Is the filter clean? If not then the fan cannot draw air thru the coils to exhaust moisture.. and will build up and freeze ..

    Probably the thermocouple then... If it never shuts down..then the only way it can sense temp to know it is at the setting is with the themocouple sensor...When the temp set point equals the feedback it shust off.. similar to a house themostat... Hope that helps

Unit Freezing up and normal causes have been eliminated.

if it is always set on high,it never gets a chance to cycle,it is too small for the area that you want cooled,turn the thermostat to 5 and see if it helps,it will get the room cooler,but,a little slower.

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.

Check for badly bent fins or obstructed/dirt impacted fins on the outside of the unit. Could also be low on gas. Try setting the t/stat to various settings see if its turning off/on at higher settings, if it does most likelt stat is OK. Also make sure you drian is clear.

Sounds like the contactor in the condensing unit is stuck. That is why it will not turn off when the thermostat is satisfied. If the inside air handler is not blowing and the outside condensing unit is running, then this will cause the inside coils to freeze up rather quickly.
The contactor is located in the outside condensing uni in the electrical compartment.
If it is sticking it will need to be replaced.

There are two problems in your a/c. 1. Smell. 2. over freezing. The solution is 1.service the unit completely. 2. replace the room thermostat sensor. Sometimes, the room sensor may be working alright after servicing the unit. All the best.

Carrier A/C unit not cooling..but freezing refrigerant tube.

if the fan isnt running or you dont get enough return air (on the furnace) the coil will freeze up or if you have it set too low it will freeze up overnight, make sure your filters are clean, and that you dont have any return vents (air sucking in) covered with rugs and whatnot. If you have animals, the coil (on top of the furnace) could be clogged with hair, even though you change your filters it still gets clogged with hair and must be cleaned. if your coil was froze up you need to make sure it is completely thawed out, run the fan in the on setting with the a/c off until you dont see or hear any more water then turn it on again. and finially make sure when the furnace goes off (thermostat clicks and is satisfied) the outdoor condenser goes off as well the contactor could have been stuck in the on position. if you cant fix it call someone who can when your coil freezez up it can cause slugging in your compressor (liquid entering the compressor) which will destroy it !!!!!!!!!!!

My unit keeps freezing. How do I stop it?

First, make sure you have it set at a mid temp. Eventhough the thermostat says it will make ice cubes, it isn't supposed to. The unit should cycle on and off with a room temperature of 70 - 72 degrees.

Secont, make sure that the filter and the insode and outside coild are clean. If they are dirty, wash the filter and gently bruch the coild, being careful not to flaten teh aluminum fins.

If you are handy, take the unit outside, remove the cabbinet (and with it UNPLUGGED), spray it down with a garden hose, running water through both coils. Let it dry fro a few hours, put the cover back on and put it back in the window.

If you still get icing, you probably have a low charge. With the cost of labor, and the price of window units, you'ld be better off replacing it than fixing it, unless you have a local air conditioning school that will do it for cost of materials.

Dometic Quick Cool compressor freezing and evaporator coil

Could be low. First check air filter, air flow, and evap coil to see if it has restricted airflow. If all seems well, its probably low. The specs will tell you what type and how much refigerant. To access system, you will need a gauge/manifold set, refrigerant, and a piercing or line tap valve for the low pressure side of the system. Of course, first, you need to locate and repair the refrigerant leak.

Hums and freezes up????

The fan motor must have been stopping. If the fan stops, for sure the fins will freeze because there is no air flowing. common Fan motor problems defective bearing or bushing and starting condenser. If the bearing is defective, it will heat up and seize. Have the fan motor checked. The fact that the fins are freezing, means that there is enough freon and the compressor is working.
