small gap in the seal when you put it back on make sure its tight the may also be a small crack or something in the pipe by the seal it worth a check and you can do it yourself

With plenty of water in the reservoir the empty reservoir light flashes and the pump shuts down.

ive been researching a solution for mine, the whole tank empties s water and fills resevoir under cup. however, ive come across ur solution and ill share it cuz i bet ur going as crazy as me trying to find out what to do. so my understanding is that the black square floater thingy tiggers a magnet (im assuming behind the plastic in the machine (so if the magnet could go threw walls it would go: the black floaty, clear plastic water tank, plastic housing main machine then the magnet).somehow ur magnet is dead. 2 solutions i read:1. recharge ur magnet. stick another mag. on there awhile ( there meaning the black floaty i guess)2. permently stick, glue, tape, what ever a magnet on the inside one . but this way ur machine will always think the tank is just remember its not. this info is only what i read, it made sense to me so i thought id share it with ugood luck:) sorry cant remember the url

I have an old version Saeco Magic Deluxe coffee maker, with a very severe leak at the injector. I have verified that the brew group raises the cup all the way onto the injector, and the O-rings look good....

At the exit point of the pressure pump there are is two way overpressure decharge valve with two plastic tubes. One is going to the boiler and the second ends near the injector and expels the water direct to the drip tray. As you can understand the above valve is working when the pump pressure exceed a pressure of 10-11 bars in order to keep the espresso quality high. Now if you desasemble this pump valve it have a couple of spings and small spears and they are probably cover with scale. the options in your case is that due scale either the pump is creating higher pressure than 9-10 bars or the valve stay open with lower pressures than 9 bars or both the case together. So the first solution is to try a very good descale of your machine and see if you have results. If not then if you thing you are able you desmandle both the valve and pump and clean then from any scale deposits. Or you can simply replace first the valve part no 5 at page 5 from 9 to this part diagram and if all above have no results then go on with pump replacement. The solution sequense is just for reducing the cost of the maintenance but if you thing that you can affort you can replace valve and pump at the same time that can reduce time and effort.

My CVA620 machine asks to "expel air " but

keep holding the hot water button down until you get a steady stream of water with no air. if you continue to get the error message after the water comes out, you will need to check the flow meter. if water never comes out, you have a leak inside the machine, a pump issue, or a blockage in the water path. That machine uses the same pump for steam and hot water, so if your steam is working, your pump is probably good. Blockages usually occur from not descaling properly. That machine is prone to leak at the hose fittings. the original o rings were black rubber, and failed fairly early. the replacements are red silicone and last much longer.

Coffee brewer works to the point wher you push the flashing brew button no water pumps through.


If your coffeemaker appears to be clogged. Create a vinegar and water solution and flush the concoction through your coffeemaker pump. This will help dissolve build up in your coffeemaker. If you do this once a month, your coffeemaker pump won't clog.Unplug the coffeemaker and inspect the pump valve. Water won't rise through the fill tube if the pump valve is stuck or broken. If your pump is sealed, replace the pump. If the pump valve is accessible, make sure there are no coffee grounds or mineral deposits around it.
Also check the brewing switch is in good working order. Remove the base plate on your coffeemaker and test the switch with a volt-ohm meter. Set your volt-ohm meter on the RX1 scale. If your switch reads zero ohms, your switch works fine. If it reads anything other than zero, replace the switch. Also take a look at the tube connectors, if your coffeemaker is sputtering, leaking or steaming. Leaks in pump coffeemakers are often due to faulty tube connectors. Unplug the coffeemaker and fill the reservoir with water. If water leaks from an elbow, clean the mating surfaces before replacing it. If your water leaks from a tube connector, replace the tube and mating elbow to ensure a good fit.

Water not dispensing properly

Mine leaked and wouldn't brew. Take the plate off the bottom. If the clear palstic elbow on the end of the grey foam wrapped check valve is at all loose it must be re-epoxied so it makes a proper seal. Once done (its easy with a 5 minute epoxy) the brown solenoid pump will pull water through the check valve properly and it will brew correctly. Carefully cut the zip tie on the rubber hose attached to the elbow and then take out the 2 black screws holding the entry fixture from the tank. Leave the 2 wires attached. It's a littl awkward by very doable. Re epoxy the elbow. wait a half hour for the glue to dry. Re-assemble it. It should work fine.
These things are stupid simple. A pump, a check valve, a heating unit and a little electronics is all they are. Don't be afraid to look for the problem. My guess is that you will find it more often than not.

Good luck

The pump isn't pumping. The machine is making the

There are no diaphrams in high pressure pumps. They use a small piston and check valves that can become stuck. Some can be fixed but that old it might be better to get a new pump. You can sometimes find them on ebay.

Krups type 897, nespresso: Water leaking from top of pump. I've opened the back of machine and found that when the pump starts the water is shoting out at the join to the clear hose. The leak reduces when...

I swaped the hose around.
The o-ring at the element end is bigger and can be held in properly by the clip at the pump end. The bracket/clamp at the element end holds in the smaller o-ring sufficiently.
