Friedrich air conditioner buzzing.

I have a Friedrich CP10G10A making strange buzzing when "Cool" mode is on. Fan mode is quiet. Cold air is working. Link below for video of the sound.

Any ideas? Also if it's feasible to fix this issue or just buy a new unit?
Thanks!

Welcome to the forums.

That sounds like the buzz/hum from the compressor. As long as it's not objectionable..... it should work fine.

when i first turn it on the noise is bearable but it gets louder and louder. Its now causing migraine headaches.
If it is the compressor is it cheap to repair?

No.... the compressor is the most expensive part in the unit. Sometimes the rubber feet between the compressor and the frame go bad but that doesn't sound like the problem in your video.

I was reading some reviews on that unit and the consensus is that after several years it get louder.
