Tonight I noticed that the air was running and running but the temp wasn't coming down. I then noticed that very little air was coming out the vents. Near the interior unit I found the freon lines were dripping wet, so much so the floor around the unit was a puddle. I checked the condensation drain and it was not clogged. I then pulled the access panel and found the cold air exchange was frozen solid like a block of ice. The reason no cooling could take place is because no air could pass through the exchanger. I left the access panel off so the unit could thaw but I've never seen anything like this before. What could have caused the exchanger to freeze up like that? It looked like a freezer that hadn't been defrosted in 10 years. Is there a fix or is it time for a new HVAC system?
