Are you saying the lines are icing back to the compressor?
The unit is likely low on freon and will need to be recharged.

When it is running you should see liquid freon flowing through it, if it is icing like that it is low. 99.9999%
Why dont you just get a pressure gauge and see what the pressures are on the system to see if the unit is low on freon or not that would be the best way to tell. If you want another tech just rate my service and this will be posted out to other techs

Ok you will need to inspect the secondary heat exchanger for restriction, it is accessible by removing blower and just above that will be it, it looks like a radiator coil and tend to get blocked, if it is use a brush and vacuum to remove all deposits
Good job, just goes to show that there is all kinds of issues with all kind of causes.
