Help. Our AH is frozen, inside the unit there is apx. 2" ice above and below (ice inside unit), what can cause this? We don't run the AC too low/much this time of year (Florida) and don't have outside window's etc., open when it's running (to avoid bringing in Humidity).
This afternoon I noticed water dripping from the AH as if the pvc drain was clogged (leading to the outside), so I bleached that outside line, then later tonight when the cool air inside the house had become less cool, I opened up the unit (novice) and BOOM, ice top and bottom.
Is this my problem (my fault), the unit's problem, just normal, what? Can this be AVOIDED in the future? Leaving on Vacation later this week, scared if we leave AC on (not too cool) we'll come home to a broken/frozen unit, with water all over my garage floor (AH is in garage/suspended near ceiling).
ANYthing i can do other than allow the ice jam to melt overnight, clean the unit? clean something? Would rather keep costs lower and clean/fix myself but not against getting the job done right, if indeed there is a job there at all?
Thanks for any and all expertise you can and have provided. THANK YOU.
Hot(ter) in Florida...
