    The inside unit will not come on until I move the set switch all the way to right and the back the set temperature. The unit will then come on in about 30 seconds as normal

Frost buildup


POSSIBLY faulty door seals allowing outside moisture to enter freezer compartment. This is especially prevalent in older units and/or tropical climate zones [ie high humidity] ... OR if freezer is OVER-LOADED with food items !!!
If you are putting in large quantities of fresh produce to be frozen it is quite often better to PRE-COOL all the items in your refrigerator PRIOR to placing in your FREEZER as they will usually have a high moisture content which will cause frost build-up in your freezer ...

Wine cooler frost buildup


Some dual temperature wine coolers build up frost in the rear and top of the main compartment. Check the defrost timer, located either inside the main compartment near the light, or outside on the back of the wine cooler near the compressor. Look in the owner's manual for the correct settings for the defrost timer and adjust yours as needed. Make sure that you have the wine cooler in a spot where the outside temperature remains at or near room temperature to reduce frost buildup.

Ice forms inside unit -frost buildup-on outside-out side fan shaking unit fan running fo r ours


First to solve your icing problem. Due to indoor coil & air filter blocked or short of gas ice formation will be there. And also check the speed of blower motor, if less rpm, change capacitor for blower motor.
Service the unit also.

Second, for shaking the unit means your out door fan cracked or broken. Check and replace it. Is it helpful?

We have a window unit model ash08fas1 and it is leaking water into the window to our carpet. Does this model come with a drip pan or plug that needs to be moved? And how do we access it?


Look at your unit from outside the house. The back of the air conditioner should be slightly lower than the front. If it is level or the front of the air conditioner is lower it will drip into the house. Some window units have a drain for the water outside and some don't. Look for a hole in the bottom of the unit outside and if you find one make sure it is not plugged. Also dirty coils can cause a frost buildup on the inside of the unit. This will drip also. If this is the case you should see the ice buildup by removing the front cover or removing the front filter.

Bottom freezer model.. looks like shaved ice all over inside.. not sure why it is frost free...


u most likely have a defrost component out that is causing ice buildup. this will start blocking the flow of air and cause cooling problems. usually it will be one of 3 things. defrost heater, bi metal defrost terminator or defrost timer or on some units an adaptive defrost control. this problem takes about 7 - 10 days to start causing a problem. removing all frost behind panel will buy you as much time.

Window A/C Air Filter is Soaked


There is a drain tube that usually runs to the outside that is suposed to carry the water away from the unit. It may be plugged. You could use a shop-vac from the outside to pull it through. If you have compressed air you can blow the obstruction out to the inside. Be aware this could make a mess on the inside! After clearing the drain line I would leave the unit off for an hour or so just in case there was any frost building. Then turn the unit back on. If it continues to get wet then the unit may not be leveled correct, or maybe it is low on refrigerant causing the frost on the inside.

Do you have any frost on the lines going to the outside unit. If the large line is frosted your evaporator (Cooling coil in the furnace) could be frozen up. Operating it with the fan in automatic with the cooling on will sometimes be the cause of this condition.

If there is not frost on the large line going to the outside unit and you are getting air circulation inside the house the problem could be a loss of refrigerant charge. Look at the joints where the pipes were soldered to the inside and outside units for signs of oil. If you find oil at any point it is the indication of a refrigerant leak.
