Sounds like motor has failed. If the red light is blinking it may be telling you what is wrong by the number of blinks. It maybe locked out for some reason or loose wire. Try turning off breakers to inside unit for 5 mins and try again, this may reset unit. But it sounds like a bad motor or circut board. Try running with stat in on position instead of auto in cooling mode.

This must be a heat pump? Sometimes the unit can be more efficient with this combonation. What you are probably hearing is the reverse direction of the
refrigerant going back through the liquid line.
If in cooling sometimes you can hear a gurgling sound going through the expansion valve, sometimes
this is a sign of low refrigerant or the system is fine..
If you recently had the outdoor unit replaced and noise is an issue, check to see if the unit has isolation pads installed underneath the unit whether
it be on concrete slab or on brackets mounted to
house. Sometimes the new units come with compressor that has a jacket installed over it

Testimonial: "Thanks, I was told that the noise at the TRV valve on the air handler is liguid refrigerant (rattling noise) and that the systems are mismatched."
Hi I am sure this model number is correct and it is a 3 Ton unit.Normally when the breaker trips as soon as you reset it, the compressor is compromised. Happened to me yesterday on a 5 ton heat-pump. When this happens, what you can do if you are a handy type of man, is to prove this. I don't know if the is is a split system or a all in one package unit, doesn't matter. Get to the compressor compartment. Of course the power will be off.If you can see the run capacitor, take a screw driver and short across the terminals to discharge it, as it could have a small amount of juice in it, I doubt it. Anyway, remove the plastic cover to expose the terminals. They can be hard to remove sometimes, just use a screw driver to push the clips in. Wire colors should be black for common, yellow for start, and blue for run. Write down the order they were in. To be safe, tape the metal connectors so they wont touch metal when you turn the power back on. After you have done this, turn everything back on. If the breaker holds and everything else is on, fan and so on, this proves the compressor is probably shorted to ground. If this a/c is rather new, I would replace the compressor. If it is old, I would think about getting prices on a new unit. Just food for thought. Please let me know on the out come of this test, please. When a compressor shorts out, or locks up, it draws what is called locked rotor amps/LRA which could be from 49 on up, and your breaker can be 25, 30, 35 to 40 amps so it will trip. Keep me posted and do this test, it is very easy to do.
