TEMPORARY INSTALLATION
Note: In both cases (permanent and temporary installations) make sure that the Pinguino is positioned on level ground. If necessary use the two caster stops for the front casters
This installation makes it easy
to use Pinguino in any room,
provided there is a window or
a door: it allows you to use the
Pinguino immediately.
Suction discs may be used to
keep window or door closed.
Pinguino is equipped with an
adjustable window bracket. If
you have a sash window,
place the bracket on the window sill, extend the bracket
fully within the window frame
and lower the window onto the
bracket. Insert the nozzle of
the exhaust hose into the slot,
then connect the hose to the
air conditioner.

FINAL CHECK
In order to obtain the maximum performance from your air-conditioner make sure that:
fig. 10
-
Doors and windows of room to be airconditioned are closed (with the exception of temporary installation where a partially opened window is necessary).
fig. 11
fig. 13
fig. 12
-
Shade the room as far as possible from
direct sunlight by drawing curtains and/or
lowering blinds or shutters, for economical
and efficient air-cooling.
-
Ensure that intake and outlet vents (fig. 2
and 3) are not blocked.
Make sure there are no sources of heat in
the room.
SPECIAL NOTE
This machine is designed to be used with or without water. Maximum performance is obtained
using water. When used without water, Pinguino will operate at about 67% cooling capacity.
HOW TO PREPARE WATER CONTAINER
Use only clean, salt-free tap water. The water is essential for the air cooling operation and si discharged in the form of steam through the exhaust outlet. A container full of water lasts for a period that
depends on a number of conditions such as temperature, humidity, insulation, exposure of the room,
number of people present, etc. On average it will last approximately 7 to 10 hours.
When the container is empty, the appliance automatically changes function from water to air. At the
same time, the quantity of air discharged from the rear hose will increase.
fig. 14
Open the water container compartment
door, tip the container forwards and lift
up to remove
Remove the cap, pull out the extendable tube and fill the container, standing
it on the floor.
After filling, replace the extendable
tube, screw the cap on tightly and
return the container to its place, making
sure the word FRONT is facing out.
During “water condensation” cooling function and in particularly quiet surroundings (eg. bedroom), a
slight gurgling noise may be heard. This may be regarded as perfectly normal.
Warning: Do not use water containing salt, eg. seawater or water treated using softening systems
that utilize kitchen salt.

The timer is in effect, an electric clock and
works only if the plug is connected to the
power supply. Whenever the plug is disconnected or there is a power failure, the programmer stops (the clock is then “slow”) and must
be re-set.
The unit can be used in either programmed or
non-programmed mode.
N.B:
4) Select the desired function as shown in the
chart overleaf.
The unit will now switch on and off each
day at the selected times.
Note: To override the programmed operating
times, simply press the ON/OFF key.
NON-PROGRAMMED MODE
1) B TIMER button must be pressed
2) Select the desired function as shown in the
chart on the following page.
For technical reasons, the temperature is not expressed in degrees but by a line increasing
in thickness. We therefore recommend that when starting up the appliance, the thermostat
be turned to maximum (thick green line = maximum cold). When the desired temperature
has been reached, turn the thermostat slowly away from the maximum cooling position until
the appliance switches off. Leave the thermostat in this position. The air-conditioner is now
programmed to maintain the exact temperature at all times.
After switching the appliance off, wait at least 3 min. before switching on again.
