Question about Saeco Magic De Luxe Espresso Machine
Cont, drip tray.Their has been a gradual buld up of water in the brew unit,drip tray it has to emptied two to three times weekly.when we only brew 2 coffe a day.Isuspect the seals require changing are their any drawings available for this machine so I can see how many new seals and what size they are to replace them. Its not leaking badly as I only have to empty the tray a couple of times is their anything else that might cause this to happen ?? thank you Jeff Connor
Ps Machine is approx 6 years old.
The amount of water you are describing is more than I would expect from normal depressuring at the end of the brew cycle. On your machine a leaking steam valve will frequently drain into the drip tray. If you see water driping in the area of the coffee spout, then the valve is likely leaking.
The best way to confirm this or find the source of the leak is to take the top off the machine and operate it so that you can look inside during brewing. Parts diagrams are available at http://www.saecooutlet.com/partsdiagrams.aspx. You can obtain the parts from Saeco or one of their service centers. If you need further assistance you can email email@example.com.

The drip tray is for that purpose. When the brewing stops there is still basicly a draing of the grounds.which sre going to release what warer they can't hold. Until that is accomplished you will either have the drip or a puddle in the grounds container.. Best remdy, place an empty cup uner it. You don't want to waste that lest great drop you could add to the cup you are enjoying. There, fixed.The finer the grind the more residual draing you will have and of coursr the opposit wiyh coarse grounds. The strength is also affected and your preference is what counts. Enjoy.

Your grind might be a little to coarse or you are not getting a full charge of coffee in the brew unit. Water is released into the drip tray when the brewing is over. If the grind is to coarse or you don't have enough coffee dossed into the brew unit, then there is more space for water and you get more water in the drip tray. Open the door and push the lever at the top center of the door towards the plus but not all the way. 1 click back from the plus(+) is fine. When the machine is grinding pull the handle toward you(smaller number). Now change the grind a little at a time, but don't make it too fine. That will cause a lot of problems later on that is hard to correct.
