Condensate Drain Pan

Would someone kindly let me know if it is still possible to purchase a condensate pan for the old General Electric unit (please see the picture)? I can't find anything like that on the internet. The old one started leaking and from what I can tell my only options are sealing old one with epoxy or replacing it with the custom square pan. Thank you.

The full factory drain pan is usually the entire bottom of the unit.
That looks like an overflow pan under the air handler.

If it's GE and it's old...... extremely doubtful you'll find a GE replacement.

I guess the unit is not very typical. The enclosed drawing shows how the condensate "waterfalls" into this small pan.

Good diagram. Most systems use an A coil which uses a different pan.
I've seen pans where the line comes out the end but not from the middle like that one.

Find a local metal fab shop they will be able to reproduce, in stainless and you will be good for many years!

You could also make one out of fiberglass.

Hello, I would like to report that I had a great success repairing pan with a Pan-Patch sealant. I have cleaned the rust, closed bigger holes with duct tape, and poured the sealant in. Since the pan had two walls that needed to be resurfaced I repeated the procedure twice. After sealant hardened, I've removed the tape and painted the other side. My biggest problem was removing the pan from the unit. Unfortunately, it was put together to be unserviceable.

I would like to thank everyone for the feedback.
