Cool Leaking Water from Condensation Pump

I need some guidance... I am leaking/dripping water from the condensation pump on the side of my propane furnace. Can you advise on what to do?

- Is it clogged?
- Did it just fail period?


Are there any guides you can link me to on how to go about this? Is this even something I should go about fixing on my own? Is it a simple fix?

Thanks,

Did you actually determine that water is (a) leaking from somewhere on the pump (lid, etc.), or (b) overflowing from one of the openings in the top?

Most pumps have a float switch to turn it off if overfilled, but may not be hooked up to furnace to shut it off.

It appears (to me) that the front of furnace is wet. Remove the blower door panel. Could be a clogged trap.

It appears to mostly be leaking from the tube that goes up in the air to nowhere. The water is only coming form that condensation unit. I have since placed a bucket under it and the floor has remained dry.
