Our condenser has been replaced once already because of a horribly loud noise that occasionally happened on start-up...usually at night or early in the morning. The new unit is started doing the same thing. In 8/2011, Rheem indicated that the TXV in the inside blower unit should be replaced to correct the problem. The old one apparently allowed liquid to collect in the condenser unit, causing the "difficult" startup, especially when the unit had been off for several hours. The problem went away for one month (after the TXV replacement), but the problem came back again on 9/15/2011. Very frustrating. Their solution was to completely replace the entire outdoor condenser unit again (including both compressors), and change the diameter of the line set). That didn't solve the problem either. The ultimate solution was to hard-wire both compressor heaters to run 24/7/365, which apparently was the only fix that prevented liquid in the compressors after the unit had been off for awhile. What you see/hear in this video is the second of the three condenser units, which all had the same issue.
