Leaking out the sides when I turn the tank over and place onto the base. It appears to fit correctly and doesn't move, but all of the water immediately leaks out of the sides. Why is it doing this and how do I fix it?

The humidifier has just started leaking from underneath the trunk part and drips down the front side and pools quite a bit underneath the humidifier causing quite a wet mess. This just started after I ordered a replacement water tank. Any suggestions?
Turn the unit off and disconnect from the electrical outlet. 2. Remove the tank from the housing. 3. Unlock the housing from the base by turning the lock knob to the unlocked position. 4. Lift the housing straight up and place to the side. 5. Unlock the wick holder from the base by turning the lock knob to the unlocked position. 6. Remove the wicks from the wick holder. 7. Follow the weekly cleaning instructions. 8. Insert new filters into the wick holder and lock the wick holder back onto the base. 9. Replace the housing onto the base and lock it into place. 10. Fill the tank and place back into housing. 11. Repeat Operating Instructions. It will take about 30 minutes for the humidifier to reach
Found a hairline crack in the water canister. Had to locate by filling the canister and waiting for a couple of minutes for water droplets to form outside the canister. This ever so slight crack allowed air to enter the chamber and made changes to water dispensing rate which overfilled the resevoir over time ( hours). The cracks were not visible under 10X magnification without the water droplets.
FILLING THE WATER TANKS
1. Before filling the water tanks, push the POWER switch to the “OFF” position and
unplug unit. Refer to cleaning instructions.
2. Remove water tanks from base, turn each tank upside down and remove tank cap
by turning counterclockwise. Fill tank with clean cold tap water.
Replace the tank cap by turning clockwise. Tighten firmly.
3. Carefully pick up tank, since it will be heavy when full, and slippery if wet.
4. Place water tanks on base. Make sure tanks are properly placed, otherwise, the
humidifier will not work correctly.
well since you just purchased this item, you should be able to return it for exchange, and it should still be under warranty, but if thats not doable, then it sounds to me like its a O-ring that is bad if the tanks are removable, best bet though is to exchange it, look at your home owners paperwork, to see about the warranty, more than likely your covered, hope that helped, mr.grzz
Try to just fill the tank with water and set it upright on a table. If it leaks, the tank is cracked and needs to be replaced. Order one at kaz.com (search using model#). I have had this tank leak if the special cap is not sitting properly on the base. Make sure that the steam tower is properly locked in place before you place the water tank in the reservoir. The cap on the tank has a spring release that has to be correctly lined up so it only releases water when the water level in the reservoir drops.
My Air-O-Swiss U7142 has a leak from the very bottom. I found that as long as the water flows on to the "pan" that evaporizes the water, the water will come out from the bottom. Does anybody know how to fix this?
