    Wink York leaking model TG8S080B12MP11A

    Our AC unit is leaking, and I don't know how to troubleshoot. I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty, so I would like to try to fix it myself, it it's not a huge job. I'm attaching two photos of where it's leaking(I wasn't sure how to describe it).
    Can anyone point me in the right direction?
    And don't worry about insulting my intelligence.

    You've got more problems then a leak!

    Flex lines are not allowed in the cabinet! From the pic get a qualified contractor to go thru the entire unit!

    Supposedly, a "qualified contractor" installed it. Are you talking about the yellow line?
    What all is wrong with it? Is there a way to stop the leak? I'm asking because of financial reasons.

    I sympathize with the financial situation but that job needs a qualified tech to go thru the entire situation.

    As you said Supposedly qualified, they / he wasn't!

    That is a fuel burning appliance that produces deadly byproducts. For you and your loved ones safety have the entire unit professionally checked and tested!

    Code dictates flex line cannot pass through the cabinet of the furnace, if used it instead must be terminated exterior to the cabinet wall.
    What’s with the rust? Something has been leaking for a while. Were you using the air conditioner or furnace when that photo was taken?

    I turned it off when I took the picture, and have left it off. Thank goodness my inlaws had extra window unit.

    The line voltage wire fastened to the gas flex connector is asking for trouble.
