I have had my machine about 2 years and it has been very good to me now when I make a cup half goes into the cup the other half goes in to my grounds hopper and some comes out under the machine, any ideas?

Hello and welcome to CoffeeGeek.
Not many here use Super Auto machines. A common thing that needs replacement on the machines we do use, is the gasket on the group head. It requires replacement every 6 months to a year depending on use. When they get old, they leak.
I am guessing that the seal/gasket on the group head of your machine may need replacement. If it is leaking, I would guess that the results would be as you describe. I have never used one of those machines so I can't say for sure but it "seems" like the answer fits!
We do have a couple members who work on those machines and if you are lucky, one of them may see this post and be able to help you.
In real life, my name is Wayne P. Anything I post is personal opinion and is only worth as much as anyone else's personal opinion. YMMV!
Feed the newbs, starve the trolls and above all enjoy what you drink!
