Very expensive when it goes wrong. Probably more economic alternatives now

I have owned and operated an EXH190 since November 2010. Very useful system and uses consumer grade electronic design but unlike most consumer grade products is very expensive to repair/replace.

It is probably more economic these days to install plenty of solar cells and have them power refrigerative air conditioners during daylight hours of which there are plenty available during hot weather. These products have a far bigger supplier base than evaporative coolers so provide greater opportunities for getting a reliable and thus economic system. The electricity cost is then only the feed-in tariff which is declining over time. Show details

Disappointed

Change over to EXH190 when i moved into the house in 2017. Over the years replaced a new fan motor, pads and two control box. Last year failed again, serviceman replaced control box and a solenoid valve. 2 days ago fan couldnt run even on vent mode Same problem I had last breakdown, control box again. Try in vain this time to get warranty from the same serviceman ,didnt return my msg and phonecall. Apparently, found out that he has left the job. I dont think it worth repairing,has spent too much on it already on this cooler. Disappointing and not sure what to do now. Show details

4 motors and a pump

Purchased in 2013. At first was amazing. Then the problems started. Now it's stopped working again. Will be it's 4 motors since new. I reckon it's cost more than the original purchase and installation.
Very unhappy.

Do not purchase

Unfortunately with this product the simplicity of evaporative a/c (one of it's most attractive features) is destroyed by the inclusion of the magiqtouch controller system. It is prone to malfunction, cannot handle unreliable power supplies or storms at all, and because the controller's time must be reset after every power glitch, most of the magiqtouch features are rendered completely useless. The construction of the fan and pump unit is of good quality but it needs a simple and reliable controller. Mine does not work at all at the moment. Show details

Great unit for hot dry weather, or when I feel the need to get some fresh air in the house

Great unit with no issues so far. Heading into my third summer with it now and it replaces the hot, stale air very well. Show details ·  1

Broken down right after 7 years guarantee period

It seems that most people have the same problem. This is no doubt about the product quality and we only use it for about 2 months each year.
Service man told us that the control board is not working. Cost $980 to replace plus $240 service cost. On the date of installation, the unit still didn’t run as the motor has died. Costing another truck loads of $$$ for the motor Show details

Unreliable

When this works, it’s great. We have had it for 7 years but I can’t remember a year when we have not needed something fixed. Very disappointing. So far, it has needed two new solenoids and a new (expensive) dump valve. Now, the week before Christmas, it’s down again. Our plumber spent the best part of a full day working on it. He finally got it going, but as he left, he said that he couldn’t promise how long it would go. Now - Christmas Eve - it’s pumping uncooled air again! Sick of spending money on this. Will be looking to replace with a different brand. Shouldn’t have to do this after 7 years, Show details

Don’t buy if you want a reliable unit

When working air conditioner is quiet and effective but cost of breakdowns make it unaffordable - new motor, controller and now something else is wrong all in one year. Last two repairs cost $700 each with no itemised listing on invoice . Look elsewhere for a reliable unit. Seems that new technologies don’t live up to the hype. Wish I still had my old unit that lasted 25 years and not this unit which has only lasted 7 years. Show details

Feel I have been abused and taken advantage of

Have had the Breezair EXH210 for 7 years.. The past 4 years have been a nightmare dealing with Seeley. They are so unhelpful and aggressive on the phone.. 4years ago. Blown motor. Massive callout fee and $900. Hardly without use blown again.. Replace under warranty but still huge callout fee although their problem.. A season later a control box blow up.. $951.plus callout fee.. Just a few weeks ago control box blows again.. Rang Seeley. $300callout and another $1000.i like to buy Australian but Sealey has treated me poorly and this Aircond is a real Dud.. Please save yourself a huge headache. The repair bill now $2200....  Show details

how do I shut my breezair down?

A Breezair doesn't require a 'shut down' as they have an auto clean feature. You just need to have it serviced every 2-3 years to ensure it is running correctly and to check the pads.

Should the ‘overflow’ water be running out at more than a trickle? Current rate 1 Ltr per minute.

No idea. Sorry, Robert.
