MY Saeco italia has been leaking everytime it pulls a shot from the bottom of the unit. I opened the machine and the steam valve area is dry as with everywhere else. The only part that's wet is the...

it is also possible that the leak came from the pump as well most likely your lines are also clogged up with fine ground coffee past the brewer which stops the water from flowing and causes excess pressure which eventually either busts a water line or makes the pump push the water out past the caseing of the machine. Very time consuming finding the leak as well as replaceing the parts that are broken. If you have any further questions message me back. Thanks
p.s just curious because i ask all customers dealing with coffee and expressor machines what was the grind set to when you ground your coffee?

Saeco flow meter

Yes it is possible, or one of the hoses above it Try making a coffee with the top off to get a better view of the water leak. If it is leaking coffee colored water then it could be the small chamber behind the brew unit under the white plastic valve.

I have a Saeco Italia Digital Barista and we've used it for years every day and loved it. Unfortunately, it has started leaking water inside and dripping out under the machine I've tried descaling,...

Its probably a loose hose or a failed O ring. You can take it apart and probably find the problem and fix it if you are handy. As it is don't use it. It's dangerous. You cold get a shock. Unplug it and either repair it or take it in to someone who handles Saeco. Their website lists repair facilities.

Super espresso machine leaking

Your steam manifold needs to be replaced. I still have the original in mine but if you don't cool them down after steaming they will develop hair line cracks and leak after while. To cool it down after steaming push the steam button again, then open the knob and run it till you have a steady stream of water, then close the knob.
The replacement manifolds are black and have held up very well but they have a brass manifold re[placement but you will need new mounting hardware.

Water in the coffee grounds drawer

Look for a leak near the brew group on near the piston area.

Changing the brew group should solve this problem.
