I have a first co. closet furnace and it's giving me some

Customer Question

I have a first co. closet furnace and it's giving me some trouble. The thermostat is working. But there's no reaction from the furnace or ac when either are set to turn on. Breakers have been checked. Fuses are good. 120v at wall outlet. After removing the cover i see dripping water everywhere. The blower fan is in the bottom of the housing. (Furnace is a small box unit that hangs above the water heater. ) the radiator coils are on the left and top of the blower fan motor. The upper coils are set in a thin space between the top of the unit and a drip pan seperating them from other compenents below. How ever a vent is directly below them which leads the the blower fan it's self.. Thats an problem. And the water is touching electrical compenents (control board?) In the upper right housing in the same space as the coils & drip pan.. the door switch is receiving power on the unit but there are other electrical components in the same flooded housing as the switch... What do I need to replace. And what do i need to read to know how to do it myself..
