Can be a faulty motor start capacitor. Usually they will bulge if faulty.It is cheaper to replace that first, then if still the same fault look at replacing the motor

Whynter Portable Air Conditioner Model: ARC-14S. Problem: It sounded as if something fell inside the unit while it was operating (cooling) then it started to vibrate horribly. The vibration is only...


Hi,Whynter Portable Air Conditioner has many moving parts, and they all make noise and cause vibrations. Some of these parts are more likely to causing shaking and loud noises, and sometimes this signals a larger problem, something to watch and scrutinize. If serious enough, it calls for a repair.

Loose Parts

Loose parts cause the majority of shaking and vibration noises in your air conditioner. A few of the most common loose parts include the air compressor, the piston rods and even the fan or blower unit itself. These noises are clunking, clanking sounds that occur along with a vibrating action. The only method of repair is a complete compressor replacement, which is a repair only a certified air conditioner technician is qualified to make. The compressor is a fully sealed component, so individual parts in the compressor cannot be repaired.

Fan Blades

Fan blades cause noise, shaking and vibrations even when properly secured. If fan blades contact the exterior structure of the air conditioner due to a bent fan blade or broken and misaligned grate, a constant, repetitive noise and vibration results, which sounds like a ticking or banging from the interior of the air conditioner. Vibration in this case is limited but still present.

Mounting Brackets

When an air conditioner shakes, there is a problem with the mounting brackets. These brackets hold the air conditioner compressor steady as it operates. Normal vibrations and shaking would otherwise occur without these brackets. A loose mounting bracket causes the air conditioner to rock back and forth and creates a clanking sound. As the compressor starts up, this rocking and clanking sound begins, resulting in a very loud and fast vibration and noise. It also occurs when the unit shuts down.

Other Sounds and Vibrations

Sometimes air conditioners squeal, hiss, hum or screech. Each noise is often accompanied by a vibration. Humming sounds along with a vibration may indicate a bad capacitor, the electrical part responsible for starting the machine. Hissing sounds tend to indicate a pressure problem while screeching and squealing sounds are fairly common in window air conditioners and in central air conditioners. This sound is also a result of the compressor motor. It usually starts when the unit turns on and continues through its normal operating cycle. Vibrations always occur in the air conditioner due to moving parts and the compressor motor's operation.


Hope it helped..

My air conditioner tries to turn on, air comes out of vents but isn't cold, and outside the blades on the AC unit are not spinning. I hear a noise when it tries to turn on but they don't start...


Outdoor condensing fan motor has stopped running. This problem could be caused by a bad motor run capacitor. If your motor capacitor is not the problem, then more than likely you need a new motor. Is the fan blade tight, stiff or hard to turn? If the fan blade is hard to turn then you probably need a new motor

Fan rubs against light after banging into blades while turning over mattress. Is there a way to straighten out center hub?


remove fan blade and bracket from unit. remove blade from bracket. put the down side of bracket on a very solid surface and apply downward preasure. Now go easy, its a soft metal, and might be cast, but this should work for you.

Is the indoor fan working? The problem with the outdoor fan sounds like it could be your capacitor. Turn off the power to the outdoor unit and make sure the fan turns freely using a screwdriver or something that will reach the blades. If it turns freely then it is probably the capacitor. Let me know what you find.

My air conditioner unit outside is making a very loud banging noise. It sounds almost like a small jack hammer. i noticed it this mornin and immediately turned off my system. Any ideas?


Hi!!

Have you taken a look at it???? It sounds to me like the condenser fan blades are bent or something fell in thru the grill that the blades are hitting on. If this is the case, TURN OFF POWER TO UNIT AT BREAKER BOX , remove the screws around the grill or cover
to get to the blades and fix the problem..

Don't forget to rate this post!! Good Luck!!

On tempstar heatpump the outside fan makes a loud noise


Well, that could mean a lage list of problems from which to choose, 1st I suggest you isolate the fan to be sure it is the problem; Hopefully you have an outside disconnect box for the unit, stop the power at this discoonnect and wait 3 minutes. Place a large stick or metal bar throught the topgrill to hold back the fan blade from turning. Now connect the energy at the disco box ( you may want a second person so you can hold the stick in place). You will not harm anything by holding the fan from turning for a short time. If you hear the noise that you suspect after the unit runs for 20 seconds, then the problem is most likely the compressor. If you do not hear the noise, then remove the stick and aloow the fan to turn. You at this point should be able to see if the blade is clangging, or the blade is imbalanced and vibrating, or the noise is coming from the fan motor itself. The most likely problem is the bearings of the fan motor are worn and the motor is screaching or laboring; in which case you need a new motor unless you are savy enough to replace the bearings in the motor (however, this is not always cost effective unless you really know your stuff). Check the blade for fatigue fractures in the metal and check the mounting points that hold the motor in place-----sometimes these mounting points also fatigue after years of vibrating and need to be reinforced with oversize washers or the entire top grill piece needs to be replaced if the cracks are too severe. Goodluck, Macgivor

Blower motor wont start


Every air conditioner is equipped with at least two motors, the compressor and the fan motor. It is possible for the fan motor to be defective and the compressor to be running. If this is the case the unit will appear to be running and may even sound "normal" but no air is blowing out the front or back of the unit. If, after removing the cover of the unit you discover the fan blade is very stiff and difficult to rotate, the fan motor should be replaced. If the fan blade turns freely the circuit powering the fan motor will require electrical troubleshooting. It may be necessary to have a qualified technician locate the cause of the problem, which may be either a problem with the capacitor, the selector switch or the motor itself.

Air conditioner motor


Your condenser fan costs less an $100 if you install it yourself. First with the system on and calling for cooling take a screw driver and spin the fan blade. If the fan comes on then it has a bad bearing, if it doesn't it's electrical. With power off remove the access panel and inspect the wiring etc.. Possible run capacitor.
