Setting up
PERMANENT INSTALLATION
The Pinguino accessories include two sets of
flanges and stoppers, to be mountedl in different
locations (two different rooms). Once installed,
these vents (flanges) are the only items needed
for using Pinguino.
Permanent installation outlet holes must be in
an exterior wall and opening diameter should not
exceed 3”1/2.

In case of fixed installation, air discharged from
rear hose has been extracted from the room
where the appliance is installed.
Check that the room (especially if small) is not
“air-tight”; a drop in pressure would cause irregular functioning, which could consequently activate reset switch. Air entering through door and
window cracks is normally sufficient. If deemed,
necessary leave a door ajar (approx. 1 cm is
enough).

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.
If you have a sash door, use the additional set
provided in order to extend the accessory to the
desired length; joining the two parts (fig. 8),
adjust the total lenghth according to your needs
then, fix the bracket with the relevant nuts, close
the door and connect the hose (fig. 9).

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 (fig.7). Thanks to the
wing nut, it’s possible to use the window bracket
also for sliding windows. Position the hole of the
bracket so to allow a correct installation of the
exhaust hose.

SETTING THE TIMER
The programmer/timer, like all clocks, must be
set to the exact time. If for example it is 4.00
p.m., turn the dial in a clockwise direction (following the direction of the arrow) until the number 4 is lined up with the arrow pointer (the
arrows indicates 4:00 p.m. approximately).

1) Release B timer button
2) Set the operating times by pushing out the
notches on the dial corresponding to the
period required (each notch represents 15
mins.).
3) Check that the timer indicates the correct
time (see instructions on setting).
Operating time
eg. from 9 to 11 a.m.
arrow pointer
Note:Never turn the dial in an anti-clockwise
direction!
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.
PROGRAMMED MODE
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.
Note: 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.
