Question about Danby DPAC8020 Air Conditioner
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.

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.
