Has anyone with an Isomac (Relax,or other) had water getting behind the drip tray when exiting from the 3-way valve port? I continually am getting water behind the tray. I have verified that the unit sits level on the counter. Furthermore, I have the feet of my machine in plastic caps made for the bottoms of outdoor furniture. This makes it easy to side back and forth to fill water resevoir without scratching counters. I have placed some nickels in the back caps, under the feet in order to try to raise the back, but has not worked. Any ideas would be greatly welcomed?
My problem is that the port does not release water on to the top, but actually dispenses water into the back wall of drip tray on the Relax. There are two "tubes" coming from the body that enter holes in the back of the tray. As the water flow diminshes, water runs between the outer wall of the tray and the body. At this point, I am thinking that some plastic tubing extension may help.

Daktarz solution above works on the Rituale. On the Relax, which is totally different in that the exit tube is behind the drip tray not over it, you can thread a short piece of pipe to ensure the water drips into the tray rather than between the tray and the machine. Search this forum; I know someone did it and posted a pic. Perhaps it was JonR10...
