Help: Air Condtioning question (Leaking at bottom of unit )

Hi: I own an 11 year old upright Trane XL80 HVAC system. Today we discovered the carpet was wet out side our HVAC equipment closet.
It was earlier in the AM, so I think the system was still cooling.
First- I thought no problem, probably the Condensation water removal pump was bad and it was causing a back-up leak. It was funky inside and out and the hose to the outside was brittle. So I replaced the hose cleaned the pump and I figured I was good to go.
I turned the system onand notice a the house was not cooling and the water was still coming out the very bottom of the unit. I removed the panels. FIRST: Water was leaking from the very bottom fan compartment-I had no idea how it was getting there? SECOND: I checked the evaporator coil on the top (I think it's called that) and there was no water in the pan or near the pipe leading to the pump. I could NOT see behind the coil but saw no blockagesstopping drip water from going to the excavation pipe to the pump.
THIRD: I went outside and the outside the house unit is NOT blowing (working).
FOURTH: I've checked fuses-all OK (inside and outside)
NOW: the house is hot. I don't know why there is a trickling leak or how it gets to the bottom.
What are your suggestions to possibly explain the leak and how it gets to the bottom?
ALERT! I just checked one last time and had not connected the emergency shutoff wires on the condensate pump. I reconnected them and reset the fuses and I now have a working outside unit and cool air.
I STILL HAVE THE DRIP..LEAK... THOUGH?
