Question about Heating & Cooling
Concur, the coolant could be low and it will cause the coils to freeze up. However, other things can this is as well.
I had the exact same problem on my unit. The first couple of times it happened, I would defrost the coils and it would work for 2-3 days. Over the course of a week the blower motor quit working. You could see it trying to start, it would move 1-2" and stop. Experts will tell you the starter capacitor(s) are bad. This is true 95% of the time. The part they leave out is, the starter caps for the variable speed blower motor is a part of the ECM module located on the back of the motor. In some cases, the captivators will show obvious damage and can be replaced by a DIY with a soldering iron and about $10 in parts. In my case, the ECM module had to be replaced, cost $400. The only website I could find that sold Trane parts directly to the public was www.expertappliance.com.

The coil will freeze when the system is low on R-22. The system is low because someone never fully charged it and/or it has a leak...
