Make sure blower is running at the proper speed, if it's running to slow do to bad bearing or capacitor, the coil will freeze up.
Check evaporator coil and filter to see if they are dirty if they are then the coil will freeze up
Check the charge if it's low on refrigerant the coil will freeze up.
If your not sure how to check these things, then you should have a HVAC company, check it out for you.

Coils freeze and temp says it is 55


Low on refrigerant or low airflow. The temp sensor is reading the ice.

If i set the temp to low on my window air conditioner can it cause the unit to freeze up


Under some conditions, it could freeze up. High humidity levels can cause the coils to freeze. Not cleaning the air intake filter regularly, can also cause the coils to freeze. However, most window units can not be set below 65 degrees. But, in high humidity, it could freeze at that temp.

If you want to avoid the possibility of the coils freezing, operate a ceiling fan or other small fan as fast as comfortable. This keeps the cool air moving a generates a wind chill that fools your body into thinking it's cooler than it really is. Doing this will keep you from having to turn the AC way down and thus, save on energy cost.

I hope this has helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

The unit keeps freezing up solid even on energysaver


Change or clean the filter and clean both coils, no air flow or reduced air flow, the coil will freeze. It will also freeze if its set to cold 72 min. setting. Example if your room temp is 72 degrees, than the air will be 52, and the coil temp is 32 degrees, any moisture will freeze. Hope this helps

Cooling fins surrounding coils are freezing and


mcdevito75 here, Possibly, the filter needs cleaning / replacement, unit set to too cold. Shut A/C off, let the ice melt on it"s own DO NOT REMOVE ICE YOURSELF, those coils have the fren gas in them, when the ice is all melted restart unit, set temp. not so cold, around 60--65 degrees, and have exhaust to out. This shpoul;d help, you can always check with your local A/C repair shop, they come to the house.

have you brought it down for a general cleaning on the 3 year period? if not then that's what it needs now.

the coil is freezing up because of dirt accumulation on the coil. even there is a filter, still with in 3 years it could have accumulated to decrease the airflow thru the coil and freeze it up.

Whirlpool Heat and Air Window Unit ACE184XRO- freezing up


This is only low freon. If the bottom coils freezes and frost over, you don't have enough freon to travel as liquid back to the compressor and boils right there and past this only cool gas .I'll advise you to get this fixed before you loose a compressor due to locking up by not cooling the compressor properly. Get in touch with an Ac man. this should only cost around $100:00
