A frozen compressor or coils on an air conditioner usually indicates low refrigerant. If this is a central air unit you are going to have to have it recharged and possibly repaired. My local gas and energy company does one free recharge a year. I would look into that. If it is a window or wall unit you will have to call in a repairman or replace it.

Jeep cherokee 2.80 crd water reservoir bottle over heating

double posted, why?
again no year car stated, and no country, why, not tell that.?????
my guess, is you are guessing at the cause.
skipped step 1, compression test,
or you dont keep the antifreeze at 50% and you have freeze damage.
is night temps (or day) just below freezeing (-5c) ??
just below 0C water freezes and expands greatly causing huge damage (physics101)
so same answer on this, compression test, then a rad leakdown test to see of there is other damage,
my guess, car is so old, shops wont touch it?
why are you trying to fix it, lacking service tools.

no year car, no country stated, why??????????

Why my acer 5633 stop working and mouse and all comand stop working and I had to stop with power buttom?

It may have been a software error (freeze-up) or hardware error.
Try starting the computer in Safe Mode and run a full virus/malware scan. If it freezes during that, force a shutdown again by holding down the power button for several seconds. Then sparay compressed air through the air vents on the side, rear, and bottom of the laptop. Do NOT shake the can of compressed air before spraying. You can buy a can of compressed air at any computer store or office supply store.
You can also run a test on the computer's memory to see if there's a faulty memory module. Check your Help & Support file for how to run Windows own "Memtest86".

Samsung refridgerator freezes due to clogged drain line.

I would look for bad door gaskets. Sounds crazy but if you have bad gaskets, you will let in more moist air and the freezer will freeze up faster. If the fridge is freezing up I would look at the slide from the freezer to the fridge and see if it is stuck open. During the defrost cycle the unit should drain and fill the drain pan, but the normal operation of the compresser should be able to evaporate the water with ease. Look at the door gaskets and the vent. Good luck

Avanti fridge not freezing up

If the freezer is not freezing I would first check the temperature control. If the contacts are not closing on the temp control then the compresser will never come on. If you determine the control is closing the I would put my hand on the compresser. If it is very hot and not vibrating I would say you have a bum compressor. If it is vibrating then I would look at a plugged off cap tube in which case you need a professional to come in and take care of the problem. Good luck

Ps3 is freezing i am in the process of doing a full restore will this help??

I can, it depends on what's causing your issue. Freezing is usually caused by heat and or a failing blu-ray drive. After it's done restoring take the PS3 outside and spray the vents with compressed air.

Let me know if you still are experiencing freezing after that.
