Look for a cover that covers the a A coil.take the small 1/4 in screws out and carefully remove the covers or cover if you have access do both sides. my basement has enough room to get to both sides. my house tlr you can only do one side. look for a drain hole blow it out with a air hose or garden hose run a wire if you have to.

I have a Carrier furnace and noticed water on the floor. I saw it was coming from the filter housing. I pulled out the filter which was wet only on the bottom And noticed the pan/track it sits in had water...

Hello, there might be a crack in the condesate pan. Usually if the leak is concentrated in one area that is the cause. If the water would be leaking all around then a blockage in the drain line would be a problem. Have the drain pan inspected.

Leaking water thru the ducts on thru my ceiling

Your condensate drain pan is clogged.This is at your inside coil or airhandler.There is a drain also attached to the pan that is probably clogged.
Shut the unit down and pull the covers off should be near where the filter goes.Find the drain hole and get the debris out.

You may need to get a new filter also its probably wet too.

There is water in the living room floor after the unit runs even for a short time. Where do you locate the stopped up drain. Where would I begin my search?

If your furnace is in the closet or laundry room, the coil that's leaking is either(1) on the top of the furnace if your ductwork is in the ceiling,(2) on the bottom of the furnace if your ductwork is in the floor. The drain that may be stopped up stubs out of the bottom left or right hand corner of the coil box. Sometimes you can flush it out with water but the best way is to find the end of the drain and get a shop vac and stick the shop vac hose on the drain, seal it real good and try pulling the junk out of your drain. Your drain may drain outside somewhere on maybe to a floor drain.

The condenser coil is in the outdoor unit. Turn off the power. Take a garden hose without the nozzle. You want to use gentle pressure. Just simply using your thumb to control the spray. Spray the water up at an angle under the slanted lovers. use a generous amount of water. you should see the dirt coming our. You will have to take the cover off to clean that side of the coil. Be careful so you do not get the electrical controls wet when the door is off. The Evaporator coil is located in the supply air plenum downstream of the airflow. ( the top if its in a basement). You probably will need to open the ductwork.
Good luck.....
