Took it apart and padded the spaces between the vibrating components casings and the outer cover. This helped muffle the noise but not much. Any other suggestions.

Did you check the window. Does it have sash weights?

Charlie says the fan could be out of balance.

Nope, it's an aluminium window (as Frankie would say).

He said, take the a/c apart, turn the fan by hand, if it wobbles, try to see where the fan blade may be bent and bend it correctly. I think if this is a new a/c, I'd bring it back because the fan damage was caused by something being in the blades way when you turned it on or it may have been dropped. Good luck. m

I sent you an email from my dad, since he can't post. Did you get it?
