Outside unit of heat pump system freezing

Posted by Bruce on November 29th, 2001 12:39 PM

The outside unit of my heat pump is freezing when the temperature gets below freezing. You can hear a relay in the area where the capacitor is clicking off and on and the fan is followig this clicking (I think that the fan is trying to come on full speed). I opened the side of the unit and thawed out one of the cylinders (I dont know which one, but there were 2) and the clicking finally quit. The unit then went into a defrost cycle and the fan came on full speed and worked normally for about 30 minutes.
