Little Green Portable Machine- Leaking out the Bottom

My Little Green Portable Machine is leaking from the bottom. How can I correct this?

ANSWER:  Please try the following suggestions to get your machine to function properly:

- Check to see if the black or white duck bill gasket is misassembled or missing from the collection tank; ensure the gasket will open where the flat flaps meet and then reinstall it. The duck bill should be inserted into the curved side of the collection tank.

- Check to see if the solution tank/cap insert is leaking. Note: When the solution tank is filled and turned right side up, the straw on the insert may fill with water/solution causing the tank to leak for a couple of seconds. This leaking should subside after the straw empties out.

- Check for proper placement of the o-ring on the cap insert. The o-ring should be between the bottle and the insert piece (part with the "straw").
