Rheem A/C unit makes a clicking sound when

\015 Rheem A/C unit makes a clicking/hitting sound when running. Sounds like the fan but unit is level. Cooling fine-something wrong with the fan...Unit apporx 8 years old.\015

Answers :

Shut down the unit and turn the power off. Take the cover off of the blower housing and feel around within the squirrel cage. It sounds like something may have been drawn up into the blower. Also it is possible that the blower wheel might have thrown a balance weight and caused the wheel to become unbalanced. It could also be the motor about to go out but since I can't hear it myself, I'm trying to cover all the bases.

I have a 10 SEER heat pump about 16 years old, yesterday I notice that the outside unit was making a loud click noise in the heating mode. It's very close to the defrost electrical curcuit board. The unit still was putting out heat inside but decided to turn off the unit and use the emerg. heating. What could that loud clicking sound be? concern, Gilbert


Depending on make and model sounds like a check valve clicking. It can sound like it is coming from that area. You say your unit is 16 years old. Honeywell did servey on unit 10 years and older and found out they loose 25% effeicency after 10 years. ... Air Conditioners

I have a Carrier HVAC unit model #38TKB62300 and the unit outside stopped working. From the exposed wires outside the unit, I noticed that when I pulled gently on some wires, it make a clicking sound. So I took off the cover and back panel and literally the wire connector, feel out of the box. I have detailed pictures of the wires that are not connected. There is a "Brown" wire and "Red" wire that are not connected, so I touched them together to find the Capacitor moving in and out. However,

Hi there! I have a five-year old GE standalone (not in the window) air conditioner model APE09AJM1. Never had a problem in the past, but now I do. The fan works fine. However, the AC is not working correctly. The fan will run for about 35 seconds, than the unit will buzz and make a clicking sound for 1 second while the fan slows down, and then the cycle repeats. Air is coming out, but it isn't cold. Suggestions?

I have a 2005 Pilgram 27 foot 5th wheel. My Duo Therm AC unit makes a ticking sound from the ac unit itself when it's not running. Shutting off the Duo Therm analog thermostat does not stop the ticking sound coming from the AC unit, nor does cutting the AC breaker (20 amp), nor cutting the ac power to the entire RV. I had to cut disconnect the rv battery AND cut the ac power to the RV before it'd stop ticking. When running however, the ac works beautifully. When it reaches it's intended temp

I have a Sanyo khs1271 that is about three years old. For the last six months it has been making a high pitch chirping sound in both heating and cooling modes. I suspect the problem is the fan on the indoor unit as the chirping only occurs when the fan speed is on high. So far, the only solution to the problem has been to turn it on quiet mode, which reduces the fan speed and thus makes the unit's ability to heat or cool less effective. Does anyone know how to access the fan on the indoor unit

My A/C outside will not run, inside a fan is blowing air (a little cooler than the 82 degrees it is in here, but not cold). Unlike all the other posts I've read, my unit outside is not making any noise. I makes a click when I turn it on at the termostat 1 time and then nothing. All this started yesterday sometime, after the remains of TS Fay left us. Help. I tried the breaker thing and resetting the 240v box thing outside at the unit. Help.

Heat pump is 10 years old. No vibration sound in A/C mode. Loud 60 cps vibration sound in house near compressor when compressor is on. Compressor is not making a lot of noise when I open up the outdoor unit and put my hand on it. All compressor rubber mounts are tight and not broken. Looked for vibrations in copper tubing in the basement from the outdoor wall to the indoor unit. It is vibrating but seems loudest by the compressor. How can I isolate the source of noise?


Hi,\015\012\015\012\015\012Overcharged ? that's a possibility but also the vibration could be originating inside the heat pump - either at the main contactor or at the reversing valve ,or like I mentioned simply vibrating against the wood where ... Air Conditioners

We had a new AC unit & the inside unit replaced last night, it cooled fine over night. This morning it started making a "locust" sound every few seconds from the outside part & a gurgling sound from the inside part. It was 96 degrees today & although it was set for 80 degrees, it hovered at 85-86 all day. It's now cooled down outside to 89. It's still 86 inside. Do you have a suggestion as to what the cause is? Could it be over charged? Under charged?
