Marineland Canister filter c160 leaking!!

I got a brand new Marineland Canister filter c160 and alone setting it up it started leaking out of the top, below the motor. I took everything out, when through the instructions reading every word and and putting it together just like the instructions said and it still did it. I donít know what to do and the place I got it from is far away. Any suggestions? Please?????

For future advice on the canister, if it leaks with the gasket take it off and coat it in Vaseline. It will give you a really good seal. If the outtake gives ya alot of bubbles might wanta do it too. It gives a better seal for no air to enter. I love my c-360.
