My old aircon was noisy hence why I replaced it, Had the Kelvinator KWH62HRE (6.0kW) installed and (Very noisy) even on the lowest fan setting although cooling is very good. I received unhelpful poor customer service, Unfortunately I'm not happy with it will avoid using Kelvinator products.
customer care cant help
a great air con ,but when you try to understand the manual ,well that another issue and no one a electolux knows ,do we need drainage ,the book say only if its a cooling unit , if recyle you dont ,but if you do have drainage ,baring in mine there is no drain plug where does all the extra bulk of the evapouration water go that is not used to spray over the cooling fins as it explains ?,there is no drainage hole ,yet they give you a drainage pan to screw up, so if there is no drainage plug then a hole what do we do?,have been reading comments on line with this same issue and yet electrolux dose nothing to let us know ,sometimes the answers we get from custmer care led to more questions ,even the Good Guys are not impressed ,can you help
Purchased in February 2021 at The Good Guys for $1,000.00.
Noise! Noise! Noise!
It cools well but even on the lowest fan setting this unit absolutely roars. The compressor is quiet - the fan is the issue. It is so loud conversation is difficult and the television needs to be turned right up to hear it. I avoid using it!
The 35 y/o brown Westinghouse unit I had before it was MUCH MUCH quieter but unfortunately it died. This Kelvinator was a waste of money. I bought it as an easy option to fit in the same hole. I regret it now. I wish I had the hole bricked up and spent the extra on a split system.

Absolutely brilliant. Life changing
I am significantly disabled and a renter, I couldn't be happier with my aircon. I installed it in a window so i can take it with me. I did need to get a 15amp power point installed by an electrician but the air con works brilliantly and it's reduced my electricity bills, significantly from using portable air cons. It's keeps my unit and me cool enough to comfortably stay out of hospital.

This reverse cycle air conditioner is fantastic!
Just prior to the heatwave starting we purchased our Kelvinator reverse cycle air conditioner and just in time. If ever this product was going to be tested it was in this unusually hot summer. Let me say our Kelvinator passed with flying colours! There are so many choices on the market all claiming to be great and it can be a bit confusing not to mention expensive especially if you buy the wrong one. I will admit to being rather nervous initially but very relieved when it surpassed even my high expectations. With the heatwave conditions our Ke...lvinator kept us all cool throughout. Do I recommend this product to others in the market absolutely in fact I highly recommend it because to put it simply it works great and is reasonably priced when comparing it to other products on the market it comes with a remote control and its easy to install which is always a bonus.
Great Product 2 years on with heavy use!
We've used this unit all year round now for about 2 years. With the varying Melbourne climate needed a box air conditioner to replacing the existing units position in the wall. We looked for a powerful, reliable and good 2 year warrantee which was only offered by Kelvinator. 2 years down the road and being used for15 hours per day have had no problems whatsoever. A great choice if you're looking to replace a pre existing box system.
The Kelvinator website specifies an outside noise level of 64 dBa for this model. However after I had purchased and unpacked the item I found a big sticker on the frame warning that it's outside noise is actually 76 dBa. I should have returned the item because of the manufacturer's misrepresentation. instead I chose to have it installed and now have an air conditioner that is unacceptable loud for a residential environment. The inside noise can be heard from every part of the house. I only purchased this style of air conditioner because it fitted into an existing hole in a brick wall where an old unit had been. I regret my decision. It is a clunky dinosaur.

I have a Kelvinator KWH62HRE and I keep getting an E1 error message and then it shuts down, only on for 5 minutes
Hi Kerrie F,
Marina from Electrolux here.
If the issue you have raised is still not resolved at this time, can you please email me your contact details at email@example.com attention Marina. Ticket Number 1224785.
We would really like to assist you.
I am after the actual db levels to decide wether it can be used domestically in a living rom with a TV on, the spec says 1 figure but the reviews say it has a warning sticker of 78. If it's to noisy for a typical lounge room environment please advise
I haven't used this particular model inside a home. It's installed in our work shed. The db rating on the link here, shows it to be 56 db. It is noisier than I'd like for an air conditioner inside a home environment. . https://www.appliancesonline.com.au/kelvinator-6kw-window-box-reverse-cycle-air-conditioner-kwh62hre/
I also have a small Kelvinator in my office, and it's a bit too noisy for my liking. I use an 8 kw Panasonic in the main lounge, dining area, and it's really quiet, and actually manages to cool - heat the whole house easily. I'd go for that rather than the Kelvinator.
Here are the indoor sound decibel ratings from Kelvinator's website for 3 different kW models. They only show the high and low fan speeds.
HIGH FAN SETTING - Indoor sound pressure dBA
KWH62HRE (6.0kW) - 56
KWH53HRE (5.3kW) - 55
KWH39HRE (3.9kW) - 50
LOW FAN SETTING - Indoor sound pressure dBA
KWH62HRE (6.0kW) - 50
KWH53HRE (5.3kW) - 49
KWH39HRE (3.9kW) - 44
