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 !

U need to empty the internal bucket, its full of water.

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.

On the MPK-10CR, this code shows up (for me) when either the bucket for evaporation collection isn't in the compartment, or it isn't seated properly. Try re-seating it a few times until you hear the A/C kick in.

You can get the manual on the link below if you need it.


Good luck

Try going to the Danby website. They have owners manuals for many items that have been discontinued. Check to make sure you have the right model number as there is a white printed tag that they use as well as the one printed on the metal back. Sometimes they aren't the same. (Why, I don't know.) Otherwise, Google the number.

The best place to start is the manufacturer, Danby. For parts not covered under warranty call
800-496-6049. In your unit is still under warranty call 800-263-2629.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Just got one of these used, and also got the P1 error. Took the case off (which just involved a lot of Phillips head screwdriver turning), and found a sensor switch just to the left of the drain box inside the case. If I press on the sensor switch, the P1 error goes away, but then I get a blinking dot on the LCD display. Pressed the power button after that (while still holding the sensor switch) and it started working again. It looks like it was super-glued either originally or by a previous owner. Just needed to be re-positioned towards the top left corner where the drain pan sits. Just be careful when removing the case to not disconnect any of the wires going to the LCD display.
