It is not the grind of the coffee (and, I didn't think you were using pre-ground). Mirko may be right, but there may be a much simpler solution. I have a followup question: is it taking a very long time brewing. That is, does the flow go very slow AND most of the water is going off to the drip tray? If so, it may be as simple as the brew-group being clogged. I've had this problem when I have not taken it out and cleaned it often enough. Every few days, if not every day, you have to take it out of the machine and rinse it thoroughly. It's probably coffee clogging the metal sieve on the top portion of the brew-group. That's where the brewed coffee exits the group (water flows in from underneath).
The other possibility is the set of gaskets on the white nozzle behind the brew group. You can buy replacements for those. If the machine is more than a few years old, that could be it. I can tell you how to replace them if you want to do it. It's not too hard. But, you do need a specific torx-head screwdriver and it requires some disassembly to change them out.

Happens when the preground coffee is not ground fine enough, you may have to put the pre ground coffee in a manual coffee grinder to make it finer. The machine is not really designed to brew regular coffee grounds.

SOURCE: water from steam nozzle

You have to send it to Saeco service center so they can fix it, it is the gasket in the steam valve that is leaking.

SOURCE: Saeco Odea Giro - Clogged and coffee come out in water tray....

This has happened to our machine that we use for our youth group. We sent it in and they said it was clogged also. Not having a clue what they meant. It happened again and I figured it out. When you remove the brew group there is a hole just above it that dispenses into the brew group. Make sure it is not clogged. Give it a try Good Luck

My Bunn coffee filter overflows during brewing. What a mess! Is there any way to slow down the water flow?


If this is a pour-over coffeemaker, you can't do anything about the flow. It's just gravity pushing the water out of the reservoir. But you can try using a coarser grind of coffee. If the grind is too fine (if you grind whole beans for too long in a blade grinder, for instance, or if you're using espresso grind coffee), the water can't flow through quickly enough and it backs up and overflows. Make sure your coffee is ground for a drip coffeemaker.

Hi, I have an XP7240 and recently i only half a cup of coffee. the rest of the water is coming from the underside of the machine(not the drip tray) where ther appears to be an overflow hole. This morning...


I can remove the bean container by pulling off the grind selector knob and removing the only screw.
Then remove the scute for the cleaning tablets. Then remove the two screws that were covered by the scute. Remove the water tank. Under the tank remove the two screws.
Then the trick where everyone seems to look for: The facade of aluminum can be moved off. Set the machine on the floor and pull hard upwards at the facade. This comes off (pull hard!) and four screw are uncovered. Remove them and pull then back housing of the machine (remove first the containers/drawers). Now the inner parts are freely accessible. Take photos and remove the components from top till bottom to get to the bad parts that need replacement. It's a lot of work but if you're handy you can get to the valve on the bottom of the machine. I have the same problem but haven't looked up the replacement part (can be expensive). Good luck!

A puddle of water forms under the machine and


Hi
If its dirty water your drain in back is plugged. There is a pocket below the injector nozzle that the pressure is relieved in when the brewing is done. This pocket can get clogged with residue after a while and then overflows under the drip tray. The drain is in back just above the back of the drip tray. If you pour water in the pocket it should come out the drain. If it doesn't, clean out the pocket, and that should take care of it. If it does,t, I need more information.

Bunn coffee pot blows water out top of basket


Check the grind on the coffee, brew a pot without coffee and if it overflows, then the machine has a problem. If it doesn't then try a coarser grind on the coffee.

Overflowing basket


The grind on your coffee is too fine, and if not there is too much coffee in the basket, hence the overflow.

Water overflows from filter basket


Coffee overflowing onto the counter is a common complaint found in response to many automatic drip coffee makers. The following are potential solutions that can be used to rule out "operator error" vs. a defect or malfunction:

1. Do not "pack" or otherwise overfill the cone/basket with grinds.
2. Ensure you are using the correct grind for an automatic drip coffee maker, neither too fine nor too course. (See instruction manual.)
3. Do not overfill with water. Use the carafe to pour water into the reservoir. This is because a "cup" in coffee terms is defined as 6 oz, not 8 oz. Note: Some coffee makers define as little as 5 oz as a cup.
4. Make sure the filter cone/basket clicks into place and that the carafe is centered and pushed all the way in.
5. Try a permanent filter rather than a paper filter or vice versa.
6. Only use the correct permanent or paper filter (see manual).
7. Verify that the Pause 'n Serve button isn't sticking. If it is activated too long the brew will escape over the top of the cone/basket. This may be more apt to happen if the alignment of the carafe and the basket is incorrect.
8. Clean your machine with vinegar or as instructed by your user manual at least three times per year, more if your water supply is hard. A properly cleaned machine is less likely to suffer a burned out heating element, to take too long to brew, to produce "off" tasting coffee, or to clog and overrun the filter basket as the water runs through the grinds.
9. Ensure that the coffee machine is sitting level on the counter.

Over flow


I think you have to be careful in how much water you put in. I had the same problem the first few times I used it. I started to only fill until the water just met the 10 cup mark, not over it. I have not had the problem since.
