UNIT SHUTS DOWN AS SOON AS COMPRESSOR KICKS IN

I have an Everstar MPA_08CR portable AC unit (2 years old) the fan blows and everything works fine but as soon as the AC comp kicks in the unit will shut down and the green (DRY) light will flash forever, and I cant turn the unit back on without unplugging it and plugging it right back in. The water tank is seated proper, intake is perfectly clean and there is not any restriction on the exhaust. I have tried it on several different outlets and there is not any power surge. Unit worked perfect befor I put away for the winter. Suggestions??

Hi fdisc I feel quite sure your compressor is going straight to ground you need to get someone to check the comp, for its resistance and he or she will soon let you know for sure.

I have an Everstar portable air conditioner Model MPA-08CR but when it is working for 10 minutes...it is working fine cooling the desired space but the next 10 minutes it is only working like a fan...then...


The problem may be that you don't have the temperature set low enough and the unit reaches the set temperature quickly and then only the fan runs. Try lowering the set temperature.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Portable ac blows warm air even after i cleaned filter


Make sure that the coils are all clean, Vacume cleaner with the brush attachment on the end works well.
Sounds like your fan is only working and not the Compresser that makes the unit an "air conditioner" and not a gloryfied fan.

Check and make sure that the butten is on Cold and that the small water drawer is in correctly so the shut off switch is making good contacts. Important Make sure that it is getting enough electricity at the wall plug, Because when the ac compresser 1st turns on it uses 3-5 times the power for the intial startup, not enough juice means no AC.
The fan only uses a little to blow but AC needs alot to start.
Unit should sound diffrent when AC compreser turns on compared to fan only on mode.

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
