Hello, and thanks for the help! A few months ago, I purchased three of these units for our apartment, one for the living room and each of the two bedrooms here. Naturally, it's the one in my bedroom that's the problem! The fan on the unit works just fine, but as soon as the a/c itself kicks in, it's like trying to sleep with an outboard motor in the room. I've made sure the unit is properly supported and that all the screws I can get to are tight, but nothing seems to work for very long. The two others are quiet as you please - what's wrong with this one?
I assume that I'll have to call Sears in to look at it, but if there's anything I can do myself, I'd much prefer it. Thanks again!

My unit was working fine for a couple years but now it won't evaporate. It still cools fine but it also collects about 16 ounces of water every hour and then shuts itself off until I drain it. I'm wondering it the evaporative mechanism it broken some how.
From what you have described, it sounds like the fan motor may be seized. In which case, it should be replaced. Depending on the age of the unit, it may be better to replace it than repair it. As parts and labor to repair it, can be almost as much as purchasing a new unit. As the motor assembly alone, runs about $150.00 + Labor.
I hope this has helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.
hopefully you replaced motor with the same Rpm HP Volts and made sure the rotation of fan was correct.. Might have a bad/defective motor I would take it back to whomever you purchased it from as the should exchange it. Good Luck
no its not suppose to do this,the pump has a broken spring in side it which creates the viberation,unfortunatly the pump is a sealed unit so it can not be repaired.you have to replace the pump,cashie,probably be cheaper depending on age of unit to buy another a c unit.
Hello =D 12000 BTU will cool approximately 450 to 550 square feet. That's around 137 to 167 m/2.
Unless your name is Beelzebub and the room your trying to cool is really really really really south (or in this case down). =D <that's not two horns is it? ";-} That should be more then enough to keep everything cool.
Same thing happened a few weeks ago. My wife said " its not cooling". I read the manual and it says., Clean filters ...we did and hello. works fine. She was so frustrated she was going to take it back. These filters accummulate dust fast. So check there first. Hope this helps.
I would lkike to know where to get replacement filters or an extension exhaust duct.
This may be due to the size of the room. The master bedroom may be smaller than the living room? The unit is therefore reaching setpoint temperature and cycling (shutting off)? Or it could also be a faulty thermostat.
Nothing...Maytag SUCKS!! I have the same problem and Maytag says it could take months before they get new parts to fix the faulty control panel. My unit never shuts off. Only way to turn it off is by unplugging it out of my wall socket and it has already caused my living room electrical socket to blow out. I will never buy Maytag again.
