    Clean coil with evaporator coil cleaner to be sure coil does not have oily film that water will not adhere to.Check charge also undercharge will cause coil to "stripe" with warm and cold rows water will drop when it hits a warm row .You can also remove front cover and cover opening with plexiglass to watch system while it's running to see where water is dripping.

    Thanks i had seen this online and had them try it yesterday.

    The plexiglass bit wouldn't apply on this unit but they checked the charge and cleaned the coil. It still leaked. Ordering the condensation kit

    My plexiglass experience is... go through all the trouble buying the material... measure and cut it to fit the blower panel..btw the attic was 140*...
    Tape it in place... turn it on and instantly the plexiglass fogged up so bad you cannot see anything.... waste of time..✌️

    There is no way plexiglass is fitting on this thing. It's not a plain Jane plenum coil.

    You mean like a bear trap? Or maybe the shape, or the muscle?

    Could you be referring to a dude that legitimately looks like a woman?

    What is this "trap" madness you speak of?

    Yes, i checked the trap.

    Munters made a series of units years ago that were leak monsters. These were rtu style dehumidifiers. When I went out to a building with a senior tech, we found like 1/2 dozen units leaking condensate. It was turbulence of the air flow that would suck the condensate off the coils past the pans. Fix was a sheet metal plate that would intercept the splash and gravity would take it to the pan. Other techs had been fighting this issue for a while. There was silicone caulk everywhere!

    I had to do the plexiglas thing at another location to isolate the leak in another building, similiar units. Never used a Go-Pro camera, but, this might be an occasion?
