You just need first to do some cleaning.
-Vacuum any debris from the indoor and outdoor coils with an upholstery-brush attachment before you install your room air conditioner. Take care not to damage or deform the soft fins.
- Seal the perimeter of the installed unit with new weatherstripping, if needed.

Hope that helps.....

    Sounds like you have plenty humidity in the air. The coils are just a bit to cold, so as the air becomes cooler and dryer the coils drop below freezing an build a block of ice and they become useless to you but they are still using electricity. Move the thermostats to a warmer setting. If you can Keep that coil around 40/45 degrees it will catch water all night/day and not freeze over.



    Hope this help now...

Ice is forming on the coils of my Crosley Conservator. I used compressed air to blow out the grill and coils but it did not help.


most dehumidifiers will freeze up when it gets below 70 degrees. if where you are running it is below 70 degrees, then you need a different style. whirlpool makes a model specifically designed to run in colder climates. best buy or other that has whirlpool stuff.

Make sure the coils are clean. (check the inside part of the coils. If they look ok then see if your compressor is running. if its not running then it could be any number of things. I recommend that you have a pro look at it
