The technician came for a routine tune-up of my AC and discovered that the conductor and capacitor were broken. The technician replaced both parts and we both discovered that over the winter months the faulty conductor and capacitor had caused the AC to continue running resulting in the condensation in my unit to completely freeze up (no kidding, there was a solid block of ice on the coils of my AC unit). The technician took the time to fix the problem by melting the ice with hot water (which took almost a couple of hours) and then tested the level of refrigerant in which he determined there was a leak in either the condenser coil or the evaporator coil (hence the freezing of my AC unit). The cost to detect and fix the leak was too much to cover out of pocket, so I declined chose to go through my home warranty company to detect and fix the leak. However, I am thankful to the provider for identifying the problem and doing everything he could to fix the problem the most cost-effective way possible.
