Goodman furnace water? leak


Hi- I noticed water on the floor and thought my son spilled laundry soap or something. I noticed it dripping about halfway up the bottom compartment- opened it- dry. So I opened the top and saw this water on the bottom left. I didnt notice a gas smell to it but I do have severe year round allergies. Any clue what the problem is? Are we in danger? I cannot afford a repair man. Single mom and disabled. Please help

Gas furnaces must be routinely serviced. If you can't afford it call your gas provider. They can help.

Do you have A/C attached to that furnace ?
If yes..... that is probably where the water is coming from. Possibly a clogged condensate drain.
You won't get any water out of the furnace until the heat is running.

If you don't have A/C and you are running the heat then you have a clogged furnace drain.
That is going to require servicing.

No AC. Maybe I can find a YouTube vid on how to do it or does it involve disconnecting gas? I dont think the little water thing attached to the side is working.. is that what u mean? usually you see bubble and movements in the clear tube. I just see it full of water no movement

There are two black hoses in the bottom right that are part of the drain system.
The clear plastic tube sounds like a drain line from a condensate pump.

Post the full model number off the ID plate.

I just got home.I will- but when I got here the house felt chilly- apparently the furnace isn't even turning on at all

Could be condensation in the pressure switch tubing.
Almost looks like your collector box is leaking water.
