Question about Philips Senseo HD-7810 Coffee Maker
Water comes out of the back of the maching leaking both back into the resavoir and onto the counter resulting in a mess and about 1/3 of a serving coffee. I washed the removable parts, tried the other pod holder, and inspected the "shower head" for clogs. Still the same result.
Incedentally I had no problems until I started using the cappucino pods made for the machine.
I discarded the instruction manual so I would appreciate any troubleshooting advice you may be able to offer, even that information which is listed in the manual.
The leaking out onto the counter is coming from the reservoir. I had the same problem and was about to throw my Senseo out. Here's how to fix it.
When you put the reservoir back onto the Senseo the bottom fits into a hole that is surrounded by a rubber seal. The seal appears to be attached to the bottom side of the plastic shelf that the reservoir sits on. The problem is that the seal has pulled partly away from the plastic surface to which it is attached allowing water to leak onto the counter. Put a little glob of clear silicone sealer (like you use around glass) onto the end of your little finger and work that along the upper edge of the seal where it meets the plastic shelf. You want to be sure you go all the way around and that you squeeze the sealant into the crack between the seal and the plastic. When you're finished, wipe off any excess and make sure that the inside edge of the seal (that fits around the nozzle from the reservoir) is free of any excess silicone. Let it dry for a day and you're ready to go. I did mine and it works great now. No more leaks.

I was having the same problem and it appeared that the water reservior was leaking. When I disassembled the unit, I found that a flexible rubber tube that runs between the top of the unit and the back of the unit actually had a tear in it. I am going to the hardware store today to purchase a replacement tube and zip tie clamp fasteners. I'm guessing this will be a $5 fix. I'll check back in once it's completed.
Here's a link to the senseo repair manual that give instructions on how to take the unit apart and also lists replacement parts. FYI!

We have found that when this happens it is because it is not
closed properly, so it is not creating a tight seal needed to pour out the coffee. I have been shown to close the coffee maker
with both hands on either side of the top of the lid and push the lever down with both thumbs. Only after making sure the pod or
pods are evenly distributed in the holder [sometimes better if done while not in the machine] and also making sure top is lined up evenly with bottom [and you are not forcing it closed] only firmly closing it
. I have also found with espresso pods we have to put them in the espresso pod holder out of the machine and pour a bit of hot water over the pod first, that we have poured out of the cup after running one cup out of the machine to warm the cup.
