Why is My Air Conditioner Making Strange Noises?

What happens when their air conditioner starts making weird noises? That’s not so relaxing. It’s not uncommon for air conditioners to make a variety of strange sounds. What’s important is the type of sound your air conditioner is making since each sound can indicate a different issue.

Strange Noises Coming From The Air Conditioner And What They Mean

High-pitched squealing noises coming from your unit are typically caused by either a slipping belt that connects the motor to the blower or a motor problem with the condenser fan’s bearings.

Since most modern air conditioners don’t have a belt system, if your unit is older, it is probably the issue. If so, both inside and outside of your home will be able to hear the music. If this problem matches what you’re experiencing, a new belt must be installed. If your unit is new, the problem is probably with the motor’s bearings for your condenser fan. Modern units pull air through the condenser coils in your compressor using direct-drive motors without belts.

If this is the case for your AC, you may hear squealing or grinding from your outdoor unit, which indicates that the motor needs to be replaced. With either of these issues, we recommend calling a professional to repair your air conditioner.

Why Your Air Conditioner Is Making A Buzzing Sound

Your air conditioner is probably broken if it makes loud buzzing noises. Usually, the problem is one of four things: either there are loose parts, broken or missing isolation feet, refrigerant leaks, or a defective compressor.

Your air conditioner’s components all work together to keep your house cool in warm weather. Therefore, if one component fails, the others are put under extra stress. Your unit may begin to buzz whenever additional wear places enough strain on those parts, which is a sign that it needs to be repaired.

At the base of the air conditioner, a little pair of rubber feet known as “isolation feet” support the compressor of your unit. After using your AC for some time, those feet may crack or disintegrate, which causes the compressor to lose balance and begin to buzz while running.

In fact, air conditioners can freeze up while cooling your house. Your AC may freeze if refrigerant leaks from the unit, and as a result, the unit may begin to buzz.

Another potential cause of the problem is a malfunctioning compressor, which is responsible for putting pressure on and lowering the temperature of the refrigerant used to chill your home. A buzzing sound could indicate that your compressor is having problems or that your unit’s electrical voltage  isn’t right.
