Sounds like your compressor seized up. Very likely to cost more to replace the compressor than to buy a new A/C>

Auto a/c compressor will not stay on


Could be a restriction in the system, or a problem with the clutch. Is there a chance the system is overcharged ?

My '95 Riviera S/C A/C is not working. Compressor kicks in, but I hear a groaning sound coming from behind the radio, and the A/C blower does not work.


The groaning soundis from the blower so a replacement is necessary first of all. Then it may operate smoothly

My Whirlpool refrigerator makes a loud groaning cough noise when it turns off. Is it near the end?


the compressor is pushing a lot of pressure. when it shuts off sometimes the pressure forces the compressor to roll backwards and make a pressure release noise. I've known some to do that for years.

Groaning noise on GE side by side refrigerator


Usually the groaning noise is from a locked up icemaker. Remove the icemaker and defrost it with hot water. Check to make sure the unit is in good shape and not chipping. Let it dry out and then reinstall.

Fridge now groaning


My noise was the ice maker wire bail arm that turns on the ice maker.

I have no water line to the fridge, so the ice maker is not in use. The wife bumped the arm down that turns on the ice maker. I pushed it back up, turning it off and the intemittant groaning / buzzing stopped.

Too bad I replaced the perfectly good condenser capacitor first!

Groaning frig


BFULLAWAY had the answer, I believe. My ice maker does the same thing, groaning and creaking for a few seconds, stopping briefly, then starts creaking again. This is due to ice stuck inside and it will make no ice as a result. Usually I see a piece of ice protruding and knock it out. Happened recently, but I saw no ice. Took a cup of hot tap water (not boiling) and poured it into the compartments where cubes form. (Made sure ice tray was in place to catch water.) I banged on the side and a misshapened cube fell out. Creaking/groaning stopped and unit began to function normally.
