Air conditioner is freezing/icing up inside

We have a goldstar 10000BTU window air conditioner. It works great most days...But if it is left on for long periods of time the inside ices up, and it won't blow cold air anymore....Why is it icing up??

Dirty coils (i'm sure you already cleaned the filter ). The coils over time (Behind the filter) get some dust and dirt trapped in between the fins and restrict air flow causing icing for the coils. Do not wipe the fins as they will bend over restricting air floe and you may ruin the unit. You should clean the coil with degreaser (Detergent type) and you usually have to take it out of the window and take it out of the metal cabinet to wash the coils.

Unit cools great but when extremly hot weather occurs it eventually freezes up.


dirty filters in the indoor unit.As the ambient temperature rises the unit will work harder and longer,its fine when its just a normal day because the evaporator coil wont have time to ice up as the compressor will cycle off before the coil freezes totally,but during extreme ambient temperatures the coil will ice up as the compressor will continue running to reach set-point causing the coil to ice up

Wall ac unit keeps freezing up inside.


No! You will not likely find any service on a product which has very little value. Frosting will sometimes happen if the outside temperature is to low. The outside ambient temperature is directly related to the pressures inside the refrigerating system. The lower the outside temperature is the lower the pressures will be in the cooling end of the air conditioner. In mechanical refrigeration pressures and temperatures are directly related.

Air conditioner freezing up


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.

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.
