Question about DeLonghi Pinguino PACL90 Portable Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Freon Replacement Where do I purchase the freon and how do I replace it? I'm sure that's my problem; a/c doesn't blow cold and the full tank code keeps coming up, and when I empty it the water is oily.

Most refrigerants for household appliances are regulated by the E.P.A. purchase and or service of the refrigerant must be done by an EPA Type I, II or III service technician. There are potentially huge penalties for non compliance.

    This is a load of ****! The refrigerant that this unit requires, R22, can be bought at Walmart and loads of other hardware and other local stores.

    "Huge penalties for non-compliance" Are you joking? We're talking about a portable air conditioner, not a 5 ton unit!

    Find a manual and refill it yourself but be careful that you don't overfill. Definitely follow instructions and take precautions to keep from damaging the unit.

    P.S. Bleep*&$@! the EPA!!!

What are the Hi and Low pressures of the Freon for a Coleman model BRCSoi81BD??

If it blows COLD air "AND" the condenser freezes, it is a SURE sign of the system being OVER-CHARGED with FREON. Using a recovery tank and HVAC manifold/hoses, remove Freon from the system to the recovery tank, keeping a watchful eye on a multi-meter with an amp-probe around the compressor wire. When the OPTIMAL charge is obtained, the amp meter will dip to its LOWEST point. When a system is overcharged, it causes premature failure of the compressor.

Good luck.

Why wont my air conditioner on my '98 ford mustang blow out cold air?

More than likely your A/C compressor is the problem. Normally what will happen is the internal pressure becomes too high and causes the freon not to expand and therefore the air remains hot after the compression cycle. Have the high side and low side pressure checked. Am sure you will find the high side pressure is excessive. Good luck.

Not staying cool

sounds like it is either low on Freon or the compressor is going out. The blowing ice cold is an indicator that it may be freezing up because the low Freon. when it stops blowing cold, turn it to fan only mode and see if it gets colder again. If that is the case then the unit is low on freon and freezing up. I know that sounds confusing but that is how AC works. The low freon pressure means the gas is expanding too fast and the air flow cannot take up the cold from the evaporator fast enough. Turning the compressor off and keeping the fan on will alow the room air to take up the cold.

Ive owned the 10x6c for 2 years never used it because of my wiring doesn't have a ground,,let my neighbor borrow it and it doesn't blow cool air I hear the compressor turn on but no cool air?

If the compressor is coming on and the air is not cold, it could be that the freon has leaked out. Easiest way to check for no freon is to take the cover off the unit and run it in cool. The high side which is the smaller line coming into the top of the compressor should be hot, and the low side which is the large line coming off the side of the compressor should be cold when the compressor is running. If there is no temperature difference between the high side and low side tubing, you have no freon. Also check for oil residue once you have the cover off. If you spot oil, you had a leak and have no freon.

No cold air is blowing out like before and the thermostat is not going down. it is set for 70 and room temp is 77.this has ben like this for a couple of days. i just changed the batteries and it has not...

First you need to check some common things, like: 1. Check if the compressor is running. 2. If the compressor is not running, then you probably havebad capacitor. 3. Check the inside part of the unit, the air handler - you mayneed to change the indoor filter. 4. Check the condenser motor and condenser coil. Sometime thesetwo parts creates problem. 5. Also you need to check the evaporator fan, if it isworking properly. Finally andmost importantly check the Freon level. It seems like you have low Freon. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

Central air stops blowing cold after about 4 hours. The air blows at 63 degrees when it's cold.

Sounds like your evaporator coil is freezing up. This is a sign that you have a restricted air flow over the evaporator or you're low on freon. The 63 degree tempurature is indicitive of low freon. You should call in an a/c expert to check the freon level and while he's there have him clean the evaporator coil.

Changed compressor in my 1999 Dodge durango..doesn't blow cold

if there is a sight glass fitted check for bubbles that means it needs more freon or air is in the system or wrong expansion valve which sometimes can be adjusted, check fans if running well

Most likely you are low on freon. Your air conditioner uses a coil that gets cold when the freon passes through it to produce your cooling. The temperature of the freon inside the coil is directly controlled by the pressure of the freon. When the system is low on freon, it causes the coil to become to cold and then instead of sweating it freezes. You will need an a/c technician to reslove the problem for you as the task requires tools and equipment that you most likely don't have.

Thank you,
