My A/C blowing air, but it is not cool. It has started freezing up. We just replaced the air filters and since then it is freezing up. We even gently cleaned the a/c coils before replacing the filters. ...


Hello, sounds like it is either a low charge or lack of airflow, what type of filter are you using? sometimes those filters that claim to be super effecient will actually cut down on your airflow and cause the ac to freeze up.

Frigidaire central unit freezing up leaking


The coil freezing can be caused by a couple of things. 1) Not enough air flow over the coil or 2) A low refrigerant charge. First make sure that the indoor fan is running. Then check your air filters and make sure your evaporator coil is clean. After that you can get the refrigerant charge checked. The lower the refrigerant pressure is, the lower it's boiling point is and when it gets below 32F then the evaporator coil and usually the low pressure line freeze up. The leaking you were talking about is probably from the ice melting. Hope this helps.

Central air blowing warm air


2 things could be happening. 1, inside unit needs filter changed and coil cleaned. 2, unit is low on freon. A/C tech should be able to check for both. You can check the a/c coil to clean it yourself but to check for low freon this will have to be done by a a/c tech due to the complexity of the system. the ice is caused by a series of things however, check the a/c filter and the coil located behind the filter. this coil should be free of any debris. if you have indoor pets sometimes the hair clogs the coil causing the freeze up.. To clean the coil you need to get a small weed killing sprayer.. At the a/c supply house you can purchase cleaning solution that is easy to use an safe for the enviroment also leaves your house smelling great. if the coil inside has been cleaned check to see if the coil outside is clean if not you can clean it with a water hose by spraying the coils out. MAKE SURE TO KILL THE POWER beforehand. Also spry the water onto the coils only and spray in the oppisite direction of air flow. Have system checked by a/c tech if you do not feel comfortable doing any of these suggestions

Lines freeze in central air unit


If you are not certified to do H V A C then I highly recommend that you call in the pro's. However there is something you as a homeowner can do. Start by checking the air filter. if it is too dirty it will slow the air flow across the coils and cause the coils ti ice. The line freezing is a sign that your coils are beginning to ice or already have. This is also true if the coils are dirty. You can check this by removing the air filter and using a flashlight to look up inside of the air handler. If they are dirty then you can clean them with a solution of water, mild dish detergent and a soft bristle brush. Be sure to rinse them thuroly. If this does not fix the freezing problem then you may very well have a small leak and need to have some refrigerant added. hope this helps. Good luck.

My central air unit keeps freezing up on the inside


1) locate the A-Coil (A-frame) inside the furnace. It is usually located in the furnace supply plenum located on the "down" side of the furnace plenum. If it is very dirty, there will be poor air flow generally in the house. This can cause the A/C to "freeze up" as the refrigerant is not getting enough heat to convert the refrigerant to a gaseous state.

2) The unit may be low on freon (or whatever refrigerant you are using). Contact a serviceman to check the unit.

Air condition unit will not cool and the coils freeze up in just a few min.


Is the inside fan running properly? Typically if the condensor outside is working, but the fan inside is not, the coils will freeze up quickly. For the system to work properly, you need to be blowing warmer air over the coils inside the house- that then brings the temp of the refrigerant in the coils back up, and the loop continues. If the fan inside is not working, check to make sure that the circuit breaker is not tripped.
