Question about DeLonghi Pinguino PAC-02 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Pinguino PAC 60, I bought this recently from an auction. When powered on , switched to * and temperature control fully anticlockiwse, the temperature LED flickers at a fast pace. After a few minutes the exhaust fan kicks in and blows warm air out of the hose but the compressor never starts and no cold air is blown out the front (nothing comes out the front). I have cleaned all filters, drained the rear hose, filled the tank to no avail, any clues, hints??? Thank you Sam

Filled what tank? if the compressor never comes on it could be because of no or low freon levels or bad start components to the compressor or a bad capacitor to the compressor or fan motor. you may need to call a company to take a look at it, i am a technician myself so please just get a couple different opinions so you do not get ripped off.

    Hi Jennifer, thank you for your assistance. The tank filled was the 10 Litre water tank that mounts behind the front cover. I saw the unit work (albeit briefly) before purchase, the compressor did spin up and blow cool air for the minute or so the unit ran. I am a (60 year old) technician myself though my forte was in telecommunications (electromechanical) and later with computers, I have no experience with air con units but am quite willing to check out the problem here if possible. Time to pull the covers off me thinks, is it possible to find a schematic diagram online?

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: PAC L90 water tank capacity

when tank is full you will get the letters FE will signal a FULL TANK
(The tank is full)

You have it setup to constantly drain GOOD.
Should you should not plug the drain hoses to get colder air.
Do let it drain . It is more convenient!
If the unit is the proper BTU for the square footage of the area to be cooled it will be cold!
If the tank gets full you will not get cool air?


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

SOURCE: DeLonghi Pinguino PAC-290 - Compressor Won't Come On

Have you tried to descale the unit? I have this unit and it requires descaling often due to the hardness of the water you are using in said unit.

I just bought a used DeLonghi Pinguino PAC 02. It seems to cool ok but the exhaust hose gets very warm. Is that normal?


Yes, that is normal. It's exhausting the heat from the compressor out the window.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

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.

Delonghi PAc 60 it just stopped 12 months later with a warning light


Reset the GFIC if it has it.
Bypass it if you know how. they go bad often.
or open the unit and use an ac meter an make sure it is getting power at least , trace the ac cable to the board. and test.
Careful it may hurt bad.
