Customer Question
This is the second...

This is the second summer I have used my Delonghi

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

Just an hour ago the unit began making a very loud clicking sound when the compressor turns on

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat? And what about the unit's filters?

I don't know how to check the thermostat...but when I took out the filter it was terribly dirty...my bad!!! :-(

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

That would depend on cost

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Just the loud clickety noise...almost sounds like a fan blade is hitting something
