Unit is defrosting – Allow the unit time
to automatically defrost. The error will
clear after the unit self defrosts.

I just sent u an email about my danby showing a P2 sorry it was a P1.


P1- means the dehumidifier is in a defrost mode. This occurs when the temperature on the evaporator gets too cold and the unit shuts down to defrost (a defrost cycle).

P2- means the internal bucket is full of water.

Hope this helps!

Can't turn it on. Power digital readout doesn't work.


Mine would not turn on at all, found the contact pads for the buttons was corroded. Used an eraser and cleaned them, working good now. Of course the whole thing has to come apart to get to the contact pads.

How do I clean this humidifer? I have the sesame street elmo and friends cool mist humidifier and I cannot find the manual for cleaning instructions. thank you


The outside you can clean with warm soapy water. The inside can be flushed with a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water. Fill the tank and run the unit until the tank is almost empty. Pour out the remaining solution and fill the tank with more of the Bottled Distilled Water. Operate the unit for 30 minutes and the previous solution should have been flushed out by then. I would recommend using Bottled Distilled Water all the time rather than tap water. As tap water has a lot of minerals in it that can cause calcium scale and clog the unit.

Hope this helped you.

The humidifier appears to be working (with sound ) but is not collecting any water-cleaned the filter and still the same -the lit up area where it usually has the numbers is sitting at P2- I have lost the...


Alison -

A humidifier will not collect any water. A humidifier has a tank that you fill with water. The water is released / forced into dry air to make it moist, usually by a fan or ultrasonic method.

A dehumidifier has an empty tank that gets filled by the appliance extracting moisture from the air. The tank will have to be manually emptied periodically, otherwise the safety / water level switch will shut the unit off so that the tank doesn't over flow.

I suspect that you meant to say dehumidifier.. and if so, please provide the manufacturer's name and model. The "P2" indication will be difficult to interpret without knowing the manufacturer's info.

I have lost my manual. readout on the digital display is CF. humidifier operates fine. what does the display CF mean?jiml@suddenlink.net


It means Change Filter.

However, assuming that you have done that in the recent past, you probably want to know more. I'm not sure how this actually works (that is why it shows CF). I saw it for the first time after 2 or 3 years of using my humidifier. (And I had just changed the filter a week or so previously).

You may have to turn the unit off/on or even unplug it to clear the message, then it should operate normally.
