Question about DeLonghi Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

This is the solution I rec'd earlier re my De Longhi Pinguino AC 10,000 BTU. If you're in San Diego CA could you make a house call to fix my AC by replacing the cord/plug?\r\n The portion of the plug that you refer to is known as a GFCI protector. It is designed to interrupt the flow of electrical current to the device if there is an imbalance of current flow in the hot and neutral conductors. When you pressed the TEST and RESET buttons together, you essentially shorted out the sampling resistor, and blew the trip relay. Replace the plug / cord with a manufacturer spare. For temporary use, as in testing only, you can remove the GFCI plug and replace it with a regular and appropriately wired plug. This will restore power to the unit, and allow you to continue to troubleshoot without being impeded by the GFCI affecting the outcome.

Never remove a GFI. It is there for a reason. If your plug is has a bad GFI, you can replace the plug with a standard one but make sure you replace where it plugs into with a GFI receptacle which only cost about 30 bucks, or you could replace the breaker that feeds that circuit with a GFI breaker. The problem with replacing the breaker is that if you place any resistance head loads on it (i.e. blow dryer, toaster), it might trip because you get a loss of current from resistance heat. The GFI only looks at what is going in and what is going out. If it sees an imbalance of up to 20 milli amps, it will trip. Your cheapest way is replace with a standard plug and add a GFI plug receptacle to where it plugs into.

Rebates are given by either the manufacturer or the retailer. You must contact either of them, depending on from whom the rebate is coming, to see the status of your rebate.
