    Central AC drip pan
    I have a Bryant heating and AC, Model FB4A, and it has developed an overflow of water from the drip pan. What is the usual procedure for repairing this type of problem?

    Clear the drain line. The drain is pluged up. Ususlly there is a pvc/plastic drain line that is white.
