Noob printer. Having issue with filament leaking

So I've had this issue with a few types and rolls of filaments but sometimes when the nozzle gets up to temperature the filament will come out of the nozzle when it's not supposed to. So instead of printing it just collects all around the nozzle and creates a huge mess. Im not sure if it's a feed motor issue but moving the filament both ways manually works without issue. And I'm using the right Temps for the filament I have installed. Any help would be awesome.

@ppurtee77 Is the leaking situation serious? Because it is normal that the filament will come out few when the temps up.

@kevin yea it will leak and curl up and around the nozzle and won't print correctly. It doesn't come out really fast but it still causes an issue.

@ppurtee77 Please check when it leak, is the gear of the extruder rotating to push the filament?
