Why is my air conditioning unit keeps freezing up

Posted by on

  • rockmarshall Jun 26, 2008

    My unit is 8 years old and has performed great until our last trip. The unit froze during the day causing low circulation. I checked to see if the probe was at the coil and it was attached to the coil but I'm not sure if it is working. Can you help?

Low ambient outside temperatures can cause this problem if you are running your system with the fan in the automatic mode. When the fan cycles with the temperature ice built up in the cooling cycle has no means of defrost. Set your fan control to on.

Why isn't it cooling the room?


A few months ago my air conditioning unit was having cooling issues too. However, the mechanic that came and fixed it said that it was because we constantly blasted it and kept the temperature really low. How cold are you trying to keep your room? Sometimes it has to do with the system freezing up from trying to keep it too cold. Air Conditioning in Chetek WI Stellar Heating Solutions

I have a 1.5 ton air handler unit that keeps freezing. Ive blown the lines cleaned thw coils and replaced the filter.


If you have done all this then you need to have a tech come and top of the refrigerant, and if he doesn't see a leak, but you have a slow leak that happens over time it will freeze again.

Low level will cause the handler to freeze with other conditions, but it appears you have covered the rest.

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.

My A/C blowing air, but it is not cool. It has started freezing up. We just replaced the air filters and since then it is freezing up. We even gently cleaned the a/c coils before replacing the filters. ...


Hello, sounds like it is either a low charge or lack of airflow, what type of filter are you using? sometimes those filters that claim to be super effecient will actually cut down on your airflow and cause the ac to freeze up.

Unit freezing up


It will not hurt the unit if you let it thaw out and then run it again. However, if you keep doing this on a regular basis, you can burn out your compressor. What are the conditions that the unit is being run under that is causing it to freeze up? Make sure that you run the unit on high cool on warm days so that it will not freeze.

Hope this helps,

Jeff
