Question about Haier Mechanical Air Conditioner HWF05XC7
Air conditioner makes straining sound when you turn up thermostat and compressor kicks in. Sort of a WHIRRR..WHIRR..WHIRR but if you back the t'stat down the compressor goes off and the sound goes away!
Either compressor is going bad or the fan is rubbing. There is a condensor fan that comes on only when the compressor starts. So check the fan out first to make sure that it is not rubbing or moving around. If that is not then check the compressor by letting it run for about 5 minutes then touch the top of the compressor. BE careful as it can be extremly hot that will show you one of two things either bad compressor or condensor is dirty and a garden hose with a jet blast of water will solve the problem. If that doesnt work either compressor is bad and will either need to be replaced for about 250 dollars or unit will need to be replaced
