Hello, Why Is My Air Condition Line Freezing?
I Have A 1998 Mazda 626 Glx Hatchback, Did A Conversion From A Fs Engine To A B5 1.8 Dohc 16 Valve Last December. My Lines Were Re-Done, Leaks Repaired And It Was Working Fine. It Still Is Working But The Line Becomes Frozen A Little While After The Ac Is Turned On. An Electrician Suggested I Put In A Thermostat Which I Did About 2 Months Ago, But Now I See The Problem Persisting. I Live In The Caribbean. I Have Also Noticed That The Unit Squeals Sometimes When I Turn It On Or At Ramdom Intervals When It Is On. Any Suggestions Would Be Greatly Appreciated. Thanks. Stephen
Some ice on the return metal line is probably okay, because of the humidity where you live. Wouldn't hurt to have the freon pressures checked, because low freon levels will also do that. What you don't want is any ice in the radiator-like cooler in front of the car radiator. Also, running the unit on MAX cool all the time will tend to add to the ice, as the regular on-off compressor cycling is not used then.
How To Remove Wall Mounted Air Conditioning Units Cover?
I Have An Old Wall/Window Mounted A/C, It Was There When I Bought The House In 2007. It Has Worked O K But Recently It Is Only Blowing Room Temp. Air.A Repair Man Told Me Over The Phone To Save Money, Remove The Cover And Spray It Down With Water From The Outside, But For Some Reason I Can'T Get The Cover Off. I Don'T Know If There Are Some Screws That Im Missing?, Does It Unscrew From The Inside Of The House? Please Help
Yup. Most units have two screws mounted one each on the front left and front right lower corners of the inside part of the unit. Some also have a *shipping screw* mounted inside the faceplate, usually marked with a padlock symbol (if it's there). Once removed, the unit then slides out of the case to the inside of the structure leaving the *shell* behind. At this point, you simply take the unit outside for cleaning. Be aware that some of these beasts are VERY heavy so have a helper nearby. It wouldn't hurt to type in your model # to a search engine and get the installation instructions for it. Most are still available online for free.

Is This Worth It? Look In Good Condition Haven'T Tried It Out Yet..These Things Tend To Be Very Expensive..Worth It?
Locally that much gets you a 20 year old beater- but a still running beater to learn on. Main concern is did it have a title when new and does it have one now. Some of the old Yamaha and Honda's are used in woods and dirt, slightly bent and then rough fixed, keep going couple more years . riders change oil and air filters, adjust chains and will put on a couple thousand miles a year-- but that is during the 6 to 8 months without snow. Helps to know if it is a new stolen 250cc Japanese model or a Chinese 50cc take a chance.
