Friedrich air conditioning - inside unit ice build up

\015 I own a Friedrich air conditioning system with an external and internal unit. The system works well, but after 2 or 3 days of use, the internal fan blowing the cold air starts to make a rattling noise due to ice build up which gets in its way. After I shut off the system, the inside unit drips as the ice build up melts. I have cleaned the filters and this is not the problem. Please advise what would cause such a problem and potential solutions?\015\012Thank you.\015

Hi,\015\012 Reduced air flow, low on freon or being continuously run during cooler weather such as at night. Some people turn their thermostat on 60 thinking that it will help get it cooler faster. They freeze up at night and don't get a chance to thaw during the day. It needs set no lower than 75 or so. The evaporator may be dirty. Don't know a lot about your particular unit but if the outside unit has the compressor and refrigerant lines running to it, The large refrigerant line should sweat all the way to the compressor if its fully charged. Please rate me if I have helped. Good luck\015\012kstfas
You may have blocked a return vent with furniture or something if so pull it away from the wall a little bit but you have to let it thaw all the way out before you turn it back on
