It sounds like the unit is going into a defrost cycle, which is normal for heat pumps and means all is working ok when it gets around 35 or colder they start to do this more often when the red light goes back off , the outdoor fan should come back on. You may also notice steam (may look like smoke) coming from outdoor unit. Is that what happens??

MY outside unit will not kick on now I just had it filled and seem to not want to kick on so I'm thinking it a short or the new t-stat that was just replace over the winter heat side works fine

Turn breaker off. Wire nut the red, green and yellow. Turn breaker on. Check outside. If unit is running either your tstat is not setup properly or it is bad

Has it always made that noise? If so then I would think that after 4 years and no problems that it is nothing to worry about. If it is something new then turn it off and call a service tech to look at it. I am leaning toward the service tech.

Heat pump 5 ton package unit

You have two of your t-stat wires that are shorted out. Disconnect the wires at both the unit and t-stat. Take two wires at a time and ohm them out. If you have continuity those are the shorted wires. Substitute them for two different colored wires if you have two wires that are currently unused. If not you will need to pull new wire. Please answer back to say if this works or not.

Sounds like you have a freon leak or your compressor has stopped working. You will probably need a service tech. If it is out of freon, don't let them just add more freon, make them find and repair the leak first. Good Luck.
