Question about DeLonghi Pinguino PAC-700T Air Conditioner

2 Answers

Unit will not blow cold air after starting up for first time this season

Unit will not blow cold air....constant 72 degrees air whether set on "Fresh Zone" or Cooling". I have tried resetting the red reset button on right side of front panel..not sure if the button is working because it doesn't "click" or stay in when I push it in. Should it? When the unit cycles to "Cooling" from "FreshZone" about three minutes after I switch to "Cooling", I can hear what sounds like the compressor or something else "kicking in" but the temperature of the discharging air doesn't change..always 72 degrees. This problem occurs whether or not I have the water tank in or out of the unit. Help?

    useless answer...I have one other pinguino unit that ejects air at 50 degrees until the room is cooled to about 75 degrees.My other unit, and this one, used to work fine the last time I used it in May. You obviously have no idea what you are talking about. This reply was useless. I had pretty well narrowed it down to what may be a faulty red reset button..you never addressed that.I do not want to pay for this useless "advice". I am NOT a school child and you gave a school child answer.Sorry to be so harsh, but please give value to subscribers...not a bunch of inane bs.

You may need to remove the rear cover to examine what is and is not running. once you remove the back, start up the unit on a workbench. see if the fan is running and the compressor has kicked in. look at the larger or two tubes coming out of the compressor. if it is cooling a small layer of frost or condensation will appear on this " suction" line. if this tubing and the other one are approx the same temperature, then there is a freon leak in the system. Only an EPA certified technician can fill your unit. I am not familiar with that RED button but it mat be a reset of some sort. With the back removed see how it is connected in the wiring circuit. if you have the wiring diagram, please send it to me under my regular email address and I'll walk you through the troubleshooting procedure.

That's because this unit is only designed to cool a room to approximately 75 degrees. http://www.fixya.com/support/p114531-delonghi_pinguino_pac_700t_air/manual-1811/page-2 It's not supposed to make the room cold, just comfortably cool. It automatically switches off of Cooling when it achieves this. If you want it cooler, you'll have to get a traditional air conditioner unit (like a window unit).

I have a 2000 pontiac grand prix with a digital climate control system. The heat quit working, it doesn't blow out any heat. Now that it is warm outside the air stopped blowing out any air. The digital temperature on the climate control is not correct. When it states that it is below 30 degrees on the ext and it is warm outside the air wont be cold. Once it starts going above 30 degrees the air gets colder. Today the blower stop working all together. Was told it maybe the climate control unit was bad. You can hear the door opening/shutting when you switch the temp from cold to hot. But there was no heat blowing out whatsoever in the winter time. Could you please give me your opinion on whether or not it is the climate control unit or something else?

The unit keeps freezing up solid even on energysaver


Change or clean the filter and clean both coils, no air flow or reduced air flow, the coil will freeze. It will also freeze if its set to cold 72 min. setting. Example if your room temp is 72 degrees, than the air will be 52, and the coil temp is 32 degrees, any moisture will freeze. Hope this helps

We have had this unit for 3 years. We have had it serviced with freon and cleaned each year. The problem is that the air blows out of the vents but it is not cold. Well, for example, it was only 78 outside...


Hello, it is possible that the unit may be undersized for you home and not being able to keep up with the indoor heat load. The only way to determine thia have a hvac contractor do a cooling load calculation on your home. I have seen many units undersized that cause this problem.

Amcor 10,000BTU set at 64 degrees - - temperature of air coming out of unit is 72 degrees. In one and half hour set at 64 degrees the room temp only went from 90 degrees to 84 degrees. Recommendations?...


I am not sure, i have a similiar unit that is brand new, seems like a faulty mechanism from the maker, it starts cold for about 2-3 minutes and then shuts down condenser and blows hot air repeating this cycle. I don't believe it ias a recharge, just a faulty machine

My question is about the blow heater built into my storage heater how long should th heater run constantly


If you have your T-stat set at 70 degrees,the unit should run until it gets to 68 to 72 degrees, or until the T-stat is satisfied.

Fan Coil Unit is Cycling on and off. But the room is still hot.


Check electrical connection at the T'stat and the indoor blower . Sounds like a loose connection.

AC blown warm air


This one is a difficult one to say. You could have a bad ac unit on the cars engine. Also when it goes back to 72 degrees your car is just displaying the temperature inside the car one of the features of a digital adjustments on these types of cars. Also you could have a leak and therefore not getting the cold air you wanted.
