That is your coil, it looks like a radiator of your car...if water is dripping out the crap is still stuck in the coils.


If my advise helped you hit "Thanks"

Wonder what the other side looks like.
Did he cut an access hole to clean both sides?

The top side was pretty clean, none of the debris got through the bottom coils. But he did clean from both sides. I do not think he cut any holes, because both the top and bottom of the foil is accessible from the front of the unit when the cover is removed.

That IS the COIL or as it is officially known as the "A" COIL because it forms a sort of A shape in the duct. It is either,...still clogged and maybe has to come out to be cleaned properly OR it may have bent/damaged fins..that's the tiny little blades that form the "mesh" part of the A COIL if they are severely bent that could also act like a blockage..Air Conditioning mechanic should have tool (special comb) to straighten them if necessary. May have to cut an access hole in the duct to access the A COIL in order to clean it out properly or straighten fins..should be able to shine light through all portions of the coil and see the light shine through to other side.
