I sell lots of new and used parts for various coffee machines, but specialize in Krups. If interested in purchasing a Krups brew head seal at a resaonable price, contact me at cowboy_romeo@yahoo.com and I'll make arrangements. I purchase the groups seals directly from Krups and they will arrive sealed in the manufacturer's original plastic packaging. I accept Paypal to make the transaction safe and secure for us both.

there are several places where this machine can leak. Check all the connecting hoses from the boiler , they are just clicked in by holder pins.
Even the seal in the boiler itself can be worn.

Oh by the way the seal on the spout which goes into your brew group can be damaged too. Check that first

SOURCE: Saeco talea touch - grinds & brews coffee into grounds drawer??

Try this, adjust the grind to a coarser setting atleast 2 numbers, then remove brew unit and look behind at white plastic valve, there is a small chamber under valve make sure chamber is clean and that the small discharge from chamber to drain tray is also clear. Then remove shower screen from brew unit and clean if necessary, also check the tube from the shower. Reinsert and test.

SOURCE: Gagggia Platinum Swing no longer makes coffee

It seems that the coffee solenoid valve is the problem. It does not open since the noise indicated that is damaged, so you will need a new solenoid valve. If you manage to reassembled it then you can try to remove the internal body with spring inside solenoid with this the valve will be always open and you will have continiues water from the group shower. If this happens than you are 100 % that the valve is the problem.
Good Luck

My Rancilio Silvia won't pump water out of the head all of a sudden. It had worked for years up to this point


It may be that the 'shower screen' which is a perforated metal disk filter that fits inside the head has reached its use by date.
These can be found and bought on E-bay for about $15 each, make sure you buy a genuine Rancilio replacement, while you are at it, replace the rubber 'group seal' - a rubber ring for pressure sealing the head/arm after filling the arm with grounds - these are a similar price. If you get leaks around the head while making a coffee, the seal is worn out.

My silvia is at least 8 years old and is serviced on a regular basis.


The 'group seal' in the underside of the head that the grounds arm compresses against probably needs replacing. If you unknowingly left a few grounds to dry on the underside of the seal the last time you used the machine, this can be enough to cause a leak the next time around.
If replacing the group seal, replace the 'shower screen' above it as well. Always buy genuine Rancilio parts, you should be able to find both for around $10 - $15 each on Ebay.
There are videos on either You-Tube or Gooble that show how to replace these parts on the Silvia.
Always try to ensure the seal face is cleaned before and after use and the group seal will last longer, but they are actually meant to be replaced whenever necessary, they are not designed to last forever.

When brewing with the X1, water starts leaking from the underside of the top where the brass filter holder connects to the machine. Tightening the 4 nuts did not help.


HI
More than likley its your brew head gasket that is leaking. Take off the 4 nuts you hust tighten and it exposes the brew head gasket. Make sure that you put the chrome piece on the same way you took it off. Clean the head good before you put the new gasket on or you could have trouble.
I would check ebay.

I own a Breville 800ESXLespresso machine which i already decalcified, that leaks from brew head and handle moves while brewing


If you've had the machine for a while, your brew head seal (gasket) is probably damaged or shrunken from age/heat and needs to be replaced. That's most likely why the filter holder moves and leaks while brewing. Breville brew head seals are rather difficult to locate, but I personally stock them and sell them at a reasonable cost. I sell lots of new and used parts for various coffee machines, but specialize in Krups. If interested in purchasing a Breville brew head seal, contact me at cowboy_romeo@yahoo.com and I'll make arrangements. I accept Paypal to make the transaction safe and secure for us both.

Saeco Odea Go - Hot water leaks from bottom of machine


That's leaking from the hoses coming out from the boiler,if the machine is new it should be still under warranty, may have to take it back to the service center.When making coffee the lines are under pressure and the water never have a chance to pass through the ground coffee.

Rancilio Silvia leaks around group head. Gasket seems fine.


HI
You need to change the group head gasket. They only last about 1 year and then should be changed. Get 2 because they usually fail on Friday and you have a party on Saturday.
The gaskets get hard from the heat and don't form to the filter any more so they leak.
When you get the new gasket.
Empty everything out of the machine (water tank, drip tray, etc.) Turn the machine upside down on a towel. This way you can see what your are doing.
Remove the filter screen and diffuser from the brew head. The black O-ring is your gasket. Carefully pry it out. Clean the opening good before you install the new gasket. Insert the gasket with the beveled side down (on the inside edge of the O-ring is the bevel). Once you have the gasket in place, use the portafilter to finish seating the gasket.

Leaky head and quick shots


Have a look at the seal for the group handle. I have a different machine but this may of hardened and cracked. I'm sure you can get a replacement, may be hard to remove if it's gone very hard.

When I make coffee, there is water leaking probably from the drain, even after I changed the seals with new ones.
