Here is how I solved this problem. I had a small needle nose vice grip, the 'nose' is about 1 1/2 inches long. I tried to clamp the oval shaped screw heads in the vice grip in a perpendicular manner, ie the vice grip was extending away from the side of the coffee maker. There is a recess in the plastic where the screw heads are seated so they are flush when tightened. The ends of the vice grip were slightly too large to fit in this recess. So I ground down the ends of the vice grip so it could fit in the recess and grip the oval end of the screw. After clamping it tightly, I used an adjustable wrench to turn the vice grip and the screw to successfully remove them. I replaced them with normal Phillips screws during the reassembly.

Water is leaking out of the main part of the machine

I recently purchased a refurbished EM-200 and it did not work and leaked water all over the place right out of the box. Without doing anything water leaked out of the bottom of the machine. When I tried to run the machine you can hear the pump but no water ever came out and after a few seconds it quite and the lights would start flashing and beeping.

The mechanical engineer in me just had to solve the problem. I unscrewed and removed the bottom plastic cover (3 screws) where the power card goes into the machine and found the problem. The water from the reservoir feeds into a white plastic priming pump. This priming pump is assembled in two halves and one half has four plastic clips that hold the pump together. In between the two halves is a rubber o-ring. Well, one of the clips was not secured and I could see part of the o-ring protruding. This is an obvious source of leakage. Either the pump was not properly assembled or it snapped out of place during shipping.
I unscrew the two screws that hold the priming pump in place, leaving the hoses attached, and carefully pulled the two pieces apart. Note how the magnetic impeller is installed and reassemble the same way. Use a small amount of vegetable oil to lubricate the o-ring and reinstall in the same place. Reassemble the to two halves, making sure the o-ring doesn't protrude, then snap the two halve together tightly. Screw the primer pump back into place then screw the bottom plastic cover back into place.

After this fix the machine no longer leaked and it brewed a nice espresso. Everyhing seams to work find now.

Our coffeemaker leaks water from the bottom while brewing

There are many possible points that the leak can be.

All points of the water supply from water tank to the pressure pump then to boiler and finally to coffee group. All this are connected together with plastic or Teflon pipes with easy fit unions secure with clips

You need to disassemble the machine and work it without the side panels of course with extra care since power electrical cables are exposed.

In this way with a very good visual check while the machine is in operation you can identify the leaking point and fix it.

My Keurig Platinum B70 is leaking. When I put the water reservoir on to the coffee maker, water seeps out the bottom where the reservoir sits into...almost like the little valve in the reservoir stays...

My Keurig B60 had the same issue. The water reservoir has a valve in a nipple on the bottom that slides into a clear plastic fitting within the base of the unit. Water from the reservoir is supposed to pass through the fitting and into the pump, which is also in the base. Over time, hard water deposits can build up on the nipple or the mating fitting (or both) such that a good seal is not made when the reservoir is in place and water slowly leaks out the bottom. To fix this, I removed the five screws on the bottom of the Keurig and then removed the two screws which hold the fitting in place. I gently cleaned both the clear plastic fitting and the nipple in the bottom of the reservoir with white vinegar. After rinsing both with clean water and drying both, I applied a small amount of silicon faucet grease (available at any hardware store) to both parts. I haven't had any more leaks since, although I assume I will have to repeat this operation periodically.

Water not coming through

Descale the unit as described in the owners manual. If this doesn't work get a can of compressed air that has the extension nozzle on it and blow the air into the upper nozzle, the one that pierces the cup. Has worked every time I've done it.

Delonghi coffe maker leaks water from bottom

The problem is that the heated water is leaking out of the drip chamber. This is caused by the fact that they were to cheap to use stainless steel screws that hold the chamber top to the bottom. The screws have rusted and the hot water can escape the drip area and runs down next to a plastic tube that delivers the hot water to the top of the coffee maker from the heating element. To repair you have to remove two screws that are on the underside of the hot water drip area above the coffee filter. Then there are 3 tabs that have to be released and separate the cover that has the strength control from its base. When you pop off this cover, you will see the remains of 4 screws that are badly rusted. I used a small ez-out and drill to remove the remains. Be very careful to not drill the pilot hole through the top. I got lucky and was able to remove the screws and replaced them with stainless steel. An alternate method would be to use a food grade 100% silicon adhesive and glue the to back together. This method may leak in the future, so try to get the old screws out first.

I would recommend a MR coffee $30 to $50 models, on sale, for coffee before I would ever buy this European designed junk. I took this thing apart and just shook my head and said that you can tell things that aren

Coffee maker leaking from bottom

I have had a few of these machines leak.
I pulled off the bottom and found Mr Coffee is using low quality tubing that melts or leaks where it attaches to the heater element that boils the water. I replaced the tubes with higher quality silicone tubing that I bought directly out of China on Ebay and the problem was solved.

Bunn Coffee Maker Leaks out the bottom

I have an older BUNN B10 pour-o-matic that I thought was leaking from the bottom. Upon close inspection, I found that it was leaking from the worn out washers located on the top of the tank, allowing water to run down the sides of the stainless steel tank. There's a great fix offered on that suggests going to a hardware store and buying a Gardner Bender GHG-1575 rubber grommet with a 3/4" hole and install it into the large hole in the basin. Then place a metal washer on top of the grommet and snug it up with the threaded fitting. Many folks say it's a great fix. I went a different route. I called BUNN customer service and spoke to a very nice woman who understood my needs and sent out a free repair kit that contained a new fitting, washer, and seal. I received it in a few days and it's working great. Beats going out and buying parts for a work around repair. BTW, the repair kit is called "Universal Retail Seal Replacement Kit #37091.0000"

Same problem here. I did get it apart and there are two metal water lines each connected by a rubber fitting that is just slipped on. My guess is that as the rubber connectors get old they start leaking water. I'm going to try putting a small worm clamp on the bottom half of the rubber connectors to see if it stops the leaking.
