Danby Heating & Cooling - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

Hi There,
I would like to help you with this but I need some more information.
Is the display showing any error codes?
Is there a red light blinking?

From what I have learned from a technician, with the weather being so hot and humid in most areas it is likely that the water bucket is full.

If this is not the case, please either respond to the questions above and I will look into this further or you can contact our Customer Service department at 1-800-26 Danby for assistance.

p2 means the bottom pan is full, you need to drain the bottom, small valve on the back bottom in the middle

Ok I found a temporary solution. I opened up the unit (yes there are a lot of screws) I checked the float switches and they worked and even unplugging the water level wire connection to the main board did not get rid of the red flashing light. But if you unplugged the connection from the front panel to the main board but leave the infrared remote still plugged in the main lights and control are not on but you can still work the unit by remote. When in this configuration the compressor will come on and the unit will cool. So I think that part of the problem is on the front panel circuit board or maybe somewhere on the main board. But physically the compressor/relay/ switches work. A short term solution until I can get a new board.

You possibly might have a bad switch or have a dirty ac unit.Try 1st turning off the unit and cleaning the inside ...

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 !

Your internal tank might be full of the condensed water. You may need to drain it
