To replace steam-wand seals (in case of water leaking out from the center of the steam-wand): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fulyy9A9... , but note - for parts: https://philips.encompass.com/model/SAER... (worth going to amazon.de and entering the partnumbers into the search box: e.g. the o-rings for the needle-valve (996530013462)

I have a machine where the steam wand was leaking.

It just needed the cam on the steam valve to be adjusted, so that the valve could be closed, before the cam hits the stop.
