Aprilaire 700 leaks

After I replaced the filter, the unit leaks water rather than
sending the water down the drain hose. I have transparent hoses so I can see the water not going down. Yes the filter is installed properly. While the water flows through the filter,(it is wet) It beads at the bottom of the unit rather than down the drain hose. I checked the drain and it is clear. Any suggestions??

When you replaced the filter, did you put the paint strip on top?

Make sure you got the frame snapped in place.

Also make sure the "funnel" channel down into the drain opening inside.
