SOURCE: Unit leaks out of the bottom
Mine just developed the same problem. Me being an engineer, I decided to take it apart and found the problem. There is an aluminum tube shaped like a "C" with a heating element inside of it. Water flows through this metal tube, is heated, and then pushed via steam pressure. There is a metal brace that holds this "C" piece securely to the bottom of the machine. This brace is sharp and overtightened, which caused a small hole to form in the metal, causing the leak (in my machine of course). I am currently researching how to patch aluminum so I can hopefully fix it.

The water that leaks is cold. It's leaking from the top. Unscrew two screws on the sides of the water-in grate. Lift off and put aside. The next level has 4 screws. Unscrew and put aside. Where the water enters the heating cannister, there is a clear grommet. It pulls off. Put a ring of silicone caulking on the cannister side of grommet and put it back. Press to get a good seal. Now the top part of the grommet also needs a seal. Take the second level piece and put a bead of caulk on outside of hole that goes over the grommet. Press for seal. After caulk has set is should be all-set to use. toms

If it leaks DURING brewing, you may have to decalcify it (aka, run through a cycle of 4 cups vinegar, fill to the top with water, 2-3 times and see if it helps).
If it leaks before you even start brewing a pot of coffee, something is broken on the inside of the coffee maker, and I would recommend contacting Waring--they may be able to get you a replacement coffee maker (and if you're under warranty, usually a replacement would be free!).
Their phone number (according to their website, www.waringproducts.com ) is 1-800-4WARING (1-800-492-7464)
Good luck! :)

Have the same issue, looking for my receipt for warranty. All of us having this problem can't be wrong and it must be defective

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.
