WHAT IS THE WATER-AIR PINGUINO
During the summer, you feel comfortable at a temperature of between 75°F and 81°F (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 installed 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 reemitted into the room.
In single duct 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.

The instructions below will enable you to prepare your air conditioner for operation as efficiently as possible.
Before use, make sure the air intake and outlet grilles are unobstructed.
AIR-CONDITIONING
1
WITHOUT INSTALLATION
Just a few simple steps and your comfort is ensured with your
appliance:
• Fit the air exhaust hose (K) in the housing (G) at the back of
the appliance (fig. 1).
2
• Fit the window outlet (N) to the end of the hose.
• Place the air conditioner near a window or French window.
• Adjust the length of the air exhaust hose to reach the window.
• Make sure the air exhaust hose is unobstructed.
• Open the window or French window slightly and position the
window outlet (fig. 2).
• If you have a double window, use the suction pad (Q) provided to hold the two parts of the window together (fig. 3).
For optimum results:
3
• If you have a sash window, place the window bracket (T) on the
window sill, extend the window bracket fully within the window
frame, fix the window bracket by using the locking pin then lower
the window onto the window bracket. Insert the window outlet
(N) of the exhaust hose (K) into the slot, then connect the hose to
the air conditioner (fig. 4).
• Thanks to the locking pins, it’s possible to use the window bracket also
for sliding windows. Position the hole of the window bracket so to
allow a correct installation of the exhaust hose (see figure 5).
• If the windows are large, use the window bracket extension
(U) to cover your window aperture, extending it to the required length, then blocking it with the locking pins supplied (see
figure 6). Make sure you do not cover the hole for the window
outlet.

PREPARING
FOR
OPERATION
IN
WATER
MODE
Once the appliance has been installed following the instructions
above, 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 tap 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. By using the
WATERSAVE function (see page 13), the length of time can be
extended to 10 hours, with a slightly lower cooling power and
efficiency.
• When the water in the tank runs out, the
light comes on
and operation of the appliance switches automatically to air
to air operation. At the same time, the quantity of air given
out from the rear hose increases.
FILLING
THE TANK
You can fill the tank in one of two ways:
1) By using the water jug provided:
Use the water jug provided or any other plastic/glass bottle or
watering can, providing the neck of the bottle or watering can is
narrow enough to enter the filling hole to avoid spilling water on
the appliance.
• Without using force, open the water fill door (J) completely,
then remove the rubber cap (fig. 12).
• Pour the water into the tank (fig. 13). When the tank is full, the
water level window (fig.14) becomes completely red.
Indicatively, you will need to refill the jug three times to fill the
tank completely.
• After filling, put the rubber cap back in place, then close the
door.
2) Using the extendible hose:
• Without using force, open the water fill door (J) completely,
then remove the rubber cap (fig. 12). Pull out the extendible
hose (fig. 15) and place near a tap.
• Fill the tank to the required level.
• When the tank is full, the water level window (fig. 14) becomes completely.
• After filling, put the rubber cap back in place, then close the
door.

AIR PURIFYING FILTERS
The appliance is fitted with a dust filter which retains impurities in
the air drawn in from the room.
Certain models also include other filters with a high filtering capacity, namely a silver ion filter and a 3M® electrostatic filter.
SILVER
ION FILTER
The silver ion filter not just retains dust particles, but also has an
efficient antibacterial action. It also greatly reduces concentrations of irritants such as pollen and spores.
The filter is treated with small particles of silver (on the scale of millionths of a millimeter) which are able to block the multiplication
of and kill any nearby bacteria or spores.
3M®
