Furnace has water

We have a An American Standard Freedom 90 . There seems to be a lot of water running through it. It takes a long time for it to ignite and. The drain line seems to be clean but there is water all over the filter area and leaking on to the floor.
We have a humidifier attached but it has not been running that I know of. Help.

Welcome to the forums.

A condensing furnace extracts so much heat out of the flame that it leaves a lot of moisture. It is normal to have water running thru it. How much.... I don't know for sure as these types of furnaces are not my specialty. A picture or two of your drain setup there would be a big help.

Also... you may have a problem with a leak if the pipe that drains is frozen up.
