Re: Normal that copper pipe shows frosting?
No not normal, this is a sign that the unit has been overcharged with refrigerant. If it is just frost or condensate on the copper pipe that is not a big problem. But if the frost extends onto the compressor dome, then I would be worried. Sometimes fridges are charged in an area with a lower ambient temperature and then moved and sold in another area, hence the slight overcharge. No problem. Hope this answers your question. And yes when the unit cycles the frost will melt and of course drip onto your floor.

P1 is part of a normal function of
your dehumidifier. When your compressor is working it will build frost
on the evaporator coils. When there is enough frost on the coils the
unit will go into a P1 deicing program. This deicing cycle will last
anywhere from 15-45 minutes. Once complete it will automatically resume
normal function. The cooler the room the more often this function will

Below the evaporator fan behind the back cover inside the freezer is the evaporator coils. Remove the
back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL)
or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer
are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of
cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.
check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In
most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board.
If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.
You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks
and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace
the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the
timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.
Not real sure just what you are saying as to what pan? The copper pipes that go to the evap plates where the ice is made are supposed to frost over. They get colder than dew point of the air so this is normal. But all the pipes should frost. Does the unit shut down and give any type of beeping noises? This would be the control giving you a trouble code. You may have a water valve leaking. Turn unit off and see if water continues to run. All water should stop within a few seconds. Let me know what you find. Please verify model and serial numbers.
