I'm not sure of the model number, the only number I'm seeing is EB15B so I'm hoping that's what it is.
A couple days ago I noticed the carpet around the inside unit was damp, it happened to me about 2 years ago and I cleaned the coils with a aerosol cleaner and that solved the problem. However this time I've done the same thing and I noticed last night that it was still leaking. I cleaned it again even though it wasn't really dirty in hopes that maybe I didn't do a good enough job the first time. This morning I woke up and now the unit won't turn on. As soon as I turn it on the copper pipes and the metal coils form ice all around them and it feels like there's cool air coming from it. Is there anything I can do or do I need to bite the bullet and have a pro come take a look?

Call in the pro's, sounds like a Freon charge may be needed.

I talked to a buddy of mine and he told me to try to just turn the fan on, I did it and nothing happened so he said it might be my blower. He's going to come look at it later, I'll post later to let you know what he says. Thanks.

Turns out that it was just the relay so it wasn't anything major. The unit is still leaking so now we have to take top part out (evaporator coils?) and pressure wash it since there doesn't seem to be any noticeable leaks in the pan and my friend is thinking maybe the inside is clogged which is why it's not draining properly. In the meantime at least we have cold air again in the Texas heat. Any ideas or other suggestions would be greatly appreciated as the leaking is concerned so maybe I can see if I can do it myself.

Not sure how old your unit is but alot of the early pans were metal. They develop pinhole leaks as they rust away under the coils. If it's plastic be sure it has a bit of forward pitch to it. The only other thing you can do is be sure the drain tube is clear it's entire length, easy to do, just stick a wet vac hose on the other end of it.
