I was having the same problem as the OP, thanks everyone who replied to this! I didn't know what to do when on a 40°C day my AC turned off and P1 came on the display, I just needed to empty the water ! It's actually a pretty good safety feature !

There is a switch inside the bottom of unit that shuts it off when it is full of water. Has to go in just right to be able to work. Russ

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.

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

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.

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.
