20 During the summer, you feel comfortable at a temperature of between 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 heat exchanger cooled by refrigerant gas. Excess heat and moisture are removed from the air which is then re-emitted into the room cooler and dryer. In single unit models, a small part of this air is used to cool the refrige- rant gas and then, when hot and damp, is discharged outsi- de. In models with outdoor unit, the circuit is cooled using air from outside. All Pinguino models can also be used in fan-only mode. WhatisPinguino?
21 GB 1 2 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 WITHOUT INSTALLATION Just a few simple steps and your comfort is ensured with Pinguino: • Fit the air exhaust hose 12 in the housing 7 at the back of the appliance. Insert as shown in figure A. • If you have a double window, use the suckers 11 provided to hold the two parts of the window together (fig. C). • Fit the window outlet 13 to the end of the hose 12. • Place the air conditioner near a window or French window. • Make sure the air exhaust hose is unobstruc- ted. • Open the window or French window sligh- tly and position the outlet 13 as shown in figure B. A Preparing for use B C Keep the air hoses as short and free of curves as possible to avoid bottlenecks. ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS Before plugging the appliance into the mains socket, check that: • the mains power supply corresponds to the value indicated on the rating plate on the back of the appliance; • the power socket and electrical circuit are adequate for the appliance. • the mains socket matches the plug. If this is not the case, have the plug replaced; • the mains socket is adequately earthed. Failure to follow these important safety instructions absolves the manufacturer of all liability. The power cable must be replaced by a qualified professional only.
22 Preparing for use AIR-CONDITIONING WITH INSTALLATION If required, the Pinguino can also be installed semi-permanently (Fig. D). • Fit the flange accessory provided 10 in the hole • Fissare il tubo 12 in the housing at the back of the appliance (fig. A, page 21). • Fit the end of the hose 12 to the flange 10 as shown in fig. F. Proceed as follows: • Drill a hole in an outside wall or through a window pane. Respect the height and dimensions of the hole as given in figures E and F. 30 cm 30 cm 125 MAX100 cm MIN 35cm When the hose 12 is not fitted, the hole can be closed with the flange cap 10. NOTE: When installing the air conditioner semi-per- manently, you should leave a door slightly open (as little as 1 cm) to guarantee correct ventilation. in the window pane in the wall: you are recommended to insulate the sec- tion of wall using suitable insulation. in the woo- den kick- board of a French win- dow E F Keep the air hoses as short and free of curves as possible to avoid bottlenecks.

30 To get the best from your air conditioner, fol- low these recommendations: • close the windows and doors in the room to be air conditioned. The only exception is when the appliance is installed through a hole in the wall. In this case, you are recom- mended to leave a slight draught through a door or window to guarantee correct venti- lation. • Protect the room from direct exposure to the sun by partially closing curtains and/or blinds to make the appliance much more economical to run; • Never rest objects of any kind on the air conditioner; • Never obstruct the air intake 6 or outlet 2; • Make sure there are no heat sources in the room. • Never use the appliance in very damp rooms (laundries for example). • Never use the appliance outdoors. Tips close doors and windows close blinds or curtains do not cover the appliance • Make sure the air conditioner is standing on a level surface. If necessary, place the two castor locks 14 under the front wheels 3.
GB Before cleaning or maintenance, turn the appliance off by pressing the ON/STAND-BY button (A) or in models with remote control unit, by pressing the ON/OFF button, then always unplug the appliance from the mains socket. CLEANING THE CABINET You should clean the appliance with a slightly damp cloth then dry with a dry cloth. For safety reasons, never wash the air conditioner with water. Precautions Never use petrol, alcohol or solvents to clean the appliance. Never spray insecticide liquids or similar. CLEANING THE AIR PURIFYING FILTERS To keep your air conditioner working efficien- tly, you should clean the dust filter every week of operation. The filter is housed in the intake grille. To clean the filters, proceed as follows 1. Remove the dust filter by extracting it upwards (figures G and H). 2. Use a vacuum cleaner to remove dust accu- mulations from the filter. If it is very dirty, immer- se in warm water and rinse a number of times. The water should never be hotter than 40°C. After washing, leave the filter to dry, then put back in place. START OF SEASON CHECKS Make sure the power cable and plug are undamaged and the earth system is efficient. END OF SEASON OPERATIONS To empty the internal circuit completely of water, remove the cap (figure I) Run off all water left into a basin. When all the water has been drained, put the cap back in place. Clean the filter and dry thoroughly before putting back. G 31 Cleaning H I

The blue wire must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter N or coloured black. The brown wire must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter L or coloured red. ELECTRICAL CONNECTION (UK ONLY) A) If your appliance comes fitted with a plug, it will incorporate a 13 Amp fuse. If it does not fit your socket, the plug should be cut off from the mains lead, and an appropriate plug fitted, as below. WARNING: Very carefully dispose of the cut off plug after removing the fuse: do not insert in a 13 Amp socket elsewhere in the house as this could cause a shock hazard. With alternative plugs not incorporating a fuse, the circuit must be protected by a 15 Amp fuse. If the plug is a moulded-on type, the fuse cover must be re-fitted when changing the fuse using a 13 Amp Asta approved fuse to BS 1362. In the event of losing the fuse cover, the plug must NOT be used until a replacement fuse cover can be obtained from your nearest electri- cal dealer. The colour of the correct replacement fuse cover is that as marked on the base of the plug. B) If your appliance is not fitted with a plug, please follow the instruc- tions provided below:
