You have to go in for air conditioning service...as this one has a filter/dryer that removes water from the freon stream....also a proportioning valve...these things need to get looked at and the "sight glass" should not have bubbles in it...get some a/c service...have the charge looked at undercharge causes icing....do you hear the compressor engage when you select it?~

Could be as simple as a bad blower motor. Or a bad blower motor relay. Or it could be a bad control head. I'd suggest taking it to a service facility that has an older mechanic that is familiar with these systems. Your local corner garage won't know how to fix this. HTH. -Jim

...they might, Jim...not all of us are simple parts-replacers, but actually know what the data can tell you~
