outside A/C unit got loud

I have a rheem air conditioner, model RAMA-036JAZ, mfd. 01/97
Last night the lights went dim for a second when the A/C unit turned on. Went outside to check unit and notices it was louder than it had ever been. Also noticed a slight squeal. Turned unit off. Does anyone know what the problem may be.

Kinda hard to say since it can be a number of things. Do you have an AMP probe to check for amprage?

If not, you may be best to get someone to look at it.
