Water leaks from brew head when powered on

My Starbucks Barista drips water from the brew head when the machine is turned on and stops when the ready light turns green. I have stretched out the spring and replaced it but it still drips. What else could the problem be? Do I need to replace the group head gasket? Should I replace the tension spring?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

If it only drips a little and stops once the machine is up to temp this is nothing to worry about, as well as any dripping heating up to steam temp. If it drips excessively and/or doesn't stop then you could try replacing the silicone nipple on the end of the spring, or the spring itself, but the group head gasket plays no role in this.
