My Aircon is icing up and dripping water over everything under it, I've cleaned the outer filter and blown out any dust inside, is there anything else that needs to be done?...any other filters that need to be cleaned/replaced?
If your filters are clean and the evap coil is not plugged. the unit should not be icing up. If icing occurs when all components are clean, there is an issue with the refrigerant charge and should be looked at by a professional

Most likely low on refrigerant. This will cause the evaporator to ice up which will then drip in side the room as the outer surface melts. It also causes less air flow through the heat exchanger which exacerbates the problem. You need to find the source of the leak which is probably at one of the flare joins. Unfortunately, I don't have a service manual for this model so cant tell you what the error code is. Consult a local tech.
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.
Water leaking in split unit common, due to air filter & evaporator coil dust blocked- Clean it. Drain pan and drain hose dust blocked-clean it. And also due to less rpm of indoor motor, there will be forming ice over the coil result to water leaking while defrosting.Replace motor capacitor.
1. Do not set the aircon too low temperature in overcast weather, this will cause ice ups and water dripping. Optimal comfort zone temperature is 24c.
2. You need to open the grill cover on the front of the aircon which unclips either end left and right with a finger pressure. You will find two filters which can slide out and should be cleaned. First tap them together to remove dust, then you can wash them with mild soap and cold water.
3. There is the third possibility that an insect has made a nest in the drainpipe. You should look on the outside of the building and locate a plastic drainpipe. You can either blow into this pipe with your mouth or get a blower. This will unblock any restriction in the drainpipe.
Goodluck and ratemeplease.
usually because the drain hole/duct/tube, on the outside is blocked, or the aircon is mounted leaning Into the house, condesate that is supposed to drip into the outer casing and run out the hole is funneled over the lowest point of the casing, the house side.
check and unblock the drain,
and ensure the aircon is mounted tilted back.
- Check your air filter at the indoor if clean. - Check your evaporator fins if clean. - Check if no icing in your evaporator and outdoor pipes. - If your air filter and evaporator fins is clean and icing is present then your unit is under charge. - When your indoor drips check your drain pipe if there are water comes out. If no water drain from your drain pipes then your drainage is restricted. - Flush your drainage with water using your garden hose to flush out dirts from your drainage.
during Cooling and Dry modes, if the unit is used under conditions of lower temperature (18C) the heat-exchanger may freeze, leading to water leakage and other damage. If the unit is used for long periods under high-humidity conditions, condensation may form on the surface of the indoor unit, and drip onto the floor or other objects underneath. (About 80% or more)
