Make sure the indoor filters are clean. The outside unit will continue to run until the indoor reaches the temperature you have selected. Dirty filters can throw the temperature out. Its common for outdoor units to freeze up when on heating mode if the ambient air temperature is below 5 degrees Celcius.. The machine should however, defrost itself. There could be a problem with one of the pipe or air sensors on the outdoor unit.

Ac unit keeps freezing up


what a heat pump is designed to do is reverse the evaporator inside coil and condensor outside coil. it trys to pick up heat from outside and transfer it inside. they work fairly well down to about 40 degrees ambient then not so good. that is why you have auxillary heat i.e. 15 kw. when it was shaking as you saw the compressor is trying to pump liquid instad of vapor as it's designed to. you either have a control issue or it's overcharged.

I have a Mitsubishi heat pump that runs well but the outdoor unit does not defrost what could be the problem.


Why does my heat pump ice up in Winter?
Heat pumps naturally ice-up in the winter. It is normal for the entire coil to be covered in a white frost and even light ice, during cold weather conditions. However, it is bad for the entire unit to be encased in ice. This indicates ductless heat pump problems which should be addressed quickly to save energy and avoid serious damage to your ductless unit. These systems should periodically go into a defrost cycle. This keeps the unit running efficiently. If the coils are blocked by ice, proper heat transfer between the coil and the outside air will not occur.
How does the defrost mode work?
When the mini split heat pump goes into defrost, the reversing valve inside of the outdoor unit is energized, switching the system from heat to the air conditioning mode. The outdoor coil becomes the hot, the indoor coil becomes cold, and both - the outdoor and indoor fans shut off. This allows the outdoor coil to melt accumulated ice. When the built-in micro-computer analyzes that all ice have been melted, the heat pump heating system goes back to heating mode.
sanyo-mini-split-defrost.pngA cloud of water vapor may be seen rising over the outdoor unit and a "whoosh" sound can be heard as the refrigerant reverses direction. The entire process usually takes up to 10 minutes (depending on conditions).
How often does the system goes into defrost mode?
Ductless mini-split heat pumps have different ways of determining when to go into defrost. The built-in microcomputer determines outdoor temperature, refrigerant pressures, and several other factors. In colder temperatures the system will go into defrost more often than in warmer.
If a ductless mini split heat pump is severely iced-up in the winter it is possible that it isn't defrosting (though there could be many other causes). Let the manufacturer certified technician check your system

Make ice good, but that can`t drop ice...


Clean the ice tray with cleaner and soft brush. Rinse a few times then make ice. Dump out first batch. Make sure ice thickness is to spec.

Fan freezes up with ice in winter


They need air, do not cover it when in use.

If ti cools fine in summer then you just have a defrost problem.

Make sure the outdoor coil is clean.
If the coils are clean, then you have a bad defrost control.

In heat mode the unit should go into a timed or temp controlled defrost. If it is frosting up to the point of stopping the fan, in heat mode only, and otherwise operates properly, then its a bad defrost control.

It is reccomended that the defrost temp sensor be replaced at the same time the defrost control board is replaced. Some temp sensors are part of the board and not a seperate component, but not most.

Air conditioner freezing up


Your unit is low on freon. Take the unit to a service facility & have it recharged & the leak repaired. Note that ice formation may normal if the outside temperature is below 45-50F. If you must use it in the meantime, leaving the unit on fan only will melt the ice much faster.
