A noisy commercial air conditioner is not something that should be ignored. Prompt attention may allow you to correct small issues before they become larger and more expensive ones. It is possible that the fan has become bent or has an obstruction which is causing the noise; loose screws and a motor in need of lubrication may also be the cause. Unfortunately, some loud banging or clanking noises indicate a worn out motor or shot bearings. If this is the case, it may be time to consider upgrading your older unit with a high efficiency modern air conditioner which will save you money on utility expenses.
