These issues may be related.

When running the natural gas fired furnace we get an odor that smells like burning electrical wire. The blower seems to work O.K.

When running the AC the condensing lines frost badley.

In addition to these two issues the HVAC system cycles on and off very frequently.

Any ideas, don't want to say what I think it may be so I get some fresh ideas.

Thanks for the help,

The forced air heating system is origial equipment from '83 and the AC system was added shortly thereafter. Burners appear clean although I'm sure none of the system's components have been serviced in at least 5 years or longer.

I should add that this is a southern California home, just north of LA.
