White and the Right Deal
Due to Covid lockdown in Melbourne I was not in a position to go shopping for a new Top Mount fridge so I turned to the internet to discover two specialist upmarket kitchen outlets E&S in Victoria and Hart & Co in West Australia both stocked Mitsubishi along with their other high end brands, my requirements such as fitting into my limited available space, along with a large freezer, sealed chiller and more than adequate vegetable crisper.
It is available in Stainless Steel, Shiny Black and hard to get White.
To top it off it is covered with a 5...
Not perfect by any means!!
The Veneer of the Fridge is buckled and uneven ! This is hard to unsee. When I touch the fridge the veneer seems to have air bubbles in it and is uneven as though its not been sealed properly? Thoughts Mitsubishi? I
The Vegetable Crisper is really hard to open and sticks when trying to open and close ??
Ive had the fridge for a week and would return if this was on offer? Is it?
Reliable and performs well
Purchased this fridge in September 2016.
• Unit has performed flawlessly over the past four years.
• We keep thermometers in our fridges and freezers to keep an eye on the internal temperatures. The internal temperature of this unit remains virtually the same across all four seasons even though the ambient air temperate in our kitchen ranges from 8°C in winter to 35°C in summer.
• My partner and I tend to use three quarters of the fridge space after a weekly shop, so I suspect a family of four would require a larger unit.
• Overall, highly recommend this unit. We will certainly consider Mitsubishi fridges again in the future if/when we replace this fridge.

If you love vegetables do NOT buy this fridge!!!
This purchase was a huge mistake. I had a BEKO upside down fridge which admittedly had a couple of issues so the company, to their credit took the fridge back. The retailer offered me the opportunity to upgrade or downgrade. I decided to do a slight upgrade and get the this fridge. WHAT A MISTAKE! vegetable drawer is more of a pocket than a drawer and constantly getting stuck and you have to pull and push it. It will not last long, as for freshness, non existent. The rest of the fridge is what you would expect I guess, although not a lot of cho...ice in heights etc. Freezer is ample and temp is great, I expect no less from Mitsubishi. I wish I had kept the BEKO fridge because I love my vegetables FRESH and this fridge the veg drawer is an afterthought. Not recommended.
Great Fridge! Great warranty!
Have to admit I was a bit iffy at first when purchasing a Mitsubishi fridge it not being one of their "normal" product line. But when it comes down to it... they do air conditioners and what is a fridge other than a self contained unit?
The two points that really won me over were the inverter compressor (less noise than a regular fridge) and the 10 year warranty on said compressor. Past that nil complaints, well laid out and maintains a consistent temperature.
Can't fault it; 3 years after purchase
It's been three years since I purchased this small fridge and there have not been any problems. It's very quiet, no leaks and frost free. The ice cube tray is hard to get back on its little shelf once removed so I just took that shelf out. I am pleased with this fridge and would buy another Mitsubishi.
Very Quiet Running - Doing The Job
Purchased the Mitsubishi because of good reviews on rating sites, and the quietness of the inverter system. It certainly runs quietly. Doing all the cooling correctly - though it hasn't faced a Queensland summer yet. Trays are glass - so easy to clean. Good options to set up shelves and door shelves - though the design is pretty standard. Not sure if the crisper will last the distance. It gets jammed and skewed - even with only a few items in it.
Internal lights are pretty poor - they are really low power, and these old eyes can't make out th...

I bought the Mitsubishi fridge after the faulty Samsung one. My kids said its been downgraded, cause the interior and exterior look isn't as fasionable as the Samsung ones, but its all good, all compartments are working perfectly, very quiet and reliable, no hassle, and cost less than Samsung. Highly recommended.

Poor quality fridge do not buy
Got it last week from Harvey Norman. They charge 50 for delivery and 15 extra for unpacking (great). Nightmare started with the driver who rushed to unpack and leave within 3 minutes. Forcing me to sign off the customer delivery docket and run away. After 1 hour I noticed the top door skin is loose and it's like a paper attached to the door. You press the skin, it goes inward and bounce back. I've never seen a fridge like this before. It's like a heavy iron rubbish. The compressor isn't as quiet as it was described. Very loud when running and r...unning quite frequently. I have got an empty fridge so there's no storage inside. Calling Harvey Norman right away and they rejected my return request. They arrange the service from Mitsutibishi to come along for an assessment which I haven't heard back yet. Great luck, first day purchase from Harvey Norman, a brand new fridge, now the manufacture needs to repair it on Day 1!! What a quality. By the way, Harvey Norman has got really poor attitude of after sales service. I've got problem with JB Hifi white goods before but they took away the machine and refund me immediately. Communication is also way better than Harvery Norman's sales and after-sales. They were just very rudely telling you by customer law they won't return the fridge unless it's major fault!!! The guy I spoke to on the phone told me the fact skin nearly felling off from the door is just a "cosmetic" issue and you can still "use" the fridge! What a great response to customer. If you spend $1,000 to purchase a new phone and got scratch or shelling coming off but you can still make phone call and text message, it's not a big deal is that what he is trying to tell me? I'll never buy anything ever from HN again.

I bought this last week - so far so good. All compartments working (freezer freezes, fridge keeps stuff cold, not frozen). What I have noted is that it is very very quiet - and this is noticeable in a house that echoes. After reading Choice magazine and noting that the best value for money fridges are top mounted (freezer at the top), with about 5 cm on all sides so it has airflow to maintain temperature without working too hard (and therefore being less efficient), I am happy this 4-out-of-5-star energy efficient fridge, as well as being one of the very few fridges that could fit in the recess of my new kitchen (moved in recently). Haven't got around to cleaning actual dirt/grime/food of it yet.

Love this fridge
Brilliant! The fruits and vegies kept alot longer.
Unusually spacious. Freezer component is as perfect in that even my garlic is still fresh after almost 3 months
No more frost burns and vegie rot!
There is a slight comment on the sound it nakes as I was told due to the inverter technology, it periodically makes a sound like a plane gently taking off. No dramas!
Good overall and very energy efficient
Pro: Very low noise when operating. Ambient temperature does not seem to rise much. Easy to clean in general. The ice maker is wonderful.
Con: often the fridge compartment is too cold that vegetables will freeze and become inedible. And the door at times will be very hard to open. It seems like the magnetic force might be too strong?
quite and cold
Hi, we purchased this fridge as a replacement for our old admiral fridge ( made by hover) , the old fridge was 22 years old and never had a problem with it until recently it started to not hold items cold in fridge section any more (note freezer section still worked fine) because of it's age we decided to put repair cost towards a new fridge . We have had this fridge for about 2 months and the fist thing I noticed or should I say didn't notice was any noise coming from the compressor while it is working on cycle. Well ok you can hear it workin...g but you have got to be literally with your ear glued to it , it is the quietest fridge I have ever heard , the ice try is a nice touch as is the slide out meat /chesse storage draw . individual controls for fridge and freezer make it easy to adjust temperatures, adjustable self heights in fridge and freezer are very handy . door seals are very firm ( sometimes to firm you really have to pull on handle to open ) as for door handles rather than separate handles Mitsubishi has made the handles full length of the doors a very nice looking design. Overall we are very happy with the performance and look of this fridge . Yes also the full 5 year Warranty from Mitsubishi is a bonus.
Just love our New Fridge
Not too many fridges around today are rated with 4stars & have an INVERTER, which is a great bonus in today's high cost of power, and it is a welcome new addition to our household.
It is so super quiet, you wouldn't even know it was on, and so very easy to keep clean, inside and out.
No messy metal grilled shelves, that take a little extra time to clean, it has easy to clean tempered glass shelving, which wipes easily, with very little effort.
Unique styling of the door handles, keeps finger prints on the front panel to a minimum.
Elegant fridge. Had an initial shock with smells on delivery and the big bold print chlorohexane warning.
Seems to function fairly well.
Door seals very tight which is great! I love this fridge especially the top fridge door shelving for lots of eggs!
I was hesitating initially whether to take this or the 402L Samsung but decided to pay more despite drawers and shelves didn't look as nice.
There's a little mark like a drop of varnish on the top trim of the fridge door and that was disappointing. Being brand new I expect it to be very mu...
Fabulous and reliable
We have had this fridge for 6 years now with no issues at all. It was one of the cheapest in the store at the time with stainless steel look and we are very pleased. It came with 5 years warranty which is part of why we bought it but we have not need to use it.
An excellent fridge
Maintains constant even temperature no matter the season. No service problems to date. Generally speaking is an excellent fridge. I have had several other brands over time but this one stands out from the rest.
Is so quite it cannot be heard when running
Easy to clean.
Would purchase again
I didn't know you could buy Mitsubishi Fridges until I went to buy a fridge, I hummed and harrred over it as I didn't know what to expect with this otherwise well known brand, though not well known in the Electrical/white goods side of things for me, however a known brand all the same, but I took a chance, and I love it, I'm glad I bought it.
I've had it for about a year or so now and so far so good, it's Temp is great and consistant, it's not noisy, just on off standard running noise however it's not "noisy", it has a low noise level. Anyt...hing that has a motor is bound to have some, noise, it's expected to, some are just more noisy than others that's all, and this one isn't one of the noisy ones, thankfully. I love the eye level ice tray, it's so much easier to put the tray in after refilling, my other fridge tray was set high. I think the only drawback is probably no options to choose a shelf level height. Apart from the bottom shelf on the crisper, their are only two other shelves and only those level slots that they're in, it would be good to be able to lower or heighten a shelf if I needed to, however I haven't need to yet but to have that option would be good incase but really this is no biggy and not a good reason to not buy it, it's no issue at the end of the day to lay things down instead, if you don't have room in the door. And the two half size door pocket shelves that are below the egg trays are adjustable, so that's pretty good too to have if need. All up, I love this fridge, it's done me right so far, from MY experience with this Mitsubishi Whitegood, I highly recommend it, it's an excellent fridge. :-)
We've had problems with this fridge from the beginning. Firstly, nothing would stay cold and we had to get the service people in to change the thermometer. First service guy broke the light cover and the second they sent had never serviced a fridge! He managed to mangle the polystyrene packing around the back while installing the thermometer. This all took a month or so. The fridge worked a little better but we have to turn it up almost the whole way to get a decent mid temperature but any cheese in the dairy shelf goes mouldy fast and the temp...erature is unreliable. Wish I had never purchased. Otherwise its easy to clean. UPDATE: To the credit of Mitsubishi they sent a service person again who this time knew what he was doing and the fridge is finally working properly.
Questions & Answers
Could you please tell me how to clean the glass shelves? If there is a spill (it happens) the liquid goes between the glass shelf and plastic frame and i can find no way of pulling it apart to clean it? Really unhygienic and unsafe. Every other fridge i know of the frame unclips, what am I missing here? Please help?
I woke this morning to a very loud noise coming from my 1 week old fridge. I opened the freezer door and the food inside had defrosted. I opened the fridge door and seemed as items weren’t as cold as they should be.
Over a period of of time the noise has gotten quieter. However every time l open both doors the fridge seems to stop....some part like a fan... I am don’t enough to o say what part.
What is going on?...
I just bought this fridge in used condition, seems great but for some reason bread in the freezer will not freeze, it stays soft, ice cubes and everything else is good. Is this normal for the model or is it faulty?
