Dirty coils would make both sections warmer, but it would be a gradual. It usually isn't enough to stop the unit from freezing items unless it is completely blocked. However, with it being dirty it causes the more heat to be generated and if it goes on long enough it can cause a compressor relay to fail, or damage the compressor itself. The condensor coil doesn't need to be spotless when cleaned, but it does need cleaned on a regular basis.

I was born and raised in the mountains of Arizona, we have mountains as well as the desert. I've lived in different parts of the US over the years and have traveled over a good part of the world. I learned about preventive maintenance while in the Navy, went to school for HVAC/R and electronics after the Navy. I worked for a Factory Service until they decided to close, worked rebuilding PTAC's (motel AC), and also building detectors for PET scanners, and pretesting electronics for nuclear measuring/monitoring equipment. I'm a pain in the butt to most who know me, but they still keep me around. My personality is described as simply complicated.

I enjoy woodworking, my 73 Bronco, music, electronics, and tinkering. Not always in that order.
