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.

Danby dehumidifier ddr4588ee ices up. Humidifier located in basement with temp around 60degrees. Unit is 1 1/2 years old.


According to your Owners Manual, the coils may start to frost at 60 degrees and the defrost sensor should turn ON and cycle periodically. However, the air temperature at the floor level in a basement, is colder than the air temperature by 5 to 8 degrees. So this may be causing the problem. In addition, if the air intake filter is dirty or clogged, the unit has to strain to keep up and will not function as it should.

If the unit is totally iced up, turn the unit Off and unplug it from the wall outlet. Allow is to thaw completely before attempting to clean the filter. You may want to put some old towels under it while it thaws. Once it's thawed, move it to a bathroom that has a shower. Plug it it in and set the humidity level at 45%. Turn the shower ON at a Medium hot temperature (enough to generate steam) and as you exit the batroom, close the door. DO NOT operate the bathroom's exhaust fan. Allow the unit to operate for 15 to 20 minutes, before returning to the bathroom. Then turn the shower OFF and check the unit for any frost and the amount of water collected in the bucket. If there is no frost on the unit and there's water in the bucket the unit is operating properly.

When you move it back to the basement, place it up off the floor on something sturdy, that can hold the weight and not be bothered by the vibration of the unit, when it's running. (ie a work bench, a counter top, etc.) Operate the unit as you normally do and monitor it for frost or icing up. And, whether or not the defrost sensor is cycling as it should. If you get no frost or just minor frost, it was the air temperature at the floor level, that was causing the problem.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

I purchased danby dehumidifier less that 1 year ago and p1 is on most of the time. What can I do?


According to your Owners Manual:

P1 is part of a normal function of your dehumidifier. When your compressor is working it will build frost on the evaporator coils. When there is enough frost on the coils the unit will go into a P1 deicing program. This deicing cycle will last anywhere from 15-45 minutes. Once complete it will automatically resume normal function. The cooler the room the more often this function will turn on.

If you think it's still staying ON to long, contact Danby Consumer Help 800-263-2629

Hope this helped you.

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.
