Leakage when filling espresso cup


  1. my coffee machine I've had for over 5 yrs, has just started leaking when I go to make a cup of coffee. water fills the catch basket quickly. I think I may have a bad seal? Don't know. Will someone help me? Where can I send it to get it fixed?

    Same thing. It gets a bit worse all the time. Now it also drips through the espresso spout when making hot water. The dealer says the seals need to be replaced.

    I get the same exact thing, which seals need to be replaced and how? The dealer I buy the cartridges/capsules from tells me its air trapped in the machine blocking water pressure, that needs to be released through the froth/steam wand. I make steam for a bit, but the problem still persists. This dealer is also an authorized Lavazza machine repair center, but as you can see they just come up with excuses and when I do send in the machine they can't find anything wrong with it. I'm willing to bet its the Lavazza cartridges/capsules that are defective, if you notice some are malformed, bottom filter on the cartridge a little off not covering whole bottom, I order in quantities of 200 and some batches I get work flawless and others just give me problems. I'm willing to bet its a problem at the Lavazza factories that make these cartridges.

    Does the dealer know where these parts can be purchased? Or can the dealer get them and who is the dealer?

I had the same problem, there is a O-ring seal between the heater and water feed...U have to remove apprx 8 allen screws on the top of the heater plate, remove the wiring connectors from the heating element and overload sensors and the heater plate romoves from the attached bottom plate. The seal is located on the center nipple and is apprx 1/8" round. Replacing it with a seal from the hardware store corrected my problem...GOOD LUCK!

Saeco Vienna machine...after brewing a couple of cups of coffee, water leaks from somewhere and comes out underneath the front grilled tray and onto the counter. Can I do the repair with the proper parts?

Depending on your ability to do some technical and minutious manual work, unmounting and remounting the machine is feasable.

Concerning the leaking, what I've seen most is a leak from the seal under the water tank. Any leaks coming form there would occur even though no coffee would be dispensed. (i.e: Idle mode)

If leak is ONLY occurring when brewing cofee, I would check the following:

1- Check if the water inlet on the back of the brew unit is filled with residue (the inlet looks like the end of a smoke pipe)

2-Open the machine, take out the interior, and verify the water tubes coming in and out of the boiler. They both should be sealed with 2 small o-rings. After time, o-ring tend to expand under heat and may start to leak.

Hope this helps

My K-cup leaks and sprays coffee. Produces weak coffee with 2 tablespoons. Disappointed with product.

I had the same issue and found a **** fix that is working well. The issue is that the hole in the my-kcup doesn't seal to the machine so I take a square of foil and put it over the top of the closed my-kcup assembly, crimping it under the rim of the cap. This seals the assembly and forces the water through the my-kcup. It also makes a better cup of coffee because the water is all going through the grounds. The other thing... do not over fill the my-kcup... that also produces spraying and leakage.

Saeco stratos coffee maker started to leak inside the machine. I have cleaned the unit recently. It has been working flawlessly for the last 3 years, and I have brewed about 3600 cups. The water leakage...

There are a lot of things that can cause the machine to leak.
You could have a fitting or tube that is broken.
You boiler could be leaking and needs to be replaced.
You could have a hose connection that has come loose.
You could have a bad seal at a connection.
Until you get inside you will not know? You might want to have someone look at it for you.
Scale is one of the major causes for machines to start leaking. Make sure that your water hardness is set on 4, so you descale more often than not enough, to prevent leakage in the boiler.

Quisnart DCC-2000 12 cup (leakage)

If the DCC-2000m is filled past the 12-cup mark, there is a spill gauge at the back that will allow the coffeemaker to keep the cup count exactly at 12 cups.
