Question about Saeco Magic De Luxe Espresso Machine
I've looked at the gasket in the main body of the machine and it looks fine. I believe the problem may be in the sprin-operated valve in the tank itself. But every now and then, after filling the tank at the sink and replacing it (firmly) into the machine, the water starts dribbling out down the side until the tank is empty and the counter is aswim. The local repairman wants $125 to "overhaul" the Magic, but everything works fine except for this now-and-again leak. Any help?
I have a Saeco Magic Deluxe that does/did the same. The water tank, when filled would empty down the side of the machine and all over the counter top.
I recognized that the lid on the water tank, when pressed firmly in place, created a back-pressure because air was not able to get into it and level out the pressure. I've resolved this problem by leaving the lid slightly ajar allowing air to circulate into the water tank itself. I've also thought about drilling a tiny hole into the lid itself but have not done that yet for I don't want to comprimise the plastic.
