Question about Haier Mechanical Air Conditioner HWF05XC7
Just got this new ac unit. IT does this weird buzzing noise and is so loud that it repeatedly wakes me up during the night. It only does this when the ac is on, not the fan. I can't sleep with ear plugs in, so that's not an option. Can I fix this? Is this normal? I've never heard an air conditioner so loud.
Fan moves back and forth hits back of fender

How do u find the "compressor and the tube discharge line"???
Posted on Jun 12, 2008
As u said the noise comes when the unit at cool mode, it is clear that the unit makes vibration when compressor is on
I belive that the compressor is fitted with a Rotary compressor which makes more vibration then recip with a jerk.
The noise which is a hissing noise is coming from compressor and from the Tube -discharge line .
pl chk the tube are not touching anywhere, if touching pl clear it by pressing with hand slowly .
Add a weight (rubber) on the discharge to arrest vibrations
this will solve the problem of noise as the vibration.

Is it installed in a window? Check to make sure it is installed correctly. usually there is a felt or foam strip that is used to dampen vibration when you place it in the window. It also acts as seal to keep outside air and bugs out. If you place your hand at various locations on the unit does the sound go away? If it does then you know it is a vibration problem. Just add new foam or re-adjust the foam or gasketing it already has. If that doesn't work then try to locate the source of the noise. Use a mechanics stethoscope or even a cardboard tube from paper towels will work. Once you have located the source then you can tell the store what the problem is when you take it back and get a new one. Cheap air conditioners are noisy. Some more than others, it's why they are cheap. But your problem does sound like it could be a product issue.
