You need to unscrew 4 screws in the front, three on the top (underneath the lid where you put the cleaning tablet), one inside the coffe container at the top, and pull gently, but firmly the little black nob inside the coffe container, that you use to adjust the coffee grinding, straight up. Then you can remove the coffee container on the top, and unscrew one screw underneath this container. Also, remove the two screws from the holes beneath the water container. NOW, you should be able to pull the front electronics off, and pull the main cover backwards, away from the front panel. You may have to bend it a little to get it completely off, but it is not a problem. Good luck! :)

check this out i think it should have a pipe that feeds this water into a container on top of the motor where the heat of the motor evaporates it away ,could be you havent seen it or a mouse has eaten it or the pipe has just perished with age and fallen off ,pull it out and have a good look and i do feel you see what i mean

I have the same model, same age, same problem. It appears to be the seal between the metal heating coils, and the plastic switch that selects steam or coffee. Possibly caused by no cleaning the injector hole with the tool provided with machine (which causes a lot of back pressure). On mine, the screw that holds the switch to the heater has corroded and can not be unscrewed, so not possible to access rubber seal, and repair. May be tricky since this is plastic sealed to hot metal with a rubber gasket. So fo now, i unscrewed the black base plate on the bootom, and set the Alessi in a tray. THen just wipe up water after use.
