Goodman unit freezing outside the unit

Our Goodman unit is freezing up at the base on the part that is connecting the unit to the pipe that connects the unit to the house. My husband's friend is a HVAC man by trade. The compressor went out last year and was replaced by a brand new compressor. The HVAC man (my husband's friend) has done sevaral things;
1. He has cleaned out the coils and filter very thouroughly.
2. He has checked the freon level and added what needed to be added.
3. He is coming this evening to look at the thermostat.

I guess what bothers me is that he is supposedly an HVAC professional, but can't really figure out what the problem is. Maybe he is doing an elimination process of some sort.

To summarize, this unit is freezing at the part that connects the actual unit to the pipe that connects to the house. When this happens, the unit keeps (for lack of better word) blowing. Although the air that it is blowing is just warm air, not cold at all. Not that I know anything about ac units, (which is why I am on here asking some of you fine men your opinion) but I was thinking for sure that it was dirty coils and/or filter - this just from what I have read about Goodman units. Also, the fact of us having dogs in the house led me to believe the above idea.

I am sorry this is so long. I sometimes say too much or make things more complicated than they are. I desperately hope that one of you great guys can give me some advice on what you think it may be. I will be ever so grateful.

I have a scroll compressor trying to start but won't i can hear it kick in but as soon as I hear it, it kicks out i can't get a reading for pressures cause it won't stay on long enough but i put my amp probe on it and seen amps jumped to about 907 then it kicks out could this mean bad compressor or low on charge

Its not the thermostat.

The things that can cause this problem are lack of or poor airflow over the Evaporator coil. Or a low system charge. Or quite possibly a restriction in the line on the low side. When they replaced the compressor did they purge the line set with nitrogen and pull a deep vaccum? This is imperative when replacing a condensing unit to ensure that no residual particles are left in the line set to create a restriction.

Hope this helps You

Have a Goodman AC unit (model: GSH130421AA) in my two story town home. The upstaris does not cool, however, downstairs does. The outside pipe(?) that leads into the AC unit was frozen; looked like a snow...

Hello, when the pipe freezes up it usually indicates a airflow problem or low refrigerant charge. Check the air filter, blower wheel for any dirt. Also, make sure the blower motor is running. If the airflow checks out good then the unit is low on refrigerant and must be recharged by a hvac technician.

Goodman 3 1/2 ton unit

I work for a very large reputable goodman dealer. Your equipment appears to be a correct match. The correct orfice should have been taped to the outside of the outdoor unit in a baggie right beside where the pipes connect. Things will run alot smoother though if you scrap the orfice and have a TXV installed (thermal expansion valve) . This is a mechanical device that adjusts the flow of freon into the indoor coil based on the immediate needs of the coil. After that, balancing the refrigerant is a piece of cake as all we need is about 10 degrees of subcooling to make sure we have plenty of liquid to the TXV.

Blower fan keeps shutting on/off,

Your blower fan turning on and off shows your thermostat is working. I am willing to bet you have the fan in the automatic condition. Check for a sticking contactor at the outside unit.

Leaking air conditioner unit

I suppose that the water is coming from the unit where the blower motor is. Condensation is created by the evaporator coil while its running and is suppose to drain into a pan under it and through a pipe to the outside. This pipe could be stopped up. The easiest way to fix that is to blow air through the pipe from the outside. It probably comes out close to the outside unit. It could be that your inside filter is dirty causing reduced air flow and making the evaporator freeze too. Change the filter. That may help. There are other steps that you could take if these don't help. Contact me by email if you need to. Cant run over there because I'm in Missouri but may be able to help in a chat room.
