Hello MCOMSTI You have a freon leak that MUST be found & repiared so the system will keep the charge.A fast leak is eaiser to find,look for a oil/grease stain anywhere on the system,when you loose 1/2 system charge you make ice.

The coils jeep freezing up I have cleaned the filter


usually means Freon charge is low, you might have a leak..... also, filters don't catch everything. over time what gets past the filter can be trapped in underside of the evaporative coil on top of your furnace..... outside condenser coils may be caked with debris, improper air flow threw coils can produce liquid Freon back to evaporative coil causing it to freeze..
hosing the condenser down will resolve freezing up too

Why does my A/C condenser compressor turn on and off every 5 minutes?


You need good airflow across the indoor coil, the evaporator. Air warms the refrigerant. If there is no airflow, the refrigerant will come back out freezing cold (in liquid form) and can damage the compressor valves. Before charging any ac unit, good airflow must be checked for across both evaporator and condensor.
Too much, overcharging will cause freezing all the way back to the compressor in a capilary tube type of ac.
Where is it the refrigeration lines are freezing cold?

We have a Goodman AC Unit and the pipe continues to freeze.


either the inside coil is dirty or system is overcharged.

Our house is hot! The ac unit outside comes on and freezes up, and the blower is not coming on. We have had the inside thermostat changed and freon added and now a new capasitor but no luck.....HLEp


Man, it sounds like you have a heat pump with a bad defrost board or reversing valve. I assume your description of the unit outside freezing up is the condenser and the blower you refer to is the condenser fan motor. Or, is it the big copper line to the compressor that is freezing up? If so, have someone stand by the inside blower and listen for a click as you move the thermostat fan switch from auto to on a couple of times., Make sure at the time you are testing that the thermostat is in the off position. Those 2 switches operate separately. If you hear those clicks during the test you probably have a bad blower motor if there are are no clicks you may have a bad blower relay or board. Hope this helps good luck.

What kind of freon do i need and where do i put it


Freon has been switched to R134 in new production since the 1990s.
There are always 2 valves on all AC systems.
The low side, which is larger diameter hose, and the high side, which is smaller diameter.
And it is always the low side with the largest hose, that you introduce freon into.
But you also need to find the receiver/dryer cylinder after the radiator condenser. There will be a tiny sight glass in the top, and you can see when there is clear liquid and no more bubbles. Then you must stop adding freon, or you will blow the pump. Wear glasses and gloves, because high pressure freon is dangerous. You can use a bowl of warm water to help keep the can from freezing up.

My Ac keep losing Freon with no visable leaks, Just filled eight weeks ago and is blowing warm air already.


Did you put some freon oil in it or a can of stop leak. A lot of times freon will leak from the o rings. If you just add freon and no oil it will slowly leak out. Add about 4 ounces of oil and then your freon. Let the car run w/ac on for about 30 minutes. This should work.

At a State park... AC freezing up


If the unit is low on freon, there should be visible signs of leaking somewhere in the upper unit. Are you running the system on Low Cool? This will often times cause the AC to freeze up because the condenser fan and the evaporator fan are on the same motor. If you run the system on low cool, you are not getting enough air movement over your condenser to effectively warm up the freon and thus causing the system to freeze. Turn it to high and adjust the thermostat if it is too cold, this should help.

Central air freezing up


Low freon causes this problem. It could be the compressor going bad, but 99% of the time it is that the freon is low, have it leak tested and also have freon added

Might be icy. First, fully defrost by either removing the rear panel and using a hair dryer (dangerous) or leave it off and open for two days. Check door gaskets and clean or repair. Clean condenser coils under the unit. Now, take off the back lower panel and find the compressor. Largest pipe is what we're interested in. Start unit. It will frost the pipe. After 5 minutes, frost should be replaced by ice, dry or wet...not frost. If still frosty, you need freon. Hard to know what the right price would be.

What else could it be? Thermostat, defrost timer. Try my stuff before going on.
