My Everstar - Model mpm-08cr-bb4 has a P1 fault on it's display. Unit will not run. Is there a way to reset?

    * The reason I don't know too much about this unit is because unit was given to me with no manual. I would like to find out where I can download the manual for this unit. Manuf: Everstar - Model #: MPM-08CR-BB4.

    * I pulled the plugs on both of the "continuous drain tube" and the "idle tube". I got about 1 cup total from both and that is it.

    * I pulled out the bucket and the float looks complete and seems to function properly if water was in it.

    * Inside the compartment where the bucket slides in, there is a small black button up on top towards the left side. When I push it and hold it, the unit runs and produces cold air. When I release the button, the unit turns off in a couple of seconds and gives me a P1 fault error. Unless the button is partially broken, it does not seem to hang down far enough for the float to keep it activated. It seems to be flush with the top of the comparment housing.

    * You talk about a "turbo" button, is that the button I am pushing or is it somewhere else?

    * I am assuming that the "continuous drain hose" should be in the bucket with no plug in it so that the condensate can drain into the bucket. Is that correct?

    * What is the purpose of the "idle hose"? Should the plug be left in it during operation?

    * There is a button on the display panel with a hand on it. It looks like a selector for fan only (top) and a/c (bottom). What is the center position for?

    * On the left side of the display, there are 2 buttons, one looks like a light bulb on and one looks like a light bulb off. When pushing it seems like you can program a time for each of those functions, is that correct and what are those functions.

    Sorry for all of these questions - Thanks

The P1 error means that the condensate collector bin is full or missing. Make sure that the bucket is properly inserted and that the float assembly is properly installed in the top of the bucket.

When the LED display window shows "P1", the unit will stop operation automatically.
Release the drain hose from the rubber clip, and pull out the rubber plug, let the drain hose slant down to a water container(which has the capacity of about 8 liters).

The unit has a drainage feature that when the unit is in stand by condition or when the digital display area shows "P1" keep pressing TURBO button for more than 3 seconds will initiate forced water drainage feature.

    Press and hold the turbo button while plugging in the unit.

    This has also worked for other customers.

    THIS is the manual for the 10CR

    are they similar??

    Sound like that switch has failed or is worn.

    A temporary (or permanent) fix would be to take the cover off of the air conditioner.

    Right above where the water catch is there is a switch in there.

    Cut the wires on the switch.

    Its only 2 wires and wire them to gether put electrical tape on the wires and put back together.

    Put bucket back and turn it on. it will not stop running after the bucket is full now but it will work again.

    CLICK HERE also - this is a BUGGER to find a manual for!! :D

    Check through the links to manuals above and see if your other questions are answered.

My Everstar mpm-08cr-bb4 stopped working and dislays P1

The P1 code means the lower water bowl is full.
Put a pan under it an pull the lower plug (some 10" below the upper drain plug that I hope you have a hose attached to.

probably, the p1 signals that the water pan is either full or not sitting properly. There is a small lever that it pushes when the tray is pushed in. It is a switch that might have pushed out of its housing. Mine had and I had to dissasemble the unit to get the switch back in place, then it worked fine. Good luck. Dean
