Actually, I had done all that and am very good about rinsing machine daily. Finally, had Miele come out and our problem was the beans. We had been using Starbucks beans for 4 years and there is just too much oil on the beans even with the cleaning. The screens were fine, but there was something that I honestly can't remember that was clogged. The technician had to take apart the brew unit to get it cleaned. There was so much "gunk" that had built up over the years even with the descaling and rinsing. We now use Dunkin Donuts coffee and it is amazing how there is no oil on those beans. Anyway, thanks for the help.

More then likely there is nothing wrong with the water seal but simply the tank was not placed properly over the seal and water was bypassed to the reservoir. If a significant amount of water sits in the reservoir the "Water System Fault" trouble will appear and stop operation. The easiest way to remove the water from the reservoir is with an inexpensive ($5) siphon tool available at any auto parts store. Once the water has been removed and you can operate the machine and it goes through the "Warming" sequence you will receive a "Air in water System" alert. Follow the simple directions in the manual to correct this trouble and your system is back to normal. I have heard people have been charged by technicians up to $600 to fix this trouble and told the seal had to be replaced. Just take care when placing a full water tank back into place and enjoy : )

From you description it seems that you have a scale problem. It might that the pump it working by the sound you hear but the scale have make it either dificult to pump out the water from tank since the piping have been narrow.
So first you should perfom descaling with a descaling solution and repeat this a couple of times one every other day. If the scale biuld up is not heavy then this will solve you problem and you have to perform de-scaling every 20-30 days to maintain it clean.
If descaling have not help then you need to desasemble the machine and clean the pump and pipping manualy from scale. This procedure is might sound easy but you should be carefull not to damage any important parts like pump, boiler.

The oils in this mud cake dry up right after the water dries up (over night) and presto you have concrete! This concrete becomes too thick to clean, so cleaning with tablets has to increase dramatically if you increase the strength of the coffee. If you leave it strong clean it weekly.
Normally you clean the brew unit with cleaning tablets every time you finish descaling. That's about once every 200-250 coffees based on the water hardness you set in the electronics. If you notice changes in the coffee water flow speed it's usually from clogging.
If you're handy get your camera. Take pictures of every step you do. Remove the brew unit. Disassemble the left top section (2 screws holding the long pipe). It compresses a 1/2" long spring. It may get away from you so be ready for it. The spring attached to a half round plastic button (valve) that looks like a rivet. Clean all brown gunk from this valve and the housing and you're cr?me will return. While you're in the cleaning mode remove the filter and clean inside under the filter. The filter is that round stainless steel screen disc with the phillips head screw in the centre.
All this is evidence that cleaning needs to be stepped up, good luck!
