For the correct temperature change, the different temperature should be at least 15*--20* degree temp. change from the air sucking in in front of the filter, and from the air blowing out of the front unit. use a thermometer!IIf, not, then you have 2- choices, low on freon, or a dirty ,back coil where the fan blades are.!

What is the problem when an air conditioner begins to freeze up?


Freezing up is caused by
•dirty air filter or evaporator coil(indoor coil)
•dirty blower wheel or blower fan blades
•low freon
•weak or slow blower motor
If air filter and indoor coil are clean may be low on freon. Blower wheels seldom get dirty on window units. Pull unit from window and clean both coils with a water hose. Careful not to get any electrical wet. Let dry for a while and reinstall. If it continues to freeze its a freon problem most the time.

Coil icing up


make sure the filter is very clean. make sure all supply grills are unblocked and open. make sure the indoor fan is blowing. icing coil is normal during heating mode the system will defrost using a sensor. sometimes during cold wet weather the coil will stay iced up. sometimes in cooling mode when it is cool outside 60 degrees or less the coil will ice. low freon will make the coil ice up ,also defrost control not working will cause the coil to ice up

My mother in law has a Ruud 10 Seer air conditioner. She's had it since 1998. The air conditioner runs fine but it will only cool the house now during early morning and evening hours. It no longer...


couple thoughts hee. 1. If you allowed the filter to get really dirt you might well have a "blanket" on the evaperator coil that is not allowing enough air to move over the coil. 2. Low on charge. 3 the compressor is getting ready to give up the ghost.. Bad valves? Check and see in the afternnons if the suction line at the compressor is wet or cold. be careful when touching these lines as the discharge is HOT... But my guess is low charge... Bad compressor..

I have a Goodman home A/C unit and the copper line coming into the house freezes up. The unit continues to run with no cold air. I was told it is either dirty or low on Freon. Are they correct? If it is...


Hello
If you have ice on bigger copper line and no cooling then the unit is low in freon.

As far as cleaning it,you should clean the outside condenser in the spring.Use some simple green and a hose to clean the coils,this will make it better for the heat to transfer to the outside and cut your costs of running the unit down.

No you can not do freon yourself you need to be cfc certified now,which means you can not buy freon.Best to have a service person come out.

I have a ten year old carrier heat pump unit. I recently replaced the indoor tstat. the outside contact and the transformer. Had a tech put freon in the unit also. I have to problems one is the airflow is...


Two things are the most likely culprit. First check ytour inside coil with the unit running for 10 minutes or more and see if the coil is sweating there should be water running off of it. Also after one hour is there ice forming on it. These problems are lack of air flow which is caused by restricted air flow caused by a dirty filter dirty coil (which you have already taken care of) or your blower motor may not be kicking into high speed. Your motor will start and then after it gets to a certain speed it switches to a high speed. After running only 15 minutes if your blower motor is hot to the touch. Be careful some will cook an egg. If it is hot not just warm it is bad and needs to be replaced. Also if the fan is not running properly you can not get reliable readings with your gauges when adding freon. So if this is the problem then you may have to have the units freon cked again. If the line is not sweating at the outside unit where it goes into the unit the freon pressure is not right. The larger copper line will be cold and sweating the small line will be hot to the touch when the system is balanced and running properly. I hope this helps

RUUD AC cycles warm & cold 24/7


Hello Anna Sounds like the compressor is overheating and stoping on overload internally.Then it cools down restarts and runs into overload again.I would like to see the freon pressures when running.Could have a clog/restriction in piping.I dont like that you went thru a compressor already, the original installition is suspect.The original (1st) failure cause must be corrected.Check the TXV valve replace, filter/dryer look for a kinked pipe are ideas for overheating.Make sure condenser coil is free (ari flow)& clean also.

Ice is forming on coil fins


Either your coil is dirty or filter is dirty. Worst case your low on freon which would make a coil freeze.But freon doesn't evaporate if your low there must be a slow leak.

FREEZING COILS


Hi, Sounds like its low on refrigerant. Could also be restricted air flow inside. Turn the AC off and the inside fan on for about 3-4 hours to thaw out the evaporator. Replace the inside air filter. If you can see the side of the evaporator that the air goes into, check to see if it has a blanket of fuzz on it. If so, It can be cleaned with a credit card while its wet by scraping along with the fins. Turn the AC back on and let it run for about 20 minutes. The large line outside should sweat all the way to the compressor but the compressor should stay mostly dry. There may not be anything wrong with you unit. When it is cooler at night they will sometimes freeze if the thermostat is turned down too low during the night and the air restriction will not let it thaw during the day. Hope this helps. kstfas
