The beeping might be an alarm that indicates the coils are iced over by too much humidity in the air...and/or the unit is overheating etc.
shut off power to the unit for a few hours, go out somewhere if it is too stuffy inside.. see if the unit operates better when you return... I also suggest not running these things constantly, this causes some units to ice up and **** up the power..
hope the unit does get replaced, newer ones are more efficient.

I had the same problem and was ready to consider it dead, but I found a last minute fix. The power cord on my unit appears to be picky with my wall outlet. The slightest wiggle causes the power to be cut off. I found that plugging an extension cord or power strip into the outlet, then plugging the AC into that fixed the problem. It powered up and stayed on.

Make sure that the electrical plug is not wired backwards (positive to ground, negative to positive post). If that were the case, you would get a warning beep, and the unit would not come on. Not having a manual, this is one thing to check first. For non-polarized devices, it doesn't matter about the outlet or device wiring, but many things are polarized these days and the electrical feed has to be correct. Good luck, and hope this helps.

    Has this unit been in storage, and how long? I was just thinking about it- you're getting a microprocessor error, which can mean a lot of things. Your manual might give you a hint in the troubleshooting guide, but I suspect that possibly the compressor has siezed up, after being in storage, or maybe oxidation has eroded some relay contacts, things of this nature. You can spray electrical contact cleaner on switches and relay contacts, however, you have to take the relays apart to access the contacts, and they sometimes require a good scrubbing with fine emory cloth, etc. One things for sure, and that is the startup process is being stopped. This unit will have no easy answer, and have to be troubleshot to determine the problem, step by step (point to point electrical, and then analyzed). Hopefully, someone else has encountered this problem, and there is a simple "fix", but the chances seem pretty low.

Step1 Check that the power cord is securely plugged into the electrical outlet and that the power switch is in the "On" position.
Step 2 Plug another device into the electrical outlet to ensure it is working. If the other device does not work, check the fuse box for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. Replace the fuse and reset the circuit breaker as needed.
Step 3 Wait for the air compressor to turn on if you shut off then turned on the air conditioner quickly or if you quickly switched the temperature control to a warmer setting and then a colder setting.
Step 4 Turn the temperature control to a colder setting. If the room is too cool, the sensor within the air conditioner will not start the compressor until the temperature control is set to a colder setting.

    Step 1
    Check the thermostat on your Maytag air conditioner and make sure it is in the cooling position. Also make sure the thermostat temperature is lower than the ambient temperature in the room. Do not guess at the temperature in the room; use a thermometer to be sure. Reset the thermostat temperature to at least three to four degrees lower than the temperature in the room, then listen for the fan to come on.


    Step
    2
    Make sure there is power flowing to the electrical outlet. Unplug the air conditioner and plug another appliance into the receptacle. If there is no power flowing, check your electrical panel for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker. If power is flowing, continue your troubleshooting steps.


    Step
    3
    Check the condensate pump if your air conditioner has one. If the condensate reservoir is full, the unit may not come on. Empty the reservoir, power the air conditioner on and off and check to see if the fan is running.


    Step
    4
    Check the condition of the filters. If the filters in your air conditioner are blocked, the unit may run poorly or not run at all. Before you call in a repairman, make sure you pull the filter and check its condition. If you have an extra filter on hand, replace the filter with a new one and see if the air conditioner starts to run. If no extra filters are available, carefully clean your existing filter and try to start the air conditioner unit.

Remove the unit from the window,and dissassemble and use a water hose and clean the inside of the unit,remove all debris,this is most likely the problem.
