Default Garbage Disposal Leaking

My garbage disposal is leaking water out the bottom via the wire connection area and from another small opening on the bottom. Is it worth trying to take apart or would I be wasting my time. Should I just replace it. It is an Emerson.

The shaft seal has failed...

It is time for a new one...

I would suggest looking at the Insinkerator Evolution Product Line for a replacement.
