    So, is that a Trane compressor in an ICP unit?

    Is there any circumstance where a condenser coil can frost up?

    With that being said, is it even posible for the Condensor and compressor to freeze up (like in the picture's the op posted) on a 99 degree OD temp with indoor temps as the op stated?


    Pro's, please respond, jokes aside. I dont see how a restriction, like a LL filter, low airflow, or anything can cause this massive CU freeze over on a typical summer day and still achieve cooling in the home.
    I've seen several ice monsters around compressors, but not on the condenser coil. I have photos of the testing of a five ton Goodman condenser operating with the compressor encased in ice.

    Wasn't quite as pretty as snowball. The five ton Bristol recip had beeb grossly overcharged to compensate for a completely blocked indoor coil. It was basically an ice machine.

    If you look at the pic of the compressor, you can see the edge of the Trane unit he/someone took a pic of.
    ...we have a winner.

    that first pic actually is a pic taken during a home inspection. not mine, but i got a laugh when i first saw it...

    the threadkiller was insisting on a pic of the sprinkler on it....

    wasn't sure where this fishing trip was gonna end up on a saturday night but it was all good.....and please, watch your step while leaving the boat.

    Yes, having service done on your unit is indeed a service and does cost money. ...
