Air conditioning freezing? Let's check out your unit and ...
If the compressor is running and the evaporator fan isn't, you've already found the main cause of your air conditioning freezing problem.
The indoor coil will freeze up if the compressor runs without the evaporator fan running.
Check to see if ice has built up enough to stop the fan.
If it has, (and it's possible with wall mounted ductless mini split units and some window units), the fan may run...
