Broke down in 10 months, MHIAA not responding and taking any action

Bought this unit trusting the brand "is the highest quality in the market".
Into its 10th month, made a big noise and stopped cooling properly. On a 38° day, used to cool the whole house easy down to 25°, now doesn't cool below 28° even if it's only 28° outside.
Tech came in, took log from the machine. I had to call several times to get a feedback, which was that they said see it's working on light load, but say it's normal!!!
It's good until something goes wrong. Then forget it...
Horrible brand, I do not suggest them at all. Show details

Good unit but too noisy

This is a great unit performing well thru summer and now winter. It is however noisy and we can hear it whilst sitting in the lounge. Several efforts by the installers has improved things but has not eliminated the sound coming into the house from the outside unit. We often turn it off because of the noise level. It disappoints us when the Daikin we had for the previous ten or so years was super quiet. I am not sure if this is normal for the Mitsubishi unit but I would hope it is something that can be rectified. Show details

Great unit so far

The unit is very quiet in operation. Seems well built. I like the fact it has a pump for the drain.
The only issue is that the control panel could be more user-friendly.
I am sure it has all the features, but it takes reading the manual for the more complex settings. Show details

It's so far, so good

We don't have any issue, except it's stopped working after a week! I raised my request to fix it, and it took a while, sending someone to have a look, they found the whole outdoor system has to be replaced, as it's faulty. It happened, and we don't have any issue after all. Show details

So far so good

It's just what I need for my small cozy 3 bedroom house. Easy to use, the bill looks alright and my house keeps in a suitable temperature. The deal I got back to then was wonderful!!!! Show details

Great unit but not the greatest installation

The air conditioning is great, but the installer's workers were rushing through the whole installation. They cracked my ceiling while pulling apart the old gas unit. Then I had to supervise one man so he will connect the outlets properly. He was doing a very dodgy job ( hot air/cold would have escaped to the ceiling) as he wanted to go home ASAP. The electrician was very professional, but the guy who supposes to explain how to use the unit did know much either. He has left the manual/ instructions but not for this unit. So I had to call the boss who came to my home 3 times to explain to me how to use the unit and wrote my own user manual. Show details

Unhappy with the product

I've had issues at the beginning where aircon was NOT working at all, blowing hot air on a 38 degrees heat. My house was a sauna. Had multiple people came out to try and fix, technician says unit is definitely faulty and need replacement but then came back and managed to fix and was working great. After few weeks it wasn't performing well, still to this day not performing well on hot days. MANNIX suggested they will come out on a hot day but now we haven't had any hot days as summer is over. So I guess we'll have to wait until till next summer.
Technician says the unit (box) has been placed in the wrong area, not enough airflow which may cause it to not working as well, but MANNIX disagree and will not relocate the box. Show details

Disappointed

The ducted AC struggles when temps hit 35 I have to use a ceiling fan as well as the AC
Another 2000 would have given me a daikin , the same as my Neighbour , their ac works superbly
The ceiling was also damaged by the installers and it took a bit to get them back to repair it
My unit also had a fault and a part had to be replaced. It was replaced but had to wait about two weeks . Not great for an expensive household item. Not the best choice. Show details

Hi. I have been told that Mitsubishi Heavy is the best of the best. I am to replace an old ducted system. I am always reluctant to install anything without trialling the product first. Do you have a showroom in Sydney to checkout your options for a ducted unit. Thanks

Hi Mitsubishi Reps,

What is the difference with

FDUA100VNPWVH vs FDUA100AVNPWVH

Specs all look the same.

And also FDUA125VNPWVH vs FDUA125AVNPWVH

Thank you.

I had my system installed last February a FDUA 100vnpwvh 10kw and have had various problems mainly with the installer not knowing what he was doing. I am finding the control panel really sensitive so when changing temperatures it goes to Auto which I do not want. I have to fiddle about for ages to get it back to in this case heating, is there any way to rectify this?

Hello Susan, Thank you for reaching out to us. I am sorry to hear that you had some issues with the installation. To resolve this , have you tried to have the installer return to rectify these issues ?

No way! I have already had to other firms fixing up his work and have photographs of what they found he hadn’t done properly and what they did to make things safe and functional.

Details

The Mitsubishi FDUA Series is available in eight different models, ranging from 7.1kW to 20kW. The 7.1kW single phase is suitable for a smaller home, as it uses only one source of power with a reduced amount of energy. For more spacious homes, the three-phase 20kW unit may be better suited, as it draws energy from three sources of power.

Each air conditioner in the FDUA series allows you to control different air zones. If there are any empty rooms, you can help ensure that energy is not being wasted by turning the air conditioning down to a low setting or by shutting it off completely - while continuing to use the air conditioning in other rooms.

Features:

  • Integrated air purifier reduces allergens caught in filters and controls growth of mould and bacteria. However, this AC isn’t self-cleaning - it requires a professional clean every couple of years to ensure that it’s working at optimal functionality.
  • Wi-Fi operation optional, with separate purchase of a specialised adaptor
  • Various timers, including an on/off timer and sleep mode
