Francis :

Hello, this is sounding like a clogged drain line. Have you check if there is still water on the drain pan? The one that catches the water condensate? after you have blown on it. And may I know what did you use to blow on the drain pan hole? Thanks

JACUSTOMER-v6kdi1p4- :

the drain is clear the pan is empty the water shoots out the front hits the back of the plastic cover and drips down the front of the unit

Francis :

Hello again, thank you for those info. If you open the front cover, trace where the water is dripping so that it could be blown by the air. There should be no water that would drip outside the drip pan. The way it is design, the very bottom of the evaporator coil should sit inside the drain pan. Water would just flow from the fins down to the pan. Then the air that is blowing is still at the bottom of the drain pan so there should be no water passing by the drip pan unless the drip pan is over flowing , in which case, it is not.

Francis :

The coil itself could be dirty on the inside, (which you might not see, unless you bring down the whole unit). There are cases where the is in the back of then coil, hardly seen, and is causing for the water not to flow into the drain pan.

Sorry for the typo error...There are cases where the dirt is in the back of the coil, hardly seen, and is causing for the water not to flow into the drain pan.
