Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Thumping noise while running

\015 While heating the room, the fan starts good, but, after a few minutes of running, it starts making a loud noise like it is coming loose with a lot of thumping sounds. We turn the unit off as soon as we hear the noise. I am just assuming that there may be loose bolts holding certain part of the unit. Can you help\015

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. He claims that his unit makes the same noise in his house and that I am hearing the normal noise of the outside unit running inside the house. He explained


It may just be a loud condensor, otherwise, it could be a vibration from the unit housing and the noise carries. You could always replace the relay and see if it helps any. Also check unit pressure with pressure guage to make sure it is not over pump ... Air Conditioners

My recently May 3rd, 2010 purchased LG LWHD1009R Air Conditioner runs very well and cools great. Noise is not bad at lowest fan setting which is all I need really. My only complaint is the rattle buzzing type noise coming from the Air Intake or the Inlet Grille in the front of the AC. When you lower it the noise and rattle stop and the AC keeps running great. When I put it back up and connect both sides the rattle returns. I notice that if I put it back up but only connect one of the 2 prongs

I have new Samsung 1.5 Ton Window AC ( around one month old). Whenever AC is switched on in FAN or Cool mode the AC (probably FAn motor) make irritating Humming Noise. The noise slightly reduces after awhile. The noise level reduces when lower Fan speed is selected. This problem was not present in first few days of operation. Whether Compressor is on or off does not make any change in noise level. Noise level is same when AC is run in fan mode as well. We have contacted the manufacturer


It is possible that your AC is not getting the right voltage or frequency and hence is trying to scavenge in gettting the current. It will be good if you can check on the mains voltage or on the wiring for a good 15 amp supply line. If there is any r ... Maytag M6Q10F2A Air Conditioner

A) I am trying to obtain a manual for a model #HWR12XC6-RB air conditioner. Can you send me one via email?

The temperature display seems to decrease while the compressor is running, and rises again when it is not running. The temperature never seems to aproach the set temperature.

Turned on AC was running fine. 30 minutes later began to hear a strange noise. Opened AC/Furnance closet & heard a sound best described as air letting out of a tire. It seemed to be coming from copper pipe. Minute later sound stopped & air was suddenly hot. As if AC was turned on fan not cold. Went outside & neither fan nor motor was running. Turned fan manually. Ran for about a minute then stopped. Outside unit was making what could best be described as a buzzing sound.
