Front grill


Check the air filter and if it is dirty, replace..
Turn equipment off and let the ice melt.
After ice melts, place a/c in cooling mode and set the thermostat to 3 degrees below room temp display.

The indoor unit fan should start blowing cold air immediately and then turn off once the room temp drops one degree below the cooling temp setting.
If the indoor unit does cycle off, check the outdoor unit and make sure it turns off at the same time.
If the outdoor unit continues to run and the indoor fan is not running, the indoor unit will ice up.
A defective compressor relay that is stuck in a closed position will cause icing of the indoor unit because it keeps the compressor running when it should turn off with the indoor fan.

Do you have an error code being displayed on the controller?
Is there an led light that is flashing on the indoor unit?

Another possibility causing the indoor unit to ice up is if the freon in the system starts to get low.
Make sure the ice has all melted for this next check.
Pretty easy to check without special tools.
If the air filter is clean and there is no dust/ dirt blocking the fins on the indoor unit, turn a/c back on to cool and check that the indoor unit fan comes on and is blowing air good.
Once everything seems to running good go to the outdoor unit.
There will be two lines with black rubber insulation covering them.
Peel back the insulation three inches on each line and observe the copper lines.
If either line starts to frost up the a/c system is most likely low on refrigerant.


Another cause of indoor unit icing could be that the aluminum fins behind the air filter are clogged with dust or other foreign material.
This would block the air that must be pulled in causing the indoor unit coil to become too cold due to lack of air flow and it will ice up.

Operating the cooling system when the outdoor temperature is below 60 degrees can cause the indoor unit to ice up also.

There is ice on the grill and it is not giving cooling


Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. First thing to do is turn the unit off and check the filter then if the filter is okay check to see if the blower comes on when you put the fan switch on the thermostat from auto to on. If the blower isn't coming on then there could be a problem with the blower motor. If the motor is running then turn the system to cool and turn the setting down to where the air should be on. Then check the outside unit and be sure the outside unit is running if the outside unit is not running go to the house panel box and check the breaker to see if any of them are tripped or off. If there off turn them on and check the outside unit again. If all is running and you get no air flow through the vents then the coil could be frozen. If the unit is frozen turn the thermostat to off and leave the indoor blower on by leaving the fan switch in the on position for a couple hours till it thaws. If the unit froze up then there could be a problem with the a/c system most likely low on refrigerant as a result of a leak. I would have it leak tested and repaired if this is the case.

The indoor unit was frozen and later it turn off. After that I turn on the unit it works for an hour and turn off again.


Hello
There are 3 possible reasons.
1 Check your filter.If its dirty or clogged then replace it.
2 Dirt dust on the inside coil.Use a spray cleaner such as simple green and spray the coil completly.Then rinse it by spraying water on it.
3 Low on freon.A low charge of freon will cause low pressure and cause ice to bulid up.
In this case you will need to have a service person come out to find the leak and recharge the system.

My airconditioner is not cooling enough what could be the problem


Make sure the outdoor fan is running and check your air filters. Also make sure the indoor and outdoor coils are clean. If all is good then get the refrigerant charge checked.

My split system gets cold for 1/2 hour then blows hot air, and then it will only blow hot air


1. Check to make sure everything in the condensing unit (outside unit) is running....compressor, fan motor. If you do not have electrical experience, contact a qualified service technician.
2. Check to see if the condensing coil is clean. In many cases this can be cleaned using a garden hose.
3. Check to see if there is any ice or visibly frozen areas. If so, ensure your air filter and your evaporator coil (coil in the air handler) are clean. Ensure your return grille and supply vents are open and not blocked.

Hope this helps. Good Luck! :-)

Kenmore tx5300 less than 2 years old ice on outside pipe system trying to cool down, system set at 70 house inside temp 78 led light on inside system says operating normal could it be lines plugged out if...


The lines that are frozen are not ones you can run bleach through. The best way to troubleshoot this one is to first turn off the unit and put it fan only mode to thaw and de-ice the coils. Then check the air filter to be sure that it's clean and that there's nothing blocking the air flow. If the filter is clean then you should check the coils just beyond the filter. Check to be sure that the coils are clean and free of dust and debris. If the coils are clean then you may be low on freon. At this point it does require a certified A/C technician to leak test and charge the system. These are the problems that would cause your unit to freeze up. Hope this helps, good luck!

It's spitting ice crystals when turned on, and is very noisy.


I'm in a similar situation with a physical neccessity for a/c, year round, even though I live in temperate New Jersey. My husband is an A/C / Refrigeration tech & here's some things you can try to fix your Haier A/C.
1.) Make sure you keep the area where the filter is clean, if you aren't using a filter, you are clogging the air flow much quicker, which can lead to freeze ups.
2.) Due to how shoddy things are made now-a-days & with the storm coming through, you may have a conked out compressor or may have a small refrigeration leak, which can also cause freeze ups.
3.) Make darned sure that the unit is level, if you find it is not, leave your unit off for at least 24 hours for the refrigeration gas & oil in the system to level off.
Sadly, I do not know the model or type of Haier A/C you have & as I'd mentioned, things are no longer made to last like they once were & to get 3 years from a newer model is likely to be the best you can hope for. Haier is fairly decent with wanting to keep up customer morale & if it's a newer unit (younger than 18 months), they may help you to repair it for free or low cost. Good luck with that!

Four things cause icing up:
( 1 ) Is your filter clean? dirty filter blocks air flow causing iceing up. replace filter
( 2 ) Do you hear the Indoor fan running? If the fans not running the unit ices up. Check Capacitor to fan if good.
Bad fan motor... replace fan motor and cap. If both good
( 3 ) Check Air Handler evap coil if dirty and or clogged, restricts air flow causing unit to ice up. Use toilet brush to clean.
This is always a big possibility if you have pets.
( 4 ) If the above are not present then you are low on refrigerant.
Low refrigerant will cause icing up because the gas does not flash properly. This will require a service tech.
refrigerant leaks can be as simple as a loose cap on the king valve, leaking schrader core, to coil leak.
Have the service tech show you the leak. If it is in a copper line it can be fixed. If the system is over 10 years old limit the amount you want to spend. 10 years is the standard life expectantcy anymore. Good luck

I have a Kenmore model # phjk048-1 heating and AC unit with iced up coils.


Test run the unit, if still icing coil is present it means that the unit is under charge, need to add refrigerant but first be sure that no leaking pipe so leak test the piping.
