My outside unit is making a loud weird noise but the inside unit is working completley fine it is 7yrs old now


the outside unit is where it all happens. That is where the compressor is and its cooling fan. The inside unit is just an evaporator, a bit like a car radiator and a fan. The inside unit is protected by the room, the outside unit is in the rain, snow and wind.

You need an AC engineer.

Mistsubishi A/C unit is making humming noises whenever it is on the HEAT setting.


Well Deanna, if your Mitsubishi is a 'reverse cycle' unit (heat pump) you have to remember that in the heating mode, the high pressure circuit is transferred to the INDOOR unit. In the cooling mode, the high pressure circuit is diverted to the OUTDOOR unit. With high pressure comes higher refrigerant velocity and a different perceived noise level.

What you are hearing inside in the heating mode, you would normally hear outside in the cooling mode.

Very loud "squealing" noise from fan blower for


Hello, if you cannot turn the fan by hand then the motor is shot. However, when power is applied to the motor and it starts after you give it a push then its the capacitor. Whenever you replace a motor tje capacitor must be replaced aswell because the microfarad rating of tne capacitor may have changed.

My unit outside is working fine but it is making a lot of noise. All my neighbors are telling me that this is not normal. What can I do to reduce the noise. It is spinning fine but it makes loud noise.


Is the condenser coils clean..... If not take a hose and wash the condenser coils But make sure you shut the Main power off to it. Has the unit been charged with Freon lately??? If so they may have gotten it overcharged which will cause High head pressure and make the compressor noisy..... Or is it out of level and not setting on a stable surface. causing a vibration noise. You can put rubber pads under the AC if it is a vibration noise...... Also the Compressor may be going out..... It is hard to tell with out hearing it first hand....Hope this helps If you can't get it to quite down I would setup a Service Call to have them Service the AC and that you are having a loud noise coming from the unit....

Compressor of the Ruud A/C outside unit is making unusal loud continuous noise. I open the case, its not the fan or fan motor, loud noise is coming from the compressor, and it is also heating up a lot....


OK, you will need to replace this compressor. the internal seals have ruptured, causing the loud noises. the heat is from the metal to metal friction. the compressor can be rebuilt but, it will be more costly than just replacing it with a new compressor.

Heat Pump Cycles On and Off and Air Handler Noisy


I am pretty sure you have a low charge and the pressure switch is kicking it off. probably just a pound or two however the accumulater will sometimes hold more.

Fan making loud noise like it needs oiled


Most of the fan motors can be oiled. You will have the slide the ac forward and remove it from the case to access it. You will find yellow pull pins on each end of the motor, a lite drop or two is all that is needed.
