maybe the electrical engineers here can help.

Not sure if its the compressor problem or a lack of gas.

my compressor continues running even though the fancoil is turned off. And it freezes up the external piping and the fancoil (the grey small fins behind the air filters become covered with ice).

only when i turn off the main, the compressor fan stops turning and the ice melts.

After defrosting, when i turn it on back, the air is cool and after about 30mins or so, it starts to freeze up.

possibly due to lack of gas that the compressor keeps turning or some electrical malfunction to the compressor?

tia!
