Question about Saeco Primea Cappuccino Touch Plus Coffee Maker
Water is leaking from base of machine on water tank side. Water is also filling back catch tray and leaking from under central unit.
New unit has water boiling over and is leaking around base. I am returning the unit. Had the same problem with an older unit but I got 5 years worth of use out of it. Could not find a fix that worked.

It is normal for a small amount of water to come into the driptray after each coffee brew. This is the pressure releasing from the brew unit. After a while coffee grouts will build up in the bottom of the slot where the brew unit slides on to the valve. (you see this slot when brew unit is removed), Get a small thin wire to poke in the hole and gently pour small amount of water by hand to clear any blockages.
clear water leaks from under the m/c can indicate leaks ffrom the teflon joints and/or steam valve assy. Some early machines had plastic steam valve assy's and leaked like mad. New stainless steel ones are fitted now.
hope this helps

Take out the brewing unit and check the hole in the chassis behind brew unit. It can also be the element that is leaking and have to be replaced.

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.
