a/c is dripping water

I have a Carrier Weathermaker 9200, my problem is I have water dripping from the house unit. I can not locate the drip pan to see if that is the reason. All of the drain pipes are dry so I know it's not coming from them, when I take the front cover off, I can see water in the unit by the heater system of the unit, and at the very bottom of the unit.

The condensate drain pipes are probably dry because there is a clog, which is allowing the drain pan to overflow.

If you have a wet/dry vacuum cleaner you can hold the end of the vacuum hose tightly around the end of the condensate drain line and see if you are able to suck the clog out.

If that doesn't work you may have to get to the drain pan and see if you can clear it from the inside the unit.
