Everstar MPK10CR-1 water not draining into receptacle

I have had my unit for 2 years and it has been fine. Recently it will run for about 10 minutes, flash P2- "receptacle full" and shut down- there is no water in the receptacle at all and I can hear water dripping inside the unit. I do not have the hoses hooked up for external draining (garden hose into floor drain option)/dehumidifying and I never had used that feature in the past as I understand from the manual it is not necessary. If I unplug that stopper- water gushes out. I am going to try to hook up that hose line and route it back into the removable receptacle but how can I actually FIX it?

There is probably alot more humidity in your area this year than in the past. these units will the the condenstion water to help cool themselves by splashing it onto the condensing coil. the unit is apparently making more condesation then it can use os the extra goes into the collection pan. the FIX is hook up the drain hose.

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.

I have an Everstar portable A/C unit that I purchased from Home Depoy 2 months ago. It works fine but it has begun to stink. How do I stop the odor?


There is water(condensation) that has built up in the unit and is stinking due to the water is growing mildew. Is the air conditioner condensation line plugged? If this is a window unit also make sure that it is level or not all the water will drain out and cause this odor. The odor should diminish after the water has completely dried out.

2 12/2AWG = 1 10/3AWG


yes, with a double run of 12-2w/ground you'll end up with 2pairs of 12 for your 2 hot phases(you will need to mark one pair red to substantiate the 2 different phases) and each 12 gauge wire will carry 20 amp each alone, then you'll have 2 pairs of 12 with white insulation white for neutral is fine but the other pair for the safety ground will need to be marked or painted green where ever visible per N.E.C. i.e. main panel or dryer receptacle or hardwired into the unit itself,use 10-3w/ground its cheaper in the long run and you dont have to run a doubleheader

Does the unit suppose to retain the water?


No. The unit is not supposed to retain water. By product of a/c or
refridgeration is water due to air being cooled below dew point of air.
(Check your uninsulated cold water pipes on a hot, humid day. They
are usually sweating.) The tubing should be routed to drain or outdoors.

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.

I have an everstar mpk-10cr and it leaks water out


This cap must be in place in all coolers I have seen. Frequently there is a gasket that is identical to the type used on a common garden hose. It needs to be clean and free of cracks. They only cost pennies. I don't understand what you mean by "I plugged it up but water did not go into the normal receptacle."

I will assume you mean that this is a manually filled unit and not attached to a water source. If that is the case give me more details on what you mean.

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!
