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..

GE top freezer refrigerator: motor has become very loud and refrigerator vibrates. However, when I move the cold control to a lower number, it gets slightly quieter and vibrates slightly less.


Hi,

Please make sure it is level, the compressor is designed to run on level ground. Also check the fans. if the fan is bad or the bearings are shot, it'll vibrate and make a loud humming noise.

Find out where the noise is loudest. if it's under the fridge, it's the compressor.You have to check the coil for the compressor and if it's inside the freezer, it's the fan bearing.

Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance

Optoma ep716 continuous loud vibration noise when turned on.


the fan motor could be failing. turn it on with the top off. if one of the fans is moving slower, that'd be the one. since this is a dlp projector, the colorwheel motor berings might be on their way out as well. both need replacement.

Motor noise coming from hp designjet 120 nr


The fan is probably filled with dust. This can throw the balance off and make vibrations or cause resistance which can make a humm, not necessarily a bearing, not sure if the fan even has bearings. Anyway, the intermittent noise can be that the fans only run when the printer is hot. Find where the noise is coming from clean off the blades and components with a damp rag, blow around or lubricate the center of the fan, and replace it in the printer. Should fix it.

When car is running and fan comes on


Sonds like the fan to me. Yes, those are available separately. Water pump is internal inside of the timing cover and those are pretty bullet proof. Fan is most likely NG. Not that common. I have replaced only 1 in 12 years with Nissan.

Haier ESA 3185 AC won't cool; makes escalating loud vibrating noise near front panel/ filter


Have someone check the run capacitor of this unit. If the run capacitor is bad over shorted it can cause the unit to run and short cycle on a current overdraw. This makes for an electrical imbalance in the compressor motor. Next step is the compressor is faulty.
