How do I open the machine??? K 900 pinguino from Delonghi...it's been working fine for 3 years but all of a sudden...the water won't go into the bucket (inside the pinguino)...if I don't empty the hose (which I'm supposed to empty once or twice a week), water will end up on the floor. Air conditioning still works fine...it's just a water problem....do you thin there has been a calcareous probelm?
Can I fix it alone....
I had the same problem with my Delonghi K900. I have an extended warrantee for both my Delonghi air conditioners. It was taken into the shop and discovered that the hose that allows the water to drip into the collecting tank was clogged with dirt and dust.
I find it is a good idea to have them cleaned and checked once a year, especially if used often.
For under a hundred dollars, I have a warrantee that will last until the year 2010. Sears offers warrantees for any home appliance, even if it wasn't purchased there.
Taking the air conditioner apart yourself can cancel any warrantee on them machine.
Hope this helps.

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.
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.
I had similar problem .... on very humid days unit leaks ..... temp solution for me was to drain the unit .... inserted wire coat hanger into tube .... lots of watery gook came out.. - even tilted/tipped the unit inorder to get as much water out of it.......afterwards unit worked fine.
We are VERY SASTIFIED with the Delonghi Pinguino - bought it years ago when it first came out and it has provided years of troublefree service .... the water build up / leaking was only recently - in fact we never drained the thing until this year.
i just opened the back of the unit and byepasted the reset button . the wires on the reset button i toke off and jioned them with a piece of steel connectind the 2 of them together there are 3 of them i just tokk the top 1 and bottom 1 closest to yourself off and jioned them it is working fine and has been since i have done that try that i hope it works for you as it did 4 mine happy sleepin with cool air
It's actually "Ft", which means "Full Tank". The instruction manual says to drain the internal safety tank through the drain hoses.
To drain the tank, open the cover on the rear of the appliance.
Pull out the 2 drain hoses, take off the caps, and let all the residual water flow out.
When all the water has been drained, place the caps back on the hoses and put the hoses back inside.
It also says you need to clean the filters and let them dry thoroughly before putting them back.
This is also the procedure for "End of Season Operations."
Hope this helps!
