Condenser fan brake noise

I have a Rheem central AC unit. I believe it is 3 or 3 1/2 ton. 2years old.

When the condenser fan shuts off there is a loud "bang" type noise. It sounds like the noise a washing machine makes when the spin cycle shuts down.

The fellow who installed it says it is normal since the fan is spinning so fast before it stops.

That's probably the compressor shut down your hearing. If there's a warranty still active on the system, I'd get a tech out to take a look at it. Loud noises like that just aren't normal.

You must have a GE washer?
