The fan on my air conditioner sounds like something is impacting the blades. How do I find out where the fan is to look at it myself?

    It seems to have resolved itself, which leads me to believe that it wasn't a mechanical problem, but something that got into the unit during a strong storm last night.

Switch off power. Pull the chassis carefully 50 to 60%. You will find a motor centrally placed. Rotate by hand and align it suitably.

Check the shaft grub screw for full tight.

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..

Where the unit drains is clogged it sounds like so your fan blade is hitting the water and scooping some of that water indoor. look where the condensate drains and clean that and it should be fine

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..

If it was running fine before and you moved it and it's making noise, it sounds like something fell against the fan blades. The reason it sounds worse when you turn it up is that the fan is running fast. Grab a flashlight and check to see what might have fallen.

Makes loud noise while cooling. sounds like fan is hitting something. a/c is 4 years old, in the wall, problem just began July 2009. Lowering fan speed, or energy saver setting do not help.


That's because it probably is.Shut it off.Pull it out.Set it on a table by the outlet or a/c housing.Plug it into the same outlet.Keep fingers away from the blade and visually watch it.

My guess is the fan blade loosened on the shaft and needs to readjusted and tightened.Or the wires need to be moved out of the way of the blade and tie down(not on the fan blade either foo!!!).

Lg 18000 remote with heater


your fan blade hit something and i think one of the blade got damaged and somehow it is no longer balance and makes a lot of vibrations.

have you read in the instruction manual to remove some kind of a shipping support before running the unit?

im just curious what hit your blade. it could be the shipping support for the compressor.

tnx 4 using fixya,
