Hi,

I just got my rocket today and was setting it up.  So I fill the tank with water and then drop it in the back.  Then I realize water is leaking from the bottom.  Anyone can help me?

Does the water tank leak before putting it back into the machine? Are you sure the reservoir is sitting correctly on the connection flange.

Just got my Cellini today from Seattle Coffee Gear.  Set it up and water immediately started dripping from the bottom of the machine.  Switched it on, and as it started to heat up, water started pouring out the bottom.  It's not leaking from where the tank fits into the receptacle.  I can't imagine that it's anything other than something broken/holed inside the machine.

one of the hose probably came off from shipping.  Open it up and take a look

There's a breather tube connected to the cup that the reservoir sits in.  It is supposed to be running up to the top of the machine and is held in place through a hole in that bracket next to the stainless steel box that holds the reservoir.
If that breather tube has fallen out of its support, then the reservoir will drain out through it.   You can just push it back up into the bracket with finger and thumb.

If that breather hose is not the problem, you're going to have to see where the water is getting out.  The hard, clear, plastic inline filter could have gotten cracked in shipping. You'll see the filter down at floor level in the hose that runs from your reservoir-receiver to the pump inlet. If that's leaking, contact the seller about sending you a replacement (Or buy one locally, they can't cost more than $5, even with the ridiculous mark-up that retailers dream up).

Lastly, if it's not either of those, it should be easy to find. just watch for where the water is getting out.
