Bansheracer- I have the same problem with the boiler leaking, and I'm also guilty of not descaling nearly enough. Anyway, I've already replaced the machine, but I just can't bring myself to throw away this otherwise great machine. I've ordered a boiler repair kit and I want to attempt a fix on my own (don't want to spend too much money). I have the machine opened up, but I'm not sure how to remove the boiler. Do you have directions?

Re: Saeco Magic Deluxe water leak
Hi Boilers leaking are usually a sign of not descaling enough. It is not recommended to take apart your machine unless you have knowledge in electronic repair. There are a lot of wires and hoses. Once the boiler starts leaking it needs to be replaced. email me for directions since it won't fit on this page.

i had a similar problem and found it was just a gasket on the boiler that wasnt sealing properly.i used JB WELD to repair mine.check all connections and/or gaskets for signs of leaks or possibly a broken gasket mating surface.
When the machine is done brewing some water is relieved into the drip tray. This is the pressure relief. Some coffee residue is also taken into the drip tray. This is normal. As long as nothing is under the machine your OK.
Your problem is probably the boiler leaking. Its located just above the drip tray in the center of the machine. When it starts leaking it goes into the drip tray or on the counter top. If you can remove the top, you can see if the boiler is leaking. There will be a white line between the 2 halves of the boiler.
No it cannot. I am not sure why you would want the water hotter. It is designed to be at the perect temperature for passing through the brew group for coffee brewing, its kind of a simple science. If your machine has been producing less hot coffee gradually, that marks an issue. Try descaling the boiler per the manufacturer's inscrutions even if the warning light isnt on. The other option is that the thermal fuse mounted to the boiler is bad and turns off the boiler prematurely, those cost about $15 and are simple to replace. Lastly, the boiler heating element may be 'burnt out' new boiler is $120+
I had the same problem. What may be the problem is the tiny water drip hole that feeds the drip tray is blocked with coffee sludge. Open the machine and remove the dump bucket, drip tray, and the brew group. Behind the brew group is a flat plastic piece which has a small drip hole at the bottom of it. This may be blocked which causes the water that should go into the drip tray to build up and overflow inside the machine running onto the countertop. Clean out the area behind the little drip hole and the hole itself. This should cure it.
Depending on the age it could be just some orings leaking or a connection that has come loose.
Or it could be the boiler leaking. Not knowing the age it is had to know which.
You should google "saeco repair" and have an authorized repair center take a look.
