Is the drain draining good outside? It is possible if drain is blocked up that water is running over side of pan in back part of air handler.The SS1 is a good safety measure but do nt always work.
How old is air handler and what is model? In past Carrier used metal pans that would rust and leak?
Should have a plastic pan.Look from bottom side of air handler and make sure coil is clean.A dirty coil will create a turbulance blowing water out of pan
They can be if filter not replaced every month or air handler drawing air in that is not filtered.
Coil will be dirty. Often if connected by a duct that is not properly sealed or not sealed at platform if in a closet.Can you look at coil and see if it is clean?It should be perfectly clean so water can run down fins and into pan
If unit is low on refrigerant the coil will ice.And yes that could be the issue.See if the coil looks frozen or partially frozen
Take your time. Also look for any signs of ice at copper tubing and outdoor unit
Do you have a connection in pipe where you can blow drain out and take a flashlight and see if maybe there is some gunk in the pan?
May be some gunk in the 3/4 " fitting on front of coil.May be necessary to cut the pvc , clean it out then install a coupling to reconnect
I am suspecting although you have some water coming out that we have a partial blockage
If you can remove the float from the SS1, you might be able to take a shop vac and suck on tee or use an air compressor and blow into tee. Ohterwise I would say cut pvc and blow out then reconnect with a coupling
That is correct. The top section of the SS1 will pull out of the tee
Have to leave for a bit, but will check in when I get back to see what you found
