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 john@uncommoncoffee.com.

Good luck

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.

HI
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.

Hi
Sounds like your drain is getting plugged with coffee residue. Remove your brew unit. There is an injector that has 2 orange o-rings in it in the back. That pocket below it is filling with water. There is a drain that is to the bottom left that goes into the drip tray in front. Use a prob of some kind that is about 12" long that you can stick down and forward in the drain pocket. Work it towards the fron and you should open the drain again. it fills with oils, so use some hot sudzy water and clean it out.

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.

Coffee is not dispensing during brewing, water dispenses in the tray


There is a lot of things that can cause that. The first place I would look is the injector behind the brew unit. Remove the brew unit. The injector is the finger with the 2 orange O-rings on it. If it is loose it will not go through the brew unit, just into the tray.
If the boiler is leaking it will go into the tray and under the machine. Any other leak would be coffee going into the tray.

Temperature control on Saeco magic deluxe


No it cannot. I am not sure why you would want the water hotter. It is designed to be at the perect temperature for passing through the brew group for coffee brewing, its kind of a simple science. 
If your machine has been producing less hot coffee gradually, that marks an issue. Try descaling the boiler per the manufacturer's inscrutions even if the warning light isnt on. The other option is that the thermal fuse mounted to the boiler is bad and turns off the boiler prematurely, those cost about $15 and are simple to replace. Lastly, the boiler heating element may be 'burnt out' new boiler is $120+

Estro magic delux (now saeco i think) water leaks below brew unit


There is a small metal plate with holes below the square funnel shape on the brew unit. This plate has a pink rubber seal and a stem that goes up into the brew unit. The stem is knurled with ridges and is attached to a screw on the plate. The screw has become loose and the plate is not held tight against the seal. Turn the knurled knob clockwise until it tightes the plate against the bottom of the unit. Make sure the plate is centered as I believe there is a slight lip that it recesses into. Should stop the water in the grounds collector. Of course the seal must be in good condition. Paul

Water pump?


If you could brewer coffee or get hot water out of the steam wand then it could be the one way valve on the bottom of the water tank. If you are running the pump output into a glass then it is probably scaled up in the boiler.
