Question about Solis Master 5000 Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Leaking my Solis 5000 intermittently leaks from the water reservoir. If I only fill the reservoir 1/4-1/3, it never leaks. However if I fill it more than that, it may/may not leak. Water is all over the counter and floor when it happens. The o-ring on the drain looks fine. No cracks, splits. I noticed when I set the reservoir in its place, the o-ring seal lifts slightly leaving a fraction of a gap. This doesn't seem right, however it doesn't leak all the time.

Hi, My Solis master 5000 digital is having a problem. When we turn it on it says water tank is empty even when the tank is full. Thank you!


Check the water reservoir, if there is a float in the corner. Then that piece is not getting in contact with the reed switch in the machine. Try sliding the reservoir down the back of the machine so that it is always in contact with the back, or if the float is not rising when the reservoir is filled with water then the reed switch cannot detect the magnet in there. You might need a new float assembly.

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


HI
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.

My Solis master 5000 leaks water from the removable water decante


Hi
On top of the machine under the water tank is a doughnut cover. Pry the cover up and it should pop off. There is a black seal in the center that will shrink over time with calcium and that just needs to be replaced. When you go to replace it it will not slip in. You need to run your finger nail around the bottom of the seal to get it in. Then it will push down. Flat part of the seal up.

My solis master 5000 is leaking water into the bin for the pucks


HI
If you remove the brew unit and find water in the top left side of it, where the thumb screw is, you have a stripped thumb screw. This is caused by using the key to install the filter screen and pulls the nut out of the thumb screw. This is why they call it a thumb screw. Finger tight.

Solis master 5000 Espresso Maker is leaking


Before you go that far, what does the grind on the coffee puck look like; is it fine like powder or is it course. The water from the machine might not be able to go through the coffee and so the bypass is opening because of too much pressure. Try adjusting grind first.

Solis Master 5000 Leaks Out Bottom in Priming


Hi
More than likely the boiler is leaking from improper descaling. Seals do not dry out but they will become hard and brittle if you descale while the machine is hot. I would say you need your boiler replaced. Another thing that will make your boiler leak is not descaling it on a regular basis.
