Question about Whirlpool Heating & Cooling
SOURCE: outside makes loud noise
I would take a very close look at every solder joint there is between the inside unit and the outside. If you observe oil at any point it indicates a leak at that point. That is an expensive price for what you say was done. Check your invoice for the amount of refrigerant they or he added to the system. Compare it with the amount stated on the outside unit nameplate. Check for frost on the suction (big line) by the outside unit. If there is frost your coil is frozen up. If this is the case turn the fan on and the cooling off. Allow it to run in this manor for about an hour to defrost the A coil. Then return to the cooling mode.

Check for blockage of the air pathway. Check that the fan turns freely, as the bearings or bushings could be shot. The fan blades could also be loose. You might just want to replace the fan, as it is cheaper than replacing bushing/bearings.

The capacitor is located inside the control panel on the outside unit. It is round or oval and silver in color.It runs the outdoor fan and the compressor both.
The terminals are marked= C, /F or fan/, H or herm. C-F-H.
The microfarad rating is printed on the capacitor. Make a color code wire diagram before removeing wires.
Disconnect power to the unit. Use a insulated screwdriver to short out the terminals on the capacitor before removing it.
