Yup. Mine too. My CC1 is on timer to be turned on in the morning and afternoon. I did swivel the steam arm over the drip tray so if it leaks it leaks to the drip tray. I haven't notice the leak lately though. I did emailed SCG and they said it's normal. It once left a puddle of water on the counter. I'll check this morning if it still leaks.

A couple oz of water on the counter is no big deal but I have heard reports from some Seaco users that leaking wand caused the machine to have insufficient brew pressure.  So far it doesn't seem CC1 suffers from this.  

I tried it again, as soon as I turned on the machine, the steam wand started to leak.  I then turned to the steam feature, when that's ready, I purged some steam and it stopped leaking.

Mine does it too...i just emailed SCG and got the same response that it is normal for espresso machines to do this.

I only notice mine drips (a drop or two every 4-6 minutes) after I have made a latte or two and leave the machine on for another hour to make some drinks later in the day...but from start up to my first latte (whether that is 10 minutes or an hour) I don't get any drips.

I will probably give SCG a call later today just so they are aware.  I am pretty the leaky steam wand is no big deal.  

Do you feel the portafilter on your CC1 is extremely hard to lock in (too tight, need to apply great force to turn)?  Mine is very hard to lock in.  Not sure if this is normal or what.  Probably will ask SCG when I talk to them, but just want to get a sense of what other users are experiencing.

I don't find that to be the case at all, after pulling a month worth of shots. I was almost wondering if it had gotten too easy, but there isn't any sign that the gasket is bad like sprays or anything.

Btw, check the machine today, no sign of leakage. This is currently on the 3rd week. Maybe the leakage gone after 2 weeks+ (i'm making on avergae 3-4 latte a day.

as for portafilter, it's not hard to lock on mine. Mine locked in nice and tight (the handle looks like between 6-5 o'clock).

My steam wand has not leaked in the past 2 days.  I haven't changed anything.  Not sure what's going on here.

as for the PF, it's extremely hard to lock on mine.  I can usually only get it to go in to 8 oclock or 7.5 o'clock (if you think of 6 as being the perfect center, and 3 o'clock as locking it in all the way).  Maybe I will use it for a little more and see if it will ease up.  I think the PF was easier when I first got the machine.

Yes, i did not change anything as well. The leak just stop by itself :)

Did you use stock filter basket? have you tried bottomless vs. regular portafilter if that makes any different. When I still using gaggia, I have similar problem when using filter basket from espresso part vs the stock.

Yeah, I am using the stock basket.  The naked PF is slightly looser than the dressed PF, but not by much.  Without the basket, I can move both PFs slightly past midway.

Why such a concern about how far the portafilter rotates?  As long as no water leaks out from around the pf when you pull the shot, it is in tight enough.  My pf is plenty tight around the 6:30 position, and can only go past that point if there is no basket in it.

Edit: oh wait I just reread your posts.  8:00 or 7:30 is indeed fairly odd.  When I first insert my pf it is at about 7:30 before I even start to lock it in.
