WHAT IS THE WATER-AIR PINGUINO
During the summer, you feel comfortable at a
temperature of between 24 and 27° C with a relative humidity of about 50%.
An air conditioner removes excess moisture and
heat from the room where it is located.
Compared with wall mounted models, portable
air conditioners have the advantage that they can
be moved from one room to another in the home
or be transported from one building to another.
Hot air from the room is passed through a coil
cooled by refrigerant gas. Excess heat and moisture are removed before the air is re-emitted
into the room.
In single unit models, a small part of this air is
used to cool the refrigerant gas and then, when
hot and damp, is discharged outside.
In exclusive De’Longhi water-air models, the
heat is removed from the room through the cooling effect of the water which is obviously much
greater than air.
This gives this air conditioner unbeatable cooling
efficiency.
WHAT IS THE PINGUINO inverter
The Inverter technology has been designed to offer the best comfort with optimised energy consumption. It guarantees very high cooling power
to rapidly reach the set temperature, which is
then maintained constant over time.
This technology is essentially based on an electronic device that allows frequency variations of
the electric motor, to adjust the rotation speed of
the compressor and obtain a modulation of the
cooling power.
This device eliminates the sequence of On – Off
required by conventional air conditioners to keep
a fixed room temperature, with consequential
high temperature fluctuations around the set
temperature and longer time gaps before it is
reached.
ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
Before plugging the appliance into the mains
socket, check that:
• the mains power supply corresponds to the
value indicated on the rating plate on the
back of the appliance;
• the power socket and electrical circuit are
adequate for the appliance;
• the mains socket matches he plug. If this is
not the case, have the plug replaced;
• the mains socket is adequately earthed.
Failure to follow these important safety
instructions absolves the manufacturer of all
liability.
The Pinguino Inverter always operates at the
optimum cooling capacity and the maximum
energy efficiency as the power consumption is
limited to effective requirements, both in periods
of average and low thermal load (morning or
evening), and during the hotter and more humid times (middle of the day), when the Inverter
technology is especially valuable.

PREPARING FOR
WATER MODE
OPERATION
IN
• Immerse the paper completely in a glass of
water for one second.
• Remove the paper from the water and shake lightly. After about a minute, 1, 2, 3, 4
or 5 red squares appear, depending on the
hardness of the water. The appliance can be
set to three different water hardness levels
soft (H1), medium (H2) and hard (H3). Determine the hardness of the water you will be
using by comparing the red squares on the
indicator paper with the table below.
Once the appliance has been installed, it is ready
for use.
However, its efficiency can be enhanced by operating it in the exclusive De’Longhi water mode.
The water in the tank increases the cooling power of your Pinguino and at the same time reduces noise levels and electrical consumption.
Compared to air, water reduces the temperature
of the cooling circuit much more efficiently, before being given off from the air exhaust hose in
the form of vapour.
Remember that:
• You must always use salt-free clean mains
water.
• The length of time the water in the tank lasts
depends greatly on environmental conditions such as temperature, humidity, insulation, the exposure of the room, the number
of people present, etc.
Indicatively it lasts about six hours.
The BOOST function (see page 30) shortens
the operating time to about 4 hours, but the
cooling power and efficiency are increased.
• When the water in the tank runs out, the
light comes on and operation of the
appliance switches automatically to air-air.

To set water hardness, proceed as follows:
1. Set the appliance to stand-by.
2. Hold the FAN button on the control panel
down for 10 seconds. The appliance emits a
beep and H1, H2 or H3 is displayed.
3. Use the + or - buttons to set the hardness
level according to the table above. Wait a few
seconds for the setting to be memorized. The
appliance emits another beep and goes back
to stand-by.
The appliance is fitted with a resin limescale filter enabling normal tap water to be
used.
The impregnated resins reduce water hardness
and therefore prolong the working life of the
appliance.
The appliance is set by default for medium
hardness (H2).
“CF” is displayed when the limescale filter needs replacing. The efficacy of the filter
depends on water hardness.
Filling the tank
The water tank is located at the bottom of the
appliance. Extract the tank by inserting the hand
through the door above the word “PULL” (fig.
13) and pulling the tank out as far as it will go.
Remove the cap and use a container (bottle, jug,
watering can) to pour in the water (fig. 14/15).
You can see when the tank is full through the fil-

ling hole. It holds a maximum of 10 litres.
Turn the appliance off and unplug from the
mains.
Make sure there is no water in the appliance by
emptying the tank and internal tray as described
in the section: “End of season operations”.
Lay the appliance on its back as shown in figure
17. Rest it on a towel or piece of cardboard to
avoid scratches or damage. Remove the filter cover by unscrewing the four screws (fig. 17).
Remove the filter delicately and loosen the two
ties, making sure the two hoses connecting the
filter do not slip inside the appliance. Fit the new
filter, following the same procedure in reverse
(fig. 16/15). The pawl on the filter (see figure)
indicates the correct direction. The pawl must always be towards the inside of the appliance and
point “A” must be facing upwards.

Water may leak out while replacing the
limescale filter. You should therefore perform
the operation in a suitable location.
After replacing the filter, wait at least an hour
before starting the machine again.
Replace the cap correctly and close the tank, pushing it in as far as it will go. The tank hole has a
mesh filter to prevent the introduction of foreign
matter. If necessary, this filter can be unscrewed
and removed for cleaning under running water.
• The tank does not have to be full to use the
water function, but the length of time the
appliance will operate in water mode will be
shorter.
• Do not fill above the level of the hole to avoid
the water overflowing. The tank has no overflow prevention system.

When the filter has been replaced, turn the
alarm off by pressing the ON/STAND-BY
button (15) for 10 seconds.
The appliance emits a beep.
