Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Everstar portable ac unit displaying error message P1. The unit turned itself off and will not come back on. It had no symptoms of not working well before turning off.


Answers :

According to my Everstar manual, P-1 is a drainage problem.
EverStar owners manual pg. 16 -

1. Release the drain hose from the ruber clip and pull out the rubber plug, let the drain hose slant down to a water container.

2. Press the TURBO button on the unit control panel for more than 3 seconds and the WATER INDICATOR light begins flashing. It indicates the forced water drainage feature is activated.

3. Waiting until the WATER INDICATOR light stops flashing and there is no water flow.

4. After the water has drained, remember to secure the drain hose and plug in the upright position and clip it to the unit.

The unit will return to normal operation.

....I had to do this and it worked - Good luck!

We had a brand new unit put in a couple of years back. When it was installed it worked. Once winter came, it obviously was turned off. Then the following summer, it would turn on but just blow air, would not cool at all- so the unit installers came out and repaired it. It worked through the summer, then the following summer-it wouldnt cool again-they came back out and fixed it again. Third summer in a row-it is not working again!! A friend told me this morning, on new units there is a

My unit is 4 years old. I always turn it off when I leave for work in the am and turn it back on when I get home in the pm. Last night I turned it on at 7:30pm. When I went to the front of the house about 45 minutes later, I noticed the unit outside was trying to turn on but would immediately turn off. I checked the breakers in the garage, turned them off and back on but still had the same problem. The fan inside the house is running but unit outside will not kick on. I looked for a magic

There is a switch on my 1 1/2 ton Ruud furnace/Air handler that is not working properly. The unit would not turn on, even though the thermostat was working. I took the panel off of the air handler and found that a switch had been duct taped into the on position on the unit. Apparently, the tape had shifted and the switch was no longer in proper position. when i moved the switch, two green indicator lights lit up. When i turned the unit back on, the A/C worked. Clearly, there is a problem w

My AC My Compressor keeps kicking off. I turn the unit on, the fan works. The Heat works but the compressor turns in about 60 sec. If I unplug the unit and turn it back on, it comes on but the compressor shuts off again after 60 sec. Can this be from dirt in the coils? They have some build up. Any other causes?


One might think so, YES the compressor is running till it gets hot and tripps on hi-temperature, and after it cools down awhile, the switch willcautomatically reset itself and back- & forth......Thank-you-very much! ... GE Zoneline AZ38H12DAD Split System Air Conditioner

My fan and heater work fine, but today I turned on my air conditioner for the first time this year. It did not feel like it was getting cooler so I went outside and noticed that my outside unit was not working. I went and checked the breaker and noticed it was tripped, so I turned it off and turned it back on (the breaker). Then all orf the power went off to my house. I then reset my whole breaker box and I heard what sounded like my outside unit explode. I ren over to it and it sounded lik

Unit was running and now will not turn on. Outlet checks out ok, house fuse switch has been turned off and on, unit will not come back on. Could the unit have a fuse? How do I find it?

I have an Amana Model GUC-C 90 Hi-efficiency furnace that we installed in 1992. It has a central air unit as well. On Friday we tried to turn the air on and nothing will work. I have replaced switches in the air unit in the past but this time there is no clicking, I can't turn the circulation fan on for the unit, the heater unit will not turn on. I have power at the breaker, and on the unit itself there is a on/off switch with a round screw in fuse, that fuse is good and I have power there.

AMCOR 24,000 BTU split system. Worked fine two years, then today it had no power. Checked circuit breaker, it had popped. Reset CB and went to inside unit - would not turn on or off with remote or hard button. Checked wiring with an electrical tester, and wires to outside unit hot, as well as inside unit. No flashing codes, nothing. Unit won't turn on,even with power. Is there a fuse somewhere in the inner unit or outer unit?

Our Carrier 38ckc036350 is not working - the outdoor unit was very hot to the touch and will not turn on -turned it off at the thermostat - later when the unit cooled down turned it back on via the thermostat and it would start to kick on, but then stop - no breakers were thrown. Unit will be 7 years old in the middle of July '10 and am wondering: 1. what could the problem be & 2. will any of this be under warranty?


The first thing I would check is to see the condensing coil is clean. Take a garden house and wash it thoroughly. If it is severely clogged you may need to remove the top and clean it with water pressure blowing from the inside out. This may stop the ... Carrier 38CKC036 Air Conditioner

I have a goodman gsc13 ac unit about 4 year old. When the temp gets around 90 or above outside the fan on the unit starts but the compressor does not.

My carrier air conditioning unit does not cool below 72 degrees. I was continually running to the point the outside unit connection to the house was frosted. I turned the unit off and let sit for a few hours. Turned it back on and the Thermostat seems to be working; however the unit can not cool the house below 72 when it had in the past. Am I looking at a leak or re-charge???


The unit has lost part of it's charge, and will need recharged. For that reason a leak must be found and repaired or it all will reoccur again. ... Carrier 38CKC030 Air Conditioner

Honeywell F50F 1065 electronic air cleaner. Replaced power supplies in two units, installation went well. One unit works as it should. Second unit turns on for just under a minute and then goes off. After two or three minutes unit can be turned on again but only for a minute or so and the problem continues. All wiring and switches seem to check out fine. Any thoughts or pointers you can give me?

I have a dometic ac with remote in our 2005 Keystone Zeppelin z261. We are camping in 95 degree Florida. While taking a nap, the ac remote quit working with the unit running wide open cold. I changed batteries in the remote, no change. The control panel on the unit itself showed the green light for cold, but the control did not respond. Turning off the main breaker made the unit turn off, reseting the breaker made the ac come back on. When I unplugged the modular cord connecting the control pane

Replaced the breaker, cleaned the unit turned it on, cooled the house 2 degrees then it stopped working. Turned the stat off ,pulled the 220 block waited 10 minutes, turned it back on and it is currently running. Can the relay and/or start-run cap behave in this kind of intermitent way ?

My goodman furnace (model gmp 108-3) is not working. If I turn off the unit and turn it back on the fan comes on and the little filament heats up, then the top burner will light, but it will not stay lit and none of the other burners will light. After a few tries, it turns off and doesn't come back on.


All of the burners should light. Could be a dirty flame runner. I recommend that you get a good clean and check.. Burners, flame runner, flame sensor should all be cleaned. If this does not solve your problem than the gas pressure nee ... Air Conditioners

My ac unit will not go below 77 degrees. It quit working about 1.5 weeks ago, and I had a service technican come and look at it. He replaced the capacitor and the unit started back up and would cool to 75 degrees (where I usually have it set). He checked the pressure of the unit as well and said that it was fine. However I came back from a trip and the thermostat read 77 degrees even though I have it set on 75, and the temperature will not go any lower. This is the same thing it was doing


Hi, It sounds to me like you have covered all of the basis. The evaporator coil should be clean if you keep your filter clean and the condensation is showing that it is cooling properly. Normally, when the temperature increases outside, you will loos ... Air Conditioners

We had a terrible thunderstorm and I saw a flash of light near our transformer. All the lights in our house dimmed. Since this had happened before and we damaged our capacitor, I immediately turned the AC unit off(Amana Prestige II). When the power stabilized I turned the unit back on but the compressor will not come on. I tried turning the breakers off and on but it did not work.
