Question about Maytag Portable Air Conditioner M6P09S2A
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.
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.
