Water leaking from uderneath machine, how can it be fixed?

    A tailored version of my complaints to Gaggia for this horribly temperemental and un-reccommendable machine - 

    This photo shows some sort of repair on a melted wire which seems to  have melted again.
    Water also leaks from the bottom.
    There was nothing wrong with the seal. I have replaced it anyway.

    We don't feel it is reasonable to have a machine that is 14 months old, that has been back to Gaggia twice, the second time costing £70 for a de-scale, go wrong yet again - it seems on two accounts.
    It is now back for a third time.

    Between two de-scales we made perhaps 5 or 10 cups of coffee at the most. We were away for 2 months in the summer. How can that be? It does not seem reasonable.

    I would like to know what the insulating tape is doing inside this machine and why it has melted, a potentially dangerous situation. Also when was this done? If this was the last "de-scale" then why did we pay £70? But as we hardly used this machine between May and September, I would think this was done the first time it came in to you - still well within warrantee in May 08.
    Was this the cause of the second break-down also?

    I should also mention that this machine has tripped out (fused RCD / RCCB) the whole house / floor circuit 4 times since it came back  from the second de-scale. We probably didn't use it enough after the first descale to find out the problem.

It is very hard to say where the leak is coming from. If you can open the case of the machine a physically notice where the water is leaking from then we can tell you if you can repair it yourself or if you will have to find a service center.

Whirlpool LSR8010PQ0 motor hums and leaks water

Somethnig is wrong with your transmission. Since it is leaking, the seals are broken or damaged. The water leaked in your transmission. The problem with Whirlpool washing machines, the motor is directly coupled with the transmission. There is a high probability that the leaking water corroded the transmission, thereby freezing it. Your best bet is to have the transmission and the water leak fixed. Do not run the washing machine till you have this fixed, otherwise, you face the chance of losing your motor.

My Gaggia Synchrony is leaking - If I remove the water catch basis, I can see a drip. We have used this machine every day for years - can the problem be fixed easily?

There is a panel behind the brew unit, that has 2 screws. Remove it and clean the coffee residue behind it. That is what drains the pressure relieved after brewing, and has coffee residue that can build up and cause the leak. It should leak into the drip tray though, except when you rremove it.
