Question about Goodman CLJ30AR32 Air Conditioner
Copper pipes are iceing over. I shut it off and they melted. so I turned it back on and it was working but now the pipes are iced over again.
On a "Non Heat Pump" unit, icing of the pipes is not good. It is an indication that you either have a low freon level (Charge), low load, wrong superheat.
A low load usually means, in this case, something wrong with the air flow. Clogged filter, wrong fan speed, something blocking the return air grill, like a chair/ blanket, etc.
If low on charge, the evap (Indoor Coil) will ice up and the ice will then slowly creep along the pipe untill it gets to the outdoor unit. This is really no good. Air cannot go thru solid ice so naturally there is no cooling happening.
If a company replaces the outdoor unit (Condensing Unit), there is no warranty on the indoor unit. I do not know of any company that will repair an indoor coil (Evap). Just not smart money. They have to capture the freon, open the system, make the repair, ensure the correct level of freon is in the system, and most time, add a filter/ dryer for additional filtering and drying of the freon. With all that, no one is going to patch a leak on an old coil because if it leaks now, it's going to have another soon. You'll just be chasing leaks and spend money after money. Hope that makes sense. HVAC companys have to follow the EPA rules too. Leaving a system leaking above a certain percent of it's total charge is a major no-no. They will not do it.
Hope this helps clear up a few things and good luck.
