    Unit was working fine....turned it off and now when I turn it on,....just get the P1 error message. There is no water anywhere in the unit..no buttons seem to be working. Cleaned the filter...now what? Would greatly appreciate some help.

  • Michael Poreda Jul 07, 2008

    Usually, when I turn it on, it says "P2" and blows air. Now it says "P1" and does not.

  • Michael Poreda Jul 07, 2008

    My everstar portable A/C used to say "P2" and began blowing cold air when I turned it on. Now it says "P1" and does not blow any air.

    what are the two hoses in the back for. I just bought one and no insturctions. do you need to put water in it? where?

  • blair1058 Jul 08, 2008

    Yes! I have the same problem. No air and "P 1" on the display.

  • friscon1 Jul 15, 2008

    I have exactly the same problem. Before it was working very well and all of a sudden the "P1" shows up and the A/C doesn't work anymore...

  • friscon1 Jul 15, 2008

    OK, I had the same problem.. "P1" message. I dumped almost all the water and turned it back on. IT WORKS now... I hope this 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.

    Just tried it. I was thinking you had to hold down two buttons. Just turbo.

Press and hold the turbo button as you restore the power. It will start making noises as it runs through some tests. It will probably then give you a more specific error message. In many cases it is an excess of water in the drain pan.

  • Don Berry Jun 30, 2008

    I believe that this may be the error to warn you that the drain pan is full of water. Try dumping the pan.

I tried emptying the unit of water. The water can be drained through the tube in the back. Take the stopper out of the tube, then drain it into a bucket. I did that, then turned it back on and pressed turbo for a few seconds. Eventually, the "water indicator" light started blinking. I then had to drain it again, and about another gallon of water came out. After that, the unit started blowing cold air again.

Not sure, but after I drain the unit, remove the black plug located at the bottom on the back of the unit, the P1 & P2 error code is gone.....now unit is working fine.......

Press and hold the turbo button while plugging in the unit. The AC will cycle through a few tests and mine showed that it had excess water. I have long vinyl tubing so the unit could drain outside the window but it thought whenever it would start or stop there was excess water (thus stopping the flow). I drained the excess water out of the line and voila

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.
