If the noise goes away fairly quickly, it's perfectly normal. what you are hearing is the compressor beginning to work. compressors require extra power to start because pressures have to be de-equalized in the system, and that is why it makes that noise. now, if the noise continues as long as the compressor runs it may be getting old and worn, but could still last a long time. check freon pressures if possible to verify that the system has the proper charge, sometimes that can affect how it sounds, too.

Ford F250 Super duty V10 AC stopped working and now I hear a noise when I turn fan on


The a/c noise is either the clutch going bad and slipping which is very common on the V10. When its slips its not pumping, a clutch kit can be bought at any parts house for around $45-$50.00. About 30 minutes to put on. The other is a pump bearing going bad, which isn't a quick fix and needs the whole pump replaced, if that's the case always replace a new dryer when replacing the pump,, I would put money on the clutch...

When I turn on the ac or heater I notice that my engine starts making a funny noise. When I step on the accelator it sounds like a pulley is making a strange noise


you may have an a/c compressor clutch and or clutch bearing going bad. may be time for a new a/c compressor or compressor clutch assembly. the a/c comes on when you have the defrost or recirculation on in heater mode.
