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.
