Post Any AC technicians on here?

Since a few minutes, my portable indoor AC has been making these weird noises:
<a href="http://jetpaper.com/acnoise.wav" target="_blank">http ://jetpaper.com/acnoise.wav</A>

In the past few days, the power has been going off for fractions of seconds occasionaly, it made the AC make a weord nosie during the fration of a second, but it was running fine for 2-3 days after that until now. It is making those noises and the lights in my room dim along with the noises so I turned it off (luckily it's not too hot outside tonight).

Anyway, I bought it at costco and I'm afraid I don't get a the manufacturer's waranty because they aren't an authorized reseller, did I dream this? I hope so.

Also, will a cheap UPS prevent future malfunctions like this or does it need one of those expensive UPS's that make a perfect sinewave?

Thanks

I don't know if having a UPS on it will help but I highly suggest having any electronics on the same circuit that could be damaged by the power fluctuations on a UPS as long as you have that piece of shit running. We have a piece of shit Ac on the same circuit as our comp and the fucker burned out our UPS in like a month, would've been real shitty if we didn't have it. As is the power supply on our comp exploded a couple months ago, made a loud pop n filled the room with smoke. Probably had more to do with me hitting it till the fan stopped working than anything else though.

It was a wire to the compressor that had melted and was making sparks inside, the weird thing is, when he came and asked what the problem was, I said it made noises like if there were sparks inside, I was right on!
