SOURCE: Water leaking from portable air conditioner

First, make sure the unit is level. If so, you have a blockage or kink in the drain tube. Careful inspection should reveal any blockage, & you may be able to poke it thru with a piece of coathanger wire. Don't use excessive force, any block should be easily freed.

SOURCE: i have an Everstar air conditioner model R51I9/BGCE. the air conditioner stopped and the LCD indicates "P1". please help. also the water indicator light is on, where is the water tank?

Usually means that you need to empty the water reservoir, or that the bucket is not seated properly.

SOURCE: My portable frigidaire air conditioner bucket light on

The actual bucket is located inside the machine at the bottom.  To access it, you must unscrew all of the screws and take the front panel off.  You cannot empty it from this side so it is not worth taking the machine apart.  
However, in order to empty the bucket, there is a small black plug at the bottom left hand side at the rear of the machine.  Be careful when pulling out the plug because the water will immediately drain.  
Good luck.

SOURCE: water going into carpet instead of ac water bucket

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.

It was flashing red like the water was full. I emptied the water, put the container back in and it was still flashing. I tried to shut it off, but it wouldn't shut down.


When you unplugged it you broken the circuit which is what it does when pan is full of water to get you by turn the two wires together to make it think the switch is made

P-1 code


Hello Friend, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

If you are getting an error code P1 on your Frigidaire air conditioner, normally it indicates that the bottom tray is full. Carefully remove your air conditioner to a drain location and remove the bottom drain plug and allow the water drain. Then restart your appliance and P1 symbol should disappear after you have let your appliance run. However, if the error code continues, at this point, I would recommend reaching out to a professional to proceed further. - Z

P1 code on Sylvania 12,000BTU portable AC unitl will not clear


The only thing I have been able to find as far as a P1 error code, is the water tray needs to be emptied. If thats emptied then it would be a issue with the float switch that senses the water.

Best I can find

I am getting a code P1, what does it mean?


P1 Indicates that the water collection tank is full and needs to be drained. Turn the unit OFF & unplug it before attempting to drain it.

My danby portable air conditioner won't turn on


New or used? Is is plugged in? Is there electric at the plug? Plug a light in there and make sure it works as a test. Next, check the water pan to make sure it is not full of water. There is a switch there that could be causing the problem.

I have a flashing P1 and the unit will not turn on


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.

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.
