MSZ-GL Series

Absolutely love this powerful aircon but hate the remote. Am I the only one who get frustrated with its operation?! Wish they designed the remote with some LED or night mode where I could see the temperature and other settings on the screen of the remote without turning on the light. Also it would have been great if they could do a simple timer like 30 minutes or one hour or something that you can easily set the timer instead keying in the actual time.
Has anyone found any easy method for this?

I agree always have trouble with remote at night and end up changing settings cause I can’t see them have to turn the light on to rectify

MSZ-GL50VGD (4.8kW)

Does temperature matters in electric consumption? Like 25 degree vs 30 degree? Same amount of kwatts consumed or there's difference? Because if its the same like it will consume 5K kwatt then planning to use my heater which is 2K kwatt. Thank you.

Yes temperature matters. It doesn't run/heat all the time, when heating around 5KW, then when at temperature almost nothing. They could be similar electric consumption over a day, it depends on how efficient each brand/model is.

MSZ-GL Series

Hi
My MSZ-GL80VGD is only swinging (wide vane) from the center to the left but not to the right. The remote control shows the position as being all the way to the right but the actual flaps are pointing directly forward.
No mater how many times I press the Wide Vane button the the flaps would not turn to the right only center to left?

Hi,

Try these quick checks first:
Double-check it is running in the correct mode:

Just in case someone has gone and changed it on you.

Make sure the filters are clean.

Apart from these quick checks, feel free to call us on 1300 651 808 or lodge a Service Request:

What are the actual noise levels dB inside and for the condenser unit outside?

3 answers
Carl Millen
Carl Millen

Hi, ours is the larger unit. 7.8 or 8kW I think.
Inside we never hear it. To check if it is on we look to see if the vents are open and/or the little green light is on.
Outside you would have to be standing right beside it to hear it.

Kishor Dabke
Kishor Dabke

That is not an answer to my question; it is an opinion. There are precise units dB for measuring noise levels and I am asking for the actual values inside and outside.

Perhaps you can send me the specification sheets which I prefer as an engineer to get detailed and exact answers.

It sounds like your dimensions are on par with our garage/home office. We are in QLD so I don't know how it would stack up to Tassie. Probably the slow heat up time would be a downside, but the quiet levels would be great for a living are.

Has this machine have a filter ? and what is needed to clean and how?

It will have outlet filters. My model is the 7.1 but assuming they are similar you need to open the hatch at the front of the indoor unit. It lifts upwards. The filters will be visible and slide out easily. A bit hard to explain but here but it is quite simple.

MSZ-GL71VGD (7.1kW)

just had my 7.1kw fitted and it is running fine but when I went outside to check the outdoor unit the fan wasn't working is this normal as it wasn't a very warm day when it was installed and I tested it...?

I wouldn’t be worried if the unit is at the required temperature inside the house you will find it will probably stop spinning outside as it only runs when expelling the warm/cold air from the inside of the house, it will run when required which is part of the energy saving.

Stewpot
Stewpot

When first started the outside unit will not run for 10 minutes or so. That is normal. It may also stop if inside the house is at the correct temperature and this will save power. If the inside unit works properly nothing is wrong. The outside unit can be very quiet so you need to carefully check if the fan is turning.
One way to test it is to turn the inside temperature to its lowest setting and turn the fan to the highest speed. Outside unit should start running after about 10 minutes.

It left us speecless.
However,we read warranty doesn’t said anything regarding gas leakage.

Hi , find the paperwork concerning the installation , if found see if installation warranty is more than two years if so ring company to redo flares
( most probably where leak is ) if out of installation warranty period , you may be still able to talk to manager and plead your case of faulty workmanship and not bag his company on social media . Regas and repair of flares by a honest Friggie on a 2.5kw should only be around $350 at most for a back to back installation . Good luck .
