Question about Saeco Magic De Luxe Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Water leaking from the tank & down the outside of the Magic DeLux

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.

My saeco magic plus leaks water when the tank is full


You should check the water tank gasket which is located directly under the water tank.. It is not part of the tank. It's on the machine side.

Our 7 year old Saeco Magic Delux has started to leak water when we fill the tank. It runs out of the bottom of the tank and down the side. Happens about 20% of the time. Is it worth having a 7 year old one...


If I understand well the problem is only with tanks valve which means the spring have become more soft and stays a litle open so you have water leak. It maybe because some scale or dirt keep it open some time.
In order to decide if it wise to fix it or not the answer is simple if you have a good coffee result in cup which means that the grinder grinds good, presure pump work good and boiler heat up ok then you will only need to complete descale the machine and replace only small cheap parts and you will have a very good machine again for some more years. Remember a brand new machine will do the same espresso like yours.

Water container leaking on Saeco Magic coffee machine


Hi
There is a donut like cap under the water tank on top of the machine. Pry on the outside of this cap an pop it off. Under the cap is a black seal. If you stick your finger in it and just pull out and the seal comes with it, you need to replace the seal. The new seal will not slip in you have to run your fingernail around the outside and silp the seal in. It should not just slide in. Make sure that the receptacle is clean before putting the new seal in.

Water leak between tank and main unit


Hi
If it is leaking on top of the machine and under the water tank, there is a seal that needs to be replaced. Lift off the water tank. There is a large gray doughnut cap that will pop off. Take a screw driver and slip it under the outside of the cap between the machines top and pry gently up and it will pop that side. Go to the other side and do the same. Set the cap aside and take you index finger and stick it in the center of the black gasket. Lift up and if the gasket comes out with it you need to replace it. Clean the inside of the receptacle before installing the new gasket.
Once you get the new gasket, slip it at a slight angle(flat side up), then take your finger nail and run it around the outside edge of the gasket. It will slip in, then push it down. Take the cover and snap it into place. Your good to go.

Water leaking under the tank


If the water is coming from under the cold water tank on the back of the machine it probably the o-ring seal in the grey machine recepticle which is visable when you remove the tank for filling. This seals the tank to the machine body and over time can leak (mine has!!). You can get them from Gaggia UK in Halifax

Filter in saeco magic delux


little magnet keeps that red light from coming on.

magnets probably gone bad, need to buy a new water tank. As far as i know saeco does not sell the magnets seperate.
