It is one of the two hoses that is split. This is my second coffee maker within the last year and a half. I threw the first one away without even looking at it to determine what the problem was on the coffee maker last year. Today I decided to take the bottom off and take a look. I found one of the hoses had split. We are having to buy another coffee maker tonight.

Well, without further information I can point you to a number of things.

If coffee: It is likely your decanter is off center during brewing. Additionally, if you own a glass decanter, it's possible that it is cracked and leaking. If this is the case, you may want to replace with a metal thermal decanter that is more resistant to that kind of damage.

If water, there are several things that could be going on. Your first step may be to visit the Troubleshooting page for this device as it has several causes for water around the base. Many users experience cracked water tubing in these types of coffee makers regardless of brand, so that is something you should definitely check.

Have you made sure that your drip tray is seated correctly?

One thing not in the guide is steam condensation. You'll see small puffs of steam coming from the bottom. If enough deposits form around the aluminum tube connected to the rubber hoses, or the hose is old and brittle, it won't seal well so steam leaks out were the metal meets the rubber tube held by the spring clip, this condenses on the bottom as drips and drabs, rather than a bigger leak caused by a hole in the hose. Doing the vinegar clean on coffee maker while it is new will reduce the build up and prolong the life but it will happen anyway just at a later date or when the hoses give way. So if you intend to look for leaks, have a spare hose ready as even if it isn't leaking, just removing it could tear a worn, old, but still good hose.
