Is there any water coming out of the condensate drain line coming from the evaporator case (indoor coil)?

Is the leak from the case itself?

All air conditioners condense water at the interior coil during normal operation.

Usually the water is caught in a tray just under the coil but there must be a hose or pipe that drains the water outside or to a nearby sink.
