My furnace is leaking water. I have determined it is coming

My furnace is leaking water. I have determined it is coming from the drip pan below the refrigerant evaporator. The pan is draining and not overflowing. I cannot determine how to get into this area of the ducting to see if I can clog, what is presume, would be a whole. I don't understand how there would be a hole but here we are

My air filter today was exactly three months and one day

My air filter today was exactly three months and one day old. I came home from work at 7:00 PM, and it felt hot, so I went to turn the A/C down. I could hear the fan running outside, but the inside temp was 78 while the thermostat was set to 75, and I noticed an alert that said FILTER on the thermostat. I changed the air filter, then looked at the unit outside and saw some ice on the tube running from the unit into the house. (I was very surprised that missing changing the filter by just one week would cause this problem.)turned off the A/C to wait for it to thaw. I tried running just the fan by setting the "Cool/Off/Heat" switch to "Cool" and the Fan switch to "On" (rather than "Auto"), but the fan did not come on. I turned the switch from "Off" to "Cool", and the fan fired up. I cranked up the target temp - it was 80 degrees in the house by then, and as soon as the target hit 81, the fan shut off.About half an hour later, with nothing running, I noticed a light, weird, burning-type smell inside.After waiting for two hours, I verified the ice was gone from the tube outside and turned the A/C back on. The fan fired up, but no air flowed through the vents, and I noticed that odd, light smell again.So that's where we're at. I'm a little concerned it wasn't working after two hours (and the odd smell concerns me as well), but I guess I'll try again after three hours.After three hours, still nothing coming through the vents. However, when I opened the part where the air filter is, there is definitely conditioned air flowing through there. On the other side of the wall, outside the intake vent that feeds air through the air filter, I can feel "pools" of conditioned air in the floor. So it seems like whatever mechanism is supposed to make the air flow through the vents may not be working - hence the conditioned air leaking back out of the intake vent onto the floor.Any ideas? Thanks!!JA: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?Customer: It's a brand-new filter now. I was just looking into how to "reset" my thermostat.JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: When I thought it was simple as changing the filter and waiting a few hours for it to thaw, yes. :-) But we are renting so if it's actually broken I need to let my landlord know - also for my peace of mind I'm wondering whether not changing the filter at three months exactly would have broken it - because they emailed me on August 1 to remind me to change it, but I never got around to it. :-(JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: I think I gave you every possible detail :-) - I know details are the key to troubleshooting. :-) But I'll gladl answer any questions you have!

I have a train r22 unit that had a compressor go out to

I have a train r22 unit that had a compressor go out to ground, changed drier and system run fine. After running returned to find drier stopped up. Changed and pulled vacuum and held. Started and run fine. Returned to find drier stopped up again. Changed and started to find distributor Orifices Restricted on a few feeds and running a low suction normal head with weighed in charge. Let run and returned to find drier stopped up again and frosting. I removed and could barely blow through it. I drilled out orifices to unstop and the next day checked the drier that was stopped up I could blow through like a new drier with ease? What could be stopping these driers up and then disappearing . The system by microns showers the system to be dry .
