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.

Purchased in May 2019 at Appliances Online for $913.00.

Very Quiet


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.

Very quiet


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!

MR-420EK-W (White)

I purchased my Mitsubishi MR420EKWA on the 15th May 2019 and it sounds as if it is running all the time now.. At first it seemed to be shutting off but in the last 48 hours it seems that it is continuing to run for hours at a time.. There seems to be no vacuum when you shut the freezer door and when you close the refrigerator door it looks as if the freezer door bounces open so i have to check that it's shut..At this point the refrigerator has been running non stop for hours..What could be the problem?..

I had the same thing with the doors. What I had to do was make sure the fridge door is 'slammed tight'. Then I make sure the freezer door is reshut. It sounds unusual to be hearing the noise all the time. Mine tends to come on at night for maybe a minute or two and then stops. Perhaps you should contact Mitsubishi.

A question for Mitsubishi.
Could you do something with the freezer door?
It doesn't have the sort of grip like the fridge door, hence the 'bounce' open effect whenever you shut the fridge door.
