A leaky humidifier
When there is too much water in the furnace it can spring a leak in the humidifier in the furnace. This happens when a furnace is not regularly evaluated and maintained. The pipes can clog as well.
Pipe sizes are incorrect: when you have a standard efficiency unit and you note a leak or water pooling, it is likely due to a bade pipe and if the furnace is a new install the pipe sizes are likely incorrect. Condensation issues are not part of this type of furnace.
An issue with condensation issue can arise when you have a high efficiency furnace. The result is dampness, and if you note pooling of water near the unit, there is likely a broken tube inside the unit.
