Greetings and Welcome to JustAnswer.

I am Andrew your Support Technician with over 30 years of experience, it can be very frustrating when electronic devices go wrong but from my experience misconfiguration are usually the problem and they can be quickly resolved with the right advice and assistance. Please allow me a few moments to investigate, I will respond at the earliest either requesting more information or providing further information.

I have investigated the information you have shared with me today and understand you have a slight water leak but don't wish to remove any screws to detach the tray. I cant see it being a problem if you do just to give the unit a clean, if you feel you are uncomfortable doing so, I also don't see it being a problem if you clean around it.

I hope the information provided today helps and if you have any questions or require any further assistance, please let me know and I will do my best to answer those!
