Hi this is 2ndtimearound I didn't know how to update my comment. I
called Hamilton Beach and explained the problem again, the pot was a
replacement for the first one that was under warranty. Warranty's stay
with the first purchase they don't start another year, BUT they did
send me a new replacement part for the leaking one, not just a seal the
whole pot! I had just broken down and bought a different coffeemaker,
but will keep it in storage in case this one leaks as well. But I have
my machine back working, very happy. I really like the Hamilton Beach
47474 when it's not leaking coffee all over my countertops! Good luck,
when you call the calls are recorded and your concerns are written down
and reviewed. Take care

There are many places for the water to leak out the bottom on those. You are going to need to remove the covers and have a look. Is the water clean or is it part of your brew? In order of most likely to least likely
1) Barista seal at bottom of brew chamber
3) Tank seal
4) Tamping piston seals
5) Flexible hose or connection
6) Hydraulic Ram
7) Relief valve on end of pump
You are not going to figure it out with the covers on and you will have great difficulty running it with covers off to be certain where it is coming from but that is what most of those issues is going to require.
Most likely is that the seal between the water reservoir and the tank is leaking. Not uncommon. If you can find a replacement seal go for it, otherwise the old one can be made serviceable by coating both sides with a thin bead or layer of clear silicone. Allow to cure for 24 hours before powering the coffee maker back up.
The bottom of the urn is sealed with a bright yellow rubbery gasket. As the button is pressed inward by the cup, a sliding lever lifts a valve in the urn. That gasket sometimes splits or wears, or sometimes a grain of coffee gets trapped between it and the valve seat. First try turning the empty urn (only the urn) upside down over your sink and pressing on the little lever under the bottom, while running a strong stream of water directly at the opening. You'll have to experiment to find how to press. That may clear the obstruction. If that doesn't work, replace the gasket. Instructions are in your owners manual.
I bet it leaks from the back, right? If it does, it has the same problem as my dad's.
You have a leak in the back of the holding tank. Fill it up, turn it around, without plugging it in, and watch for the water leak. If it's in a spot that you can see, then use some caulking to seal the leak. That should work. If not, it is leaking out from inside the plastic holding tank. Not much you can do but buy a new one.
it's possible, like mine with the same problem, that one or more of the plastic feet under the water tank has broken, then making the tank move and upsetting the valve underneath. My one always leaks clean water, never dirty and I have a broken foot.
