Symptoms just started everthing seems ok when starting up & priming when making coffee, there is a "puff" of steam coming near the steamer, and then some water appears to be leaking on the upper right hand of the cover (possibly condensation of additional steam). also, the grinder seems to be taking more time.

The steam and leaking in the upper right corner turned out to be a leaky valve. I may have been able to fix it by just replacing the O-rings. However, the only place I found to get the right rings was in the kit to replace the steam valve assembly.

When the steam valve assemblies fracture it is very hard to see without pressure. It is quite common for these to fracture over time, so it is worth replacing it. Steam getting into your grinder or electronics will cause terrible problems and isn't worth the risk.

Sometimes not always - puff of smoke when starting ( light colour) followed by lumpy tickover and noisey clacky sound from engine - all becomes ok when warm

I suspect smoke is just condensation in exhaust from suiting overnight. The other descriptions sound like it needs an oil change (noisy clacky) and lumpy starting sounds like dirty battery cables - clean them top and bottom. ??- When was last "healthy" tune up? Plugs, wires, all fluids & filters? I'd start there.

The milk steamer has stopped working. The coffee part is still working. The machine is about 8 months old. This has happened once before but it started working again soon after.

Straighten a paperclip and stick it into the steamer wand. You probably have dried milk gunk in the nozzle. After you've cleared it and it's working again, be sure to blow a puff of steam out after each use to clear collected milk in the nozzle.

Seaco Easy wont work/Warning light blinking always

Try descaling the machine. If there is no water getting to the brew unit then it might be blocked, if you checked the brew unit then the blockage might be at the boiler or one of the lines.

No steam or pump noise

get a used starbucks barista by saeco for a couple'll be pleased. (know i am-and i only paid $25 for my year old breville esp8xl POS). verify it works-it will probably last longer & perform better. if inclined/capable, maybe you can replace the pump yourself (a new one's prob in $35-$40 range; if more, scrap the machine or sell it "as is" for parts & put the money toward a better machine. good luck!

Do a compression test for each spark plug. Remove one spark at a time and see if you have the same pression for each one, if you don't remove valve cover and you see that the valves is not coming up
