Check if the cap has a gasket or o-ring and is not worn. There are two designs for this model. The older model has the fill cap and valve together. The new design the fill cap and valve are at different locations. The new design has no hole in the bottom of the unit.
You can fixed the problem using a 1-1/2 inch washer for brass tubular found in the plumbing isles in HD or L. The rubber washer is 1 or 2 mm smaller then the grooves in the fill/valve cap. You can stretch the washer and it will fit perfectly in the grooves. When putting the fill/valve cap back with the washer, it will be tighter then before. Firmly turn and you should not have any leaks and make sure unit is level. You can plug the hole because the new design does not have a hole in the bottom of the unit.

couple of screws on the bottom, but why take it all apart when you can probably run vinegar through it and let that do the work, smells a little, so maybe on the porch...

If water leakage occurs: • Check to be sure the tank cap is tightened properly. • Check the tank for leaks and replace if necessary.Check the water valve and water tank cap.If the valve or cap any of this is loose the water will leak. Fill the Water Tank with clean, cool, tap water and replace the Tank Cap by firmly turning clockwise. Turn the tank upright and check Tank Cap for leaks. If any water drips from Tank Cap, remove it and re-tighten. Make sure the circular rub cap Gasket (o-Ring) is in place when replacing Tank Cap - this prevents water leakage. ------------This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.
