I have 3 Fujitsu heat / cooling multi split ductless units connected to one rooftop unit. Only in heating mode and only coming from the same indoor unit is a loud almost screeching/vibration sound. It can happen after the unit is on 30 mins or sometimes not until the next day. Repair techs are stumped as they don't see anything wrong and of course the noise doesn't happen when they are here. The noise is so loud I have to turn the unit off. Does anyone know what this could be?

Hi. Just bought a new in box "LP" LWHD 1200R window air conditioner. When I went to turn it on, I got an awful loud fluttering noise coming from the front of the unit.

The refrigerant line in the wall of my guest bathroom running from the Lennox A/c condensor outside makes a loud buzzing noise when it is running. The supervisor of installation of the original installation company examined the unit thoroughly outside and up in the crawl space where the line runs and says the loud, irritating noise is normal.
