Air handler flooded attic.

I have a goodman model number aepf426016ca. I believe it was improperly installed 3 years ago when my house was built. The drip pan connection is where the leak occurred. Upon inspection after it began to rain inside my house today, the spot where the main drain is connected to the unit is cracked. Also there is another threaded connection right next to it that looks like it's supposed to be cut out but isn't. Also it looks like there is an alarm of sorts wired to the drip pan drain that appears to be wired to the thermostat. Why didn't this " alarm" do anything?Is anybody familiar with this unit or how to install these properly? Please help!!

That "thing" is a float switch that shuts the A/C system off if the drain clogs and the pan overfills. It doesn't recognize leaks or improperly installed drain systems.

The PVC fittings or pipe cracked and will need to be replaced.
