Sounds like the compressor in your air conditioner has a broken spring in it,you can not take the compressor apart to fix,has to be replaced(cashy).I assume your camper is shaking,and the noise only happens when you turn on the air.

Loud air conditioner on 2017 Guld Stream 188rb Conquest


You need to get on to of your camper and remove the cover, typically a few larger screws and maybe washers will secure the housing cover; (is: the AC's on my unit has 3)

1. Check for any foreign objects between A/C (air conditioning) fan and cooling radiator, producing this loud noise. It is not uncommon for a small animal to have gotten on top of your camper and made its way inside the housing, especially if it has been in storage.

2. Look to see if you have any damaged or missing can blades. If material is missing, the balance could be off causing vibrations. It would also be a good idea to see if any hardware is loose and only needing to be tightened.

3. Having a person to assist, have that person turn on the AC and listen for a loud noise comming from the fan's electrical motor. Like any regular electric motor, bearings can wear out and squealing or other noises will be hear before it finally stops completely.

4. It the unit is not cooling enough of not getting as cold as it once did, you may need to get the coolant recharge, typically an authorized HVAC tech can do that.

5. If the AC is not blowing any cold air at all, most likely the part that is bad (cannot recall exact name right now) is like a coil; black, round, a little bigger then a quarter in diameter and a couple inches long with a couple wires on it. If you have a manual with a diagram, you may be able to locate that part.

Above all else, if there are compounded issues going on, you may want to consider a replacement instead of buying several various parts, depending on the age of the AC you have right now. It may cost a little more but a new one will come with a warranty and be more efficient.

There is ice forming on the evaporator coils. This is either from a low freon charge or a leak in the seals or windows and doors. Could also be that the drains are not working and water is building up and freezing

Whynter Portable Air Conditioner Model: ARC-14S. Problem: It sounded as if something fell inside the unit while it was operating (cooling) then it started to vibrate horribly. The vibration is only...


Hi,Whynter Portable Air Conditioner has many moving parts, and they all make noise and cause vibrations. Some of these parts are more likely to causing shaking and loud noises, and sometimes this signals a larger problem, something to watch and scrutinize. If serious enough, it calls for a repair.

Loose Parts

Loose parts cause the majority of shaking and vibration noises in your air conditioner. A few of the most common loose parts include the air compressor, the piston rods and even the fan or blower unit itself. These noises are clunking, clanking sounds that occur along with a vibrating action. The only method of repair is a complete compressor replacement, which is a repair only a certified air conditioner technician is qualified to make. The compressor is a fully sealed component, so individual parts in the compressor cannot be repaired.

Fan Blades

Fan blades cause noise, shaking and vibrations even when properly secured. If fan blades contact the exterior structure of the air conditioner due to a bent fan blade or broken and misaligned grate, a constant, repetitive noise and vibration results, which sounds like a ticking or banging from the interior of the air conditioner. Vibration in this case is limited but still present.

Mounting Brackets

When an air conditioner shakes, there is a problem with the mounting brackets. These brackets hold the air conditioner compressor steady as it operates. Normal vibrations and shaking would otherwise occur without these brackets. A loose mounting bracket causes the air conditioner to rock back and forth and creates a clanking sound. As the compressor starts up, this rocking and clanking sound begins, resulting in a very loud and fast vibration and noise. It also occurs when the unit shuts down.

Other Sounds and Vibrations

Sometimes air conditioners squeal, hiss, hum or screech. Each noise is often accompanied by a vibration. Humming sounds along with a vibration may indicate a bad capacitor, the electrical part responsible for starting the machine. Hissing sounds tend to indicate a pressure problem while screeching and squealing sounds are fairly common in window air conditioners and in central air conditioners. This sound is also a result of the compressor motor. It usually starts when the unit turns on and continues through its normal operating cycle. Vibrations always occur in the air conditioner due to moving parts and the compressor motor's operation.


Hope it helped..

You should be able to turn the fan motor freely by hand. If there is any resistance or the noise turning it by hand, then the fan motor is definitely bad. Is it a wall thermostat unit or manual controls? Wall thermostat, you can use a jumper wire from the 12+ terminal of the thermostat to the HG terminal and the fan should come on, if not, then the motor is bad.

Hello Eric,

Let me see if this will be of any help take the front cover off and check to see if any packing material has fallen down in the air baffle. this will be towards the top of the unit on the inside. Also check to make sure that any insulation seems to be in place.
