A coil freezing up is due to not enough air flow (dirty filter) low refrigerant charge ( a leak) or a restriction (kinked line) you probably have one of the first two check to see if there is a filter and the blower fan is operating if both of these are good you willhave to find someone who is certified to work with refrigerant to check your head and suction pressures

Armana APN14K-E portable AC freezes up


Lack of air flow or a lack of refrigerant are the two primary reasons why coils freeze. Clean the filter and the coil, if frost continues it is likely low on refrigerant.

Sounds like the contactor in the condensing unit is stuck. That is why it will not turn off when the thermostat is satisfied. If the inside air handler is not blowing and the outside condensing unit is running, then this will cause the inside coils to freeze up rather quickly.
The contactor is located in the outside condensing uni in the electrical compartment.
If it is sticking it will need to be replaced.

It's possible that there is gas leak causing part of the coil to freeze. The cost will depend where the leak is.

AC Fan doesn't blow cold air, frozen coil noticed outside, resetting power resolves temporarily


You need to call a reputable service technician.  The freezing up usually is associated with a low refrigerant charge or low air flow.  Check your return air filter and replace as needed.

Unit freezes up.......Freon Leak?


Your AC unit is low on refrigerant. It should be recharged. be sure to keep the filter cleaned all the time as well. If this is an inexpensive unit, it may be cheaper just to get another one, since a lot of people would charge around $100. to charge it. hope this helps you, Rick

Whirlpool Heat and Air Window Unit ACE184XRO- freezing up


This is only low freon. If the bottom coils freezes and frost over, you don't have enough freon to travel as liquid back to the compressor and boils right there and past this only cool gas .I'll advise you to get this fixed before you loose a compressor due to locking up by not cooling the compressor properly. Get in touch with an Ac man. this should only cost around $100:00

AC not producing cool air


If this is a newer system there will be a freeze sensor. It may be low on refrigerant. I would check the obvious things first. Are the filters and coils free of debris? Finally only set the temperature to your comfortable temp not lower as this can cause freezing too (generally not below 70 degrees)

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.

My ac unit


air conditioners freeze up for one of 2 reasons, #1 restricted air flow, is the filter, /orthe evaporator (cool) coil clean?
#2 it is low on freon, causing the coils to be colder than they should be.
