MY AIRCON IS BUILDING UP SOME ICE

WHEN I NOTICED THAT MY AIRCON WAS BUILDING UP SOME ICE, I HAD IT CLEANED AS IT IS ALREADY DUE, BY AN AUTHORIZED TECHNICIAN HOPING THAT THE PROBLEM WOULD BE SOLVED. HOWEVER, I FOUND OUT DAYS LATER, THAT ICE STILL BUILDS UP . THE AIRCON STILL COOLS UP MY ROOM,BUT NOT AS MUCH AS BEFORE. I WOULD KNOW THAT ICE IS BUILDING UP WHEN I COULD NOT FEEL THE BLOWER AS I GO NEAR THE AIRCON. I WOULD THEN PUT THE AIRCON TO FAN SETTING THUS MAKING THE TEMPERATURE RISE (HOT) CAUSING THE ICE TO MELT AND DROP. I WOULD THEN HEAR SOME CRANKING NOISE AS THE ICE POUNDS AGAINST THE SUCTIONING BLADE OF THE FAN MOTOR. THENAFTER,I WILL AGAIN PLACE THE SETTING TO COOL. THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR ABOUT A MONTH AND FOR THE REASON THAT MY AIRCON STILL COOLS UP MY ROOM ,I HAVE NOT CONTACTED ANY AIRCON MECHANIC YET. PLEASE GIVE ME SOME TIPS AS TO THE POSSIBLE CAUSES OF THE PROBLEM THAT I MAY BE GUIDED IN FINDING THE SOLUTION BEFORE I HIRE A REPAIRMAN.THANK YOU AND MORE POWER.

Sounds like it's low on charge, dirty coil. Is this a ductless unit or window?

SOURCE: My KOLIN window type remote control AIRCON is building up ICE

If you already had the coils and filter cleaned and the blower is OK, that only leaves the refrigerant charge.
You are probably low on refrigerant.

Just did a defrost due to large build up of ice. I took off the back panel of freezer and found fan was encased in ice.


No this time the fan was the cause of the ice build up and the fridge will be damaged if the fan problem is not resolved. What is the model number of your fridge?
APPLIANCE 911

GE Profile refrigerator Model # PFSF6PKXCWW motor is noticeably louder


if you are talking about the motor in the freezer the ice build up could be causing the fan to beat against the ice... could be a defrost cycle problem,,,, if ice is building up on rear freezer wall you have a defrost cycle problem and the ice is forminf around fan causing fan blades to hit the ice (loud noise)

Carrier split unit aircon mdl 42P100c has water dripping from the unit mounted internally onto floor.


Due to non maintenance of a/c. Col and air filter dust blocked. Due to this, some time ice formation over the coil will be there. Clean air filter, coil and blower wheel. And also drain pan.
If you see any ice formation over the coil after service, it's meant for short of gas. Thanks.

01 dodge 2500 v8. Air conditioner started out strong, blowing cold air..temporarily would start blowing warm and then back to ice cold...Noticed when stopping and turning corners a hissing noise coming...


Hi. Have your car aircon evaporator cleaned. Check also the drain hose. All water should go out of the car through the drain hose. There might be something clogging up the hose that is why water will run out the floor and that causes also the aircon to work intermittently.

Have a good one!

Blueway air conditioner not fully cooling


Check the radiator for dirt, and check if the radiator fan is functioning. Do you notice any wetness or ice build up on the outside copper pipes. If so, suggest calling a refrig. tech. to add gas. The gas used is R22 on most aircons.

Panasonic Inverter aircon E24DKR icing up inside unit


Yes, if the filters are clean, the coils are clean, and it is still freezing up in cooling mode, then it is low on refridgerant.

SAMSUNG RS253BAWW NOT WORKING


the ice maker wont cycle untill the temp of the ice is around 10 degrees so if the freezer is at 15 or 20 due to some other malfunction then you will see the maker full of ice but it wont harvest and make another batch. so you could have a sensor bad, control malfunction, refrigeration issue, compressor, defrost system malfunction(you mentioned ice build up)
