Question about DeLonghi Pinguino PACL90 Portable Air Conditioner
The compressor turns on for a short time blowing cold air just fine, then shuts of and fan just blows warm air out the front for 7-8 minutes before the cycle repeats. Thermostat set on 64 degrees, ambient room temp 85 degrees. The unit is 4 days old and has worked fine up until today.
No doubt it's a 4 days old unit, still it's an electronic item and the defect might be a manufacturing one.
There might be many reasons, Few of them would be :-
1. Settings - Few of these have settings that would allow them to either Turn off after some time or at certain temperature. Check the manual offered with it. Try to plug off. Wait for few minutes and again plug in.
2. It might be the faulty fan, which forced the compressor to shut off.
3. More likely, it's either defective Thermostat or Compressor.
If under warranty, Give them a call and replace it.
If not, unfortunately, you might need to spend many bucks to repair, if it being a faulty thermostat or compressor.
Remember as i said - It might be a manufacturing defect.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
