Re: water leaking

Water leaking in the DGB-600 is mainly caused by heated water escaping from its proper path. There is a rubber grommet on the underside of the upper part of the coffeemaker. (It contacts the lid over the filter basket when the front door is closed.) The design in this area is very poor; the grommet does not seat properly in the fixed part of the coffeemaker, and heated water seeps out. Also, the heated water tube that comes up through the cold water reservoir is actually in 2 pieces. One goes inside of the other, but there is no seal. It is a loose enough fit that some steam escapes, condenses on the inside top surface of the coffeemaker, and then finds its way down to add to the leaking. I completely disassembled my coffeemaker (3 of the screws in the upper compartment are hidden under small circular plugs that look like they are part of the plastic surface), and used high temperature automotive RTV sealer to help the rubber grommet seal better, and to seal the 2-piece hot water tube. Works great! But I must say that i have seen better engineering in child's toys!

Why is my keurig 560 leaking water from the base

Most likely the water lines inside your unit are leaking. If you can take the bottom of B60 off and look inside the unit. Usually, the line that comes off the water pump is leaking at the T connector. If not leaking there look for other signs of leaking while the bottom is off. You can call Keurig 800 number to see if your unit is still under warrenty. Hope this helps.

My Gaggia Syncrony Compact has developed some sort of leak. Every few days I notice a pool of water spreading across the countertop in our pantry and pooled under the machine. The leak might be happening...

I would suspect the seal on the machine where the tank sets on the machine. There is a plastic cap that looks like a doughnut, that will pry off (there are 2 hooks, 1 on each side). The seal is under neath. If you can stick your finger in the center of the seal and lift it out it needs to be replaced. When you put the new one in, run your finger nail around the outside edge of the seal to get it to slip in or you could damage the new seal.

The water container releases too much water and it spills out the back and sides of the machine

Water container have a small valve which work with a small spring and o ring. You can remove the container over a sink unit fill with water and try to press with your finger to check if it block the water without pressing it and also check visual if their any dirt or scale blocking it from closing full or if the o ring is damages in any point.
In any case the valve work very simple the the spring force down the piston and o ring should block the water from ascape if any of thsi is dirty or damage or the loose then the water will leak.
You should also check the valve base on the machine body since their can be something that blocking the valve sit corectly on base so water can leak out of the piping arount the machine.
Good luck

My bunn coffee maker is leaking. It is less than 2 years old.

I repair them. There are so many places it could be leaking from, you need to be more specific. To answer your question, yes they can be repaired. Get an estimate first, if you decide to have it repaired. The cost of repairs sometimes is more than buying a new one, or close to it. With a new unit you get warranty coverage too

Liquid leak while Vienna runs...but where from?

You may have a cracked coil inside the boiler and cracked nut of the coil going up to the wiring lug. Check it out, it will be a hair thin crack, almost invisible.

Shots are small, and water leaks from bottom of unit

You machine has an internal leak and this is why you shots were getting smaller and smaller. The more time goes by the more it leaks, hense, the reason for smaller shots.

You should have someone look at your machine.

Water leaking into machine

This happens when the boiler develops a leak, usually due to scale buildup. Order a new boiler and o-rings and replace.

Water leaking into machine

it's possible, like mine with the same problem, that one or more of the plastic feet under the water tank has broken, then making the tank move and upsetting the valve underneath. My one always leaks clean water, never dirty and I have a broken foot.
