SOURCE: Unit will not return to

The unit may need to be reset. In which case, turn the Master ON/OFF switch to OFF. Unplug the unit for 10 to 12 minutes. Plug it back in, turn the unit ON and set your controls for the humidity you want to remove. This should resent the controls for you.

Hope this helps you solve the problem. Please let me know.

SOURCE: P1 error code

Take out your filter and clean it, if its dirty your machine can frost up due to the lack of air flow and will not work correctly. Once you clean it, it should be fine.

Here is a link to the Owners Manual for the model number you listed. However, it does not have a LCD display on the Control Panel, which would show the Error Code P1. This is a Kitchen Aid brand that was manufactured by Whirlpool with the AD40USL5 Model Number. This came directly from Whirlpool's website. Hope it helps you in some way.

Spt 65 pint error code p1


According to the manual, this code, P1, means that it is in a defrost cycle. I now have the problem that my unit is in the P1 mode as often as it is in the dehumidification mode.

Unit will not return to normal operation. Code P1 indicates the unit is in defrost. No frost present on the unit.

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....

What does P1 mean on display?


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

I hope that helps.

My model is DDR4009EE, after it run for a while, the display changed from RH to "P1",what does "P1" mean?


My Danby DDR657EE shows P1 periodically also. So, I called Danby.

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

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.

I heard that the code P1 meant defrosting mode, and it will restart normally after it is done defrosting.

Control panel


Just found an owners manual for the sunbeam version - p1 = defrosting. It will restart after it defrosts.
