Question AC Making a loud humming noise when ON

Hey Guys,

new to the forum. Appreciate the feedback.

on Friday my AC kicked on and immediately i could tell it was making a LOUD noise when on. Almost as if something was caught in the fan when spinning.

Did some googling - replaced the capacitor and still no luck - attaching a video for reference.

TIA!

Hard to tell from the video, but to me that just sounds like the noise from the compressor. Is everything working correctly? Is it cooling OK?

Agreed...... that is the sound of the compressor. It does sound a little louder than one normally would be but it's hard to tell from a video. I'm guessing the fan is spinning normally and moving lots of air. Due to the camera shutter speed.... it's hard to tell in a video.

How old is the system ?

Could it be the condensor fan motor?

Only issue is the loud noise when the unit is ON
