Thanks, mccreight! That's super easy to check. Would you recommend I have a gasket if I'm going to pull the top off and check it?

The existing gasket never survives to be used again. The gasket is cheap, so get one with the new stat, and apply a little silicone to both sides of the gasket to keep it in place and prevent any leaks. And don't over-tighten the housing.
