Question about DeLonghi Pinguino PACL90 Portable Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Ice in the unit

For first time in 2 years of use (here in California we use it all year) this morning digital display said to empty water from bottom of unit which I did. I also cleaned the filter. Left house for a while with unit running and when I returned little or no air was emmiited from unit, and when I removed back cover, solid sheet of ice!  This icing up has NEVER happened with this Pinguino (I have 2 of them and it's never occurred.) 
Help!

Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

You said, Left house for a while with unit running and when I returned little or no air was emmiited from unit, and when I removed back cover, solid sheet of ice!


Sounds like you have a coolant leak or the thermostat is malfunctioning.
You need to have the freon checked first to see it is not low.
This one reason that will make it freeze up .
let me know how much freon it took.

Please remember to leave a rating before you go!
Thank you

Soleus gb-pac-08e4 h8


The unit is NOT pulling water from the air to cause this error, yes they pull moisture out of the air and over TIME fill with water. The problem is that the unit shows the H8 error even when empty. Worked for 2 months and now just keeps popping the H8 code, EVEN THOUGH IT IS EMPTY. Unfortunately sometime you find out after buying a product that it is not quality, that is the case with Soleusair. Bad company, Bad product.

I have this unit, which is unbranded with model number WAP-020EC. I have lost the instructions, and when I started it after a while water came out of a small tube at the bottom. This didn't happen...


Hole at bottom is drain - it should have a rubber plug blocking it when in use (easy to knock out if your not careful) attached images show layout and controls, hope they help._1661.jpg_1660.jpg

Water accumulation and ice buildup


There is already a hole just remove the ac unit from the window,and it`s shell,take it outside and use a water hose to clean it out,and remove anything on the inside that may stop up the drain hole.This needs to be done every year before spring or summer.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

It's two years old, and is now spitting out lots of water.


Should have a drain on the unit. Check for ports that have debris in them on the outside of the unit. Clean the debris out and the unit should drain normally.

My unit was'nt cooling the room like it use to and then this morning it was leaking water in the room


Hi, it sounds like the evaporator coil that is located on the inside as built up with ice, and has blocked most of the air flow. What can cause this is a very dirty filter, indoor coil that's iced up, and if the filter and coil are clean, make sure the indoor blower is up to speed. Turn it off and let it defrost. It will take some time. Turn it on fan only. If all is clean and motor is fine and it continues to ice, you are low on freon, and have a small leak causing it to ice up. It is probably a very small leak that may have taken a few years to leak to this point. I would make sure the filter is clean, coil indoors is clean, and blower is up to speed. If this is all good, you will need to get it charged. This unit holds less then 2 pounds of R-22.
Keep me posted on the out come. You can pull the indoor cover and see if you have ice on it. Let me know.

I have a Promac 15000 btu (4 years old), indoor unit (wall unit), model ps150cri. When I turned it on for the first time this year, some water keep on coming out from it inside the house. What might be...


You may have a blocked drain or the filters may need cleaning..

pull the filters out of unit and clean with water.

check if the drain is working you can do this by pouring water into the drain tray if the water does not drain away the drain is blocked.
