I am referring to what is called the condensation unit or trap.
It is mounted on the left side of the furnace about 18" above the floor.
There is a plastic cap on the front and a small rubber cap at the bottom.
On the reverse side there is another rubber cap and an assembly that connects to a round vertical unit about
Then connected to this filter at the bottom is a vinyl tubing which runs to a drain.
I removed the small rubber cap and some water came out.
I am not sure if water is being drained through the vinyl tubing.
Do you have a full model number and serial number?
Ok. I found what I needed. I am attaching a link that shows you the trap for your furnace. When these traps are installed they should not be glued in to the furnace. They are installed by pushing the two male ends into the furnace and they have two rubber rings to keep from leaking and negative air draws. There is two 1/4 inch screws that hold this to the furnace. In some cases these traps are over tightened because technicians will use a cordless and when this happens it pulls on this black box that we call a condensate trap. Inside this trap there is channel that can break when over tightened and they will leak. I suggest you change this condensate trap out and if the serial number is XXXXX later it will be under warranty. Let me know if you have further questions.
Positive feedback is appreciated!!
