Loud Popping Sounds

Our Ge Zoneline Unit AZ55H15DAB is two years old. This fall, it had started making loud popping sounds and rattling noises when the compressor clicks on. The popping sounds are louder as the temperature becomes colder. The AC part of this unit worked fine this summer. The manual says that the popping sound is water hitteng the fan blades however it never happened for two winters. Anyone have an answer?

Re: Loud Popping Sounds

Solution - Check the internal cabling for short circuit from damage of insulation layer. Especially the electronic control board housing the switches. Replace the worn cables or tape them up with insulation tape.
Fault detection- Am not familiar with your model. But I had the same fault with a 1.5 ton window aircon. When I turned on the unit in the dark of night I could discern a spark inside the aircon unit somewhere in the switch control area whenever there is the loud popping sound. Here is the culprit - shorted control cables running form the electronics board to the compressor. In my case these were wires with a sheathing conductor exposed probably gnawed through by rodents during winter when the aircon was off. What happens is whenever there is a signal voltage sent from the control panel to the power relays, the shorted cables spark giving a sharp pop sound.

Re: Loud Popping Sounds

If this is a heat pump system it is possible that your fan blade is hitting ice on your condenser coil.

Heat pump is humming loud>

When the heat is not on. Go to the T-stat and turn the fan to the on position. With the blower now running is it making the noise? If so you probably either have something in there such as the filter that was mentioned, a piece of paper etc. or one or more of the blades on the blower wheel is vibrating. Don't let the condition persist w/o having it checked out or you may turn a simple fix into a costly one.
