Question about Saeco Aroma Espresso Machine
Our Saeco Aroma is a year and a half and it always worked very well. @ weeks ago the steam nozzle started leaking. It still makes great coffee but there is water all over the kitchen counter. The machine was descaled 5 weeks ago. Thanks
Hi! hope i'm not too late, since this leaking problem occur's quite often, specially when one's tends to overtight the valve, the proposed solutios will certainly help thousand of happy Saeco owners.
Anyway i happened to live with it but after a second valve replacement, i got fed up with filling too often the reservoir and fixed it at Zero cost. What i did is realy easy:
1- Find a bearing the size of the plunger of the needle valve; the thiny steel ball in a nail polish bottle is what i used.
2- When the electric cord is pulled off the wall outlet, take the cover off, reach to the snap locker and pull it off.
3- Unscrew the needle valve plunger off the cylinder, grind or file the
tip 3/16 of an inch, making sure it is at rite angle cut.
4- Insert the ball in the valve body and push it with the flattened tip
over the vapor down stream and screw. You now have a new valve that will outlast your coffe maker.

If the valve leaks, remove the top, locate the snap ring of the valve stem and remove it then unscrew the valve completely and examine the tip. If it's worn out with a deep circular groove you may need a new valve, but try to resurface it first. That worked for me. And yes, there are one or two o-rings you may need to replace.

Actually in another thread for another Saeco machine mirran suggested a procedure for changing the gaskets only and not the entire valve. So on the Aroma, the ENTIRE valve must be changed? Thanks!

I think you have to replace the steam valve in your machine.
