Whirlpool Heat and Air Window Unit ACE184XRO- freezing up

We have the above listed unit upstairs. Yesterday it quit putting out much air/cool air. When opened up the coils were frozen. We let it sit overnight to thaw. We just restarted it and within a minute the bottom coils started frosting up. The unit is putting out cool air now but for how long? I have no idea where to go for help or what to do. Please help. Thank you. Jeanette

This is only low freon. If the bottom coils freezes and frost over, you don't have enough freon to travel as liquid back to the compressor and boils right there and past this only cool gas .I'll advise you to get this fixed before you loose a compressor due to locking up by not cooling the compressor properly. Get in touch with an Ac man. this should only cost around $100:00

We have 2 units (upstairs and downstairs) the upper unit no longer cools, we've had several calls done and a coil was replaced, issue persists and it will not cool below 85 degrees. The downstairs unit...


Check the supply air tempeture and the retun air temp.. to do this you put a termitor where the air come out and take the temp. then you check the air at the return where it goes back to the blower. you shoudl see a 15-20 degree diffrence. the oterh thing MIGHT be that cold air is heavier than warm air so it sinks down stairs. close off all the rooms upstairs might help .

10,200 BTU a/c blows air but not cool air


They can freeze up if the outside air is too cool. It needs to be over 65 degrees outside and inside. Another possibility is if the unit is a little low on refrigerant. They will run too cold if slightly under charged or if the condensor is very dirty and the heat can not be exhuasted.

Is it ok to replace outside unit of central air and heat and not the inside air handler ? The upstairs A/C( over 10 yrs old) is not keeping up with South Texas heat. The temp upstairs climbs to 84-86...


I'm assuming you have had a competent Air Conditioning contractor look your unit over.if you trust your A/C contractor, why don't you work with them towards an answer? I would get an air flow and sizing analysis, a full equipment service/performance check, and see if there is something simple causing this dilemma. Possibly low refrigerant charge,or you have a filter or coil restriction on the indoor unit. I've seen mold plug a coil solidly before. And due to new federal regulations on air conditioning efficiency and the phase-out of R-22, I would recommend that any replacement equipment be done in full, not part and parcel. The newer two stage energy star rated cooling and/or heat pump offerings are a fantastic solution for premium indoor comfort, and the government is offering powerful incentives right now if you're in the market.

My attic air conditioner will stay at 81 degrees in the hottest part of the day only when it is sunny when it is cloudy it works fine I have a small 900 sq foot ranch


if the difference in termperature is between 15 and 20 degrees between the inlet and outlet, the unit is doing all it can and is undersized. if not check for airflow problems, filters, dirty coils etc. and if that is all good, then there may be issues with the refrigerant charge

I just had new vents run in the basement and even though they are closed, it will not cool the upstairs. It is 80 degrees upstairs. What is the problem?


First when you add new vents make sure your unit is big enough to handle the extra load. If you have shut off your vents to the basement. and it does not cool you may have AC problem. Sounds like you need to get it checked. Ask for a free estimate before you commit anything. Remember if they add gas you have a leak and it should be found. Rus When your ac does not cool properly check filters float switch in unit. Breaker on outside unit. Take a thermometer and take a reading from the reurn to the closest vent you should have between 17 and 21 degrees diference across the coil. If you have electric heat or heat pump you may need have a heat sequencer stuckmkeeping part of the heat on during cool.

Hot Upstairs


A good heating guy should be able to balance your dampers to increase the airflow upstairs. Keep in mind heat rises. 2nd floors are the hardest to cool. You may need to add more returns to pull the heat down the the evaporator so it can be cooled. If you are lucky you may be able to adjust your blower up to a higher speed. You may have to even add some more supply airs. Check with your local building inspector. He may be able to give you a list of contractors in your area that would be good for this type of problem. Good luck>>>

LG Air Conditioner/Heat Unit spits cold air


I believe the "FP" probably stands for Freeze Protection and it's there to prevent your outside coil from freezing up and causing your head pressure to drop. To do this, it briefly has to reverse the cycle from heating to cooling. This is normal in a heat pump.

Goodman with 2 thermostats, freezes in summer, no heat in winter


is the system zoned? if so maybe the zoning control board to the damper motor is wired improperly. when a system freezez its because of 1- restricted air flow across coil, (maybe dirty filter) or 2-low refrigerant charge. again could depend on how its zoned.
