Unit will not power up at all. receptacle tests good
I have maytag (fedders) M7D24E7B window a/c unit that is still under warranty but since fedders is now in chapter 11 bankruptcy I can not get warranty repairs done and maytag is dragging their feet, saying there are no parts available so they can't even send a technician out to check it.

I'm sure you can find an Owner's Manual for your unit, if you do a Google search for Maytag M6P09S2B Portable AC Owner's Manual. Most will be free downloads, some you may have to pay for. n addition, the Maytag AC Units were made by Fedders/Airwell under the model # AZ6P09S2A. So, if you can't find it under Maytag, search for the Fedders model number.
Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.
Sadly, for now, the only thing you can do, is turn the unit OFF & Unplug it. The fault may be in the AC unit or it could be in the receptacle it's plugged into. If it's an older unit, that was made by Fedders for Maytag, I'd strongly suggest buying a new one. As Fedders has been out of business for several years.\\
Do you have anything else on the same circuit? I have heard about many of these units, not just Fedders, that will not run on a circuit that has another appliance or something that is pulling a lot of amperage. Also, check and make sure the receptacle is not worn and the plug is loose fitting. Other wise, you definitely could have a weak internal connection in the cord. Hope this helps.
Try duct tape , pvc pipping and cardboard, Tape the pipe to the back of the ac and them use a cardboard piece with a whole cut out for the pvc pipe in the window ,coat the cardboard with several layers of tape inside and out..It should work for awhile..Or call the Maytag/Fedders maybe they will send it to you free...
The test and reset is a GFCI device. They do go bad sometimes. The solution is to cut that plug end off, and install a regular cord end that is capable of handling the rated amperage of the unit. ( I assume this is 120-volt unit)
You should replace the wall receptacle with a GFCI receptacle where the unit is plugged in to prevent electrocution
Check all of the connections at the outlet. If everything looks ok test the outlet that it is plugged into with a tester. They can be picked up at most stores for around 8 dollars. If you dont have a tester you can just plug in another device that you have into the outlet and see if it turns on. If everything checks out OK then there is an issue with the A/C unit. It could be alot of different things. My recommendation to you is if it is under warranty contact Maytag and send it in for service. If it is not under warranty you can either contact Maytag and send it in for service or you can call a local heating and cooling shop and see if they can service it for you. Keep me posted - Tech101
