Unusual or odd sounds or noises that are heard when you turn on the air conditioner also points to a problem. Typically, loud noises occur when the compressor fails to work properly or if one or more of the belts that holds the compressor in place is broken, twisted or has slipped off. A broken or slipped belt can stop the flow of air, so it is best to have odd noises checked right away.
