    So it has been running now for maybe 2 hours, water coming out from underneath the bottom of the unit, same issue as last year when we tried to use it. any suggestions? Is something not hooked up correctly?

  • janethuffste May 30, 2010

    OK... so that just means I need to figure out how to take the panels off, not as simple as I thought it would be, but I will continue to try till I get the panels off , then see if I can find what needs to be plugged. thanks for your advice!

This system is set up to drain out of the back bottom all by itself, if it is not draining then simply tilt it back a little bit more so that the front is higher then the back and everything will drain just fine.

    Taking the covers off is a pain, but as long as you have all the screws out it should slide back just a little then lift up.

PAC CT-90 Air conditioner My CT90 is leaking

When you air condition, you essentially remove heat from the "inside air" and transfer it to the "outside air". from a google search this thing is sort of like a window air conditioner, but the hot air is sent outside via a vent hose, so the unit can be located away from the window. Any time you cool air, it holds less water, so depending on the humidity, there will be condensate formed, the question is, how is it dealt with. In window air conditioners, you see it dripping from the back side when it is running. For your unit, is it unclear how the condensate is being removed; maybe hot air going outside is directed across where the condensate collects and it is assumed it will evaporate and be vented outside as vapor? First, check and see if the unit is still under warrantee, if so, contact them and see how to get it fixed (if you mess with it, it might void the warrantee). If it has expired or the company is out of business, etc, you can try opening it up and see what is going on. The water collects under the evaporator (the fins where cold air comes out). Underneath there should be some kind of tray or something that collects the condensate and directs it somewhere in the unit for it to be gotten rid of. I'm thinking something is cracked, leaking or come loose, letting the water escape and run out. If that is the case, you might be able to use silicone seal or something like it to seal the leak. Hopefully, it is something simple like that.

Replace Speedometer lights in 1969 Honda ct90 K-1

K1's are noted to have problems with the colored lenses falling off with age. The speed-o is not meant to be taken apart to fix this. To get these lenses back in place is a toothpick, glue and a lots of patience.

Now if it's the bulbs that need replacing that's much easier. Take head light out and slip rubber boots off each individual light and pull them out of the little tin tubes. TS

DeLonghi Pinguino PAC CT90 It is less than a year has quit coolin

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.

How do we get rid of the water that collects in

There is no container, it burns it up inside into hot air and sends the moisture out the exhaust tube which you hooked up to the back of the unit and ran either outside or underneath house through flooring. There is one of these units that does come with a bucket in the front bottom drawer that comes out, but if its a PAC ct90 just like mine, there is no water empty it handles all that itself.

Empty wateron DeLonghi Pinguino Pac L 90

That probably is Ft, meaning full tank. Look on the bottom of the back side, and there should be a small "hatch" that will open. The two small hoses in there are drain hoses that can be unplugged to drain the tank. They're right at the bottom, so if you have a way to raise the unit up a little that would let you drain the water into a container. Might be a good time to clean the filter too.
