Remove the Ice

Remove the ice and correct the problem

Iced coils are most often the result of 1) dirty evaporator coil   2) dirty filter   3) low refrigerant charge   4) bad fan motor or fan motor capacitor 5) stuck condenser contactor.

Removing ice from an evaporator coil may be expedited by 1) operating heat pump systems in the heat pump mode:   2) CAREFILLY cycling the furnace   3) leaving the blower fan in the on position.  Caution should be taken not to exceed the normal operating parameters of any of the equipment involved and EXTREME CAUTION should be taken to avoid and water damage due to excess volumes of water drainage.
