this will be a a air flow problem up filter-stopped up A coil-Dirty blower and so on. That is provided that it is a existing unit that has worked in the years past. If its a new install a oversized condensing unit will do the same thing.

JWWebster:
Your inside coil is probably dirty. This causes the freon to liquify and freeze the slimey wet buildup on the coil. Removing the slime and spraying on a good non rinse foaming coil cleaner will probably cure the problem.The air filter needs to be clean also.

Icehouse:
If your coils and filter check your "TEET" Target Evaporator Exit Temperature.
This is done by using two thermometers. Place one in the return air grille and the other at the first register comming off the air handler.
You are looking for a 20* F difference.
