Check the filter in the furnace. while there make sure the fan is running. If this does'nt fix your problem you probably are low on refrigerant.

Hope this helps Ya

SOURCE: my air conditioner keeps freezing up

Probably 75 to 80 percent of all air conditioner service calls are repaired by simply cleaning the coil fins. If it is a window air conditioner, unplug it from the wall, remove the front cover and brush the coil fins using an up and down motion. Next go outside and brush the outside coil the same way. Then blow through it with water. Too much water pressure can also bend the cooling fins. The inside coil if extremely plugged up can be washed also but it will be necessary to remove it from the window to do so. If this doesn't solve your problem, chances are that it is either low on freon or the compressor is weak. It may be time to look for a new one. I hope this helps

Hello, the unit will frost from either low airflow ( dirty coil or filter) or a low refrigerant charge due to a leak.

It keeps freezing up if you put it past #5


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. Freeze ups are caused by a couple things.

1. The first thing is a dirty evaporator coil. Air conditioners that run 24 hours a day should be thoroughly cleaned every 90 days.

2. The Blower fan wheel is dirty

3. The fan motor is not running fast enough.

Most of the time these 3 items listed above are the main reasons and Air Conditioner Freezes up.

Thanks for using FixYa,

Kelly

Evaporater freezes up after running for aa short while


HELLO THERE:
When you set the temperature settings down around 64 or lower the unit will freeze up so i recommend to keep it at around 68 or 70 ok this will keep it from freezing also make sure that the unit is free of any obstructions so the air can freely get to the unit ok?
best regards michael

If the coils freezes up half-way-down and lower is due to low freon psi.

Mine has done this alot, mostly because I live in a state with ALOT of wind, and in an area with ALOT of dirt. Sounds like your coils are dirty. Try cleaning it out, or having it cleaned out. If you spray it with water just make sure your compressor is facing up and you don't use too much pressure. Hope this helps
