Water leaks from bottom of Saeco Caffe Charisma when brewing

It only leaks while brewing. Not when using the steam tube. I think it is not sealing from the brew chamebr to the tube coming from the boiler. How do I fix?

    It is clear hot water that runs out the bottom. I have the machine with the back left corner over the sink. The amount that makes it to the cup is reduced by the amount of water leaking. I get about 8 oz in the cup.

Remove brew chamber, check the back of the white plastic valve make sure the chamber under it is clear of coffee grounds and water, then check the red o-ring on the brew chamber make sure there are no cracks or damaged spots.

Relay will be fine if you fix the real problem. Get some new seals (5 of them) into the steam boiler and check for leaks from the teflon tube at the top of the steam boiler. When you have it apart tip it upside down, you will be surprised how much hidden water there is.

Have water leaking out of bottom, clear water. Will brew coffee but liquid is reduced by amount coming out of bottom of the unit. Have decalcified and use only RO water. Any ideas?


Is the water hot or cold? If cold you need to check all pipes and their couplings from the water tank to the boiler. If the water is hot, then check all pipes and couplings from boiler to brew unit and steam wand.

The water coming out of the steam nozzle is clear but fromthe brew head it is milky looking. I have descaled


That's ok .
The water from the steam nozzle is straight from a boiler.
Where as the brew head is fed from another boiler via the brew unit,so you will still have some coffee in the system.
If you wanted to you can rinse the brew head by making preground coffee without coffee this will flush it clean.

Water leaking and coffee dry


Sounds like the boiler is blocked, and machine needs to be descaled. Try this first remove the parnello if your machine has one on the steam wand then using a paperclip clear out the end of the wand, that might be blocked. If it isn't then run the descale to clear out the blockage in the boiler.

No water coming through the head after prime etc


I have the same problem. I disassembled the unit body from the boiler. There was some scale, which I cleaned out. However, everything was flowing through the orifices with gravity -- no need to use a pipe cleaner because nothing is clogged.

So then I started tracing the flow of water. There is only one thing between the boiler and the shower head: the solenoid valve (in diagram ER0182 part # 27).

Sure enough, the solenoid valve will not accept water through the orifice that would route it to the shower head. Of course, this is with the solenoid unplugged and removed from the system. I soaked the orifice end of the solenoid valve in some decalcifiying solution in the hope that the solenoid piston may be jammed with a bit of scale.

Now I'm going to reassemble and hope for the best. However, my guess is that my solenoid valve needs to be replaced. Everything else is working (pump, valves, tubes, etc.).

I will report back.

Steam comes from wand when set to dispense water.


Check the connection to the boiler from the pump, there is no water going to the boiler. Try this test, remove the brew unit you will see a white plastic valve behind it, carefully lift the small lever on the valve(HOT WATER), if water sprays, then the problen is at the brew unit, if no water then the boiler inlet or outlet is clogged.

My Saeco Caffe Charisma leaks water from the frother as it brews.


Hi
Mi=ore than likely you have something under the needle seat that is holding the needle open. Usually it is scale. Try doing a descale manually. Mix the solution and put it in the water tank. Turn machine on and then immediately open the water knob. Run about 8 oz. and turn machine off. Let stand for 10 to 15 minutes. Then repeat an 8 oz. run and turn off. Again let stand. Do this until the tank is gone. Then rinse, and test. If that does not do it, you will have to remove the top and remove the cover on the manifold that holds the needle and clean manually.
