My unit has been cooling to 2 degrees above the thermostat setting. Now a line into the unit in our basement has ice on it. What is the problem?
Make : Raywell
The unit has been turned off to emlt the ice.Everything has been allowed to dry.
Hello I am here to assist you.
There is one of three things that could be wrong with your unit.
The first being a clogged filter. A clogged filter restricts airflow from passing over the evaporator coils.
This causes the coils to freeze.
The second thing it could be is a dirty evaporator. Dirt can form on the evaporator and restrict airflow causing the coils to freeze.
The third possible thing it could be is a low freon charge.
I would first recommend changing the filter. If that does not correct your problem, you will need to call a technician out to check the charge on the unit or clean the evaporator coils which requires removal of the evaporator.
ok .thanks. I will start with the filter. Then call an hvac guy if that does not fix problem.
