Air Conditioner Repair: How to Eliminate the Buzz Sound
Things you may need:
- Water hose
- Spray nozzle
- New Filters
Step 1- Remove It
The first step to making the air conditioner silent again is removing it from the window, and tightening any screws that may be loose. Remove the cover.
Step 2- Cleaning
Now that the air conditioner unit is removed from the window, clean out the drain tray that has built up inside it. This may be the sole reason for your air conditioner being loud. Let the air conditioner to completely dry.
Step 3- Change the Filters
Even if the dirt was the main reason for the buzzing, it is still a good idea to change the filter if it hasn’t been changed in a while. The air being blown into the house can smell horrible if there is a dirty filter in your air conditioning unit. Make sure that the filter is tightly in place, so it doesn’t rattle. Rattling filters is the second most common reason for noise.
Step 4- Replacing the Cover
Now it is time to replace the cover. Most air conditioning units have covers that just snap on and off. Snap the cover in place, and enjoy your once again silent air conditioner.
