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

Ice on bottom of freezer whirlpool gold not even 2 years old..


There should not be any water in the freezer compartment other thatn in the ice maker. Closely look for the source of the leak - probably need to tighten a fitting.

Whirlpool ice maker not working


Ice makers are some of the most worked part of a refrigerator and have about a five year lifespan. There are just too many things that can go wrong that can stop the ice making process. To explain the process of a Whirlpool ice maker I am going to post a Whirlpool Ice Maker Troubling pdf and a short YouTube Icemaker Repair toutorial. If you have any questions I will be here to assist you, Thanks Sea Breeze

Water on the floor under the freezer side of unit


It happens to all those old refrigerators. There is a shield separating the drip container and freezer through a small hole. Check if it is blocked. This won't do much of the work and may not be stopped even if you do something. If you can, have a new refrigerator.

Bosch Evolution B20CS50SNS about two years old. No ice is dispensed. Looked inside and tray is frozen over solid. Also looks like water has overflowed and frozen down in bin. Could not figure out how to...


I've had lots of problems with my Bosch refrigerator ice maker. The ice tray has a tab on the back corner that twists the tray when it cycle to empty the ice. That tab broke off and when I looked into replacing the ice tray the authorized Bosch dealer said the tray is only sold with the complete ice maker unit. Sells for about $160. I have a hard time spending $160 for another complete ice maker when I only need a $10 replacement ice tray. This ice maker is sub-par for an appliance name brand like Bosch.

Uline clr2060 produces little ice


First thing is to remove the water from the trough. Pull out the grey standpipe in the back of water trough. Then see if the grid has a good frost pattern.If the frost pattern is NOT even then you need a service call to check the sealed system. If you do have a frost pattern check to see if the water is splashing over or make sure the drain is in the bin drain hole.If water is getting in the bin then the ice can melt as fast as it makes it.Make sure your cleaning with U-line cleaner.

ICE CUBE MAKER SMELLY ICE CUBES


your model will have a filter for it. it is located usually on the fridge side torwarss the top back of the fridge. it sounds like you need to replace the filter. it needs to be replaced every 4 monthes or so to keep the water clean. also you may put some water in a cup from the tap/faucet and make sure it is not the water it's self. if it is you may want to think about also having a water filtration system installed in your home.

10 yr old Frigidaire ice maker stopped making ice


try forcing the cycle by manually triggering the cycle a few times. Sometimes you can detach the trip arm or turn the tray by hand by disconnecting it from the gear. There may have been a switch bumped to turn it off or the switch somehow jammed. Maybe check for freeze-up. If there is water in it, it's going somewhere.

Whirlpool refrigerator w/ top freeezer


It has a plugged defrost drain. You may need to defrost for 24 hours with unit unplugged and doors open. UNPLUG FIRST!! f still leaks, you need to remove floor of freezer, then the back wall of freezer. Remove ice. At center rear under coils is the drain hole that is plugged up. Use hair dryer to melt ice. Pour hot water in this area to uncover drain. With hot water in area, you can put a 1/4 diam. hose or copper pipe in drain and blow into it while pressing down. It will slowly go through ice, clearing drain.
