Unplug the condenser unit from the outside power source or turn the circuit breaker to the off position. Allow the ice to melt from the unit.
Turn the air conditioner back on and raise the temperature on the thermostat. Check the evaporator and air handler fan to ensure it is turned on at the same time as the compressor unit.
Remove the blower by taking off the bolts of the blower control panel, using a ratchet. Remove the bolts holding the blower in place. Clean the blades of the blower, using a soft brush, running the bristles along the fan blade to prevent bending. Replace the blower and test the unit.
Replace the filters if they are dirty, using the model number printed on the side of the filter.
Things You Will Need
- Ratchet set
- Inspect the ductwork going from the inside air conditioning unit and the compressor outside. Call in a repair technician if the ductwork is collapsed or damaged.
