GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Pinguino is a very versatile air conditioner because it can operate both through water condensation as well as air condensation.

The User may choose the operational method:

1)

WATER FUNCTION

- When excellent efficiency, lower energy consumption, and greater speed in reaching the ideal climatic conditions are desired. This function is especially useful when the appliance is just turned on and when the room temperature is quite warm.

When the water reserve (in the tank) has been used up, Pinguino automatically changes to the air functioning mode.

2)

AIR FUNCTION

- This is the normal air conditioning function.

Height of outlet: within the range indicated by the dotted line in the figure below.

When the unit is not in use, the outlet hole should be sealed with the stopper supplied.

Temporary installation:

The outlet holes can be connected in a number of ways: fixed

hook

In any event, for maximum cooling efficiency the window should be closed as much as possible.

It is advisable :

— to keep the outlet free of any obstruction;

— to lower the blind partially, without obstructing the outlet, thereby reducing exposure to direct sunlight and indoor/outdoor air exchange.

INSTALLATION FOR HEATING FUNCTION (Model CT300H)

The unit is simply placed in the room to be heated; there is no need for the discharge hose to be installed.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS

— The mains supply, suitable for domestic electrical appliances, must correspond to the power requirements of the air conditioner (power consumption value shown in Table 1).

— Check that the power supply voltage is: 220/240 V-50 Hz

— Check that the mains socket is correctly earthed.

Note: In the case that the power cable becomes damaged, this must be substituted only by specialised personnel authorised by the manufacturer.

THIS APPLIANCE IS MANUFACTURED TO COMPLY WITH THE RADIO INTERFERENCE REQUIRE-

MENTS PROVIDED BY COUNCIL DIRECTIVE EN 55014.

25

PREPARING THE UNIT FOR USE

1) Fit the exhaust tube in place; if your conditioner is supplied with a bayonet tube, it is fitted as illustrated in the diagram.

2) For permanent installation, place the appliance near the wall or window outlet. Make sure it is standing on a level surface and fit the special shock absorbers/castor stops underneath the castors.

3) The exhaust hose can be compressed or extended between 500 mm. and 1400 mm., but is best used at minimum length.

Never stretch the hose.

HOW TO PREPARE WATER CONTAINER

Use only clean, salt-free tap water. The water is essential for the air cooling operation and is 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.

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.

Attention: Do not use water containing cooking salt or decalcified water which has been decalcified through the use of certain salts.

26

AIR COOLING FUNCTION

If the air cooling function of air-conditioner is chosen, it is not necessary to fill the water container.

FINAL CHECK

In order to obtain maximum performance from your air-conditioner, make sure that:

— doors and windows in the room to be air-conditioned are closed (except for temporary installation, in which case a window must be left partially open).

CLOSE THE WINDOWS

CLOSE THE DOORS

LOWER THE BLINDS

DRAW THE CURTAINS

— the room is well shaded from direct sunlight by drawing curtains and/or partially lowering blinds or shutters, to avoid excessive energy consumption

— the intake and outlet vents are free of any obstruction at all times

— there are no sources of heat in the room.
