Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Where water is going from the tank to the drip tray when the appliance is switched off this suggests a siphon action so you need to remove the hoses to find out what is causing the siphon action. In reality the appliance will need stripped fully down to locate the cause, but from what I can see this isn't an issue with a non return valve.
