Solis Master 5000 Leaks Out Bottom in Priming

This is a used machine given to me by a friend who left the country. I tried to prime it three times tonight. Each time, the machine leaked a great deal of water out of the bottom. She had already had the seals replaced, but I wonder if they have dried out once more.

If however, it is the middle compartment tray that fills up from the water not going hrough the pod: Turn the machine off with the Power button, and pump the pod receptacle latch on top 3-5 times. Turn machine back on. Ta-Da!

Hi
More than likely the boiler is leaking from improper descaling. Seals do not dry out but they will become hard and brittle if you descale while the machine is hot. I would say you need your boiler replaced. Another thing that will make your boiler leak is not descaling it on a regular basis.

For the past three weeks, I have had (fresh) water oozing out of the bottom of my Solis Master DIgital 5000 Espresso machine. I suspect there is a leaking hose or fitting that is comprimised. Are there...


Hi
if you have replaced the display, you can check the boiler for leaks, which is the probable cause of you leak, but also check the drain behind the brew unit. There is a pocket below the injector that can plug up and cause water to drain under the drip tray. Check this first. Stick you finger in the pocket and see if there is water in it. If there is, the drain below and to the right is plugged and just needs to be cleaned. If not Its probably your boiler.

Three buttons keep blinking: clean, water and


Hi
First I would start off with priming the machine. Push the water button ( right button) open the steam knob and see if the light will clear? If it doesn't you have a restriction in your flow meter.
If light clears, go to the next light, which is the clean light (left button) Push and hold for 5 seconds until it starts then let it go until it clears. About 30 to 45 minutes.
Then you need to descale. If you have never done it email me.

My Solis master 5000 leaks water from the removable water decante


Hi
On top of the machine under the water tank is a doughnut cover. Pry the cover up and it should pop off. There is a black seal in the center that will shrink over time with calcium and that just needs to be replaced. When you go to replace it it will not slip in. You need to run your finger nail around the bottom of the seal to get it in. Then it will push down. Flat part of the seal up.

Solis Master 5000 won't warm up


Hi
Sometimes when you first turn the machines on you need to run water through the wand to get them to start heating. If you have run water through the wand and it still won't heat up, you could have a bad board or sensor wire off, boiler wire off, bad element or thermostat.

No hot water


Hi
The boiler is bad or you have a bad board. I would suspect the boiler. You could have a wire off the boiler but I doubt that unless its the old pin type.

Solis master 5000 Espresso Maker is leaking


Before you go that far, what does the grind on the coffee puck look like; is it fine like powder or is it course. The water from the machine might not be able to go through the coffee and so the bypass is opening because of too much pressure. Try adjusting grind first.
