My outside unit is making a loud weird noise but the inside unit is working completley fine it is 7yrs old now

the outside unit is where it all happens. That is where the compressor is and its cooling fan. The inside unit is just an evaporator, a bit like a car radiator and a fan. The inside unit is protected by the room, the outside unit is in the rain, snow and wind.

You need an AC engineer.

Was wondering if anyone would know the age of this snowblower and hp output, its for sale and before I buy I would like more info about it. It says Snow Champ 5/24 power propelled

Looks like the UP605/8461 was made for Aircap by MTD for just 1 year (1989)... the equivalent MTD model number was: 319-550-002

Here are some links to sources for available parts along with obsolete replacement/aftermarket recommendations:

MTD UP605 8461 319 550 002 Snow Champ Self Propelled Snow Thrower 1989...

The parts that go bad the most often are the wear skids on the outside of the auger housing, and the shave plate along the bottom edge of the auger housing.

Carburetors tend to gel up from the 15% ethanol the farm lobby got congress to put in all our gasoline, but that's not really 'going bad' - often you can actually clean the 'varnish' out of the orifices and passages with aerosol carb cleaner... shops would have a heated (about 105F) ultrasonic parts cleaner, but it's usually cheaper for DIY'ers to buy a new carb.

24 in aries snow blower throws snow for maybe 2 ft any ideas

Since your snowblower is a two stage all metal unit the only thing keeping the snow from shooting out is either a worn out drive belt or a weak engine. The belt is the easy thing to change. Buy a new drive belt too since it is a good time to change both at the same time. The unit actually breaks into two parts at the back of the auger housing to expose the belts for changing. A local shop can do this service for 100-$200 bucks along with an oil change and chassis lube. Not too bad since this will keep your unit running reliably for years to come.

Fan not worhing when heater is on

You can cover the system as long as the vent is clear if this is a gas package unit & not a heat pump.

I have noticed my heat pump is freezing up on the outside unit, we have had freezing rain and snow the last 2 days but I have never noticed ice accumulation on the outside of the unit, it also seems like...

In freezing weather the heat pump efficiency drops. The freezing is normal. The equipment has a board and sensor to defrost your heat pump. Now this system can fail but freezing rain and snow get pulled into the unit get pulled into the unit coil and freeze blocking airflow. You can defrost the unit by turning it to cooling. This is what the defrost board does automatically.

Had a snow thunder storm last night and now the unit won't work - any ideas - is it fixable?

This will be a temporay issue curable once all the snow has melted away from the transmitters and/or any damage caused by the storm is repaird.
Unless you had the unit outside IN the snow storm there would be no reason for it to be physically broken itself..

Heat pump outside unit not running

It sounds like your defrost board failed. You will need a tech to replace it. With that model it may have a parts warranty but you pay labor(?)

Out side temperature reading

Without having parts to try, this would be difficult to know what the fault is. Inside this unit there is a circuit board, and on the outside there is the exernal temperature sensor.

There are only a few things that can go wrong. There is not much that is servicable unless you can find a spare board, or a spare temperture probe. There is very little posiblity that in any practicality this unit can be serviced at the component level.

I would just go out and buy a new unit.
