Default HVAC help anyone?

Hello my fellow DIY/Handymen.

My small Haier AC unit seems to be acting up.
It appears the cooling unit is covered in frost, which is resulting in it not actually cooling. I tried to scrape a bit away, only to discover ice.

Here is a photo:

Does anybody know what the issue is?
Is it easily fixable?

Thanks Guys!

Ah yes, common on this coast too with non frost-free units.

Too much moisture in the air and/or not high enough air flow.

- Make sure the filter(s) are clean.
- Just turn it completely off for a couple of hours to defrost.

Cheers!
