Frigidaire window air conditioner making buzzing noise

I bought a new Frigidaire air unit in May 2007- a couple months later the compressor stopped working and had it replaced by an authorized repair person- the service was terrible and it took over a month to get fixed- anyway I am stuck with this unit and after a couple weeks it started making a very loud buzzing noise every 20 minutes or so- can hear it a couple houses down from us. The compressor is still under warranty but a service diagnostic call is around $100 which I have to pay cause we have passed the 1 year mark-do not know if its worth it since the unit cost $350 .

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.

Compressor will not stay on no matter the temp. setting. After running a couple of minutes the unit emits a scraping or buzzing noise and compressor goes off.


Sounds like you lost one of your fans if air is circulating in the room its the condenser fan. Thats what blows across the condenser coil to the outside. It may just be a capacitor thats what helps the fan get started but usually if the fan is popping capacitors there is something wrong with the fan but at the same time capacitors do just go bad. hope this helps let me know.

I have a new lg window air conditioner that is buzzing loudly when the compressor turns on. as soon as the compressor shuts off it stops buzzing. the buzzing noise also sounds like a playing card attached...


sounds as though the contactor is not pulling in tightly. but it also spunds as though the fan or fans might be hitting some thing . check them out shut the unit down and spin the fans and see if you hear something. if not then it could well be a contator .. But as I think a bit more could be lose fan, or compressor is not setting on it isloator bushings .

My air conditioner is on but not blowing cold air and buzzes


The compressor is not starting. The buzzing noise you hear is the compressor trying to start and then the thermal overload trips. When it cools it will try to start again. Could be a bad capacitor or the compressor is bad. These two units need to be tested to see which one is bad. A capacitor is inexpensive. If it's the compressor it will be cheaper to buy a new AC.

Constant noise when compressor running


most likely there is something touching the body so try to lift the back side and if noise goes away put a block of wood under the unit
