Dripping condensation at lower condenser coils

I have a brand new Trane AC install. There's a forced air gas furnace in the attic. The whole system is a positive pressure system.

The problem is I noticed some condensation leaking out of the front lower edge of the evaporator coil. Upon further inspection, the fan (which is on high) was blowing condensate past the drain by about a quarter of an inch. For a temporary fix, we put some flashing behind the drain to catch the condensation.

Is this type of fix enough to solve the issue, or am I treating a symptom instead of the problem? Could this lead to mold issues down the road? I'm at a loss on how to proceed.

Thanks!

If you have a significant amount of water in the pan , then the pan is not draining properly .

The whole air handler unit may be tilted so the pan is tilted away from the drain .

Adjust / shim the air handler to correct this .

The drain may be partially / completely stopped up . Use a wet vac to blow or vacuum the line clear . Or an air compressor to blow it clear .

Do you have a condensate pump ? Is it working properly ?

God bless
