SOURCE: Friedrich air conditioning - inside unit ice build up

Hi, Reduced air flow, low on freon or being continuously run during cooler weather such as at night. Some people turn their thermostat on 60 thinking that it will help get it cooler faster. They freeze up at night and don't get a chance to thaw during the day. It needs set no lower than 75 or so. The evaporator may be dirty. Don't know a lot about your particular unit but if the outside unit has the compressor and refrigerant lines running to it, The large refrigerant line should sweat all the way to the compressor if its fully charged. Please rate me if I have helped. Good luck kstfas

This is njormally an issue with oversizing but this should have manifested itself the 1st time you used it, unless you have relocated the unit. If you have reinstalled it in its original location and if you have cleaned the coils as required, then you have a low freon issue that only a professional should resolve.
Tip: If the ice is building up in 1 small area and not evenly across the complete evaporator coil, then you definitely are low on freon.

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.

If you already had the coils and filter cleaned and the blower is OK, that only leaves the refrigerant charge.
You are probably low on refrigerant.

Electrolux american fridge freezer cooling problem


There is a defrost timer on the unit. It is supposed to come on and melt the ice that forms on the coils in the evaporator. IF you get a lot of ice built up or something is wrong with the timer, it wont melt the ice or it wont come back on to cool the unit.

Freezer running, ice maker not producing, hot in middle divder.


The dividing section should be warm, to keep unit from sweating. (by design). Cleaning under the refrigerator was what cooled it down. You cleaned the condenser. The condenser allows the refrigerent to cool down. When it was dirty, the condenser could not get enough air to cool down.
