Water leaking from plugs on bottom of gas tank


That makes no sense whatsoever. If water were coming out of the fuel tank, so would fuel and the car would not be driveable in that condition. What you are thinking is the fuel tank may well be the bottom of the trunk. The spare tire wells in most trunks have drain holes in case water gets into the trunk. This is more common than you think. The gasket that seals the trunk lid often gets loose over time and allows water intrusion. The water finds its way to the spare tire well and drains out.

Unit is leaking water on the left side and after we fill up the water container. We are placing it in the proper position but it leaks constantly. It there a service fix for such a situation? ...


Hi
If its leaking under the water tank, its this.
There is a seal on top of the machine under the water tank. To get to it, remove the water tank, and set aside. There is a large doughnut shaped cap on top of the machine. Slip a screwdriver on the outside edge of the cap and pry up gently. When it snaps up, go to the other side of the cap and do the same. There is a black seal in the center and if you stick your finger in the center and it lifts out, it needs to be replaced. Clean any residue inside the opening with a Q-tip.
When you get the new seal, it won't slip in. Insert it at a slight angle (double lips down), then take your finger nail and run it around the bottom edge of the seal until it slips in, then push down. Snap the cap back on and your set to go.
If its leaking under the machine, its your boiler.
If its leaking into the dredge drawer, its the thiumbscrew in the brew unit, that holds the filter screen in.
If its under your drip tray there is a pocket behind the brew unit that has a cloged drain, just above the center of the drip tray in back.

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...


HI
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.

Miele CVA 610 coffee system says "water system fault" can I fix myself?


Hi I,am not 100% familiar with this model but the machine thinks the is a leak. Remove water tank the should be a hole visible under tank place finger in hole and check for water. If so remove water with syringe etc. Leak most likely cause tank incorrectly fitted or faulty seal on tank. If water tank seal OK, Remove water with syringe etc appliance will work. As a precaution remove lid and run you should be able to see any leaks. If not look for white stains on components. If no leaks or stains found it's was most likely tank incorrectly fitted.

I have two problems. Water leaking and not pumping.


HI
The first thing I would check is that there is nothing under the water tank or in the seal area that might be keeping the tank from sealing. Check in the slots that legs of the tank set on on the machine. If a bean gets in there it holds the tank up and the machine can't get water. That will prevent the pump from priming.
You could have a bad seal if you are not descaling enough. Easy to replace. There is a seal on top of the machine under the water tank. To get to it, remove the water tank, and set aside.

You could have a plugged steam tip. Easy to clean, just run a paper clip up the tip.

Water leaking during drain and spin


Hi!

You Need to check the following--

The fill hoses : These are located behind the washer and are connected to the water mixing valve and faucets. Pin holes and cracks on the hoses may cause them to leak.



The water valve: The water mixing valve is located behind the washer. The fill hoses connect to the water mixing valve. Inside of the valve is that the water gets directed to the filling spout. Water leaks happens when the valve develop pin holes or cracks. Bad fill hoses or water valve could be the reason why the washer is leaking water.


The Filling spout: Is just a directing part, this part directs the water from the water valve to the tank. Pin holes and cracks is what make this part to leak.


The tank : The major cause for the tank to leak is through holes or cracks that the tank develops because of vibration or metal items hitting the tank during the spin cycle.


The tub seal : The tub seal is made of rubber, it is connected between the transmission post and the center of the tank. Leaks developed when the seal gets worn out and it looses the ability to make a good seal between the transmission and the tank. A crack tank or worn out tub seal could be the reason why the washer is leaking water.


The overflow tube : This tube is use to direct the water away from any electrical parts like the motor in case of an overflow cause by a bad water mixing valve or bad water level switch.


The pump : The pump job is to remove the water from the tank to the drain pipe. This pump has an electric motor and an impeller. When the pump motor is turning, any water that falls in to the impeller, is push out to the drain pipe.

Most leaks are cause by a worn out seal between the front pump housing and the rear one.


The drain hose : The drain hose is made of hard plastic and some times it develops pin holes and cracks leaks. Bad pump or drain hose could be the reason why the washer is leaking water.

Thanks for using FixYa and do rate the solution as Fixya if found helpful.
