A black plastic or rubber piece on the lower left end of the tank that appears to the part that lets the machine know the water tank is empty has algae or something dark around and inside of it. When I inspect the water, I often see some tiny particles floating around, which I suspect came from this area. Is this a defect? I can't seem to detach the black piece, or clean out the substance. Thank you. The machine is a Saeco Incanto Deluxe. Thank you.

There is a float switch in the water tank which is most likely sticking in the downward position. Take out the tank, at the back left you'll see a red piece of plastic. This is the float switch, jiggle it up and down and couple of times and ensure it moves freely, then fill the tank with water and check that the switch rises up with the water level. If this doent solve it, let us know.
Using filter water of course helps keep things clean and so forth. To help solve this algae problem when you descale and clean machine use vinegar and that should help from algae building up. Thanks Mike
iana, if possible take it back to the store and ask for your money back, buy a Breville instead. If your stuck with it here's the solution. I just returned this similar machine that we received as a gift one year ago for warranty, got a bran new machine Jan. 13 as replacement and it would not pump water. After three phone calls to warranty office in Ontario, the problem was solved by pressurizing the water inlet on lower back with air comprssor set at 40 lbs psi and a piece of plastic polethylene tubing that fit inside the hole using water in the tubing and rubber tipped air nozzle on the top end. This solved the problem and now it works.
I've got the same problem and I managed to solve it. So you have to put the plastic stopper to the buttom of the water tank in way that the wider end is down. You must hang the spring on the plastic stoppers narrow end so it would be placed between the water tanks bottom and the plastic stopper. Then you have to place the rubber washer from inside the water tank on the plastic stoppers narrow end. So would look like the following: plastic stopper -> spring -> water tank -> rubber washer
The easy fix for leaking under the machine is check to see if the drain is clogged. Open the front and remove the brew unit. You will see a small hole that will drain the excess into the Plastic tray. Usualy I find Coffee grounds clogging the drain hole. Use Pipe Cleaner , Q-Tip to clear the drain hole. you can also wipe out from the other side with paper towel or Q-tips. once the clog is clear. Flush our with water.
Try cleaning the inside where the discs go. There is a sensor underneath the clear plastic part which reads the barcodes on the discs. Make sure it is clean. Have you tried using the cleaning disc? Also if you remove the parts underneath where the discs go you can clean them too. Sometimes stuff will get stuck inside the plastic piece which leads from the disc to the cup... Just a couple suggestions...
