Hi,
I just got this machine and was wondering if anyone else has this going on with their machine.
I get about 1/4 cup of water with a few coffee grounds in the drip tray after I've made my 2 cups in the AM.
Machine is clean (only had it a week) and I rinse out the brew group every day. It also seems like I get more water in the tray when I make a smaller cup full. Is this normal or do I have to call Saeco?

thanks

Hi momv630
   
   This is normal on all automatic espresso machines with a built in brew group.  The water you see is the pressure relieved when the machine cycles to empty the coffee puck in the dreg drawer after the coffee is brewed.  If you get water in the dreg drawer you have probably overtightened the thumbscrew in the brew group.  This is not normal, and will probably have to be replaced.  Don't use the key to tighten the thumbscrew.

Thanks for the help
