Why isn't it cool in here?

Go outside, nothing blocking the AC. Hmm begin to walk away when I see an inch of ice around the return refrigerent line. Hmm

Go inside check screens. Replaced in May. “Hmm.” (google) clean inside of evap coil, by removing side cover. (Removes exterior), “Oh you MFer”

So unable to fully remove the side panel lets take a look..

Oh dear. This is some JRITS bad. vacuum blowing from the top did nothing. Had to take a lint brush and scrap it off while spraying AC coil cleaners from the top, bottom top again. More brushing, more blowing, more spraying and repeating a few more times. Each time more gunk coming out of the fins.

Much better and cool air.

I mended a thing!!!!!!!!

I do recommend some cleaner spray to help loosen up the gunk in the fins. make sure it is safe for use on plastic trays.
