Two things could be the problem.

The one you might be able to fix is a dirty outside coil. If you look at the outside portion of the airconditioner and notice the coil is plugged up with dirt and lint, all it needs is a good cleaning.
However, if the outside unit looks fine and the coil is not full of dirt, then the culprit will more than likely be a broken discharge valve on the compressor and this is a major repair not suited for the home-owner.
DO NOT run the air conditioner until it's repaired or more (and extensive) damage might occur.

I think i have a bad fan motor bearing. Unit is very loud and barely cooling.


Hi,
The bearing may be going bad, but that should not effect the cooling much if the fan is running...there must be other problems...

Here is a tip for other things you can check....

Maytag M6Y18F7A Air Conditioner troble light turns off


you have to open the unit up or atleast see if the fan is failing. The blower motor is usually a double shaft and cool the compressor and also blows the air across the evaporator. Look for the air to stop blowing then the compressor to shake from overheating.

Noisy Amana Quiet Zone air conditioner


The compressor sounds like the springs inside are bad. You can live with this are get the compresor eplaced if it is over five years old buy a new unit. Compressor will cost more than a new unit. Russ

Fan motor has loud screech.


Check for oil ports on motor. Usually red or yelloe plug in caps. No more than 20 drops of oil. I usually use sewing machine oil.

Outside makes loud noise


I would take a very close look at every solder joint there is between the inside unit and the outside. If you observe oil at any point it indicates a leak at that point. That is an expensive price for what you say was done. Check your invoice for the amount of refrigerant they or he added to the system. Compare it with the amount stated on the outside unit nameplate. Check for frost on the suction (big line) by the outside unit. If there is frost your coil is frozen up. If this is the case turn the fan on and the cooling off. Allow it to run in this manor for about an hour to defrost the A coil. Then return to the cooling mode.
