water leaking out of furnace


I have a 20 yr old unit. Sits in room off back of kitchen. Noticed water on the floor. The water is condensing & dripping down off the copper tube that runs under the house to the outside unit. There is a red drain plug there so sure enough I opened it & water came out. Replaced plug but it still dripping. What is the bad news?

Your drain line is clogged to let the water out of the pan, that sits between the furnace & A-coil.

Is this a "DIY" project or am I going to shell out some $$$ for someone to look at it?

It is as long as you do not create a problem unclogging the drain, or find out that the A-Coil is iced over, when you take the cover off of the ductwork where the A-Coil is sitting. You are welcome to post pic's of the furnace, if wanting to know where to look.
