Glad we got this fridge
It's well made and the dimensions were spot on for the space we were installing it at. I really like how quiet it is - seriously, I have sometimes checked to confirm that it is still on!

Can't beat it for quiet running
Purchased this fridge 2 1/2 months ago as our then fridge/freezer was becoming extremely noisy when starting up. So far, very impressed by how quiet this fridge is. Can barely hear it running and because it is an inverter fridge, there are no loud start-up noises apart from the very occasional refrigerant 'gurgle". It has ample space in the fridge (my previous side-by-side fridge had very narrow shelves) and the humidity control on the crisper seems to work very well, once you have worked out how to set it. Plenty of strip lighting within the f...ridge as well so items are easy to see. There is supposedly specialty lighting in the crisper to preserve fresh produce for longer, but can't really say if actually works or just a gimmick. The fridge/freezer temperature controls are integrated into the door panel, so very unobtrusive and also very easy to use. The handles are also integrated into the doors, so no messy finger marks all over the doors - provided of course you use the handles! Because the unit has a glass front, you can even write your shopping list or notes on it! It took almost 24 hours to get the freezer to the right temperature but since then it has maintained a consistent temperature in both the fridge and freezer (used a thermometer to check for about a week). When the unit was delivered one of the seals was warped and didn't fit properly on the freezer door. The Mitsubishi rep was there within a day to deliver a new seal, so excellent service from the local dealer as well. My only minor grumble, like all modern fridges, there is lots of plastic. This unit is also extremely economical to run and we have noticed a reduction in our power usage (have an app to check daily usage). The 5 year warranty on the entire unit (not just the motor) is also a good selling point. Overall, a great fridge.
If Mitsubishi built cars like the do fridges they would be the top selling vehicle. We purchased our fridge 18 months ago and are extremely happy with the product. If you don't buy one of these fridges then good luck with what you purchase.
Love my mitsubishi l4 650lt fridge
Best fridge I have ever owned, consistent temperature, heaps of room, love the door handles as it stops fingers touching the fridge panels. Easy to clean, just love it.would definitely recommend this fridge
I am disappointed at Mitsubishi Fridge
I did research and thought I bought a top fridge 2 years ago. However I now really regretted the decision.
1. the material Mitsubishi is using for their fridge and freezer is really sub standard as the panel/track for the drawers in the freezer broken after one and half years as well as the ice making tray
2. The ice making tray was swapped under warranty however the panel/track apparently can't fixed unless the whole fridge is changed
3. I tried to trace up the customer service again and had no answer
4. Through the process, thoug...

sure fire winner, japanese quality
this is the best fridge I have ever owned. It keeps constant temperature and the controls are on the outside..never had to adjust them yet, except to see what they do. i did a lot of research, read all the Whirlpool (blog site for product reviews, like this one) site.
Every review was positive and people really happy. I was going to buy an LG but had one previously, it was very noisy. The Mitsubishi is so quiet I forget its there. I dont have any negatives, other than its big..doorways are a challenge but dont care. TOTALLY 100% in love with my fridge. And its 2 years later.
Love the look, style and convenience of this fridge/freezer.
One small complaint in opening and closing doors on occasion if both open at the same time, need to close one before the other so they fit properly and I often forget which comes first right or left but a minor design glitch.
Easy to use and clean and keeps food at easy to control temp winter or summer.
I would recommend this unit.
The old fridge had the death rattles. You know that terrible rattle the compressor makes when a fridge is old and runs almost constantly trying to keep cold...... So I wandered the internet until I only had a couple to choose from. Then I spent 5 hours in Harvey Norman comparing shelf strength, design, door weight, whether the door closes properly.... You get the idea, I studied everything. I got down to two choices then I looked for user reviews online. A lot of people said this fridge was quiet and that sounded like heaven.

Query vegetable crisper
Love my Mitsubishi L4 Grande except I find my vegetables when put in crisper(i.e. carrots, celery) are limp the next day. Have had humidity on high and low and still same result. Have also placed vegetables in left hand crispers, and same result. Any suggestions would bbe appreciated. Very quiet, easy to clean..
Its a good fridge except for one standout issue
We bought this fridge as we needed more width in a fridge, our current side by side just wasn't cutting it. We bought from Harvey Norman on special, all good. A few months after using, its a good fridge, quiet, economical, etc BUT the stainless steel doors dent REALLY easily, like the slightest tap with an object dents the panel! it seems to be quite thin. Apart from this, its a good fridge.
Inexpensive to run
Great fridge, very very quiet when running, ample room to place item on the shelves and doors, very economical to run. Has two ice trays with tray beneath to store ice, great for storing eggs, butter and cheeses, overall, a really good fridge and easy to keep clean and tidy.
I bought rhis fridge after reading some great reviews and i wasnt disappointed. It maintains consistent temperatures in all compartsments. It runs very quietly and is efficient on electricity. The compartment are easy to remove for cleaning out and wiping over. I would not hesitate in recommending this product to others.
Cannot fault this fridge
Purchased this fridge around 2 months ago from Harvey Norman on a good deal for close to $2000. Absolutely no complaints, appreciate how quiet the fridge is compared to our previous Westinghouse.
I've never had a Mitsubishi fridge previously so appreciated the standard 5 year warranty which gives some piece of mind.

Maybe not perfect, but pretty close
Firstly - does it do the job? Yes. It maintains a good temperature in both the fridge and freezer compartments, no excessive moisture, and the fruit/veggies stay fresh for a decent amount of time. It is also remarkably quiet, and (although I was initially not sure about the black bar in the centre of the stainless steel) it looks really good. There is no built in water dispenser (a positive in my mind as they are a pain to keep clean, take up space, and frequently need expensive filters replaced. The ice maker is manual, but does the job. It's ...made in Thailand rather than Japan, but really well put together so I am confident it will last. Issues - after 6 months only one. I've found that if you open the left door *slowly*, there is a chance that the flap that is used to seal the gap between the left & right hand side doors does not fold down completely. The result is when closing the left door, if the right door is already closed, the flap can hit the outside of the right hand side door and prevent it from closing. It doesn't happen all that often, but it does happen and I suspect could lead to the flap itself being damaged eventually. If the door is opened quickly, then the issue never happens. Other than that, no issues. Some general comments - it is the 'mini' which means I would have loved to get the extra fridge shelf space the larger version has..... but the taller fridge would not have left enough space overhead for cooling (this beastie needs 10cm - a lot more than some manufacturers) so had to go the mini. Saying so, the freezer size is the same as the larger model and the fridge compartment is still big compared to most other fridges. If you can fit the fridge in your kitchen (10 cm gap overhead, 6 cm gap behind, and 3cm either side) I'd definitely consider the bigger version. Oh, when installing, the plastic feet protectors took some time to figure out how to actually fit properly. It would also be nice if the display could show the actual temperature rather than what it is set to. I know they should be the same, but still. In short - a fantastic fridge. Highly recommended. #Update - 2 years on, and still going strong. Nothing has broken. The weird issue with the door flap we have in general got used to. There is always the risk that one of the teenagers will slam the door and damage the flap, but it hasn't happened - yet. All in all, still very happy with the purchase.
Love this fridge
We have had this fridge for around 6 months now and even over Christmas, I still had room. We are a family of 5, who buy loads of fruit and veg. I have noticed that vegetables last so much longer in this fridge.
It is super quiet too! Would highly recommend.
Perfect for the Family!
This fridge is one of the best I've had. Firstly, I love the simple design of the fridge. The fridge always keeps the food cold and always maintains a good temperature. Fruit and vegetables stay fresh even after storing them for a couple of days which is great as it saves money! Would definitely recommend it to my friends.
Amazing Product, 100% Recommendation
This refrigerator is the best one I have ever used. It has adjustable temperature and is perfect. I got the fridge about three years ago and since then life has been so much easier. I find that the fridge manages to maintain all food to a pristine standard. Im really happy with the product and have already recommended it to everyone I know.
5 Year Warranty sold me
This fridge is everything we wanted in a fridge, 4 doors, 2 for the fridge and 2 for the freezer with 5 drawers in freezer .It is a very good looking which would present well in any household kitchen. Only one draw back which is not really a biggy, they could have put in a couple more shelf height adjustments.
Extremely quiet. My fruit and veg stay fresh in the compartment. Meat can be kept in compartment for days and stay fresh. Very spacious. The look is attractive too. I would strongly recommend this product. Cleaning is easy. Just a wipe would do the work. This was definistrkt a good change of brand for myself.
love it so far
We finally decided to replace our last Samsung fridge with this one. It's noticeably quieter but not silent. I like the door alarm which is useful when kids open the fridge but don't close the door properly. I found the freezer part is not as spacial because all the compartments and drawers actually limit what can be put in. Overall it's a great fridge. I would recommend it.
Questions & Answers
I bought my fridge from Harvey Norman in 2016 and my freezer compartment rubber strips have started to come off and the cooling is not consistent ie didn’t cool and food would go off. Can I please get someone from Mitsubishi to help look at the two problems? Thank you
I’m finding small dints on my doors all over the fridge freezer in really strange places as well like under the handle at the top where no one grabs, anyone else have this problem?
Could Mitsubishi Electric Official please answer:-
Is the spec for fridge housing width of 950mm + 30mm + 30mm = 1010mm critical for warranty?
Our fridge nook is in the midst of a bank of 600mm-deep cabinets. It has 955mm width and 600mm depth and a fully open top. I may be able to enlarge width by an extra 16mm or 32mm, by moving the adjoining cabinets. The clearance would then be 17.5mm each side. The sides will be unapposed for the front-most 265mm (865mm fridge depth + rear clearance, minus 600mm cabinet depth). Is it critical to have 30mm each side despite the top being open and the sides only partly- apposed, or is it simply to facilitate installation and removal? Will the narrower width of our housing void warranty?
hi. im not an expert but think I have the reasons for min clearance. i double checked this before installing mine. . From memory, the condenser can get very hot.and not operate correctly without adequate clearance and airflow. for example, if the confined spaces are too small, that air heats up, feeds into the freezing cooling mechanisms, making it overheat. I read this in the manual or priduct info somewhere..I dont know about warranty issues but its better to provide more space, than too little. hope that helps.
My unit is installed with very minimum clearance on one side & the back. Plenty of clearance at top & one side.
We had a service call relating to temp control & serviceman did not remark on the installation.
I made some effort to check temp at top & on low clearance side but it's just warm & often you can't detect anything! I think (I'm no expert) the clearances you describe will be fine but make a habit of checking for excess heat build up particularly on hot summer days.
