When the refrigerant piping ices the cause is usually low or refrigerant (Freon is Dupont's name for Refrigerant) or the evaporator coil is not getting enough air flow thru it. It would be best to have a qualified technician test your system.

Why won't outside fan turn off


the contactor is probably stuck shut you can check to see if it is its the big black thing that has all your power coming in and going out to unit to run fan and compressor. If it doesn't shut off and your inside unit does then it will freeze the lines and coil and water will drip when it starts to thaw out.

Sounds like water in the line. You could try wrapping the gas line
with insulation, like it was a water pipe.
Can't the gas co. flush the line? OR suggest a fix for a valued customer?

Model Number: UACC-036JAS The unit works fine. The problem is it doesn't shut down after the specified temperature has been reached. The furnace blower shuts down, but the ac unit keeps on running....


Hello, usually a stuck contactor coil will cause this on the outside unit. When the outdoor unit runs continously and the indoor blower does not run no heat is being absoebed by the evaporator coil and thus the line freezes. Replaceing the contactor will fix the problem.

Goodman CAPF4860C6AA not cooling properly


It sounds like it needs to be charged. What you need to do is shut the system down for 24 hours in order to let the unit thaw. Then if you are not EPA certified, you need to have a repair tech come out and charge your system. That should be it unless you have a leak in the lines.

If coils are clean and blower is working properly,
then you're probably low on freon.

Icetube leaking water inside freezer and outside back of freezer


Your refrigerator needs a new water valve and possibly some new water tubing. You can find the correct part by going to sears.com and entering the refrigerator's model number in the parts search field. When you have the valve, shut off the water to the refrigerator. If you're not sure how to do that, just shut off water to the entire house. Be sure to run the kitchen sink after you shut the water off to relieve any presure and double check that the water is completely shut off.

Be sure to unplug the refrigerator before you start this project...water and electricity aren't friends! Using a 1/4" nut driver or socket, remove the cardboard or metal cover off the back of the refrigerator. Follow the water line to the water valve, unscrew the nut going to the valve, and remove the water line. There are 2 screws holding the water valve to the refrigerator cabinet; remove the screws and gently pull the valve out. Unplug the electrical connectors and remove the water lines. Take the new valve, connect the water lines and electrical plugs, screw the valve back into place, attach the water line and turn the water back to to test for leaks.

Since the valve has been leaking inside your freezer it would be a great idea to clean out your freezer and let the water tube and lines thaw. Find a place for your frozen food, unplug the unit and let it sit overnight with the doors open. Don't forget to remove the ice bin, as these make quite the mess when the ice melts. Once it's thawed, plug it back in, make sure the water is on and not leaking and enjoy!

Doors keep freezing shut in michigan weather


From you description I suspect water is getting into the door latch. Then it freezes and stops the latch from moving properly. The solution is to keep the water out and the best way to do that is to make sure all the rubber seals around the window and door are working properly and in good condition.

Can't pump gas into tank when the outside temp is below freezing


That is an issue I have never heard before, but I would pour some gas line antifreeze into your tank. It sounds like you have some trapped water in the tank.

Water line in freezer for ice maker keeps freezing


I have had this happen to me before. What happens is the water fill valve
does not completely close and the tube will freeze shut as a small ammount of water will continuosly dribble into the tube when the valve shuts off causing the tube to freeze solid. I tried to clean the valve but that did not work so I replaced it and that ended the problem. A new valve is not expensive.

My AC unit keeps freezing up on the copper lines going into the house from the outside unit. It also freezes up on the inside lines and the air is not cooling my home down.


Operate your air conditioner with the fan in the on position. But first turn the fan on, turn the temp up or shut the cooling off. Your coil is more than likely frozen over. At night when outside temperature drops the refrigerant pressure and temperature in the system also drops. This action can cause icing of the cooling coil, with the fan in automatic everything shuts down at the end of a cooling cycle. Thus no air movement to melt ice on previous cooling cycle.
