Question about Heating & Cooling
The pump is probably gone. the way it works is a float allows the water level to stay the same in the reservoir so check that. Water is pumped up to the hoghair and trickles down into it. A big old blower pulls the wet outside air into the room. We call that one a swamp cooler down here on the gulf. Go outside and spray some water on the unit to cool down the house till you can get the pump replaced.

Careful: Some AC's are not designed to be oiled again once it leaves the manufacturer (while others do as) as to speaking of motors of ACs.
If your AC is making that kind of noise-racket, your AC is experiencing a loose part that needs to be re-tightened.
If it's specifically making a "rattling sound," like it says in this diagnostic article of a handyman site says, then it is likely that your AC fan is loose:
In either instance, your best bet is to contact an experienced AC technician/contractor, as the making of noise is a sign of a serious problem that must be fixed right away, unless you would like to experience almost certain irreparable damage to your AC in my opinion--when sounds are made that's because two or more parts are coming into conflict with each other, causing friction, and thus damage, to occur.
Get free estimates from local AC/HVAC contractors in your area who would be in the position to fix it for you (or whom you can rely on to get as much infromation as possible during the free-estimate consultation so as to apply the information for your own use). The rule of thumb is to get at least three estimates. Good luck!

Could be the fan blade is the issue for vibration. Perhaps the blade was bent or somewhat damaged during failures or during the fan motor replacement process.
Might try replacing the blade. Be sure to install the correct blade. Pitch, number of blades as was on the original unit. If blade was replaced previously, the new blade may be pitched or sized incorrectly.

I am assuming you are talking about the fan motor. The motor should be ok, a torque "spasm" can be expected when it starts unless it has a drive to bring the motor up slowly. You didn't say that there is one, so I assume again that there isn't. Though it is variable speed; even if you start it on low the fan will have its largest load, you can check the alignment of the belt if there is one to the fan. If its a direct drive you can check the alignment of the shaft to the blade. I personally would pick up some brackets, or uni-strut and reinforce the mounting plate to put less strain on the motors standard brackets. I believe that would put my mind at ease. Hope this helps. Let me know if you need further assistance.Thanks.
