Our Maytag m6y12f2a-b window air conditioner compressor will not turn off sometimes. the temperature was set at 75 and when I woke this morning the temperature in the room was 71 according to our thermostat in the room. I turned up the temp on the AC and the compressor did not stop. It didn't make a difference what temp it was set too. I turned off the AC and it just kept humming like it wasn't turned off. I had to unplug it to get it to stop. This has happened before and it always seems to correct itself after being unplugged for a bit. I was thinking it is a bad thermostat but I don't know if I can replace that or not

It would appear that your not the only person to have issues with these units. This Epinions review makes it seem to me like these control boards have a tenancy to go out. I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that your unit is nearing the end of it's useful life. I agree with jeff1 that it may soon be time to start looking for an alternative.
