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.

The owner's manual should have a trouble shooting section and the codes should be listed there. I looked online but found nothing for support on the unit. There may also be a sticker inside one of the panels with the trouble codes listed. If you can't find anything, get back to me with everything that is written on the manufacturer's tag on the back.

On the MPK-10CR, this code shows up (for me) when either the bucket for evaporation collection isn't in the compartment, or it isn't seated properly. Try re-seating it a few times until you hear the A/C kick in.

I received this AC unit second hand, so I have no manual and cannot find one online.
Where can I find this drain or internal bucket to empty? I know the back has the air filter and there's a door that leads to the plug. I had the vent tub attached and connected to my window.

I have P1 flashing and can't find this plug! I'll happily put it in my Bathtub and empty it - if only I can figure out what I pull to empty.

Thank you!

There is a little plastic sensor with a small thin metal piece in the middle, located just behind where the pull out bucket rest when pushed in all the way. The metal piece has to rest on the back wall for the AC to kick on. We duct taped the metal part to the back wall, the AC kicked right on.

I know that this code means that you need to force-drain the water out of it using the small tube in the back. Put the tube in a empty gallon jug. Then you push two of the buttons on the top panel at the same time and hold them down. For the life of my I'm having a hard time figuring out which ones! Right now I'm stuck on P1. If you keep trying them (as I will) you'll figure it out.

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.

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.

I have a manual and it only talks about the error, P1, when the water container is for. Says nothing about P2. The unit will just completely shut off and then the red light is flashing and P2 appears in the window.

The filter that allows the water to get to the pump is clogged. Since the pump can't pump the water into the drain bucket, it fills the bottom pan up, the unit shuts down, and the P2 error code is then displayed. Posted on Jun 29, 2011

    oyalajan254 Jun 30, 2011
    Where is the filter that is full that is not allowing the water to drain into the drain bucket, and is it something that can be cleaned? w_benjamin Jun 30, 2011
    It should be near the pump that pumps the water up to the drain bucket. Each model is different, on my Everstar it was located under the housing for the drain bucket. The back and front of the unit needed to be removed, then the housing for the drain bucket needed to be removed. Not that hard, but a lot of screws. Take it out, then clean it with some dish washing detergent.

Check the back of the manual that came with it. I find two things for a P1 Error.

Midea AC "R" Series Error Display = P1
Error Code Definition = Over voltage or too under voltage protection

On a portable unit
P1 or H8 - Water reservoir is full.

Everstar mpk 10 cr 1 manual, have an error code of P-1


It means that the little drawer for the water on the side is full of water or that it is not closed completly. In the water drawer there is a switch that makes it turn off the AC if it is running ,then it will give you a P1 code.

Make sure the water drawer is empty of water then. put the drawer back in carefully and gently, the switch that is built into the drawer will make contacts and your problem should go away. you might have to unplug the unit from the wall for it to clear the problem after doing the above steps.

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.

Everstar portable ac unit displaying error message P1. The unit turned itself off and will not come back on. It had no symptoms of not working well before turning off.


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!

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
