condensate can't drain while AC blower is running

15 years ago

I have a Goodman ARUF3743 Air Handler in my attic that I helped an HVAC contractor install last fall.

The problem I am having is that since it is mounted horizontally the drain holes are next to the return and the condensate does not drain out until the blower stops running. IÂve shut the AC down once and saw the condensate shooting out of the end of the tubing outside. With the access panel removed and the AC on I was able to see that the condensation accumulates but canÂt drain away because the air coming through the return blows the water away from the drain. What can I do to allow the water to drain away while the blower is still running? Is there a kit that can be purchased to prevent this or is the evaporator coil installed incorrectly?
