Goodman GMN100-4 heater in horizontal position leaks condensation
This unit used to be in an upright position and worked fine. The unit in a horizontal position now leaks condensation from behind and below the exhaust fan. Is there a fix for this or something that has to be repositioned?

Hello, it sounds like your condensate line is clogged and not be able to drain into the condensate pump or your condensate pan is cracked and leaking. Best thing to do is clean the condensate line with a shop vac and see if the water will start to drain, if not looks like the pan is cracked.
No. The installers did not properly plumb you hose. You have a high efficientfurnace which is really nice. However, this furnace takes out moister from the air when heating, causing condensation. I would look at the installation manual and see if they installed them properly. They might of installed the wrong unit for you home. Most Goodman furnaces can only be installed up-flow meaning in the closet or horizontal installed meaning in the attic. Look at the installation manual to see if they installed the right unit for your home. www.fastacservice.com
how long have you had the unit,, depending on where you live you might be using your ac in your house and if the installer didn't install the condensate catcher on the flu pipe then you wil have water runing out of the unit, if it is happening all the time then you would need to have a service tech come out that would meen something like the tank or a water line is broken,, but since you said it's coming from the side I would have to say it is condensation
