Question and Answers

Q:

air conditioner/heat pump (Kenmore Model 58075124500) keeps freezing up with ice - can coolant be added

A:

Jacqueline sent you an answer with some suggestions to try for preventing icing of the coils. Here are some other suggestions.

Coolant can be added to the refrigeration system of the air conditioner. This requires a special valve to tap into the system and the valve should be removed after the refrigerant is added. If the air conditioner needs coolant, there is a leak in the system and the leak should be repaired. This work is best done by a certified air conditioner technician.

Before adding freon or scheduling service, remove the front cover and the filter and inspect the evaporator coil for blockage. Any thing that slows down the air flow will contribute to the evaporator coil freezing.

If the air conditioner only freezes at night, increase the fan speed and increase the temperature control. If the fan is running slow and the temperature drops the evaporator can freeze.
