Everstar Model MPK-10CR, What does flashing P2 mean?

I have a manual and it only talks about the error, P1, when the water container is for. Says nothing about P2. The unit will just completely shut off and then the red light is flashing and P2 appears in the window.

P2 means the bottom pan is full, you need to drain the bottom, small valve on the back bottom in the middle

The filter that allows the water to get to the pump is clogged. Since the pump can't pump the water into the drain bucket, it fills the bottom pan up, the unit shuts down, and the P2 error code is then displayed.

    Where is the filter that is full that is not allowing the water to drain into the drain bucket, and is it something that can be cleaned?

  • w_benjamin Jun 30, 2011

    It should be near the pump that pumps the water up to the drain bucket. Each model is different, on my Everstar it was located under the housing for the drain bucket. The back and front of the unit needed to be removed, then the housing for the drain bucket needed to be removed. Not that hard, but a lot of screws. Take it out, then clean it with some dish washing detergent.

Everstar mpk 10 cr 1 manual, have an error code of P-1


It means that the little drawer for the water on the side is full of water or that it is not closed completly. In the water drawer there is a switch that makes it turn off the AC if it is running ,then it will give you a P1 code.

Make sure the water drawer is empty of water then. put the drawer back in carefully and gently, the switch that is built into the drawer will make contacts and your problem should go away. you might have to unplug the unit from the wall for it to clear the problem after doing the above steps.

Also here is a link to their site, Midea the company that makes these MPK-10CR units. For the owners manuel http://www.supportuscenter.com/documents/MPK_Manual.pdf

My unit displays P2 mode flashes red wont turn.....


P2 error indicates that the spill reservoir in the base of the unit is full.
Solution:
Move the unit to a location that is suitable for draining water from the unit. Remove the plug in the lower center of the back of the unit and allow the water to completely drain (Remember to replace plug.)
Remember...this is not the water tank on the side. This is the water than can collect in the bottom of the unit. Take it outside and drain it

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.
