Question about Maytag Portable Air Conditioner M6P09S2B

1 Answer

Excessive water draining from portable A/C

We have a Maytag portable air conditioner that recently has been draining water out of the back of the unit (onto the floor). This occurs when we are running it in A/C mode. We don't run it in fan or dehumidify mode. We have had this unit for several years now and we did not have to drain the unit except once a month or so. Now, we have to drain it several times a day. It's almost like the unit is running as a dehumidifier, but it is cooling the room fine and sounds ok. Please advise. Thanks, in advance.

It appears that you have changed the location of the unit, I mean have you relocated to an area whwre the humidity is high, usuallly coastal areas have high humidity.If not is there a door that is being constantly left open causing a lot of fresh high humidity air into the room

Whers does water evacuate from portable ac unit


there is a holding tank in the bottom of the unit, on the front right by the floor is a rubber cap that plugs this tank. water evaporates from there, if the tank gets too full, the power button will flash red and the unit will not turn on. put pan under, pull plug and drain if this happens. if it doesnt happen, don't worry about exhausting the water as its not a problem.

Water leak from Electrolux Kelvinator EPK09CRN2A portable air conditioner


You'll have to open it up and check for a displaced condensate collector. This may look like a funnel with a drain tube that is supposed to go to the tray

I own 2 Haier air conditioners. Same model number, purchased at the same time. Plugged them in yesterday and one is collecting water in the bottom and shuts off. The only way to get it to come back on is...


Condensation occurs when warm, humid air is pulled across a cold fins of an air conditioner and blown out the front as cool, dry air.

What is happening with your air conditioner sounds to be normal operation - here's why:

The condensate usually drips onto the ground from traditional window air conditioner units or through a pipe to the ground from remote air handlers of split systems. Since yours has no place to drain away into soil or waste pipe, it is collected in a compartment that must be emptied, just like a dehumidifier. When the compartment is full, the unit shuts off - otherwise the compartment would overflow on the the flooring or carpet. This could be a very expensive repair if hardwood floors were damaged or carpeting were to become moldy. Even more so if the the space under yours were finished - like an apartment building or if you used this on the second floor of your home - and damage to the ceiling below were damaged.

You could operate the device if it were connected by a hose to a drain at or below the bottom of the connection point (a floor drain, shower drain, etc.) or if the unit were placed on a counter top and allowed to drain into a sink or other drain / waste pipe below the the hose connection point. The hose must not get higher than the connection point at the drain plug on the air conditioner to work properly.

I hope this helps and good luck.

A/c is window mounted - tilted slightly to the outside. Water drips from the middle bottom of the unit, and onto the sill. I don't see any drain hole. Is there a drain hole that I can't see, or do I...


water should drip out back. You may need to clean floor of unit so water can run to the back
I'm happy to help.

Keeps filling with water and shutting off.


Air conditioners remove moisture from the air like a dehumidifier does. With portable units it is captured in a removable container and when full will turn the unit off so it won't overflow onto the floor. There should be option for a hose to attach to the bucket which could be run to a drain so you won't have to keep emptying the bucket. Just remember the a/c unit needs to be higher than the drain.

Top tray not draining


I called the service tech, before Maytag stopped supporting this unit. (built by Fedders with Maytag name). Fedders has gone out of business (7-09). The tech guy said that the tray gets clogged up with crud and the solution is to try to flush the tray out with water and compressed air. I had the problem of water leaking from the trays but not properly draining through the drain hose. This solution did the trick.
