I see that your Frigidaire dehumidifier is displaying an error code of "ES" and you would like to the meaning of that error code. The "ES" error code stands for evaporator thermistor error. This could be a possible problem with your control panel, thermistor, or a wiring harness. I would recommend contacting your manufacturer for further assistance with your dehumidifier. Best of luck! -Matt
could you be mistaking the room humidity indicator for the time? reason I ask is on these one display units this happens more frequently than Id care it too , the one display shows both time and room humidity also set point humidity , the only way one can tell is on some models there is a tiny light that shows up next to labeled function , easy to miss It , also if your machine is sort of new (last few years) it has been decided that it's more efficient to let the circulation fan run all the time , regardless of room humidity . this makes it a little annoying (noise) but they do cycle the compressor to regulate the room humidity
Do you mean error code AS instead of A5? If so, error code AS commonly refers to a sensor issue. Because it is a smaller appliance, repairs are often more costly than the actual unit replacement. You may want to check and see if your dehumidifier is still under warranty and if so, reach out to the manufacturer to determine the exact warranty coverage.
Here is a link to the Owners Manual for the model number you listed. However, it does not have a LCD display on the Control Panel, which would show the Error Code P1. This is a Kitchen Aid brand that was manufactured by Whirlpool with the AD40USL5 Model Number. This came directly from Whirlpool's website. Hope it helps you in some way.
On the control panel the 3rd button from the left is the timer button.
If you press this button when the unit is running the number display on the left will start blinking- use the up/down arrows to set the time that you want the unit to run.
If you press the timer button when the unit is off it will run on and off for the designated time you set- eg if you set 1 then every 1 hour the machine will switch on and run for 1 hour.
(The left # will just blink once you have the time you want just leave it and eventually the normal humidity setting reading will show)
SETTING THE MACHINE TO TURN ON 1. Make sure the dehumidifier is plugged in but turned off. 2. Press the button with the clock symbol below it. 3. Press the up arrow to set how many hours until you want the machine to turn ON. If you have pressed the button for more hours than you wanted then press the down arrow to lower the number of hours. 4. After you have stopped pressing the arrow buttons the display will return to the original display showing temperature and relative humidity. 5. After the above steps are completed the dehumidifier will turn ON in the number of hours that you have set (programmed).

Condenser coils do not freeze, it is the evaporator coils that freeze. If it is icing up then the setting is too low for the area it is in, basically the humidistat will never be satisfied so it will run continually and end up freezing the evap coils, the coils could also freeze if the filter is dirty or there is an air flow problem.
