Compressor makes noise and goes on and off constantly

just installed a new Danby DAC8008EE window AC and it has two problems: 1) it makes a relatively annoying vibrating sound when the compressor comes on; and 2) the compressor only stays on for about 30sec - 1min before going off again and then on again after 3min. This is quit annoying because the noise level changes from quiet to annoying vibrating sound every 3 min. When I removed the chassis from the cabinet in order to install the cabinet in the window (as indicated in the instruction manual) a rectangular block of green dense foam was just lying on the floor. One side of the foam block is tacky like it is supposed to be stuck somewhere, but I am not sure. I have tried to call the Danby customer service number, but it is constantly busy.Any help would be appreciated.Thanks,DG

That foam block is an anti vibration dampening device. My guess is is goes up against the underneith od that compressor. The real problem is with the short cycling compressor. I would return that piece of junk.

First of all, stop running the unit until the problem is recognized. You could void the warranty. Since you are obviously not an a/c man get some help. The loud noise could be coming from packing material that was not removed.

Possible a/c problem, squealing noise constant, but gets better when a/c is turned on.


You did not give the make model and year, and I did not get all of the story.
Are you saying the noise goes away when the ac is on, or off ?

I have a periodic clicking noise while driving my 2009 MKS Lincoln. Anyone have this happen?


The most common cause of clicking (under the hood) while driving is an undercharged AC system. The sound is the compressor constantly turning on and shutting off. The problem could also be related to the temperature control panel which could constantly call for the compressor to turn on and off.

My window air conditioner is making very loud noises and it is not dripping water outside


No condensation means no freon flow in condensor which sounds like bad compressor which would account for the noise. Replacement would probably be most economical way to remedy.

Danby microwave does not heat food and makes loud constant noise


IF the noise is a sound coming from the oven area, its the megatron tube. Typically, replacing the megatron tube is more expensive than replacing wiht a new unit and a new warranty.
