I recently purchased a DeLonghi portable air conditioner
with heat pump, PAC AN125HPEC, through an online auction site. It appeared to be in like-new condition & I was excited about the fact that I could use it year round, as both a heater & air conditioner in my bedroom.
I had purchased another one from the same online auction, last winter that does not have the heating function &...although that one had signs of prior use, it works great & has kept the main living area of my home comfortable all summer long.
When I got the new one home, I followed the instructions for start-up & operation, which were pretty much the same as my other one. Unfortunately, to my dismay, although the unit comes on fine, the air conditioning mode operates the same as when it is set to the fan
mode. I let it run in the cooling mode, for several hours recently, only to find that when I returned home the area was as hot & humid as when I left it!
I was wondering if there is somewhere that I could take it to have a technician look at it. I don't know if the coolant needs to be recharged or if there is a more serious problem with the compressor.
