Most likely drain has gotten stopped up. I would start by removing and cleaning drain and drain pan.
Can you see the coils to see if they are clean?
If fins on coil get dirty, sometimes water will not run down the fins into pan
Are you able to get to the drain pan itself? (This my require some parts removal).? If so I would start by using some spray self flushing coil cleaner on the coils and vacuuming then rinsing pan.
The water should be running smoothly down the evaporator fins into the pan and then out the drain. Sometimes sludge will build up in the pan and partially block drain.Then water will overflow and the turbulence can even draw the water out of pan and cause it to blow out front. Let me know what you find.
Take your tim,e
Can you attach a photo? And are the fins good and clean so that water can run down them?
You should see a paper clip icon on this page for attaching the file. Photo of the coil and water dripping
Got the pics. Both look clean from all I can tell. Not sure what else may be preventing water from running down into pan and out drain.I will open this to other experts to see if they have any ideas.
Hello I am a different tech can you take a picture further back so I can see the whole thing and if you can have someone take the picture and point to the leak..I am trying to picture this whole thing.
So it is like the water is getting blown off the fins and off the trim right?
Ok can you remove the drain line from the unit and see if the water drains out the drain hole and not the front?
ok and it is leaking out the front corner correct?
Could the unit be tipped and are all the seals good for the cover that goes over the evaporator?
OK did the issue start after the cover was removed? If so I believe the cover is not sealing correctly this will allow air to be blown around the are of the cover where the seal is not good and water will become an issue. Check the cover and seal very carefully I am 99% sure this is the issue here.

It sounds like water is either backing up in the unit...can you remove the cover right after it starts to leak to see if any water is pooled in the drain pan?
Yes but when it starts to leak can you remove the covers and see if you can see water pooled or backed up in the pan?
OK no problem if you can please let me know what resolves your issue if you do not mind coming back to let me know. Thanks for trying this service and I hope next time we can get your issue resolved!
