Get a new seal and apply some Vaseline to help seal it . When putting tank on, nestle it in place and then tighten the tanks bolts to the bowl evenly and securely . The rubber washers should compress some to make it snug.

Sunbeam sul2512 humidifier leaking.

The Sunbeam SUL2512 Humidifier has three parts. From the top down:
Water tank
mist collar
Base unit

If the cap of the water tank (which contains a float valve) does not seal you may get excessive flow into the base unit which provides a working reservoir.

The base unit contains all the electronics including the cool mist transducer. This is a silver disk with a black silicone seal surrounding it. This is the only other place a leak can develop.

Have air innovations humidifier model #WS30U-09A. It is leaking from the base of unit where water tank seats. Any hint as to why

The water source (tank or bottle) sits tight on the platform and there is a plastic form known as a seal to prevent leakage. You need to replace the seal.

I have a massive leak where the tank joins the bowl assembly. so i guess i need a new gasket,,,,yes?

Yes you will need to replace the old gasket to prevent leakage, and when you put the new seal between the tank and base be sure to level the tank using a level and do not over tighten the bolts that hold the tank to the base.
I would also use a little silicone on the bolt heads that are inside of the tank to help prevent leaks from there also.

My two part gas tank leaks what do i use to seal it with

If the tanks are plastic, the best fix is to replace them. Most epoxies, silicon, and other glue bases don't bond well with plastic and the vibration of the running saw doesn't help the repair either. Hope this helps!

Iron leaks water from the back end of the base

This problem is the way that rowenta seals the water tank. If the iron is disassembled and the seal is properly put on it will not leak,, however this seal is a silicone based product and not just an off the shelf gasket. I have sealed and repaired some using a high temp silicone
