Hi this is 2ndtimearound I didn't know how to update my comment. I
called Hamilton Beach and explained the problem again, the pot was a
replacement for the first one that was under warranty. Warranty's stay
with the first purchase they don't start another year, BUT they did
send me a new replacement part for the leaking one, not just a seal the
whole pot! I had just broken down and bought a different coffeemaker,
but will keep it in storage in case this one leaks as well. But I have
my machine back working, very happy. I really like the Hamilton Beach
47474 when it's not leaking coffee all over my countertops! Good luck,
when you call the calls are recorded and your concerns are written down
and reviewed. Take care

First I'm not a Delonghi tech. But I have worked on similar table top "Super Automatic" machines. You should call your vendor for service as there is no customer serviceable parts in this machine.
*** the following is for information only. ***
* If your leaking at or under the water tank then check for crack or you may be missing a rubber seal, o-ring, or washer. Replace the whole tank as a unit.
* If your leaking into the dregs or drip tray then there is a problem with the brewing system. Call for service. They may need to replace the brew valve or PC board.
* If your leaking at the bottom, drip tray, or side only when the pump buzzes (pumping water) then there is a cracked or disconnected hose line or fitting. Call for service and replace.
* If your leaking when the steam wand is in use then there is a similar problem with the 2nd pump system. Call for service and replace.
* If your leaking liquid coffee into the dregs tray or drip tray. Then you have a worn or missing group gasket(s). Call for service and replace. (you may find gasket kits from Amazon.com or online.)
* Final; Leaking water and electrical equipment is not a good idea. Best to be safe. Unplug and call for service.
Okay no model given,
* Pour over brewers only leak if over filled (more than a pot). If it leaks just sitting there then there is a hole in the tank. Call for service or replace.
* Commercial machines like CW, CWTF, Single, Dual, Urns, are plumbed into a water line. Leaks may come from the water line, Tank, or urn.
* If the water leak is clear and not hot then it's the water inlet line.
* If it's hot then the heater is leaking,
* If it's coffee colored then it's the urn where the coffee is being brewed.
* In All cases call your vendor for service as this is a hazardous situation. Unplug or turn off the power to the unit. It should be on a large throw switch near any large brewer. Have maintenance turn off the breaker and leave of till the vendor can service.
VPR has a semi-sealed tank that keeps +1 pot of water heated and ready to brew. Pouring in a full pot of cold water will fill the top tray and allow a slow trickle of cold water into the top which forces hot water to over flow into the brew basket. This continues until all the cold water drains into the heater tank. So the brew is matched volume per volume. UNLESS the tank was empty or not filled prior to brewing. Follow the brewing instructions from Bunn (on line for *FREE* download at Bunn.com)
* If it leaks (from the bottom) only when you pour in water. Then your pouring it too fast and over flowing the fill tray. slowdown, watch the level in the tray. do not fill past the lid.
* If it leaks just sitting (not brewing) then there is a hole in the tank. Call for service.
* If it leaks after filling the tray half way. then the top of the tank has a leak, loose, cracked, or missing gasket. There is quite a few gaskets on the lid. Call for service.
* Final; Leaks are always bad around electrical equip. Best to unplug and call for service to be safe.
I am sure that this would help out in a temporary situation but when you are in for a longer drive it can result in a breakdown which you must be prepared of with consequences. Superglue or cement can temporarily seal off leaks but over a time with heat and vibration this can fail. Hence I would recommend that based on the leak , you need to make sure that a proper seal is done even with an externalmetal plugging after a metal paste seal is done which could help out the case.
The bottom of the urn is sealed with a bright yellow rubbery gasket. As the button is pressed inward by the cup, a sliding lever lifts a valve in the urn. That gasket sometimes splits or wears, or sometimes a grain of coffee gets trapped between it and the valve seat. First try turning the empty urn (only the urn) upside down over your sink and pressing on the little lever under the bottom, while running a strong stream of water directly at the opening. You'll have to experiment to find how to press. That may clear the obstruction. If that doesn't work, replace the gasket. Instructions are in your owners manual.
I bet it leaks from the back, right? If it does, it has the same problem as my dad's.
You have a leak in the back of the holding tank. Fill it up, turn it around, without plugging it in, and watch for the water leak. If it's in a spot that you can see, then use some caulking to seal the leak. That should work. If not, it is leaking out from inside the plastic holding tank. Not much you can do but buy a new one.
it's possible, like mine with the same problem, that one or more of the plastic feet under the water tank has broken, then making the tank move and upsetting the valve underneath. My one always leaks clean water, never dirty and I have a broken foot.
