Hoping someone can help,
Looks like we need to get hold of a new Evaporator coil, our current one ,its seems has rusted away down where it touches the drip pan.
Also when the Ac is running the water is being sucked down to the fan compartment.

I have a Nordyne C3QA-030U-B,,and its just over 10 years old.
We were planning on getting a whole new system about this time next year, but it seems we may need to buy a coil to make it through the summer lol.

Ok, well basically if you cannot find a factory replacement. Try to find an A Coil that is the same dimensions or darn close to it. I found this link to ebay for a seller who says they have most mobile home coils, http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-1-2-Ton-Mobil ... 1351991190

Maybe if you shoot them your model they can get you one the same or close to it. Keep in mind now the cost of putting it in. If you do get it installed I would run it till the unit dies before changing the entire system since your about to drop some good $$$ into it.

Thanks for the reply.
It turns out that the water being sucked down into the blower housing was caused by the A coil front panel rusting away enough to allow the water in the drip pan to be sucked through.
I took off the front panel,( after using a screw extractor for 2 of the screws) and made a new one out of aluminum sheeting.
Installed that,carefully navigating the copper pipes.
That should fix us up , till next year when we can get a new system :D
