Your unit is low on freon. Take the unit to a service facility & have it recharged & the leak repaired. Note that ice formation may normal if the outside temperature is below 45-50F. If you must use it in the meantime, leaving the unit on fan only will melt the ice much faster.

Have haier HWRO5XCM air conditioner. Outside temp is 75 degrees and I have set on 76. Freezes up and spits ices and water. Help


Clean indoor filter , and coils in unit (you must remove from window and remove top from unit to expose coil, After cleaning coils prop up unit so it slopes to rear and spray back and forth at bottom of front coil until drain is clear . Never turn unit upside down , and do not get water inside of fan motor . Also clean evaporator blower wheel . With unit clean and drained out place in direct sunlight for at least 2 hours to completely dry before replacing top and reinstalling in window , or just drain out , reinstall and leave unit unplugged for at least 24 hours to dry before testing . If unit is clean and still icing , check to see if thermostat works (place object in front of unit to direct cold air from top of unit onto thermostat temperature sensor and compressor should cycle off, if not replace thermostat . If unit still ices you will need a pro to repair sealed system of unit or simply buy a new one .
Thanks,
Alex

HOW TO CLEAN THE INSIDE OF YOUR GARBAGE DISPOSAL.


Cleaning Your Garbage Disposal.

To improve the performance and longivity of your garbage disposal you should clean the iniside of the machine monthly. Gunk builds up inside of the disposal things suchas, grease, dirt, peels, etc... The following is extreemely effective in removing all types of material from your disposal and will also leave it smelling great.

FIRST STEP.
GRAB (2) ICE CUBE TRAYS FORM THE FREZER.
  1. CRACK THE CUBES FROM THE TRAYS AND PUT 6 TO 8 CUBES INSIDE THE DISPOSAL (THE DISPOSAL SHOULD BE OFF WHEN YOU ARE PUTTING THE ICE CUBES IN).
  2. AFTER PUTTING 6 TO 8 CUBES IN THE DISPOSAL TURN THE UNIT ON AND RUN TILL THE CUBES ARE GONE. REPEAT THIS UNTIL BOTH TRAYS OF CUBES ARE USED UP.
  3. AFTER THE ICE CUBES ARE GONE RUN THE DISPOSAL WITH HOT WATER RUNNING THROUGH IT FOR ABOUT HALF A MINUTE.
  4. AFTER RUNNING THE HOT WATER THROUGH THE DISPOSAL PEEL A LEMON. DISCARD THE PEEL IN THE TRASH. PLACE THE WHOLE PEELED LEMON IN THE DISPOSAL WITH THE DISPOSAL TURNED OFF. START RUNNING HOT WATER AGAIN AND TURN ON THE DISPOSAL. RUN THE DISPOSAL UNTIL THE LEMON IS GONE. TURN OFF THE HOT WATER AND RUN COLD WATER THROUGH THE DISPOSAL FOR A FEW SECONDS AND TURN OFF.
The inside of your disposal is now sparkling clean and smelling good. If you use your disposal a lot do this cleaning once a month. If you don't use your disposal much do it every 3 months. Your disposal will work and smell much better. THANK YOU.

It cools great when first turned on. After so many hours of cooling it stops cooling


Have you checked up in filter area at ceiling to see if fins are frozen or frosted bad? If they are dirty, they can cause frost/ice and AC goes in to fan only until frost/ice is gone. When did unit actually get a good cleaning last? Too many registers closed or blocked can cause freeze up as well. Does this unit have ducted or non-ducted system?

Shuts down and gives me failure E 1 on the card and will not start


E1 = The air filters need cleaning (after 720 Hours use)
It will shut down until you clean the filters & reset the E1 alarm code.
To do this you need to:
Pull the Air Con appliance lead out of the power outlet in the wall.
Remove & Clean the air filters & then put the cleaned filters back in machine
Before plugging back in you Push & Hold the Power button on the Unit
THEN while holding the power button you PLUG the lead back into the wall.
Keep Holding the power button until you hear the unit emit a beep (hold for approx 5 secs)
Then disconnect the power supply lead again.
Then Plug it back in again & turn on
It should be cleared & working well.
Good luck

After around an hour or so it starts to ice up and stops blowing cold


The problem you're having is generally caused by 2 things:

1. The air intake filter needs to be removed and cleaned.
2. Overly high humidity in your area.

Keeping the filter clean, will help the unit to move more air and slow the freezing process down, to where it will only be frost. Which is normal.

If the unit has not thawed, wait until it does before removing the filter to clean it. Be sure to turn the unit OFF & unplug it, before removing the filter.

Hope this helps you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

My everstar portable airconditioner is not cooling down my apartment at all, and there is ice forming in the back


Yep its soundss iced up shut it down and leave the fan on if you can. remover the filter and clean it you might have to wait for the ice to thaw from the coil to remove the filter. wash the filter out well set the thermstat to 70 degrees and leave it there, also close any unused rooms if possible check/ wash filter monthly

Esco Oasis 2700L dehumidifier ices up. Is there a filter to be cleaned and if so, how to I get to it?


Hi,

The most common cause of frost and ice buildup on a dehumidifier is because the unit is operating in temperatures that are too cold. Many dehumidifiers are not equipped to run at temperatures below 65 degrees Fahrenheit.
To fix this problem, Position the dehumidifier in an area where there is at least one foot of clearance around the unit in order to allow for proper air circulation during its operation. Close all windows, doors and other outside openings to make sure your unit isn't attempting to remove moisture from areas outside of the immediate room. Determine the temperature of the room by checking a nearby thermostat or by using a hand-held thermometer.

Check the filter for dirt and buildup. Unplug the unit from the electrical source and check the filter by opening the filter compartment. If the filter is dirty, it will restrict airflow through the unit and lead to freezing. Soleus recommends lightly vacuuming the surface of the filter to remove dirt. The filter also can be washed in warm water if it is extremely dirty. Once clean, place the filter back in its compartment. Allow for the ice to melt and then restart your dehumidifier.

Freezing of low pressure pipe 24 BTU


A line or coil freezing is a sign of restricted air flow or low on freon. Make sure the fan that circulates the cold air is working and the filter and coil at the filter are clean. A dirty coil can be cleaned with coil cleaner and a water hose. You will need to remove the unit and take it outside. (window units only) You can buy a bottle of coil cleaner at any hardware store. Follow the instructions on the bottle but basically you spray the coil until soaked wait 5 minutes and flush it clean with water from a hose. Repeat if necessary. Try not to get water and cleaner on the controls. Be careful water will be trapped in the unit you may want to tip it toword the back for 10 minutes or so and if possible let it set outside to dry. Reinstall the unit and put a clean filter on it and give it a try. If ice forms again it is low on freon and will require a repairman to fix it. Freon is a restricted item and you have to have a license to buy it. good luck..

Coils Ice Up and nothing is dehumidified


If the coil is clean, then have a tech check for a low charge. This will cause the coil to freeze up. Humidifers are known to lose gas and owners aren't told this so end up buying new one and scraping the old one. Trust me on this. I have seen this many times. I repair high end machinery as my business.

Ice in the unit


Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

You said, Left house for a while with unit running and when I returned little or no air was emmiited from unit, and when I removed back cover, solid sheet of ice!


Sounds like you have a coolant leak or the thermostat is malfunctioning.
You need to have the freon checked first to see it is not low.
This one reason that will make it freeze up .
let me know how much freon it took.

Please remember to leave a rating before you go!
Thank you
