My espresso machine is leaking out the left side, ( pod ) even when the machine is off. I am very new to this stuff and was hoping that it would be an easy fix maybe I can do it myself. I wanted to now if this has happen to anyone. Thanks and keeping my fingers crossed because my fridge broke last night to!

What I've found to be the most common cause is that your drain line could be clogged, in which case it's a generally easy fix, depending on your bar layout. In this case you're going to want to turn off the water going to your machine, pull off the piping and hopefully you can just blow it out, but you may have to use a snake. Anyway, make sure all drain lines are clear. If this isn't the case, the best I can do for you is ask that you post the stats on your espresso machine (i.e. Make, Model, Year, Commercial or Non, etc.) and couple it with pictures and repost this with more info. Good Luck!
