If your full model number is F9054 then Part number for the seal is F909378. It is not part of the tank, there is just a spring loaded stopper valve in the tank. The tank seal for when the tank is in place is in the socket the tank plugs into. You need to remove the top of the socket to expose and change the seal. If you want to mess about you can hook out the old seal without removing the seal cover but it is very difficult getting the new one in properly this way.

SOURCE: Krups type 897, nespresso: Water leaking

I swaped the hose around.
The o-ring at the element end is bigger and can be held in properly by the clip at the pump end. The bracket/clamp at the element end holds in the smaller o-ring sufficiently.

SOURCE: Saeco Vienna leaks water from water tank

Sorry for the delay in response but I just read your complaint. I had similar water leakage issues and mistakenly replaced a bunch of stuff without stopping the leaks, until I discovered the real problem; the O ring seal that the water reservoir sits in located under the reservoir where it mates with the machine. Easy to replace and cheap. No leakage problems since I both replaced the O ring and started the routine of not taking off the water reservoir to fill it, but leaving it in place and filling it from a bottle. That technique does not any wear at all on the seal ring and so it won't leak in the future.
The item is called a "Saeco-water inlet valve gasket" , has a part number of NM05.006 and costs $7.50. I purchased it from Services Unlimited located at 650 N. Cannon Ave. WH-305, Lansdale PA 19446; phone 215-361-7000 Fax 215-361-7434, e mail but you can find it at any authorized dealer, I am sure. I ordered two and with shipping the cost came to $21.50.
You can request a fax with a parts diagram and listing, which I found most helpful in diagnosing issues and see where stuff goes..
Hope this helps you..

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: Krups model KM7005 water wont heat

Mine had the same problem ... all the lights are on, but no heating on the plate, and no dripping of water.

After a weekend on the workbench, I've mastered this machine. The KM7005 has 2 x MicroTemp G4 thermal cutoff (TCO) fuses which interrupt the Live line, for overheat protection. Mine didn't overheat per se, but the TCO blew anyway. Not reset-able ... need to be replaced with a soldering iron. I'll be happy to advise you to fix this, or fix it for you. Write me at

How do I cycle the valves on the bottom with the eraser end of a pencil on my hoover dual vac shampooer

The center part of the valve (stem) pushes up (spring loaded) to release liquid. If it leaks it can (and should) be replaced. Also, check the black valve seal (conical shaped ring around the outside) for cracks or splits as this can contribute to leaks. The entire valve assembly (similar to photo) should be replaced to solve both issues.

Leaking xp7240

There are many places for the water to leak out the bottom on those. You are going to need to remove the covers and have a look. Is the water clean or is it part of your brew? In order of most likely to least likely
1) Barista seal at bottom of brew chamber
2) Distributor
3) Tank seal
4) Tamping piston seals
5) Flexible hose or connection
6) Hydraulic Ram
7) Relief valve on end of pump
You are not going to figure it out with the covers on and you will have great difficulty running it with covers off to be certain where it is coming from but that is what most of those issues is going to require.

Krups water leak

It could be the seal where the tank engages. I would remove the bottom and prop it up so I could see underneath it and then engage the tank and see where the water is coming from. Sometimes putting it over a mirror and having a torch on hand can help you see deeper inside while it is leaking.

Orchestra 889 water tank leaks

If it is not a cracked tank then it can only be the tank seal which is in the housing where the neck of the tank locates. It's not really a very common problem though.

I have a Krups XP 7230 Expresso Machine. Water is...

I have a xp7240 which I believe has the same housing as yours. I can remove the bean container by pulling off the grind selector knob and removing the only screw.
Then remove the scute for the cleaning tablets. Then remove the two screws that were covered by the scute. Remove the water tank. Under the tank remove the two screws.
Then the trick where everyone seems to look for: The facade of aluminum can be moved off. Set the machine on the floor and pull hard upwards at the facade. This comes off (pull hard!) and four screw are uncovered. Remove them and pull then back housing of the machine (remove first the containers/drawers). Now the inner parts are freely accessible. Take photos and remove the components from top till bottom to get to the bad parts that need replacement. The valve that leaks is on the bottom of the machine (will cost you a lot of time to get to it. Don't know the replacement price.) Good luck!

Leaks water very bad states water tank empty

You boiler is leaking, sorry. This is usually caused from not descaling enough or doing it improperly. Everybody thinks their water is good and sets the water hardness very low. This is a problem. All water except distilled has minerals and these minerals end up in our boiler. After a while these minerals end up between the halves of the boiler and that keeps the seals from doing their job (preventing water from leaking) and you get water leakage. When you pressurize the brew unit the first bit of water will fill the boiler and then the brew unit but part of it will leak. It will only get worse if you don't replace the boiler. You show a new model, but if yours doesn't look like the picture, its the older model and that is the one I am talking about. If you have a new model you have a different boiler. Those just plug up with scale and you throw them away Doing a descale is very important like changing your oil. Do it more often and you machine will last a long time. Set your water hardness to 4 in your menu. Always push the enter button after you make a change to lock it, or it will be the same as you had it.

Krups Orchestro Leaking

This is a common fault on these machines i have replaced every seal on mine and it still leaks,unless it is really bad i would advise that it be left alone.p.s they are a bit of cuckoo clock inside a proper strip and clean takes about two hours and the parts are hard to come by.

Leaking from the water Chamber

The Krups heats the water through a horseshoe shaped aluminum tube which the heating element is wrapped around the tube in the same fashion, the tube is corroded or cracked most likely, if you poured cold water into the machine when it was hot, this will crack the tube, they are made by Cesod ? which is stamped on the element with a number on it,  and I have seen between 700 and 1100 watt elements. I have the same problem with my 7 year old krups coffee maker, Im trying to repair the tube with aluminum welding or find a new element.  It could also be the high temp tubing may be cracked.  You need tamper proof Torx bits to remove the bottom cover on some models.
