Water flowing through the coffee machine

When the coffee machine starts to leak water, it is important to determine the cause of the leak before continuing to use the coffee machine. There are several possible reasons why water may be leaking from the coffee machine without stopping. One of them could be that the filter basket is clogged or blocked and prevents water from flowing. Another reason could be that the rubber gasket on the coffee brewing head has worn out over time and needs to be replaced. Finally, the valve or switch controlling the water flow may be stuck in the on position and needs adjustment.

The bottom of the coffee machine must be checked for limescale deposits. Lime deposits can clog nozzles and hoses, causing pressure to build up and cause water to leak out of the coffee machine head. To remove limescale, you must remove the limescale from the coffee machine as soon as possible.

You should also check nozzles and hoses for blockages. Clogged hoses can also cause water to leak from the machine head, so make sure to clean them regularly.

Finally, if the coffee machine is leaking despite these checks, it could be due to a worn seal in the head of the machine. In this case, you will need to replace the seal or contact a specialist.

By taking the following steps to identify the cause of the leak in your coffee machine, you can prevent further damage and prolong the life of your machine. To ensure safe and efficient beverage preparation, be sure to regularly check all parts of your coffee machine for limescale, blockages and worn seals.
