It's forming ice


The condenser, cold coil, is getting too cold, "freezing up. Usually this is because the small tube that comes out of the temp. control is not in good contact with the coil. This problem is aggravated if the fan is run on too low a setting. To clear the problem cut off the cooling and just let the fan run. The warm air will eventually melt the ice and you will suddenly start getting a much larger volume of air flowing. Now turn on the cooling cycle and try operating the blower at a higher speed.

MY GE ROOM AIR CONDITIONER AGH08AJG1 SWITCH BETWEEN COOL AND FAN EVERY 5 MINUTES APROXIMATELY NEVER SATYS COOLING UNTIL THE DESIRED TEMPERATURE IS REACHED


Check and clean the filter if found to be dirty. It is usually behind a decorative panel below the cold air output grates (when the cold air is on the top front).

The filter is behind the large, rectangular, slotted front panel. The evaporator coil is behind the filter. The fan behind the evaporator pulls the room air through the filter and evaporator coil where it is cooled and dehumidified. It is then discharged through the grates on the top of the front.

Direct the airflow from the unit up and away or left / right to prevent the cool air from being drawn in the front of the unit (this is where the thermostat sensor is located). Use the highest fan speed to help force the air away from the intake, too. Inspect the condenser and evaporator coils (condenser is outside and evaporator is directly behind the filter. Clean if dirty or icing over. Be sure to install a filter if none was present. There are products made specifically for cleaning between the fins of the condenser and evaporator coils. Use them only as directed.

If these suggestions do not work, you may have a problem with the thermostat, refrigerant level, condenser or condenser fan.

Good luck!

First replace fan capacitor and try, if not, bearings worn out in your fan motor. Replace bearings or motor with new capacitor.

HEAT PUMP PROBLEMS


Defrost cycle is to allow frosy or ice to melt down and not restrict the output air. The thermostat is set too low and in high humidity ice forms quickly restricting the air flow. tur up the thermostat and let the room cool gradually.

Make sure your air filters are clean and you are getting enough air flow. If you are operating it with the fan in automatic and it shuts off when the compressor cycles off change it to continuous circulation.
Fan on.
