My solis master 5000 is leaking water into the bin for the pucks

Water is leaking into the bin for the pucks. We have had it repaired once for this problem and now it is doing it again. I have descaled it about every 2 months.

HI
If you remove the brew unit and find water in the top left side of it, where the thumb screw is, you have a stripped thumb screw. This is caused by using the key to install the filter screen and pulls the nut out of the thumb screw. This is why they call it a thumb screw. Finger tight.

    You need to get a new thumb screw. Remember to remove the old nut on the screw part of your filter screen.

Never use tap water. Alway use bottled water for the machine. It will eliminate the descaling and the coffee tasts much better

Solis Master 5000 is leaking water from underneath machine when not in use.


HI
The most common problem for leaking underneath the machine is the boiler, but there can be other problems. If the water is dirty, there is a drain behind the brew unit that gets clogged with coffee residue, If its clear, its probably the boiler. If its the boiler it needs replacing. Check ebay.

My Solis master 5000 leaks water from the removable water decante


Hi
On top of the machine under the water tank is a doughnut cover. Pry the cover up and it should pop off. There is a black seal in the center that will shrink over time with calcium and that just needs to be replaced. When you go to replace it it will not slip in. You need to run your finger nail around the bottom of the seal to get it in. Then it will push down. Flat part of the seal up.

Solis master 5000 Espresso Maker is leaking


Before you go that far, what does the grind on the coffee puck look like; is it fine like powder or is it course. The water from the machine might not be able to go through the coffee and so the bypass is opening because of too much pressure. Try adjusting grind first.

Solis Master 5000 Leaks Out Bottom in Priming


Hi
More than likely the boiler is leaking from improper descaling. Seals do not dry out but they will become hard and brittle if you descale while the machine is hot. I would say you need your boiler replaced. Another thing that will make your boiler leak is not descaling it on a regular basis.

Grinder not working on my solis master 5000


Order the replacement boiler, (be sure to empty all of the hot water from the boiler first using the hot water function on the right side of your Solis) take your time and open the machine up, the top comes off. There are 3 mounting screws that hold the boiler in place, remove them, be sure to take hold of the boiler before removing the last mounting screw. Remove and replace the wires and 2 water hoses (w/clips). The orange wires the connect to a unique plastic harness are clipped into the harness. Look closely and you'll see a little window in the plastic harness at the end of each orange wire. Use a tooth pick or a pointed device and push the metal clips thru these windows, this unlocks the wires for removal from the boiler.
