    Thanks!  I remembered that P1 meant empty the water, but not the part about pushing the Turbo button.  I can now continue to survive this heatwave thanks to you guys!

That was my EXACT problem. At 2am, while my bunnies were about to overheat b/c the AC had shut off, you saved us! The drain wasn't draining, and I emptied the machine, pressed turbo, and poof. It works. Thank YOU!!!!

Well, sorry the response is so late but here goes. I just went through the same problem a few days ago. Press and hold the turbo button while plugging in the unit. The AC will cycle through a few tests and mine showed that it had excess water. I have long vinyl tubing so the unit could drain outside the window but it thought whenever it would start or stop there was excess water (thus stopping the flow). I drained the excess water out of the line and voila. I hope this helped you.

SOURCE: everstar portable ac unit displaying error message P1

According to my Everstar manual, P-1 is a drainage problem.
EverStar owners manual pg. 16 -

1. Release the drain hose from the ruber clip and pull out the rubber plug, let the drain hose slant down to a water container.

2. Press the TURBO button on the unit control panel for more than 3 seconds and the WATER INDICATOR light begins flashing. It indicates the forced water drainage feature is activated.

3. Waiting until the WATER INDICATOR light stops flashing and there is no water flow.

4. After the water has drained, remember to secure the drain hose and plug in the upright position and clip it to the unit.

The unit will return to normal operation.

....I had to do this and it worked - Good luck!

SOURCE: What is the P1 error code on an Everstar portable

U need to empty the internal bucket, its full of water.

I have this air conditioner. What I did was get a long plastic tube from home depot and connect it to the middle back drain. I then put the plastic tube outside my window, or if u have a drain somewhere put it in there or put the end into a big bucket. Let gravity do its job. I did not connect the tube to the internal bucket b/c I would have to empty it too often. The air conditioner is on top of a table so that water will flow down the tube and out the window.

Make sure the water container is clicked in properly. I found this to display the P1 and flashing red light if the floater switch is not properly engaged.

Make sure the level arm is also making good contct with the water bucket when you insert it. You can awlas pull the level towards you to adjust for better contact.

Need owners manual for Everstar Portable AC MPM1-10CR-BB6


Needed the manual to clarify a P1 error message. Figured how to fix the error P1 on my own. there are two drains on the unit, one is always open as an overflow drip, the other at bottom of unit has a plug. I opened the plug at the bottom of the unit, drained the water, and the P1 error code cleared.

My unit has a P1 error and has stopped


Pull out the water container. Make sure the black floater switch is not stuck or impedes from working properly. If this doesn't work, need to look at replacing this

Everstar Air Conditioner


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
