    I had a similar problem if the unit has a GE ECM motor it could be bad bearing in motor. If it is an ecm motor you can fine tune the airflow without no problems but he will have to adjust charge.

    Look we know you spent you hard earned money to get this done and we are not making light of that, most of us here are just working folks so we do understand, so please don't take our sort of humor to serious, we sincerely feel sorry for you that this has happened and the person that installed this should come back and correct some of this mess.
    Peace
    Mr. Bill

    I just may give you a call, Twilli! You sort of remind me of the William Shatner character on Boston Legal! :-)

    Awww, thanks Mr. Bill. I know it's all in good fun and I quit crying over it about an hour ago.

    Of course, I'll start crying again when I wake up in the morning and the guy comes out and says he doesn't see a problem with the install! Ack!

    Don't know the difference. Does anyone know what kind of motor my unit has and if this would apply?

    Back to the problem raised in the OP..."droning" noise. I've heard certain air handler blower wheels magnify the running bearing noise of the motor attached to the wheel. Nothing wrong with the motor, either. The metal "drum" that attaches the blower wheel cage to the motor hub can act as a resonance chamber, causing a "revolving droning" sound, especially noticeable if the house has metal ductwork. My father-in-law's AR61 Goodman air handler does this. When he bought the house it had all metal ducts in it. The noise about drove us mad. I replaced sections of metal with flex to attenuate the noise. It's now MUCH better. You can still hear the "revolving drone" by the air handler, but not throughout the house.

    Hmmmmm...that's interesting. Is there anyway to insulate the ductwork to produce the same result? I would be concerned about (a) cost and (b) durability of the flex.

Heres what you do go outside and "hopefully" you have a disconnect on your outside condenser well flip that sucker off, if no disconnect well kill the breaker to the outside unit and then go back in and turn on the unit inside to the fan on position on the thermostat and see if you still hear the noise.
    As I stated earlier doing this would rule out one or the other.

    Yup, you did! And I didn't! (check it out). I was too afraid to foul around with the switches. Will have to ask my husband to do it when daylight breaks. Sorry for not following through on that immediately...it would certainly have eliminated one possibility.

    worry you do have good equipment and mrbill is right we do care
    it also realy pisses some of us off bigtime wen someone does work like that

    makes us all look bad imo

    tat issues you have are mostly minor with the exception of the wire for the condensate pump that is a real biggy imo


    say minor doesnt mean i am down playing any of them it means the unit will run but down the road these issues will cause problems you shouldnt be having.

    the guy if he is ligit will step up and fix the issues

    the instalation book that came with both pieces of equipment will explain in detail and also give ilastations of every thing we are saying

    it also will give you the size you need for the refrigerant lines

    he can not argue with that

    Okay, big surprise....

    I just went down to see if the books were in the pouch on the unit....but it is empty! No manuals!

    Oh my goodness, I am so in trouble.
