Check your air filter and evaporator at the indoor, and also the outdoor condenser coil if clean, be sure that the outdoor has no obstruction to both front and back of the unit. If dirty then clean both indoor and outdoor. If clean let the ice melt by turning of the unit and unplug the power cord or off the circuit breaker to reset the error if error is present. And on the unit again and observe if icing is present when unit is operating. If icing is present after 10 to 30 min of operation then the unit is under charge.And while unit is operating adjust your thermostat to higher temp. to check if thermostat is operating normally. If the outdoor will trip off after the adjusting the temp. then your thermostat control is ok if not then the thermostat control have a problem.

My Amana PTAC allows outside air to come through the entire unit (everywhere). I think that maybe the outside air vent, which is closed) is not secure. Would there be a problem with screwing it shut w

If you can get to the fresh air vent, and it is open, plug it by any means necessary, as long as it's safe. It will not affect the overall operation of the unit.

My outside a/c condensing unit's fan runs, but inside vent air is not cold. compresser may not be running. inside vent air was cold last week. Janitrol ckj361ab is model # of outside unit.

Start the unit and go outside to see if the insulated pipe is sweating or cold, hot air should be discharging from top of outside unit. Since the breaker is not tripping, my best guess is the compressor is not operating. You might have to replace the capacitor.

If you can hear the compressor operating, then most
likely needs refrigerant

Under charge of refrigerant is one of the ice build up in the unit, but try the defrosting method and after all ice are gone operate the unit and check vents if air is present. If no is air present inside the unit may be the blower motor inside has a defect. Its either stock up, burned, or worn out bearing
