Our rig has a drain that puts the water on the roof. Have you checked to see where the drain is draining? The connection might have come loose.

The two most common things are, clogged drain as snowbird said, and the holddown bolts being loose and water leaking under the gasket.

if it's a roof leak then the gasket is not tight or not installed correctly. You can find the hold downs by removing the inside cover. First pop out the filter, there may be a couple of screws accessible there as well as two round plugs that cover the others. The cover attaches to the interior frame, once removed you should see four long bolts that attach the inner and outer frames and squeeze the roof via the foam gasket, that's probably where it's leaking. Try cinching them down a couple of turns but do it evenly so the gasket is compressed equally.

If it leaks during operation then you'll need to inspect the condensate drain on the roof, requiring roof access and removal of the outer cover; look for debris in the pan or drain line.

I stopped it by cleaning the air filter. Seems a little lint will cause it. ??
