A/C freeze up

Has anybody had their A/C freeze up, the reason I ask is I was camping on the weekend and I had no cool air so I shut the air off for a 1/2 hour or so and turned it back on and it started to work but blew a little ice out of it, I was wondering if this happened to anybody else.

Yes.
Just had mine in for freezing up.

Frost sensor may have fallen off.
Ducted air vents need to all be open for enough air flow.
They sealed leaks on mine . The leaks allowed air to circulate within the ceiling.
Do you have low flow in ducted vents?

On auto & home ac's that is usually an indication of low freon or whatever is used as a coolant.

This and a neglected indoor filter. Eventually the dirt pulls through the filter and starts clogging the evaporator coil inside. Another possibility is the outdoor coil could be dirty as well. Any time air is restricted from passing through the coils will result in a freeze up.
