Get the dimensions and model number of your system and go to your HVAC supply store. (ex: Johnstone Supply, Grainger, United Refrigeration)

Sorry you have to put up with that wise guy stuff.

You will probably be better off sizing the whole coil and have a new one installed. Trying to install just the drain pan is a hassle. Good luck.

Nice try. That thread was dead as soon as the OP logged off. I know because i answered the op on another site.

And since when cant you replace the pan only?

I did ten last month.

If you don't have the know how than don't dissuade a DIY from doing something that only takes the removal of about ten zip screws. Replacing the whole coil because of a leaky pan is like replacing the whole axle with new tires if your car had a flat.
You got something to say to to me say it directly. don't beat around the bush like some wussy coward.
