Siemens Espresso machine TK54001 water leaking inside into the tray

My half a year old machine makes stronger coffee than it should, i.e. about half of the water doesn't come into the cup but runs to the tray inside the machine. Is it a question of descaling more often, or grinding less fine or is something out of place inside the machine. In the beginning the machine was working fine, and this problem appeared recently around the same time the machine notified to run the cleaning program (which I have to do about once a month). However the problem didn't disappear after cleaning the machine.

Check for a bad o-ring behind the removeable brew group where it attaches to the boiler. I have seen them go bad in as short as 1/2 year.

Oil is leaking from under the machine!!! (between cabinet and machine.. it is 5 years old & has made 12,198 coffees.. I cant live without it... HELP


OIL? There in NOT oil inside the machine.The only oils are from the beans (and is like a film, very little)
May be there is a water leak and the water looks like oil? Specially if the water is mixing with coffee grounds.
Try removing the brew group and look around inside the machine to see if there is any water.
Let me know.

Hi
When the machine is done brewing some water is relieved into the drip tray. This is the pressure relief. Some coffee residue is also taken into the drip tray. This is normal. As long as nothing is under the machine your OK.

HI
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.

My Bunn coffee pot leaks water theres always a puddle of water under the pot.coffee pot is over half full


It sounds like you have a broken seal/gasket. Please get the model and date code located on the bottom of the machine and call customer service. The machine has a 3 year warranty so if it is 3 years old or less, it will be replaced at no cost. If it is over 3 years old, it will be replaced at a discounted price.

EAM 3400 Internal Leak


Mine started leaking too. I took the machine apart and cleaned everything. (if your at all mechanically minded it is very, very simple to take apart). Still leaked. I ended up leaving the top off the water dispenser and the leaking water goes right back into it! Don't know if your leak is that "lucky". Just thought I would share.

No coffee will dispenses


Hi, We had a similar problem and it turns out the beans we were using were too oily and clogging up the works. We solved it by using a slightly more coarse grind (and brewing a stronger cup), and by buying only the best beans (oily beans don't make coffee stronger, just means they aren't good beans and by roasting longer can make the coffee taste stronger). Try Barefoot Coffee Roasters (I don't work for them, just love their coffee). We also use the cleaning tablet more often than prompted, and clean the inside of the flap when we dump the grinds. Good luck. Great coffee, but finicky machine!
