Question about Heating & Cooling
I am guessing that this is a window mounted unit??
The main reason for an air conditioner freezing over is that it is not getting enough air flow. You should replace your filter, make sure not to fold over any of the soft metal fins, you may also have build up in these fins and that too will restrict air flow and cause the unit to freeze up.
If this is central air, then the same thing is true, start with the filter, but remember that you need to let the system breath. Do not close off to many vents in your home thinking that you are going to save money, in fact this can cause your power bill to increase because the system has to work harder and hotter.
If the unit continues to freeze up, you should have a certifed A/C tech come out and take your air conditioner apart and clean it. If it's a window unit it might be better to just replace it all together.
Hope this helps your problem,
