Hoses for proper connection should have been included with your purchase. Without the hoses the set-up can not be done satisfactory. One is for fresh air supply and the other is the hot air exit hose. These are normally vented out a window. Check with the dealer where you perchased the unit from. If from a private individual contact them.

SOURCE: delonghi pac-02 a/c

I had similar problem .... on very humid days unit leaks ..... temp solution for me was to drain the unit .... inserted wire coat hanger into tube .... lots of watery gook came out.. - even tilted/tipped the unit inorder to get as much water out of it.......afterwards unit worked fine.

We are VERY SASTIFIED with the Delonghi Pinguino - bought it years ago when it first came out and it has provided years of troublefree service .... the water build up / leaking was only recently - in fact we never drained the thing until this year.

Very bad smell coming from my Samsung refrigerator


most refrigerators have a small drainage hole leading from the inside rear of the compartment to an overflow container behind the unit, pull the unit away from the wall and check if the liquid in the container has become stagnant, if so simply clean it out and run a small amount of bleach down the hole to disinfect the tube.
hope this helps.

Smelly water with water softener


Your local home depot sells a product called AFFRESH that is made for front loaders to clean mold as well as stagnant water smells from washing machines. I have also hear other techs suggest vinegar and water but personally I would much rather have the unit smelling nice and flowery smell instead of a vinegary smell. Also it is important to note your drain line should be at least 6" higher then the top of your washer if it were less then the water that is supposed to leave the machine goes back inside the machine thus giveing some a stagnant water smell or like bad eggs.If you have any further questions message me back
Thank you

How to change or clean the filter and where to download a manual


DeLonghi has the manuals for their portable air conditioners here: http://delonghiusa.com/support/product_manuals/5#table-jump . The direct link to the PAC C120 manual is http://delonghiusa.com/support/sites/default/files/product_manuals/m-PAC+C120.pdf .

Before cleaning, turn off the air conditioner. To clean the filter, pull it straight up from behind the top of the air intake (on the back of the PAC C120). Vacuum off the filter. If it is very dirty, immerse it in warm water and rinse several times. (The water should not above 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees F)) several times. Then allow the filter to air dry. Slide the filter back into the air conditioner and turn the unit back on.

I hope this helps.

Odd odor coming out of dishwasher upon opening it. Smells like rotten milk. What is the best cleaning solution?


After a dishwasher is installed the hose rarely comes to mind - unless a problem occurs and a repair person comes out to inspect the job. If the hose was installed improperly, or if it is lying in a position that does not let it drain, stagnant water will create a bad smell. Examine the hose that is probably inside the kitchen cabinet beneath the sink. If the hose is lying in the bottom of the cabinet, it is probably full of water. A film begins to form inside the hose and the odor begins to grow. The next time the dishwasher is used, the stagnant water ends up on dishes, and in the meantime it can cause a bad smell inside of the dishwasher. Hang the hose at an angle on supports in the back of the cabinet. This alone might get rid of the bad smell inside the dishwasher.

Check the Seal

A dirty dishwasher seal can be a source of a bad smell. Before deciding the dishwasher needs to be replaced, check the seal - especially at the bottom. Old food and grime builds up in these areas and can cause a particularly bad smell. Clean it with a solution of diluted bleach and hot soapy water. One teaspoon of bleach for each quart of water is sufficient to kill germs and the odors they create.

NB I decided to add a little bit of vinegar to the machine after I unloaded it. Sure it would smell pretty strong for a while but then the smell would dissipate. Voila! For two weeks now my dishes have not smelled whatsoever.

Look for where the condensation drains, it could be stopped up. If it drains into a pan, check it for mold & mildew. Even if it is a wet type to cool the compressor, drainage still needs to happen. Some times it can get moldy if the water sits.

Have had a bad odor in refrigerator for approx. a month. have cleaned out everything, but odor will not go away. Help!!


Same problem as sfpoe - since before Thanksgiving! Smells like either spoiled produce or stagnant water, but cannot find anything as the source. Our ice maker isn't hooked up, so not water should be in those tubes.

Delonghi pac w160a...''no water symbol'' stops on in airconditioning mode even though water tank is full


In the back of these units where the cord pulls out, there is usually a red reset button, try pushing that to reset the unit, also make sure the filter is clean, pulls from the top out of the unit. Make sure the coils are clean as well behind the filter.

Good Luck!
