If your machine is leaking from underneath there is a strong chance that the seals inside the tanks are leaking. This means slush gets into the machine and leaks out of the bottom. If this is case please follow the steps below for each tank:
Remove Old Seals
To remove old shaft shaft seals you will need to empty all the liquid from the machine and remove the Tank Bowl, Auger / Spiral and Watertight Shaft Seal Silicone from the machine. You will then be able to remove Shaft Support.
Once this is done clean and examine the seals for damage or wear. If you require replacement seals they can be ordered from the Spares Section of this website.
At this stage we advise inspecting your Drive Shaft for signs of wear. Wear can be caused by lack of lubrication over a long period of time causing the metal on the shafts to wear away and simply replacing the seals does not work, replacement Drive Shaft may be necessary. Please ensure you inspect your shafts before fitting new seals.
Examine closely where indicated, the Drive Shaft should be the same thickness for its full length. If the shaft is not the same thickness and is ridged as shown in the picture (use your finger to feel the ridge) it will need replacing.
