Not staying cool

sounds like it is either low on Freon or the compressor is going out. The blowing ice cold is an indicator that it may be freezing up because the low Freon. when it stops blowing cold, turn it to fan only mode and see if it gets colder again. If that is the case then the unit is low on freon and freezing up. I know that sounds confusing but that is how AC works. The low freon pressure means the gas is expanding too fast and the air flow cannot take up the cold from the evaporator fast enough. Turning the compressor off and keeping the fan on will alow the room air to take up the cold.

I have a 2006 Gulfstream Cavalier 8'x 32' Fema Travel Trailer with a Dometic Duo Therm AC unit which I have recently replaced the fan motor on. Had the dealership bench test motor prior to lea

There is ice forming on the evaporator coils. This is either from a low freon charge or a leak in the seals or windows and doors. Could also be that the drains are not working and water is building up and freezing

I have a samsung 1.5 ton split a.c. which was purchased in the year 2008. Till now we never faced any problem with our a.c. but, now we have limited our use of a.c. but still our monthly electricity bill...

the evaportor is frozen up turn off air but leave the fan on to defrost the ice then replace filter if it still freezes then you need some refrigerant AKA freon

Carrier A/C unit not cooling..but freezing refrigerant tube.

if the fan isnt running or you dont get enough return air (on the furnace) the coil will freeze up or if you have it set too low it will freeze up overnight, make sure your filters are clean, and that you dont have any return vents (air sucking in) covered with rugs and whatnot. If you have animals, the coil (on top of the furnace) could be clogged with hair, even though you change your filters it still gets clogged with hair and must be cleaned. if your coil was froze up you need to make sure it is completely thawed out, run the fan in the on setting with the a/c off until you dont see or hear any more water then turn it on again. and finially make sure when the furnace goes off (thermostat clicks and is satisfied) the outdoor condenser goes off as well the contactor could have been stuck in the on position. if you cant fix it call someone who can when your coil freezez up it can cause slugging in your compressor (liquid entering the compressor) which will destroy it !!!!!!!!!!!

My A/C blows out hot air every couple days

The only problem I could think of is that the air conditioning needs to be recharged as they call it because over time it will run out. You can usually go to a place like Firestone and they will do it (depending on how much you need) for around 100 or you can find a way to do it yourself you would buy either R134A or Freeze 12 that might be harder to get but cheaper

Leaking & icing on inside coil Rheem Air Conditioner

Dirty coil. Low refrigerant. Bad fan motor.
These 3 things cause the problem described.
I charge $450 to remove and clean the coil. However, I am not in your zipcode.

It's spitting ice crystals when turned on, and is very noisy.

I'm in a similar situation with a physical neccessity for a/c, year round, even though I live in temperate New Jersey. My husband is an A/C / Refrigeration tech & here's some things you can try to fix your Haier A/C.
1.) Make sure you keep the area where the filter is clean, if you aren't using a filter, you are clogging the air flow much quicker, which can lead to freeze ups.
2.) Due to how shoddy things are made now-a-days & with the storm coming through, you may have a conked out compressor or may have a small refrigeration leak, which can also cause freeze ups.
3.) Make darned sure that the unit is level, if you find it is not, leave your unit off for at least 24 hours for the refrigeration gas & oil in the system to level off.
Sadly, I do not know the model or type of Haier A/C you have & as I'd mentioned, things are no longer made to last like they once were & to get 3 years from a newer model is likely to be the best you can hope for. Haier is fairly decent with wanting to keep up customer morale & if it's a newer unit (younger than 18 months), they may help you to repair it for free or low cost. Good luck with that!

Air conditioner

If the air flow is restricted or partially blocked (dirty cooling fins, filter etc), ice will form inside becaue the air stays in ithe cooling coil or fils for a long period of time. Lack of freon will not cause Ice formation because there is not enough cooling power.
