I have a Maytag air conditioner. Model number M6T12F2A. I need to replace the filter because the light is blinking. I can't find how to get to the filter. Do I remove the whole front or is there a slot I can open to get to it?

You will need to remove the whole front. Most window units, the front just pulls off. Just be be careful doing it.

    Actually, on that model, the filter pulls out from the front right underneath the blowers there are tabs on either side you pull toward you and then it just slides right out.

The filter light keeps blinking on our thermostat but I don't know what filter needs to be changed.

It usually helps when you put the model numbers of the thermostat or furnace. Some need to be reset, some are simply a count down clock and its a reminder to change them.

Power light is blinking and the system will not run

The blinking power light indicates that the water collection tank needs to be emptied. Be sure to turn the unit OFF & unplug it, before draining the tank. And while you're at it, now would be a good time to remove and clean the air intake filter. Once these 2 things are completed, the unit should run as designed.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

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


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. :)

Just purchased a maytag m6t12f2a air conditioner and I need a remote

If you purchased this unit new, it should have came with the remote. If it is a used model, you might try writing down the model, serial, and product number and check with the Maytag Dealer, or go online with all information and see if you can order a new one.

Water leaking from Maytag M6T12F2A is this expensive to repair

The drain hole is likely clogged with lent and trash. Make sure it is level or leaning dow a bit on the back side. I had to drill five holes in the bottom rear of my old window unit to stop water draining down the insdie wall. Make sure you dont drill into a usefull component of the AC or kiss it goodbye.

Unit shut down & info light is flashing

Look for a pan that collects water or a door switch, the pan (if full willshut down the Unit ) or you didn't replace the panel properly. The first thing to check would be the POWER , Breaker ?.

How many amps is the M6Q10F2A window air conditioner drawing?

I tried to locate your model but Maytag uses the first 3 letters in the model number to find their product. The number you gave would not work. I can tell you this, the voltage and amperage are located behind the filter on a data plate. The higher the voltage the lower the amperage, Hope that helps, Sea Breeze

Air conditioner turns on then shuts itself off immediately

There's something wrong with your aircon. Usually the lights will start to blink. Depending on the brand and model, the number of times it blinks will give you an error code which tells you what's spoilt. You may like to check this out
