IS, UNIT NEAR WINDOW I ALWAYS POSITION THEM AWAY FROM LIVING SPACES. THE PROPER LOCATION IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS INSTALLATION SOME THINGS INSTALLERS DONT PAY MUCH ATTENTION TO WITH TODAYS SCROLL- SCREW COMPRESSORS NOISE CAN BE A PROBLEM A GOOD INSTALLER WOULD TAKE CARE OF THIS AT NO COST TO HOMEOWNER, THE CHEAPEST PRICE ISNT ALWAYS THE BEST CHOICE.

3 ton heat pump with piston in air handler. After unit shuts down it makes loud fluid flow noise for about 2 minutes


adding a tvx will not help. the sound you here is the pressure equalizing and that has got to happen for the compressor to start again the next time. A tvx will give you a higher efficiency because it can adjust to changing temperature conditions. Only way i know to quiet the noise is to try to insulate the lines better.

New Ruud 16 seer central air and heat pump - very noisy


A few things to check
1) Is the unit mounted on metal brackets attatched to
the house, is so I would probably put rubber pads
between the unit and the brackets to absorb the
vibration.

2) Same is tru if sitting on a concrete or plastic pad.
3) Some units come with the compressor that has
an insulated jacket around it, this is also for noise
reduction.

4) The fact that you replaced an older unit with a newer one could also mean that you have a bigger blower.

5) Which leads to the unit not performing because
it may have not been set up properly.

6) Take the door off the unit, make sure power is turned off. Usually on the left hand side of the indoor
unit it will list the temperature rise that this unit
requires. I`m guessing between 25-45 deg.

7) This is the temp. difference you would measure
on the return air near the furnace. Then Take a
temp. measurement in the Supply duct near the
indoor unit.

8) If its not within the range the furnace requires,
he needs to come back and adjust the fan speed

Fan started making noise


I have one of these, and every so often, the fan would start making a loud clicking noise. I discovered that if I shut the fridge off for a while and left the door open to defrost it, it'd work fine again for a while before the noise came back. Apparently, some ice was building up between the metal heat-sink and the fan, causing the fan blades to scrape against the ice/frost build-up and make the "tick, tick tick" noise.
There is no compressor in the Avanti EC15W-2 mini fridge. It uses a simple Peltier junction device to transfer heat from the inside of the fridge to the outside/rear of the unit. So it should never get very loud at all, unless one of the two fans in it is acting up in some way.

Loud noise


It is probably a rotary compressor unit.
They tend to make a start up noise.
Some technicians advocate adding a booster starting device to help the compressor start more quickly, thereby reducing startup noise.

Noisey compressor


Does it make the noise all of the time or just periodically? Does the outdoor fan run when it is making the noise. If the fan isn't running and the compressor is noisy at that time likely it is in defrost mode which is normal.

Goodman Condenser - Heat - Buzzing Noise every 60 seconds


It could be your compressor trying to start but not being able to do so. It shouldnt happen that often but in cold temp the overload protector may cycle that quickly. I reccomemnd to have it checked to salvage the expensive compressor.
