That means the unit is low on freon or the sealed system has a line blocked in the cap tube or drier. These are major issue and not a DIY repair. Also if you are the guy that closed out the question on me last time wasting my should know that the reason the unit is icing in that spot is because that is where the blockage is and you are getting the pressure drop of freon there causing the blockage
