Wet line on the ceiling between 2 vents

When I went to bed last night, I looked up and noticed a wet line going between the 2 vents in our master bedroom. The vents are about 8 feet apart. We are the only owners of our house that was built in June of 2002. I am thinking that maybe there is a problem with the ducts in the AC since it is from vent to vent. We have an amana prestige 2 unit. I don't know who to even call about this problem. Any ideas of what it might be or who can help? Can my husband and I fix this problem ourselves? Thanks!

You have a clogged condensate drain line and the condensate is now being syphoned up by the blower and coming out the duct work.
Find where the condensate drain exits the house and you can back flush it gently with a garden hose. Then clean out the condensate pan and pour a mixture of warm water and baking soda into the pan down the drain.

Not cooling off my room

Check your filter to make sure it is clean, if not replace it.

Make sure at least 90% of the vents are uncovered.

This will ensure you are getting proper airflow to the coil. At that point if it is still doing it, and all the fans are running properly, then you either have a dirty coil or low refrigerant charge.

Check the temp coming out of the vents, and the temp going into the return. It should be 15 to 20 degrees cooler coming out than it is going in.

If it is less than 15 degrees, chances are your problem is low refrigerant. You will need a CFC certified refrigeration tech to add refrigerant or locate the leak.

Wet line on ceiling between 2 air vents that runs about 8 feet

I would begin by inspecting and repairing the flashing around each vent. Generally you can use a caulk gun with a tube of roof cement for this quick repair.
