The simplest way of explaining this is as per the following. On your outdoor compressor unit there should be two pipes, one smaller diameter [high pressure] and a larger diameter pipe [low pressure]. Turn your A/C on inside the house and then shut off the smaller diameter pipe. Run the unit for a around 3 to 4 minutes and then check if the cooling is reducing from the unit inside the house. When you feel room temperature air [not cool] being emitted from the indoor unit shut off the larger diameter pipe and turn off unit. Isolate electrics, disconnect A/C piping and immediately seal the piping with good quality tape to prevent egress of dirt. When re-installing a quick purge of gas is usually only required to clear the lines if they were sealed properly and kept clean. Ideally running a vacuum pump is recommended but if care was taken then it may not be needed, as in many of my installations.

SOURCE: Hi I have an Arrow Wood
hello peter, 18 years is quite a long time to use a heater. These units are repairable although as you said the 18 years of use has ensured that no information about this unit is readily available as it has been discontinued and replaced for well over a decade. usually any HVAC tech should be able to get replacement fans or motor for the unit. Although i doubt if the fan or motor is bad the noise might just be due to some interference in the unit.
Although i would also advice that if you can afford it just get a replacement unit as the unit is already considerably old and is prone to failure in the near future.
Hope this support has been helpful?
Thank you for visiting FixYa.
