Question about Saeco Vienna De Luxe Espresso Machine
Water is leaking from the container in my coffee maker. However if i do not lower the container back into place inside the machine there is no leakage so the problem is not the container but the machine.
Can you help please
OK, I finally called Saeco. There are about four rubber rings that you need to get. The one for the water resevoir is a big thick black ring and once you get it and look at the new and the old, you can see why it is leaking. Anyway, fixes it no problem.
The overflow in the drip tray? There are two rings in the back of the machine that will fix that problem. Problem? I got them, but haven't put it on there because it very hard to get in there.
Last one, the ring around the coffee puck maker (what do you call that part) It's the piston that catches the coffe and raises up to tamp it down, then holds it as the water goes through. ANyway, big ring around that. If you aren't getting a nice crema on top, that ring will cure that.
I saw get all four, replace them all at once and then descale the coffee maker and be done with it. You'll be working like new in a few hours or maintenance. For most of us, it's been like 3 years anyway, time to do it.
Lastly, when you call Saeco, (Pronounced I found our SA Yey Co) ask for the directions for cleaning out the grinder. Even has notes on how to get it back together with all the adjustments in the right spots.
The rep on the phone says she likes this model better than most fo the new ones.

Replace the rubber gasket on the tank.
A very common problem.

I had the same problem, until I discovered that there is a drain located in the back of the machine that drains into the drain tray. If this drain is clogged (like mine) when ever you brew, the small excess water, instead of draining as it should into the tray, drains into a very small reservoir that holds the slight excess of water that occurs with every cup. When the reservoir finally fills up, it pours over the lip and into the machine and all over the place missing the drain tray. It is messy.
The solution is to remove the brew group, look into the back where the brew group inlet nozzle fits, and you will see the discharge nozzle leading down from the top left and into a reservoir. You cannot see the drain because it is behind the axle that drives the group, but you can feel it if you stick your finger in and down to the right. You can see its discharge port, down at the drain tray. Clean it, until you can run clear water into it and see it drain out the bottom drain port into the drain tray, which you should reinsert before you pour water.
