Question about DeLonghi PAC C120 Portable Air Conditioner
How can I get my unit to stop dumping water, and how do I get it to begin cooling. It does not cool. It only blows warm air.

I would drain the water out of the machine via the plug on the back once the unit is drained turn on, wait a few minutes. If compressor does not come on or comes on and does not cool, you need service beyond diy.

you may need to remove the rear cover to examine what is and is not running. once you remove the back, start up the unit on a workbench. see if the fan is running and the compressor has kicked in. look at the larger or two tubes coming out of the compressor. if it is cooling a small layer of frost or condensation will appear on this " suction" line. if this tubing and the other one are approx the same temperature, then there is a freon leak in the system. Only an EPA certified technician can fill your unit. I am not familiar with that RED button but it mat be a reset of some sort. With the back removed see how it is connected in the wiring circuit. if you have the wiring diagram, please send it to me under my regular email address and I'll walk you through the troubleshooting procedure.

Hoses for proper connection should have been included with your purchase. Without the hoses the set-up can not be done satisfactory. One is for fresh air supply and the other is the hot air exit hose. These are normally vented out a window. Check with the dealer where you perchased the unit from. If from a private individual contact them.

The Pinguino's exhaust pipe has to be attached to the window bracket to direct the air hot air out of the room, otherwise the room can't cool properly.
The owner's manual has several troubleshooting remedies for you to try:
1) If the window is open, close the window. 2) If there is a heat source in the room (burner, lamp, etc.), eliminate the heat source. 3) If the exhaust hose is detached, connect the exhaust hose. (My recommendation is to connect the exhaust hose to the window bracket and direct the air outside.) 4) If the air filters are clogged, clean or replace the filters.
Remedies that aren't mentioned in the manual, but you might find helpful:
1) Make sure that there are no kinks in the hose, and that the hose either remains straight or has a gentle curve when directing it into the window bracket.
2) A sunny window reduces the maximum power and efficiency of the unit. Placing it in a sunny window reduces your BTUs by at least 600, which means the maximum square footage of cooled space is reduced. Cooling a kitchen requires at least 4,000 BTUs alone, which is nearly half of the unit's BTUs. Try to place the unit by a window that receives minimum to no direct sunlight.
Finally, stating the obvious, if the room isn't cooling, the room is too large for the unit. The PACL90 cools up to 400sqft. Bear in mind that the air from these portable air conditioners cannot move around corners very well, so try to set it by a window in the central part of the room.

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.
