Window air conditioner weird noise

Quasar hq2121mh, the window ac makes a weird noise like a car trying start when the compressor is off but fan is on and the lights in the house dim as well.
When the compressor is on there is no problem.
What do you guys think?
Also is there like a rubber plug on this fan to lubricate the motor or is this a sealed unit?
Thank you

Welcome to the forums.

The fan/blower motor looks to be permanently lubricated.

It sounds like the compressor starting capacitor needs to be replaced. It's pictorial # 35 in the link below. The mfg. part number is CWA31410. The part shows as fairly expensive. You can use the part number to locate the best price on that Panasonic part. It may be able to be replaced for less depending on the value printed on the part.
