Amana Gas Furnace leaking water

Amana model #21230C175B160167

I noticed water on the floor by the furnace and found water coming from the lower edge of the air chamber(name?) that holds the blower fan. this furnace has a pump that pushes condensation up to the ceiling and over to a laundry tub. the pump housing has some water in it, but not full or over flowing.

Must be some hose blocked, I guess, but not that I could find.

Is there a common problem I can look for?

thanks!

no common problem... you need to trace the source of the water.

Do you have a humidifier. Maybe it's overfilling.

no humidifier. I guess I am left with taking things apart. i was so hoping to just put some compressed air through one of the drain hoses for an easy fix!

thanks for your help!
