Evap coil condensate drip pan drain holes plugged up.....drip pan is overflowing

With A/C Unit running the fan will suck the water/moisture from return side (where evap coil is) and blow it into discharge plenum and into ducts

Moisture laden air can lead to mold

Need to clean/clear evap dip pan drain holes ASAP

Well, wet areas are never good and can cause mold and eventual rot, but if you need a/c in the short term, what else to do? As far as the operation of the a/c itself, no problem.

One possible quick fix: with the inside cover off and looking up inside, you should see a bolt in each corner. This is a clamp, basically squeezing the upper and lower sections together over a gasket on the roof. One or more may have loosed up, so try tightening a bit. Not till to can't turn them any more, just more snug. It may solve the problem.

AC water leak

Thanks!
Problem solved. During hot weather fan needs to be set on high. If set on low, as mine was, coils freeze. Water cannot drain outside from roof area.
Lesson learned. Problem solved!
Thanks!
