Frozen A/C Help!
Posted 19 September 2006 - 03:25 PM
Though the temps are going down, Texas is still hot at times, especially if your a/c just froze! The temp outside is lower than in the house! :shock: The hose going from the house to the a/c unit outside has frosty-icey-snow in places. The inside of the a/c unit outside has frozen hoses too. My hubby said it turn on the a/c inside the house and wait for it to thaw. He's been having to replace the filters more often lately. We need advice on this problem. I like snow, but not on my a/c

First, turn off the A/C but leave the indoor fan on by setting the thermostat fan switch to "ON" (usually set on AUTO) - allow the system to completely thaw out (by the time you see ice outside the coil inside is a block of ice)
once thawed check the vents for air flow...does it feel normal?
when the A/C is turned back on take some temperature measurements
1 - room temperature & outdoor air temperature
2 - air supply temperature at a vent (colder than room temp)
3 - temperature of insulated line(pipe temp under insulation) at outside unit
4 - how long does it typically take before you notice the system has frost on the lines?
post these temps and whatever information you think is relavent and we'll see what we come up with
