Check your air filter or evaporator coil for obstruction due to dirts. If it is clean, it may be have some leak. You need a qualified technician for this problem.

Rv heat pump problems


Open circuit or out of range Freeze Sensor. Air conditioner mode of operation will be locked out. Furnace, heat strip, heat pump and fan mode of operation can continue to operate but displays the last temperature set-point. There is a sensor that detects evaporator freezing, it may be bad or your freezing because of low freon levels

My LG window conditioner and heater is freezing 8000 btu. Started after I cleaned


Short of gas. Check the running amps. If it's minimum 2 amps less than actual (in the name plate) amps, gas leak is confirmed. Call serviceman to rectify it.

Throws or sprays lots of water out the front on a daily basis which is soaking the carpet and furniture. The window unit is over ten years old and has been running non-stop for at least 5 years.


Hi,
It sounds like that unit is getting a bit low on charge and is freezing up a bit....maybe even needs a good cleaning of the indoor coil... that would make it freeze also.

Coil freezes over.i un plugged the freeze control because the ac kept shutting down befor it cooled down.


Hi,
That should only be a temporary fix...if you let it like that the coil could freeze completely over causing major water damage...
The most likely causes are a plugged air filter or an under charged condition...the under charge is a sympton of a refrigerant leak...just adding refrigerant sill only solve the problem for a short time...

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

My window Arctic King isn't removing moisture. No


I've been looking for your manual but so far, not luck. I'll keep looking.
If unit runs for long periods of time, it very well could freeze up. Unit will dehumidify any air that is blown over the cooling coil (evap).
Does your unit drip water while it is running? If not, it may be low on freon. Has it ever worked right? I am assuming it is a window unit and not a "Thru the wall" type.
The parent company is Midea-American. Their web site offer virtually nothing but sales pitches. Big waste of time. They work with Toshiba and Carrier but don't know to what extent.
I suggest running the unit one day with the damper in one position and the next day run it in the other position and see if there is any real difference.

Hope this is of some help. Good luck and I'll keep looking.

One head freezes


You are short of refrigerant, the evaporators (heads) run in series and if you run short of refrigerant one of them will have reduced or no cooling depending on the amount of refrigerant left in the system. You should make sure that a leak in the system is found before just recharging the system or you will have to do it again in the near future.

It keeps freezing over in a short period of time.


I am guessing that this is a window mounted unit??

The main reason for an air conditioner freezing over is that it is not getting enough air flow. You should replace your filter, make sure not to fold over any of the soft metal fins, you may also have build up in these fins and that too will restrict air flow and cause the unit to freeze up.

If this is central air, then the same thing is true, start with the filter, but remember that you need to let the system breath. Do not close off to many vents in your home thinking that you are going to save money, in fact this can cause your power bill to increase because the system has to work harder and hotter.

If the unit continues to freeze up, you should have a certifed A/C tech come out and take your air conditioner apart and clean it. If it's a window unit it might be better to just replace it all together.

Hope this helps your problem,

Glenn
