SOURCE: the P1 light is on

P1 means the evaporator coils are freezing up.The P1 error is related to low airflow.This can be due to clogged or dirty filter.Take the filter out and clean it, if its dirty the dehumidifier can frost up due to the lack of air flow and will not work correctly.In some cases if the filter is too old then it has to be replaced.This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

What is wrong with a Westpointe dehumidifier when it stops removing water and displays P1? It will run this way for hours and kick in and work briefly once in a while on continuous.


Usually the P1 error indicates that dehumidifier needs to be defrosted. The unit has detected ice build-up on the condenser coils.

Unplug the dehumidifier for several hours. Then plug it back in. If the problem recurs, check that the fan that blows air across the coils is working properly. Make sure that the room is not colder than the operating range of the dehumidifier. If the problems continues to occur, you may have a refrigerant leak in the system. That will require a service call to repair the dehumidifier.

If the unit is under warranty, contact Westpointe. The manual I have for a Westpointe 65 PT dehumidifier, https://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/content/pdfs/136333-1.pdf, indicates the unit is covered through year 5 after purchase for a refrigerant system. For Warranty service, the contact point is Midea Consumer Service at 1-866-646-4332. If the unit is not under warranty, consider whether to replace the dehumidifier.

I hope this helps.

What is the P1 code on my Dayton Dehumidifier 5eaj9 mean?


Empty the bucket. Reseat the bucket carefully or the code will not reset. This is the only documented action for code P1.

What does P1 mean


t appears to mean "defrosting." In other words, the condenser coils have gotten too cold and are icing up..


The filter is probably full, or the thermostat is faulty. Open it up and clean the filter first.

Spt 65 pint error code p1


According to the manual, this code, P1, means that it is in a defrost cycle. I now have the problem that my unit is in the P1 mode as often as it is in the dehumidification mode.

Code on Top


I have another of their dehumidifiers, the MDF1-30AE. The first time the P1 came on, the unit stopped, because the filter needed cleaning. Recently P1 came on but the unit didn't turn off, and I had already cleaned the filter, so I phoned Midea customer service at 1-866-646-4332. The man told me P1 means it's in defrost mode and said to just leave it on and the P1 will eventually go away. It's been a while though....

My model is DDR4009EE, after it run for a while, the display changed from RH to "P1",what does "P1" mean?


My Danby DDR657EE shows P1 periodically also. So, I called Danby.

Danby's Consumer Help Line (1-800-263-2629) is always busy. So, I called their General number: 419-425-8627. The receptionist transferred my call to their Service dept. My call was answered in 2 minutes.

The Service Rep. described the following code for my dehumidifier model (DDR657EE):
P1 = Defrosting: the unit will go into Defrost mode periodically to ensure that the parts are working at the right operating temperature. It should be in Defrost (P1) mode for only a brief period of time. If the unit is in Defrost (P1) mode continuously for a couple of hours (or more), then you should call Danby Service for further assistance.

He had no documentation of a P2 code for my model.

He also described other General Codes (applicable to most Danby Dehumidifier/Humidifier models):
E1 = Not enough water
E2 = Not draining
E3 = Water temperature too cool
E4 = Overflow Switch activated
E6 / E7 = Problem with Temperature Sensor

So, if you see P1 periodically (for brief periods), then it would be normal.

Also, here is a link to Danby's FAQ page for Dehumidifiers (which answers some common questions):

I hope that helps.

Just found an owners manual for the sunbeam version - p1 = defrosting. It will restart after it defrosts.
