Worked week until motor and board became faulty
Purchased approx 7 yrs ago worked fine until 3 weeks ago when fan stopped electrician found faulty board and motor at same time price to fix is $1700 expensive to fix to Install complete new unit $3200 weighing up whether to purchase a different brand if this is what happens every 7 yrs.Why would both go at same time is that how they are setup to make customer pay big money on repairs after warranty

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.
Purchased for $3,595.00.

OK when it worked
Had my E190 Breezeair installed in 2009, so I have had a reasonable run with it ...serviced it meticulously annually. Pump was replaced under warranty. The fan has stopped working now (right at the beginning of 2020/2021 summer) and my written and phone requests for service have gone unanswered for 37 days now...which does not surprise me as I also had a ducted heater installed at the same time as the aircond and when it died it took a month and a genuine threat to refer the matter to consumer affairs to get a response. So now I have spent my ...$15 grand I still get no service...consequently, I will not be a Seely customer again. My main gripe obviously is about the lousy service. Both units work fine when they work, but service to me is just as important and Seely clearly know how to sell things but go missing when service is required. Therefore, make your own judgement!

Love it, never fails us
This is perfect for our 4x2 home, keeps us cool even on the hottest days . The magic touch control is easy to use and the unit is quiet. Highly recommend

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....
Unit has died after 7 years
We have been happy with the performance of our EXH170 since it was installed 7 years ago, but are disappointed, that in spite of having it serviced and the pads renewed just over 12 months ago, it failed to fire up when we turned it on at the commencement of our current heatwave. We duly contacted a local company who charged us $150 + GST to tell us that he 'thought' the problem was most likely the PCB but there was no guarantee and advised that there may well be further faults! We have just received his quote for $2358.50 for removal and rep...lacement of the PCB and the supply and installation of a new fan motor. Is this a realistic quote? Our only income is our age pension and we simply cannot afford to pay this sort of money, only to find that it is still not working. We are currently leaning towards paying a bit extra and replacing it with a cheaper brand. Are you able to advise whether the quote we have is a realistic one, or, should we shop around for a better price? My concern in doing that is that each time someone looks at it, we will have to pay yet another call-out fee, and we simply can't afford to do that. Please advise. Thanks, Sue

Electronics and whiz bang fails to work. To many things to go wrong.
1) Bought two for upstairs/downstiars.
2) Dump valves leak, replaced one. Other leaks like a seive.
3) Currently neither are working. One simply doesn't want to do anything. The otherworks for 30 minutes and then shuts off.
4) Always a problem and never worry free over the years.
5) Tried contacting the company, never replied.
6) Looks nice.
7) DON"T BUY!!!

I have to say that I don't own this product. I wouldn't buy anything from this company even if they had sold it for a dollar. The company that treats workers like slaves from the American South in 19 century.
I have owned two of these units for 5 years and a month, which is just outside the warranty period of 5 years. One unit has failed. The quoted repair cost is about $1,500 for a new controller and valve. The service tech is probably better to buy a new one. This seems over priced to me.

Extremely disappointing..worked during Summer evenings - lasted 5 years
Do not waste your time or good money. Stopped working, technicians could not diagnose the problem. Their answer was replace the $700 controller and if that doesn't work the motor??? Really $1800.00 repair.
- Icon EXH210
Most expensive Evap unit to maintain
We had our Breezeair EGH210-G installed 9 years ago and use it frequently in the summer. Over the last two years we have had to replace two Solenoid valves @180 per piece, Drain Valve $448, Pump $550 and as of last week the Control Box $900.
This despite servicing the unit annually and replacing the pads @ $750 as directed. I would not recommend Breezeair based on my experience with this unit.
Purchased in September 2010 at Weather Wizard for $5,800.00.
Control Box faulty
This unit is rubbish over the three years in the house we have used the cooler maybe for 2 months out of that time. Now the Control box is no good and needs replacing. The Sealy representative told us that the unit itself is not worth repairing as a new control box would cost $600 and we would have to replace the pads so buy a new system. After paying a $245 service fee to be told that it would be better to replace the unit. The unit has hardly been used, it would be similar to owning a car for 5 years and only doing 10 000kms but then being to...ld the car is no longer any good and should be replaced. This would never be acceptable. Look for a cheap unit and replace every 5 years it would cost less than buying a Breezair overpriced underperforming unit.

We have had the EXH 190 model for nearly 12 years and have never had a problem. The unit performs well and is very reliable. Unlike every other household appliance.
