You will all have to pardon me as I do not know anything at all about central air conditioners or the proper names of the components.

Therefore, I will post the photos. The bottom, thin pipe always freezes over (even in hot weather) and we have to turn the unit off for a few hours until all of the encased ice melts.

If anyone could shed some light as to what we can do to eliminate this issue, it would be most appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
