SO I thawed it all out again and then I place the stand fan in front of the unit thinking that maybe it wouldkeep it from letting water pile up and freeze. Well what do you know i! It worked! We were cool as ever over the weekend and it was no trouble to wait for the repair guy to get here. It was a clog in the area of the condenser coils. All fixed and good now!
So it's all about the air conditioner again! Look at that iceberg formed around the a/c line. I used the hair dryer to melt it away and then left the fan on the unit running all night to thaw the entire line.
Then it happened again! So I called our usual repair folks at Affordable Heating and Cooling. They said there may be a leak or a clog. Great. They can't get to us until Monday (this was Thursday).
