SOURCE: E8 leak

If leaking water from right front when brewing, cleaning or steam then the possible problem is the feed tube from the pressure pump this is mounted with a small o-ring and either the pipe is fractured or the o-ring has perished.

SOURCE: Water leaking from underneath water tank.

I rang Saeco service centre about my leaking water tank and they posted me a new tank - no questions or need to return the faulty item. I believe there may be a bad batch of tanks which leak because of faulty valves.

SOURCE: Tassimo machine leaking water underneath

I'm having the same problem with my machine. I rang the Tassimo careline and they told me to descale the machine but, so far, this has only made matters worse. I'm now going to take it back to where I got it from because it's still within its warranty.

SOURCE: water leaks from the bottom of the machine...

There are many possible points that the leak can be.

All points of the water supply from water tank to the pressure pump then to boiler and finally to coffee group. All this are connected together with plastic or Teflon pipes with easy fit unions secure with clips

You need to disassemble the machine and work it without the side panels of course with extra care since power electrical cables are exposed.

In this way with a very good visual check while the machine is in operation you can identify the leaking point and fix it.

Hi
When the machine is done brewing some water is relieved into the drip tray. This is the pressure relief. Some coffee residue is also taken into the drip tray. This is normal. As long as nothing is under the machine your OK.

Just brought dolce gusto mini me. Milk flowing out everywhere.


You are not supposed to fill the machine with milk. Just water. It is a pod machine, you put a coffee pod in the slot. Then water in the tank. Push the button and it heats the water then when ready push it again and it dispenses hot water through the coffee pod. In your cup you will have hot coffee with crema. If you have a milk frother/volumiser then you add milk.
If you add milk to the pod tank, it heats up, volumises aka increases in volume and flows everywhere. I suggest you read your manual :)

Water leaks into pod drawer and not much espresso comes out


The brass plate shown in the box must be free to move up and down about 1/8". Here it is in the down position pressing against the pod to make a seal. If yours is stuck in the up position, the water will go over, rather than through the pod; and drip into the tray. Access is easy. Remove the top. Then take out the 2 phillips screws behind the door which hold the front panel with door and lights. Gently lift the panel up and out of the way. Run the machine to see if this is your problem. If so, free-up the plate by using a screwdriver to pry it down, and a piece of wood to push it up. Repeat this several times.

Why would my keurig only push through a small amount of water from a pod but give a full cup when using a fill your own pod?


Hmm, this is a very interesting question. My experience tells me it is probably two things that are happening with your Keurig. It takes a bit more air pressure to push the water out of the heater through a new pod than pushing it thorough a do-it-yourself pod. This would have to do with how much coffee is in the new pod, vs. your own pod and the grind of the coffee. My guess is that the grind in the new pod is finer than the grind you are using in yours. Anyway, the issues are probably experiencing are either a weak air-pump motor "and" a leaky solenoid valve, or a combination of both. The air pump motors are notorious for getting all rusty and corroded on the inside due to water leaking from a bad solenoid mounted directly above it. Once the motor armature starts to get rusty it starts to lose power because it doesn\'t spin freely anymore. In addition, the solenoids used on this machine are also notorious for leaking and the internals become corroded. Once the inside of the solenoid becomes corroded it gets sticky and will not firmly seat closed during the brew cycle. If the valve doesn\'t close all the way it will allow some of the air from the air pump to bypass the water heater and flow into your external water reservoir. During the brew cycle of a new pod do you notice any air or water draining back into the external water reservoir? If so, you have a leaky solenoid. Bottom line is, if you are not a technical person, you\'ve got big problems with your machine. This explanation is getting a bit long and boring (I know), so if you want to know your options to fix it or return it for a new one, you will have to send me another note. The repair is a pain! Good luck and I hope this helped.

Leaking from pod holder


I had the same exact problem and my machine started to smell even though I descaled it regularly and cleaned any of the milk that dripped out of the capsule. Finally, we took apart the whole machine and found a TON of dried, rotten milk. It was disgusting. We completely cleaned the accessible part of the machine with a vinegar solution and put it back together. I was hoping that we fixed whatever was causing the leaking, but no such luck. It is still leaking and still smells bad, so we are going to get a different kind of machine. I will not be getting a Dolce Gusto again, because I have called their customer service multiple times about this problem, and none of them ever had a solution. The whole milk thing grosses me out, I think I'll just get a single serve coffee machine and foam the milk myself.

I am using my new silvia with the ese pod adapter with illy pods. When I press the coffee dispense button with a pod in place, coffee begins to come out of the right orifice, then after a few seconds it...


"leaks noisily from what appears to be the contact between the grouphead and portafilter"
* Leaks from top of portafilter and group head are caused by poor sealing at head gasket.
* wipe top lip of portafilter before inserting into group.
* check if group is clear of coffee grounds, paper bits, tissue, dry crud. Use a head cleaning brush (tooth brush works) and wipe group clean (do not use screwdriver to scrape!)
* Make sure when inserting portafilter it is seated properly. (check your manual for procedure) Note the position of the portafilter handle if it's in the right position AFTER you tighten it. Is it far to the left? or stuck and barely hangs on to group?
* Barely hanging on to group? Check if pod is too big. Note; you can't double shot or use 2 pods in a single pod basket! Make two separate shots for a double.
* Handle tightens but slips off group or still leaks when pulling shot? Worn out or missing gasket. Gaskets are made of rubber and can crack, drop out, or pit. You will need to have the gasket replaced. Check with vendor or MFR for service/parts.
* Make sure you have the correct portafilter. Many look the same and may even fit but when making fine adjustments or critical shots they don't work right. Check manual or vendor for confirmation.
* Make sure you have the correct basket. The portafilters may have different baskets or cups that can be inserted. Many have special uses that can affect the pull of a shot. Fewer holes causes slower flow and longer brew time. Many holes gives a weaker shot but smoother less bitter taste. There is a blank basket that has no holes which is used for backflushing and cleaning of the group. Check your manual or vendor for which basket you should be using. Odds are that you have a standard basket ment for ground coffee and not pods. (you can remove the coffee from the pod but it will be messy.) Ask for the optional 'POD' basket insert.
* Finally if everything checks out and your still having leaks then your machine needs service as the group head or valve needs replacement. Call your vendor or MFR direct.

P.S. Looking back at my service with pod conversions, I've found that most if not all pro-machines don't really like the pod adapters. Sure it will work but shots are weak and poor. Pods really like a very tight fit with a very small portafilter basket(chamber) I mean like the size of a soup spoon! They like very slow and very hot water pumped with a vibration type pump to extract all the essence from the paper filtered coffee. Illy is an excellent coffee pod with a very rich aroma and good creme. The best for them (pods) are the dedicated pod machines (won't do ground coffee, only pods). If you must use a pro semi-automatic machine then I would suggest adding a port constrictor to the portafilter output. There may be a third party supplier that has a compatible adapter for your brand. I've come across some of these very extreme tools for the elites coffee affectionato. It restricts the flow at the output thus causing the hot water to brew longer and at a higher pressure to force the hot water and steam into each coffee grain. (think pressure cooker) Some of the better ones are adjustable. But note that these will need daily or cleaning after each use as these restrictors have very tiny holes which clog unless flushed after each use. Good luck 9on your pursuit of the perfect cup!)

Low Pressure


I worked at a tool rental while attending college and had the opportunity to work on a variety of pressure washers, however, they were of the commercial type. Commercial washers are slightly different in that they usually have seperated components for easier service. Attached to the pump by fittings or rubber hose were the pressure regulator (which has the bypass unloader inside), chemical injector, pressure gauge as well as the hot water release safety all external to pump. Your pump has all these components in one case. By far the most troublesome component is the pressure regulator/unloader which when failing will result in low pressure because it will bypass water back into the intake as you suspect is happening to yours. Here are a few things to check. I believe that your pump is 2500 2.4 gpm. Test gpm water capacity by running pump normally with hose and proper tip attached. Spray water into bucket for one minute and verify that you are pumping 2.4 gallons of water (or what ever gpm your machine is rated). Measure the amount of water that your machine delivered. If it delivered proper gpm and pressure is low then problem could be worn or improper tip. The pressure is created at the tip and pressure will drop as the tip wears. As the unloader/bypass wears, water will bypass at a lower pressure. (Try lowering the pressure regulator all the way ) If water measures less than rated delivery than the machine is bypassing water due to worn regulator/bypass, checkvalves pitted, oring in front of checkvalve worn or cut or missing, or body of pump where checkvalve/oring seat is pitted allowing water to leak past valve. The cap that is removed to access checkvalve must presses against checkvalve with enough force to prevent water from leaking thru oring and body of pump. Examine checkvalves and orings with maginfy lens and look for pitting. Valves surface and orings must be very smooth and tight fitting to work properly. Body of pump where checkvalve oring snuggs against must be very smooth. Any surface where oring seats must be smooth. As water bypasses it cuts metal and orings just like a leaking faucet so look for cuts in metal and rubber. This info and my experience is better suited for larger pumps and higher pressure but maybe it will help. Good luck with your repair.

Philips senseo coffee is watery


It may be the pod holder,there is a seal under the black disc at the bottom of the holder,the water will bypass the coffee under pressure,travel to the outside of the pod holder and exit the centre where the filter mesh is,if there is no foam also this is a sure sign,fill the empty pod holder with water and see how quick the water drips,I had this same issue and bought a new pod holder and compared,should be no more than 1 drop a second,you can knock the plastic out and re seat the O ring or buy a new holder,hope this is of use to you
