don't bother

75 ltr fridge a few years old and out of warranty . The mother board is playing up and should be easy to change , however they DON'T HAVE PARTS and if you aren't on the sunshine coast there is no service

Can't fault warranty

Bought the 75L a year and 2 weeks ago. Worked great until this week. Where its decided it doesn't want to cool anymore. No error codes are thrown. It just sits at the same temperate regardless where its set at. Pretty dissapointed.

Edited to add. They fixed the issue within 2 months of the problem occurring. Worked well for over a year and it did the same thing again.

Was sent back for warranty a second time and Kickass replaced the fridge under warranty to the newer model. Show details

Fridge temp all over the place

Ive had the fridge 8 months and its been in twice for repairs now. 2 of those months its been in getting repaired. One was over Christmas, I had to borrow a mates fridge for that trip. Doesn't hold temperature is all over the place. Really disappointed really like the fridge when its running properly. Wanted to buy another one to leave in my camper trailer. But after reading all the other reviews with same issues dont think I will now. Show details

Warranty Issue

A friend bought a 75L KICKASS Fridge/Freezer (5 yr warranty). At 4 years it stopped getting cold. We happened to find a dealer by accident, Liverpool (top bloke)
The dealer found a un-repairable leak & put in a claim. Australian Direct started ripping into him for finding the Problem without getting direction from them? In a word - trying to avoid the claim!

I posted a review on Kickass site, it was posted - then quickly taken down

It's not a 75 litre fridge

It's not hard to calculate the total volume of both bins. Use the bin dimensions on the website, they are accurate. The bin volumes add to 67 litres. When I contacted Kickass they advised that the solid divider between the bins is included as part of the volume and that this is 'industry standard'. Right.
If you use the baskets that come with the fridge the useable volume is down to about 60 litres.
Another issue is that there are no holes in the base of the fridge cover corresponding to the drainage holes in the bins. In other words if you need to drain one of the bins you need to remove the cover, which is ridiculous.
On a positive note the fridge is incredibly efficient. Show details

Poor performance, refunded under warranty

Has anyone else had poor performance on their Kickass/evakool 75L dual zone fridge in a car or ute canopy? I've got a brand new one giving me endless grief! Great design/features, but fails at its primary function!

Set to -18 degrees most days it reaches -5 (worst was +3), no errors and plenty of voltage. Evakool looked at it under warranty but said it was working fine saying it was car voltage, but they tested my car and said it was fine (13v at the fridge). They ended up providing a full refund in the end. Went with a Weaco which has worked perfectly in the same car.. shame as I would have preferred to support a local company.

I will be calling kickass today, but if I can ask the question and maybe get some answers that would be great

have a 75 litre dual zone fridge and the right bin is for food and the left bin is for ice, the food bin will not hold temp it is freezing and you can't change temp through bluetooth or manually

Looking to buy a second fridge for my camping trips. I like the look of the Kickass 75L dual zone fridge and I have been buying from Klaeton's company since he started selling online years ago with only positive experiences.

I'm seeing only negative reviews for this product. Has anything been done to rectify these temperature issues? Is the product more stable now than it was 18months ago when the most recent reviews here were purchased?
