    These Maytag portable A/C units were manafactured by the (now-defunct) Feders corporation. Maytag took over the warrantys in Dec 2007 after Feders filed for Chapter 11. Unfortunately, Maytag has NO CLUE how long it will be before these units can be serviced.... everything is tied up in Chapter 11 legal ****. It has already been 7 months and they still can't answer the basic question of when? In the meantime, we are dying in the current heat wave here.

It is probably either the high pressure switch or the frost control. The high temp switch usually trips because the condenser coil is dirty which does not allow it to exhaust heat very well. The frost control will trip if the system gets below 39 degrees on the pipes. This is usually do to low refrigerant or dirty filters. Good Luck!

Compressor only stays on for 2-3 minutes than shuts off


if the sensors are okay, it might be the compressor overheating, my portable ac (moretti elite ac) is also behaving the same, especially when i turn the fan to max. the compressor shuts down about 7 mins and turns on again in about 5 mins, now i found out when i turn to medium or low the compressor runs normally. i think when on medium or low setting some of the cool air directs/channels to the compressor thus cooling it more.

Ac unit runs, inside blower shuts off after 2 mins, compressor continues to run, t-stat still calling for cool


My central AC unit decided to stop on the hottest day of the year. It would start and run normally for a few minutes and then the blower would shut off. After checking the breakers, thermostat and overflow shut off (did not have one) I saw something about a blower motor capacitor. This was easy to get to and replace and my last hope before waiting for someone to come fix it. The capacitor cost $4.04 with tax and had my AC working again. Needless to say I was beyond happy. I hope this can help others with a similar problem.

I have a shenbao mennelium aircon its gets cool after i turn the unit on but after 10-15 min it stops blowing cold air i have to shut the unit off and then back on to get cold air and also the compressor...


Check the fan,to make sure it is really turning fast on the high mode with ac on,not just fan.It sounds like the fan is slowing down,and not cooling the condenser,therefore cause the head pressure to rise,and producing warm air.The fan motor would have to be replaced to fix the problem if this is the case.

It blows cold air for 5 min. and the it blows cool air for 15 min. the room warms up . Why does it stops blowing cold air continuasly???? The thermostat was disconectet on purpose so it coul clow cold air...


See if you can reposition the thermister on the facing of the evaporator coils. That could be it or the thermister might be bad. They don't use copper/mercury sensing bulbs these days. They use these cheap thermisters.

Blows cold but shuts down no freeze up


Check the capacitor. It should be a dual capacitor , runs both compressor and fan. This sounds like your problem only because both the compressor and the fan go out together. Good Luck Hope I helped

Ac starts kicks on and off every couple mins


Sounds like the compressor is the one making the "NOISE". If the sound sounds like something trying to start, then kicking off, its probably the compressor and not the fan. Hence no cool air.

A.c compressor kicks on and off


How long has it been there, without experiencing any problems? This just start recently? Have you cleaned intake air filters at ceiling? Fan keeps running?

Comp shuts off


Coils could be dirty. Compressor could be getting too hot and cutting off. Will have one fan motor that turns condenser fan and evaporator blower.
