Troubleshooting

My Philips/Saeco espresso machine is leaking

There can be multiple causes for there being water under your Philips/Saeco espresso machine. It does not necessarily indicate a technical default. Find out more.

What colour is the water under the machine?

  • If the water under the machine is clear, brownish or contains coffee parts, there can be multiple causes. See all possible causes and solutions in the video or detailed information below.

  • If there is a lot of clear water under the machine, Please contact our Consumer Care Centre for help, as the machine might need service.

Note: The support movie is applicable for all Full Automatic Espresso machines, not only the mentioned models.

Cause 1: The drip tray is full and has overflown

Always empty the drip tray in time.

There are two drip trays: one under the dispensing spout and one behind the service door. To prevent the drip trays from overflowing during brewing:

  • Empty the internal drip tray when the message “EMPTY DRIP TRAY” is displayed (optional)
  • Empty the external drip tray when the 'drip tray full indicator' pops up through the drip tray cover
  • Before you start descaling the machine, make sure that the drip trays are empty
  • Make sure that the machine is placed on a horizontal surface

Cause 2: The drip tray was removed during use

If the drip tray is removed, it can no longer collect the water drops that fall from the brew group. This is normal behaviour. Dry the space under the machine.

Cause 3: The brew group or coffee residue drawer is clogged

Clean the brew group and the coffee residue drawer

  1. Switch the machine OFF and wait until you no longer hear a sound (this can take up to 15-20 seconds)
  2. Remove the brew group and rinse it with fresh water, paying particular attention to the filter on the brew group
  3. Clean the area under the brew group with a damp cloth
  4. Replace the brew group, coffee grounds container, drip tray and close the service door
  5. Switch the machine back ON
