Leaks from pvc

Hello! My Trane Model TXC061C5HPC0 Serial Number 5093xwa5g has a leak coming down one of two 4 inch pvc pipes that appear to be going to the roof. (i think their 4 inch). That connect in a "T" configueration from the roof.
I'm looking for the diagram or drawing of this unit so i can figure out the who what where and why there is water and is that normal to have water in those pipes.
Also i found that one of the two the panel doors that has an interlock switch was not being made. Will this effect anything? The unit is heating and cooling??
Can one fix a pvc fitting leak without ripping the whole thing out?

Leaks from pvc

Yes it can be fixed. Rough up the spot that is leaking with hasp or very coarse sand paper. Make sure furnace is off.

There is a PVC glue that has primer already pre-mixed with the PVC glue.
Apply liberally to suspect leak area. Try not to allow dribbles. Let dry a few hours and then restart unit to check for leaks.


Just slow, not stupid.
