It sounds like the unit is failing to refrigerate, the cracking noise is most likely a compressor fault (trying to run) it may be stalled or have suffered a motor failure. The noise may also be an electrical short but unlikely as this would trip the safety trips in the house.
If you still have warranty i would return it or demand a HVAC engineer to inspect and repair faults.

all the best

Air is not cold, and a wierd cracking noise


You are required to get the AC serviced which you can do it yourself except the checking of cooling gas. Unplug the power cord. Remove the AC from the frame. Take it near to a water point where it can be washed. Remove the front filter and clean it with a mild soap solution. Next take a water pipe and spray water jet in the air vents/fins. Let it dry. For cracking noise connect the power cord and run the AC locate the noise. If it is any loose part fix it or provide necessary packing to avoid vibration noise. When you are running the AC check if there is moisture condensation on the cooling pipes. If it is there then the gas is OK otherwise you have to top up the cooling gas. If the sound is coming from the compressor then you have to change the compressor. Re assemble if you are satisfied that the gas and compressor defects are not there.

My air conditioner is on but not blowing cold air and buzzes


The compressor is not starting. The buzzing noise you hear is the compressor trying to start and then the thermal overload trips. When it cools it will try to start again. Could be a bad capacitor or the compressor is bad. These two units need to be tested to see which one is bad. A capacitor is inexpensive. If it's the compressor it will be cheaper to buy a new AC.

I have a sunbeam 12000 btu window unit air conditioner. I can't seem to change the fan speed when it is in cool mode. When I put it on fan only it blows extremely cold air and i can change the fan speed. ...


Sounds like the switch is wired wrong.
When you put the switch on fan only the compressor should not run at all, therefore their shouldn't be any cold air.
Check the switch to see if it's wired right.

Blows warm air


you need to disassemble the rear fan shroud and clean the back of the condensor. If the compressor runs and the lines are cold, it is dirty. The rear condensor is the one discharging the hot air. Both sides must be clean and free of dirt/grime
