    My air condition inside unit seems to be freezing up and the air stops blowing through the vents after a few hours of operation. After I turn it off it sounds like ice melting. after a few hours I can turn it back on ,it will blow through the vents again there is a fan on the front of the inside unit it is that is making noise. Is that a exhaust fan? It is attached to a pipe that runs up through the house.
    Is there another fan inside the unit that blows the air through the vents?
    Is it freezing up because the fan inside is not blowing the air off the coils?
    Can you tell me what is going on and can a person like me with some mechanical skills fix it? Thanks

    yes I am here I did not get an answer to my questions

    I would like a refund to my credit card nothing sent from Fix Ya was close to the solution. My unit was low in freon and that what was causing it to freeze up. We brought the freon up to the correct

    level and now it is working fine.

    Thanks

    I asked all those questions and never got an answer I found all of those answers myself charged up my system it stopped freezing up and the air is working fine.

    The unit was freezing up because it was low in freon.

    I would like a credit issued to my charge card Fix Ya was no help to me at all.

    If you are not the person I need to get a refund please tell me who it is or pass this along to them.

    Thanks,

    Gary

When does it make the noise, when on AC or heat?? 2 things if the fan is on the ac unit itself that's not the one that blows air thorugh your vents, if its the one inside the furnace that is the one that blows air through your vents, but remember their are 2 fans in your furnace. A small one about the size of your fist that helps circulate the exhaust/fumes outside. the large one that blows air to the vents sits on the lower part of the furnace (the squirrl cage) and is not hard to replace but takes a little bit of mechanical knowledge. Usually runs about $75-$150 on average. If thats squeaking the bearings are most likely the cause and it will just et worse as time passes.

    Keep in mind that what we suggest is only a suggestion. The only way to know for certain is to physically diagnos the problems. We as experts are still limited to our knowledge over the PC. We have to go on your information and that's all we have. If you name/lable something incorrectly its gonna give you an incorrect anwer. We can't be 100% certain (no one can) over the phone/computer. If you feel you need a refund you will need to contact the fix ya customer service team for refund

    change the filters you need to look at the a coil see if you hold a light inside if you can see threw the coils. you need to use foam-a-gator to clean the coils with. be sure to flush with water good. dont get it in your eyes.

When evaporator is full of ice, check the following;
Note: You may actually need the service of a qualified technician. Proper tools are needed also.

  1. Clogged filter/drier. Clean or replace filter/drier. You have to discharge the refrigerant first then recharge after replacement or cleaning. The system must be evacuated of moisture, dirt,metal chips or any particles that can cause clogging on the capillary tube.
  2. Evaporator fan. The the fan if can be turned manually. If not, realign and lubricate. It should turn freely..Otherwise it must be replaced.
  3. Refrigerant: Check the refrigerant using a gauge manifold. Repair leaks and recharge refrigerant .

AC works for about 300 miles then stops and blows hot air. New AC compressor and freon charge. After sitting for a while it will again blow cold.


I think you have a similar problem to mine. At highway speeds is when it happens. And it is not blazing hot? Right?
Your evaporator is freezing up - as this happens the ice surrounding it prevents the flow of air over the evaporator coils and the result is warm air coming out of the registers. If I turn off the AC for about ten minutes and let unit melt the cold air comes back. This does not occur in stop and go driving.
I combat it by either running the fan at a higher than normal setting to increase air flow over the evaporator and then turning off when it gets too cold, OR using the air control to allow warmer outside air to enter into unit at highway speeds to prevent freezing up.
Newer cars have more sophisticated sensors and controls to prevent this but some older vehicles are subject to this anomaly.
Since it works fine under normal conditions I have not messed around with the freon level in system. If you release a tad of refrigerant the low pressure switch will shut off the compressor sooner and help minimize ice buildup. Good luck.

Why does freezer's alarm sound every 12 hrs?


There could be an ice build up sensor on the coil. try turning it off and using a hair dryer to melt any ice on the coil. This would be inside the rear of the freezer, you would direct the hot air into the vent that the cold air normally comes out of.

No cool air is coming out of vents. Checked Filters OK, Cruited breakers OK, vents OK not blocked. Could it be low on freon and compressor froze up and I should wait for ice to melt than possibly get...


Yes let the ice melt on the evap coil and the outside line. You either have a low charge or you might check your filter dryer on the outside lines this could be stopped up. you will will have a temp drop across the filter if it is stopped up. If not it is possible to be low on charge. Is the inside fan turning and turning the right direction. If the inside fan is not turning it will cause the evap coil to freeze up.

No air blowing into fridge, although we can hear blower. Freezer is working


if you can hear the fan still blowing but no cold air coming up to fridge section a common problem with bottom mount freezers is the door gets left open and the air ducts freeze up and the air can't blow up to the top.turn the control off in the freezer.remove the top shelf and the door,check to see if there are any screws one on each side of the slide arms,if there are remove them and lift the door up and out,with a hair dryer melt out the ice by blowing the hot air up each side of the back wall,also if the back inside wall of the freezer is covered with ice or like snow then you have a defrost problem but if there's no ice on back wall do what i said and blow the air up the sides of the back wall through the vents until no more water is seen dripping through the vent holes,then turn the freezer back on and check to see if you feel cold air blowing in through the vents in the fridge section,if you feel cold air then you're all set,if not keep blowing the hot air up the sides until it's melted out.let me know what you find,you'll know if the door was left open,ice will be on the ceiling near the light switch and sometimes on the top of the freezer door

I have a heat pump and it freeze up


If you are referring to the outside unit freezing up, the issue is in the defrost cycle. The defrost cycle works something like this: The unit reverses the flow of freon causing the inside coil to blow cold air into the conditioned space and the outside coil is now working like an a/c unit, it gets warm to melt the frost/ice. The inside unit electric heat strips come on so you do not notice the cold air being blown in. The fan on the outside unit stops running to allow the coil to get good and warm.
Now the unit should go into the defrost cycle every 90 minutes or so. It should not terminate the cycle untill the coil is clear of frost. There is an "Klixon" type termostat that measures the temperature of the outside coil. This is most likely the problem. It is prematurely terminating the defrost cycle. I'd start there first.

Hope this helps, Let me know if I can be of any further help.

My A/C evaporator is freezing up, and wont cool the house below 85 degree


Check your filter and make sure you have one in place and it is clean. This is either a low inside airflow problem or system is low on freon. If you have strong air flow from vents and filter is been kept clean then low freon is most likely. Run system in on position with cooling off to make sure ice is melted. When water stops draining. then restart system . If it starts frosting up at outside unit shortly after start up it most likely is air flow. If you don't have at least 15 degree drop from registers in a few minutes and indoor humidity is not too high inside and airflow decreases and air gets colder just before it freezes up then it is low freon.

Kitchenaid KSRA25IL Freezer working Fine - Refrigerator not


many times when a unit has a defrost problem the coils freeze up and do not allow the fresh food side to cool properly...check for a build up of ice on the inside back wall of the freezer compartment. if there is a build up of ice, you have a defrost problem. Also, check to make sure the evaporator fan in the freezer is blowing the air into the fresh food side.

Home central air conditioning unit


check the filter, make sure it's not plugged. Make sure all the vents are open. Are the lines freezing up (have ice on them?) Could be a lot of things but if it is not blowing much air then you may have a motor problem or dirty filter. If the unit is freezing up then probably have a leak and will need to be found, fixed and recharged.

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
