it depends on how loud it really is, because unless it's unusually loud then yes it's normal. All that is, is you compressor cycling on and off to your temperature setting. When the temperature goes above the setting it turns on so it doesn't get too hot. When the temp falls below the compressor will shut off so it don't get too cold

Is it normal for a central air conditioner outside unit to make a continuous buzzing noise?

I don't know but my outside unit has been making a relatively loud continuous buzz when it is running.

My concern is that it could be an indication of a problem that should be tended to before a breakdown or other damage occurs.


What would cause a central air conditioner to make a dripping sound in the inside unit and leak water?

When air is cooled the water in it comes out (like mist forming on the outside of a class filled with cold coke) and this happens in the air conditioner. Normally the dripping water is drained way to the outside (or a drain) by a pipe. If the pipe gets blocked the water will overflow and the conditioner will leak water - get it serviced.

your outside unit is buzzing because the low voltage control signal is activating the switch " the contactor" but your unit for some reason is not starting thus no cool air. either your circuit breaker is tripped or you may have other more serious problems. call a licensed hvac service contractor.
