Water reservoir leaks intermittently

I have a Vienna Deluxe that has operated well for over three years. Recently I have had intermittent leaks from the water reservoir. It appears that water reservoir valve is not making a good seal with the appliance causing water to stream down the back of the machine. Is there a way to replace the gaskets on the reservoir tank or machine??

    I have the same exact problem with a machine that is about 4 years old. The seal which is under a plastic retaining clip attached to the machine just below the tank appears to be worn and causing the leaking... I have tried silicone lubricant but that does not seem to work. Is there a replacement seal available for this unit?

Saeco use the same seal under the grey plastic ring on most of their coffee machines so it should be easy to find a replacement from any Saeco, Spidem or Gaggia service centre.

In most cases the seal isn't worn, it just isn't sitting right, so remove the grey cap (two flat screw drivers to lever from both sides at the same time helps) and reposition it. This is usually all that is needed if the problem is only intermittent.

Also check that there isn't anything sitting in recesses where the legs of the water container sit. It only takes a tiny bit of dirt to stop the container sitting in far enough to seal.

However, make sure the leak isn't coming from the container itself. Hold the container up with water in it and see if it drips. Check the the spring is clean.

My Saeco Vienna Deluxe has water leaking out from somewhere underneath - clear water.

There are so many places to check, but lets check the small chamber under the white plastic valve, which sits behind the brew unit, clean out the chamber of coffee grounds. If that is not the cause then, you will have to open the machine to find the leak.

How do I descale my Saeco Vienna Deluxe?

Purchase the Saeco descaler. Mix solution accordingly. Pour into water tank. Run a cappucino cup full of water through the wand. Wait about 20 minute and repeat. Do this until all the water is gone in the tank. (Don't run all the water at once!). Rinse water tank well. FIll with clean water and run through the wand. I do this twice just to be sure I have gotten all the chemical out.

Saeco Vienna Deluxe leaking problem and grinder problem

I would repair it, it sounds like the grinder needs to be adjusted (burrs may be dull), and the leak on the bottom may be coming from the small drain hole on the back of the brew chamber. If you remo;ve the chamber you will see the white water valve that the chamber connect to, if you look below the white valve the small chamber in there will be filled with water, below that there is a small discharge use a stit stick or paper clip to clear hole.

Water in dump box. Saeco Vienna Deluxe.

Had the same problem. I found that the rubber O ring around the plunger was split and leaking water into the dump box. It could also be that your O ring, if not split, is too worn to continue sealing. Try replacing the O ring. I am in process of doing that myself as I just found the problem.
Another possibility is that the filter that filters just before expelling the coffee is clogged and the coffee cannot escape, if that is the case you probably would be getting coffee and not clear water, I would opine.
