And, it helps the unit smell better,too! You don't need a lot of mothballs. Couple in the basement and a couple in 2 or 3 places close to the floor from the sofa up to the front closet.

Try unplugging the fridge for a few minutes and plug it back in. Mine stopped making ice awhile back and the freezer got extremely cold on its own. Samsung sent a tech out under warranty. He first thought it was going to be a bad heater on the supply line which would have allowed the water line in the freezer to freeze. After realizing that wasn't the problem he said Samsung had sent out a service tip and unplugging it reset it and it's been working fine since. May not fix your issue but it's worth a try.

After running our heat pump some this weekend, I noticed water dripping from the roof as if the A/C was running. After checking into it, I found the coil on the A/C had ice on it and the ice was melting. Is this normal or has anyone else experienced this. This is our first heat pump, and it was working fine the whole time.

Thanks

Cut and paste....

Heat pumps will naturally ice-up in the winter but will periodically go into a defrost cycle to de-ice the coils. This keeps the unit running efficiently. If the coils are blocked by ice, proper heat transfer between the refrigerant and the outside air cannot occur.

Your roof heat pump is like my home heat pump. It just goes in reverse when u ask for heat. That is why when my house ac temp goes below about 35 it goes to heat strips and the outside unit does not run. It is just a reverse cycle ac. So water dripping is the. Same as ac in summer

That is not the way my home heat pumps work (Trane). They continue to run, no matter how cold it gets outside. The electric strip heat is turned on by the thermostat when the temperature falls more than 2 degrees below the set point. When the temperature is brought back up to within 1 degree of the set point, the strip heat is turned off. The 'defrost' cycle is controlled by a sensor on the outdoor coil which detects any ice buildup. The frequency of going into defrost varies by the outside humidity, so defrosts occur more often at around 35 degrees than they do below freezing (if no precipitation). When the unit is defrosting, you will see it dripping as it melts the ice. The heat pumps do an amazing job of extracting heat even when the outside temperature is below freezing. The one condition I find where they don't work well is when it is raining at a temperature around 34 - 35 degrees. The coils are then below freezing, and that rain freezes on the compressor coils rapidly.

Well that depends on ur thermostat. Mine will turn off the outside unit at a preset temp. And than the heat strip turns on. That is why a heat pump thermostat has cold , heat and emergency heat. It just reveries itself. That is a fact and how they work it all depends on ur unit and Tstat. That is heating AC&R 101
