Make sure you let the blower run for a while after it freezes to make sure there is no more ice. Then run the unit. Check the refrigerant lines the large copper line that has insulation on it should be cold to the touch. If it runs for 10 minuits and is barely cold or warm you are low on refrigerant. If its starts out nice and clod then check your filter and retun ductwork for blockage you should not have noisy return air vents or that can indicate you have too small a return.

Also are the outdoor unit and indoor coil a match? Same tonage?
Is the furnace big enough to handle the tonage? (fan size)

Why does my central air keep freezing up?


An air conditioner freezing up is either low airflow or low on refrigerant. If the filter is clean, then check the refrigerant level, blower running at proper speed, make sure indoor coil is not dirty or restricted. Make sure that the duct outlets are all open and some have not been closed.

Ac unit in the house keeps freezing up, not a window unit, central unit. The entire part inside keep freezing up, making knocking noise, and not blowing cool air. The out side part is fine, no problems...


There is a coil out side in the unit , it needs cleaning, there is an acid that is used to clean it. Its an easy job, pull the top open and use a stick or something to keep it up so you can spray the coil, with the unit off let soak 10 mins then spray wash with water hose. done

My A/C blowing air, but it is not cool. It has started freezing up. We just replaced the air filters and since then it is freezing up. We even gently cleaned the a/c coils before replacing the filters. ...


Hello, sounds like it is either a low charge or lack of airflow, what type of filter are you using? sometimes those filters that claim to be super effecient will actually cut down on your airflow and cause the ac to freeze up.

Freezing of low pressure pipe 24 BTU


A line or coil freezing is a sign of restricted air flow or low on freon. Make sure the fan that circulates the cold air is working and the filter and coil at the filter are clean. A dirty coil can be cleaned with coil cleaner and a water hose. You will need to remove the unit and take it outside. (window units only) You can buy a bottle of coil cleaner at any hardware store. Follow the instructions on the bottle but basically you spray the coil until soaked wait 5 minutes and flush it clean with water from a hose. Repeat if necessary. Try not to get water and cleaner on the controls. Be careful water will be trapped in the unit you may want to tip it toword the back for 10 minutes or so and if possible let it set outside to dry. Reinstall the unit and put a clean filter on it and give it a try. If ice forms again it is low on freon and will require a repairman to fix it. Freon is a restricted item and you have to have a license to buy it. good luck..

Frigidaire central unit freezing up leaking


The coil freezing can be caused by a couple of things. 1) Not enough air flow over the coil or 2) A low refrigerant charge. First make sure that the indoor fan is running. Then check your air filters and make sure your evaporator coil is clean. After that you can get the refrigerant charge checked. The lower the refrigerant pressure is, the lower it's boiling point is and when it gets below 32F then the evaporator coil and usually the low pressure line freeze up. The leaking you were talking about is probably from the ice melting. Hope this helps.

Lines freeze in central air unit


If you are not certified to do H V A C then I highly recommend that you call in the pro's. However there is something you as a homeowner can do. Start by checking the air filter. if it is too dirty it will slow the air flow across the coils and cause the coils ti ice. The line freezing is a sign that your coils are beginning to ice or already have. This is also true if the coils are dirty. You can check this by removing the air filter and using a flashlight to look up inside of the air handler. If they are dirty then you can clean them with a solution of water, mild dish detergent and a soft bristle brush. Be sure to rinse them thuroly. If this does not fix the freezing problem then you may very well have a small leak and need to have some refrigerant added. hope this helps. Good luck.
