You have iced up your unit. Turn Tstat to off fan to on. This will thaw unit in a couple of hours. NOW The reason for the ice up condition has to be found. Low on gas,stopped up filter,stopped up evap.(inside) indoor fan inop. Start with simple first check filer,If you can see the evap coil see if it is stopped up. To charge the unit if low on gas you have to call a service tech. Ask for free estimate so you will know up front what it will cost. Remember if you add gas there is a leak. Make sure your tstat setting is not to low. If the evap coil is dirty you can clean this yourself. Use a stool brush with soft fiber. spray with 409 let soak and brush clean your coil. Rus

Ice build up bottom of the freezer


You do not have enough air flow. make sure you do not block the vents inside the freezer and also around the outside of the freezer. It needs to extract the heat from inside to keep it cold. If you have no air flow, in and out, ice will build up.

Brand New 2 weeks old 4 ton Trane compressor leaks a lot of water onto pad


If the unit is running in cold weather than there is ice building up on the coils located outside. This is normal in that the unit is running in heat pump mode heating inside and cooling outside, After the unit detects the ice build up it briefly reverses the cycle heating the outside coils melting(defrosting) the ice which you observe as water on the pad.

The video gives you an example of the defrost cycle!

Goldman capf3636b6. Fan outside is running blowing cold air to the outside.Inside is making a humming sound but not running.If I turn it off all of it stopsThere is some ice visible on the pipes


System needs to be thawed out, so turn it off before something else breaks, cause pipes are probably plugged and stopping any movement inside the system, Try using a blow dryer on high heat to help with the thaw out of the pipes with the ice build-up , then leave it off for a couple of hours and then try to turn it on again see if the unit in the house is running or blowing cold air again. Turn it on HIGH...!!!!

Have haier HWRO5XCM air conditioner. Outside temp is 75 degrees and I have set on 76. Freezes up and spits ices and water. Help


Clean indoor filter , and coils in unit (you must remove from window and remove top from unit to expose coil, After cleaning coils prop up unit so it slopes to rear and spray back and forth at bottom of front coil until drain is clear . Never turn unit upside down , and do not get water inside of fan motor . Also clean evaporator blower wheel . With unit clean and drained out place in direct sunlight for at least 2 hours to completely dry before replacing top and reinstalling in window , or just drain out , reinstall and leave unit unplugged for at least 24 hours to dry before testing . If unit is clean and still icing , check to see if thermostat works (place object in front of unit to direct cold air from top of unit onto thermostat temperature sensor and compressor should cycle off, if not replace thermostat . If unit still ices you will need a pro to repair sealed system of unit or simply buy a new one .
Thanks,
Alex

My goldstar 6000 btu window ac is dripping into the house


Sounds like you're using it when the outside temp is cooler than the inside temp. when this happens, frost will build up on the condensor. Turn the unit off until the ice melts off with a shim under the unit tilting it back towards the outside of the window to drain. If it continues to drip after melting all the ice off and letting it dry out, you have a small leak in the condensor, (unit must be old or worn out) that the freon pressure has leaked out causing it to condensate more. A good checklist would be to check the level of the unit, make sure the coils are clean and not bent, the age of the unit and for small areas of corrosion or white marks on the condensor before replacing it.

Food not getting cold in the fridge


There are many reasons for that to happen.
Check your refrigerator for a thick build up of ice in the freezer, you need to defrost the fridge.
A poor circulation of cold air will happen if thick build up of ice is not defrost.
Do not block cold circulation with so much food inside, you need to organize it.
Check temp control to lower degrees or high number.
A door gasket leak will cause cold air to flow outside the fridge.
A system tubing clogged dirt inside the copper tubing will also cause it, but this one need to be check by a service technician.
I hope I give you idea for your refrigerator problem.

Outside unit iced up how do de-ice


As with the simplest way to thaw ice is with heat.

If you are running this unit in cooling and have ice outside, then you most likely have a freeze up inside as well. If this is a heat pump unit, then frost is normal during operation, however, ice build-up is an indication of a problem.

There are 2 effective ways to remove the ice build-up. The first is the simplest. Get your water hose and hose it down. Be sure to turn off the breakers to the unit and avoid spraying the electrical compartment. If you have the ability to hook the hose into a hot water line, then this process with be extremely fast. Let the unit sit for about 20 minutes to dry out and turn it back on.


The second can be a little more complicated if your not tech savoy. You can turn the system on in the cooling mode. This will make the outdoor coil the condenser section. Then, either block the airflow through the coils with an object, put an object over the fan to increase pressure, or if you can, disconnect the fan so it does not run. This method is essentially the same as a defrost cycle.

As with any failure, you can fix the problem at hand, but it will return. After you get past this, your real challenge will be determining what caused the freeze-up.


If you were running your system in cooling already, then you will need to ensure the system has de-iced on the inside as well.

Freezer staying cold but fridge is getting hot


More likely than not there is a blockage of ice bettween the freezer and the refridgerator. most fridges work to get the freezer cold as a priority.Then the cold freezer air is circulated throughout the rest of the unit to keep the fridge cold. Thats why you may hear a fan running in the fridge unit while the compressor is not on. Unplug and open the doors to warm the inside. Look at the plastic piece bettween the two units and remove. See if there is ice build up and use a hair dryer to melt, dry area out and restart the unit by plugging back in or turning temp dial. Hope this helps.

inside the fridge there is a cold radiator which has filled with condensation or water from freezing it when say cleaned out the fridge this can be remedied by letting set for a few days outside in the sun so that water can evaporate properly or you can call a repair man and he can pull out frost radiator inside and defrost all the water out by dry wet vac and heater dryer

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
