The boiler drain is in the drain box, under the drain tray hidden beneath the black safety cover with the 4 small screws. There is a plug in the box, using a 17mm open end wrench you can open the plug to drain machine. It is also a good idea to drain the exchangers by disconnecting the fitting and letting it drain out, you will notice the 2 pipes going up at an angle to the exchangers.

Boiler,heating and water all working OK but manual override to turn heat on before preset time caused dripping under boiler.Cause and solution?

Did the boiler winter over with the heat turned off and no winterization? If so, then the boiler may have frozen and cracked. Replace it.
If it WAS drained down and winterized, and you just filled it with cold water before firing it, it may be condensation.

I have a Marzocco Linea and need to drain the boilers for storage. Can anyone tell me how to do this, please

Look at the bottom of the tank they have a red valve or a plug.
Once is off and cool down, Open the valve or remove the plug.
Open the steam valve (to allow the air in)to speed up the process.

This wash machine is in a park model home. How do your prepare it (wintrize ) for winter storage.

Just turn off the water supply to the washer, and lower drain hose to drain any standing in hose, that is all you need to do.

My astoria aep2 boiler seems to be running a lot. Is 20 seconds every 2-3 minutes too much. Could I have a leak. I can't hear one but would the steam wand valve cause this or could the thermometer be...

Three thing can cause this problem.
First is as you mention the air valve is leaking and is only due to its 'o' ring which can be replaced or replace the whole air valve. Not any steam should be leak from it at all.
Second during winter the water supply is much colder than summer so every boiler refill then boiler heating automaticaly switch on.
Third also during winter the room temperature is lower so the boiler is cooling down faster than summer since their in not any insulation around it.
If the presurestat which control the temperature inside the boiler become more sensitive because of years of work this is not actualy a problem since is use the same energy but now in more times and more frequent but for less time each time. Unless it stuck and either you have continues heating with no stop or stuck at alway off so the machine is always cool no need to replace pressurestat.

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

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.

I need to drain the boiler for winter shut down

There should be a drain valve/plug under the inlet/outlet header. Opening that should allow it to drain thoroughly. Depending on where you live, this should be done in conjunction with the rest of your pool winterization. All suction and return lines should be blown out and plugged as well as all equipment including pump and filter.
