Question about Maytag M6Y12F2A Air Conditioner
My dad lost the manual and i cant figure this out. it wont turn on no matter what i do. it rained and it was wet inside, but i cant figure out how to fix. i cant afford a professional. i vacuumed out as much as i could, but it still wont run. it has EE on the display. help?!
It's probably the control board inside the control panel. I had the same problem and it moisture shorted out the board. You can order a new one from Sears Parts for about $45

This worked, but it's not pretty--
I have an Admiral window A/C unit that did the same thing three years ago--EE and no operation. Technicians told me it was the control circuit board. I ordered another board from Sears but Admiral apparently doesn't make this model's replacement board. I was told to throw the A/C unit away and get another! It's was only five years old at the time and had only been used for two years.
Undaunted, I took the front off (ALWAYS UNPLUG THE UNIT FIRST) and looked for obvious problems then reassembled it. It work for about ten seconds and then went to EE. I figured the control board was overheated and I drilled vent holes in the front panel. I can't say this is what fixed it but it worked the rest of the year and right up until yesterday when it went back to EE and no operation. If you think my first solution was tacky, read on.
I unplugged the unit and pulled the front off. I removed the plastic cover to the control circuit board and unscrewed the circuit board from this plastic cover--everything was hanging out in the open. I depressed the control circuit board's on/off microswitch then re-plugged the wall plug. The EE light didn't come on for about ten seconds. I try different combinations of unplugging the cord, holding down the on/off microswitch and replugging. (I have time on my hands). I finally found that by replugging the wall cord while holding down the on/off microswitch and quickly tapping the fan speed microswitch I could get the A/C unit to cycle continuously through it's functions while flashing an 88 at the end of each cycle. I let it cycle for about ten minutes then unplugged the AC wall plug. I re-plugged the wall plug. It now works like it should (no need to hold the on/off microswitch). It's been running for an hour now. All the wiring is still hanging out and the plastic front pieces are on the floor but I can live with that. All the control panel functions work as they shoud, I just have to reference the plastic cover sitting next to A/C unit. "Easy Peasy," as Groucho used to say.
I'd say, "Kids, don't try this at home," but.....
