Is the inside fan running properly? Typically if the condensor outside is working, but the fan inside is not, the coils will freeze up quickly. For the system to work properly, you need to be blowing warmer air over the coils inside the house- that then brings the temp of the refrigerant in the coils back up, and the loop continues. If the fan inside is not working, check to make sure that the circuit breaker is not tripped.

Frigidaire AC window unit, model fam185r2a (18,500 BTU) only cools for a few minutes before it cycles off and just fan blows. Then a few min later cool air cycles back on. Is this a thermostat issue?


The window units normally have a sensor thats attached to the front of the indoor coil. This controls the thermostat. I usually pull this sensor away from the coil because it stops cooling before the room is cool. It is attached to the cold coil so it senses the coil temp, not the room temp. You can normally see it when you remove the air filter. Don't break it! It may be a wire or small copper tube

Ac unit in the house keeps freezing up, not a window unit, central unit. The entire part inside keep freezing up, making knocking noise, and not blowing cool air. The out side part is fine, no problems...


There is a coil out side in the unit , it needs cleaning, there is an acid that is used to clean it. Its an easy job, pull the top open and use a stick or something to keep it up so you can spray the coil, with the unit off let soak 10 mins then spray wash with water hose. done

If i set the temp to low on my window air conditioner can it cause the unit to freeze up


Under some conditions, it could freeze up. High humidity levels can cause the coils to freeze. Not cleaning the air intake filter regularly, can also cause the coils to freeze. However, most window units can not be set below 65 degrees. But, in high humidity, it could freeze at that temp.

If you want to avoid the possibility of the coils freezing, operate a ceiling fan or other small fan as fast as comfortable. This keeps the cool air moving a generates a wind chill that fools your body into thinking it's cooler than it really is. Doing this will keep you from having to turn the AC way down and thus, save on energy cost.

I hope this has helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Bought a soleus air conditioner portable on and it worked great for week when drained it it has leaked ever since and not working as well to cool and sometimes gets e3 on displat


E3 error message which apparently means my air conditioneris working so well that it has internal frost. It then stops cooling the airand waits for itself to defrost. So every 5 minutes or so it would stop workingeven if the air temp was above 80 degrees. Also check one of this:
E3 Fault room sensor(s) (open or closed circuit)Code
E3Error detail Remote control transmission error (transmitting error)
Inspected unit Remote control. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

My A/C blowing air, but it is not cool. It has started freezing up. We just replaced the air filters and since then it is freezing up. We even gently cleaned the a/c coils before replacing the filters. ...


Hello, sounds like it is either a low charge or lack of airflow, what type of filter are you using? sometimes those filters that claim to be super effecient will actually cut down on your airflow and cause the ac to freeze up.

When the air condition unit is on and the vehicle is left idling for a while maybe half hour the unit compressor trips off. It will come back on when the vehicle is in motion and it cools back down.


I would not recommend running auto a/c at idle speeds for more then a few mins. But one thing you can do is to use garden hose with high pressure sprayer nozzle to clean the a/c coils mounted in front of radiator.If you can get to the coil with a medium stiff bristle brush than use it to help clean the coils too.I would say the unit is shutting off due to hjgh pressure from lack of air flow thru the coils. Thank you.

Heater not blowing hot air display says lo


when the coils freeze up , from intake of outside air, when using the heat pump mode, the unit will try to defrost the coils before going back to heat mode. mine did this alot. does it kick back to heat after a few mins? also after 2 years , mine started having issues with the exhaust blower control and would go into warp mode and bang noise.seems like common issues for this unit.whether the amana, or haier version.

You are going to have to increase the amount of heat absorbed by the evaporator coil on the indoor section of your system. First change the filter. Second turn the power off to the outdoor section and leave the indoor fan running until all the ice on the evaporator coil has thawed this could take a few hours. Third you need to verify that you are getting adequate airflow across the indoor evaporator coil and the outdoor condenser coil both fans should be spinning at full speed and airflow should be unobstructed by dirty coil fins or debris Hopefully after you've done this you will have cold air blowing inside and the larger of the two lines entering the unit outside will be cool to the touch but not frozen or even frosted regardless of run time and the small one should be the slightly warm but not hot. If the larger line continues to freeze then it could indicate a number of problems but essentially your condensers cooling capacity is outrunning your evaporator coils ability to absorb heat from air stream circulating in your home.Hope it works out for you GL!

Price to replace cooling coil on WeatherKing 12AJA4801


If the coil was frozen over it tells me there is a different problem. If the coil is frozen over try this. turn the circulating fan to the on position and the sir conditioning to off . Let it run this way for 1-2 hours to melt the ice and re-establish the air circulation. Then turn the a/c back to the cool mode and see how it performs.

Lower temperatures during evening and night conditions can cause coils to freeze over. Running you A/C with the fan in the on position generally takes care of this problem when you are cooling.
