Try this from another post. It should help.
The steam wand began to seriously leak but a call to Starbucks Customer Service line and I was talked through how to adjust it so that the leaking stopped. It requires taking off the top/back panel of the machine (6 philips screws) then using a small allen key (1.5 mm I believe) to loosen and adjust a plastic oblong donut-shaped thing (a "cam" actually) on the shaft of the steam knob... no more drips.
The key to prevent dripping is to open the steam knob without putting pressure on it when it gets to the full-open stop position. Cranking it too hard when it comes to a stop in the full-open position will slowly move the cam out of position. Then the shaft doesn't fully seat inside the machine anymore and won't fully shut off the water to the steam wand. Then, no matter how hard you crank the knob in the shut-off position it will still drip. The purpose of the cam is to stop the knob from complete unscrewing and it also turns the pump on and off for the steam wand. The cam adjustment is very small but completely solves the dripping problem. Seeing inside the machine made me realize how easy it would be to repair problems as long as I can get the parts from Starbucks or perhaps Saeco.

There is a part that the hose connects to and it is made of plastic. The plastic on mine had a tiny split in, which caused it to leak. I got a replacement one made of brass and that problem is fixed. Now my machine is broken in another way and I am hoping to get it fixed. What a piece of junk!!!

I have the same problem with the boiler leaking, and I'm also guilty of not descaling nearly enough. Anyway, I've already replaced the machine, but I just can't bring myself to throw away this otherwise great machine. I've ordered a boiler repair kit and I want to attempt a fix on my own (don't want to spend too much money). I have the machine opened up, but I'm not sure how to remove the boiler. Do you have directions?

I just fixed a leak caused by a worn o ring in the body of the steam dispenser control. It was pretty much spraying water inside the machine and shorting the circut. It took a couple of hours to work out, but in the end only cost me 50c to fix.
