Noisy air conditioner: Our brand-new window ac unit makes an unholy racket every 15-20 minutes or so.

I assume the racket is from the cooling bits inside the air conditioner reving up to maintain the temperature.
Our unit is sitting in the window, with towels wedged into the empty spaces between the ac and the window frame (the accordion side pieces didn't quite fit, so we haven't put them in). It might be making such a ruckus because the towels aren't stabilizing the unit enough, which would beg the question- what else can we put in the empty space to keep bugs and hot air out?
Any suggestions for dampening the noise while still enjoying the sweet cool comfort of air conditioning for the rest of the summer? My google-fu has failed me.
