Expert:  Tamar D replied 20 days ago.

That's good. Where does the noise seem to come from? what part of the unit?

Expert:  Tamar D replied 20 days ago.

where does the shaking seem to originate, near the bottom? a problem like this is normally going to be the compressor or a fan motor

Thank you again for visiting JustAnswer, based on the information you have provided I would like to give you a general answer to your question.
If this does not solve your problem or you need additional follow-ups please respond here with the information I requested and we can troubleshoot your problem further.

Shaking is generally due to the compressor or a fan motor going out.
Need more info though.
