How do you fix an old cieling mounted ductless air conditioning unit leaking water?

The AC unit is a very old unit and the side of it has rusted through leaving a hole. When the AC unit is on, the fan blows water out of the drain pan into the ceiling space causing water to leak. How should i fix the hole or should i just concentrate on clearing the clogged drain pan?

You need to do both, fix the hole in the side, and clean the clogged drain pan.
The best way to fix the hole, is to clean up or remove all the rusted metal sides, and try to make it square or round in size. But a small sheet of aluminum, just large enough to cover the hole. Get a sheet of rubber gasket, or use some silicon sealant, around the edges to make it leak tight.
You can use self tapping screws or pop rivets to mount the new cover with the gasket or sealant, to attach it to the side of the A/C. Doing both of those, will prevent the leaking.
You can check your local hardware store, for nippers, or a small hand held hacksaw, to cut away the rusted material. And also buy the small sheet you need to seal up the hole.
