Nothing worse than a bad airconditioner!
You do have rights to quiet enjoyment.
I would first contact the property manager. It is their job to deal with this.
Good luck and stay cool! :-)

You need to raise this issue with the landlord. There may be rules restricting the hours of use of the A/C unit? Or, perhaps the landlord can find you another apartment --on the cooler side of the building, maybe?
Here's a suggestion; it may be possible to add a rubber gasket or cushion to isolate the A/C unit from the metal window frame? (Don't expect your landlord or your neighbor to think of this. You may need to suggest this to both.)
Seattle isn't usually so hot. We're having record heat this week, but normally you don't need air conditioning running constantly.
Good luck with the landlord and your neighbor!
