Re: trouble installing replcement gasket in Solis Crema...
SL 70/90 Brew Head Gasket Replacement
Time 1 to 2 hrs
Tools # 2 allen wrench
# 1 Phillips screw driver
# 2 Phillips screw driver
# 13mm wrench
First unplug the machine. Next remove the screw in the top back of the machine. Push the top forward with your fingers. This unlocks the top and it can be placed behind the machine with the wire connected. Next rotate the steam knob counter clockwise till it stops. Inside next to the micro switch there is a brown cam. On the backside of the cam is the #2 allen screw. Loosen this screw and the rotate the steam knob clockwise until it is removed. Now remove the clip on the steam manifold that holds the steam wand. There may be a plastic tie that is securing the clip. Cut it. Pull out the steam wand and let it rest on the bottom cover.
Next remove the 4 large screws that hold the cover plate around the brew head. This will allow the cover plate to drop down and swivel on the steam wand, exposing the nuts that hold the boiler on the bottom metal plate. The nuts that hold the boiler on are # 8. Before you loosen the nuts you need to remove the water inlet nut on the side of the boiler. It is a #13 wrench. Remove the water line. Now remove the nuts that hold the boiler on.

i just replaced rubber gasket on miele w4840 it took lots of patience! there is a retaining wire on spring on front part this is easily removed. next there is a light and water line about 11 o'clock take this apart and unhook water line in order to remove these from gasket. next there is a locking wire on right side at 9 o'clock. i was able to get a flat head screwdriver and loosen the screw you can open about 1 -1.5 inch at this point the rubber seal can be removed. you have to carefully (painstakingly) put the new seal on. make sure everything is lined up right before replacing the wires took me about an hour as the gasket is difficult to put on back part on drum
You have to take apart the system for changing the gaskets.If you are not a technical savvy don't try for it.Here is the parts diagram for your machine.Many of my fixya customers took apart the system to change the valve and they suffered a lot to fix it again back.All the best.
Boiler end gasket
Gasket for above
Group touch pad
Steam + water valve
Drip tray grill
Pop off valve
Water flow meter
Water level Probe
Auto refill relay effect
Filter basket single
Steam-water valve knob
Heater exchanger injector
Manual refill valve
the gasket look like this.I will cost around 12$.

My GE washer model wcvh6400j0ww was leaking too. The repair person
thought the same thing the gasket. It turned out to be the water in-let pipe
(WH41X10118 and you will need seal WH41X10119) and not the gasket. He ordered the gasket and took machine apart to replace and found cracked pipe. Take your machines front off and make sure it is the gasket leaking. Good Luck,

4.0 L engine is likely the last easy engine to work on. Get a haynes or chilton manual and follow the directions. In order not to destroy anything, that lies with you. Use care, don't force anything and use the proper tools. As far as "taking apart" , some items such as the crankshaft are not removable without taking the engine out. A carefully torn down engine should need no more than replacement of worn or damaged parts and a gasket set (plus machine work where necessary) Any questions about a specific component can easily be answered by anyone here.
you might have to order a new container, because i have not been able to find individual parts for sale. however, you might try and call the manufacturer, because sometimes you can order replacement parts.
There are 3 things that could be the problem.
1. The power board on the left rear inside.
2. Heating element is burnt out. Replace the top part of the boiler and order a brew head gasket and replace it at the same time while you have the machine apart.
3. and less likely is the temperature sensor. 2 red wires goes from the board to the top of the boiler.
