Why is it building up ice on three coils?

Hi, for your air conditioner you'll have refrigerant coming from the compressor (cold) to the coils - when it leaves those coils - the refrigerant has basically absorbed that heat - and it's on its way out to the evaporator - sometimes the other set of lines actually gets hot. If you have ice on your coils - could you check your fan and make sure it's operating correctly. The absolute only thing keeping those coils from icing up is the fan drawing air over the coils - no air/not enough air flow - it doesn't function properly and your coils will ice up.

You have an iced up evaporator (cooling coil). This coil is usually located in the freezer section. A small fan distributes air across this coil and into the refrigerator. If coil is block with ice, no air can be blown across the coil. Coil is blocked with ice due to failed defrost timer on main circuit board or a failed defrost heater.

Iced up coils

Iced up coils always means a lack of heat load on that coil. This may be due to fan failure, dirty blades on the fan or "squirrel cage", dirty air filter. If the outdoor coil in a heat pump application is iced over, possibilities are: fan failure, dirty fan blades, outdoor ambient temperature too low, or failed defrost timer or ice sensor.

Coil icing up

make sure the filter is very clean. make sure all supply grills are unblocked and open. make sure the indoor fan is blowing. icing coil is normal during heating mode the system will defrost using a sensor. sometimes during cold wet weather the coil will stay iced up. sometimes in cooling mode when it is cool outside 60 degrees or less the coil will ice. low freon will make the coil ice up ,also defrost control not working will cause the coil to ice up

Ice buildup on the coil and ice buildup on freezer floor

you will have to unclogg water/hairdryer..flexible tubing to push out the clog. the ice on evap coil bothers me though. do all the coils get frosty white(close the door for 10 minutes then check) I fear they aren't and you have a freon leak.

Ice on the coil fins of my Window AC unit......

set your unit to fan mode only, to thaw the ice, after the ice melts, look at your evaporator coil, see if its dirty, if its dirty, then you might just need a good cleaning. if the coil is clean, look at your thermostat setting. it should not be all the way cold. the compressor would run continously and it would freeze the coil. third, the refrigerant system could be partially clogged up or it lacks refrigerant. these problems initiate freezing of the coil.
