Question about DeLonghi Pinguino PAC-700T Air Conditioner
The compressor overheating safety switch it off for protection from overheating and result in complete damage of the compressor.
One posible reason is the condenser is full of dust.
Remove the grille and either sweep away or vacuum dust that is readily accesible.
This easy cleaning should be done at least once a year for most efficient operation.
Loss of the refrigerant charge will also cause the compressor to overheat. It is the cool return gas coming back to the compressor that helps to keep it from overheating.
As you can see there are many things that can go wrong with an air conditioner and I have not come close to exhausting the possibilities here. I have just touched on the most common problems in a very basic way.
There are some basic trouble shooting things that can be done very easily. Most problems are above out of the range of comfort for many homeowners and professional help should be consulted before any attempt is made at repairs. Remember also, that the release of refrigerant gases into the atmosphere is a federal offense in the US. Proper care must always be taken to minimize the release of any gases. A license is also required to handle refrigerants. Make sure that the professional you call has the proper certifications to handle refrigerants properly
