Question about Fedders AEY12F7F Wall/Window Air Conditioner

Open Question

My Fedders AEY12F7F-D has stopped working after only 2yrs. Two a/c company's have said it's the motor and to just replace the entire unit or fix it for $400, it turns on but just doesn't do anything. Should I take the motor out and have it rewound?

SOURCE: purchased a fedders a/c 18000 unit still under

Check the capacitor for the fan motor. You can do that with a multimeter with the capacitor test function or if the capacitor looks swollen then it is probably bad. Also, make sure the fan rotates freely by hand. Let me know if you need more help.

Hi - there is a fuse inside the unit and if replacing it does not solve the problem, it could be a problem with the heating element itself. The heater looks like this:

If this part has failed, you may have trouble locating a replacement - as an online appliance parts store has indicated that the part is no longer available from the manufacturer. You may find the part on another parts supplier's (whether online or at a local store) shelf however. You'll have to do some checking or calling to see if someone has though. Of course, if it is just a bad connection or blown fuse, replacement of this part won't be needed.

A handyman should be able to tackle this - as it is an issue with the electric heater circuit - not a cooling circuit or refrigerant problem. Explain the problem to him and ask if he feels confident troubleshooting this problem for you, first. The heater itself will be located behind the grille and cold refrigerant coil. Tracing the 2 wires back far enough should reveal the fuse location. The fuse may be an in-line type - or one that is mounted to a panel. Either way, your handyman should be able to find it.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Leaking inside. Fedders A3X05F2A-J Unit

Mellisia, the problem very well may be, that the drain pan hole under the unit, on the outside may be clogged. When that happens, water backs up and leaks out the front of the unit.The drain hole should be near one of the corners of the drain pan. And with Fedders, it may be on the edge/lip of the drain pan. The clog, may appear to be part of the drain pan and that's why you haven't noticed it.

Inspect the drain pan closely. If you can't find it. You can create one, by CAREFULLY drilling a hole at one of the corners of the drain pan. It doesn't have to be a large hole 1/8" to 1/4" should do.Be sure the unit is OFF and unplugged from the wall, before attempting this. Also, once the drill bit penetrates the drain pan STOP. You don''t want the drill bit to pierce the coils on the back of the unit.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

How you tighten fan on motor

Hello, usually there is a set screw or a clamp that hold the fan blade to the motor. If it is a set screw just tighten it up, if it is a clamp it must be slid over the hub.

My fedders a/c will turn on fine but after some minutes the fan will stop but the compresor will still work. i will haveto turn it off and turn it on again after 10 minutes and it will work fine again. but...

You need to replace you fan motor. It is going bad and the amount of amps to keep it going is causing it to over heat. The next time you try it and the motor kicks off see if the motor frame is hot. Be careful I have seen the hot enough to cook eggs. These motors can run between 68 dollars and 160 dollars. The age of the unit and your ability to replace the motor dictates a repair or a replacement. If you ck on the price of the motor and want to do it your self I will be happy to walk you thru it. good luck

Unit is not heating but fuse is good

Heating element inside of unit has overheated and is possibly burnt out. This isn't an easy fix for a novice due to the location of the heating coils located behind the a/c evaporator coil. The coil looks just like the coils in a toaster and can be seen if you pull the unit out of the casing. The part can be purchased at any appliance parts house if you take the model and serial number with you. Good Luck on your repairs

Part is no longer available -

Maytag window units are made by Fedders. Try going to the fedders website and get their contact info and call them. They should be able to give you a replacement number or tell you where you can get one. Plus, if you have a company around you that sells hvac motors, like United Refridgeration they may have a motor for your unit. But you have to remove yours and take it to them for a possible match.
