    I have cleaned the drain line from the Aframe drain and still I am getting water into my duct work , just had a new motor put in and I was wondering if the drain pan under the
    aframe has a seal that could let this water into my duct work.

    May be a clogged P-trap on the condensate drip line.
    May be a hole in the drip pan under the evaporator coils.
    May be the motor is running at too high a speed and blowing the condensate off the evaporator coils and into the ductwork.

    Another idea: You may have missing insulation on your cooling line. This COLD line will cause condensation and dripping . . . result is water where you do not want it. Inspect the cooling line carefully.

    I had a repair like this that did $$$ damage downstairs and mold.

    moisture on cold uninsulated duct work will condense inside the duct
