I take it that it does not leak freon. If condensation, then remove the inside cover. there are mounting nuts that will have to be tightened a wee bit. Gasket is not pressed enough to keep out the condensation. Be careful that you don't tighten too much, damaging the gasket ..

We experienced similar problems to yours and it was condensation problems. If you are in an area with high humidity you need to make sure the fan is always running on high. Another thing is to remove the top cover and clean the coils to get good air flow.

You don't even give a hint who the manufacturer or what model it is....
but if you remove and clean the filter and then go up top, open it up and clean up the things up there, the condensate water will probably stop pouring inside.

There are two sets of coils that have to be cleaned. The condenser is the hot coil and the evaporator is the cold coil. From the top, the evaporator will need to have a sheet metal plate removed for inspection. When you replace the cover, you will need to use the aluminum tape to seal the joints.

On a maintenance note, we have found that we need to clean the air filters about every 7 to 10 days of use. We do have two small dogs and a parrot.

When you tighten the bolts on the inside, just snug them up. If you over tighten, you will crush the gasket and probably make the leak worse. If the snugging of the bolts does not sop the leak, you will need a new gasket.

The gaskets are not expensive and are not hard to replace. Above all, do not use any caulk on the A/C gasket.

Check the drain hole in the pan under the coil. Water should drain onto the roof but if the drain is plugged the pan over flows and leaks inside
