When my A/C or heat turns off, we hear a fairly loud slamming noise in the house. It sounds like a metal flap slamming shut.

AC OUTSIDE COMPRESSORE NOISE NEW

Enough of these fools commenting on the "fan blades hitting .. Or mispositioned" causing this banging noise.. Its caused by the design of the expansion valve... Its terribly loud but this is how TRANE designed it... So stop with the silly comments about the fan hitting something will you!!!

A/C Compressor making load noise before cycles off NEW
by: Ben

I have the same problem with my unit, compressor is making load noise before cycling off. Worst thing is the fan shuts off first before compressor makes load noise then cycles off. I have my clamp meter and check the readings, and wow when it's making that load noise before cycling off it actually draws a lot of current from the normal 9 to 11 amps going up to 21 Amps before cycling off. I was very frustrated changing both compressor and fan motor with no luck, even discharging the gas freon and vacuum the system for 30 minutes. I charge the gas freon in the normal fashion with the gauge reading with clamp meter to monitor the normal operating current, and even i have done the charging of gas freon by weight as per amount of Kl indicated. Still no luck. I decided to change my other unit but, before I remove my outdoor unit, I done one thing that I was not anticipating that could help solve the problem. I clean the fins of the grill thoroughly with a pressure washer, and i have observe that the load noise of compressor before cycling off was already gone. The best part is the fan and compressor now cycles off at time, and cycles on same time also. I have my clamp meter and manifold gauge check during the cycle off period, the clamp meter reading is now normal with the current rating the same as indicated in the sticker of the unit, and also the manifold gauge is only reading until 100-110 psi when compressor is not working, and before the gauge reading goes beyond 150 over the limit of my gauge. I'm staying in Qatar and temperatures here now are reaching almost 50 degrees C.

I am just working on my unit myself and I am not an expert, my A/C installation experience and diagnose I just based it by reading forums, and youtube search.

TRANE SCROLL COMPRESSORS NOT GOOD NEW
by: Anonymous

Thank you for sharing your experience.

My 5 ton TRANE central air conditioning system is demonstrating the same loud banging noise when it shuts off.

What is strange about my situation is that when I turn the system on, it goes thru its normal cycles for the first hour or two without making noise when it shuts off; then,as the day progresses, towards the evening,the noise starts coming on and it gets very loud. It sounds like metal banging against the inside wall of the compressor housing.

I have called "so called TRANE experts", I have heard all kind of excuses and stories but unfortunately none of it gets my problem resolved

The cause of ac slamming noise NEW
by: Anonymous

The slamming noise you hear when your ac shuts off is caused by the condensing fan blade banging into the fan blade housing. The fan blade is out of adjustment on the motor shaft usually caused by loose tightening bolt/screw or the fan blade is out of balance due to constant centrifugal force an additional cause is that the fan motor mount screws are not equally tightened or there is a slight bend/warp to the air grille fan motor mount. The reason the fan blade doesn't scrape against the housing while running is due to the slight lifting of the blade in the housing when the fan motor is energized and the helicopter effect of the spinning blade. The instant kick of electricity to the fan motor when starting causes the armature (shaft) to jump when the electricity flows through the stators. This instant jump raises the fan blade up and clears the housing at the spot where it is scraping. The springy action of the air grille fan motor mount contributes to this lifting effect. The actual spot where the fan blade is "slamming" into the housing is in between the high point when running and the low point when the fan is at rest that is why the fan blade appears to move freely within the housing when the motor is off and no scraping or rubbing is noticed upon inspection of the fan blade. If the outside edge of the fan blade is rounded,it creates an arc on the end of the blade and the "slamming" takes place when the center point of this arc bangs into the fan housing on shut down where the fan blade suddenly drops down because electricity is no longer energizing the motor. When the fan is running the center point of the arc is above the contact point on the housing.
To fix the problem, check the fan blade on the motor shaft to see if it is loose and adjust it up or down on the shaft so that the center point of the arc on the end of the blade is above or below the contact point on the fan housing. Check fan blades for damage and balance, and inspect the air grille motor mount for bends or warps causing the fan motor to be out of level which causes the fan blade to be cocked in the fan housing.
Any way you look at it, the slamming noise is caused by the condensing fan blade slamming into the fan housing on shut down.

Solution Worked for banging noise!! NEW
by: Tony

There was a metallic bang every time my heat turned on and off. It was hard to believe that my thin light weight air filters could make that much noise. They are in the ceiling and I could see right through the metal grate and watch the filters lift and fall on the grate as the blower turned on and off. I used tape to hold the filters in place after cleaning the surface that the tape adheres to.
PROBLEM SOLVED!

I have a 1 year old 3.5 ton unit that makes a loud bang when cycling off. The fan blade and shaft was changed in November and seemed to fix the problem foe about 2 months. Same problem again HVAC guys now telling me this is typical of these big units. Anyone else have this issue? Trying to figure out how far to take this. The unit works fine heats and conditions great just this loud bang is annoying.

May be simple fix NEW

I had the same problem and could have sworn there was a door in the ducts that was slamming shut-- that's what it sounded like. It was actually the filter in the intake vent. When the unit would turn on it would slam against the top and when it turned off it was drop back down. I added some duct tape to keep the filter from moving and it solved the problem.

Heat thumpers at the end of cycle NEW
by: David

This was in fact.. The problem!! The bottom of the " Air Handler" is NOT reinforced like the sides. And was in fact on wooden blocks to allow for condensate pan and the air handler to have a "Dry Zone" or gap so condensate can collect. I personally found a small roll of tape then slide it between pan and air handler. It need s to be slightly larger than the gap to provide a " preload " or pressure on the bottom panel.

solved but not ductwork NEW
by: Anonymous

My problem was the bottom pan on the inside of the furnace. It is only fastened with front clips so when the fan turned on the back of the bottom pan would lift up and bang down after it shuts off. If your furnace is up on blocks, reach under your furnace and see if you can lift the pan. Turn the furnace on and see if it is lifted when it runs. Not sure if this is by design but it also sucks in all kinds of dust an garbage from the floor defeating the purpose of the air filter.

I believe the noise being experienced is known as "Water Hammer" as experienced in steam pipes. I believe this happens when the expansion valve closes when the compressor is stopped. It would resonate in the Freon lines.

Slamming Noise Solved NEW
by: Hoover

I too had the "slamming/banging" noise issue with both of my Carrier 24ABA336A310 units when the compressor motor stops. I replaced both motors and both start capacitors and still experienced the same problem. On a whim, I decided to order two new fan blade assemblies...even though I did not have any faith that this would fix the issue. However; upon replacing the fan blades, the slamming noise disappeared. I inspected the old blades and determined that where the motor shaft attaches, the old design had a flaw that allowed the "hub" to move ever so slightly, which produces the slamming noise when it stops spinning since it is amplified through the blades. The new fan assembly does not have the same design so it appears as though Carrier identified the problem.

Lennox non existing tech support NEW
by: Tony

First--big THANKS to ANTHONY for at least pinpointing the possible cause of the banging that my 4 year old XC13 developed this summer. Yes, it is of the type that is:
a scroll compressor using r-410a refrigerant (high pressure refrigerant).
Calling that 1-800-9-lennox number (PAM/MARK) is like calling the ACA line for help. Nothing but denial about the ‘noise’ fact but that ‘THEY HAVE’ build 100's of thousands of these SCROLL compressors and have great success with these in the industry.
Neither would touch the NOISE ISSUE at all but did bad mouth all of the INTERNET sites that post the helpful info. YEP-that damn river with the lousy name.
I had called one of the $70 for a house visit service call outfits, but cancelled it when a cold spell hit here in Kansas and the banging stopped. I did not want the service guy to think that I had extra money to throw away. Retired and on fixed income makes you do that sort of thing each time.
Finding the informative explanation by Anthony makes me think that I just may wait and possibly call for service if the (very loud) banging resumes once the 90+ days return..
OR-call Lennox and demand a new-QUIET- one.
Vengeance is sweet--NO?
Again thanks for the post, Anthony!

knocking sound 3 min. after shutdown. NEW
by: Wishin I had a Trane

I have a 2006 Rheem 3 ton split heat pump. Last fall I started to notice a Knocking sound occasionally after shut down. Now in cooling it happens after every cycle. I tryed just the blower and it doesn't happen. It's coming from the condensor and traveling on the lineset. Here's what I found so far: the unit cycles off, the indoor fan runs and additional 90 seconds, then within 60 seconds I hear a fast knocking sound that slowly deminishes in speed and volume.The duration is about 10 - 15 seconds. I haven't checked r22 pressures. superheat or subcool yet.
It is a scroll but, I'm thinking check valve in outdoor txv. Anyone ever heard of these symptoms?

Both noises
by: Anthony in VA

Hey fellas,

This is in response to both noises (loud shut down & blower noise like hitting the wall). Seems like all these problems are with fairly new to not that old equipment. Chances are they are all scroll compressors using r-410a refrigerant(high pressure refrigerant).

It is known in the industry that on shut sown sometimes scroll compressors are noisy due to pressure equalization(this would make the knocking rattle sound). Sometimes it will make the metal noise which may be noise coming from the compressor plates (found in scroll compressors.

This noise is not supposed to happen, but it does with the occasional system. Other factors may be involved. Maybe it was a system replacement and they re-used the old line-set which was not exactly the right size, or too long. I have some units running perfectly for years with the noise.

The air handler noise bang on the wall on start up. Is this a variable speed fan coil? If yes, thats probably what you hear. On start up those motors start by rotating back and forth to find the right frequency before they ramp up speed.

If you hear that excessively the DC hub may be starting to go bad. If it is not variable speed and a psc motor, you may want to check to see if the blower wheel (squirrel cage) is in good shape. good luck!

air blower hitting sound
by: Anonymous

Our heating unit is about 6 yrs old. Whenever it starts to work, the motor seems starting nicely, however, I would hear the air blower has this delayed response, then feels like something hitting the wall, for about 40 times. The hitting sound will go away after that. It seems worse when it starts from real cold temp and the hitting times shorten when temp is closer. Does anyone know why this is happening?

Slamming noise with subsequent rattle
by: Anonymous

We have the same "slamming" shut off noise problem followed by a rattle on one of the two Carrier model 24ACA air conditioning units that we installed in 2007 to cool our three story townhouse in Houston, TX.

I don't remember them making that much noise at first. They cool nicely but it has become difficult to work in the room located closest to the central air units because of the jarring noise.

We have had them serviced several times without much improvement and have replaced the compressor on one unit with no significant change. Is it also probable that the vibrations from the "slamming" is causing the central ac unit to rattle more as the problem continues?

Indoor Fan Abrupt Sound
by: Dadan

I'm not 100 percent sure where the abrupt sound came from. It could be within the motor or a sound that is surrounding the motor. The sound could be cause by the motor force air.

You could check you duct system or even you filter. You could also make sure nothing is blocking the air flow.

You could also look at the indoor unit and ask someone to turn ON and OFF the indoor fan (without touching the indoor unit).

I hope the info help

Compressor sound
by: Dadan

I understand once the central ac shut down, the compressor tries to equalize the pressure between the low and high side. In Heat Pump, it sounds somewhat like "Hissss" as it tries to equalize.

I'm guessing from your information. As the compressor shut down, the compressor piston in motion stops abruptly due to high pressure within the copper line.

The refrigerant pressure is great than the in motion piston to rotates. So, as the power cut from the compressor. It take within or less than a second to stop, due to the high pressure. Shawn, does this happen regularly, or it happen at specific outdoor temperature? As it stops abruptly, does it shake the condenser unit? I’m trying to see the big picture.

If my information is correct, there is reason why your central ac unit has higher pressure than normal. There could be airflow restriction across the evaporator coil (dirty filter), condenser coil needs to be clean or I’m just bark at the wrong tree.

I’m not sure what to tell you guys. I will pay close attention to different types of compressor sound next time.

Same here
by: Different Shawn

I have two four year old four ton units. Both central ac units seem to run fine and cool very well. When new they shut down/turned off without any unusual noise. Now they both have a clunking sound or as Ryan said a seizing sound.

To me it seems as if the compressors shuts down abruptly/instantly when power is cut instead of may be one or two more revolutions of the compressor as it slows to a stop.

Slamming Sound
by: Shawn

Hey, Ryan.

If a compressor made a metallic noise, I doubt it would cool your house. Is this a Heat Pump unit or just regular central ac unit?

You could look around your compressor and checks for copper to metal object contact. If a vibration producing this metallic noise, you should hear when the compressor start.

I'm not sure if a spring form the bottom of the compressor with vibration is producing this sound.

I have same problem
by: Ryan

Our outdoor a/c compressor unit runs fine.... same as always... cooling is excellent, but from the first day of use this year it makes a loud, short, sharp, metallic noise right as it shuts off.

It's not exactly like metal slamming something, but more like a seizing sound.

At first I thought it was the fan motor seizing on shutoff and the metallic noise was vibration from the fan blades coming to a sudden stop.

But upon inspection the fan keeps spinning freely as it should and the noise is definitely coming from the compressor.


Thanks!
