Where is it leaking?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I think from the top where the plastic pipes connect into the filter - that small white cylindrical thing.

Actually I just checked again. It is coming from holes in the metal roof above where the water bottler sits. Is that normal? I am getting about two or three cups of water coming out of it, going right across the kitchen floor. I think it builds up during the day and all over flows from the bottom of the machine at night.
