Question about Maytag Portable Air Conditioner M6P09S2A

4 Answers

Maytag model #M6P09S2A portable room a/c

This unit does not cool, problem appears to be the "outdoor" motor for the cooling the condenser coils. The motor does not start, I replaced the capacitor, still does not start, if I hand spin the motor, it will run, but the motor gets very hot, but the A/C unit will cool. I am guessing that the starter coils in the motor may be bad. Do I replace the motor, and where can I get one. it is a Love Star Ind. Corp. LS-40T1-4P WK4-25T1-A08A.

    The unit does not cool, problem appears to be the fan that blows out
    the heat. The motor does not start, if I hand spin the motor, it will
    run smooth, but the motor won't start. The compressor will cool for as
    long as it doesn't get too hot, then the unit starts blowing hot air. I
    am guessing that the starter coils in the motor may be bad. Do I
    replace the motor, and where can I get one? It is a Love Star Ind.
    Corp.LS-53T1-4P (WK4-30T1-A08A). No luck finding the part and Maytag is
    sending me to their service.

I had the same issue pop up on me on one of these units that was only days old---the folks at maytag told me there were no known issues on these units (recalls, etc) so I figured the blinders were on and stonewall going up. So I got a multimeter, cracked the case on the unit, checked for continuity through the motor windings, and found none. Then pulled the lower squirrel cage apart enough to get the fan off motor shaft, motor out and apart, and found a blown thermal fuse in the motor. $1.69 at Radio Shack and a crimp connector or two and Ahhhhhh, cold air again. Not that hard to do folks! Enjoy.

I found the info on bullhamster2 site about the motor not running to be very helpfull,, the motor back end can be pulled off with out taking it out of the housing and the thermal fuse is hooked on the red power wire only. replacing the fuse makes the motor work again..

This motor is also used in the Royal Sovereign Model ARP 1000ES portable A/C sold at Sears. They have a parts blow up that shows the motor and price list at their web site.

My frigidaire air conditioner is making my apartment feel damp and when i took my filter out to clean it that part was damp too! What do I do to fix this?


You may have a clogged drain or the unit is installed without enough angle pitch for the water to drain to the back of the unit toward the outdoor section of the unit. I'm assuming it's a window air conditioner? The moisture condenses on the cooling coil near the filter and should drip down into a condensate drain pan, then the water should drain to the back of the unit into a pan at the condenser coil fan that is rejecting the heat outside. The fan blade usually has a ring on the outdoor fan that pick up the condensate moisture the fling accumulated water onto the hot condenser coil to evaporate it. Also the filter should not be touching the cooling coil. Make sure it in the correct slot. Some a/c cooling coil require a wetting agent that allow the water to slide down the coil and not pull off of the coil into the indoor circulating fan.

Do I need a outside cooling unit for a Coleman 7900 Presidential lll gas heat and cooling unit


Yeah, youd have to look at the model on the Indoor coil box, furnace will be setting on top of it. Youll need the model off that coil box to get the correct tonnage of the outdoor condensing unit, you can go 1/2 ton smaller on outdoor for greater efficiency.

My heat heat pump does not make the defrost cycle. The outdoor unit gets full of ice and that make jump the braker.


Sounds to me like the defrost board in the outdoor condensing unit has gone bad. To remove the ice build up until you can get a qualified service technician to replace it, you can run warm water over it to melt the ice, or turn your thermostat to cooling until the ice m. Running the system in cooling will warm the condenser coil, thus melting the ice.

1. Check whether the winding resistance and operation current of the compressor are normal.
2. Check weather the high and low pressure is normal when the unit is running after 20 min of run time.
3 Check ( whether the coil pipe sensor is normal ) Whether the contact of the inserter on the circuit board is well, the coil pipe temperature sensor is fixed ( Whether there is water in the fixed clap ) the evaporator of the indoor unit is well, the key is to check the evaporator temperature detected by the coil pipe temperature sensor has reached the cooling or heating temperature ( Weather the temperature is higher or equal to 77 Deg F in cooling mode.
4. Check whether the surface of the condenser is to dirty,it should be cleaned when it is too dirty.
5. Check weather the capacitance of the outdoor motor and fan is not damaged, it should be replaced when it is damaged.
6. If the above items are normal, the electric control board should be replaced.

I meant the AC does not cool


Make sure the mode is set to freeze and temperature is set to below the room temperature.

If it is a split system, check the outdoor unit whether it is running. If it is running, see if you can reach and feel the temperature of the pipes connecting between the indoor and the outdoor unit. It should be cool.

If it is not cool, you may need to get somebody to check the refrigerant.

Sounds like dripping water when on


Water, or in this case - condensation will be created and drip from the cooling coils inside the unit outdoors, if installed correctly. This is a normal condition. Like a cold glass of water sitting on a table or counter on a hot, muggy day; condensation will form. The amount of condensation forming on the glass - and cooling coils of the A/C - is directly related to the amount of humidity in the air.

Some A/C units have fans that not only force cool air out the front of the unit - but also spray condensate on the condenser coils (the coils that get hot and are visible from the outside) to help cool them down.

If water is dripping indoors - the A/C is tilted inward or drain holes on the bottom edges of the rear (outdoors) are clogged. Adjust the A/C support(s) so that it is tilted back (the bottom rear should be about 1/2" or 10mm lower than the bottom front) and inspect & clear obstructions from the drain holes as needed.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Sounds like the compressor may be overheating. You need to check the outdoor condenser coil it may be stopped up with dirt, in turn, overheating the compressor. The condenser coil looks like a radiator and the outdoor fan blows through it, in a sense releasing the hot air from the building. If the coil is stopped up, it can not release the heat. You can wash this coil out with a hose and sprayer. Just be careful not to get the motor wet and be sure to shut off power.

Fan motor in outside unit is not running


Hi,
If it is not running and the compressor is, then you have a bad motor...you can get a new motor easily online from www.grainger.com

Home Air Condition cooling problem


Hello. If your outdoor coils are dirty it's a good chance the indoor coils are dirty also. Clean the indoor coils and flush out the condensate line.
I know it's tempting to feel the air and try to decide if the unit is working properly but, you need to use a thermometer and while the unit is running check the temperature at the return air vent and then check the temperature at the supply vent closest to the unit. Remember to let the thermometer set for about 5 minutes before reading.
You should be looking for about 15 degrees F cooling between the return and supply.
If your coils are clean make sure the outdoor fan is operating properly. The air coming out of the outdoor fan should feel warm, almost hot. If not you may need to check your pressures. Good luck and let me know what you find.
