What is the problem when an air conditioner begins to freeze up?


Freezing up is caused by
•dirty air filter or evaporator coil(indoor coil)
•dirty blower wheel or blower fan blades
•low freon
•weak or slow blower motor
If air filter and indoor coil are clean may be low on freon. Blower wheels seldom get dirty on window units. Pull unit from window and clean both coils with a water hose. Careful not to get any electrical wet. Let dry for a while and reinstall. If it continues to freeze its a freon problem most the time.

Why does my gibson js5bd042ka keep freezing up


Because your unit is low on refrigerant, air filter needs to be changed, your evaporator coil is dirty, the ambient temperature is to low, or you blower is not running

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.

If my pipes freeze would difty filter cause it


Hello
Yes a dirty filter or a dirty coil can cause your pipes to freeze up.Dirt will stop the air from flowing through the coil.Causing it to freeze.

Replace your filter.Then clean out the coil.Simple green spray cleaner and water do a good job of getting rid of dirt on a/c coils.Turn unit off while cleaning.

If ice continues after filter and cleaning then you may be low on freon and have a leak.

Temperature lowering problem.................


Are you referring to 16 degrees and 34 degrees?
If you are, it is not possible to lower the setting to 16 degrees, 32 degreees is freezing, so the evaperator coil would start to freeze up, and as the ice spreads across the coil............... Air can not flow through ice, so the air will stop blowing, till you shut the system down for a couple of hours, to allow the ice to melt.
This is the reason why these units are set with min. temp settings.
I hope this helps.
Sincerely,
Paul Gibson

Ice on the coil fins of my Window AC unit......


set your unit to fan mode only, to thaw the ice, after the ice melts, look at your evaporator coil, see if its dirty, if its dirty, then you might just need a good cleaning. if the coil is clean, look at your thermostat setting. it should not be all the way cold. the compressor would run continously and it would freeze the coil. third, the refrigerant system could be partially clogged up or it lacks refrigerant. these problems initiate freezing of the coil.
