Air conditoner freezing up... Specifically the air handler low pressure pipe is freezing up... tsk tsk tsk not good...  


I am not showing in this video the frozen pipe, but... it was frozen.  Since it was frozen, I had to do some research and realized that the possible reason for that can be bad capacitor. Hence what I did is simply ordered new capacitor and replaced the old capacitor.  FYI disregard buy now link.. there is nothing to buy in this resource... it is free, it is just a video me explaining how to replace capacitor in air haindler unit in my home on the 2nd floor.
