My Seaco Royal Machine has got double problems. The first one is; water dripping from the bottom to the floor. The second is; coffee coming out slowly (drops ). The second is; the sounds that accompany the...

The leak may be due to a clogged weep passage that resides behind the brew group and empties into the drip tray in the front. Take a long piece of wire or a good paperclip and straighten it out. Take some hot soapy water and a small syringe and wash that area out with the drip tray installed. As for the coffee coming out too slowly, you may want to adjust the grinder to a more coarse grind by one or two clicks. After each single adjustment to the grinder, it will take two brew cycles to catch up to the adjustment. Don't make too many adjustments without running at least two cycles in between each adjustment. If that does not solve the problem, you may need to take it to the repair center nearest you to have them check out the pump.

Its not the water. More than likley its the lever on the right side of the machine at the top middle of the door. Its pushed all the way to the back or positive. Move it 1 mark towards the front of the machine and try again. If you put too much coffee in the brew unit, it can't compress it and kicks it out. It could also be your grind is too coarse. It should look like auto drip coffee.

Hi there...have the light continually flashing red...have cleaned it all out and everything is puched in etc...any ideas what it could be?

Had the same problem, switch off, take out the coffee dispensing unit. close everything else up, drip tray, dregs box and front door etc then re apply power. It'll clunk and whir a bit then stop. Switch off and refit the coffee dispensing unit making sure it fits flush with the rear of the housing (you can check this by looking through the hole where the dregs drawer fits. power up again and it'll clunk and whir again as it resets the dispensing unit. I hope you'll find that it's ok now.

Very little water is dripping into the carafe

Try to run vinegar undiluted through the coffee maker first. If this does not help, you may have a plugged valve in the coffee maker or a tube/hole where the coffee maker water should drip through. if this coffee maker has a dispenser(where you put your cup against it and the coffee comes out) then there is likely a plugged up valve. This will require dismantling the coffee maker to clean it. Usually coffee makers get plugged up because coffee leaves a residue that requires scrubbing at time to remove.

Water not coming out of dispensing area, goes to drip tray instead Water comming out in drip tray instead of regular way

Try this, if the machine has a pregrind door(usually on the top front) then use the button to tell it you are using pre grind coffee, if water comes out the spout this way then the grind on the grinder is too fine, if it goes out the drain then the coffee passage is blocked, remove the brew unit and check/clear tubes, also clean the spouts on the door of the unit.

Drip Drawer will not release

The tray appears to have been inserted just slightly askew, causing the notch in the back of the tray to get hooked under that black bit. I was finally able to remove it by tilting the front upward and pulling out. I have reinserted the tray several times since and it pulled out as simply and smoothly as it usually does.

Try using straight vinger through the complete cycle then run plain water through the cycle see if that helps. It helps to clean the machine.
