Ice forming means you have your AC set at a temp that is too low. Of course it cannot remove the heat from the air if no air can pass over the coils. There is very high humidity in the space you are trying to cool ... slow down a little on your cooling process.

LS-1260HL split A/C. Why isn't it blowing at full speed in cool mode?


ice on indoor units can be from blocked evaporator fins / blocked filters
inspect the fins under the filter pads and if they look greasy and dirty have the indoor unit professionally cleaned as it is messy

It cools great when first turned on. After so many hours of cooling it stops cooling


Have you checked up in filter area at ceiling to see if fins are frozen or frosted bad? If they are dirty, they can cause frost/ice and AC goes in to fan only until frost/ice is gone. When did unit actually get a good cleaning last? Too many registers closed or blocked can cause freeze up as well. Does this unit have ducted or non-ducted system?

Ice forming on inside of indoor unit...not cooling properly


Hello, ice will form either due to low airflow such as a dirty filter, evaporator coil, blower wheel. Or due to a low refrigerant charge.

The freezer is not cooling and all items in the freezer have dethawed, The Fridge part is cool but not as cool. This started last night and 24 hours later everything defrosted.


hopefully you still got it plugged up to check a few things.... if so here we go...
1st is there any frost build up on the back wall of the freezer wall inside unit... if so then we know the compressor is still working and you got a defrost problem going on most likely one of these three parts /the heater has failed,the defrost thermostat has failed. or the defrost timer has failed... you can check the heater by gaining access to the back wall of freezer remove shelfs and the remove back panel of freezer there will be a heater down at bottom with a wire on each side make sure the unit is unplugged at this point and that you take a hair dryer and thaw ice test heater on each side with a meter checking for contuinity through heater to make sure no broke... the defrost thermostat is mounted to the coil in same area prior to thawing gain access to wires if there is ice around thermostat which is round and clips to coil has 2 wires again unit unplugged adn prior to thawing check for contuinity as if there is ice around it it should have closed... if both them are good you most likely have a bad defrost control/timer. if there is no ice on back panel is the fan in freezer section working when the door switch is closed listen ,is the fan in the back of unit working ,is the compressor running have you heard any clicking coming from back of unit if so that would indicate a bad compressor relay on will require to be replaces.... not much description in your post but hopefully one of these tips help you get a diagnoses. good luck

Ice forms on the coils. Would wet clothing hung in the area contribute to this problem? The temperature of the area is in the high 50's - 60's.


Yes. Wet clothing would act to put Humidity in the air. think of the air as a sponge the more you heat the air the more the air will take moisture out of its surrondings. The more you cool the air the less moisture it can hold.
a Dehumidifier is a reverse refrigrator.. Air is forced over cool coils and the moisture forms and freezes on the coils (ice). The unit turns off and the coil and ice takes heat up from the surrounding area (makes room colder;Clothing takes longer to dry; The temperature in that room should be were people reside 70-80 degrees). the ice melts and water drips into a holding container which you dump periodically. Solution: 1. remove wet clothing or 2. raise temperature in room. 3. put a space heater in that room instead of Dehumidifier

RV AC unit won't cool, blows chuncks of ice


It's most likely an airflow problem, you say you had the vents closed? Icing up is normally caused by lack of load (air flow) or loss of refrigerant charge. Make sure all your vents are open to allow for as much airflow as possible and that your filter is clean. Some units do not work well on low airflow setting when the outdoor temps cool down at night.

1.5T Voltas Vetris window AC. Ice formation


I think the more likely problem is that the unit is slightly short of gas\ refrigerant, which is a common cause of icing up evaporator coils and this sound you describe. First check that the air filter is clean. Another cause could be the defrost sensor is faulty, but I would think not. Some ice isn't actually a bad thing, but quite common as long as it doesn't form over too much of the coil, or get too thick.

My 1995 Dometic 2611 runs OK all day but not at night


Yes more than likely the cooling unit is going bad. If your boiler tube is hot the cooling unit is no good. Your frig is 13 years old, it has reached its life span and beyond. A cooling unit or a new frig can be purchased from www.coachtech.info. Just send them an e-mail.

not easy to diagnose. the basic fault is that the defrost system has packed up.

check that there is continuity thro the defrost heater. there may also be a thermal fuse in series with the heater so check that also.

if those ok, then points to a fault in the main module
