Front of air conditioner is wet and ice is forming behind the filter.

It's probably low on refrigerant charge from a leak. Since it's a window unit, toss it!

The lines on my air conditioner keep freezing and its not getting cold but the compressor keeps coming on

If your vents inside are blowing normal and your filters are clean, more than likely you are low on refrigerant and it will have to be charged. Also check to make sure the fan motor outside is working when the system is on. Hope this helps!

There is a wall of ice inside the air conditioner behind the filter.

If you haven't already, tunr the unit OFF & unplug it. Allow to totally thaw. Then remove the air intake filter and clean it thoroughly. It is probably clogged, which is what caused the unit to freeze up. But, do not attempt this, until the unit has totally thawed.

Hope helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

There are 2 problems. 1. There is ice build up in the back. I have to turn it off and let the ice melt and then start all over. What can I do to prevent this? 2, How do I get to the filter to clean...

The filter is probably the real problem. There isnt enough air flow.
I am assuming this is a window unit. So the filter tends to be right behind the area pulling air into the unit inside. This is so the dirt and lint wont get the evaporator coil dirty.

Cord and plug where A/c unit is plugged into is getting ver warm and ice is forming on coils behind air filter after cleaning filter as recommended! how can i solve these issues?

Your unit needs a plug that is on it's own circuit. As it draws alot of amps. So anyother device take it out of the circuit. Now that is to fix the warm plug problem. And the ice up coils is another problem, if you can take it out of window and remove the cover can you examine the coils? Sounds like it needs cleaned very well. with garden hose and let it dry out good before setting it back in window. Let me know how it goes okay..... ken

Make sure your air filters are clean and you are getting enough air flow. If you are operating it with the fan in automatic and it shuts off when the compressor cycles off change it to continuous circulation.
Fan on.

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.
