Makes loud noise when first turned on

I just bought this AC unit and as soon as I turned it on it makes a loud noise through the fans, it sounds as if the fans are making contact with something. Does anybody have any answers?

It may have been damaged in shipping or from the manufacturer. I would consider exchanging it for a new one.

The air conditioner makes a loud sound when the ac trys to kick in. When i put it under fan it works fine and makes no noise.


Sounds like your compressor is seized/stuck and the unit needs a new compressor. If this is the case it should make a loud buzzing noise for a while and then click when it stops trying.

Fan of VAIO CS-118E makes loud sounds


That is definitely a problem from the fan. What you can do is to call sony and check if they still cover Fan replacement for this specific mode.

Makes a loud noise when it is turned on. Can't open it.


If it is making a loud humming sound it is probably getting weak and will have to be replaced. Is it doing it in all speeds? Motor replacement would probably not be worthwhile unless it is a very expensive unit. I'd opt to replace the unit.

Dvd10 optoma projector makes a loud noise


Hi, I'm not sure if it's the same problem I had..
I had it on picture mute, for maybe 15 mins, which may not have been a good idea. While it was muted, it made a sparking sound, and then a very loud grinding noise. When turned off, the lound noise stops, and the fan continues as usual for about a minute. As soon as it's turned back on, the grinding noise is back. But the logo seemed to display ok.

I took it in for repairs, and they said they needed to replace the color wheel to fix the problem.

AC make loud noise on power off.


Is this a wndow unit or central air system? if this is a window unit , your problem is it only needs cleanning (dirt dbber nest-- trash around the back blades-- or the unt is twisted and rubbing the fan shroud. Last but not least, the slinger ring around the back blades (a ring around the end of the blades thats picks up water in the bottom of the unit and sling it on the coils to help cool the hot gases....Thank-you Thank you Thank you very much!

I makes a very loud noise


Had same problem with Ge AC. Unplug take out of window and remove all cover screws. Pull up on cover and pull cover off ac, Remove front cover as well there are a couple screws in the front. When looking at front of ac, hit the Styrofoam housing towards your left (towards control panel). Spin fan blade to make sure that it is clear. Plug in to double check. I put a couple quarters between the styrofoam and the metal housing, so it would not slide back. Also tape the styrofoam between the seams this helps with better cooling. Use some good tape nothing cheap. I used black duck tape. It took about 20 mins. The hardest part is re installing the AC.

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.
