Question about Maytag Portable Air Conditioner M6P09S2B

1 Answer

Excessive water draining from portable A/C

We have a Maytag portable air conditioner that recently has been draining water out of the back of the unit (onto the floor). This occurs when we are running it in A/C mode. We don't run it in fan or dehumidify mode. We have had this unit for several years now and we did not have to drain the unit except once a month or so. Now, we have to drain it several times a day. It's almost like the unit is running as a dehumidifier, but it is cooling the room fine and sounds ok. Please advise. Thanks, in advance.

Re: Excessive water draining from portable A/C

It appears that you have changed the location of the unit, I mean have you relocated to an area whwre the humidity is high, usuallly coastal areas have high humidity.If not is there a door that is being constantly left open causing a lot of fresh high humidity air into the room

My son gave me the portable Maytag ac unit. I hav eit operating now and have it resting on the lid ofa rubber made container. So far I have suctioned off 3 large bowls of water. I can`t find how to a

There should be 2 ports in the back or on the side with screw on caps take those caps off and you should see some rubber stoppers when you remove them all of the water will drain out. From what you are saying there should be alot to drain out so be prepared for it to pour out.

Model # m6p09s2a portable maytag air conditoner light keeps blinking at the unit where power button is located....unit will not turn on. the light just keeps blinking


I have the same model air conditioner, and had the same symptoms. As you've probably discovered, Fedders is the company that actually built it, and went of business. No one is supporting it any more.

However, you may be in luck. I fixed the problem by simply tipping the unit almost all the way over on its back (leave a little gap) and letting the water drain out of the hose and the filter. After that, it started right up.

Hope that works for you. Stay cool. :)

Top tray not draining

I called the service tech, before Maytag stopped supporting this unit. (built by Fedders with Maytag name). Fedders has gone out of business (7-09). The tech guy said that the tray gets clogged up with crud and the solution is to try to flush the tray out with water and compressed air. I had the problem of water leaking from the trays but not properly draining through the drain hose. This solution did the trick.

Red light came on and air conditioner will not turn back on

I had a similar problem on a B&Q air conditioner and all it needed was the drain plug removing and the water draining out - then it started back up straight away

Water leaking from portable air conditioner

First, make sure the unit is level. If so, you have a blockage or kink in the drain tube. Careful inspection should reveal any blockage, & you may be able to poke it thru with a piece of coathanger wire. Don't use excessive force, any block should be easily freed.
