Bad Heat Pump??

Hey everyone,

I have a Ruud heat pump that is only 9mths old that is making some bad noises.

See video here: Especially bad around the 21 sec mark.

It sounds like the compressor is having trouble getting started.

It's been doing this occasionally for the last month.

It services the upstairs while the smaller one services the downstairs.

Any ideas?

While it's under warranty.... call for service ASAP.

It sounds like the compressor is cycling on possibly high heat.
Don't allow it to continue or the compressor can be damaged further.
