You are low on freon. Which most likely means that you also have a leak going on in your system somewhere. This task is best left to a service tech, and I would also recommend you not using your system tell you can get someone out to look at it

Goldman capf3636b6. Fan outside is running blowing cold air to the outside.Inside is making a humming sound but not running.If I turn it off all of it stopsThere is some ice visible on the pipes


System needs to be thawed out, so turn it off before something else breaks, cause pipes are probably plugged and stopping any movement inside the system, Try using a blow dryer on high heat to help with the thaw out of the pipes with the ice build-up , then leave it off for a couple of hours and then try to turn it on again see if the unit in the house is running or blowing cold air again. Turn it on HIGH...!!!!

With such limited information the following is the most likely problem.
1. The fan outside is running but the compressor is not.
2. The inside air handler blower fan is not working.
3. The system is froze up and not allowing any cold air to come out of the vents.
Hope this helps

High efficiency outside air conditioner does not cool house, seems to for a while but stops. The pipes at the air conditioner are coated with ice so seems to produce cold but does not blow that through the...


Unfortunately, the ice coating isn't normal, in fact, it is an indication that your unit is low on freon or a blockage. But could also mean a few other things.

But about the only thing you can do yourself is make sure that the fan is turning or not.

Line to evaporator iced over


I am not exactly sure as to the type of unit you have. If it is a ductless split system (inside unit on the wall, never seen Lennox make one) you could be low on charge, the metering device to drop the refrigerant pressure is in the outdoor unit. If this is a whole house system, you may have a restriction in the outdoor section somewhere. If you look into the unit while it is running, try to find a filterdrier. It is a cylinder soldered into the small line. You can also see exactly where the ice starts, that is where your restriction is. Let me know what you find out.

Unit continue to run nonstop


possibly two or more problems. drain may be plugged and therefore no water dripping from it. attach a good wet dry shop vac and **** it out. listen for good suction at in door coil when vac is attached outside . feel large insulated line outside . it should be ice cold to touch but not frozen . if it is kinda cool then your low on gas. if its froze you are low on gas or dirty filter ,coil , or blower wheel. .you can measure temp drop between return air in and supply air out at the in door blower . it is usually 18 to 20 dgrees , in at 80, out at 60 so to speak. greater than 2o and you have a restriction like dirty or filter or froze up. less than 15 you are low on gas or inefficient compressor. be sure your fan is in the auto mode , not the on mode or indoor fan will run 24-7.

Cold air from outside coming in house through vent


Sounds like your damper (flap) outside is working, and that's probably the first thing to check. Wind may be also pulling the damper open from time to time. Hopefully the pipe fitting is sealed, and the pipe is insulated anywhere it runs through any unheated portion of the house. Some amount of cold air getting in will be unavoidable. The best bet next might be to look over the two pages in the installation instructions that deal with outside venting. If you don't have the installation instructions, you can get a copy here: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/ Then if you don't notice any obvious problems with the installation, it may be time to contact the installer for their two cents.
