Question about Saeco Vacuums
Hi, looking down into the brew group you see the bottom filter, looking on the side with the piston (o-ring) you see the second metal filter on the bottom of the piston.

Hello, sorry to hear about your problem.
Have you tried reseating the water tank. Breville are aware of this problem. After some research and given that you have already cleaned the coffee maker, try reseating the water tank. Give it a good wiggle and make sure it is flush against the unit by pressing it in. I don't have your specific model number so I don't know where the microswitch is situated but essentially if there is one it needs to be made by the tank.
Short of this Breville should be very understanding about the defect as it is very very common and after a year I think its not a bad prospect to ring them, complain and express your disappointment. Quote statutory rights at them too, as it is not unreasonable for one to expect a coffee maker to last in excess of 2 years, especially given the reputation of Breville!
Just because it is out of warranty doesn't mean they are unaccountable!
Hope this helps and good luck.

SOURCE: I have a new Saeco
You said you lined up the brew group and it sealed when you installed it. Did you by any chance press the "push" button as you were inserting it. This will unlock it. It will look as if it's in place, but is not "locked in".
I hope this helps.

SUGGESTED CLEANING SCHEDULE
Type of Water Cleaning Frequency
Soft water every 80 brew cycles, Hard water every 40 brew cycles
Your espresso maker may be delimed using one quart of white household vinegar. Clean the water tank first, following steps l-5:
1. Make sure the steam control knob is in the center off position and that the plug is disconnected from the electrical outlet.
2. If the machine is cool and the pressure has been released, remove the pressure cap and pour 10 ounces of undiluted white household vinegar into the water tank.
3. Screw on the pressure cap and allow machine to sit overnight with the vinegar solution in the water tank.
4. Remove pressure cap and discard vinegar through the top opening of the espresso maker.
5. Rinse the water tank thoroughly with tap water, repeating this step twice.
To wash internal parts:
Make sure you clean the inside of the water tank first. Remove the pressure cap and pour 10 ounces of fresh white household vinegar into the water tank. Screw the pressure cap back on top of the water tank. Make sure the cap is on tight. Insert the filter holder into the brew head and place the glass decanter with lid on the drip tray. Plug the machine into the electrical outlet and turn the power switch on. An indicator light on the power switch will tell you the machine is on. Place a cup with cold water under the steam nozzle. When vinegar begins to flow into the decanter, insert the nozzle into the water and open the steam nozzle slowly by turning the steam control knob downward. After a few seconds, close the steam nozzle by turning the knob back up to center. This will clean any residue left in the nozzle from frothing milk. When all the vinegar has been pumped into the decanter and the flow has stopped, turn the power switch to the center off position and allow the machine to cool. Repeat steps 1-7 twice using only tap water to rinse any remaining traces of vinegar out of the machine.
1. Pour warm white vinegar in the decanter and let soak for 20 minutes.
2. Discard the vinegar, Wash and rinse the decanter thoroughly using a
soft cloth. Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners.
