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,

Is it safe to drive a car when it leaks out water .Car is not overheating.

It is never recommended to drive a car that is leaking coolant. However, if the leak is small, and you keep close tabs on the coolant levels to avoid running low on coolant, you can drive for short periods of time until repairs can be implemented. Obviously, larger leaks may make this impossible. Also, remember to keep the proper ration of anti-freeze to water in the coolant when you top off. Even if it is not winter, the engine parts need the anti-freeze to prevent corrosion and to lubricate the water pump. Going with straight water, or an overly diluted mixture will cause more problems for you down the road.

Upon first use, you have to charge the battery overnight. Then for every recharge, you may have to keep it connected to the charger for at least 4 to 6 hours depending on your tablet, otherwise, your battery will go kaputt in a short period of time.

I would start by checking the fluid to make sure it's at the proper level, Then check to see if the thermostat is opening like it should. If you have good flow and you get heat inside the car but the car still overheats I think I'd be checking for blown head gaskets and head warp.

What are the advantages of freeze dried fish food over fresh food?

Some people prefer freeze dried fish food over fresh as it's easier to keep and a bit less revolting to handle. The freeze dried food kills parasites and preserves natural flavors and nutrients for a long period of time. But some fish prefer their food to be fresh, so it really depends on your fish.

It is not cooling, what can I do? Maybe unplug and plug back up?

if the problem is an internal freeze up (which would provide a warm fridge), allowing it to thaw via an unplug will correct the problem for a short period of time. It would provide useful information.

Frigidaire side by side - fridge side temp too low

It sounds as though your thermostat is not cycling your compressor off causing it to run until the point of freezing. If you sit and listen, you will hear it hum. If it never stops humming, 9 times out of 10, the power outage shorted your thermostat.
