Your drain is plugged with crud or mold causing the drip tray to overflow into your house. OR you do not have the unit installed so that it tilts slightly toward the drain. You may be able to ream out the drain clearing the blockage with a small plumbers snake (by hand, not a drill)... if the drain hole is too small some stiff electrical wire should fit to use as a snake. Use the best fit wire gauge in American wire gage every 6 gauge decrease gives a doubling of the wire diameter, and every 3 gauge decrease doubles the wire cross sectional area.

Personally for condensate drains most people blow with co2, I prefer using a shop vac.

Lots of condensate drains are barely glued together (pvc). Running the risk of bursting them behind a wall isn't worth it.
