Question about DeLonghi Pinguino PAC-290 Air Conditioner
This PAC was working fine, ran for about 12 hours, then I heard a click, the bottom red light came on (has a triangle with an exclamation point next to it), and the compressor shut off. I pressed the RESET button and the compressor came back on and the red light went out. This time it ran for about 3 hours, I heard the click again, the red light came on again, and the compressor shut off again. I pressed the RESET button again, but the red light stayed on and no compressor. I drained some water (not sure if I emptied all of it), but the light would not go off, and still no compressor. The unit still powers on, green and red light lit, and the fan blows air, but the compressor will not come on. BTW, I couldn't find the plastic hose that came with it, so I used some flex aluminum dryer hose to exhaust the air (got very hot).
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.

Read instructions and see if it says anything about cleaning or filters. A.C units **** air in and there is a filter that probably needs cleaned.Also,while cooling, the vent to the outside should put out warm air. Also, if it is less than a year old, contact the manufacturer and they should help you out. Good luck.
