Cause 1: The drip-tray is full and overflown

If you see water in the drip tray do not worry. This is water from the self-rinsing cycles made by the machine during use, which ends up directly in the drip tray.

To prevent the drip tray from overflowing:

  • Empty the drip tray when the 'drip tray full indicator’ pops up through the drip tray cover
  • Fully insert the water tank, push it to the back as far as possible. Only counts for models as; Xelsis, Xsmall, Moltio, Phillips 2000 and Philips 21000
  • Before you start descaling the machine, make sure that the drip trays are empty
  • Place the machine on a horizontal surface

Cause 2: The drip tray is removed during use

If the drip tray is removed, it cannot collect anymore the water drops that fall from the brew group. This is normal behavior. 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 hear no more sounds (this can take up to 15-20 seconds)
  2. Remove the brew group and rinse it with fresh water, especially the filter on the brew group
  3. Remove the residue drawer and rinse it with fresh water
  4. Clean the area under the brew group with a damp cloth
  5. Place back the residue drawer, brew group, coffee grounds container, and drip tray
  6. Close the service door
  7. Switch the machine back ON

Cause 4: Lot's of clear water under the machine

The water tank is not fully inserted, make sure you push it to the back as far as possible.
This counts for models with a water tank at the front; Xelsis, Xsmall, Moltio, Phillips 2000 and Philips 21000

If this does not solve the problem, please contact our Consumer Care Center to help you out as the machine might need service.

Cause 5: Coffee or water is leaking behind the coffee spout

If you have a removable coffee spout, make sure it is placed in the correct position. Push the coffee spout a bit more towards the machine, this might help to solve the problem.

If the coffee spout on your machine is not removable, please contact the Consumer Care as the machine needs service.
