P1 usually refers to evaporator pan full with water. If you drain it out it will work fine. If you need to reset it just unplug the power cord for two minutes.

. What does P1 on the LED screen mean?


P1 indicates that the air intake filter needs to be removed and cleaned. Turn the unit OFF and Unplug it from the wall, before removing the filter. If you wash the filter in warm soapy water (dish washing liquid is fine), be sure it's thoroughly rinsed and dried, before reinstalling it. Never operate the dehumidifier without the filter installed. Once the filter has dried, reinstall it. Plug the unit back in and Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. If necessary, you can reset the settings, you originally had the unit set on.

Hope this helped you.

My true freezer temperature gage has a P1 flashing code


If unit keeps proper temp. then I would think that either the thermometer sensing probe may have been damaged during the repair process or the thermometer itself has failed.

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....

Leak out of the from of the ice machine - flashing p1


P1 means a problem with your drain. Most of the time its a kink in the line. Double check your drain line or it could even be a bad drain pump.

P1 error


Your question needs to be answered in 3 parts:

1) As per the manual for my Danby Dehumidifier (Model DDR657EE), the unit may not turn on immediately when powered On (it may take a several minutes). So, generally, it would be normal in your case.

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

3) Since your unit keeps running (continuously) and there is no water in the bucket, then you should call Danby ServiceI for additional assistance - it seems defective for this reason.

I hope that helps.

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.
