    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 It is now happening again - I was told the boiler had been replaced by a more heady duty version...very frustrated.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.

Our Saeco Magix Deluxe (old style) has developed a leak. It happens inside the machine, on the left, and is pretty severe, during coffee making. Sometimes there is just a little coffee ground in the...


Hi
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.

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.

Temperature control on Saeco magic deluxe


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+

Water leak


your machine needs repair. could be a leaky valve, clogged release chute, or a boiler gone bad.

90% of the time is a bad boiler.

Boiler work is going to cost ya on average 200 and up.

Leaking Water shorts out machine


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.

Water leaking


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.
