Why did your ac coil ice over?
Usually there is two things that cause coils to freeze up....Air flow restrictions (dirty coils), or Low on freon....Before you ever add freon you must make certain there is no dirty coils....Chris Anderson AlienAC.com
How can you tell when the evaporator coils on an ac unit is bad?
You see mold on the coil, you see ice on the coil, you see dye on the coil with a blacklight after cycling dyed refrigerant through it, you run a halogen sniffer over it and it detects a leak. ...

What does it mean when ac is not blowing?
there are different types of AC units witch makes it difficult to answer your question, but I think the kiss theory works here. Ether your fan is not working or your evaporator coil is iced over. there are several reasons for the coil to be iced over. the main one is it needs to be cleaned dirt and dust will restrict the air flow and cause it to ice over. ...
Why do air conditioner coils ice up when the refrigerant is low?
Any refrigeration or AC evaporator coil has a tendency to ice up when they get cold. Water condenses on the coil when the air is cooled. That water can then freeze. If an AC system is operating correctly it will cool the air and eventually when room temperature reaches the set point the AC unit will turn off, this give any ice that has formed on the evaporator coil a chance to melt. If the system is low on charge, the...
What is difference between 24vac and 240 v ac coil?
These are two different rating coils. I will not take 24V and 240V ac coils in this explanation, I will take low voltage ac coil and high voltage ac coil in the explanation in general. Low voltage ac coils have low insulation in general compared to the high voltage coils since we need more insulation for the high voltage coils. Low voltage ac coils have less no of turns and less diameter of coil compared to high voltage ac coils. But the thickness of...

Why does your central ac work for days then stops and works again days later?
Refrigerant could be low causing the indoor coil to ice up. Leaving it set too low and having it run all of the time when there's not much heat load could make the coil ice up too. ...
Asked in Clutches and Flywheels
If you can run a hot wire from the AC relay to the coil and the clutch engages to the coil but no cold air comes through is the AC relay the problem?
your system probably needs refrigerant gas
Why does the intake grill on a HVAC system ice over and how can it be fixed?
When you refer to the intake grill, what are you talking about and where is it located? There is a return air grill that will never ice over and there is an indoor coil that can ice over. If you are referring to the evaporator coil, the reason it is icing over could be 1. Dirty filter 2. Not enough air blowing accross coil 3. Low on refrigerant, which indicates the system has a leak. Check the outdoor unit and see...
