Air handler and compressor mis match?

I have a Heat Controller air handler model #AHB1348-OB serial #R0709080057 and a Goodman compressor model #GSCI30601BC serial #0807046105 Can these 2 units work together. The reason that I ask is that the coil for the compressor continues to freeze. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

I think you mean the coil in the air handler is freezing? Offhand, it looks like the Goodman is 5 tons while the Heat Controller is 4 tons. You'll need to know the number off of the indoor coil. Can you give us some history of what's been going on?

Correct...the coil is freezing. The history is this. Brand new house, moved in November and this is the first summer using system. The compressor is for the 1st floor and basement. Every time we turn that "zone" on the coil freezes after about 45 mins. to an hour of use and then I have to turn the system off. Someone came over to look and the system and told me just what you said, 5 ton compressor with a 4 ton air handler. So I am wondering if that is the problem and if anyone has any thoughts as to what else might be causing it. Where do I find the "number off of the indoor coil?"

The coil number would on a label on the coil. It's possible that a 4 ton AH could have a fan capable of moving enough air for 5 tons. What speed on the blower motor are they using for cooling?
