    You don't mention other evap temp., sounds like that valve is not opening causing lower than normal suction pressure on functioning coil, this will cause icing as the unit run times are longer without both txvs functioning. Problem most likely in the warm coil. good luck

    Mike, ya probaly got a dead powerhead on the TX valve that's NOT feeding refrigerant.

    You said that "other coil is not affected". Does this mean the other coil is good temp?

    Your lookin for about 12 degrees over the coil, maybe a little more. Maybe fourteen to fifteen degree split across the coil.

    So... if the good coil is doing 12 to fifteen and the other coil is flodding back ... frosting up the evaporator ... maybe you have a TX overfeeding.

    More info please.
