Question about Philips Senseo HD-7810 Coffee Maker

3 Answers

My senseo is leaking water more than brewing coffee

Water comes out of the back of the maching leaking both back into the resavoir and onto the counter resulting in a mess and about 1/3 of a serving coffee. I washed the removable parts, tried the other pod holder, and inspected the "shower head" for clogs. Still the same result.
Incedentally I had no problems until I started using the cappucino pods made for the machine.
I discarded the instruction manual so I would appreciate any troubleshooting advice you may be able to offer, even that information which is listed in the manual.

    I, too, have this problem now and then -- By experimentation, I found if you load the pods with the "Senseo" name up (the "flat side), it seems to alleviate much of the leaking. It is also important to line the pads up exactly in the middle of the holder. Anyone else have any ideas??

    The water flows through the channel but does not flow into the cup,instead it floods the unit and the counter top .What is causing this problem?

    I am having a leaking problem also. I have cleaned and checked the placement of the pods and still I get more water on the counter top than coffee in the cup.

    mijn senseo lekt zowel aan de boven kant water als aan de onderkant als ik een lekker bakie koffie wil is hij nog niet eens voor de helft gevuld met koffie en je moet uitkijken dat je je vingers niet verbrand door het warme water want het komt er aan de boven kant uit ipv via het trechter systeem

The leaking out onto the counter is coming from the reservoir. I had the same problem and was about to throw my Senseo out. Here's how to fix it.
When you put the reservoir back onto the Senseo the bottom fits into a hole that is surrounded by a rubber seal. The seal appears to be attached to the bottom side of the plastic shelf that the reservoir sits on. The problem is that the seal has pulled partly away from the plastic surface to which it is attached allowing water to leak onto the counter. Put a little glob of clear silicone sealer (like you use around glass) onto the end of your little finger and work that along the upper edge of the seal where it meets the plastic shelf. You want to be sure you go all the way around and that you squeeze the sealant into the crack between the seal and the plastic. When you're finished, wipe off any excess and make sure that the inside edge of the seal (that fits around the nozzle from the reservoir) is free of any excess silicone. Let it dry for a day and you're ready to go. I did mine and it works great now. No more leaks.

I was having the same problem and it appeared that the water reservior was leaking. When I disassembled the unit, I found that a flexible rubber tube that runs between the top of the unit and the back of the unit actually had a tear in it. I am going to the hardware store today to purchase a replacement tube and zip tie clamp fasteners. I'm guessing this will be a $5 fix. I'll check back in once it's completed.

Here's a link to the senseo repair manual that give instructions on how to take the unit apart and also lists replacement parts. FYI!

We have found that when this happens it is because it is not
closed properly, so it is not creating a tight seal needed to pour out the coffee. I have been shown to close the coffee maker
with both hands on either side of the top of the lid and push the lever down with both thumbs. Only after making sure the pod or
pods are evenly distributed in the holder [sometimes better if done while not in the machine] and also making sure top is lined up evenly with bottom [and you are not forcing it closed] only firmly closing it
. I have also found with espresso pods we have to put them in the espresso pod holder out of the machine and pour a bit of hot water over the pod first, that we have poured out of the cup after running one cup out of the machine to warm the cup.

Saeco Vienna machine...after brewing a couple of cups of coffee, water leaks from somewhere and comes out underneath the front grilled tray and onto the counter. Can I do the repair with the proper parts?


Depending on your ability to do some technical and minutious manual work, unmounting and remounting the machine is feasable.

Concerning the leaking, what I've seen most is a leak from the seal under the water tank. Any leaks coming form there would occur even though no coffee would be dispensed. (i.e: Idle mode)

If leak is ONLY occurring when brewing cofee, I would check the following:

1- Check if the water inlet on the back of the brew unit is filled with residue (the inlet looks like the end of a smoke pipe)

2-Open the machine, take out the interior, and verify the water tubes coming in and out of the boiler. They both should be sealed with 2 small o-rings. After time, o-ring tend to expand under heat and may start to leak.

Hope this helps

With vehicle park and running,make sure coolant is full and place cardboard under the front. look to see where the water is pooling then you can start to figure where its coming from. the radiator, a hose or the engine.

2002 Yukon 5.3L Heater core hose quick connect leaking. The quick connect confused mess of plastic lego parts is leaking right where it push locks onto the core fitting coming out of the firewall. It's...


Actually, those connectors were a mistake, courtesy of General Motors. A simple fix is to get rid of the plastic connector. Ok....where your two pipes come out of the heater core at the firewall...sometimes they are so brittle, they will come out with relative ease. Sometimes you need to break them off in pieces, so that all you have is metal pipe sticking out. That stub out is 3/4in. if memory serves. Which ever size it is, measure it and go to Home depot or your hardware store, plumbing section. Get a brass nipple. Say its 3/4s....get the nipple with threads on one end, smooth pipe on the other. The whole thing is about three inches long. believe it or not, that nipple will thread it self into your metal stub out coming out of your heater core like it was made for it. If it makes you feel better, swab your threads with water-pump RTV silicone gasket maker, or equivalent, then, with your water-pump pliers, line it up square, and thread it in slowly. It will fit like a glove! This retro-fit is so popular, a lot of auto parts stores actually keep these "nipples" behind the counter for just such an occasion. I did the same thing on a 1999 1/2 chevy 4x4. That was 8 years ago....and its still in there today.

My DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM23210 coffee machine is leaking water from the back.


I received the exact same machine for Christmas yesterday and had the exact same problem! I took it back to Williams Sonoma today and exchanged it for another one and I just started it up and have the SAME problem! Water comes out the bottom onto the counter - never even makes it up through the machine. This must be a batch of lemons - I guess I'll call Delonghi tomorrow.

My DGB-500 Cuisinart Grind & Brew coffee maker leaks coffee


I found out that internally the water line that comes off of the heating element is made of a rubber/silicon material. The heating element is so hot that it scorches or dryrots the tube and it cracks causeing leaking. Sometimes it comes pouring out and other times it just is enough to make it a pain. I have taken the time to get my specialized screwdriver set and take off the bottom of the pot, but have not been able to find a replacement tube for it. (They also made the tube so that you dont have enough to cut the broken end off and put it back on and if you COULD do it, they also put an "X" in the original tube so if you cut it and try to put it on you cannot push it on far enough. Other than this, it was a great coffee brewer for me for the past four years. (Put baking soda and water paste on the coffee stain if you have formica counters. A few times of doing that and the stain will come clean)

Fridgaire washer is leaking water about 1/2 gallon of water


If you take off the front panel in the VERY back you will see a hose, that hose has seemed to have come disconnected, there is a valve back there that is just slips onto. This will stop your water leak
