    My Saeco Magic Deluxe is leaking also, hot water is almost pouring into the drip tray while making a cup of coffee -- oddly the coffee still tastes fine.

    I had the same problem and my boiler ended up leaking into the brain and shorting out the whole machine. cost me $400 to fix it.

    I have a 4.5 year old machine. Had the leaking water problem about 3 years ago and had the boiler replaced at a cost of $200. It is now happening again - I was told the boiler had been replaced by a more heady duty version...very frustrated. Where do I go for service in Atlanta area?

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?
Thanks.

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.

Vaillant boiler leaking only when heating switched off.


It would seem a joint has come a bit loose from the heating and cooling cycle. put a drip pan under the leaking area( the drips would evaporate quickly), then next time you shut it down go through all the joints in the area with wrenches to find the loose joint.

Boiler Leaking Water - The Boiler Leak may not be the boiler


Went on one call today and had another query by Facebook about this so I though why not write an article about it. Both persons were very concerned as they saw water dripping from theirs boilers. A closer inspection for both showed that it had nothing to do with the boiler its self.

There are many things that can make water leak from your boiler. If you know for sure that the water is coming from a hole in the sections then you may have a serious problem. Usually though there is an easy fix for that also, more on that in another article. Both boilers today were leaking water from the relief valve.254c728.jpg

This valve is design to relieve the excess pressure from the boiler in case of a build up of extra pressure in the boiler. The extra pressure can come from a number of different things. A few of the causes may be a bad expansion tank, a bad fill valve or pressure reducing valve, or an open bypass valve. The bypass is easy, just close it and relieve the extra pressure. The others are not as easy.

Your expansion tank is simply a tank that allows water from the system to go in and out according to the pressure in the system.610ab3c.jpg This tank contains about ½ air which acts as a cushion to absorb the extra volume of water that is created as the water is heated. Hotter water takes up more space or volume, so it needs a place to go to when it is heated. If the expansion tank is totally full of water then, it will push water out of the relief valve. Changing your expansion tank will fix the problem.

If the reducing valve or fill valve is leaking by then you can also get extra pressure in the system.8e5ccb4.jpg A normal heating system will only run 10-20 psi pressure. Most well systems or city water is way higher than that. If the pressure in your boiler gets over 30 psi then it will begin to relieve the extra pressure by dripping water.

If you have a drip from your boiler this is what you check. First the expansion tank, the reducing valve, and the bypass valve that bypasses the fill valve. This valve is usually installed to quick fill the system, or purge the water lines of air.

Often there is just a small problem that looks like a big problem. Do not get excited and methodically check through the possibilities. You will usually find that the problem is not nearly as bad as you first thought that it was.

Hello, there might be a crack in the condesate pan. Usually if the leak is concentrated in one area that is the cause. If the water would be leaking all around then a blockage in the drain line would be a problem. Have the drain pan inspected.

There is a drip pan bit the middle is open to allow air flow through the coil and into your ducting. If the drain for the drip pan is clogged it will fill up and overflow onto your furnace and then to the floor.If that is what is happening then clean out the drain tube running down the front of the furnace and it should empty the drip pan and solve your problem.

You also need to have your furnace checked for water damage in the electrical components, if these have gotten wet then you run the risk of a fire. Please consider calling an expert in your area to inspect your furnace and make sure the drain line is clear.

Coffee doesnt flow but water gathers in the drip pan instead.


Hi 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.

Hi,

I think you have to replace your bolier in the machine.

If it is the boiler and you replace it, make sure to descale your machine regulary.

Best regards
