The O rings at the drain are leaking, replace them asap, fire aint good, There are several companys that make the repair kit, under 20.00, do it now.

When the seperator valve O rings go they will usually leak out the drain line. Not saying this isn't your problem but a good visual inspection looking for loose or cracked fittings would be a good idea. The Mirror on a stick and a flashlight are a big help.
