well you say it is dripping from bottom? And have you had any other problems with unit? does it come on fast &shutt off fast as well?

Expert:  duane replied 10 months ago.

the small red square shaped button on bottom /on some models it is on the side. but if you turn off switch and re set the button then if it hums try to clear jamb..from hopper .on bottom of unit you will find in center. a hexagon port for a hex wrench /allen wrench that will spin hopper back and forth ..this will most of time clear small jambs in hopper of unit ??

also if motor is just spinning . you can hear it freely spinning then the bearing / drive assembly in unit is gone and will have water dripping out of bottom of unit and it is not repairable will need a new unit i have to replace it they are not a rebuild type unit i am license in 2 states plumber so unless unit is few yrs old then may still be uner warranty ..
