The main reason that an AC unit freezes up is due to contamination of the Ac filter. This will lead to a blockage of the filter. In the first stages, it will only freeze for some time and then continue to function. However, when this problem is not dealt with, the AC unit may end up stopping functioning completely. In this case, the blockage is permanent.
The filter of an AC unit is contaminated by dust particles among other contaminants that accumulate over a certain period of time. The chance of an AC unit freezing is higher when the unit has been working for a long period. To prevent your AC unit from freezing up, ensure you clean the filter more often. In cases where the filter has been blocked completely, the only option is to replace the filter. Replacement should also be done when the AC unit starts freezing. Not replacing or cleaning the filter on time will end up causing bigger problems. You may end up having to replace the whole AC unit.
