How does your Pinguino work
D
uring the summer, optimum comfort is achieved with a temperature of around 24 °C and 50%
relative humidity.
An air conditioner removes moisture and heat from the room where it is located. One advantage
of portable air conditioning units over fitted models is that they can be moved from one room to
another in the home or even transferred between different buildings.
The hot air in your room is passed through
a coil cooled by refrigerant gas,
removing excess heat and moisture
before
being
discharged
again into the room.
In single unit models, a small
amount of this air is used to
cool the refrigerant gas,
then the hot and moist air is
discharged outside.

Pre p a ra t i o n f o r u s e
HOW TO USE THE AIR-CONDITIONER WITH WATER
These air conditioners can use both air and water to cool the condenser (the hot part) of the air
conditioner.
To utilise the full potential of your air conditioner, the tank 5 needs to be filled with water. The water
is used to increase the cooling power and reduce the noise level and energy consumption of the air
conditioner. The water that is used in then expelled from the machine as water vapour through the
exhaust hose 23 (it does not go into room).
Always use clean top water (which doesn’t contain salts). As a rule the water will usually last about 8
hours however this depends on the conditions within the room, such as temperature, humidity, insulation and aspect and number of people. In turbo mode the water will also be used more quickly.
You may also use the air-conditioner on air cooling only (without filling the water tank if you only require the lower cooling power).
2
A) To open the front panel
3 grip either side of the
panel and gently pull the
panel towards you and
upwards. Remove the tank
5 Lifting it forward.
B) Turn the tank upside down
and remove the plug,
remove the extendible
tube and fill the tank, leaving it on the ground.
C) After completing the filling procedure, replace
the
extendible
hose,
replace the cap and
screw it in tightly. Return
the tank to its place, with
the writing FRONT clearly
visible. Carefully hold the
panel in the centre and
lower to its closed position.
During the "water functioning" operation and in particularly silent locations (eg the bedroom) a
slight gurgling sound may be heard. This is completely normal.
IN HIGH HUMIDITY CONDITIONS
Water is extracted from the air in the room, this water is also used to cool the condenser. When
the humidity is particulary high an excess of water may build up in the internal tank. This can be
drained by removing the bung from the drain hose 11 and draining into a suitable receptacle.
IMPORTANT: if the room temperature is 32°C or over the airconditioner must be operated with with
water in the tank.

Selecting functions
AIR CONDITIONING FUNCTIONS
TURBO POWER
To turn the unit on in air conditioning mode,
proceed as follows:
The Turbo Power mode was designed to provide the appliance with a greater cooling
potential. This is particularly useful when you
want to bring the temperature of a very
warm room quickly down to a more comfortable level. In this case:
Make sure that the tank is full of water (see
page 22);
Make sure that the function selector switch
1. Press the
9
button 10 (the signal light “I”
will come on).
2. Rotate the function selector 18 dial anticlockwise:
• Place the large star symbol
in line with
the reference mark to operate the unit in
air conditioning mode at maximum fan
speed (the signal light 21 will come on,
and then, after 3 minutes the signal light
14 will come on ).
• Place the small star symbol
in line with
the reference mark to operate the unit in
air conditioning mode at minimum fan
speed (the signal light 21 will come on,
and then, after 3 minutes the signal light
15 will come on ).
3. Now set the required temperature by rotating the room thermostat dial 19 .
Note
The temperature is not expressed in degrees.
We recommend that you turn the thermostat
dial to the maximum position. When the desired room temperature has been reached,
slowly turn the thermostat in a clockwise
direction until it arrives at the position where a
click can be heard. The signal lights 21 and
14 (or 15 ) will turn off.
The temperature selected in this way will
automatically be regulated and maintained,
and save energy. When regulating the thermostat, the air conditioning function is temporarily interrupted and the unit continues to
operate in fan only mode. In this way, the
appliance keeps the air temperature within
the room even.
Delay on Start Up
1. A special safety device will delay the start
of air conditionig by approximately 3 to 5
minutes when switching between functions or on initial start up.
2. You may also experience a slight delay
between changing from one function to
another.
