SOURCE: P1 error code on LX30 Hobart

This is a bad sump temperature probe. The unit will function, but will not heat nor display the wash water temperature.

This is a very easy fix. Order Hobart part number 328994 from your nearest Hobart parts dept.

Turn off and drain the unit. Kill the power to the unit at the circuit breaker. Remove the lower front cover. Locate the screw-in temperature probe at the front of the sump. Unplug the sensor from the wiring harness, remove with a 7/16" open end wrench. Screw in the new probe, using teflon tape of the threads, snuggly. It does not need to be super tight. Plug it into the harness, reinstall the front cover, turn the breaker back on, and start up the unit.

Check that the filters are clean and check that the sensor is still in place if all is check and still gives error code then the sensor is faulty.

SOURCE: What does P1 mean

t appears to mean "defrosting." In other words, the condenser coils have gotten too cold and are icing up..

The filter is probably full, or the thermostat is faulty. Open it up and clean the filter first.

What does a P3 code mean? On a Hobart LXI high temp

P3 code refers to the probe near the airgap at the back. It is monitoring the rinse temp. P2 is the booser probe, and P1 is the wash tank. The control board will store error codes, so once changed, you can access the memory and clear it.

P1 or H8 - Water reservoir is full.
