Love/Hate it

Honestly love the style of this fridge and the space it gives for the price it was but kept breaking down on us first it was a part that needed to be replaced and now it started leaking water from the bottom so we got a refund I'm sad we won't get the same one again because of the problems it caused Show details

Specs on energy rateing

Advertising as 5 star energy rating, and yet the manual states 4 star. Misleading information.
Where is the Australian standards. Missing as usual.

Worst service - avoid Haier (or F&P) anything!

Stopped cooling while still under warranty; service technician couldn't even come for 2 weeks! Asked how a family of 4 can cope without a fridge for a month (it took this long, 2 visits, many many phone calls, and ended up having to be completely replaced) - service team simply didn't care, practically treated us with contempt. Obviously so many broken products they can't train enough technicians to support them!
Can't see the poor product quality or almost non-existent warranty support would meet the minimum expectations of the Australian public! So very simply: AVOID ALL HAIER AND FISHER AND PAYKEL - unless you want a product that breaks quickly and to be treated with contempt. Show details

No Warranty Support Available

We bought this 80cm refrigerator on April 23rd 2022 from Joyce Mayne Nowra NSW. Within 3 weeks it was pouring water onto the floor and needed a warranty service but unfortunately the retailer and the manufacturer can not find a service agent to fix our machine. After a few weeks of phone calls and chasing up… We are now told that the south coast of NSW …lower than Nowra has no warranty support from Fisher Paykel
We have suggested that they exchange the fridge for a new machine if they cannot repair the unit.

Don’t buy these products

Not even two years old and doesn’t cool. Never had any appliance stop working like this, STAY AWAY FROM THEIR PRODUCTS.
Freezer is still working but fridge is stuffed. When I range for service they said they will order the part like the knew what was wrong without even seeing it, case in point!!! Show details

Do not buy

Less than one year old and the fuse keeps blowing. It’s not a common part so lots of waiting (without fridge for days) then new fuse only lasted less than two months.
Freezer cannot defrost so fridge loses chill from the top down.
Other anomalies in production noticed by repairers whilst here which they rectified.
This model is obviously a real dud. We are trying to get a refund.
