Heat pump water leak caused rust


I have a split unit since I live in condo. All of a sudden I ended up with a water leak. The drip pan is made of plastic but the water must of sat in the pan and now the bottom of the galvanized steel of the actual unit had rusted which caused the bracket that holds the drip pain to drop thus it couldn't drain at all since the left side was lower than the right side where the tray drains to the outside.

I used a wet vac and a pulled all the water out. I then ran the wet vac to blow and I have a piece with a flexible hose that allowed me to put it the drain pipe. Not sure if it went down far enough to clear any potential clog. I then used puddy epoxy to reattach the bracket that holds the drip pan as a temp fix. Anyhow, I'm probably going to have to call someone in to fix it properly. Can the galvanized steel be replaced. I didn't see how the drip pan comes off from the back. I hope I don't have to buy a whole new unit.

Depends on the unit.

Sorry, forgot to post that info:

Goodman Company Model AC36-00C

It's the steel above part number 81 that is rusted.

Looks like you can order that part(201) and replace it. Does look easy to replace though.

Thats not a unit that I am familiar with though.
