Default A/C Freeze up

Long run (10 hours plus) a couple of nights ago and it was muggy so I had the A/C on low and every couple of hours it would quite blowing. You could hear the fan running but nothing coming out of the vents. I had the better half feel around thinking maybe something got sucked into the intake under the passenger side dash and she said it was dripping wet under there. So I turned off the A/C and turned up the heat and after a few minutes it was blowing fine again. Turned the A/C back on and a couple of hours later it repeated. Happened 3 or 4 times all together.

So do I need to take it in to get serviced do you think or was this just a fluke of the conditions?

Regardless of the relative humidity level, a frozen evaporator is not acceptable. I suggest you have it looked at.

It is very possible the drain tube for the unit is clogged and not allowing the water to drain out. Check in the engine compartment on the passenger side on the firewall. You should see a drain hole there.

Can't say exactly where it is but you should be able to find it.

Explore it gently.

Usually when an AC system freezes up like that it tells me you are low on Freon. Take it to a shop and have your pressures checked.

I agree - low on freon - which means it is leaking.
My house a/c did that last summer, they found and repaired leaky line and recharged it.
