How do you drain water from a LP1010snr air conditioner?

I plugged in my air conditioner and the code P2 keeps flashing and no air is coming out. I looked up P2 and it means it water detection and I'm suppose to drain out the water. How do I do that? Where is the water?

P2 means the water collection tank is full and needs to be drained. You have to pull the drain plug at the bottom of the unit and drain the water.
Drain the water (small amount actually) in the shower. Note: There is a cap towards the bottom of the unit that you will need to unscrew, then pull out the rubber plug. Fired up the unit after the water drain ... it worked fine.

Leave it alone. DO NOT attempt to create a drain. As long as a window A/C unit is installed properly, (angled slightly down toward the rear) it will drain excess water over the rear lower lip of the unit should it get that high. Many models use some of the collected water/condensation. It gets lifted up by the fan blades to cool the coil.

If the drip line is raised too high, sometimes the level inside will exceed the trip-point for the pan-level.

Try lowering the drip line so the water runs 'downhill' the whole way. If it still occurs, the sensor in the pan may be stuck.

The P2 Code you're getting is for a system failure. More than likely a sensor has failed In which case, you should contact LG's Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, as it "may" be covered under Warranty.

Unit flashes code "P2". Can you tell me what this means?


Can you tell us what brand of unit? And a model# & serial# would help too. Most units that can give an error code have a "self diagnostics". P2 is an error code but without brand and m# there's no way to look it up

Hi I HAVE A DIMPLEX AIR-CON It was already here when I moved into this house but lately after it been for on about 5 mins it stops and it display a code of P2. I dont know how to get hold of a manual...


If your model is a portable AC unit, the P2 indicates that water needs to be drained from the tank.
Turn the unit OFF and unplug it, before draining the water from the lower tank into a shallow sided pan capable of holding at least 1 quart of water. Once it has completely drained, reinsert the drain plug, plug the unit in and turn it ON. The P2 Error Code should have disappeared. If not, press the ON/OFF button twice.

I hope this helped you.

I purchased and LG Model# LP1010SNR on 8-3-10 at Home Depot. It was a floor model and did not come with an owners manual. It has a digital display screen. It is intended to run for several hours at a time...


What happens on this unit is it will suddenly stop followed by a series of chimes. You can reset the unit, but it will end with the same set of chimes. My unit display had a P2 code. As mentioned above, I drained the water (small amount actually) in the shower. Note: There is a cap towards tha bottom of the unit that you will need to unscrew, then pull out the rubber plug. Fired up the unit after the water drain ... it worked fine. If they can make a GI Joe talk ... why can this unit simply say ... "Please Drain". P2 is so intuitive.

My unit displays P2 mode flashes red wont turn.....


P2 error indicates that the spill reservoir in the base of the unit is full.
Solution:
Move the unit to a location that is suitable for draining water from the unit. Remove the plug in the lower center of the back of the unit and allow the water to completely drain (Remember to replace plug.)
Remember...this is not the water tank on the side. This is the water than can collect in the bottom of the unit. Take it outside and drain it

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.
