Question about Heating & Cooling
My Frigidaire 15,000 BTU window AC, about three weeks old, makes a knocking sound. How can I be sure this is part of the ''normal sounds'' described in the manual--the pinging and clicking you hear when water drops hit the compressor? The machine has large vents on top where I can imagine some object might have fallen in--maybe I can look in there to see. Any suggestions on what to do before calling a service person? Thank you!
Knocking happens when the compressor is faulty. The clicking is often the overheat Klickson switch clicking on and off. If is three weeks old, call it in under warranty.

A few things may cause a grinding noise during the spin cycle. If the washer fills normally, but when it starts to AGITATE or SPIN, it makes a noise, this is usually caused by a bad motor coupling, bad transmission, basket drive assembly, or drive motor that's starting to fail. I also wouldn't rule out the clutch. It's really hard to tell without being there to see and hear what it is doing. I would also hate to tell you to call a repairman, but it may be wise in this situation because, even if you DO know what the problem is, it may be beyond your capabilities to repair. I could give you step by step tips on how to replace the parts, but diagnosing the CORRECT one would be the challenge. I hope this helps you some. PS The likely suspect in this case would be the transmission. Not a guarantee, but a guess.

Well you may want to have a tech come out and check the freon level, but mostly when going into defrost, some units make alot of noise, the freon is reversed in the unit by way of the reversing valve, it makes a whooshing sound like freon is draining off, as far as the knocking noise, could be as I said in the beginning, might be low on freon, but it could be that, this particular unit does this, I have had units make some really strange noises in the past but functioned perfectly, hope this helped, please let us know, thanks again,
