Stopped working at 14 mths old
My husky 110 retro fridge turned into a freezer less than 14 mths after buying it at Harvey Norman at Cleveland. When I called Avisit the company that makes them they said it’s a cheap item and would not cover repairs. The fridge should last more than 14 mths . Very disappointing and should last more than 14 mths I should of have paid $250 for a hisence. I expected better quality
Purchased in April 2018 at Harvey Norman for $650.00.
I absolutely love my new retro fridge. It looks amazing and the finish is beautiful. It’s performance is perfect, cools very fast and maintains its temperature. Great price and I love that there is no freezer. Heaps of room and also has a double bottle holder. I’m now thinking of buying a nice wine fridge by Husky.
Some elements of poor design .... but excellent performance!
Just received the fridge after ordering online. First impresssions:
1: There is no handle, or indentation to easily slot fingers in to open door. Have to awkwardly jam fingers into the door clearance to open the door.
2: The condenser evaporator tray is a cheap piece of plastic which rests precariously (loose) on top of the compressor motor. If this dislodges there will be water spilled over the floor.
3: Looks good, but poor design for a $579 bar fridge!
Post script 28th Jan 2018:
Although the fridge has the above design flaws, so f...ar it has excellent ‘thermodynamic’ performance. The fridge is so well insulated that the compressor hardly runs, and is completely silent most of the time. This is in stark contrast to a lot of fridges available in the market today. Well done Husky! But please consider those design issues I bought up earlier.

Very quiet, heaps of room, gets more than cold enough
Love this fridge, it looks amazing and has heaps of room for everything I'd want to put in it. We were worried that it would be a bit noisy but the compressor is very hushed and suits our open kitchen plan well.
The interior cooled to 3C on the middle setting, so we turned it down a bit as we don't need it quite that cold.
Great looking and well built bar fridge
We purchased this retro style bar fridge for our garage as a second flow over refrigerator. One of the features we liked was that it did not contain an internal freezer draw therefore had more internal space than alot of the others. It was not cheap at over $800 for 110 L capacity but when we unpacked it, we saw that it was very meticulously packaged with lots of protection. It runs very quiet and has high energy rating for this size of unit. It looks great and has good interior space.
We have had it running now for over 6 months and are very happy with the purchase.
Questions & Answers
Our husky fridge starts and then stops very quickly and won’t get cold. Could this be something to do with the thermostat?
Please contact our Technical Department on 1300 762 219 for further assistance on what could be causing this issue.
The door is not closing. Seals are all good, but a gap between the door and refrigerator is now permanent. How do I fix???
It is difficult to determine the cause of the door gap without seeing the fridge. It might be best to give Arisit Technical Support a call on 1300 762 219 to see if they can help or send someone out to have a look.
My husky retro bar fridge keeps building up ice and cracking loudly. The seals have been replaced recently. It is only 18 mths old. Sits away from the wall. Ice builds up 4 days after defrosting. Thermostat set to medium. Any ideas?
Hi Michelle, the surface of the evaporator ices up when the refrigerator is working. This is an entirely normal part of operation. If the frost layer is more than 3mm/1⁄8” thick, the refrigerator must be defrosted and cleaned to avoid unnecessary energy consumption and inefficient operation.
• Remove all items inside and unplug the refrigerator.
• After defrosting, clean the refrigerator (see instructions below) and allow it to dry. Reconnect to the mains supply and follow the directions ‘To Operate Your Husky Retro refrigerator‘ on page 5 of your user manual.
The exterior may be cleaned using a microfibre cloth or similar. DO NOT use abrasive products on the exterior of the unit as this could damage the painted finish. To ensure efficient operation the back and bottom of the chiller should be cleaned thoroughly. Note: do not use abrasive cleaners!
• Unplug your Husky Refrigerator.
• Wipe the interior with warm water and neutral detergent.
• Dry all surfaces thoroughly.
• Use mild soapy water to clean the door seal.
If you have any further questions, please refer to your user manual or call 1300 762 219. Kind regards, Husky Team.
