Question about Maytag Portable Air Conditioner M6P09S2A

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.

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.

My 9000 Btu Kenwood Continental Series split unit shuts down compressor after every 10-15 minuits regardles of room temp. Gas pressure is OK & I have tried replacenig cooling sensor but to no use. I am...


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.

A/c seems not to working cooling down room What are my options?


Could be several factors. Let me start by saying the unit you have should cool a room that totals around 450 square feet (Approx.).

If you do not know your rooms square footage just multiply the width of the room x the length of the room.

(e.g. 20' x 10' = 200 SF)

The above 450 SF is for a room with typical 8' ceilings. This is also a "Rule-Of-Thumb" measurement, as windows, doors, insulation, and air leakages (heat gain) also play a role in calculation of heat loads. But this will get you close....

If the room is larger than 450 S.F. in size then the unit is too small for this size room.

A rule of tumb for sizing is: every 600 square feet requires a ton (or 12,000 BTU) of cooling. Again, without doing a proper load calculation on the room or area being cooled, it is hard to be exact.

The other possibility is the unit is not operating as it should due to mechanical or other issues. This is hard to specify. COuld be refrigerant levels are low, coils dirty, or filter dirty.

Not cooling like it should


Hi,
There can be a couple of things that could be happening...
The first and easiest thing is to check the air filter. Make sure that it is clean... clean it or replace it. Next check the air vents to make sure that they are open and giving you good air flow...
Also check to make sure that you are not icing up on the indoor coil... ice will tell you that you are low on refrigerant. You also could be low and not be icing over, but you would need to have gauges on the unit to check that.
Finally check and clean the outdoor coil...this also can give you problems if the heat is not being removed from the outdoor unit efficiently...
You may also have a unit that is sized in such a way that it hits the balance point at about 85...that means that your heat gain is equal to the capacity of the unit...I often try to size them for about that here in Northern PA. because wqhen seldom get hotter then that and the unit then is much more effective at removeing humidity at lower temperatures...

You can also check out the tips that I have wrote about Air conditioning2_bing.gif trouble shooting and maintenance...

Here is one about cleaning the condenser coil and at the bottom of that one are links to others..

Model # m6p09s2a portable maytag air conditoner unit...red light keeps blinking at the unit where power button is located....unit will not turn on. the light just keeps blinking


Greetings,

I have the same model air conditioner, and had the same symptoms. As you've probably discovered, Fedders is the company that actually built it, and went of business. No one is supporting it any more.

However, you may be in luck. I fixed the problem by simply tipping the unit almost all the way over on its back (leave a little gap) and letting the water drain out of the hose and the filter. After that, it started right up.

Hope that works for you. Stay cool. :)

it should freeze that room with 9000btu do you hear the compressor turning on or is it blowing jus air? also helps if you switch the air intake to recirculate the room air rather than intaking the air from outside

Exhaust fan running slow


sounds like the compressor is turning off cause of high pressure. check the coil that the exhaust hose connects to, if dirty clean it. if the fan is not blowing enough air threw the coil the unit will build up high side pressure and cut out, but will turn back on when pressure drops. if that dont help, maybe the fan motor is bad or needs taken apart and oiled.
