See if ice is on the coils and compressor if so then turn off the ac and let it melt before starting again. The coils could be blocked. A fast solution is to spray a cleaning solution on them with water hose. One can also use a brush. But it is better to consult a technician.

There are a bunch of reasons why this may happen, easily found searching the web. In my case, the problem turned out to be something I had done. I had closed several of the registers in the system in an attempt to save money by not air-conditioning unused rooms in the house. I must have closed enough of them to slow the airflow to the system enough that the refrigerant lines froze up. I opened all the registers, and the problem seems to have gone away.
Many people talk about filters and return air ducts being blocked, but I had not seen any posts which talked about lack of outbound airflow causing flow thru the whole system to slow down. Makes sense, though.

The portion of my central air conditioning unit in my garage is leaking water. Upon inspecting, I see the copper coils are freezing at the ends. Upon melting, the water runs out the bottom. This is something that has only started recently. The system is running and otherwise working well. What needs to be done to remedy this problem?

You can switch off the Air Conditioner to melt down the ice and if problem is more complicated then you can call to mechanic

Insufficient airflow or low refrigerant levels will cause this problem.
Simply replacing the air filter may not be enough. So I suggest you to ask some help from professionals or you may bring your unit in near centers that offer 24/7 emergency air conditioner services.
