Icing is almost always caused by one or both of two situations. Either low airflow due to clogged filter or evaporator and/or or low on refrigerant. If the filter and the evaporator (the radiator looking coil right inside the case) look clean, then the unit probably has a leak and has lost refrigerant.

Does this air conditioner need water

Air conditioners don't need water. if it is runnibng properly and blowing cold air it will produce water on the condensing coil. Look at the coil. If you see a lot of ice, turn the unit off and wait until the ice melts. If the ice returns it is probably low on freon. This must be taken care of by a licensed air conditioning tecnician.

My air conditioner line is freezing and no air is coming out of the vents

Shut it down for a few hours and let it De-ice the evap coil is iced up/ check your filters and change them.. Oh to speed things up a bit. Just shut the cooling off and leave the fan on that will speed it up. You should see ice or condensate on the line. But set your stat to 74 and close doors to rooms not in use..

Why will a room air conditioner ice up and can I fix the problem?

Freon leak, How new is it. If you still have a warranty take it back and have them replace it. If it is not under warranty you can try a few tricks. Clean the outside coils with a strong blast of water with the unit off and make sure the filter is cleaned

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.
