The P1 code means the lower water bowl is full.
Put a pan under it an pull the lower plug (some 10" below the upper drain plug that I hope you have a hose attached to.

Same here with red light showing pan full.
False reading.
Take out pan and stick hand in where tha pan is and you will feel a little wire. Just touch it gently to fool the machine that the pan is empty. No you won't get electrocuted.
Did the trick for me. Put pan back in.
Don't need to be a rocket scientist to fool the stupid sensor.

The directions have the steps to take when a "P1" error is flashing.

1) Remove the plug (the upper black plug not the lower) and attach the included drain hose.
2) Put a bucket under the hose.
3) Press the TURBO button for MORE THAN THREE SECONDS. The WATER INDICATOR will begin flashing telling the user that the FORCED WATER DRAINAGE feature is activated. You will even hear a little whirring noise.
4) Wait until the WATER INDICATOR stops flashing and no more water is flowing out of the drainage tube.
5) After the water is finished flowing, make sure that you FASTEN the DRAIN PLUG. Of course, failure to do this will flood the area.
6) The unit should now work.

You can also move the unit somewhere that you can remove the plug and let the water flow freely (you do not need to have it plugged in for this method) and once the water is finished, replace the plug and fire it up. It should then work correctly. It's also mentioned that the water should be drained quite often to prevent corrosion. I do it every few months and of course when winter approaches.

I like this air conditioner and have had really nice luck with it. A little loud but who cares. That's why there are SUBTITLES on the television.

Hope this helped.

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.

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 MPM 08CR BB4 P1 light is on and unit wont start. I emptied the bucket, I drained the hose inside bucket area and put back where it wouldnt be in the way of the bucket, I unplugged and plugged back...


"The black plate with floater in the bucket" is what signals that the bucket is full of water. So if it isn't in the right place then you will get "P1" (Problem 1 which means bucket is full). The "black plate" needs to flop down inside the bucket for it to register as empty. When the bucket fills the floater makes the plate go to the top and it shuts off the unit.

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 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
