Outside compressor turned it self on and pipes are covered in ice, without the Inside air con coming on. I have not had the air con running for two days. to turn off the compressor I had to turn it off at the main switch board as it appears to be hard wired.

Hey mate,
Have you cleaned the filters on the indoor unit. Check the evaporator(in door unit) coils for build up and debris. Check the out door unit coil for leaves and debris. IF they all are clear. Could be low on refrigerant, faulty metering device or a blockage in the refrigeration system.

Yes, if the filters are clean, the coils are clean, and it is still freezing up in cooling mode, then it is low on refridgerant.

On the outdoor unit the fan should not be running, on the indoor unit the fan should be running. If you then check the outdoor unit with fan not running, you should be able to hear clearly that the compressor is actually working. If this is all correct, it is possible that your fourway reverse valve is seeping and needs to be replaced.

Depending on what type of Thermostat you have, it is usually as simple as setting a jumper for Electric heat instead of gas.
If you have a digital Thermostat then turn off the power to the Air handler and remove the thermostat. Look closely at the small jumpers and make sure your jumpers are set to elect. and not gas so the fan can run in heat mode.
If you have a standard heat cool mercury switch then same as before with the power and unscrew the thermostat, and where the yellow wire is connected if there is a factory with on the yellow, then move the factory wire to the (A) and put the yellow wire back on the (Y).

Good Luck!

Goldman capf3636b6. Fan outside is running blowing cold air to the outside.Inside is making a humming sound but not running.If I turn it off all of it stopsThere is some ice visible on the pipes


System needs to be thawed out, so turn it off before something else breaks, cause pipes are probably plugged and stopping any movement inside the system, Try using a blow dryer on high heat to help with the thaw out of the pipes with the ice build-up , then leave it off for a couple of hours and then try to turn it on again see if the unit in the house is running or blowing cold air again. Turn it on HIGH...!!!!

Central air compressor is running but no air is blowing inside?


II assume you mean the outside unit is running. if so turn off your system immediately. If no air is coming out of the registers, the blower motor in the air handler is not running and/or the system has froze up. Check to see if you have any ice on the large copper line coming out of your inside unit. There will be rubber insulation on it but just pull it back on the pipe right at the inside unit and you should be able to see ice. Take the service panel off the air handler(inside unit) and turn fan on at the thermostat. There is an "on" and "auto" fan switch on the thermostat. Go back and look in the air handler and see if the fan is running .If it is then you have a refrigerant problem. If the fan is not running then it will be a run capacitor, bad motor, no 24 volt power to relay, bad relay, bad thermostat, bad board if fan relay is solid state, or a bad conductor from the thermostat. Hope this helps. You will probably have to get an a/c tech to troubleshoot either of the above problems more thoroughly to correct it permanently. If the system is froze up and the fan is working then the system is low on refrigerant. This means the system has a leak. The leak will have to be found and repaired before the system is recharged or the refrigerant will just leak back out again.

Dehumdifier not collecting water.


It may be that the humidity level or temperature in the room where your dehumidifier is located is too low.

When the outdoor temperature is below 50 F, the indoor air will be dry even when the air inside is warm, therefore when it's cold outside the dehumidifier may collect little or no water.

Air conditioners will also remove moisture from the room, even if it's hot and humid outside, resulting in little or no moisture collecting in the dehumidifier bucket.

Some dehumidifiers have a deicer which turns off the compressor but keeps the fan running. When the compressor is off, moisture is not removed from the air. The deicer turns off the compressor when the room temperature is cold.

Some dehumidifiers do not have a deicer. If the room temperature is low enough, ice may form on the evaporator coil. The ice prevents the dehumidifier from removing and collecting water. If ice forms on coils, unplug dehumidifier until ice melts and room temperature rises.

The filter (on some models) may be dirty or clogged. If so, clean the filter. For instructions on cleaning the filter.

I hope this help to solve, if this answer solve it, remember to rate it. Good luck.

Outside unit iced up how do de-ice


As with the simplest way to thaw ice is with heat.

If you are running this unit in cooling and have ice outside, then you most likely have a freeze up inside as well. If this is a heat pump unit, then frost is normal during operation, however, ice build-up is an indication of a problem.

There are 2 effective ways to remove the ice build-up. The first is the simplest. Get your water hose and hose it down. Be sure to turn off the breakers to the unit and avoid spraying the electrical compartment. If you have the ability to hook the hose into a hot water line, then this process with be extremely fast. Let the unit sit for about 20 minutes to dry out and turn it back on.


The second can be a little more complicated if your not tech savoy. You can turn the system on in the cooling mode. This will make the outdoor coil the condenser section. Then, either block the airflow through the coils with an object, put an object over the fan to increase pressure, or if you can, disconnect the fan so it does not run. This method is essentially the same as a defrost cycle.

As with any failure, you can fix the problem at hand, but it will return. After you get past this, your real challenge will be determining what caused the freeze-up.


If you were running your system in cooling already, then you will need to ensure the system has de-iced on the inside as well.

Line to evaporator iced over


I am not exactly sure as to the type of unit you have. If it is a ductless split system (inside unit on the wall, never seen Lennox make one) you could be low on charge, the metering device to drop the refrigerant pressure is in the outdoor unit. If this is a whole house system, you may have a restriction in the outdoor section somewhere. If you look into the unit while it is running, try to find a filterdrier. It is a cylinder soldered into the small line. You can also see exactly where the ice starts, that is where your restriction is. Let me know what you find out.

My air conditional unit outside ,fans turns on but the unit compressor wont turn on,just stopped working this morning.i turned the thermostat to 72 but only the fan on the outside unit comes on and it is...


Somethings aperson cant fix without a service tech. First it could be wire burnt of capacitor going to compressor. Second it could be bad capacitor. There is a dual capacitor on the ouside unit one side says herm that runs the compressor. Turn power off to check to see if wire is burnt of the herm terminal or the C ternminal. Wire burnt off compressor common terminal.. Could be locked up compressor. Unless you know how to troubleshoot unit. You may have to call service tech. Cost if bad cap. is about 100 to 150. But unit wont run without it. Rus

Air con


Could be the thermostat or the low voltage line to the outside. Usually a dog chews through it or the weedeater hits it and breaks connection. Turn on cool, go outside and see if it gets 24 volts to the two wires going to contactor (have to take off cover to get to it) DO NOT TOUCH THE CONTACTOR IT HAS 240 V AT ALL TIMES, unless disconnect is thrown, so turn it off. If you aren't getting anything, then it's either the low voltage wire broken somewhere or the thermostat malfunctioning. Make sure you turn off the inside unit before messing with thermostat or you will pop the transformer. If it pulls the contactor in, and you still aren't getting anything, then check for voltage on the load side of contactor (opposite from the inlet or lead side). If you are and you hear a hum from the compressor and the condensing fan motor is running, then it's your compressor. You'll have to remove the top cover to do the next step. Check to see if it when to ground by using a meter set on resistance and with the connector to the compressor removed, put one lead on one of the copper pipes going up to it and touch the other lead against any or all of the pinouts on the compressor. If you get a reading, it went to ground and you will need a new compressor or whole new condensing unit, depending on the age of the one you have now.
