The lines on my air conditioner keep freezing and its not getting cold but the compressor keeps coming on


If your vents inside are blowing normal and your filters are clean, more than likely you are low on refrigerant and it will have to be charged. Also check to make sure the fan motor outside is working when the system is on. Hope this helps!

I have a trane XB1000 unit (DOB around 2000). Was cooling fine, but noted a whining noise at the outside unit. Loudest near the base below compressor tank. Interior filter clean, a-coil fairly clean,...


If the sound is coming from the outdoor unit, check fan blade if unbalance and if the compressor is making the noise, an internal mounting spring must be broken, be ready to replace the compressor when the internal pipe got broken.

Ac fan on, blowing air, but not cold


Check outside unit if unit and compressor are running feel the large line to see if it is cold. If compressor is running and line is not cold possible charge problems. You may have a capacitor problem outside. they go out quite often. You can change this yourself, Open up outside unit and the cap is the silver bullet with terminals out the top. Bad cap can cause compressor to not operate and also the fan. You need to clean the coil inside or at leat check the coil to see if it is clean. You can clean theis with a toilet brush do not go against the coil bit brush with the fins. You may need to call a service tech but try these options first. russ

Air conditioner constantly running, not cooling house


Check and see if it is froze up. Check big line at outside unit for ice. check filter and replace as needed. Check outside fan to see if it is running. Wash out outside coil If fan and compressor are running and has hot small line at outside unit. If not froze up and coil is clean you will need to call in a pro. If compress over heated you may need to wait for it to restart if coil was dirty. Again make sure out door fan and or unit is running and clean.

Goodman unit freezing outside the unit


Its not the thermostat.

The things that can cause this problem are lack of or poor airflow over the Evaporator coil. Or a low system charge. Or quite possibly a restriction in the line on the low side. When they replaced the compressor did they purge the line set with nitrogen and pull a deep vaccum? This is imperative when replacing a condensing unit to ensure that no residual particles are left in the line set to create a restriction.

Hope this helps You

Have the freon checked, quickly. This condition can damage the compressor if you let it run like that.

Air conditioner freezing


Check your filter in the furnace, Then check the coil to make sure it is clean. If neither of these two solutions fix your problem you may be low on refrigerant.

If the top of the compressor is freezing you either have low refrigerant or a restriction in the coil. Check the air filter and change if necessary. Turn the outside unit off using the outside disconnect found a few feet away from the condenser. Let the indoor unit blow air for a few hours to melt the ice off of the coil. Turn back on the outside unit and after about a half hour, you should feel the cool air from your ducts. If the cool air gets warmer over the next hour, you will need a tech to look for leaks and recharge your unit. If it continues to blow warm air even after the 3-hour wait, you have other issues. To answer your original question, on the indoor unit you will find access panels that can be removed for inspection and cleaning. They are commonly located where a 3/4" drain pipe exits the cabinet. While the unit is off, remove these panels and inspect for a buildup of debris. Good Luck!
